Sam Allardyce to miss first European game in charge of Everton

Everton manager Sam Allardyce

Allardyce will be looking to stamp his own mark on the Everton side as he looks to steer them to calmer waters in the Premier League, and he will be given money to spend in the new year.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has suggested that Everton could build a statue of their new manager Sam Allardyce should they prevail over the Reds in the Merseyside derby this weekend.

Ball wrote for the Liverpool Echo: "A lot of Evertonians seem anxious about Sammy Lee's Liverpool connections but I've seen him in opposition to the Reds many times and he'll be the first one to jump up and celebrate if the Blues score at Anfield on Sunday".

It said the athletes had asked CAS to rule before the start of the February 9-25 Pyeongchang Olympics in South Korea. The team has since been stripped of 11 of the 33 medals it won in Sochi as a result of doping violations.

The Everton boss will not travel with the squad and it is understood Craig Shakespeare will take charge for the European clash with Apollon Limassol.

Needless to say, it got plenty of reaction.

No doubt Liverpool fans will be delighted with the draw, given that it is at home, and gives them yet another opportunity to get one over on their rivals from down the road. People know about Everton Football Club, people know about the history here, people know about the quality here, and you just have to walk around [Finch Farm] to see the plans they have put in here to make sure the future is bright going forward. "This team this year must go there with no fear and go to win".

The pair, who last met in the tournament in the 2012 semi-final, which Liverpool won 2-1, will play each other at Anfield on the weekend beginning January 5.

Allardyce will not be travelling to Cyprus with what is likely to be a weakened squad to face Limassol in a dead-rubber outing, with the local derby on Sunday taking precedence.
