Bolasie hadn’t started a first team game since picking up an injury in the game against Manchester United at Goodison Park in December 2016, and said that he wasn’t at his best yesterday.
“It was very disappointing,” he added. “At home, especially, you want to show the fans what you’ve really got but today wasn’t the best.
“I thought the first half was okay but then the second half we dropped off a little bit and probably showed them a little bit too much respect in a way. It’s a lesson we have to learn from. It’s not the best way to start the new year but we’ve got games coming thick and fast so we have to concentrate on the next thing coming.
“There were some counter-attacks we had and when I get my match fitness I will probably be able to do that at a higher intensity and more often for the team. I think that would have been beneficial.
“But I’ve just come back from an injury and being out for a year, so I’m happy to be back out on the pitch.”
