What time is Sean Dyche's first Everton press conference as new manager set for transfer questions

Sean Dyche's first press conference as Everton manager will take place today (February 2) at 2:15pm.

The former Burnley boss was confirmed as Frank Lampard's replacement on the eve of transfer deadline day and has signed a two-and-a-half year deal with the Blues.

Whereas the former Chelsea midfielder managed two arrivals upon his appointment, last year, in the form of Donny van de Beek and Dele Alli, there were no new faces through the door this time around as the window slammed shut.

The 51-year-old is no stranger to Everton or Goodison Park after being in the opposite dugout 14 times during his managerial career. He averaged 1.36 points against the Blues winning six of the meetings, drawing one and losing seven.

His time with the Clarets came to an end towards the conclusion of the Premier League campaign last season after 10 years in charge when he was relieved of his duties at Turf Moor. He departed Burnley losing just one of his previous four meetings with Everton.

Now, he has been tasked with keeping them in the English top flight as they look to avoid being relegated from the division for the first time since the 1950-51 season. They currently sit 19th, just two points off safety.

Dyche will take charge of his first game with the Blues on Saturday when they host Premier League leaders Arsenal at Goodison Park. His opposite number and former Everton midfielder, Mikel Arteta, is looking to extend their lead at the summit to eight points.

He will face the media for the first time at Finch Farm to preview the fixture as well as discussing his appointment. He is expected to be asked on a range of things from the lack of movement in the transfer window, the Everton board and possibly fan protests.

A defender in his playing days making over 230 appearances for Chesterfield, he brings with him Ian Woan as assistant manager, ex-England international Steve Stone as first team coach, and Mark Howard supporting sports science. Alan Kelly stays on as goalkeeper coach.
