Everton vs Brighton

Everton are currently locked in Premier League action with Brighton.

The Toffees headed into the game on a dismal run of form, which had seen them pick up just one win in their last 11 matches.

However, with Brighton struggling for goals this term and Dominic Calvert-Lewin returning to the starting line-up, Everton’s hopes of a rare win were no doubt high at Goodison Park.

But, as things stand, such a result looks altogether unlikely.

Everton fans make Rafa Benitez demand

A host of the Toffees faithful have taken to social media to demand that Rafael Benitez leave the club, with just some of the reaction showcased below:

Should Everton go on to lose to Brighton, which seems likely at present, can the Everton board really afford to stick with their Spanish headmaster?
