Crystal Palace boss Hodgson slams Everton boss for this reason

Crystal Palace boss Hodgson slams Everton boss for this reason

In addition to Gueye's minor injury, Allardyce lost on-loan Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala to a knee problem just before the break and right-back Seamus Coleman, in only his second match back after a 10-month absence with a double fracture of his leg, was replaced for the start of the season half with a thigh issue.

Everton boss Sam Allardyce is delighted with what he's seen from Tom Davies in the past week.

Everton cruised past a toothless Crystal Palace side with three second-half goals, the first from their Iceland global Gylfi Sigurdsson before Oumar Niasse and Tom Davies made the game safe.

The Eagles finally got some reward for their endeavours when Ashley Williams was harshly adjudged to have handeld in the area and Luka Milivojevic swept in the penalty.

Given all the injuries in the Crystal Palace attacking ranks, it is likely that Everton will be able to keep Palace from scoring.

"It's fantastic Wilf was able to play so much of the game with the injury", Hodgson said of Zaha's injury in quotes in The Independent.

Saturday's win over Crystal Palace saw the Blues tally an eighth win from 14 Premier League games at home - a record not bettered outside the top six.

The Premier League game between Everton and Crystal Palace will be broadcast live on NBC Sports Gold.

In the Frenchman's first game for the Toffees, he was part of a defence that conceded four first-half goals as they were beaten 5-1 by Arsenal.

Without the skill of Wilfried Zaha to link up with, Benteke lacked an understanding with new strike partner Alexander Sorloth.

Questions were also raised over Van Aanholt as he left Niasse unmarked for his goal instead opting to retreat to the goal line, giving the Senegalese a free header.
