Everton “will barely scrape by” to avoid relegation – Walcott

Theo Walcott, a former Everton winger, believes that the team will be able to survive in the Premier League this season, even if they face further sanctions for breaking financial rules. Despite not winning any of their last 13 league matches, Walcott thinks Everton will have enough to stay up.

Walcott highlighted the significance of Everton remaining in the Premier League, especially with the construction of a new stadium on the horizon. He acknowledged the challenge of relegation battles but remains optimistic about Everton’s chances of survival. With experienced players in the squad who have been in similar situations before, Walcott believes that Everton will be prepared to fight until the end.
