The 31-year-old's goal, just after he came on as a second-half substitute, extended Everton's unbeaten Premier League home record in 2013 to 13 games and brought to an end Hull's four-match unbeaten run.

Pienaar, who had missed four league matches with a hamstring problem, admitted it was a bit of a dream after a troubled start to his campaign.

"I think it was a lucky touch," he told Sky Sports.

"I wanted to get a few minutes to get used to the tempo of the game, but to get a goal and the win itself is something that I'm really happy about."

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
