After losing 1-0 at Watford on Saturday afternoon, Everton manager Sam Allardyce is under huge pressure – and speculation suggests that he could be replaced at the end of the season.

The Toffees only appointed Allardyce as Ronald Koeman's replacement back in November, but he already finds himself under pressure after just two wins in 2018.

With five away defeats in a row in all competitions, Allardyce's initial boost to the Everton squad has certainly vanished, and he could pay with his job at the end of the season.

The Daily Star report that majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri is already considering replacements for Allardyce, with Shakhtar Donetsk manager Paulo Fonseca believed to be a top target having also been wanted in November.

Everton would have to move quickly to land the impressive Portuguese boss though, as The Telegraph claim that he is also a target for Arsenal as they consider life after Arsene Wenger.

Another manager strongly linked with Everton is Marco Silva, given that the Toffees made huge bids to land him after Koeman's exit but couldn't tempt Watford into letting him go, only for the Hornets to sack Silva in January, making him free to move on.

With fans unhappy, Everton supporters have taken to Twitter to claim that they think Fonseca is little more than a pipedream, feeling that there is little chance of the Toffees landing him and that his name is only being floated to get fans excited.

Many added that they think Silva will ultimately be Allardyce's replacement, given how strongly Moshiri pursued him just months ago and the fact that he is unattached heading towards the summer.
