It’s been an interesting few weeks in the life of Ronald Koeman.
Prior to the international break, his Everton side were enjoying a run of six wins in nine – losing just once in a tight affair with Tottenham Hotspur – and honing in on the Premier League’s top four.
But a difficult few days have put Everton’s campaign in serious danger of petering out. Seamus Coleman is now sidelined for the foreseeable future after Neil Taylor’s horror tackle, whilst an embarrassing defeat in the Merseyside derby has seen his side fall eight points away from Champions League reckoning.

Football FanCast’s Tom Skinner tries to dissect the madness that’s continually swirling around the man in the Goodison Park hot seat.
