Everton manager David Moyes has praised his side after they won 2-1 away at Newcastle, thanks to a stunning Baines free kick and an excellent move that substitute Anichebe finished off.

The blues fell behind early on due to poor defending, something Moyes was unhappy with:

‘We had to do it the hard way again, unfortunately, but that has been the way it is. The result was right in the end.

‘It was really poor defending and we should have dealt with it better. We expected them to come out strong and they did.


Despite going behind Everton had the better of the game and got the result in the end, pleasing the manager:

‘But I have got to say, apart from that we were fantastic with our football. How we didn’t go in at half time a couple of goals up I don’t know. Fellaini, Naismith and Pienaar had great chances.’

‘I can only praise the players, we could have easily come out with four victories. It was a great effort, a big effort.’
