Man of the Match and Player Grades Poll for Everton vs Huddersfield

Everton 2 Huddersfield Town 0: Terriers create unwanted record at Goodison Park

TEAM NEWSSam Allardyce admits it will be a huge boost to have Michael Keane back fit for his first game in charge of Everton.

A home game against the Terriers will see him officially launched back into the Premier League and face up to the task at hand. "It didn't happen in the first half, but in the second we got what we wanted".

"Our resilience out of possession is looking very good", Allardyce added.

Seemingly playing with a lot to prove, the Everton players stepped up several gears for this game.

Sam Allardyce was happy to have his backroom team with him for Everton's win over Huddersfield Town.

Another flowing move from Everton culminated in Lossl palming Calvert-Lewin's stinging shot to safety while Mason Holgate directed a header from Sigurdsson's corner well wide seconds later.

And, in the result if not the performance, it was a dream start.

"It could have been better for entertainment, more passing and moving but we can build on that as we go on".

Davinson Sánchez was sent off in the 52nd minute for an elbow on Richarlison, but Spurs held on for the point. The saving grace, on this occasion, was that it was Laurent Depoitre and Tom Ince recovering lost balls, and not Mo Salah and Sadio Mane.

There were no goals in the second half as Paul Clement's struggling side slumped to another defeat. The commanding centre-half made a number of crucial tackles and interceptions. One high-class goal was out of keeping with a low-calibre game. Such is the Allardyce ethos. Calvert-Lewin played this role effectively against West Ham and could reprise the striker position again for this fixture. Aaron Lennon used his pace to take advantage of this getting past and creating plenty of opportunities for his Everton teammates.

In a forgettable first-half, David Wagner's side controlled the game but lacked a cutting edge - this is now the seventh straight away game that they have failed to score.

Faced with an energetic visiting side seeking to play on the front foot, the Blues' weaknesses were laid bare for the 40,000 inside Goodison and their new leader.

Yannick Bolasie is back in training after a year out, while Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka are still sidelined. "A 2-0 victory and back-to-back wins for us in the last two games have been vitally important for us to take the pressure of everybody".

A game otherwise devoid of drama contained two goals, the first particularly impressive.

Everton's clean sheet in the 4-0 win over West Ham was their first in the Premier League since the opening day of the season.

New Everton manager Sam Allardyce praised his players for their "effort" and "performance" following their 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town this afternoon.
