Everton: Moshiri can get Goodison rocking by appointing Sean Dyche

Everton have found themselves struggling in the Premier League yet again this season and now Frank Lampard‘s position at Goodison Park could be under serious pressure with a potential change of personnel being considered.

What’s the latest?

According to The Mirror, Everton are one of two Premier League clubs interested in snapping up former Burnley manager Sean Dyche to spearhead their survival opportunities in the top flight.

As per the report, Southampton joins the powers at Goodison in their interest of acquiring the services of Dyche as they also face a challenging relegation scrap over the second half of the season.

Moshiri can get Goodison rocking again

Farhad Moshiri has had a difficult relationship with the Everton supporters since he arrived on the blue side of Merseyside almost seven years ago and has become renowned for his frivolous spending, transfer disasters and a high turnover of managers with Lampard the sixth appointment.

The Toffees are currently 18th in the top flight after a run of poor form that has left the side facing another difficult relegation scrap at the bottom of the table over the second half of the season after collecting just 15 points from a possible 54.

Not only that, Everton crashed out of the FA Cup this week after losing to Manchester United at Old Trafford and a few months ago were knocked out by Bournemouth in the League Cup too, only adding to the pressure mounting on Lampard’s position at Goodison Park.

As a result, the appointment of Dyche at this crucial stage of Everton’s term could be season-defining, an appointment that gets fans back on side with the potential very much being there for a complete U-turn in the league and most importantly, retention of their Premier League status.

First up on the quiz: after what match was Rafa Benitez sacked?

The 51-year-old manager – who was hailed “incredible” by Pep Guardiola – has been out of action since being sacked by Burnley after a decade at Turf Moor, building a squad and securing promotion to the Premier League where he established himself and his team in the top flight for six years before they were relegated back into the Championship at the end of the 2021/22 campaign without him.

Dyche was an expert at surviving in the top flight with league placements of 17th, tenth and 15th during his last three campaigns at the club, so his experience could be invaluable to the Merseysiders in their pursuit to not only survive but also thrive again in the future.

With that being said, it will be interesting to see if Moshiri gives Lampard an opportunity to turn things around at Goodison Park or brings in a new boss to offer a fresh perspective to their challenge. Either way, with Dyche’s experience at the bottom end of the table, Goodison Park could soon be rocking again if he is the desired appointment.
