Everton fans would have breathed a sigh of relief on Saturday afternoon following a much-needed victory for the club.
The Merseyside outfit headed into the match against Brighton having won just two of their previous 11 Premier League outings.
As a result, the club dropped to 11th in the table, but they have since moved back up to ninth position following a 2-0 triumph at Goodison Park.
An own goal from Gaetan Bong and a hit from Cenk Tosun ensured that Everton snatched all three points.
The scoreline could have been by a bigger margin had Wayne Rooney not had his penalty saved in the latter stages of the contest.
Overall, it was a positive day for the Toffees, but plenty of fans are still pushing for manager Sam Allardyce to leave the club.
The recent form has not been forgotten, but the experienced coach has admitted that he wants to stay beyond this season.
Following Saturday’s result, fans continued to call for Allardyce’s head.
Spoke to a fellow blue who thought allardyce needed time….
Footballs dead. #EFC

Do not, please do not give Allardyce any credit for today.
This was a clear player based performance with Coleman, Baines, Jags, Rooney & Co. putting in the peformance.
This was Everton, the Everton we know.

It really is all about him. Saying players play for him, they don’t, they play for Everton FC. Get this ego out of our club!

Hope gueye is ok but Schneiderlin has the sort of cold that keeps him out till the end of his contract. I also hope that allardyce catches it and retires early.
