Everton manager David Moyes lauded his team for a "fabulous performance" after Tim Cahill's stoppage-time winner against Manchester City at Eastlands.

Drafted in as an emergency striker, Cahill climbed above Micah Richards to head in a corner from Leon Osman .

He said: "I thought it was a fabulous performance and result. If ever a team and its character was going to be judged it was after the defeat (to Aston Villa)."

Moyes added: "It would have very easy to get down but they bounced backed immediately. Those players played well and in the end deserved the victory.

"At times it was 4-4-2, at times it was 4-5-1, at times it was 4-6-0. So there you go, work that out. I have always said Tim can play up front and he scored with a great header, which he has been threatening to do for a month or so.

"As for Leon Osman, he had a fitness test and should not have played. But we have a group who always want to play. They play when they are injured and play out of position. They get on with it and it is great when you have a group like that."

City remain too close to the relegation zone for comfort but manager Mark Hughes believes they can regroup in the coming weeks when they face West Brom, Hull and Blackburn.

He said: "Ideally we would have preferred three more points but we have games coming up where we need to start putting points on the board.

"We can't dwell on it too much. We have got to get on with it with Christmas coming up."
