Moyes targeting record haul

David Moyes says victory over Chelsea on Sunday and a record Premier League points haul would be a fitting finale to his tenure as Everton boss.

David Moyes: Targeting farewell victory against Chelsea on Sunday

The Toffees will surpass their previous best haul of 65 by a point if they defeat the Europa League winners at Stamford Bridge.

Moyes said: "We finished the West Ham game off very well last week. That has put us in a league position where we can't go any further up or any further down.

"That is great, but we want to try to get a record points total if we can - that would be our final goal.

"It is a good game to finish off with, and it is not a game where there is nothing there."

With only the top five Premier League sides earning European qualification, Everton will not be involved in either continental competition next season, and Moyes admits that it is a big disappointment.

"In the year we qualified for the Champions League (2005, when they finished fourth to earn a place in the competition's qualifying rounds), the points we have (this season) would have been enough to get us there," he said.

"But we don't even make Europa League football this year, which is really tough on us.

"It was something we really wanted to drive for, to get back to European football.

"I thought it was something we needed as a football club, so we are disappointed to miss out on that."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
