After being given a warm welcome from the home fans, new manager Allardyce took his seat, hoping to see further signs of Everton's rejuvenation following their crushing 4-0 defeat of West Ham United in midweek.

Instead, he former England boss witnessed only dire fare in the first half with his side looking curiously flat until, two minutes after the break, a clever flick from Calvert-Lewin freed Sigurdsson to fire home expertly from 10 metres.

The young provider Calvert-Lewin struck in the 73rd minute, his seventh goal of thee season coming with a left-foot shot that took a cruel deflection off Mathias Jorgensen and into the net to consign Huddersfield to a fourth consecutive defeat.
