Ronald Koeman praises Wayne Rooney after Brighton draw

  • Pascal Gross has covered the third longest distance of any Premier League player this season

Yet Brighton defender Bruno caught Dominic Calvert-Lewin with an elbow in the final minute and Rooney converted the resulting penalty to rescue a point for Ronald Koeman's side, whose hard start to the season continued.

"For the first time they did a good thing not to use the player in the state of fitness that he is".

Wayne Rooney's late penalty rescued a point for Koeman's men at the Amex Stadium, but it did little to gloss over what was yet another poor performance.

Knockaert had given Brighton the lead eight minutes earlier when Morgan Schneiderlin failed to clear the ball in his own box.

"We are in a hard situation, but it's one thing to come out of this and show fight like we did today".

"We know we can play better". In the last five matches, Brighton & Hove Albion have won two matches, lost two matches and the other match ended in a draw whereas the team Everton have won two matches, lost two matches and another match ended in a draw.


After their clash with Chris Hughton's side, Everton have six more games before Ireland's World Cup play-off next month.

The defender recklessly elbowed Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the neck inside the penalty area in the dying stages of the game, giving referee Michael Oliver no choice but to point to the spot.

At St Mary's, Southampton were heading for a third straight league defeat when Isaac Hayden and Ayoze Perez put Newcastle ahead in each half.

Pellegrino played for Benitez at Valencia and Liverpool before becoming a member of his coaching staff at Anfield and later at Inter Milan. This has seen them only score four goals this season.

But both times Italian striker Gabbiadini drew the home team level, the second from the penalty spot after Shane Long had been brought down by Florian Lejeune.
