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."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
