Crystal Palace boss Hodgson slams Everton boss for this reason

Again Palace's centre-backs were nowhere to be seen as an Everton attacker found space in the area, Niasse left alone as Tomkins and Fosu-Mensah rushed to the ball, the striker making no mistake to head past Hennessey from Cuco Martina's cross.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce dismissed last weekend's 5-1 rout at Arsenal as a blip on Thursday despite labelling it a "disaster" full of "pathetic" performances in an emotionally charged interview straight after the match.

As Everton tighten their grip on a place in next season's Premier League, here are three winners and three losers.

His third strike from range this season, no current Premier League player has scored more goals from outside the area than Sigurdsson since the Iceland worldwide made his debut in January 2012.

There had been something of a war of words in the press building up to this one, Palace boss Roy Hodgson suggesting that there was bad blood lingering from insulting personal comments made about him by opposite number Sam Allardyce back in 2016. The match starts at 23:00 on 10 February 2018.

"You have to welcome new players and they have only come in to strengthen the team", he said.

Palace are awaiting medical results on Wilfred Zaha's knee, as their prized winger sustained some damage during Palace's last game, a 1-1 tie against Newcastle.

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.

But the Senegalese striker, who has become a key part of Allardyce's side, got the last laugh with a goal and assist against the Eagles.

And his second appearance did not go much better, lasting just 43 minutes before having to be taken off with an injury.

Were the Everton fans right to jeer Schneiderlin?
