Marouane Fellaini said Everton's win over Sunderland was down to David Moyes' tactical switch - rather than his own performance.

Fellaini was moved to a deeper midfield position by his manager during the second half as the Blues trailed Sunderland 1-0 .

After the switch, the influential Belgian star promptly scored the equaliser before setting up the winner for Nikica Jelavic just two minutes later.

Fellaini told evertontv: "The manager changed the tactics and when he did I scored and got the assist, so it was good for the team.

"We started well but after 25 minutes we weren't playing as well and weren't creating enough chances. Sunderland started to play well.

"But the team kept going and in the end we got the win."

The goal which levelled the scores was Fellaini's third in two games but the 24-year-old preferred to look at the bigger picture, emphasising the value of winning without turning in exemplary performances.

"It is good for me but the most important is the three points," he added. "Today wasn't a fantastic game for us but sometimes it is important to win like this."
