The Premier League season is only nine games young, yet Everton had no choice but to sack Ronald Koeman.
The 5-2 home defeat to Arsenal on Sunday proved the final straw, with the Toffees left 18th in the table and with their Europa League campaign similarly in tatters.
Bill Kenwright and Farhad Moshiri must now decide on a successor, and there are already a number of names in the frame.
The Scot spent 11 years at Goodison Park before quitting in 2013 to take charge of Manchester United. While he failed to deliver any silverware, he exceeded expectations and took the club into the Champions League.
Dyche’s style of play may not be the most appealing, but he is establishing Burnley as a solid mid-table team and has taken five points from Chelsea, Tottenham, and Liverpool already this season. Koeman, on the other hand, didn’t yield any points from Everton’s big games.
Unsworth is in charge of the under-23s and is the popular choice among many of the fans. Everton lost some of their identity under Koeman, and appointing someone from within the club may be the best way to rediscover it.
The outsider: Carlo Ancelotti
While it seems outlandish that they could secure the Champions League winner, the Italian is out of work following his sacking by Bayern Munich. Ancelotti has also been keeping a close eye on the Premier League in recent weeks having previously managed Chelsea.
