After narrowly avoiding relegation with a last day win against Bournemouth, Everton will be hoping to not repeat the same instance as the last two seasons, fighting against relegation. With the fans against the board and a new stadium being built, this season will be crucial for the Toffees.

Who's in charge?


Everton will be going into the 2023/24 season with Sean Dyche. The English manager joined Everton mid-season last season, as the Toffees were struggling significantly under previous manager Frank Lampard.


Dyche came into Everton and started with a 1-0 victory against Arsenal. However, reality would kick in for the rest of the season, barely escaping from relegation. However, now that Everton have stayed in the league, Dyche will be looking to make major improvements going into the new campaign.


Everton will be looking to play a high press in a 451, as the fans love to see maximum effort from their players. Dyche has been typically described as a 'park the bus' manager. However, he is far from that and has many tactical ideas for what could suit this Everton side.

Everton's standout player


Everton had a major issues last season, which was scoring goals. The Toffees had striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin out for the majority of the season. Therefore, going into this season, I believe that Calvert-Lewin will be Everton's standout player.


The English forward has had specialist rehab in Germany to ensure that he can stay fit. If Calvert-Lewin can stay fit, he will help Everton massively, which was shown in the Toffees' 5-1 victory over Brighton last season. Although he didn't score, you could see how influential his hold up play was for Everton's attack.


With the new signing of Danjuma and other attacking signings on the way, Calvert-Lewin could come into fruition this season and hit the heights he did when Carlo Ancelotti was Everton manager.


Will it be a successful or unsuccessful season for Everton?


Everton will desperately be hoping for not a repeat of last season, fighting for relegation. The Toffees still have a tight budget due to financial fair play regulations. However, the Blues are still making improvements to the squad. Also with Sean Dyche at the helm, Everton fans have a reason to be quietly optimistic this season.


I think that Everton will finish mid table this season comfortably, finishing in 12th to make a step forward in the rebuild. I think that Everton fans would be satisfied with that result.
