Everton have improved significantly under Marco Silva this season, who has become an instant hit on Merseyside with his attacking style of football and success in the transfer market.
The Toffees boast a run of just one defeat in the past seven Premier League matches, picking up five victories in those fixtures, and will be in good spirits heading into this weekend’s derby against arch-rivals Liverpool.
First identified as a managerial target midway through last season before Sam Allardyce took charge until the end of the campaign, Silva’s work with the squad has been excellent and he has seen his summer signings pay off as the likes of Lucas Digne, Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes have quickly become important members of the side.
Now 13 games into the season, Everton fans were asked to give their assessment of Silva’s reign so far by an intrigued Benfica supporter on Reddit and many flocked to heap praise upon the Portuguese boss.
We have gathered some of their comments below.
