Lyon win ups pressure on Everton boss Koeman

Nabil Fekir

Lyon added to the pressure on Everton manager Ronald Koeman by winning at Goodison Park to leave the Toffees bottom of Europa League Group E.

Koeman's side remain without a victory in the group stage, and have not won for four games in all competitions.

Ashley Williams looked to have earned them a draw just moments after sparking a scuffle, but Bertrand Traore flicked in a clever winner for the French side.

Nabil Fekir had put the visitors ahead with an early penalty.

There were signs of improvement from the underperforming Toffees in a heated clash on Merseyside, with substitute Gylfi Sigurdsson striking the post from a free-kick that would have given them the lead.

But defeat leaves Koeman's team four points behind second-placed Lyon, with a crucial trip to France to come in November.
