The pundit has stated that all of the teams in and around the relegation zone are ‘in real panic mode’ but insists that Everton will be one of the three to go down.

Speaking on the Gary Neville Podcast, the former Manchester United player believes that Everton alongside Nottingham Forest and Southampton will be the teams to drop out of the Premier League.

Neville said: “I said Everton, Forest and Southampton (will be relegated) last week. I’ll stay with that, but it could easily be Leeds instead of Everton. It could easily be Leeds instead of Forest.

There’s no one at this moment in time that’s giving me great hope for their fans. They’re all in real panic mode.”

Neville prediction is hard for Everton to hear, but might be the push they need

Everton are currently in 19th place in the Premier League table, with Nottingham Forest just one point and one place above in 18th.

Southampton prop up the table five points adrift of Everton in a tightly packed bottom three. Leicester City and Leeds United sit in 16th and 17th places respectively, though it is only goal difference separating the two sides.

Indeed, with just six points separating 16th and 20th in the Premier League table with just four games remaining, it is sure to be an anxious few weeks for Everton fans as they hope their club can secure PL safety once more.

Meanwhile, former Everton manager Sam Allardyce has made a return to Premier League football, after being appointed by Leeds United, with the Yorkshire club now on their third permanent manager of the season following the sackings of Jesse Marsch and Javi Gracia.

Next up for Everton is a trip to Brighton’s Amex Stadium on Monday evening.
