Silva is managing Everton this season in an underwhelming fashion. The team is in relegation spots after eight fixtures have passed.

Everton will host West Ham at Goodison Park as the Marco Silva and the Toffees look to get out of their slump.

The hosts are currently at the 18th spot in the league. There is even the possibility of falling down further if they were to lose today.

On the other end, West Ham is living through its good days, as they compete for the European spots.

It’s widely-known fact that Silva is in the danger of getting sacked very soon if the results don’t improve.

However, according to Telegraph, Silva isn’t afraid of the sack, saying:

“It [the sack] is not something that is ever in my mind because when I’m winning five or six games I’m not thinking if I win I will renew the contract and get three years more.

“It is something that doesn’t stay in my mind. A manager doesn’t have to lose one second to even think in this situation.

“We have to go with, ‘we worked well during the week, we have planned everything well, tomorrow our players they will perform well playing in our stadium and we have to show togetherness to win a football match’.

“The other things I don’t lose one second thinking about that.”

Silva added that there are more things involved in his job than just getting the immediate result:

“If you ask me my feeling from what comes from our owner or our football structure, I never had doubts about that,” said Silva.

“Of course we are talking about results and if you have a good project in football but don’t win matches you don’t forget it [the project].

“It doesn’t happen. Not just with Everton but any club in the world. We don’t just look at that.”

However, if there is one thing to be optimistic about, it’s Everton’s latest performance.

The Toffees played a solid match in a defeat to Guardiola’s Manchester City.
