Following two successive victories to start the season, Everton manager David Moyes has hailed his current squad as one of the best he’s seen at Goodison Park in quite some time. The blue half of Merseyside can be thrilled with their side’s rampant start to the season, including an opening day win against giants Manchester United.
“I have told the players it was as good as I’ve seen for a long time at Everton,” Moyes said after the Toffees’ victory over Aston Villa yesterday.
“We missed a few chances before we scored but we played very well.
“We have been slow starters but we always have been good finishers so have to watch we don’t do it in reverse this time.”
Nonetheless, Moyes is exercising some caution, warning fans that it’s best to gauge the team’s progress after the season hits the quarter-season mark.
“I have always felt it is best to make judgments after 10 games,” he warned.
The most crucial element of Everton’s key start to the season has been Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini. The giant central midfielder scored against Manchester United and again this weekend at Villa Park, and it’s his consistency that has propelled the Toffees to a blistering hot start.
“Fellaini’s goal was a little lucky today because Shay Given should have saved it, but Tim Howard should have saved their goal too,” Moyes admitted.
“But Fellaini is carrying on this season where he left off.
“He was involved in a lot of the good stuff we played today.”
