Aiming to maintain our position says Moyes

Aiming to maintain our position says Moyes

Well last night was why we all love football (well that might not be a view shared by Tottenham and indeed Manchester City fans).

For anyone watching Match of the Day last night the two headline games both featured dramatic last minute winners.

If you ever wanted evidence of why you shouldn't leave a game earlier this was it. After going 2-0 up against Manchester City, the champions drew level with their big rivals Manchester United, only for them to go on and score a last minute winner.

At Goodison Park after dominating possession and the majority of chances we somehow found ourselves a goal down to a scuffed and deflected Clint Dempsey goal.

But with 90 minutes on the clock Steven Pienaar headed home the equaliser and minutes later Nikica Jelavic stormed in to score an instinctive poachers goal to take all three points.

Goodison Park was rocking and that result lifted us back into fourth place in the Premier League, a spot that we had relinquished four weeks ago when we lost to Reading.

Three draws to Norwich, Arsenal and Manchester City dropped us down to sixth, but remaining unbeaten kept us in touching distance and this win catapulted us back there.

'It is as good a finish as we've had. We've had a few like that where we've lost and felt low so we were due one. Moyes told The BBC.

He continued: 'The position [fourth place] doesn't shame the way the players have been playing, they have been doing that well.

'But we could quite easily have slipped out and been in the bottom half of the league. It feels good today but we have to make sure we maintain that.'


With games coming up against Stoke, West Ham and Wigan, Moyes will be aiming for a minimum of six points to keep us in the Champions League hunt.
