Everton leave Liverpool in the dust amid top 6 Premier League statistic, but Sean Dyche needs Goodison Park miracle

Sean Dyche really is doing his best to turn things around at Everton, and it seems that the club are now finally on the right track.

Having been in the thick of it near the bottom end of the Premier League table early on, the Merseyside outfit now sit 14th.

Their recent rise has involved hard-fought victories against Crystal Palace, West Ham and Bournemouth, and a well-earned draw with Brighton.

The manager and players deserve plenty of credit in this regard, but of course a lot of praise must go towards the Everton faithful.

They really have been through more downs than ups lately, but have managed to stick with their club through thick and thin.

And the latest statistic from the official Premier League Twitter account (16 November) shows just how important they have been.

Interestingly, however, it is away from home as opposed to at Goodison Park where the Toffees are particularly thriving, with the travelling fans certainly playing their part.

Everton currently boast the sixth-best away record this season, with 10 points to their name, one more than fierce rivals Liverpool. It is also one more than Manchester United have, while it is level with both Arsenal and Chelsea.

Home form has, however, let Dyche down, with only struggling Luton Town and Burnley having a worse record at their respective grounds than the Toffees do at Goodison Park.

The boss will be delighted with the club’s form on the road, but things seriously need to change on home soil if the Toffees are to enjoy a strong season from here on in and continue moving away from the dreaded bottom three.
