Sam Allardyce ready to lock horns with David Moyes

The match will be the Scot's last home game in charge of Everton ahead of his summer switch to Manchester United to replace Sir Alex Ferguson as boss.

Allardyce, who used to coach Moyes at Preston, said: "It will be the last game at home for David as manager so it will be an emotional affair for him, but I'm sure, knowing David as I do, that he will be able to control and calm his emotions and do his very best to get the team to win.

"I don't expect any favours whatsoever and I hope the crowd appreciate what he has done and that they show their appreciation.

"I think David Moyes is the perfect candidate for Manchester United.

"He will bring the same sort of stability and he will try and emulate what Sir Alex Ferguson has done. It will be the hardest job he has ever faced.

"It's an enormous move for him and his career then has gone to the next level, but I don't think anyone can do anything other than applaud him for what he has done for Everton over the last 11 years."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
