In a post-interview with Ronald Koeman, the Everton boss admitted that his side were “lucky” since Brighton were not able to score a second goal or that would have guaranteed defeat.
While Rooney created a draw with Brighton, but the Toffees are still in 16th place, and the pressure in Koeman is mounting since he has already spent more than £100 million in the past two transfer windows.
Many assumed that with the money Everton invested during the transfer window would eventually lead good results. However, the Toffees are in a critical stage, and the Dutchman may even lose his job if the downhill trajectory of the club continues.
“One poor defensive moment, how we tried to block and not block the ball in two situations, first by Dominic — stay on your feet don’ t go down, and the same for Morgan in the second situation,” Koeman said.
“After that [we were] lucky they didn’t score the second.”
“At least it’s one point because that’s what we deserve.”
