Liverpool fans are questioning and dreading the thought of Rafa Benitez becoming Everton's next manager as Marco Silva's time at the club seems to be coming to an end. 

As posted by the Liverpool Echo, Benitez could potentially be making a return to the Premier League, a return to Merseyside, but heading to Goodison Park instead of Anfield. 

 

Silva is still in charge of Everton, but it seems as though it's just a matter of time before the club pulls the trigger and parts ways with the under-performing coach, as reported by BBC Sport. 

If the expected parting ways with Silva does happen then the bookmakers will be hot on their heels to see who punters will be backing to take the Toffees managerial post. 

If the rumours do become true and Benitez does make become Everton's next manager then it'll cause some big talking points on Merseyside.

Some Liverpool fan on Twitter are hoping that Benitez doesn't take the Everton job, as they think they are almost certain he won't take that step to the other side of the divide. 

If Benitez does make the switch to Everton then questions will be asked about how Liverpool fans will really take to the Spanish coach, who won the Champions League trophy with the Reds in memorable fashion in 2005.

Here is a selection of Liverpool fans on Twitter reacting to those Benitez and Everton rumours:
