Koeman: Everton fans can not complain about players´ attitude

Koeman: Everton fans can not complain about players´ attitude

But Koeman insists that he ultimately has no bearing on the Everton hierarchy's decision whether to retain or relinquish his services. You go down in the result, they are really defensive-minded, really physical.

"I understand the whistles at half time and I understand everybody is really disappointed by the final result".

Everton manager Ronald Koeman says the time for excuses is over ahead of Sunday's visit of Burnley to Goodison Park, live on Sky Sports.

Dyche's men have taken eight points from testing trips to Stamford Bridge, Wembley, Anfield and Goodison Park this season, collecting two wins and two draws against four of last season's top-seven sides, topping last season's points total on the road already.

Koeman believes that his side were unlucky not to have been awarded a penalty at Goodison Park, however, while also claiming that the attitude of his players can not be questioned on this occasion.

"If you get a lot of chances then you need that goal".

For Koeman and Everton though, it will be an uncomfortable worldwide break as their fourth defeat of the season leaves them in 16th, and the manner of his team's performance will leave the Dutchman with a lot of questions to answer after another poor display from a team he spent £150m on in the summer to improve. "But we'll continue because what I saw today is how to come out of this hard situation". "But what I saw today, I thank my players for the commitment they showed today".

"In life you don't get a second opportunity, but I'm not unhappy with what I saw from the team. All the stuff and the questions is not in my hands", he said. We need to forget about it and focus on what we need to do better as a team.

"It's not nice to get two weeks in an worldwide break on the back of a defeat but that's football".

"It is a short session on Saturday, and then we play on Sunday". We had to score at least one or maybe two goals in the first 20 minutes.
