Marco Silva has been fired as manager of Everton, making him the fourth Premier League manager to lose his job in the last 16 days.

According to the BBC, the 42-year-old has experienced a torrid time at the Blues and the defeat to rivals Liverpool was the final straw following his one-and-half-year reign as the club's mentor.

Everton said Duncan Ferguson will take temporary charge of the team for the game against Chelsea on Saturday.

It's reported Portuguese Vitor Pereira is in contention to take over on Merseyside.

Asked about his future after the defeat by Liverpool, Silva said: "I am not the right person to talk to you about the situation".

Silva turned into appointed sooner than the 2018/2019 season following his sacking from Watford, but a unhappy flee of manufacture this season has considered Everton straggle to 18th in the Premier League table. I can not answer to you.

Moyes, who had a successful 11-year stint in charge at Goodison Park from 2002-13, would likely be joined by former Everton midfielder Tim Cahill as part of his coaching staff.

Former Everton manager David Moyes has been considered as a potential interim successor, but the suggestion has sparked a largely negative reaction from supporters and it remains to be seen whether majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri and his boardroom colleagues ignore that and invite the 56-year-old Scot to return.

Silva has now managed three Premier League clubs after a spell with Hull City, which ended in relegation and his departure, and at Watford, where he was sacked after interest from Everton but also a poor run of results.

Kick-off is at 14:30 (SA time).
