Everton and Watford both lost on Saturday in the Premier League
Marco Silva must be feeling the pressure at Everton after the Toffees lost 2-0 to Sheffield United.
The away side have been impressive since their return to the Premier League, but Everton should have had enough in the tank to see off United.
The loss was Everton’s third from six Premier League games this season and the Toffees now lie in 14th place before Sunday’s games.
Silva wasn’t the only manager feeling the heat after Saturday with Watford getting battered 8-0 by Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola’s side could have scored more but Quique Sanchez Flores must be in disbelief as to how the Hornets capitulated against the Premier League champions.
This is Flores’ second stint at the Hornets after Javi Gracia was sacked a few games into the campaign, and this was a wakeup call as Watford could be in serious trouble.
Watford have sacked managers or replaced them every 12-15 months or so, and Silva was at the helm of the club before his move to Everton.
Gary Lineker hit three birds with one tweet as he joked that Silva and Flores could be out of jobs soon.
A tough job at hand for both managers
While Flores should get more time after returning to Watford recently, the same cannot be said for Silva.
The former Hull City manager should have seen Everton kick on after spending big in the transfer window, but the Toffees have struggled for consistency and results.
This was a problem in the previous campaign too, but Silva arrested the slide in results during the second half.
