Its been a disastrous start to the 2017/18 season for Everton, who currently sit 18th in the Premier League with just eight points from ten games.
And sacking manager Ronald Koeman doesn't appear to have been the tonic they were hoping for, as stand-in boss David Unsworth oversaw a 2-0 defeat away to Leicester City last weekend.
Are Everton too good to go down? They certainly should be after spending around £140million on improving their squad over the summer. But the loss of last season's top scorer Romelu Lukaku, sold to Manchester United to £75million, has shook them, while their expensive recruitment drive has left the squad imbalanced.
They must pick up a positive result when they host Watford at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon. Three point against the Hornets could kickstart their campaign; defeat doesn't bear thinking about.
