"It's a blip that we have to get over quickly", he said. There's a lot of people that have worked with me who've had that same desire and gone on to be managers, gone on to be good managers.

The Seagulls had taken a first-half lead through a clinical finish from Colombia winger Jose Izquierdo before the 18th-placed Potters, who remain in the bottom three on goal difference, levelled through a curling effort from Switzerland worldwide Xherdan Shaqiri 22 minutes from time.

Allardyce defended his on-loan centre-half Eliaquim Mangala after his hard debut at the heart of the defence against Arsenal.

That was an titillating pre-amble to this occasion and until the second half, their spat was the most entertaining thing about this fixture.

Hodgson revealed before the match that Allardyce had still not apologised for mocking his speech impediment during the "sting" footage that cost Allardyce his job as England manager in September 2016.

Having managed previously at Porto after spending a number of years as a player there, Fonseca has gone from strength to strength in management and was the named coach of the year in 2016/17 in Ukraine's top-flight. That being said, we will have to be at our best game to beat Crystal Palace. "It is more his muscle than to do with his (broken) leg", added Allardyce, whose side registered only their second win in 10 matches to ease the pressure.

The win took Everton to ninth on 34 points while Palace are 14th on 27 points, just two points above the relegation zone.

"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".

Our home form is very good, our points per game is very good, eight games at home since I've been here and 17 points.
