Ronald Koeman delivers Twitter verdict following Everton defeat

By Dominic Toner

Ronald Koeman revealed his disappointment on Twitter after Everton slipped to an away defeat against Burnley.

The Toffees were beaten 2-1 on Saturday by relegation-tipped Burnley and missed out on the opportunity to go fifth in the Premier League table.

Sam Vokes put the hosts in front during the first-half, before Yannick Bolasie scored his first goal for the club after the break to level the score.

Scott Arfield netted a cruel 90th minute winner when he fired home with his left foot inside the box, after the ball had ricocheted off the crossbar from a long-range effort.

Everton manager Koeman believes that his side deserved to get something out of the game for their efforts.

“Football can be very unfair sometimes. We did everything to win and at least deserved a point,” Koeman wrote on his personal Twitter account.

The result leaves the Merseyside club sixth-placed in the Premier League and their recent run of negative results continues.

Everton made a blistering start to the new league season, including a four-game streak of victories against West Brom, Stoke, Sunderland and Middlesbrough.

Koeman’s side have struggled more recently and have drawn against Manchester City and Crystal Palace, as well losing to Bournemouth.

The Toffees will be hoping to turn results around in their next league match against West Ham, who have have won their last two matches 1-0.

In other Everton news, Koeman has responded to speculation that the club will make a new move for Joe Hart.
