Ronald Koeman took to Twitter on Saturday afternoon following his first league defeat in charge of Everton against Bournemouth.
A decisive first-half Junior Stanislas strike ensured that the Cherries earned some vital three points at home, while also earning just their second clean sheet of the new campaign in a 1-0 victory.
The Dutch manager, who took over the Toffees from Southampton in the summer posted a message via his personal Twitter account expressing his disappointment, but approved of the second-half display from his side.
In the 2half we showed how you need to start the game! Still disappointed our first defeat !

The league defeat comes as a second loss in a week for the Toffees after they also suffered a shock 2-0 defeat against Championship side Norwich in the EFL Cup.
They will be keen to ensure that a run of losses doesn’t continue with the side currently sat in fifth place with 13 points from their opening six fixtures.
The Toffees are looking to improve on a disappointing 11th placed finish in the league from the last campaign, which ultimately saw former manager Roberto Martinez sacked from his Goodison Park role.
They have added five senior players to the squad from last season which includes Yannick Bolasie, Ashley Williams and Maarten Stekelenburg, who bring plenty of Premier League experience to the squad.
