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

Dynamic Everton take the points

Roberto Martinez gave David Moyes and the board at Manchester United a managerial master-class in tactics on Sunday.

This season under the Spaniard, Everton have usually dominated possession of the football. Created chances and been the team on the front foot.

But on Sunday, Everton switched tactics and played a more conservative counter-attacking style of football which had Manchester United well beaten.

'We had to be patient. Psychologically it was a tough game for us because it was the first time this season we gave the ball to the opposition.' Martinez told evertonfc.com.

He continued: 'Overall, it's fair to say we had the better chances and they had the ball. We were quite happy for them to have it and we were quite happy knowing how to use it to our advantage.

'If we'd needed to get on the ball and break them down, we would have done that. Today was about adapting to what needed to be done.

'Throughout this season, we've been a team that gets on the ball and breaks teams down. Today [Sunday] it was important we knew how to use the counter-attack. It's not straight-forward; carrying a threat on the counter-attack is a very different thing.

'We were very dynamic and I enjoyed our performance today.'


As Rob-EFC said on the article comments after the Manchester United game: As comfortable as you like, seemed like we didn't even need to go to that extra gear. Sat back, absorbed their pressure and then countered, and they simply couldnt handle that. Vital 3pts in the bag, and keeps us in the race for 4th. COYB!!
