It did little to diminish Allardyce's view of Rooney's overall contribution, with the 63-year-old singing his praises. "We all felt it, I think you do".

Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton has admitted that his side were not good enough during their 2-0 defeat at the hands of Everton this afternoon. The victory was confirmed when the Seagulls lost Anthony Knockaert to a red card for a reckless tackle on Leighton Baines.

"It's a shame Wayne missed the penalty because he had a very good performance in a sitting midfield role".

Tosun spoke to evertonfc.com after the game to describe the feeling among the camp following the win and how well he feels he is now settling into his new club after a slow start to his Premier League career. We have been really good at Goodison but we know we have to be better away.

We're all sorry we have a clown in charge who hasn't played you.

Schneiderlin was there on the substitutes' bench last week at Burnley but left out completely here by Sam Allardyce even with an injury sustained to Idrissa Gueye on Friday morning.

But Bong inadvertently made the breakthrough in the second half when he shinned Yannick Bolasie's curling delivery into an unguarded net, with Theo Walcott lurking.

Brighton remain seven points clear of the relegation zone, but they must still face all of the current top four before the end of the season.

Hughton said: "We should be as confident as we've been this season". Any player in that position, playing for any team, it's a team game, and it will see him missing three games.

As Allardyce teams go that amounted to a fairly attacking line-up, and Everton did indeed spend most of the first half pushing forward.
