Everton, beaten 2-1 at home by Lyon on Thursday night, have made the worst start to a Europa League campaign of any English club in the competition's history.
The Toffees have taken one point from their first three games and look very unlikely to progress to the knockout rounds.
Dutch manager Ronald Koeman is now under immense pressure, having spent £150m on new signings over the summer.
Everton linger all the way down in 16th in the Premier League table and face Arsenal and Chelsea in their next two outings.
It's hard to envisage a scenario where Koeman doesn't lose his job in the very near future.
When asked about support from the owners, Koeman said: "Yeah, that's not changed. Of course we have daily and weekly contact, I know everybody is a little bit worried about the situation but that's normal.
"It's not time to stop and talk about reasons why [we haven't lived up to expectation]. We need to take the situation how it is now and prepare the team for Sunday.
"The position we are in the league is not the position Everton needs to stay and that's what we need to change.
"I still believe in the players and the signings we did in the summer because maybe everybody can have some doubts about several of the signings. The future will show that the signings we made were in fact good signings."
Richard Keys, formerly of Sky Sports and now working for beIN Sports in Qatar, is currently inundated with messages on Twitter from gloating Liverpool fans.
The Reds have not made the strongest start to the 2017/17 season but a pre-season prediction on Twitter has not escaped their attention.
Keys predicted that Everton - who were praised for their transfer business earlier in the summer - would finish above their Merseyside rivals.
His tweet has got nearly 5000 retweets and you would imagine that must of them are from trolling Liverpool fans.
Interestingly, Liverpool only have five points more than Everton - with more than 75% of the points still to play for.
Jurgen Klopp's side face Spurs this weekend on the back of a confidence-boosting 7-0 away win at Slovenian side Maribor.
