I also have a little bit of sympathy for Marco Silva. He’ll be hurting. No-one was talking to him and it’s a really lonely place.

‘There’s no clarity’

There’s enough ability in that Everton squad to do better than they are doing. I’ve been at clubs where you ask who’s going to lead it? What’s uncertain there, you hear some players who have to had leave the football club, they are told by Marco Silva to talk to the director of football, then the owner. There’s no real clarity, they are all blaming each other.

‘Some of Liverpool’s football is breathtaking’

Some of the football at the moment is breathtaking, they are playing with such confidence. It’s just a great place to come and watch football.

‘Everton have no choice but to sack Silva’

It wasn’t a great performance from Everton. Defensively it could have been 7-8, they were outfought, out-battled. They need to find an alternative very, very quickly.

They’ve got to make a change. With the budget and what they’ve spent, I don’t think they’ve been left with much choice. A club the size of Everton can’t be in the bottom three. They can’t risk relegation.

‘We had to be patient’

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers, speaking to Match of the Day:“A tough game for us. Hayden Mullins had Watford very well organised. We had to be patient this evening and worked very hard for that but I thought we deserved it.

“The fans have been brilliant since I first came into here. They have taken on board the style we are trying to play. When you face teams that sit in deep you have to have that patience.

“Jamie Vardy is absolutely fantastic. I thought he should have a penalty in the first half. I don’t know why that was overturned. In the current rules that is normally given but it wasn’t. We gathered our composure and continued to work away to get the goal.

“Ben Foster made some great saves tonight. We were unfortunate not to score more. We had to defend well, even if they did not have a shot on target until late on. We managed the game very well.

“A real team effort tonight and to get seven wins on the spin in the Premier League is a great achievement. The team is developing and are proving they have a winning mentality and mindset.

“We will do our best [to stay in the top two], we fight and work and see where it takes us.”
