It’s been a whirlwind week on Merseyside after Everton lost to Norwich and found themselves without a manager.

Rafael Benitez’s exit came as little surprise to many after such a wretched run of form. Now attention turns to who will replace him as the Toffees try to avoid being dragged into a relegation battle.

We’ve taken a look at all you need to know about Everton – from their next league game, to the latest football betting odds.

When is the next Everton Premier League fixture?

Taking the 12:30pm slot, Everton host Aston Villa at Goodison Park this Saturday. The Toffees lost this exact fixture 2-1 in May last season, but they haven’t lost back-to-back home league games against Villa since 1998.

What are the odds that Everton win their next game?

Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa are winless in their last three games, so Everton have a great chance to get back to winning ways. They’re 17/10 to win this weekend, while a draw is currently 11/5.

Richarlison made his return last week, bagging the Toffees a goal. His fitness, along with that of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, will be key to Everton staying up. Richarlison’s 5/1 to open the scoring this weekend, or 9/5 to score anytime.

What is the latest Everton injury and transfer news?

Tom Davies is out until March after undergoing surgery on his injured hamstring. Allan is also ruled out for this weekend. Alex Iwobi is still away on international duty, while latest signing Anwar El Ghazi, on loan from Aston Villa, is ineligible to face his parent club. Jarrad Branthwaite and Fabian Delph could make their returns this weekend.

Who are Everton’s key players?

Everton have been heavily reliant on Dominic Calvert-Lewin for goals, and they struggled in his absence. His return would be a huge boost for Rafael Benitez. Demarai Gray has been a revelation since his summer transfer from Bayer Leverkusen.

What are the Everton odds to be relegated from the Premier League?

Having dropped to 16th, the Toffees have seen their odds shorten to be among the relegation places. They’re 13/2 to go down. But, with a new manager on the way, there’s still time for Everton to grab a spot in the top 10. It’s 7/1 if they can do so.

Who is the manager of Everton?

Having sacked Rafael Benitez, the search is on for the next permanent Everton manager. Top of the list was former Toffee’s boss, and current Belgium manager, Roberto Martinez, but he has drifted to 9/2 in the betting.

He is replaced as favourite by Derby County manager Wayne Rooney (9/4), while Benitez’s assistant Duncan Ferguson is priced at 3/1, alongside Frank Lampard. Other names in the running include Nuno Espirito Santo (10/1), Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (33/1) and Steve Bruce (50/1).

Where is Everton’s stadium?

Everton ply their trade at Goodison Park, which is located just two miles outside of Liverpool City Centre. Their 39,414-seater stadium has been the Toffees’ home since its completion in 1892. However, Everton have commenced building a new, bigger stadium that will take them forward into the future.
