The Clarets parted company with their legendary manager earlier this month, although they’ve climbed out of the relegation zone since his departure, with the Toffees dropping into the bottom three at their expense.
What’s the latest news involving Everton?
It was a disastrous weekend for Frank Lampard’s side, who performed reasonably well in their 2-0 Merseyside derby defeat at Liverpool, but left Anfield with nothing to show for their efforts.
That scoreline came after the Toffees saw Burnley collect a second priceless victory in three days to move two points ahead of them in the Premier League standings.
Everton still have a game in hand on the Clarets and have six fixtures left to save their season but are facing the prospect of being relegated from the Premier League for the first time ever.
This weekend, Lampard’s side face his former side Chelsea in a crunch clash at Goodison Park, while Burnley travel to 19th place Watford, who are on the verge of going down, in what’s a far easier fixture on paper.
If those two games go to form, Everton could be five points from safety and in danger of playing Championship football next season.
What did Jones say about Everton?
He told GIVEMESPORT: “I think that Everton are in big danger of going down. We will see how Burnley manage to turn the corner, but it seems like getting rid of Dyche has lifted something in the squad.
“I don’t know if it’s a fresh pair of eyes making big decisions and talking to them in the dressing room, but something has change there and it has given them a lift at the perfect time, which is really bad news for Everton.”

What are Everton’s remaining fixtures?
Everton have some enticing games remaining, but no one at Goodison Park will be relishing their run-in.
After hosting Chelsea this weekend, the Toffees face trips to Leicester and Watford, and while they’re winnable on paper, they’re yet to collect a single point on their travels under Lampard’s guidance and have lost 11 of their last 12 Premier League away matches.
With their wretched away form in mind, the back to back home games with Brentford and Crystal Palace before their season-ending trip to Arsenal could prove crucial in their battle against survival.
