Emile Heskey sends Marco Silva axe warning with Liverpool vs Everton forecast

Emile Heskey reckons Marco Silva is a goner at Everton – but he's warned Liverpool that the Portuguese can still mastermind a Merseyside derby win.

The Toffees are in dismal form and sit just one spot above the relegation zone.

Silva’s future now hangs in the balance and a battering tonight could seal his fate.

Liverpool’s fortunes couldn’t be more different.

They are sitting pretty at the top of the the Premier League and are on course for a first league title since 1990.

Heskey thinks Silva’s days are numbered at Goodison Park.

But the former Reds striker has warned that the beleaguered boss can still dent Jurgen Klopp’s title charge.

"He does seem on his way out, but don't expect them to lose six or seven nil,” Heskey told Starsport.

"Everton, in all fairness, put in a really good performance against Leicester but a last minute goal saw them lose 2-1 there.

"You want a strategy and you want your players to understand what they need to do.

"They had a very good plan on Sunday and it nearly came off.

"Come 75 or 80 minutes they were running out of gas a little bit, but they played well.

"They were the better team in the first half, created more chances and kept Leicester at bay.”

Liverpool have secured a host of last-gasp victories in recent weeks.

Heskey has warned Klopp that Silva will look to stifle and frustrate his high-flying side.

"Form goes out the window on derby day and it is whoever has got the most heart and the hunger to get over the line,” added Heskey who was speaking on behalf of Gentingbet.

"When you look at Liverpool recently they haven't been playing great, but they've been grinding out results.

"Everton took a defensive approach against Leicester and it kind of worked to a point.

"They will try something similar against Liverpool and look at what teams have caused Klopp problems this season.

"It won't be easy for them, but they still have some good young players.

"They will create chances – but they've got to have the will to finish it off as well."
