Ronald Koeman coming unstuck at the Toffeesby Jack Kitson / 17 September 2017, 18:25Tweet
Ronald Koeman was installed as the new 2/1 favourite for the sack before Everton’s match against Man Utd, and now after a 4-0 drubbing at Old Trafford it’s not looking good for the under-fire Dutchman, who could be in danger of becoming the second top-flight managerial casualty of the season.
Koeman’s fellow countryman Frank de Boer was sent packing last week after only five games spanning 77 days at Crystal Palace. The Everton boss will now be fearing the worst following a rotten run of form during which his miss-performing troops have lost four consecutive league and cup matches, firing blanks in each.
The Toffees are now without a win in six games in all competitions, while the thrashing at the hands of United means the Merseyside club have dropped into the relegation zone (18th).
In the summer Koeman spent heavily on defensive recruits but his side have now failed to keep a clean sheet in six games, leaking in a whopping 10 goals in their last three fixtures alone.
The club have also struggled at the other end of the pitch, failing to find the back of the net in nearly six hours of football - the goal they conceded from their record Premier League goalscorer, Romelu Lukaku, must have been particularly hard to swallow.
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho celebrates a first win over Koeman in a whopping six attempts, as United draw level with fierce rivals Man City at the top of the table, with both teams also scoring and conceding the same amount of goals.
Yey Or Nay?
