Ronald Koeman: Everton form not putting me under pressure

Wayne Rooney is set to be recalled by Everton as Ronald Koeman turns back to experience, in an attempt to halt his team's nosedive and safeguard his own future. The duo took advantage of meetings to discuss the proposed ground move from Goodison Park to Bramley Moore Dock to offer a show of support.

Corriere dello Sport talk up the pressure and say Everton are in "crisis" with Koeman. Moshiri has previously stated that the manager has his "total support".

Ronald Koeman has won 18.2% of his Premier League away games as Everton manager (W4, D7, L11) compared to 36.8% at previous club Southampton (W14, D8, L16). We had two strikers in front and you need to make hard decisions in other positions behind the two strikers.

"The player had several problems physically and we tried to solve that problem".

The Everton boss has been involved in a long-term, simmering stand-off with the Irish management team over their handling of McCarthy, who hasn't played a single minute this season because of a knee problem.

"In terms of confidence, we find it hard".

The Seagulls can be relatively content with their start to the new season as they find themseleves sat five places above the bottom three on seven points.

"You need a little bit of luck; you need to score the first goal in a game and we need to change that".

"I think it's more a question to be answered halfway through the season because we've played four title contenders", he said.

Reid, who made over 220 appearances for the club from 1982 to 1989, said Koeman's side appear to lack the stomach for a fight. "I think we all bring something different to the team", he said. They look scared to put in a shift.

A club of Everton's size, especially with the money invested in the summer, should undoubtedly be firing higher in the table, but the trip to The Amex on Saturday is not the ideal fixture to get their form back on track. "I'm not interested in his comments", Koeman said.

"The fact he is now playing regularly at worldwide level will only improve him more as a player", Hughton said.
