Atalanta v Everton: Koeman's men to get their groove back

Atalanta v Everton: Koeman's men to get their groove back

The pressure on Everton manager Ronald Koeman has increased after Everton's 3-0 loss to Atalanta in Thursday night's Europa League fixture.

England's record goalscorer left United to return to boyhood club Everton this summer after 13 successful years with the Red Devils.

His most recent goal came in United's 3-0 win over FC Basel, which was also his club debut in the Champions League.

"He will get the welcome he deserves", United manager Jose Mourinho said on Friday.

"I think the stadium will show him the respect he deserves". One of our strengths last season was that we had good defensive organisation and now we have lost our strength.

It was more of the same from Atalanta in the second half, minus the goals, with Andrea Petagna hitting the woodwork after being set up by former Middlesbrough midfielder Marten de Roon. Given that the other two sides in their group are Apollon Limassol and last season's semi-finalists Lyon, a good start in Italy is essential. "I wasn't so anxious after Chelsea, it started with the reaction in the second half against Tottenham - that 45 minutes and the first 45 minutes on Thursday, I think there are enough reasons to be anxious".

The Belgian arrived for £75m from Everton back in July and claimed three goals over pre-season, alongside scoring in the UEFA Super Cup against Real Madrid.

If Koeman wishes to stop the rot, he must play a more balanced side, and not leave the wings so exposed. Honestly we miss Pogba and we need him but we have good players. "He's the top goal-scorer in the Premier League as it stands but he's got to make sure that he puts the chances away." said Ferdinand.

Everton have kept four clean sheets already this season, so you may be tempted by backing No in the Both Teams To Score market at [1.98].

"But there is a lot of quality to the player, and a lot of quality around him".

And Ferdinand, who spent over a decade at United as a player, believes the Belgium worldwide will become a hero for his former club if can shine at pivotal times. "I still think he has a couple of months". Rooney despite what many have said is still probably our most unsafe goal threat but the one big change that needs to happen is that Calvert-Lewin needs to start.
