Pressure continues to mount as Marco Silva suffered yet another defeat in the Premier League.

Everton lost 2-1 away to Leicester City and are now in 17th place with only 14 points.

Before the international break, the Portuguese were already stating that each Marco Silva game was crucial, in order to maintain his jobs. Following another two consecutive defeats in the league, the Portuguese media have already started posting some potential candidates for the job.

The oldest Portuguese sports newspaper, A Bola published after yesterday’s defeat that it was a “crucial result”, and then added that the toffees manager had said: “We deserved more from this match. It was a difficult moment for the players, but no one can doubt their commitment and ambition.”

In another article, A Bola mentions that Portuguese manager, Jorge Jesus, current manager of Flamengo could be an option for Everton. Jesus helped Flamengo win the Copa dos Libertadores, as well as the Brazilian Football Championship.

That same article referred that Flamengo will play the Clubs World Cup in December could delay a possible contract with Everton.

Another popular option is David Moyes, but according to A Bola the fans are not very keen about a possible return of Moyes to manage the club.

Another Portuguese newspaper, Diario de Noticias, headlines that Silva’s life is getting more complicated following the defeat to Leicester City.

Both Diario de Noticias and A Bola consider the Merseyside derby as crucial and possibly the last game for Silva ahead of Everton.
