Everton Football Club owner Farhad Moshiri has backed under-fire boss Rafael Benitez and insisted he won't be sacked as he needs more time to turn results around, after a 4-1 drubbing by rivals Liverpool extended Everton's win-less run to eight Premier League matches. 

Fahad Moshiri who brought Benetiz at the club this summer still remains confident that things will turn around once the likes of striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin and centre-back Yerry Mina get fit. 

Moshiri on Thursday told talkSPORT: "Football is about crisis one day and glory the following day. Rafa is a good manager and underperformance is largely due to the injuries. Over the next two weeks, we will get to a full squad and, in the meantime, results will improve."

"Rafa needs time to have his mark on the squad. He will be supported to add depth to the squad. Managers need time. I have no doubt that we will have a strong second half to the season," he added.

While, Rafael Benitez said: "The difference is we are selling players and making big profits and investing the money so in our case you cannot blame the owner for spending money."

Benitez added: "I have been in Newcastle and the owner wasn't spending money. In January, hopefully the team are not depending on two or three players coming back as we are at the moment. January is a difficult window and there are not too many players available but when you have money to spend, you have to do it properly."
