What they said

Ronald Koeman

"For every football club it is really important to be part of Europe. Everton was out of it for many years but we are back and it is great for the players and staff – and also for the fans.

"Let's hope for a good game and that the journey will take us a long way in European football.

“If you start a competition you want to win it. But it is a long way to go and our first focus is on Atalanta. You have to take it step by step.

“You can rotate for several reasons but, like always, we will start with a strong team. A football match can be tactical, or physical. It is all about the intention of both teams.

“We will try to dominate the game and to play football. You have to know the right time to play and when to be tactical.

“But our intention is to play offensive football, to create opportunities to score – and we need to counter the strengths of Atalanta.”
