What exactly is the tipping point at Everton? How bad do things have to get before a drastic change is made? Leicester have already sacked their manager. The Foxes only have two fewer points than the Toffees, and they have no where near the type of expectations. Time is running out for Ronald Koeman. A loss to Lyon later this week could kill Europa League dreams, and it’s not tough to see a hungry Arsenal bounce back over the weekend. I’d be nervous if I were him.
