Hughes, whose side remain unbeaten in the Premier League, does not expect Everton to be propping up the table for long.
"Everton showed today that they're in a false position and it's clear they're a very good side," said Hughes.
"They're at the wrong end of the table but I don't anticipate that lasting for long.
"In most of the games I've seen of them on video and TV they've played well and had impact. They've been unlucky not to get more points.
"They probably just need a win to get them going again. I'd imagine no one in the Everton camp is too concerned."
