David Moyes hailed Everton's first-half performance in the 3-1 win at Aston Villa, but insisted the Merseysiders should be judged after 10 games and not the opening brace of victories.
Goals from Steven Pienaar, Marouane Fellaini and Nikica Jelavic saw the Toffees follow up Monday's win over Manchester United in style. Villa could only manage a late consolation from Karim El Ahmadi as they lost their second successive match. To add to Villa's misery, defender Ciaran Clark was sent off for a professional foul on Jelavic after 58 minutes.
Moyes said: "We have won two out of two. We've always been good finishers to a season, and we've just got to make sure it doesn't happen in reverse. The job is to keep us going in the right direction. If you win two, it gets you off to an initial good start but you are judged a bit more after 10 games."
