Everton boss, Rafa Benitez, has revealed he was upset with their first-half in yesterday’s friendly defeat at Manchester United.
He says the 4-0 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford today has provided him with a “lot of information” ahead of the season opener against Southampton a week today.
Benitez, asked about his three half-time changes, said “some” were pre-planned but suggested others were not.
Jordan Pickford, Abdoulaye Doucoure and James Rodriguez were taken off at the break and replaced by Asmir Begovic, Fabian Delph and Anthony Gordon.
“Some of them, yes,” Benitez said, who also replaced Allan and Seamus Coleman after an hour.
“We needed to give some minutes to some players and also see them on the pitch in a specific game and level. And, also, there was a lot of information for the next game.”
