With just one away win this term, Everton were beaten in a poor match by a Watford side who were only just the better of two awful teams.
But Allardyce says that he is pleased with what he saw, despite admitting his team can’t finish and give the ball away too much.
“They had somebody who can finish and we didn’t,” he said.
“We ended up giving a goal away we should have avoided. It was a really good finish from Deeney though.
“In our final third we couldn’t find anything.
“I was pleased with the overall performance, but in the final third we could have done a lot more.
“When you play away from home in these games they can be scrappy. At this time of year teams look over their shoulders to see where they are.
“Our final third play was the big disappointment – goals overall have been our problem this season.
“Our best chance fell to Michael Keane who had a header from three yards out – don’t know how that went wide of the post.”
He’s trolling us isn’t he?
