Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours
Blues will want to keep an eye on Watford FC’s match against Southampton today, as the Hornets are currently tied on points (49) with Everton with one less match played. The Blues could certainly use some help from other teams, as well as keep up a good run of form, to capture the elusive seventh place spot to (hopefully) guarantee Europa League football next season. However, after a somewhat rocky first season for Marco Silva, would Europa League football do the club more harm than good?
