An international break meant it was a quiet October for Everton, the month bringing just three games.
The first, at Wigan, ended in a 2-2 draw, a coolly-taken 86th-minute penalty from former Latic Leighton Baines earning a deserved share of the spoils.
Moyes' men again had to show their battling side at QPR and this time it took an own goal from Brazilian keeper Julio Cesar to cancel out Junior Hoilett's first-minute opener.
The final game of the month would bring Liverpool across Stanley Park for their annual visit and, frustratingly, the Blues would again have to settle for parity.
Two-nil down inside 19 minutes, it might have been worse. Yet Leon Osman pulled one back just two minutes later and Steven Naismith's first Everton goal evened things up with 11 minutes of the first half still remaining.
The Blues survived when a late Luis Suarez strike was controversially ruled out for offside and they went into November still fifth in the Barclays Premier League table.
