Midfielder Gareth Barry says Saturday's opening goal against Hull should not be taken away from teammate Kevin Mirallas.

Replays of the eighth-minute strike suggested the ball may have glanced off the studs of the loanee midfielder on its way to beating Tigers stopper Allan McGregor.

However, Barry says he doesn't recall getting a touch and insists he won't be challenging what was the Belgian's first Premier League effort of the campaign.

Asked if he'd be claiming the goal following Everton's eventual 2-1 win, Barry said: "No, I don't think so. I don't remember getting a touch but I remember it fizzing past me. I haven't seen the replays and they might show different to be honest, but it was a good strike from Kevin, so he deserves it."

The strike in question was later cancelled out by Hull substitute Yannick Sagbo before Steven Pienaar stepped off the bench to mark his comeback from injury with the winner 11 minute into the second half.

And Barry added: "It was exactly the game we were expecting. Hull have started really well since they came up and these games can be difficult after the international break.

"We've had a lot of lads away and they've come back and sometimes you can be tired.

"In the end it was a big three points because these games can slip you up sometimes.

"They had a go but we created enough chances and deserved the three points."

Victor TayThanks for having another good game Barry.
