Everton boss Moyes: We have best of MLS loan trio

Everton boss David Moyes feels they have the best of the three MLS stars now on-loan in the Premier League.

LA Galaxy captain Landon Donovan was outstanding in Everton's 1-1 draw at Aston Villa, which had teammate Robbie Keane on the bench. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, meanwhile, sees New York Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry as an impact player.

Moyes said: "Robbie Keane and Thierry Henry have come back to the Premier League from America and they need a bit of time to settle because of having a break since the end of the MLS.

"But Landon has come in and played three or four 90 minute games already on the bounce since he arrived and that says a lot.

"It's a testament to the professional he is. He was the best player on the pitch at Villa.

"His work rate was terrific. I played him on the right, left, then down the middle because he was the one who looked as if he had the energy.

"We've never had the chance to take him off in games because we need him so much with his running and the quality he has on the ball.

"Now we are going to try and give him a couple of days off so I don't burn him out before he goes back to LA."
