David Unsworth is likely to still be in charge of Everton by the time Watford visit Goodison Park on Sunday, Sky Sports reports.

The 44-year-old Under-23 manager has lost both of his games in the Toffees hotseat so far, but while owner Ferhad Moshiri is hot on the pursuit of Burnley boss Sean Dyche, no appointment is expected before the weekend.

Sam Allardyce is also strongly linked with the vacant role, and has confirmed he would be interested with taking charge.

Unsworth is a popular figure on Merseyside, winning the Premier League 2 title with the Toffees youngsters last season and helping to produce the likes of Tom Davies, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Jonjoe Kenny.

But he has not enjoyed such success in his short reign at the helm of the senior side so far, losing 2-1 to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup last week and 2-0 at Leicester on Sunday.
