Seamus Coleman praises 'demanding' Everton boss Marco Silva

It has been all change at Everton since Marco Silva has joined the club, with the former Hull City manager completely changing the style of play to that of Sam Allardyce in the second half of last season.

Silva continued: "It is important for him".

The Brazilian added to his two-goal salvo at Molineux last weekend with a powerful header that put the Blues 2-0 up and coasting with half an hour gone at Goodison Park.

Vardy now faces a three-match ban although Puel believes the striker - who signed a new four-year deal earlier in the month - was unfortunate to be given his marching orders by referee Mike Dean.

Although his strike partner halved the deficit and remained a nuisance throughout, the same could not be said for Austin - who was wasteful and struggled for large periods in a match where Mark Hughes needed his presence in the final third to pay dividends.

"He was enthusiastic and it is a pity".

"I'm sure they will be behind us every time and will support our players, and with them behind us and with them supporting our team, we will be stronger, for sure".

Class is something which can not be bought", said Guardiola when asked about the Portuguese tactician's comments. Of De Gea's continuing importance to United , the Portuguese coach said: "I wouldn't swap him for anyone".

Having wasted a couple of clear chances in the first half, Ings finally struck nine minutes after the break.

"Their keeper should have been sent off for his challenge on Danny".

"I am so exhausted to talk about if some players aren't happy or some players want to leave".

"I can say with all pride that I've done a fantastic job at Everton from the position that we were in - 8th was a dream finish when I got there".

From a player of his quality and capabilities, this was a disappointing showing and one you'd hope doesn't reflect too poorly on Southampton's forward options this term - not least as he's expected to be pivotal in their success.

West Ham, meanwhile, slipped to a 2-1 home defeat to Bournemouth.

The second half was made an unnecessarily nervy affair, however, by the concession of a goal eight minutes into the second half, one which owed to horrendous defending that allowed Danny Ings to convert unmarked from in front of goal.
