Everton boss Ronald Koeman says that a poor first half let his side down as the lost 2-0 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues set up with three at the back for the second season at Stamford Bridge, but conceded three less goals than last term – although that was as positive as you can get about a poor performance all-round.
Koeman, though, says that he thought the second half was better and admits that he needs to make at least two more signings before the deadline on Thursday.
“I am disappointed with the first half because our ball possession was poor,” he said.
“We did not have enough movement to give options.
“Against Chelsea, you need to be at your best to get a result and we weren’t. The second half was better but we lost it in the first.
“We need at least two more players – a striker is most important.”
