Premier League wrap: Coleman suffers muscle injury in Everton win

The Republic of Ireland defender suffered a terrible leg break a year ago but was superb on his full return to action against Leicester City ten days ago.

If Palace are to stay away from the relegation zone they need to overturn a damning statistic - they have not won a match without Zaha since September 2016.

Don't know when this occurred in the match, but Seamus (not surprisingly) didn't come close today to matching his frankly ridiculously good return and performance against Leicester.

"I was a bit disappointed we didn't get the clean sheet but I thought we were defensively solid and we found a way to take our chances in the second half".

"That is very important, that they do some bonding together, get to understand each other better and understand what each other wants to achieve and often that can't happen when you're coming in from home everyday, training and then go home again".

Idrissa Gueye, Eliaquim Mangala and Seamus Coleman were all withdrawn during Saturday's victory, and missing them will be a source of worry for manager Sam Allardyce.

A GoFundMe account established for Randall Margraves will issue refunds to those who want them, according to its organizer. The Eaton County Sheriff's Office said people had made complaints against John Geddert , without providing details.

"Surprised, very surprised. I've not heard it before", Allardyce said.

"I don't think so", said Allardyce when asked if there was any link to Coleman's previous injury. It's more a muscle injury.

Midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin was an 80th minute substitute against Palace, and the Frenchman received jeers from the crowd due to reported attitude problems he had under interim manager David Unsworth.

"He's got a great position at the club at the moment and that's a very hard decision for him to give up - I'm sure about that because Everton U23s is a very privileged position and he's done very well in it".

"He is a very important part of the squad this year".
