Premier League updates from Goodison Park

Pick your Swansea XI: Who should Paul Clement select?

Everton host Stoke on Saturday to kick off their league campaign before also hosting Hajduk Split in their Europa League play-off next Thursday.

The Toffees' highest profile signing was Wayne Rooney, who grew up an Everton fan and started his professional career with the club.

But Koeman reflected on the top sides' far superior attack forces, saying: "Compare that to the big teams and what they have on the bench - or even in the stands - it is a big difference to Everton".

Bournemouth conceded 67 goals last season, but the arrivals of Ake and goalkeeper Asmir Begovic from Stamford Bridge should improve their solidity as Howe looks to build on last season's impressive ninth-place finish.

"It is hard still because we really have one striker".

The same plane is also scheduled to fly over where Trump is vacationing in Bedminster, NJ between 5 pm and 6 pm, CNN said. Capitol Police issued an alert of the Washington overfly between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Koeman says he will only be able to make a true assessment of his team after they complete their transfer business.

After Diego Costa fell out of Antonio Conte's plans, the champions paid Real Madrid a reported £70million to sign Alvaro Morata, while United parted with £75million to buy Romelu Lukaku from Everton. "We can improve and spend money but everyone can improve and is spending money", he explained.

Lukaku hit 25 league goals for Everton last season and, with supply coming from the likes of Juan Mata and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, the Belgian should record a similar tally.

Expectations have raised this summer with the amount of money spent at Goodison Park but Koeman knows he must secure his remaining targets if his side are to push into the elite in the Premier League.

"When I came here of course it was a different situation", said Koeman.

While they were not life-threatening, she revealed that a number of people had been brought home to the USA as a result. One official told the Associated Press news agency that it could be potentially permanent hearing loss.

"We have brought some players in like Klaassen and Sandro Ramirez and we would like to bring some more in".

Everton will begin their Premier League campaign this Saturday at home against Stoke City, and Koeman expects it to be a tough game. It is always better to start at home than away.

Mark Hughes has warned his Stoke side not to get dazzled in the spotlight of the Rooney show.

"It's one that's frustrated a lot of people, not least myself, but now it's likely to get done unless there's any last-minute hitches, but we don't anticipate any".
