Many Everton supporters have been reacting on Reddit to a comparison table, which noted the differences between what we saw in our first Premier League season under Marco Silva to what we endured under Ronald Koeman and Sam Allardyce.
While we may have finished in the same league position under our Portuguese head coach as to the former England manager, Silva was able to put five more points on the board after 38 games, while also taking eight more against the top six.
We also won two more league games across the term under Silva, while drawing and losing one fewer in each account.
Goal difference also saw a sizable difference, despite our struggles in the winter from set pieces, as Silva’s end-of-term record stood 22 goals to the better, having scored ten more and conceded 12 fewer.
We also saw out the campaign with a much better goal difference against the top six, having demolished Manchester United at Goodison Park, as well as beating Chelsea and Arsenal in the immediate weeks before.
Silva’s desired style of play also saw the Toffees record more chances created and shots taken per game, while facing fewer shots. We even increased our successful passes per game by 47.3, and successful forward passes per game by 30.2.
