It is certainly a time of positive transition for Everton as four games in we remain one of only five sides yet to be beaten in the Premier league.
This is a fantastic start as we enter the international break and expectations are growing that we can surpass pre-season expectations with Europe football qualification all but expected. You only have to look at the betting that makes us a general 4/1 to finish in the top 6 which would be a fantastic achievement and punters have been quietly supporting this using the 1xbet promo code. So how has our new manager Marco Silva impacted the side?
Silva already seems to be getting the backing from fans and more so than previous managers Ronald Koeman and even Sam Allardyce. There has been an overhaul at the club, which has resulted in far more positive feeling around which has transitioned on to the pitch. With the list of appointments such as Richarlison, Zouma, Bernard, Gomes and Yerry Mina. This is exciting times for the blue half of Merseyside.
Following his move over from Watford he has claimed he is looking to build something important from the dressing room in order for the attitude and performances to transition on to the pitch. His creative attacking style of play is a stark change to the defensive nature of the side from in recent seasons. Sitting on just one victory and three draws is underestimating to the performances on the pitch. Therefore, the next run of difficult fixtures are going to be important starting with a home fixture to the struggling West Ham.
This is then followed with fixtures against the likes of Arsenal, Fulham and Leicester, which will certainly test our metal. If Everton can maintain these levels of performances, then a top four finish is possible and we hopefully could again look to challenge Liverpool in the coming seasons. So how have some of Silva’s main transfers performed?
Richarlison was the big summer signing for Everton due to the big transfer fee. He has already had backing from Brazilian legend Rivaldo who has said he will justify the fee and could be set to be very important for the Brazilian national side in the coming years. This is following on from the 21-year-old being called up for national duty for the current international break. Time will tell as despite his very positive opening performances and three goals he has been sent off in the latter for a head butt.
Theo Walcott is another signing who looks set to play a starring role at the club. He has opened up with two goals but it is his attacking threat that is very positive news for the club. Walcott just a few years ago was being muted as the future of the England national side but had struggled to get a foothold in the Arsenal first team. This move could be a fresh start for Walcott with him again finding his best form and if so he is likely to be a fantastic addition to the now exciting new look squad moving forward.
