Everton boss Koeman hits back at Jose Mourinho

De Gea and Rooney put loyalties aside midway through Man Utd v Everton

Just five games into the season he's improved on last term's contribution.

"I think Wayne has still a lot of things to say in football and I wish him the best for the rest of the season". "It was probably our best performance of the season".

They were unfortunate to lose by four goals, though, with a spirited second-half performance worth more at least a point.

After 20 minutes he slid a left-foot shot wide of the post and in the second half he shot straight at United keeper David de Gea from close range, while Gylfi Sigurdsson was also denied by the Spaniard.

Although United at times rode their luck and former skipper Wayne Rooney wasted two chances to mark his Old Trafford return with a goal, Mourinho was impressed by his side's output.

And the player could be in line for more action in the coming weeks after Mourinho praised his impact when stepping off the bench during United's 4-0 victory over Everton on Sunday.

"Because I heard the US president speak: He presents himself as a person who is pro-life". What they were doing, he said, was saying, "This is my treasure".

Speaking after the game, Mourinho believes Rooney will eventually end up back at Manchester United.

The 31-year-old was greeted warmly by the home fans as he played his first game against the club since returning to Everton in July. The ball goes there and you have to be ready for action it is even more hard. "So it's even more hard and even more important", the Portuguese coach added about De Gea.

"Sorry, if there is anybody in this room and outside who sees something realistic, what is possible for this Everton, please come on...be realistic, a little bit realistic about Everton".

Former Toffee Romelu Lukaku played in Henrikh Mkhitaryan after seizing on an error by Ashley Williams. "Strikers always like to score goals".

Mourinho and Guardiola enjoyed several tussles at the top of the league table during their respective spells at Real Madrid and Barcelona, but the Portuguese claimed that he took more interest in the results of rivals who failed to win this weekend. My pressure is for the tactical plan, for the organisation of the team, and he knew that I was totally happy with him, so no reason to lose any confidence.
