Everton skipper Phil Neville has ducked questions over the future of manager David Moyes.
Moyes' contract runs out in the summer and the Scot has said he will not make a decision on his future until later in the season.
"That's something that only the gaffer can answer," said Neville in response to speculation about Moyes.
"He has brought all of the players in the squad to the club and we all want him to stay but that's up to the manager.
"We aren't using that as an excuse for Saturday's performance -anyone that does, that's a bit of a cop out."
