Everton fans pinning all their hopes on Walcott ahead of Brighton clash

Everton fans are in need of some positivity this weekend when the team face Brighton at Goodison Park.

The Toffees have won just two of their last 11 Premier League fixtures, which has left the club 11th in the table.

Despite the club sitting just below the top half of the standings, they are only seven points above the relegation zone.

Manager Sam Allardyce has come under intense pressure, particularly from the fans, who did not react well to claims that he wants to stay in charge.

Last weekend, the team were beaten 2-1 by Burnley at Turf Moor, and the supporters are desperate not to see the club suffer the same fat when Brighton visit Goodison on Saturday.

Chris Hughton’s men will be in high spirits given that they overcame Arsenal in their most recent top-flight outing.

Theo Walcott, for many Everton fans, has been the silver lining in the team following his January arrival from Arsenal.

Judging by the reaction to the attacker’s pre-match tweet, pressure is on his shoulders to get the win for the Toffees.
