Allardyce must unleash rarely-seen Everton player v Man City, he will get fans off their seats


Everton are starting to build up a bit of momentum with wins in their last two outings against Brighton and Stoke but Sam Allardcye’s men face a much bigger task on Saturday when they welcome Manchester City to Goodison Park.

After a two-week break, Allardyce should really look to make some changes, especially when a clash with the Premier League champions-elect is going to be a completely different ball-game to one against the likes of Brighton and relegation-threatened Stoke.

One change that Allardyce must definitely make is to unleash the rarely-seen Davy Klaassen, who has barely kicked a ball since signing from Ajax in the summer.

Since becoming Everton manager, Allardyce has given Klaassen just six minutes of game-time in the first-team when he came off the bench in the 2-0 win over Brighton.

The Netherlands international was an unused substitute against Stoke but surely it is time that fans have the chance to get off their seats and get excited about the midfield mastery of the playmaker, who has not been given anywhere near a fair shot at Goodison Park.

In all competitions, Klaassen has made just 14 appearances for the Toffees with only five of them coming in the Premier League.

Before his cameo against Brighton the Dutch midfielder had not featured since September after being axed by Ronald Koeman and then over-looked by both David Unsworth and Allardyce.

The game against Man City is a perfect chance for Klaassen to prove his worth and he simply has to start.

In other Everton news, Stan Collymore believes that this 46-year-old manager will be a perfect fit at Goodison Park.
