Moyes pleased with late win over Spurs

David Moyes Everton managerDavid Moyes is pleased that his side turned the tables on the opposition today and stole the points late on.

Everton have been the victims of late equalisers in recent weeks, and Moyes said it was about time his side returned the favour after watching the Blues come back from 1-0 down against Spurs to win 2-1 and take back fourth spot.

“After the few finishes like that where we have lost points we were due one,” he said.

“If Everton hadn’t won we would be sitting here asking how they hadn’t it. We played terrifically well and the attacking play we had was fantastic.”

“I actually think our poorest passage of play was in that last 10 minutes,” admitted Moyes. “We were trying to move players around; it was scrappy and we had tried everything to get ourselves an opening.

“But we kept at it and we got it in the end.

“I thought Seamus Coleman played great today but I’m not convinced he was trying to pick out Steven. But it’s a ball that gave us a chance to score and Steven’s header was terrific.

Jelavic’s finish was great as well because he was alert and alive. He could have been still but he gambled on something maybe nicking through and to finish it first time was excellent.”
