Everton wins again after penalty controversy at Palace

Palace dropped points for the first time after wins against Southampton and Manchester United.

Dropping off into space 10 yards outside the Palace box in the 10th minute, he delivered a lovely reverse pass that Seamus Coleman latched onto before putting a goal on a platter for Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

I am not criticizing the referee.

"It is early days but we are looking to build on every game, the more we are training together, it is exciting times but we are not getting carried away".

"I'm happy to score today", the 30-year-old said.

"I think the rule is a nonsense". The idea that you can look at this on a screen and this constitutes a handball.

"We have to look at the momentum and know that every game will be hard". If I could ignore it, I would have enjoyed playing football.

"I do not understand how we have allowed this rule to come into operation", Hodgson said. We have a new squad, with new players, they adapted really well. "For me, it's completely unacceptable and I've got to be honest with you, it's certainly destroying my enjoyment of the game of football". And I'm not saying that just because we lost the match, because last week we had a decision that goes our way.

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti saw his team make it five straight wins in all competitions this season, but was not completely satisfied with the display at Selhurst Park.

"Now we have to take on board rules which we are being suggested are the right ones to judge handball and I don't think they are the right ones to judge handball".

"The performance was hard".

"The game in the first half was quite good and we were able to play how we wanted, the second half was more hard because Crystal Palace played a good second half and put a lot of pressure on us". "The first half was quite good, we were able to play as we wanted".

Because of the rules of football that have been understood and accepted by the people since childhood, these days we, even experienced coaches and players, are in a situation where we can not understand what a handball is and what it does not. D.
