Ronald Koeman: Valencia was much worse than Everton 'crisis'

Oumar Niasse came off the bench to be Everton's unlikely match-winner on Saturday, scoring twice to beat Bournemouth 2-1 and end his team's run of four straight losses in the English Premier League.

"I am always enjoying football", smiled the Dutchman.

"I think the quality that they've recruited, they're a very good football team, they've got some really good footballers in their team".

Signed for £13m four years ago from Wigan Athletic, Newcastle United were among the clubs believed to be interested in McCarthy's services before the close of the transfer window, though local reports suggested no suitor matched Everton's £25m valuation of the Scottish-born player. But, when looking back at this game, the same problems arise that have plagued the team since their first competitive games in the Europa League qualifiers. Of all the No10s at Koeman's disposal it seemed a trifle odd to choose Davy Klaassen for the central role. It was the sort of chance the veteran goalscorer usually snaps up with relish, though on this occasion his attempt only found Pickford's outstretched leg and Everton breathed again.

The striker was shunned by Ronald Koeman when he took over at Everton last summer and was demoted to work with the Under 23 side.

"We are going to have to stay together and be positive and just keep working", he told evertontv. Maybe this win will convince Koeman to stick to four at the back for some time. That needs time. Let's make the next step.

This game should put this desire to bed.

Niasse, who had come on for Calvert-Lewin, then sealed Everton's fourth-round spot with a flicked finish, having been set up by Tom Davies. They are now 18th in the Premier League and look far from challenging for a top 4 spot and for all the money they've spent, they could be struggling to secure a Europa League spot.

Defeat leaves Bournemouth second-bottom with just three points from six games so far but Howe has backed his players to start converting their good performances into points soon.

He wasn't even given a locker at Finch Farm, the club's training ground.

The main talking point before Niasse's brilliant cameo was Simon Francis' aerial challenge on Wayne Rooney, leaving the former England captain with a bloodied left eye after being caught with an arm in the penalty area.
