Wayne Rooney: It does not get much better than this

Koeman won't let Barkley leave Everton on the cheap

Brighton ‘ready to move to Oumar Niasse with Everton keen to offload striker

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has revealed that his club are keen to demonstrate that they have big ambitions on the pitch this season.

In charge of proceedings was referee Neil Swarbrick.

Rooney last scored a goal for Everton at Goodison on March 13, 2004 when he claimed the victor against Portsmouth.

Xherdan Shaqiri did find time to unleash one last-gasp shot that seemed destined to snatch Stoke a point but Pickford proved to be Everton's saviour, flying to his left to tip the goal-bound attempt wide and seal the points. The Spaniards turned and played DCL into space for the inch ideal cross for Wayne Rooney to plant his header beyond the reach of the despairing Butland.

The second half started with more of the same, as the Potters were stung into action by being undeservedly behind.

Stoke are now yet to win back-to-back away games in the Premier League since October 2015.

The introduction of Peter Crouch for the anonymous Saido Berahino gave Stoke a presence and menace they had previously lacked and it needed several last-ditch interventions by Everton to preserve their clean sheet.

Everton are a continual top-half Premier League club, but can not seem to break into the top four.

Koeman said: "We know it is a tough start but it is all about, in 38 games, getting the points".

"On a personal level scoring the winning goal at Goodison Park is a special moment".

If he produces performances like today's man-of-the-match showing, it won't be long until we see Rooney lead out the Three Lions once again - on the eve of a World Cup year.

Koeman added: "I still believe he will make the move".

"Today a good Stoke team made it hard but it's important you win".

"We have brought some players in like Klaassen and Sandro Ramirez and we would like to bring some more in".
