Pundit expects Everton to drop into relegation zone

Three months into the season and there are still no signs that Everton will turnaround their poor form.

Ronald Koeman is heavily under pressure due to the fact that his team have won just eight of their Premier League fixtures.

On top of that, the Merseyside outfit are unlikely to qualify for the knockout rounds of the Europa League after suffering a 2-1 defeat to Lyon on Thursday.

The result means that the club have taken just one point from their first three group matches.

Life does not get any easier for Koeman and his men as they are due to face Arsenal at Goodison Park in a league match on Sunday.

The Toffees defeated the North London club 2-1 on home soil last season, but morale is low this time around and Arsenal will be determined to bounce back from a loss to Watford last weekend.

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has delivered his predictions for the match, and it is not great reading for Everton as he has backed the Gunners to be 3-1 winners.

“This could be a must-win game for Ronald Koeman on Sunday. You look at Craig Shakespeare’s sacking, and Leicester were always tipped to finish mid-table. Everton were a shoe-in for seventh, at least, and Koeman is under severe pressure. They could be in the bottom three after this.”
