Koeman has something positive to post about on Twitter

Not many Premier League managers are regular users of Twitter, but Everton boss Ronald Koeman likes to provide updates on the social media platform.

Granted, he rarely interacts directly with fellow users, but he does offer his thoughts on results and shares some throwback pictures from his career.

On this occasion, Koeman had an upbeat message to spread after weeks of disappointing performances from his players.

The Merseyside outfit were one of the big spenders in the summer transfer window, parting with more than £100m to bring in a group of new additions, including Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane, Wayne Rooney and Gylfi Sigurdsson.

The results, though, have not reflected the club’s positive summer as they have won just a single one of their five Premier League matches.

In fact, their last three outings in the top flight have ended in defeats, the most recent of which being a 4-0 loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

On Wednesday night, a much-changed team managed to bring some light to Everton’s otherwise dreary start to the season as they booked a place in the fourth round of the EFL Cup.

Two goals from youngster Dominic Calvert-Lewin and one from former outcast Oumar Niasse gave the Toffees a 3-0 triumph over Championship outfit Sunderland at Goodison Park.

After the game, Koeman tweeted his thoughts on the match and turned his attention to Saturday’s league meeting with Bournemouth.
