Allardyce came in at Goodison Park to replace Ronald Koeman in November after a dismal run of results under the Dutchman, and has been tasked with keeping the Toffees in the Premier League. "An Arsenal team as good as that punishes a lot of teams and punishes a lot of teams on their soil".

Shaqiri then levelled the score with a wonderful individual effort from range, while Charlie Adam failed to convert a penalty in the first minute of second-half stoppage time.

Allardyce defended his on-loan centre-half Eliaquim Mangala after his hard debut at the heart of the defence against Arsenal. "I thought that some of our football in that period was more than acceptable, but it didn't produce the goal, and the third put the game beyond our reach".

"There wasn't anything wrong with his performance in the second half".

Everton had been strongly linked with two manager candidates before Sam Allardyce was appointed to save the club from the horror the 2017-18 season was turning into.

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.

"It is not related to the broken leg he suffered".

"We have to be concerned about Palace's strengths but Zaha not playing could be an advantage".

It's looking very likely he will achieve that goal, with Everton sitting comfortably now in ninth place in the table.

"We need to avoid the threat of relegation and it needs to start with Crystal Palace", Allardyce said.

Asked if he would be willing to share a drink with Allardyce, Hodgson replied: "We've a train to catch so I don't think there will be time". "Our home form is very good".
