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."
