Rooney grabs victor on Everton homecoming

Rooney grabs victor on Everton homecoming

Everton have gone through a massive rebuilding project under Ronald Koeman this summer.

Pickford's save preserved a clean sheet on his first Premier League appearance for Everton, a feat the 23-year-old also achieved on competitive debut in the Europa League.

We know it's going to be challenging competing on four fronts but the manager has made some great signings, bringing in the likes of Davy Klaassen, Michael Keane, Jordan Pickford and Sandro Ramirez, meaning the competition to make the starting XI is going to be intense. "He is an important player and he is one of the team that will start this Saturday".

That will help them this season and teams will need to be on the money to knock them off. To make things a bit more complicated for Stoke, they also struggled on the road last season. The Blues started the match poorly, and the tactical setup was unusual at best.

Rooney can play a massive role this season having Everton making every team they come up against be at their best to get the points.

Applebee's to close more than 100 locations
The company says that the "aggressive" closures are part of its plan to simplify operations, while elevating the guest experience. The Tribune spoke with a member of the management team at the Cullman Applebee's , located at 2106 Cherokee Ave.

"We kept on pushing and over the course of 90 minutes, Everton didn't really have too many clear cut chances so we restricted a very good side who spent a lot of money and have got a lot of quality".

The 31-year-old, who left the club for Manchester United in 2004, found space in the area to head a Dominic Calvert-Lewin cross past Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland before the break. But Koeman believes his rivals have gotten even stronger than last season.

Stoke are embarking on their 10th consecutive Premier League season.

The glow from Rooney's 199th Premier League goal was nearly erased when Fletcher went close to equalising after half-time with a stinging strike.

Mark Hughes hasn't won any of his past six Premier League fixtures on the opening weekend (D2, L4), a run which covers three clubs: Fulham, QPR and Stoke. He last scored in West Brom's 3-2 home victory over Crystal Palace in February 2016.
