Everton & Ronald Koeman
Ronald Koeman is no longer the Everton manager.
The Dutch manager was sacked from his post at Goodison Park on Monday following the 5-2 defeat away at Arsenal.
No one can be surprised that Koeman is gone from Goodison Park.
The defeat to Arsenal saw Everton drop into the bottom three of the Premier League.
That comes after a major summer at the Toffees, where the club spent 170 million pounds on new talent.
Who is next?
As soon as the new of Koeman’s Everton exit broke, fans started to wonder who Everton will replace as their new boss.
The timing of Koeman’s departure makes that appointment slightly tough to call.
Everton are suffering after a wholly unbalanced summer in the transfer maket.
Why did they sign so many creative types – Wayne Rooney, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Davy Klaassen – while failing to replace the giant hole left by Romelu Lukaku’s move to Man United?
And, now that Koeman is gone, Everton still can’t bring in a new striker. Until January, at least.
Burnley & Sean Dyche
Yet, according to the Mail and Telegraph on Monday, Burnley manager Sean Dyche could become the new Everton boss. The Telegraph reported:
The Premier League club will now consider who to hire as Koeman’s replacement with Burnley manager Dyche expected to figure prominently in their thoughts. Dyche has already been strongly linked with the vacant manager’s position at Leicester City.
Whether or not there is a formal approach or Dyche would be interested in either job remains to be seen.
Expect Sean Dyche to be the next Everton manager. David Unsworth to be caretaker. More on @MailSport

Good for Newcastle
The Dyche to Everton story is sure to be a hot topic until either Burnley or the manager himself refutes the rumour publicly.
That could be great news for Newcastle, as they prepare to take on Burnley next Monday in the Premier League.
Newcastle are flying high in the league after a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.
Fans of the Magpies will be hoping the Dyche-Everton story distracts Burnley this week.
Others who could be in the running to be Everton’s new boss are David Unsworth, David Moyes and Sam Allardyce.
