"When you finish the game strongly and put Liverpool under pressure then you consider yourself unlucky", said Allardyce.

Allardyce accepts Rooney is "bound to be disappointed" but the manager doubts his ability to make an impact against the Premier League's best.

Everton's form briefly picked up then, and Rooney took his tally to 10 goals in the league with a penalty against Swansea in December, but has failed to score since then.

Allardyce said he analyzes every Everton player's statistics and vowed to drop anyone who is not matching up to the standard he demands.

Speaking after 0-0 draw with Liverpool, Allardyce defended his decision to remove Rooney. It's because it's Everton v Liverpool isn't it?

Allardyce had deployed Rooney to the advanced Midfield role as age is becoming a factor for the former England global so much that he has had to revert from the top striker's role to that of an advanced midfielder, a condition occassioned by his tiring legs.

Cottee understands Rooney's frustration and believes a player of his quality deserves to have midfielders in and around him with legs.

The 231st Merseyside derby marked the 30th time Rooney squared off against Liverpool and the seventh in Everton blue.

'He made his debut for Everton when he was 16, he was playing in a great big derby match against Liverpool on his own park and he got substituted by the manager.

"Or do you want him to come off and show "I do care, I am upset with being taken off"?" We'll sit down in the next week and we'll talk it through and we'll see how he feels. I'm sure he's calmed down a bit now.

A heavy defeat would have been the ultimate act for Allardyce, who's in a loveless marriage with Evertonians and certainly can not be in cost subsequent season.

The former Manchester United captain completely blanked the outstretched hand of his manager before taking his bench on the bench.

As Sam Allardyce dropped to his knees, the sound of fury round Goodison Park grew to become tangible, coming out of indignant locals like corks from champagne bottles.

"The situation is it's his first season, it's been hard for everybody".

"There have been lots and lots of changes, not just with myself and the staff I've brought in, but lots of changes in the team".
