Pardew unhappy with linesman's call


Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew feels assistant referee Simon Bennett made the wrong call in ruling out Damien Delaney's goal against Everton for offside.

Delaney, making the 600th league appearance of a 16-year league career, saw a 57th minute header ruled out for offside during the Eagles' 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park on Friday.

TV replays suggested that Bennett and referee Jon Moss chalked off the goal because James McArthur was in an offside position and interfering with play, but Pardew claims the assistant referee waved his flag because he thought the former Ireland international himself was offside.

"The assistant referee's explanation was he thought Damien was offside, but I gather the TV replays show he wasn't," he told Sky Sports.

"If that's what his call was then we can feel a bit hard done by on that one."

Everton manager Ronald Koeman was pleased with the point, which lifts his side up to third place in the Premier League table, but disappointed that his players managed just three shots on target during the match.

"It's a good point in the end. We defended set plays and second balls well against a difficult team," the Dutchman told Sky Sports.

"The team performance was outstanding, although we'd like to create more opportunities.

"We've had a good start to the season. The position in the table is not everything at the moment and we need to improve, but we're doing a good job."
