“The start of the season is always difficult because you are trying to find the rhythm of your game,” he said.
Rooney was hoping that Ronald Koeman’s team can continue to start positive in the first game.
“We have a couple of tough games going on so it’s important to get a good start,” Rooney said.
In the next game, Everton will play host Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Monday (21/08/2017).
