Hughton reels from Rooney intervention

If Ronald Koeman was in any doubt that he is under pressure then a tweet from the Mayor of Liverpool appeared to sum up the feelings of many Everton supporters after the dismal draw away to Brighton and Hove Albion.

With his team looking to be on the end of a defeat after an 82nd minute goal from Anthony Knockaert, Everton were awarded a penalty.

He did not dispute Everton's penalty - when Bruno elbowed Calvert-Lewin - but claimed they should have had one of their own in the first half when Michael Keane slid in to block Lewis Dunk's rebound.

The tie leaves Koeman's team in 16place, with a Europa League tie on Thursday against Olympique Lyonnais, before they host Arsenal.

Brighton had some chances on either side of the interval but were unable score, thanks to an inspired Jordan Pickford and some dogged Everton defence.

'At least it's one point because that's what we deserve'.

In the first half alone Rooney did more than he'd done all season.

However, Koeman's new-look side has amassed just eight points from as many games - and it would have been seven if it weren't for a moment of madness from Brighton captain Bruno.

- Wayne Rooney has now scored against 36 of the 39 different clubs he's faced in the Premier League - only Frank Lampard (39), Andrew Cole (38) and Alan Shearer (37) have scored against more in the competition (Jermain Defoe also 36).

Brighton boss Chris Hughton would have been happy for the snoozefest to resume after Albion's goal.

Everton's result at Brighton could have been much worse, if Wayne Rooney did not rescue a point for the Toffees in the last minute.

While Koeman will be relieved to avoid a fifth defeat in Everton's last six Premier League games, the Toffees once again looked poor for long periods and remain without an away win since January. "Taking penalties is not the most hard job but at this moment it's totally different", he said.
