Koeman not only believes that Rooney fits perfectly into his plans at Everton, but he also thinks he is far from the faded force that many felt he was becoming at United. "If not, he is a player of Everton and if he shows to me he is one of the best then it is possible he can start, like everyone else".
Central defender Ahmed Hegazi headed the only goal at the Hawthorns while another newcomer, Jay Rodriguez, kept Bournemouth goalkeeper Asmir Begovic busy in the first half.

Stoke could complete the signing of Bruno Martins Indi before the game but it will not be done in time for him to feature. "We have the two Hajduk Split games between away games at City and Chelsea but we have enough players, we have good players, and we like the challenge". We've just got to make sure we don't get wrapped up in that.
