Koeman: Toffees were poor against West Ham

Ronald Koeman

Everton manager Ronald Koeman admitted his team were well below par in Saturday’s disappointing 0-0 draw with West Ham.

There were no goals and few chances at the London Stadium, and the Dutchman says they "were not the team we can be".

"It wasn’t a good day," Koeman said. "West Ham didn’t create a lot, and it wasn’t a football game to enjoy.

"Maybe a point and a clean sheet are positives but after that they are no more. I was disappointed with the performance – it was far from the level that we have shown the whole season.

"Today was poor, I can’t say any differently. It can happen, but the problem was that there was a slow start to the game.

"We didn’t have the intensity that we need to play to our highest football level. It took so much time to find free players in the midfield."
