Distin hails Everton's fighting spirit

Published Add your comment

Everton defender Sylvain Distin believes the club has an inherent winning mentality which is impossible to ignore.

And the Frenchman admits if, as a player, you do not grasp it within a couple of weeks of arriving, manager David Moyes is quick to point it out to you. The players' never-day-die attitude was exemplified in their last-gasp 2-1 win over Tottenham when Steven Pienaar and Nikica Jelavic scored within 88 seconds of each other to secure the three points.

"We always believe we can win and we proved it again," said the centre-back, who stressed they were not happy to settle for a draw after Pienaar's 90th-minute equaliser. "We were unfortunate with the goal we conceded but we never stopped believing and we always kept fighting."
