Former Newcastle United and West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce is the favourite for the Everton managerial role with odds of 1/10.

According to The Guardian, Everton are set to appoint the 63-year-old as their new manager.

Meanwhile, former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has criticised Everton interim manager David Unsworth for the Toffees’ defeat to Southampton in the Premier League last weekend.

“No matter what team David Unsworth picks at Everton they fail in every area,” Cascarino wrote in The Times. “There is a lack of pace and cohesion in defence, the midfield doesn’t work hard as a unit and the forwards barely manage to pass to each other.

“He’s making drastic changes each game because he’s desperate for something to happen. I feel for him but it shows tactical naivety and how much the club needs an experienced manager.”

Everton will face West Ham United at Goodison Park in the Premier League this evening.

Ahead of the match, West Ham boss and former Everton manager David Moyes has given his take on the situation at the Toffees.

“No, not in this game because I need to win with West Ham, it is really important we try and pick up three points,” Moyes told Football.London when asked if there is any room for sentiment on his part.

“We got our first point on Friday, we need to try and get our first clean sheet, our first three points, so either of them would be a plus as well so I am hoping for that.”
