Everton manager David Moyes admits his team have exceeded his expectations in lifting themselves to seventh place in the Barclays Premier League.

A 2-0 victory over West Brom, thanks to Leon Osman's shot taking a huge deflection off Gareth McAuley in the 18th minute and substitute Victor Anichebe's strike off the post midway through the second half, took the Toffees above near neighbours Liverpool.

"If you said to me at the start of the season we would be in seventh with seven games to go I don't think I would have believed you," said Moyes.
