Everton were left baffled on Saturday as their hopes of a place in next season's Europa League came to an end following a goalless draw at Stoke.

Needing a victory to maintain their challenge, it looked as though they would be granted that wish when Phil Jagielka found the net in the 72nd minute. However to Everton's astonishment referee Howard Webb disallowed Jagielka's effort, apparently because Victor Anichebe was offside.

Moyes skipped the post-match press conference and his assistant Steve Round said: "We thought it was a perfectly good goal. We cannot quite understand why it was disallowed. The officials made the decision and we have to respect that."

He added: "He (Anichebe) is in an offside position but is he interfering, I don't know. We have taken a corner and it has been headed straight in the net."
