Atalanta opened their Europa League campaign with a 3-0 victory over Everton in the reverse fixture in September.

However, Everton were hammered 5-1 in front of their own fans thanks to braces from Bryan Cristante and Andreas Cornelius either side of a Robin Goosens strike.

"There's been a change of manager, it's been a positive change I believe in terms of performances, tonight aside", Rooney said on BT Sport.

The Toffees had already been eliminated prior to kickoff but caretaker manager David Unsworth still selected a strong side for the encounter at Goodison Park.

Everton have taken only a point from a woeful group stage, but got back in the game at 2-1 through Ramirez Sandro's first goal for the club.

Three late goals consigned the Toffees to a heavy defeat at the hands of the Serie A side, who now sit 12th in the Italian top flight. We have to keep trying to pick up points in the Premier Legaue and try and climb up the league.

"It's our pride, it's not nice to lose games in the manner we lost it, it;'s very disappointing and upsetting", Rooney added.

David Unsworth is set to take charge again after the Toffees board were rebuffed in their pursuit of Watford boss Marco Silva.
