There is a feeling of optimism around Everton this season, despite the team recording a mixed bag of results so far in the campaign.
Marco Silva became manager in the summer, replacing Sam Allardyce, and he had a fruitful transfer window.
On the pitch, the Toffees have played four Premier League games but they have secured victory in just one of them – a 2-1 triumph over Southampton.
The other three matches – against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Bournemouth and Huddersfield Town – ended in draws.
As it stands, the Merseyside outfit are seventh in the table, and despite the lack of wins, the fans feel that the team are shaping up nicely.
Now, a statistic has emerged that will cause some supporters to breathe a sigh of relief, and it involves West Ham United.
According to Footy Accumulators, Everton no longer have the biggest record of Premier League losses following the Hammers’ 1-0 defeat to Wolves last weekend.

It has been a miserable start to the season for Manuel Pellegrini and his men as they have lost all four of their league matches.
For Everton fans, though, they are pleased that they no longer hold that miserable crown, but others have reacted more cynically.
