Attacking Verve Pleases Moyes

Boss delighted by style of emphatic Fulham win.

Watch Video Attacking Verve Pleases Moyes

David Moyes was full of praise for a sparkling display of attacking football after Fulham were dismantled at Goodison Park.

Nikica Jelavic scored a brace to take his tally to 10 in a Blue shirt, while Marouane Fellaini and Tim Cahill also got on the scoresheet.

Steven Pienaar grabbed three assists and also had a hand in the other goal as Everton scored four for the third match in a row – the first time they have done so since 1964.

And Moyes beamed: “If you came to watch Everton for the first time at the moment you would say ‘oh boy, that is a pretty good Everton side’.

“You can see the players have a lot of confidence and are playing well. We are playing as well as we have been without arguably our best player in Leighton
Baines. We are creating chances and scoring goals – we look a very good team.”

He added: “Pienaar has given us the creativity, Jelavic the goals and Gibson the stability. The signings have helped but also today Osman, Neville and Hibbert were all good and there were a lot of really good performances. I was able to enjoy the game because we got a couple of goals up and because of the style with which we played.

Fulham boss Martin Jol missed the game with a chest infection, and coach Billy McKinlay joked that he wasn’t looking forward to reporting back to the Dutchman.

“I am really disappointed,” he said. “I have not spoken to the boss but I am not looking forward to that conversation!

“Everton were very good. You know what you are going to get here – a tough game, an intense game and a physical game. Today they were just better than us.”

Dave O'NeillWe need to hold onto our best players this summer and not sell like we did last year. We need to resign Pienaar and get a right sided midfielder. Also better back up for Jelavic and Baines
