Interim Manager David Unsworth to take charge of the Toffees game against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup

Former defender and current Everton U-23 manager David Unsworth will take charge of the Toffees on interim basis according to the Toffees social media platform twitter yesterday, following the sack of Dutchman Ronald Koeman few days ago after a run of poor results. However, the Caretaker manager faces a difficult test away at the Bridge against Premier League Champions Chelsea tonight in the Carabao Cup. Ronald Koeman who led the Toffees to a respectable seventh place finish in the Premier League last season was sacked on Monday after a 5-2 loss against the Gunners at the Goodison Park dragged them into the relegation the relegation waters despite spending heavily in the summer transfer window.

For all the summer recruits brought in by the Dutchman, his failure to replace Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku who departed for Manchester United in the summer in a £75 million deal seems to have backfired. The Belgian international was the Toffees highest goalscorer last season having scored a total of 25 goals in all competitions. The Dutchman was destined to be sacked after an abysmal start to the new campaign both home and abroad, winning just two games out of nine Premier League games so far this season and sit bottom in their group in the Europa League.

David Gerald Unsworth was part of the Everton team that won the 1995 FA Cup and is commonly referred to as ‘Rhino’ by his teammates. Burnley manager Sean Dyche has reportedly been tipped as the favorite to replaced Ronald Koeman at Goodison Park, but the 44-year-old who knows the club so well will be hoping he can get the job on a permanent basis if he can convince the management he is the right man for the job.
