David Unsworth unsure of permanent Everton role

Everton caretaker David Unsworth is unsure whether he would take permanent charge of the Toffees after he guided them to their first victory in six games. The Merseyside outfit came into the match on a five-match winless streak, which included three defeats and two draws.

Goals from Richarlison and Christian Kabasele gave visitors Watford a 2-0 lead in the second half, but the Toffees struck back immediately with Oumar Niasse and Dominic Calvert-Lewin finding the scoresheet. Leighton Baines made it 3-2 in Everton's favour with a coolly slotted penalty before Hornets skipper Tom Cleverley missed a spot kick of his own to gift the Toffees a much-needed win.

As a result, Unsworth bagged his first win of the current campaign, and he admits that he is the proudest man in the world to get an opportunity to manage the club. Regardless of this, he is unsure whether he will get the permanent role with the likes of David Moyes and Sam Allardyce linked with the job.

"I know nothing about it. Whatever will be will be. I have been the proudest man in the world to take charge for the last two weeks and no-one can take that away from me. I'm sure I'll speak to the chairman and owner and I'll keep giving my best for this wonderful club." he is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

The victory takes Everton 15th on the table, two adrift of West Ham, who are now in the dreaded drop zone. Slaven Bilic is apparently on the cusp of getting the sack, and the Hammers' position prior to the international break is unlikely to do any favours for him when he meets up with the club's hierarchy to discuss his future on Monday.

The Toffees have endured one of their worst Premier League campaigns despite their high spending in the summer, and they will hope for a strong run during the festive period- under the tutelage of Unsworth or a new coach.
