Everton boss Koeman confirms plans to recall Rooney for Brighton

Brighton will be boosted by the availability of Davy Propper for their Sunday clash with Everton

Wayne Rooney's last-gasp equaliser from the penalty spot in Everton's 1-1 draw at Brighton and Hove Albion means the ex-England captain has now scored against 36 different Premier League clubs.

Speaking ahead of Everton's Premier League tie with Brighton this weekend, Koeman dismissed the links, while also giving his opinions on what he feels the current problems are surrounding the Dutch national team.

The draw moves both teams on to eight points and lifts them one place in the table, Brighton to 14th and Everton to 16th.

"The commitment of the players and the belief was good".

He said: "Taking penalties is not the most hard job but, at that moment, if your team needs points and you keep calm then that is experience and that is world-class".

"At least we got one point, a point well deserved".

Appeals court rules against Elliott, clears way for suspension

Brighton's livewire sub Jose Izquierdo sparked the late drama when his drive rebounded into the path of Knockaert, who smashed it past Jordan Pickford to give the hosts the lead.

The defender recklessly elbowed Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the neck inside the penalty area in the dying stages of the game, giving referee Michael Oliver no choice but to point to the spot.

Koeman was largely praised for the work that he did while manager of Southampton and also earned good reviews for the work that he did with the Toffees last season.

Pellegrino played for Benitez at Valencia and Liverpool before becoming a member of his coaching staff at Anfield and later at Inter Milan.

The Dutchman said: "Sometimes an global break is good for everybody and of course Gylfi qualifying for the World Cup, that gives always a good boost to the player and that's important that they come back with a lot of positives".

Isaac Hayden gave Newcastle the lead in the 20th minute as he showed fine technique to direct the bouncing ball into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.
