David Moyes insisted Everton's second half 'goal' should have stood after the 0-0 draw at Anfield.

Sylvain Distin headed in Leighton Baines' cross 11 minutes into the second period but referee Michael Oliver decided Victor Anichebe had fouled Pepe Reina.

It was a decision which was met with widespread skepticism.

Moyes said: "It was a goal. The goalkeeper runs into our player so the goal should stand.

"If we run into the goalkeeper then give a foul for that, but he ran into us, so it was a goal. The referee said he gave the foul on Victor Anichebe for impeding the goalkeeper."

Other than that contentious decision there was little to split the two Mersey rivals in a hard-fought derby encounter. Moyes and his troops will now focus on gaining six points from their final two games and continuing their push for Europe.

The manager continued: "I thought we did what we had to do. We didn't make as many chances as we would have liked.

"We found it hard to get a lot going for us, things weren't going our way. That's what happens when you come to Anfield, you very rarely get good decisions.

"We are still in there. We picked up a point, we've had a really difficult run-in and we will keep pushing."
