Everton boss Ronald Koeman insists players still behind him despite nightmare start

Koeman’s decision to drop Wayne Rooney for the first time since his return to the club backfired as the Merseysiders were booed off after a solitary goal by Jeff Hendrick continued Burnley’s remarkable away-day transformation. The Clarets have picked up eight points on the road already – one more than they managed in the whole of last season. And remarkably they have come from visits to Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool and now Everton – clubs who all finished in the top seven last season. Despite a £140million summer rebuild, Everton are…

Everton 2 – Apollon Limassol 2: Toffees held by ten-men Cypriot side at home

Even with 10 men, after a late sending-off, Apollon struck for an 88th minute equaliser when Hector Yuste headed in a free-kick. Everton sub Nikola Vlasic thought he had delivered the winner in the 66th minute, finishing clinically after Wayne Rooney benefitted from a fortunate bounce off a defender, Gylfi Sigurdsson playing in his teenage team-mate. Rooney had earlier equalised with his third goal of the season for the Toffees but it was another far from convincing performance from the big-spending team Merseyside club. After suffering a humbling 3-0 defeat…
