The result was a solid start for the Blues and for Coleman, itâ€™s satisfying to see his name on the score-sheet.
â€śThe gaffer told me after the first half to get a bit more forward in the second,â€ť he told evertonfc.com. â€śI think the keeper made a save and thankfully it broke to me. I just made sure I kept my head down and ensured it went in.
â€śI am delighted to score because it has been a while.â€ť
While the Toffees had to settle for a point on Roberto Martinezâ€™s first competitive outing as Blues boss, the players are delighted to be back in Premier League action.
â€śEveryone was glad to get going,â€ť added Coleman. â€śIt has been a long pre-season. We knew it was going to be a tough game and I think it showed out there with the result. It was a good game.
â€śIt is always hard to take conceding a late goal. But first game of the season, away from home, a point wasnâ€™t a bad result.â€ť
