A disappointed David Moyes insisted his side need to learn to see out games after watching Everton draw for the fourth game in a row at Fulham.

Having overturned an early Bryan Ruiz goal, Marouane Fellaini's brace looked like handing the Blues a much-desired three points. But Steve Sidwell's 90th-minute strike meant Everton took one point and not three back to Liverpool.

Speaking to evertontv after the final whistle, Moyes said. "I can't believe we have only got a draw out of that. It is quite incredible. But give Fulham credit they kept at it. Their goalie made a couple of saves and we were incredibly wasteful in front of goal.

"We made a big mistake for their second goal. We've dominated quite a lot of games this season and not won. But that one we should have.

"Inside the first five minutes, we had three shots on target blocked and they took the lead direct from a free-kick. We found ourselves a goal down, and that was hard to take because then we were chasing the game."

However, the manager was quick to point out the positives of a performance that yielded 27 efforts on goal to the hosts' nine.

"The way we are playing, we are creating plenty of chances," he said. "I think we were playing that well in the second half of last season and earlier in this one.

"Perhaps the difference was that Nikica Jelavic was fully firing and at the end of all that good play he was the one that was getting us the goals.

"I think he is just a little bit off colour as far as his goals go at the moment. Its form, it comes and goes.

"We went 2-1 up and [Steven] Naismith misses a couple of chance to put it put it out of site but we didn't get it."
