Everton Stands Firm Behind Dyche Despite Poor Form

In the face of mounting pressure fueled by Everton’s dismal performance, the club remains resolute in its support of manager Sean Dyche, as reported by i News.

The outlet revealed on April 17th via their website that despite fervent calls from fans for Dyche’s dismissal amid a desperate string of results, notably the humiliating 6-0 defeat against Chelsea on Monday night (April 15th), the club hierarchy maintains that Dyche is “under no threat” at Goodison Park.

“The fact remains that without two points deductions this season, Everton would be eight points better off and safely away from danger,” remarked an unnamed source, underscoring the perceived fairness of the club’s stance.

Dyche’s tenure has been marred by a single Premier League victory since the outset of 2024, a narrow 1-0 triumph over his former club Burnley on April 6th, courtesy of a fortunate goal by Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Arguably, Everton or Dyche himself could assert that their current 16th place standing, merely two points above the relegation zone with a game in hand, doesn’t accurately reflect their performance on the pitch this season, where they’ve amassed eight more points.

The club’s woes have been compounded by two deductions, the first of which reduced their points tally by six (later reduced from ten on appeal), and a second two-point penalty that is currently pending appeal. While some may dismiss these deductions as reasonable excuses, they have evidently impacted the squad’s morale and performance.
