Ronald Koeman's position at Everton questioned by mayor of Liverpool

Ronald Koeman's position at Everton questioned by mayor of Liverpool”

The Toffees needed a last-minute penalty from Wayne Rooney to rescue a 1-1 draw at Brighton on Sunday.

Everton had the chance to win it late into injury time, only to be denied all three points by Brighton goalkeeper Mat Ryan, but Koeman believes his side's luck will change as a long as they stay committed.

Time will tell if a revival materialises from their comeback on the south coast, but they will need more than just luck to get back on track.

"We work hard and we fight, but we know it's a difficult competition. To come away with a point isn't what we came here for but I think we've got to build on the subs coming on and everyone chipping in at the end to make sure we came away with something", said Jagielka. We're expected to do better and we want to do better.

With five goals in their first eight games, only bottom of the table Crystal Palace (two) and Bournemouth (3) in 19th have scored fewer goals than Everton this season.

But, with the clock ticking down, Seagulls defender Bruno elbowed Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the area as a free-kick was floated in. They showed no tangible signs of an upturn in form as their terrible start to the season continued. "We can be better and hopefully we will be better but we have to defend better".

Much was made of Everton's summer spending spree, which saw eight new first-team players arrive at Goodison Park, but the glaring omission from the Toffees' recruitment drive was a replacement for Romelu Lukaku.
