Sam Allardyce admits he could be sacked by Everton

The Toffees have lost their last two and won just twice in 12 games with Allardyce accepting his job is on the line despite "positive” talks with the club’s major investor Farhad Moshiri.

And Allardyce knows his horror run cannot continue if he is stand any chance of clinging on.

"Whatever Farhad says is very positive but I am under no illusions about my position,” he said ahead of tomorrow’s visit of Brighton.

"I have always said that managers stay in a job when they win football matches.

"I can’t continue to lose football matches. It is as simple as that really.

"There is no point beating about the bush and saying you can have as much backing as you want.

"There is great backing from the owners but I have to win matches to reassure them that I am the right man for the job.

"While that support is there, it is my responsibility to alleviate the pressure on everybody – him included – by winning football matches.”

Allardyce faces a battle to win over Everton’s fans with many never fully behind his appointment as Ronald Koeman’s successor in November on an 18-month deal.

They were enraged by their manager comparing the club’s ambitions to that of his former teams Newcastle and West Ham last week.

And there was further criticism when Allardyce appeared to smirk in a TV interview when asked about fan frustrations after he substituted Gylfi Sigurdsson in last weekend’s 2-1 defeat by Burnley.

"I said I am more disappointed than them when I was asked the question,” he said.

"I don’t know what my facial expressions look like when I am answering questions, to be honest with you.

"My wife often tells me to stop (fidgeting). All I know is that I was thinking about the question and thinking how to answer it.

"The way I answered it reflected that I was extremely disappointed to see the way we lost the game and the way we performed in the second half. The big responsibility lies on you.

Allardyce still believes he can win the fans over but thinks tomorrow’s clash with Chris Hughton’s in-form side is the biggest of his short spell at Goodison Park.

He added: “It is one of those big moments again this season of having to turn the season around.

"The position we have allowed ourselves to get in has put us under enormous pressure to do that. It is a huge game, one of the biggest I’ve had in my short time here.”
