Everton boss David Moyes hailed the "superb professionalism" of skipper Phil Neville as his first goal for three years helped his side to an emphatic 3-0 win at relegation-threatened Wolves.
Neville has this week seen his elder brother Gary Neville officially take up a punditry role with Sky Sports. But the midfielder showed that he has still a major role to play for the Toffees who extended their unbeaten run to six games from which they have collected 14 points.
Moyes said: "Phil, with his level of professionalism, means that whatever he does in life after football, he will be a success.
"He is so dedicated and does everything he can to be a success. Any that he gets, he deserves. He works really hard at everything he does.
"Mind you, it was a surprise to see him score. I think he was crossing the ball! I don't think I've ever seen him score in training, never mind in games.
"But in all seriousness he has been a great signing for me and is someone everyone likes."
