Liverpool — Sam Allardyce won the clash of former England managers as Everton beat Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace 3-1 in the Premier League on Saturday.

Gylfi Sigurdsson, restored to the starting lineup along with Wayne Rooney after the shambolic 5-1 drubbing at Arsenal, and Oumar Niasse scored early in the second half with Tom Davies adding the third.

Luka Milivojevic netted a consolation penalty for Palace, who are three points above the relegation zone.

Everton are four points better off in 10th place after enjoying a revival under Allardyce.

Allardyce served one match as Hodgson's successor as England manager in 2016 before being fired over unguarded comments to an undercover reporter.

Hodgson led England at the 2014 World Cup and two editions of the European Championship.
