Moyes: Too early to scare toppers

Published Add your comment

Everton manager David Moyes admits his side's lofty position in the Barclays Premier League may not be a concern for the title contenders just yet but it would be later in the season.

A 3-1 victory over Southampton, where the Toffees recovered from Gaston Ramirez's first goal in English football thanks to a close-range effort from Leon Osman and two strikes from Nikica Jelavic in a 14-minute period before the interval, put them within three points of leaders Chelsea.

Moyes is keen for people to not get carried away but admitted: "I'd like to be in there, in the mix, during the season but I don't think Manchester United and Manchester City will be worried to see Everton there at this time of the year. They might be worried if in April time we slip to the top of the league."
