Everton’s miserable season continued on Sunday as the team were beaten 4-1 by Southampton at St Mary’s.
David Unsworth, who was promoted to the managerial role from the Under-23s on a temporary basis following Ronald Koeman’s sacking, has now overseen five defeats, one win and one draw.
Widespread reports have suggested that the 44-year-old is unlikely to be given the job on a permanent basis, and Sunday’s defeat will do little to help his case.
Everton headed into the game against Southampton at St Mary’s on the back of a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.
The team were facing a side that had scored just twice in their last four Premier League matches, but they found goalscoring this weekend.
Dusan Tadic and Steven Davis got on the scoresheet, while Charlie Austin netted twice.
Everton are just two points above the relegation zone after 13 matches, and it is safe to say that the fans are struggling to find much optimism, particularly as the club are yet to appoint a new manager, despite it being over a month since Koeman was sacked.

I don't care if we get labelled boring, I don't care if new manager isn't on Twitter, I don't care if we don't actually like the new appointment — I do care that we don't get relegated – and that now is first priority #EFC ##COYB

This is without doubt the worst Everton side I’ve ever seen. No heart, no fight, no quality. Just nothing. #EFC

Is it OK to panic a little yet? #EFC

Another 9 goals conceded in the last two games, we are in DEEP trouble, and we all thought the Mike Walker era was bad, this is a nightmare and unmitigated disaster……#efc
