GRAVESEN: SPIRIT THE KEY

Thomas Gravesen put Everton's first half performance against Tottenham Hotspur on Good Friday down to the excellent team spirit that exists in the Goodison dressing room.

The Blues midfielder produced another superb display as Everton secured a 3-1 win over David Pleat's side with goals from David Unsworth, a stunning free-kick from Gary Naysmith and Joseph Yobo, who weighed in with his second in two games.

Tottenham managed to press Everton more in the second-half and Gravesen, who was replaced by Lee Carsley two minutes before the end, admits that in light of the recent late goals the team have conceded it was important to remain focused.

"I think we have been playing well over the last couple of games," said the Dane. "We tried to create a lot of chances and we worked tremendously hard. I think that is shown in the team spirit we have at Goodison.

"We went on the pitch in the second half looking to score a fourth goal and it was a little bit nervy.

"We had a couple of chances but they had nothing to lose in the second half and we've seen a couple of come-backs recently so we had to be aware of that."

Gravesen, himself amongst the goals recently, was delighted with not only the way the team played but also the fact that three defenders managed to get themselves on the scoresheet.

"We'll take all the goals we can get," he added. "We practice a lot in training to score goals. Gary's free-kick was tremendous but he practices free-kicks every day in training so it came as no surprise that he scored."
