Toffees chief ready to battle
David Moyes feels his Everton side can challenge the Premier League big boys after watching them ease to a 3-0 victory at Swansea.
Goals from Victor Anichebe, Kevin Mirallas and Marouane Fellaini gave the Toffees a comprehensive victory and extended their record of having never lost to Swansea. The win also continued Everton's fine start to the season and moved them up into second in the table. Starting a season well has proved to be a problem for the Merseysiders over recent campaigns, but hopes are high among the Everton faithful this time around, as exemplified by their chants of "We're going to win the league" during the dying embers of the contest. Moyes stopped short of predicting a title challenge or Champions League qualification, but is confident his side can mix it with the sides at the top of the table. "It was great to hear the fans singing that as we have not heard it often at Everton," he said. "If we had won midweek against Newcastle as we should have done, we could have been mixing it with the big boys, which we are still doing and we want to be doing at the end of the season. "We have finished a lot of seasons strongly and the one year we got off to a good start we qualified for the Champions League and we have to do that if we can. We will probably finish where most people would predict and we will try and do that and we will do better if we can."
