Under-pressure Everton manager Ronald Koeman claimed he wished him having a hard time side had obtained “a bit of confidence” after Wayne Rooney’s 90th-minute penalty made them a 1-1 draw at Brighton.


The Toffees, who invested ₤ 140m on brand-new gamers in the summer season, have actually won simply two of their opening eight league games this period.

As well as they produced another lacklustre screen at the Amex Arena, with residence goalkeeper Floor covering Ryan just seriously evaluated in the dying seconds of the match.


The Toffees, that move up one location to 16th, next host Toolbox in the organization.

“We know we can play better but the commitment and belief was really positive,” said Koeman.

“Maybe it’s only one point, but it is a different picture. We at least deserved one point.”

Were it except Bruno’s late indiscretion, it is most likely Everton would have fallen to their 5th organization loss of the season.

Disallow an initiative from Nikola Vlasic and also a firm angled strike by Mason Holgate, they did little to cause panic in Brighton’s arranged and also potent backline, once again led very well by Lewis Dunk.

The visitors did come close to seizing all three factors in the final seconds, however that would certainly have been akin to painting covering damp.

Rooney was largely impotent up front as well as ₤ 45m signing Gylfi Sigurdsson once more looked off-key – he had one initiative on goal, a 20-yard free-kick which, uncharacteristically, flew extremely broad.

Regardless of their summer investment, Everton have scored only seven goals in their past 13 organization matches under Koeman, and more pertinently have actually only won two times.
