David Moyes' detractors at Everton are being accused of forgetting recent history regarding the current Manchester United manager. Roberto Martinez's success at Goodison Park this season has seen many critics question why Everton weren't doing the same under Moyes last term.
But as the Daily Mail points out today:
By Christmas Day this year, Everton have beaten Manchester United at Old Trafford, drawn with Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal, defeated Chelsea at Goodison and lost at Manchester City. 9 points out of 18.
By Christmas Day last year, Everton had beaten Manchester United (admittedly at Goodison Park but in mitigation, last season's United were a stronger force), defeated Tottenham, drawn with Liverpool and Arsenal, lost against Chelsea at Goodison but drew at Manchester City. 9 points out of 18.
By Christmas Day this year, Everton have scored 29 goals, one less than last season, although they have admittedly played one fewer game.
