Everton boss David Moyes insists goalkeeper Tim Howard didn't deserve a red card for his penalty concession in their 1-1 draw with Chelsea.

Chelsea's first half penalty was awarded after goalkeeper Howard brought down Nicolas Anelka but Moyes agreed with referee Lee Probert that it didn't warrant a red card.

"The goalkeeper could not get out of the way," said Moyes. "If it was me, I would want a penalty kick for it. But it definitely was not a sending off."
