Are Everton already eyeing up a replacement for Sam Allardyce?

Everton's English striker Wayne Rooney (R) and Everton's Senegalese striker Oumar Niasse react at the final whistle during the English Premier League football match between Everton and Crystal Palace at Goodison Park in Liverpool, north west England on 10 February 2018. The second was simply we had enough players around the ball in the far corner but it got slipped in and Andros Townsend got caught on the wrong side of his man and allowed the ball to be crossed for them to score the goal.

According to Allardyce, Zaha is going to be back in action sooner than expected after the Cote d'Ivoire worldwide had been feared out of the season.

"I don't know what Seamus' injury is, but he's going for a scan tomorrow", the Everton manager said. "It is not related to the broken leg he suffered", Allardyce said. "Our next way game is Watford so we will be looking to get something from there".

"We had to take the game to Crystal Palace and we had those players on the pitch".

Luka Milivojevic netted a consolation penalty for Palace, which is three points above the relegation zone. "Then you have the pace of Theo Walcott on the flank and the little tricks that Gylfi was pulling out - it all helped us get our rewards in the end".

Everton leapfrogged Bournemouth to climb to ninth on 34 points from 27 games and are within two points of out-of-form Burnley in seventh.

The 63-year-old's afternoon was spoiled somewhat by injuries to defensive pair Eliaquim Mangala and Seamus Coleman, but Allardyce moved to allay fears over extended periods on the sidelines for them in spite of their first half withdrawals.

"I thought [Sorloth] did well - he hasn't played for two months because the season in Denmark finishes in mid-December".
