Everton manager Ronald Koeman has told the Liverpool Echo that he is leaving transfer window plans to Steve Walsh after another defeat for the Toffees.

After losing 2-0 at Chelsea, Koeman would have hoped to see a response from his players after the international break – but it hasn't gone to plan for Everton.

3-0 defeats at home to Tottenham and at Atalanta left Koeman under increasing pressure as Everton travelled to Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

Rather than show a fightback, Everton's fortunes actually worsened with a 4-0 defeat, as Antonio Valencia, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial all found the net.

The Toffees continue to look shaky at the back and ineffective going forward, with some fans calling for Koeman's head after a torrid start to the new season.

A summer of spending makes the poor results so much harder to swallow, as the Toffees invested in Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane, Davy Klaassen, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Nikola Vlasic, Wayne Rooney and Sandro Ramirez, with ambitions of pushing for a top six place.

However, that couldn't look further away right now, and Everton are ultimately paying the price for not adding enough pace to their side, as well as not replacing Lukaku following his move to Manchester United.

Some fans already looking towards the January transfer window, and Koeman was even asked about the matter after Sunday's result, with the Dutchman suggesting to the Liverpool Echo that it was somewhat out of his hands, with Director of Football Steve Walsh taking charge of transfers whilst Koeman words on turning around performances on the pitch.

“We have Steve in the club for the long term,” Koeman said. ”Of course, we like to improve in what we need. I am busy to turn around what happened in the moment. That is my priority,” he added.
