Everton manager David Moyes felt his side were well in the game at White Hart Lane until Benoit Assou-Ekotto's killer second goal on the hour.

Goals in either half from Aaron Lennon and then Cameroonian defender Assou-Ekotto did the trick for the North London outfit at White Hart Lane.

Lennon's pace troubled the Everton defence before his low shot wrong footed Tim Howard. Assou-Ekotto's thunderbolt on the hour sealed the deal.

The Blues were competitive in the first half and Louis Saha twice went close to opening the scoring.

And Moyes said: "I thought we played well tonight. I thought if we had a little bit more, if we had somebody who could score a goal like Assou-Ekotto's then we'd have had a rousing finish here tonight.

"If it wasn't for that goal we were really in the game."

I don't disagree with him though. A little more quality in the final 3rd before Distin went off and we would be right in it.

We didn't have a single shot on target and Spurs had 62% of the possession.

Don't fucking patronise me.

I really hope that he isn't telling the players they played well when they come off the pitch at full time.

Seriously is that correct?  That is appaling.  Howard should have had a go just to remedy that stat if nothing else

Neither had Spurs, all four of them were deflected shots.

This shot on target obsession is a joke, it's a completely meaningless statistic.

On the BBC website we both had 7 shots off target, they had 7 on target and we had 4 on target.

Lennon totally mis-kicked and sent Howard the wrong way, shit defending by Baines mind but I'm sure we can let him off with the odd mistake.

Ekkotto's shot took a wicked deflection of Cahill, pretty much all Cahill did actually.

I can se what Moyes is on about, we has some excellent chances, with a bit of luck we'd have scored 2 today quite easily.

For all their pretty passing I can only think of a couple of Howard saves.

As you can see my glass is half full. lets not get too hysterical about a unlucky(ish) 2-0 defeat away to a genuine title contender.

I also thought Neville had a great game. Fuck it I've said it. He did well again against Bale. Just please don't ever play him in midfield.

According to Sky Sports statistics and my own eyes, yes.

Neither had Spurs, all four of them were deflected shots.

This shot on target obsession is a joke, it's a completely meaningless statistic.

This is our third game this season in which we have not had a single shot on target.

It's not a meaningless statistic, it's a frighteningly worrying one.
