Everton fell to their third successive Premier League defeat on Saturday as they lost 1-0 to Watford at Vicarage Road. A second half strike from Andre Gray was enough to secure the three points for the Hornets.
In a hostile atmosphere, as the home crowd took aim at their club’s former manager and the Toffees’ current boss Marco Silva, the Merseyside outfit wilted. Everton deserved to lose and look like a side pretty bereft of confidence right now.
The fact that Kurt Zouma was shown a red card after the final whistle only served to compound Silva’s misery.
The pressure has now been heaped onto the Portuguese coach and he’s probably running out of time to turn around his side’s fortunes. Everton fans are certainly beginning to lose patience with him.

After the final whistle on Saturday, plenty of the Everton faithful took to Twitter to plead for Silva’s reign at Goodison Park to be brought to a swift end.
To be fair, all these Watford fans with their tails ups, don’t blame them one bit they told us what we should expect and to be honest they where spot on. Can’t blame them for hating Marco as we all do too! #SilvaOut

The ‘let’s give Marco more time’ crew is dwindling rapidly. It’s like standing on the the beach watching a drowning man in the sea and saying “don’t worry, he’ll learn to swim in a minute” #SilvaOut

Might be a split crowd but I think we need Moyes back to stable things get some passion in the side and sought this mess of a team out.#silvaout
