Ronald Koeman concern - pressure mounts on Dutchman

Share

Koeman's side now sit 18 in the top-flight table following three successive league defeats, but after facing the league's elite sides in recent weeks the Dutchman insists there is no need to panic.

Few would have expected Koeman's name to feature highly on the "managers at risk" list after the club's spending spree in the close season which saw players such as Gylfi Sigurdsson, Davy Klaassen and Michael Keane arrive for big fees.

But for all the noise surrounding his off-field situation, Rooney's focus on football has not been distracted and after taking part in training at Finch Farm on Tuesday, he made clear his desire to face Sunderland.

Koeman said his side was "afraid" and lacking confidence in the early stages at Old Trafford but that he was encouraged by the way the players responded, especially after a awful Europa League display away in Italy to Atalanta on Thursday.

"He is going to score a lot of goals for Manchester United", Lampard told BT Sport.

Everton also lost 3-0 at Atalanta in the Europa League and Koeman stressed the need for time following the defeat to United on Sunday.

The 32-year-old Boyle doesn't plan on being sidelined long, though the team doesn't yet have a formal timetable for his return. Boyle signed a two-year, $5.1 million deal in the offseason with the Devils. "We are in a good place right now", Boyle said.

"I can understand Everton wanting to flesh out their squad with the Lukaku money in the summer - but unless you've got goals in the side you're not going to break into the top four", Collymore wrote in his column for the Mirror.

Ronald Koeman was installed as the new 2/1 favourite for the sack before Everton's match against Man Utd, and now after a 4-0 drubbing at Old Trafford it's not looking good for the under-fire Dutchman, who could be in danger of becoming the second top-flight managerial casualty of the season. "Two teams try to match each other and play the same system and it's 0-0 or 1-0".
