​Koeman plays down importance of Everton clash with Tottenham

Everton boss Ronald Koeman denied that the game against Tottenham on Sunday would be a test for his side.

"Every Premier League game is a test and the one on Sunday is not more than the first game of the season," he said.

"We are stronger than we were in the first game, but Tottenham are stronger too. It's not a test.

"We like to do high pressing, they [Spurs] have very good players between the lines, like Eriksen, Alli and their offensive full-backs. But we also have offensive full-backs. They [Spurs] try to bring young players through the team and I try to do that too."
