Osman: Allardyce could end Anfield hoodoo

Leon Osmans big blue noseFormer Everton midfielder Leon Osman says that the affect of a new manager is already ringing around Goodison Park in Sam Allardyce’s first week in charge.

Allardyce saw his side beat Huddersfield 2-0 in his first game as Everton boss, and Osman says that the affect Allardyce will have on the side will get stronger as time goes on, even hinting that there is hope that the Blues can win at Anfield on Sunday.

“I think it has probably started,” Osman said. “But I do think it will intensify. Allardyce is a man manager, he is the type of guy that gets his players to play as well as they possibly can.

“We are beginning to see signs of that, but I think we will see better as well.

“I think (Wayne) Rooney playing a little bit deeper has helped.

“It has given Gylfi Sigurdsson the space and the pockets to go in, to show that him and Rooney can play together in different areas of the field.

“I think you are starting to see better from him and from Everton as a whole.

“Sam Allardyce is the last manager to win at Anfield. So there are signs that Everton can go there and win, but obviously they will be up against an in-form Liverpool with an attacking force, but they do have their weaknesses at the back.

“I think we should be going there to try and win the game, but to avoid defeat would be okay as well.”
