Everton manager Marco Silva sets embarrassing PL record during 6-2 Tottenham defeat

Marco Silva could be in big trouble at Everton following Sunday afternoon's embarrassing 6-2 defeat at home to Tottenham.

Everton actually took the lead through Theo Walcott in the 21st minute, but Son Heung-min, Dele Alli and Harry Kane soon made it 3-1 Spurs heading into half-time.

Christian Eriksen then added a fourth before Gylfi Sigurdsson clawed one back to give Everton hope of an unlikely comeback.

But before long Son and Alli grabbed their second goals of the game to seal an emphatic victory for Tottenham and move two points behind Manchester City in the Premier League.

Everton, meanwhile, are now 11th and winless in their last five.

Silva needs to come up with a solution to his side's poor recent form, because the Toffees are conceding far too many goals at the moment.

Jordan Pickford made yet another costly mistake that led to a goal - his third of the season - while Kurt Zouma, Michael Keane and Seamus Coleman were all dreadful at the back.

Perhaps it's Silva who's the problem, though, after the Portuguese manager made history for all the wrong reasons on Sunday.

By losing 6-2, Silva became the first manager in the Premier League to concede six goals at home for three different clubs: Hull City, Watford and Everton.

Silva lost 7-1 to Tottenham at Hull City in May 2017, 6-0 to Manchester City at Watford in September 2017, and now 6-2 to Tottenham (again) in December 2018. Yikes.

Everton next face Burnley away on Wednesday before another trip to Brighton on Saturday, where they must look to avoid defeat to stay within touching distance of the top 10.
