Everton manager David Moyes has praised on-loan Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder Landon Donovan for making an instant contribution on his return to the Merseysiders.

Moyes pinpointed him as the man of the match in his side's 1-1 draw at Villa Park, where the USA international was energetic and creative throughout, setting up Victor Anichebe's equaliser which cancelled out Darren Bent's opener.

Moyes said: "Robbie Keane and Thierry Henry have come back to the Premier League from America and they need a bit of time to settle because of having a break since the end of the MLS. But Landon has come in and played three or four 90 minute games already on the bounce since he arrived and that says a lot."
