Koeman: We showed two faces, but I hate the first one!

Koeman Everton managerEverton boss Ronald Koeman says that his team showed two faces this evening in the win over Arsenal, saying that he hates the first one.

The Blues were over cautious and timid in the opening twenty minutes and fell behind to a deflected free kick but came back to show a much more palatable face as they rallied and came back to beat the Gunners 2-1.

“If you start how we start today then you don’t win any game in the Premier League,” said Koeman.

“It was really poor and very nervous, playing every ball back instead of forwards and that was not the team that we expected.

“Ok, I can understand a lack of confidence but if we fight for every ball and be aggressive then you see the reaction of the crowd which makes it really difficult to win against Everton.

“We showed that after twenty minutes we went face to face which is what you need to do against teams like Arsenal who like to have a lot of the ball.

“With a lot of aggression you can make it difficult.

“We showed two faces and the first face I hate because that’s all about being nervous and not doing what you need to do.

“We showed after twenty minutes how we need to play and it’s about the commitment and you see the reaction of the crowd if you go for it.

“We know we are very strong at home, still unbeaten and we know the importance of the Merseyside derby but if we play the way we did tonight then we’ll get a good result.”
