He watched his side run out 3-1 losers at Goodison Park but said that the team failed to do things together in order to break City down.
He said, “Manchester City are a top quality team, you have to admire a team that especially in the first half were too good for you. As much as the lads tried it was something we couldn’t cope with.
“The real turning point was when we should’ve scored with Bolasie and gone 1-1 and they scored.
“It was very difficult when they scored, I thought Silva was offside for one of the goals but what can you do.
“We fought, battled, scored and tried to go until the very end. All their 11 are fantastic in that system and that’s why they are so far ahead.
“We organised a little, but the main message was ‘If you’re going to press, do it together, if you drop off, do it together.
“That was part of the trouble in the first half, where individual members of the front line pressed and with City’s quality they can pass through you.
“We did as much as we could, tried as much as we could and I think that has been the same for every team bar Liverpool.”
