Everton striker Wayne Rooney says that his are still trying to find their feet as they stumble through the opening part of the season with another poor result in Europe.
The Blues were held to a 2-2 draw by 10-man Cypriots Apollon Limassol but Rooney says that he wants his side to progress from the upturn in results in the Premier League.
He said, “It is hard to take.
“We were the better team but the goals were sloppy from our point of view.
“They are a good team. We know their strengths and there’s no easy games in Europe. Some of the decisions this season we haven’t got, we’re picking up injuries and knocks from not being protected enough.
“We need that goal to see the game off. Up until we got the goal we were not playing as well as we can and we are still finding our feet. It is two wins and a draw in the past three games and we need to keep progressing and picking up points.”
