Everton have struggled to find consistency in the Premier League so far this season and have found themselves hovering in mid-table after ten matches.
The Toffees have suffered defeats at the hands of Manchester United, West Ham and Arsenal so far this season, picking up victories over Crystal Palace, Leicester City, Fulham and Southampton while drawing with Wolves, Bournemouth and Huddersfield.
Significant improvements are needed in the coming weeks if Marco Silva’s side are to climb the standings and fans have been making their predictions on social media on how their side will fair in the next five matches.
Silva’s team face favourable fixtures at home against Brighton, Cardiff and Newcastle but face daunting away trips to tackle arch-rivals Liverpool and title-chasing Chelsea, both of which will prove to be difficult matches.
The general consensus of supporters is that a minimum of nine points should be the target but some fans believe differently, predicting better and worse points tallies. We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
Anything less than 9pts will be poor

Win home games. Won’t get anything against Sky 6.

10. Wins at Goodison plus 1 point at either Stamford Bridge or Anfield.

Any less than 9 is horrible. Any above 9 would be quite good. #COYB

12… Chelsea away will be the tough one.

Between 9-11. I think wins away to Chelsea and Liverpool are still beyond our squad at this stage, but positive performances and home wins would be expected, considering the opposition.
