Everton have sacked Marco Silva following their thumping 5-2 defeat to Liverpool on Wednesday.
The loss left the club in 18th place in the table after just four wins from 15 Premier League games this season.
Silva was appointed in May 2018 and led the club to eighth place last season and after a £100 million outlay on players they were expected to fight for the top six this season, instead they have regressed.
The Toffees initially tried to sign Silva to replace Ronald Koeman in October 2017 but Watford refused to let him leave the club.
He finally made it there seven months later after Sam Allardyce had taken over until the end of the season and spent nearly £90 million in his first summer, mainly on bringing in Richarlison from his former club.
The win against Southampton before the international break allowed the 42-year-old manager a stay of execution but the loss against the struggling Canaries put the pressure back on.
Former Everton boss David Moyes is 11/10 favourite at the bookies to be the next permanent manager with Eddie Howe and former Toffees' midfielder Mikel Arteta also high in the betting.
