Manuel Pellegrini remains optimistic about his position at West Ham despite the unfortunate start of the season at FC West Ham.
Although the Londoners have lost all four of their opening games, the Chilean insisted that he still has the support of the board.
Before traveling from West Ham to Everton, the Chilean showed a defiant tone amid reports he was becoming increasingly frustrated with West Ham's starting line being routinely linked before the games.
About his relationship with the club's owners, Pellegrini said, "I know how they think."
"I talked to everyone before we started the project here and I keep thinking that way," he added.
Pellegrini added his long-term vision for the club and said, "Maybe if you want to make so many changes, it can be difficult, but I think that's the way to go in West Ham.
"We're improving the training ground, bringing along the players we wanted and growing with the stadium."
When asked if he was confident that the hammers would meet for the gavel, the Chilean said, "Right now I trust more than ever what I do.
"It's not the first time in my career that I've had bad results and every job is tough.
"It's not a good start, but we're absolutely confident."
Pellegrini confirmed that Jack Wilshire would not be available to play Everton after having problems with his ankle early in the week. Javier Hernandez also has doubts that he found a virus this week.
Asked on Everton and if her injuries would play a role in the game, he said, "We'll see how many of their players are playing, but in the end, it's best to help West Ham so we can play well."
