Moyes hails Toffees character

11 Feb 2010 - 08:31:14

Manager David Moyes believes Everton are beginning to get the results their performances deserve following Wednesday's 2-1 victory over Chelsea.

Louis Saha scored twice and should have had a third as the Toffees - who lost 1-0 to Liverpool in the Merseyside derby at the weekend - came from behind to beat the Premier League leaders at Goodison Park.

Chelsea took the lead through Florent Malouda but Saha's 100th goal in English league football levelled proceedings midway through the first half.

The Frenchman then missed a late first-half penalty but he made amends 15 minutes from time, capitalising on a John Terry mistake to volley home.

"It's a terrific result and it just shows the way we have been playing in the recent weeks and months," said Moyes.

"To not have (Marouane) Fellaini and (Steven) Pienaar, who over the months have done really well for us, shows the players who have come in have done really well.

"To go a goal behind and come back, I don't know how many teams do that against Chelsea.

"We had to hang in because for 20 minutes Chelsea were fantastic."

Speaking about Saha's timely brace, the Toffees boss joked: "He should have got four, not two.

"I gave him a slight pat on the back but not a full one."
