We Were The Weaker Team – Everton Manager Ronald Koeman Says After Tottenham Defeat

Everton Manager Ronald Koeman has said that his team was too nice and too weak after losing 3-0 at home to Tottenham. The hosts began well but faded quickly against Mauricio Pochettino's side, with Harry Kane scoring twice in an emphatic away win.
Kane's second of the afternoon less than a minute into the second half killed Everton off and Koeman concedes his team were not good enough.
He said “I hope we will take some lessons out of this afternoon. I think we started the game well but after the lucky first goal we lost domination and we lost control of the game. It was difficult with Tottenham's diamond in midfield. We had problems controlling that. The second goal made it even more difficult and how we started after half-time was really bad. The second half is something to learn from because there were several situations when I think we were too nice, too weak. You need to be more aggressive. You saw the difference in quality but you also saw the difference in confidence - one team growing in confidence, a really good side and difficult to control. The other side - Everton - was without any confidence. When it's like that, football is really difficult.”
