Everton take on Middlesbrough on Saturday 17th September, 2016, with kickoff at 17:30. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BT Sport 1.
It wasn’t widely reported in the press, but while Everton were trying to throw money at every single player in Europe this summer, the only deal they actually succeeded in pushing through that they really wanted was that for manager Ronald Koeman. The former Saints boss, who have never won a major title, is being paid about the same as Conte and Klopp, and that speaks of a club desperate to win at any cost.
Sadly for Everton, and Manchester United, winning takes more than just lots of money, and so far this term they’ve not really looked that much improved after last year.
