Everton boss David Moyes has had a dig at the local and national press after his side’s last win over Liverpool last night.

“What are you lot going to do now?” he joked.

“All those Liverpool fans, especially in the local press. The way you build that side up. I bet you’re all stunned tonight. We completely controlled the game, although neither side played especially well. After the sending off we had as much control as Liverpool did in the first game at Anfield, but we struggled to find a way through, just like they did.”

“This has been one of the proudest moments for me as a manager, of course. We’ve shown against the top four this season that we can compete with them. We drew with Arsenal, we drew with Manchester United here and we drew with Liverpool twice at Anfield. Now we’ve beaten them.”

“There is more to come, though. We’re learning and getting up to their level. The fans were desperate for a win tonight, but then so were Liverpool’s.”

Just who does he think he’s kidding exactly?

Liverpool were down to ten men, and had been for an hour before their deflected goal, and were also short of their best two attacking players – Gerrard and Torres.

Having played Everton away twice this season, sense should say to any Liverpool supporter that the three points so easily claimed at Goodison Park on September 27th last year are the more valuable when compared to this FA Cup tie.

The reaction of the Everton supporters can only be described as small-time as well – waving Gerrard off as he was substituted and their celebrations at the final whistle. No wonder Benitez called them a “small club” before if he has this kind of evidence to go on.

The defeat could be a blessing in disguise with a tight Premiership and Champions League fixture list to play in the coming months. The FA Cup is a distraction next to these two trophies – which we still have every chance of winning.
