Cup Win Delights Moyes

Plenty of positives for Blues as Blades are defeated.

Cup Win Delights Moyes

David Moyes admitted he was left counting the positives after Everton cruised to a 3-1 victory over Sheffield United in the Carling Cup.

Richard Cresswell netted at both ends in the space of three first half minutes before Victor Anichebe and Mikel Arteta put the hosts in complete control of the second round tie.

The Blues now await the outcome of Saturday’s third round draw, but Moyes said progression wasn’t the only plus to come from a job well done.

He told evertontv: “It was a good victory. It looked a bit up in the air when they scored but we did not deserve to be behind, in fact, we had probably played well enough to be a goal in front.

“But thankfully we responded quickly and didn’t have to dwell on it for long.

“We made a mistake but nobody in the ground would have said we deserved to be behind, and in the end we have scored three but are probably disappointed not to have gone on and scored four or five.”

After responding to the early scare, the Blues looked much more like their old selves as they asserted themselves and cruised to victory.

Moyes added that he was pleased to see some key players bank some more match time.

“Anyone who thought Marouane Fellaini and Mikel Arteta were ready to start at the weekend should have been here tonight,” he added.

“You could see certainly by midway through the second half they need games and that they were not quite ready, but this game will have done them a lot of good and get them closer to where they need to be.”
