Allardyce denies row with Rooney over derby substitution

And it appears more outgoings than incomings will be on the cards at Goodison Park when the transfer window reopens.

"Wayne Rooney only had one shot today but his contribution in possession was better than our other midfield players today and I was pleased with him".

Sam Allardyce brushed off the taunts of Everton fans who turned on him during the 1-1 Premier League draw at Swansea.

"But there's a big problem with our away results, changing that is a confidence issue, and in the last two away games we've tried to put that right".

"It's the role he wants to play, I've said many times". If you're going to get into Europe you can't get there without two players getting into double figures - minimum - so that's been a massive struggle this year.

"Jordan changed our game because he kept the ball, the team are able to breathe when he is on the pitch".

"It's a team game and you make a decision on the day to try and help the team to get a victory and we did that by three substitutions".

The 28-year-old returned from a year out with a cruciate ligament injury in December and has so far failed to hit the heights he reached in his Crystal Palace days. We want better quality in certain areas.

But there has been unease about the style of play during his reign and, after being second best at Swansea for most of a frantic encounter, they have now won only once in eight away games.

Everton travel to relegation-threatened Swansea on Saturday, with Allardyce prioritising an improvement in their away form over the closing games of the season.

"Really we were all very disappointed at the end that we didn't win it. those substitutions had an effect because the players like Yannick and Tom had done their job before that but like any player as the game goes on they get a little bit worn out so you put fresh legs on and that had a positive effect I'm glad to say". "The players can not allow themselves to slip from the levels they need to get against a team like Swansea that are fighting relegation".
