Moyes Pleased With Christmas Points

Everton overcame Wigan 2-1 at Goodison Park on boxing day, despite making hard work of Wigan blues manager David Moyes was pleased to take 6 points so far from the Christmas games.

Moyes: 'I've said to the players now we've won two from two and if you're taking six points from 12 over the Christmas period, some folk might deem that to be good.'

'Now we've got to try and take some more if we can. We'll try and keep it going. We needed it today. We've drawn a lot of these games recently and you could have said in the last five or 10 minutes today that it could have been tight. But we had one or two other opportunities to score before we did do to finish it off.'


Goals from Leon Osman and Phil Jagielka were enough to win the game on the day, next up Everton host Chelsea in a key fixture in Everton's hopes to qualify for Europe.

Crucial period, and although we are not playing the best football we have played, we are still winning, and that is what you have to do if you want to finish in the top 4. What makes it even more pleasing is that we are doing it without 2 of our most influential players in Fellaini and Mirallas. Bring on Sunday, massive game against Chelsea, win and we go 3rd!!!

It will be very tough against Chelsea without potentially Fellaini, Mirallas and Gibson, and with Jelavic not in form either we're a shadow of the side we were the first few games of the season. We need to be able to grind out results which last two games we have, was very nervous both times though have no faith in Howard or his defence these days.
