'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Draws to cost Everton?

It was Everton's first stalemate in five league games and the first time we've failed to score this season.

But the goalless draw with Swansea over the weekend left everyone at Everton frustrated, it was a simple case of two points dropped in the chase for the UEFA Champions League positions and after our run of 8 draws in 11 games during October and November the fact we couldn't put Swansea away was worrying.

'We are a bit frustrated, Swansea did a really good job in midweek on Chelsea and it was similar today.

'We needed to play a little bit better, pass it a bit quicker and be a little bit more clever in the final third. We didn't do that as well as we would have liked.'
Everton gaffer David Moyes told The Echo.

As ever Everton had the best of the possession and created the most chances, but in what seems to be a reoccurring theme especially in recent months we couldn't get the result the performance probably deserved.

He added: 'I thought we had three or four good opportunities but I couldn't turn around and say anyone missed a real sitter.

'I thought we kept going, tried to do the right things, although we could have done it better. I can't fault the players for their effort because they went right to the last minute to try and get the goal.

'The draws could cost us if we can't turn them into wins, but we just couldn't get the ball over the line.'


Everton have now drawn ten games this season, a tally only surpassed by Stoke with eleven draws.

Only Manchester City have tasted defeat less often than Everton, however the lack of three point hauls leaves us three points behind Tottenham in fifth.
