Everton have this morning confirmed news that David Unsworth will take temporary charge of the Everton first team.

The Everton hierarchy are considering several candidates to replace Ronald Koeman. The Burnley manager, Sean Dyche, Watford’s Marco Silva, the former Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel and Carlo Ancelotti have been linked with the vacancy.

Unsworth is another candidate to replace Koeman on a permanent basis. The former Everton defender, who has flourished as manager of the club’s under‑23s, took charge of one Premier League game after Roberto Martínez’s sacking in 2016 and will reprise his caretaker role for Wednesday’s Carabao Cup tie at Chelsea. The under-23s coach John Ebbrell will also be in the Everton dugout at Stamford Bridge.

Although Unsworth, 44, lacks managerial experience in the Premier League, he is highly regarded within Goodison and is likely to be given the next four matches until the international break – Chelsea, Leicester City, Lyon away and Watford – to impress.

Sounds like a mid-90s sitcom.

Not what I saw first 60 minutes. Lots of bad mistakes throughout and many players showing total disinterest.

Well we were clearly watching a different game, mispasses yes, effort yes, lack of confidence yes, total disinterest – no.

Bizarre comment, players really put a shift in. He's made some mistakes but in every game the effort has been there from the players.

Schneids and Vlasic should be given the benefit of the doubt, but Mirallas is the sort of bloke who makes you understand why his country has been subjected to foreign rule for almost all its existence.

…undeniable good player that he is, I was surprised he was offered contract extension given his attitude and time he spends on the sidelines.
