Carlo Ancelotti surprise favourite to replace Ronald Koeman at Everton

Everton's majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri has pledged his "total support" to Ronald Koeman.

He said, "At the moment, it is totally different than it was last season".

Everton were booed off after a 1-0 home defeat to Burnley on Sunday, which Moshiri described as the only "unexpected" loss of the campaign.

The Daily Mirror reports that Koeman himself admits his future is uncertain.

"Obviously there are loads of great players here but you get confidence from winning games and especially lately we have not been winning many".

However, he played down fans expectations after their stunning start: "We have to be honest, we're certainly very pleased with the start and that's far as it goes, but it's a long season ahead".

With the global break commencing, Everton have time to regroup but whether their manager still be at the club when they travel to Brighton and Hove Albion on October 15 remains to be seen.

Everton have just seven points from as many games in the 2017/18 season and the pressure is increasing on Ronald Koeman and his expensively assembled squad.

Everton dejected after a 2-2 draw with Apollon Limassol in the Europa League.

Gameiro has slipped down the pecking order at Atletico Madrid and his struggle for consistent game time will only get harder with the arrival of Diego Costa in January.

"They have lost four of their seven Premier League games and it is the manner of the defeats which is most concerning".

Burnley, as their stand-in captain Ben Mee puts it, are playing well, feeling confident and getting results - in other words, everything Everton are not doing.

Everton striker Wayne Rooney thought he should have had a penalty late on when his flick-on from Gylfi Sigurdsson's cross bounced on to Matthew Lowton's arm and Koeman said: "You know, sometimes you get the help of a referee".

What time is Everton vs Burnley kick-off? "To have eyes in the back of his head and backheel to me was awesome".

Everton felt aggrieved that referee Jonathan Moss didn't give award them a penalty in the second-half!

Koeman must only hope his owner understands the ebb and flow of the modern game as much as he says he does.
