David Moyes: Everton showed 'a bundle of character'

Papiss Cisse had given the hosts a second-minute lead but Leighton Baines levelled with a stunning free-kick and Victor Anichebe scored within 90 seconds of coming on in the second half to secure victory.

Moyes said: "We had to do it the hard way again, unfortunately, but that has been the way it is.

"They've got a bundle of character, they've got great attitude. The result was right in the end.

"It was really poor defending (for Cisse's goal) and we should have dealt with it better. We expected them to come out strong and they did.

"But I have got to say, apart from that we were fantastic with our football. How we didn't go in at half time a couple of goals up I don't know."

Everton moved up to fifth with victory on Tyneside but Moyes insists he will keep his players grounded.

"You can only ever go onto the next game," he added. "We'll try and keep going, take it one game at a time; it's very simple.

"If I had a crystal ball and said we're going to have a great second half of the season, that'd be great, but I don't, so we have to prepare for every game as if it's our last and hopefully keep picking up three points."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
