Last Updated: 11/02/18 12:00am
Everton's Sam Allardyce won the battle of ex-England managers at Goodison Park to ease growing pressure with a 3-1 victory over Roy Hodgson's struggling Crystal Palace.
Gylfi Sigurdsson, restored to the starting line-up along with Wayne Rooney after the 5-1 drubbing at Arsenal, and Oumar Niasse scored early in the second half with Tom Davies adding the third before Luka Milivojevic's consolation penalty.
Just a second win in 10 matches opened up a nine-point gap to the bottom three while extending Palace's remarkable run of not having won without the injured Wilfried Zaha since September 2016.
The Eagles are two points above the relegation zone after suffering a first defeat in five visits to the blue half of Merseyside.
