Everton boss Ronald Koeman says that the Blues should have left Goodison Park tonight with an even bigger win over Hadjuk Split.
His side ran out 2-0 winners thanks to first half goals from Michael Keane and Idrissa Gana Gueye but Koeman says that the Blues wanted a much better result.
“I thought we did very well in the first half – we played with high tempo and made chances to score,” he said.
“The second half was about controlling the game and going for a better result, but we didn’t manage to do that and now next week will be difficult.
“In my opinion, we lost the opportunity to score more goals in the second half, because we dropped the tempo. We gave them the belief to dominate the game. We were dangerous in a few moments, but not like in the first half. That was about us – and I’m not happy about the second half.
“It’s always good to have a clean sheet when you’re playing the first leg at home and 2-0 is a good result, but you always like to reach the maximum and that today was more goals.”
