Moyes frustrated after draw

Everton manager David Moyes cut a frustrated figure after his side were held to a goalless draw by visiting Swansea at Goodison Park.

Leon Osman, Marouane Fellaini and Phil Jagielka all went close to breaking the deadlock for the hosts and the Scot was left to rue poor finishing which cost his team all three points.

He said: "It was frustrating. We had quite a few opportunities and made some chances but it was not enough, not clear enough chances really. On another day you take one and go on to win the game.

"We had three or four good opportunities to get a goal and we weren't able to take any. They did really well against Chelsea in the cup and did well again today.

"But I can't fault my boys, we made chances but didn't get behind them enough times and get the goals.

"In the main we score the goals but it was good to get a clean sheet in the end, maybe we used all the goal chances up at Cheltenham in the cup.

"I've said to the players that it's not the end of the earth. We should have taken three points but credit to Swansea they came and defended well and got a point, what they wanted.

"We had lots of opportunities in the first half, but they made it hard to play against after that and deserve a lot of credit for what they're doing at the moment."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
