The Blues sit fifth in the Premier League table, having accrued 14 points from seven matches.

Summer signings Andros Townsend and Demarai Gray are thriving, along with the likes of Abdoulaye Doucoure and Allan.

The question is: can Everton maintain their fine form?

Supporters would snap your arm off to finish in their current berth.

And according to website FiveThirtyEight, that's where the Blues will end up come May.

Based on the stats so far this term, Everton have been tipped to seal their highest finish since 2014.

Everton are projected to pick up 56 points. That would see them level with Tottenham but Benitez's men are forecast to have a better goal difference.

It would guarantee Europa League football - although a Champions League spot is said to be out of the question.

Everton are protected to finish and has been handed just a 13% chance of clinching a top-four spot.

If any supporters are dreaming of the title, they’re given less than a one per cent chance of doing so.

The Blues have had some close shaves with relegation in 1994 and 1998 but never lost their Premier League status.

And there's little chance of the drop this term, either.

Unsurprisingly, winless Norwich, Watford and Burnley have all been predicted to go down.
