Everton fans will fear the worst as Sky Sports shares Premier League fixture difficulty levels
Everton have endured another poor start to a Premier League campaign, with the club currently sitting 16th in the table.
It simply hasn’t gone to plan for manager Sean Dyche this season, with a real turnaround in fortunes needed as soon as possible.
The Merseyside outfit have been heavily involved in relegation battles in the last two campaigns, with the boss desperately trying to avoid a hat-trick.
But the latest data from Sky Sports suggests that a third successive relegation battle may be likely, with Everton having had the easiest run of fixtures until now.
Despite the supposed easy run, the Toffees have won just two of their eight matches so far, drawing one and losing the other five.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, Sky Sports have added that Everton are now entering their toughest period of the season.

The club return to action following the international break with one of their most difficult and indeed most important games of the season for many reasons, with fierce rivals Liverpool awaiting them at Anfield on Saturday (21 October).
They head into that game as underdogs, but an unlikely win may just be the catalyst needed to properly kick-start their Premier League campaign.
Following the meeting with Jurgen Klopp’s men are clashes with West Ham and Brighton, who sit seventh and sixth in the table respectively.
