Premier League updates from Goodison Park

Wayne Rooney was the star of the show on his return to Everton

Ronald Koeman has told Ross Barkley's suitors - including Tottenham - that Everton will not accept a below-market offer for the England global near the end of the transfer window. And midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has warned it will take time for a new look side to gel and justify on the pitch the anticipation levels off it.

"It is hard to replace Romelu Lukaku", he said in Thursday's press conference.

Only this summer, Wayne Rooney has returned to the Goodison Park, and former Barcelona forward Sandro Ramirez from Malaga also. His side face Stoke on Saturday with the Dutch coach welcoming greater prospects, but with a warning his rebuilding process is incomplete.

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.

Everton improved after the break but issues with fluidity and cohesion remained for Koeman's new-look side, with Jordan Pickford forced into an outstanding save to deny Xherdan Shaqiri a last-gasp Stoke equaliser. Their only opening-match victory in the last nine seasons came in 2012-13, when they beat Manchester United 1-0 at Goodison Park.

Yannick Bolasie and Ramiro Funes Mori continue to recover from long term injuries while Aaron Lennon is still doubtful after being held out of the Europa League qualifier last week. The additions should make the team much stronger than before.

"They are notoriously slow starters though, and I don't see that changing". There is always a turnover of players at this stage and you don't know until you start playing where you are.

Stoke manager Mark Hughes: "Everyone is fed up of friendlies, and we just all want the season to start now".

Only Frank Lampard and Alan Shearer (8) have scored more goals on Premier League opening day than Rooney (7).
