Everton up to ninth with easy win over Palace

Lionel Messi of FC Barcelona is fouled by Mario Hermoso of RCD Espanyol during the Spanish Copa del Rey Quarter Final Second Leg match between FC Barcelona and RCD Espanyol at Camp Nou

Sam Allardyce calls on Everton to continue strong home form ahead of Crystal Palace visit this weekend

The Donegal defender was making just his second appearance in nine months since breaking his leg back in March, but was replaced at half-time by Johnjoe Kenny.

The Ireland captain was replaced at half-time and the injury will be assessed further on Sunday, with Everton boss Sam Allardyce confirming post-match that the problem is not related to the broken leg he suffered a year ago.

However, Coleman's problem isn't related to the leg break that has kept him out of virtually all this season.

Saturday's result was never in doubt after Glyfi Sigurdsson scored Everton's first after 46 minutes and he was their standout performer, according to Danny Murphy.

The second-half was a different story as it took less than a minute for Gylfi Sigurdsson to put the Toffees ahead after poor defending, before Oumar Niasse capitalised on more defensive lapses on 51 minutes to double the lead. 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.

A source says, "The VFX and CGI work on 2.0 is happening across at least three studios, between two continents". Last week, the speculations were rife that the filmmakers have plans to postpone the release date again.

Everton's next league game is against Watford at Vicarage Park on February 24.

"There have been a few recent results like getting the draw against West Brom and then beating Leicester where we have seen improved performances but I have come here to push Everton on".

"Away from home, we need to be tougher mentally and be able to sit in and dig it out and frustrate a bit more". It is something we have to try and turn around.

"I was disappointed we didn't get a clean sheet in the end, I don't know if it was a penalty".
