Everton beat Crystal Palace 3-1
After a 5-1 hammering at Arsenal last time out, Everton responded well in front of their fans on Saturday.
Crystal Palace held their own in a competition first half at Goodison Park, but at the start of the second period the Eagles lost their head.
Everton scored two goals in quick succession. Gylfi Sigurdsson opened for the Toffees, before striker Oumar Niasse doubled the lead.
Tom Davies scored a third for the hosts to kill the game, before Luka Milivojevic scored a late penalty for Palace.
Bad news for Seamus Coleman
Irish right-back Seamus Coleman was back in the Everton starting XI on Saturday.
But the defender was subbed out the game at the interval. He was replace by Jonjoe Kenny.
After the match, Sam Allardyce confirmed that Seamus Coleman is once again injured. The Everton boss confirmed:
Seamus Coleman has a muscle injury and will have a scan tomorrow. It is not related to the broken leg he suffered.
Everton fans will be hoping that Coleman’s injury is minor.
Coleman has only recently made his long awaited return to action after a horrible double leg break.
Seamus suffered a double leg break over a year ago in an international following a tackle from Aston Villa’s Neil Taylor.
It’s worth noting that Everton are now off until February 24. That’s when they take on Watford at Vicarage Road.
With a bit of a break on their hands, Everton are leaving England for a warm weather training camp.
