Pienaar full of praise for young Everton duo Deulofeu, Barkley

Everton midfielder Steven Pienaar is impressed by the young players available to manager Roberto Martinez.

For their draw with Tottenham, Pienaar was impressed with the contribution of second-half substitutes Ross Barkley and Gerard Deulofeu, who helped Everton push the visitors onto the back foot.

He said: "Fresh legs gave us another dimension. They're two young guys full of energy. You could see from the changes the manager made that they were positive and we wanted to win. Now we have to go again next week. It's going to be hard to stay right up near the top. We need to take it step by step. We can't talk too high to early. November will be a tough month and we'll see where it brings us."
