Everton boss Sam Allardyce says he is delighted for Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who capped off a solid performance by setting up a goal for Gylfi Sigurdsson before scoring one for himself as the Blues beat Huddersfield 2-0 at Goodison Park.
In Allardyce’s first game in charge, Everton took a while to get going, but once they had experienced their first Allardyce half-time team talk, things started to work in the last third for Everton once more.
“Getting a win in your first game after a fantastic win on Wednesday night – and back-to-back league wins for the first time this season. Let’s hope it’s onwards and upwards, boys,” said Allardyce.
“It took me six games at Palace to get my first win and everybody was telling everybody else I’d come back too soon, I wasn’t the man I used to be.
“If I take a job I’m totally, fully, 100% committed and I don’t take the job in any other circumstances.
“I turned many a job down before this one. I felt this one was right for me. It’s a dream job for me and I’ll give it 100%.
“I’m so pleased Dominic got a goal after his work on the front line.
“A young centre-forward learning his trade in the Premier League and to get that goal at that particular time just killed Huddersfield off.”
