Moyes plays down Reds race

Published Add your comment

Everton boss David Moyes has continued to play down the prospect of his side finishing above Liverpool in the Barclays Premier League this season - despite seeing them go three points clear of their Merseyside neighbours with two games left each.

While the Reds were being beaten 1-0 at home by Fulham on Tuesday evening, the Toffees earned a 1-1 draw at Stoke. It meant Everton, seventh in the table, stretched their unbeaten run in the league to seven matches and extended their advantage over eighth-placed Liverpool by another point.

Asked after the Stoke game about the prospect of finishing above Liverpool, Moyes said: "I feel that if we can just try to keep winning, I will be pleased that we finish in the top 10. I think this point might just about get us that. If you said that to me at the start of the season, I would have taken that all day long."
