Ronald Koeman Hails Oumar Niasse After Bournemouth Heroics


Ronald Koeman says he is "not surprised" by how Oumar Niasse has turned his Everton career around.

Stanislas has scored four times in seven meetings with the Merseysiders, including a 1-0 victory at the Vitality Stadium last season.

Liverpool - Oumar Niasse came in from the cold to lift Everton as the Senegal forward's second-half brace clinched a 2-1 win over Bournemouth on Saturday. "It is a huge frustration because we felt in control second half but at 1-0 there is always an opportunity for Everton to come back and that is what happened".

There were few chances in the opening 45 minutes but just after the break Norway worldwide King latched on to a pass from Charlie Daniels before driving diagonally towards the penalty area and rifling the ball home.

Wayne Rooney has two goals and one assist in his last three PL appearances against the Cherries.

It was clear by half-time that both sides were short of attacking ideas. Of these four, only Holgate and Calvert-Lewin started, and it took the other three to come off the bench to inspire Everton's comeback.


Josh King scores the opener with a low shot past Jordan Pickford in Everton's goal.

Ex-Everton midfielder Dan Gosling could be the player to miss out if Howe chooses to persevere with the new system.

Barry did appear for the Toffees in the Europa League earlier this season, but with Morgan Schneiderlin and Idrissa Gueye ahead of him in the pecking order his chances of game-time were always going to be few and far between - though his departure was still enough to draw the wrath of Koeman. If that was bad, things almost got worse two minutes later when King ran through the middle to free Defoe for a one-on-one with Pickford.

Atkinson also took charge of Manchester United's opening day victory over West Ham - and has issued five cautions across his two matches.

Koeman threw on Niasse and Davies for the frankly ineffective Rooney and Klaassen, and though the effect was not immediate the gamble ultimately paid off.

"You have to live with that and be the nicest person you can be, work hard, be a professional and, even if you're under-18, under-23 or with the first team, you have to work hard". Davies was again the provider as his deflected cross looped to the back post where Niasse's header was initially saved by Asmir Begovic but he swivelled the loose ball home before wheeling away in delight in front of the Gwladys Street End.
