Gylfi Sigurdsson inspires Everton to victory over Crystal Palace

Everton striker Cenk Tosun ‘needs time to adapt to Premier League’ says manager Sam Allardyce

The Eagles looked to be on course to get a positive result at Goodison Park when the match was goalless at half time, but they imploded a little in the second half to fall to a terrible loss, and one man felt the wrath of the Selhurst Park faithful. "An Arsenal team as good as that punishes a lot of teams and punishes a lot of teams on their soil".

Eliaquim Mangala endured a frustrating debut, and Allardyce could drop him from the starting line-up on Saturday. "Only I would know that because it's my job to study the game".

"The first goal was a long goal kick that got headed up into the air and the second centre-back got caught on the wrong side of Sigurdsson, dived in to challenge and Sigurdsson skipped past him, then [James] Tomkins went for the block and it deflected in".

His predecessor in the role of England manager, Crystal Palace's Roy Hodgson was singled out by Allardyce in a tasteless manner.

Fonseca recently caused a stir during the post-match press conference after Shakhtar beat Manchester City in the last group stage game to qualify for the knockout rounds and Fonseca appeared dressed as masked vigilante Zorro.

'Yes we have to be concerned about Crystal Palace's strength but I think Wilf may have a problem and may not be playing so that will be an advantage to us.

And the Daily Mail claims that Everton will look to change their management structure in the summer with PSV Eindhoven sporting director Marcel Brands in line to replace Steve Walsh, who is the current under-pressure head of recruitment. Allardyce has enough confidence in his side to attack teams from the start in front of his supporters, but his conservative approach away from home is proving costly. "Our home form is very good".
