Everton boss Allardyce admits dropped Williams angry

Everton boss Sam Allardyce admits Ashley Williams was angry after being dropped for the draw with Swansea City.

Williams has been omitted from the matchday 18 for the past two games.

Asked how Williams is coping with not being in the squad, Allardyce said: “Not great, like any seasoned professional, not great but I have to be fair to Funes Mori who has been there waiting for the time the Ashley has been out, and he's been out a long time injured and played a big part in the Everton team before I arrived here.

“So I have to be fair to him and it's one of the difficult areas I've got where I've got four centre-halves for two positions at the moment.

“So Ashley is the one being left out and he won't be very happy, I accept that."
