Everton manager Ronald Koeman insists now is not the time to start being "crazy" and believes he is still the man to turn around the club's failing fortunes.

A 5-2 defeat at home to Arsenal dropped the Toffees into the bottom three after just one win in their last eight league matches and increased the pressure on the Dutchman.

He remains adamant he can still arrest a slide which has seen his side win just twice in 13 games in all competitions - with a Caraboa Cup game at Chelsea up next on Wednesday.

"It is not a time to start to be crazy. I am responsible for this team. We lost 5-2. It is a big result," he told Sky Sports.

"The final result is really poor but all these kind of decisions (about his future) is not in my hands."

Asked in his post-match press conference if he could turn it around Koeman added: "Yeah. I think it is not the moment and everybody is so disappointed. "It is how you look to the situation. If you start to think negative then maybe there is no solution. I am not like that. All the rumours in the newspapers is normal.

"The team is underperforming, it is in a difficult situation mentally and struggling for confidence. That is what we need to change.I still believe I can change the whole situation but everybody knows how it works in football."

Man Utd's Ibrahimovic 'can play for six more years'

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's agent claims the veteran striker could play on for another five or six years.

The 36-year-old scored 28 goals for Manchester United last season but is currently recovering from a serious knee ligament injury.

United boss Jose Mourinho opted to re-sign the Swedish forward despite his injury, a decision which looks like paying off for agent Mino Raiola. Raiola told Expressen: "I think God sent Zlatan to me.

"He has so much in him. I think (he will play on for a) minimum (of) another five or six years. I won't let him stop. He has to work for me now.

"I have been working for him for several years. Now it's my turn. My children are grown up and I need money.

"We have agreed that he is only working for me for five years now. So we're flipping it now. The salary comes to me and he gets the commission."

Ibrahimovic signed a new one-year deal with United over the summer and could be available around Christmas.
