Everton lost to Sheffield United on Saturday, while Watford were hammered by Manchester City.
An own goal from Yerry Mina put the Blades in the lead in the 40th minute, and Lys Mousset doubled the advantage in the 79th minute.
Former Everton striker Lineker was following the match, and he has given his take on the defeat for the Toffees.
The former Tottenham Hotspur striker has (jokingly?) suggested that Everton boss Marco Silva could be managing Watford by Monday.
Lineker was alluding to Watford’s humiliating 8-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City away from home in the Premier League on Saturday.
It was Quique Sanchez Flores’s only second game in charge of Watford since being reappointed as the Hornets’ manager.
Sanchez Flores was appointed in the role following the departure of Javi Gracia after a run of poor results.
