Everton boss Moyes has spring in his step over recent results

Everton boss David Moyes is a happy man as recent performances have seen the Toffees lose just twice in 14 matches and book an FA Cup semi-final berth against rivals Liverpool at Wembley. "Certainly at Swansea and Sunderland we played really well and hopefully the team have come into good form at the right time," said the Scot.

"We have been on a decent run without it being great so there have been good signs.

"It has been a good period for us. Things have been getting a little bit better but I've not always been delighted.

"We have won some big games and I still didn't think we had played as well as I would have liked but the last couple of games I've been pleased I could come away and say 'I'm having a bit of that'.

"From that point of view I have enjoyed the performances, obviously the results have been great.

"When you are a manager and you work and don't get many results, and have to come and speak to the media and explain how it didn't go so well, it is difficult.

"You put in the work and the hours to try to get the results and I am not putting in any more work now than 12 weeks ago.

"But if you don't get the results or the players are not performing then that is why you see me a bit miserable quite often because I want us to do well.

"But when you play well as we have done recently, it lifts the manager."
