Paulo Fonseca to replace Sam Allardyce at Everton?

Paulo Fonseca to replace Sam Allardyce at Everton?

Everton will take on Crystal Palace in the Premier League clash on Saturday.

"Seamus will go for a scan tomorrow".

Everton's convincing second-half performance was crowned with a third goal with the tireless Davies netting from Sigurdsson's excellent cut-back.

This is a ideal opportunity for the Toffees to get back on the winning track as they host a Palace team who have failed to impress of late, earning a 1-1 tie at home against Newcastle last weekend thanks to a easily awarded penalty decision.

Palace briefly rallied, Benteke going close with an nearly identical chance to the one he buried in this fixture last season when his towering header dropped inches wide before his strike partner Sorloth missed with a headed chance of his own.




Everton manager Sam Allardyce is relying on home form to lift his side clear of the threat of relegation trouble. Given all the injuries in the Crystal Palace attacking ranks, it is likely that Everton will be able to keep Palace from scoring. A fortunate bounce fell to Cuco Martina who took time to size up a clipped cross for Niasse who steered a header inside the near post to double the lead.

Niasse didn't have to move, just guide it the ball in. It is terrible defending from Palace and the fingers of blame will be pointed at Van Aanholt who appears to have completely switched off at the back.

Sigurdsson raced to turn the ball back into the six-yard box and Davies finished off the job. Williams uses his hand to block Benteke's acrobatic shot and Jon Moss spots the foul.

In a first half thin on noteworthy happenings, Everton worked hard to get behind Palace's defence and Wayne Rooney spent most of the opening 45 minutes camped out near the halfway line looking to find the right key to unlock the visitors' defence.
