Rooney will struggle in midfield against top sides - Allardyce



Wayne Rooney "struggles" against the top sides, according to his Everton manager Sam Allardyce.

England's record goalscorer has been deployed in midfield in recent weeks by Allardyce, and was replaced inside an hour on Saturday as the Toffees ground out a turgid 0-0 draw at home to Liverpool.



"I can agree with you, to a certain degree, that Wayne struggles against the very best opposition," Allardyce said.

"He didn't play very well in the first half against Manchester City but, before that, he had been outstanding and we had been a little bit short in ­midfield in recent weeks anyway.

We're still playing Tom Davies at 19 and bringing on Beni Baningime at 19 years old and we are without Gylfi Sigurdsson, who can play there.
"Davy Klaassen is still an anomaly to me. Will he or won't he? If I had the opportunity to play him I would, but I haven't because I've got to win.

"So, I don't have the luxury of saying, 'Go on, give it a go lad,' because if we lose, it's me who gets the stick."
