Ronald Koeman believes that Everton are perfectly played during the 4-0 victory over Manchester City. The Dutch manager gave his colleague Josep Guardiola making it the largest competitienederlaag from his trainerscarrière.
“The team effort was perfect”, said Koeman after the game. “The second goal just after peace had a big impact on the match. But the way the second half played was great.”
“I think it’s impossible to be on a higher level to perform in every aspect of football,” said the manager, who last week even new players had demanded at the clubleiding after the 1-2 defeat in the FA Cup against Leicester City.
“With the arrival of Morgan Schneiderlin, we have more balance in the team. Therefore, the team is now stronger, as will any fan of Everton now happy,” said Koeman.
“This momentum, we must now hold. We are well on the year started in the defeat against Leicester after. We have in two other matches the zero bound, I hope that we will persevere.”

The 4-0 victory was flattered, because Everton throughout the match only six attempts made, compared with thirteen shots of the City. Guardiola stressed that his team especially unhappy had been in the closing.
“So it is in every other sport, you have to hit the ball in the net. We have opportunities created, but failed to score. We had in the first half two goals earned”, said Guardiola.
“Football is a mix of various parts. Therefore, it would be wrong to see this defeat on one player or one line due.”
City state after the defeat ten points behind leader Chelsea. “That is very much. But the difference with the number two is only three points”, said the Spaniard.
“I have my players for this match, said the rankings should be forgotten and the next contest should focus. They just need to each week to do their best. At the end of the season we go all the players and also the manager evaluation and then we will see who needs to leave and who should stay.”
