The former Bolton and England boss, who hasn’t seen an Everton side lose since his appointment six matches ago, also aimed a dig towards the previous regime by saying that he was now man-managing the players also.
Allardyce saw his side come from behind at home to beat Swansea City by a comfortable 3-1 in the end, and said that the situation at Goodison Park has become much more comfortable since his appointment.
He said, “From a tactical point of view, I’ve simplified the game.
“And I’m man managing the players.
I brought some experienced and talented staff with me, along with the rest of the staff – I want everyone to get better. To turn around so quickly is great credit to everyone. Not just me.
“What looked like a desperate situation is becoming a comfortable one. And now people are looking up the table than down. The last clubs I took over were tougher to turn around initially.
“We’ve got to try to get a result against Chelsea and then we’ll really know what we’re made of. With this confidence if we can get a result there, we’re on the right track for finishing as high as we can. Let’s see if the lads can pull one out of the bag.”
