EXCLUSIVE: Everton winger Nikola Vlasic admits 'Atalanta surprised us'

New Everton winger Nikola Vlasic admits Atalanta stunned them last night.

Everton were thumped 3-0 in their opening Europa League group game by the Serie A outfit - with Vlasic conceding the visitors were taken by surprise.

Vlasic told Tribalfootball.com: "I didn't expect they were going to be so good.

"I mean, I knew they were a good team, but they really positively surprised me. They are strong, they are aggressive: we knew they weren't on our level so maybe they've put in more effort.

"They are a good team."
