Oviedo played the majority of Monday's game on the left side of midfield before dropping to full-back when Leighton Baines was replaced with just under half an hour remaining.
"It was important for me," Oviedo told evertontv. "I want to play, I want to have minutes on the pitch and I am happy about that. I work in training for this.
"I like both positions, I think on left wing I can play more attacking but I also like to play left-back. Whichever position I try to play well as that is my job for the team."
