Wayne Rooney said Everton have “gone back to basics” after they came from behind against Swansea City to continue their revival under Sam Allardyce.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin turned home the rebound from Rooney’s saved penalty to restore parity for the Toffees, after Leroy Fer had lost his marker from a corner to open the scoring for Swansea at the far post.

Gylfi Sigurdsson’s exquisite long-range strike against his former club put Everton ahead after the break, before Rooney scored with his second penalty attempt of the evening when Martin Olsson was adjudged to have fouled Jonjoe Kenny.


“I think the manager has got us back to basics,” said Rooney. “If we went a goal down we had a feeling we wouldn’t get back in the game earlier in the season. We are much more solid.

“We didn’t play as well as we can do but we showed great character. Four weeks ago we would have lost that game. Hopefully over the Christmas period we can pick up a few more wins.”
