David Moyes Slams "Poorest" Everton

"That was the poorest performance I can remember for a long time" - Everton manager, David Moyes commenting on defeat against Bolton Wanderers
Everton manager David Moyes claimed his side's 2-0 Premier League defeat at Bolton was their "poorest performance" of the season. The Toffeers fell to goals from Gary Cahill and Daniel Sturridge but more worrying was the abject nature of their contribution, with Trotters keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen only making one meaningful save late on from substitute Jose Baxter.

"That was the poorest performance I can remember for a long time. We conceded two bad goals, but our play in between that was not good enough. We never got started. We had a bit of the play for 20 minutes before half-time and one or two chances, but we were never really at the races," the Scotsman told Sky Sports afterwards. Defeat left them three points above the relegation places, but Moyes remains convinced they are too good to go down. "With the players we've got we should get out of it, but the players aren't playing well enough. They know themselves that was way below the levels we set ourselves," he added.

Bolton boss Owen Coyle, meanwhile, played down talk of securing Sturridge on a permanent deal after the on-loan Chelsea forward scored his third goal in three appearances since joining the club in January.

"That's a discussion for May. Chelsea certainly have some of the world's finest strikers and Daniel, I believe, can really push himself into that category if he continues to develop. He looks as if he's enjoying himself when he's playing. He lights the stadium up when he receives the ball because you think something exciting is going to happen," he said.
