Everton are currently 18th in the relegation zone – level on points with 17th-placed West Ham United, while just a point or two ahead of the two Wolves and Southampton, who are below them.

Here are today’s odds from oddchecker
Earlier this week, the Scot was the bookmakers’ favorite and his odds are still as low as 6/1 as they drew 2-2 with Leeds United on Wednesday night.
The Hammers have been successful in recent seasons and even qualified for Europe in the last two campaigns, but now unfortunately they’re sitting in 17th place and in terrible shape.
Southampton boss Nathan Jones has jumped up into the top five who left their clubs after his nightmare start alongside Leicester City’s Lampard, Moyes and Brendan Rodgers, while Nottingham Forest manager Steve Cooper is no longer among the favourites.
Nathan Jones (pictured) had a disastrous start to life as Southampton manager without a win
Recently appointed Southampton manager Jones is perhaps the most surprising name among the top five managers likely to be sacked, having arrived just before the international break.
The former Luton boss is already at 12/1 despite only being appointed by the Saints in early November.
It was a disastrous start to life at St Mary’s for Jones after winning one of his first four Premier League games, which sent the club to the bottom of the league table.
Foxes boss Rodgers, who is still among the favorites to be axed, is oddly on odds at 12-1 rather than 10-1 despite a narrow 1-0 loss to Fulham this week, to three losses since returning from to score during the World Cup break.
The cherries started off brilliantly under O’Neil when he took over following the sacking of current Club Brugge manager Scott Parker.
Pressure is now mounting on Bournemouth manager Gary O’Neil (pictured) over poor form
But things are starting to go wrong as they have only managed one win in their last six games, most recently a heavy 3-0 defeat by Manchester United midweek – meaning his odds have dropped from 20/1 to 16/1 fallen – although he remains outside the top 5 and likely gets the nod.
Tottenham boss Antonio Conte (12/1) remains in the top five and is currently more likely to leave than O’Neil, although his chances have changed from 11/4 two days ago.
Conte’s comments that Spurs need a miracle to claim Champions League football next season won’t sit well with chairman Daniel Levy, who historically hasn’t been afraid to pull the trigger.

Spurs bounced back with a huge 4-0 win over Crystal Palace on Wednesday night to put them within reach of the top four, but negotiations over a new deal with the Italian are still stalling amid fears the club are not ambitious is enough.
Like Nathan Jones, Graham Potter is fairly new to the job having only been appointed Chelsea manager in September to replace Thomas Tuchel.
But it has not been a very promising start to life at Stamford Bridge, winning just four out of 11 Premier League games and suffering some shock defeats to Aston Villa, Newcastle and Brighton.
New owner Todd Boehly is unlikely to be stepping down his man any more after making such a statement by sacking Tuchel to bring in the former Brighton & Hove Albion manager and that is why he is at 16/ for the time being 1 stayed.
Forest boss Cooper is out at odds of 20/1 after a 1-0 win over Southampton midweek, a big jump as he has been one of the favorites for most of the season.
Leeds manager Jesse Marsch is another underdog at 25/1 as they continue to flirt with the relegation zone.
