City’s excellent win at Goodison Park keeps us in the mix for that 7th placed finish. It also means we are undefeated on Merseyside this season.

What they said…

Mark Hughes, after seeing his side hit 8 goals in 3 consecutive wins:

‘We were excellent today. There was a great focus in our play and some of our attacking was excellent as well. We scored at good times and although we had a bit of a wobble at the end, we won the game comfortably.

‘We’ve had decent performances away from home before but not got the breaks. Today I thought we looked really nice and solid. Going into the game, the lads were very much of a mind that this was an opportunity for us.’

‘Robinho was excellent today, not just for the goals but his all-round game, and he is really hitting some form for us. He’s had some stick this season but his play – and that of Ireland’s – was outstanding.’

David Moyes, birthday boy went a bit Taggarty-Whinger:

‘I expected us to win it, I expected us to do what we do, so I’m just disappointed we didn’t do that.

‘It was two counter-attack goals. I think the first one was from our free-kick and the second one, I think we were having a shot at the edge of their box.

‘We didn’t defend particularly well after that, so we gave them those opportunities.’
