Everton 2-0 Huddersfield Town

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

The Terriers are simply not West Ham.

Lennon cut inside to feed Calvert-Lewin and the striker's clever flick fell invitingly to Sigurdsson, who side-footed a curling low finish into Lossl's right-hand corner.

He appeared in the night, heaving himself from the passenger door of a classic car with blacked out windows. "Tomorrow's match will tell me about the players we have at this moment in time". However, he may not get a better chance to get off to a flying start this weekend with a home game against the leagues bottom club Crystal Palace.

Huddersfield have lost six of their last eight Premier League games after losing just one of their first six.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce: "Everton was always going to be a temptation to come out of retirement". If any half-time score deserved to be 0-0 then this was it.

A goalmouth scramble in Everton's box five minutes before the interval had Toffees' hearts in mouths before Jordan Pickford scooped the ball clear, but neither side could go into the break a goal to the good.

Everton crushed West Ham, winning 4-0 on Wednesday behind a Wayne Rooney hat-trick.

A standing ovation again met Rooney's substitution, as Goodison recognised his display.

Everton made sure of the points 16 minutes from time.

Both sides appeared more willing to push men forward in the second period, resulting in a significant increase in entertainment, but Everton continued to look the better in attack.

Although Sam Allardyce needs to address the defence over everything else at Everton, he will also need to find a permanent striker that can fill the void left by the summer sale of Romelu Lukaku.

With heavy defeat following heavy defeat, it has been particularly difficult of late for Everton to blood their promising youngsters.

Back as the lone frontman after being rested in midweek, he was again too isolated. There has, almost organically, been a marked improvement as performances have picked up though. They know they let too many goals in before I got here and that has to stop. Allardyce nonetheless described his reception as "brilliant" and he got a louder welcome before kick-off than Speedo Mick, a fundraising Everton fan who appeared on the pitch in the swimming trunks that account for his nickname.

Forward Calvert-Lewin, meanwhile, benefited from his second start in a week to deliver a strong performance leading the line.

Goodison, eerily quiet, at last stirred in the 22nd minute when Huddersfield skipper Tommy Smith tripped Aaron Lennon in full flight to earn a yellow card.
