Everton fans react on Twitter to midfielder's poor performance: "Not good enough"

Striker Wayne Rooney will receive the warm welcome he deserves as a Manchester United "legend" when he returns with Everton to Old Trafford, manager Jose Mourinho said on Friday.

Rooney spent 13 years with United, becoming the club's all-time record goalscorer in January of this year he netted his 250th in United colours.

Rio Ferdinand has told Romelu Lukaku to emulate Chelsea legend Didier Drogba by scoring "big goals in big games" for Manchester United.

"I hope the stadium will show him the respect he deserves before and after the match, not during the match", the United boss added.

"Sometimes in this country, the word legend comes too easily". "We have more than 11 players available, so we can make some rotations", the Dutchman said. "He's one of the players who needs to react and bring the level of the players we expect from players like Wayne".

It was more of the same from Atalanta in the second half, minus the goals, with Andrea Petagna hitting the woodwork after being set up by former Middlesbrough midfielder Marten de Roon. A 2-2 draw against a determined Stoke City last weekend was the only blip in their season so far.

Asked whether his own job might be under pressure, Koeman said he knew modern-day soccer was "all about winning and results". But there are good players more than ready to play.

Everton were handed an extremely hard start to the domestic campaign but performances haven't been up to the standard expected of a team that is hoping to compete near the top of the Premier League table.

"It's easy to criticise the players, the team, and individual mistakes, but finally, the team was not prepared judging by what I saw in the first half".

"After this press conference, I will have a meeting with the players".

"I'm not going to analyse in that perspective, " he said.

Koeman, who presided over an expensive influx of new faces over the close-season, shouldered the responsibility for the performance despite suggesting his team needed to display more fight. We had a bad run last season, we came out of that, and I have confidence we can get out of this run.

"You can always complain about the young talent, 18 [and] 19-year-olds but it's time for the experienced players to stand up".
