Everton manager David Moyes praised Kevin Mirallas’ performance in a 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur.
Emmanuel Adebayor opened the scoring for Spurs in the 1st minute of the match, but Phil Jagielka and Mirallas netted for the Toffees before Gylfi Sigurdsson leveled the score to share points.
With the visitors missing Marouane Fellaini and Steven Pienaar due to suspensions, Moyes credited the performance of Mirallas, who scored a beautiful solo effort.
“Mirallas was our individual today and did what Gareth Bale may usually do,” Moyes said.
“I thought Mirallas got better in the second half and his goal showed why you stick with strikers. Even after his goal we had a couple of chances to make it 3-2.
“It was going to be hard anyway but today we went to try and win it and we made a change, got a goal and we had to defend a lot after that. So we’ve done everything we possibly can to get a result.
“We’re playing a good team. We’ve taken four points off Spurs this year. We’re trying to hang in there. Does [the result] help us? Probably not.
“But I said before today that if we had lost today we would still be right in the mix. What does a draw do? It shows we played well enough to get a point.
“Tottenham played well but in truth we should have nicked the game at the end. It was a really good game, with both sides trying to win.”
