In recent weeks, the Toffees have successfully lifted themselves out of the relegation zone after appointing a new manager, Sean Dyche. As suggests the GMS, this has created a renewed sense of optimism around the club. Previously, the team was struggling under former boss Frank Lampard, who was relieved of his duties by owner Farhad Moshiri when Everton was in the 19th position in the top-flight standings.
Dyche has made an immediate impact since taking over, not only transforming the team’s fortunes on the pitch but also improving the atmosphere off it.
Although his tenure started with an impressive 1-0 victory over table-toppers Arsenal at Goodison Park, the team suffered a comprehensive defeat at the hands of Liverpool in the Merseyside derby.
Although they suffered a defeat in the Merseyside derby, Everton bounced back with another impressive performance at home to defeat relegation-rivals Leeds United, with an audacious Seamus Coleman strike securing the victory. With this in mind, Dyche is likely to focus on upcoming home fixtures as ideal opportunities to earn valuable points and lift the club further out of the relegation zone.
Journalist Dean Jones, speaking to GMS, suggested that the team’s form at Goodison Park could be crucial in their efforts to stay in the Premier League.
He said: “It’s just something that you used to say, and now you almost take for granted, but that’s what Everton have done. And I think it will be enough for them, to be honest.
“I think that the change that they made was at the perfect moment, teams around them are still massively unbalanced, and they should be okay.”
