Moyes, leaving for Manchester United at the end of the season, watched his Everton side beat West Ham 2-0 in his last home game in charge thanks to two goals from Kevin Mirallas.

The outgoing manager reserved his most fervent praise for the home support, who gave Moyes a fantastic reception before, during and after the game.

"I thought we played as well as we have in a long time," Moyes said.

"We scored a well-worked goal in the first half and but for a couple of great saves and a few bad misses we would have had more.

"The crowd showed today what a big club Everton is, and I think today that was their part in it all. It was an emotional time during the second half because they got right behind their football club. They got the team that second goal.

"I think the crowd today showed what Everton means to them.

"I count myself extremely lucky. I have had a really good chairman and board who will let me get on with things. That is what Everton do: they want stability."

The result confirmed Everton's top-six finish in the Premier League, whilst West Ham are yet to ensure a top-half place.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
