Sam Allardyce believes David Unsworth would find it hard to give up his position as Under-23s boss and director of coaching at Everton following links to the vacant senior post at Oxford United, but claims the 44-year-old will have to "take the plunge" at some stage if he wishes to become a manager.

TWO whirlwind second half goals in the 46th and 51st minutes from and Oumar Niasse and Gylfi Sigurdsson knocked the stuffing out of Crystal Palace.

A defeat against Crystal Palace would put Saturday's opponents, now 14th, just a point behind Everton - who go into the weekend just seven points off the bottom three.

Allardyce had responded to last weekend's horror show against Arsenal by restoring nearly the same starting XI that had beaten Leicester. Eliaquim Mangala was handed his debut in place of Phil Jagielka but the line-up was otherwise the same as 10 days ago.

Sigurdsson found himself with the chance to try his luck from 25 yards and the ball was deflected in from 25 yards. He tries a shot, but it's blocked.

"Seamus will go for a scan tomorrow".

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

Livewire Niasse was involved again as Davies put the Toffees three-up.

The Toffees are now just two points off Burnley in seventh place after extending their unbeaten run against the Eagles to seven games, but Schneiderlin received a frosty reception when he was brought on with 10 minutes remaining.

Everton secured their second win in nine games on a comfortable afternoon against Palace at Goodison Park.

"As Fergie said: 'I'm getting too old to retire.' A great statement that was".
