Everton striker Cenk Tosun 'not bothered' by being benched and snubbed by manager Sam Allardyce

Everton striker Cenk Tosun insists he was not bothered by Sam Allardyce's decision not to play him in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace as he is focusing on getting fitter.

The Turkey international joined the Toffees in a £27million move in January after four fine seasons with Besiktas.

But it has been a tough start for the 26-year-old, who has started just two Premier League games and has failed to find the net so far.

Allardyce kept Tosun on the bench for the entirety of Everton's win against Palace, with Oumar Niasse starting - and scoring - in his absence, but Tosun insists it has not damaged his confidence.

'I am in a completely different league,' the forward is quoted as saying by Turkish-Football.com.

'I'm doing everything to settle in and bond with my new team-mates. I did not play in the last game, but it does not bother me.
