Gabby Agbonlahor shares where Everton boss Sean Dyche now ranks among PL elite managers

Former Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor lauded Sean Dyche’s achievements with Everton, ranking him sixth amongst Premier League managers this season on talkSPORT.

“Getting them [Everton] out of the danger zone, he’s done an outstanding job,” Agbonlahor said live on air. “With the injuries they’ve had, Calvert-Lewin out for most of the season, I’ll give Sean Dyche number six.”

Everton endured a tumultuous season, facing points deductions and a potential takeover. “Considering the drama at Goodison Park this season, Dyche has done an incredible job to keep the Toffees afloat in the Premier League,” Agbonlahor remarked.

Despite the eight-point deduction, Everton currently sit comfortably above the relegation zone after a four-game unbeaten run. Agbonlahor believes the players responded well to adversity, particularly after the initial ten-point deduction in November. “This run saw them beat Nottingham Forest, Newcastle United, Chelsea and Burnley,” he highlighted.

Everton’s fight for survival continues as they navigate a potential change in ownership.
