Ronald Koeman has stated that he is “happy” that Everton recorded a clean sheet during their draw against Middlesbrough on Saturday.

The former Barcelona man explained that the conditions at the Riverside Stadium were “tough” as his team extend their unbeaten run to eight games.

The Toffees had a number of good chances to find the back of the net but were denied by Boro goalkeeper Victor Valdes.

During their previous match, Koeman’s side had scored six goals, with striker Romelu Lukaku netting four as they picked up an entertaining 6-3 win over Bournemouth at home.

After they secured a point on the road, Koeman had this message to supporters as posted on his personal Twitter account.

“Tough conditions today, but we had a couple of good chances to score,” said Koeman. “Happy to secure another clean sheet.”

At this moment in time, Koeman’s side remain in seventh, seven points behind sixth-placed Manchester United and four points ahead of eighth-placed West Brom.

The Merseyside club have won 11 of their 25 games this season, drawing eight and losing six, including picking up impressive wins against the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City.

Their next Premier League game will be against rock-bottom Sunderland who were thrashed 4-0 at home to Southampton on the same day.

David Moyes is set to come up against his former club as his current team have only won five matches all season, losing 16 of those games.
