Liverpool legend Steve Nicol has called Merseyside rivals a ‘shambles’ and has tipped them for relegation to the Championship.

The Toffees are currently second bottom in the Premier League , replacing him with former Burnley boss .

They did not sign a single player in the January transfer window and sold star player Anthony Gordon to .

There had been reports that Everton owner Farhad Moshiri had put the club up for sale .

Jamie Carragher recently labelled Everton as ‘the worst-run club in the country’ and fellow former Liverpool defender Nicol has now also ripped into the Toffees.

Nicol, who won four top-flight titles, three FA Cups and the European Cup at Liverpool, spoke to about Everton’s struggles on Wednesday.

Quizzed about Everton’s January transfer window, Nicol said: ‘A horrible mistake letting Anthony Gordon go. No signings. What a disaster.

‘The one piece of future you have, you let go, while you are at your lowest. You bring in absolutely zero. It doesn’t get any worse, does it?

‘It sums up Everton’s season. Everything that can go wrong has gone wrong. It’s a complete shambles.

‘Yes they’ve signed a manager in Sean Dyche, but he can’t kick a ball. He’s dealing with a bunch of players who are not good enough and who don’t look like they have the stomach for the fight.

‘Right now, everything is pointing to relegation and going down [to the Championship].’

Everton are back in action on Saturday as they host Premier League leaders Arsenal at Goodison Park in what will be Dyche’s first game in charge.

The Toffees have only ever been relegated twice and last went down in the 1950-51 season.
