Sean Dyche has been chosen as the man to keep Everton in the Premier League this season.
Sportsmail's Danny Murphy analyses whether Dyche is the right man for the job, how Everton can avoid relegation and who's to blame for the Anthony Gordon debacle.

IS SEAN DYCHE THE RIGHT FIT AS MANAGER?
He’s perfect for what Everton need, a big character who knows the Premier League — and the Championship too if the worst happens.
Sean is smart enough to understand the potential if he can get things right; Everton has a rich history, big fanbase and a new stadium on the way. Expectations will be greater long term than they were at Burnley but the togetherness he built at Turf Moor is just as important.
Evertonians want honesty which is what Dyche is and the idea he’s tactically incapable is nonsense.

He’s been accused of being a one-trick pony but I just see a manager who did what was best for Burnley when their budget was lower than everyone else.
In any case, simplicity is what Everton players need right now. When you’re short of confidence, complicated instructions and systems is the last thing you need. Dyche will give them a good shape which gives them the best chance to stay up, even if there are no guarantees.
HOW CAN THEY AVOID RELEGATION?
Very short-term, the transfer window closes on Tuesday and he’ll need funds for a striker to give them a physical presence and bring others into play.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin can’t do it all on his own and while I doubt that West Ham would sell to a rival, someone like Michail Antonio would be ideal.
I don’t think Dyche will have any issue getting the players to buy in to his methods. They will trust him because of his past record.
For the remainder of the season, Everton have to be more direct because they lack the creativity and confidence to build from the back and play through the lines. Get the ball forward and into the box.
