Everton owner Farhad Moshiri is expected to address the Everton players after training on Wednesday with Marco Silva facing the sack. 

A resounding 5-2 defeat by Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday night saw Everton drop into the relegation zone of the Premier League and it has prompted Moshiri to act.

David Moyes is ready to make an incredible return to Everton and replace Silva as manager.

Moshiri arrived in Liverpool on Thursday morning, and according to Sky Sports News the players have been asked to stay behind after their training session.

Silva has faced relentless questions about his future during the past month but, for the fifth consecutive press conference, he responded with the same answer when asked whether he could continue.

‘I am not the right person to talk to you about the situation,’ said Silva. ‘I cannot answer to you. Since I joined the club and until the last day I am here I will always be 100 percent professional, giving my best every single day.

‘I understand why the questions are coming. If we are winning all the games, you are not asking them. It is not for me to take those situations. I don’t like to talk after every single match about my future.

‘They deserved the three points, no doubt and we were not good enough. The way we started the game, the way we conceded the goal, the five goals and the more chances they had.

‘Part of the moments, part of the third goal, after the offensive corner for us. Always they arrive quicker than us. The way we concede the goal was not good enough. We should do better, be more brave and win some challenges.’

It will be a baptism of fire for Moyes if he does complete a return to Everton.

They host Chelsea in Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off before heading to his former club Manchester United the following weekend.

They then host second-place Leicester in the Carabao Cup quarter-final before Arsenal head to Goodison three days later.

Everton dropped to 18th in the Premier League after Wednesday’s loss to their Merseyside rivals. They have 14 points from 15 games and are one point behind Southampton, who occupy 17th.

Moyes is ready to start work immediately and could bring popular former player Tim Cahill back as part of his coaching staff, had a successful 11-year stint in charge at Goodison Park from March 2002 to May 2013.
