Boss Boosted By Mirallas Approach
Mirallas' desire to beat players and shoot at goal pleases Moyes.
David Moyes believes Kevin Mirallas offers a new dimension to Everton's attacking play.
Mirallas was handed a first Premier League start in Monday's 2-2 draw with Newcastle. The Belgian's quick feet and penchant for a snapshot were apparent and his manager was pleased with the Belgian's intrepid approach.
"He had three or four opportunities that he made himself," Moyes told evertonfc.com. "I thought he played well. He'll give us another attacking player who looks like he might have a goal in him.
"He can play either side for us and he'll play through the middle as well. He scored a lot of goals in Greece and I think you could see tonight, every time he got the ball you thought he was going to try and get a goal and try to shoot somehow.
"Hopefully he does that and a few go in for us."
Moyes was also able to reflect on the impact Victor Anichebe had on proceedings after coming on as a substitute.
The powerful Nigerian had the unenviable task of replicating the goal threat of the injured Nikica Jelavic and responded with two goals - though only one was awarded by referee Mike Jones and his assistants.
"He got the winner that went over the line which they didn't give," added Moyes. "You've got to say, on the night, he had two goals - he did score one and he did score another that wasn't given."
