Everton Boss is frustrated to start ahead of Leicester City clash”

Brian Sorensen, speaking to the media ahead of Everton’s visit to King Power Stadium on Sunday, appeared rueful while discussing the Toffees’ opening day setback to Brighton.

After conceding twice in the first fifteen minutes, Megan Finnigan’s 65th-minute strike was insufficient for Everton, who are now ‘trying to focus on the positives,’ according to Sorensen.


He admits that the club’s start to the Barclays Women’s Super League season was ‘frustrating,’ but observes that ‘when we got into the game, we were the better team.’

His new summer additions were also chastised, with Karoline Olesen and Martina Piemonte both’slow to get going in the first fifteen

minutes.’ Both signed two-year contracts on Merseyside after joining from Fortuna Hjrring and AC Milan, respectively.

Sorensen admits that his ‘team is incredibly young,’ but he doesn’t know ‘whether that had a factor or not’ in the opening-day loss. However, Everton manager David Moyes also stated that the club “has a lot of national team players who have been away.”

Toni Duggan’s return to match action is also ahead of schedule, according to Sorensen, who added,’she’s been working extremely hard and it’s fantastic to see her back.’

But, ahead of the trip to Leicester City, Sorensen urged fans not to be discouraged by the defeat at Brighton. When asked if it was too soon to read too much into the results thus far, he responded simply, ‘First weekend, we see [upsets] every year.’


He argues that the club is ‘comfortable,’ and that, given the competitive nature of the league this season, ‘any given day, you may lose to all teams and also win against all teams.’

Leicester City v Everton kicks off at King Power Stadium at 3pm on Sunday, October
