Moyes: Everton special player away from reaching next level

Everton boss David Moyes admits they're a "special player" away from taking the club to the next level.

Moyes saw his team defeated at Anfield by a ten-man Liverpool on Saturday.

"When we were 11 v 11 we were probably better but when they went down to 10 we kept the ball well and tried to do the right things," he said.

"We could have done with a little bit more width at times but when we got to the final third we didn't have the real top-end [quality] that was required.

"That is why you need special players and the top sides have that.

"I thought we came and showed there is not that big a gap between Liverpool and Everton in terms of what is being shown on the field.

"The players played well and I'm not disappointed with the performance."
