David Moyes was in a positive mood despite the defeat to Manchester United on Sunday.
Two first half goals from Ryan Giggs and Robin Van Persie were enough to seal the victory for Manchester United and condemn Everton to only our fourth defeat of the season.
The defeat leaves us with a bit to do in the hunt for the Champions League places, Tottenham in fourth are now six points clear with twelve games of the season remaining.
But despite slipping David Moyes is pleased with what his small squad have achieved so far this season.
'It is only our fourth league defeat this season and I would say it is the only game where a better team has beaten us. We have got Leon Osman and Steven Pienaar, who we really rely on - and people like Leighton Baines - and we are asking a really big shift of these players because we can't change the team around too much. Moyes told the BBC.
He continued: 'People talk about Everton starting slowly and having a good half a season not a full one and maybe that's because we are asking a small number of players to do that for a full season. But these lads have done brilliantly and we are still in a really good position.
'If you had given me two draws against Manchester United and two points I would have said that that was good but we have taken three points off them so that's even better although we are obviously disappointed we lost today.
Moyes has a point and his timing is as always perfect.
Games against the run away leaders of the Premier League should be taken as what they are; Games that you expect little from.
Moyes would have taken two points against Man Utd this season and instead has taken three. Defeat is disappointing, but we bounce back and take points against Norwich and Reading and that gap will be closing up once more.
