2 – But Koeman not playing mind games with fitness jibe
The Dutchman also said that his team were only at “70 per cent” physically after having an extended summer break.
Some questioned if this was a clever mind game from Koeman to trick Tottenham into thinking his side might not be up to it.
It looked that way as Everton came out of the blocks quickly but they faded dramatically in the second half as their fitness levels became evident.
Work to be done on that front but when they are at full flight not many will be able to live with them.
