Ronald Koeman offers mixed reaction on Twitter to Everton's Europa League win

Everton defeated Hajduk Split 2-0 on Thursday evening.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has taken to Twitter to send a message to supporters after the club's 2-0 Europa League play-off victory over Hajduk Split on Thursday night.

The Toffees went into the game having beaten Stoke City 1-0 at Goodison Park, but it was back to the Europa League on Thursday, as Koeman looked to take a giant step towards the group stage of the competition having knocked out Slovakia's Ruzomberok in the last round.

Everton were largely expected to coast past Hajduk Split of Croatia, and that proved to be the case with a superb first half display, as Michael Keane scored his first goal for the club since signing from Burnley over the summer, rising to head home Leighton Baines' cross after a strong run from the left back.

The Toffees made it 2-0 before the break as Davy Klaassen stole possession inside the Hajduk half, picking out Wayne Rooney on the edge of the box, and he played a superb pass for Idrissa Gueye, who broke into the box and slid the ball into the net.

Everton did take their foot off the gas in the second half, with the game tied up, and they will now hope to get through the second leg in Croatia without any issues having put themselves in a strong position already.

However, manager Koeman isn't entirely happy with the night. The Dutchman took to Twitter after the game to send a message to fans, and started by saying that he was 'really happy' with the first half display.

Koeman did though go on to say that he wasn't happy with the performance after the break, but ended on a positive by pointing out that Everton have now kept four clean sheets in a row in competitive games this season.

Everton now move on to Monday's trip to face Manchester City in the Premier League, where Koeman will be hoping to spring a surprise - and he will have new signing Gylfi Sigurdsson available following his move from Swansea City, and Koeman will certainly be pleased that his new-look Everton side are already picking up points and clean sheets.

What did you think of Everton's display against Hajduk Split?
