Reports in the British media had claimed that Everton FC had targeted Silva in their quest to replace Dutchman, Ronald Koeman.
The Dutchman, signed last week from Southampton for a reported fee of 75 million pounds, rose inside the area to head home an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain corner kick.
English Premier League side Everton, who have scored 24 goals in 20 league matches this season, recorded consecutive goalless draws in their last two fixtures against Chelsea and West Bromwich Albion.
Among the matches to be broadcast live is the clash between Arsenal and Newcastle, with both teams seeking redemption from the less than impressive results they had in their last matches.
Everton have revived their season after Allardyce took over last month, winning three of their last four English Premier League games to climb to 10th position.
A remarkable climax to the game saw Watford’s Tom Cleverley then miss a penalty kick in the 11th minute of added time.
