Everton boss David Moyes has refused to criticise his Everton team despite critics pillorying them for a lack of attacking threat.
According to the manager people have been informing him that for a couple of matches his side did not manage a single shot on target, and although he admitted the side could do with more goals, he refused to buy into any suggest that the team is in crisis.
“The minute we don’t get a few shots on goal everybody jumps on it but we’ve actually been doing okay, playing okay, just not scoring the goals which obviously makes a difference,” he said.
After the weekend’s game against Norwich, only West Bromwich Albion and Queen’s Park Rangers had scored fewer home goals than the Blues, but Moyes is confident that things will change soon, especially with Landon Donavon set to rejoin the club on loan in the new year. People placing a Premier League bet will know he has the ability to boost the club’s fortunes.
“We are really looking forward to getting Landon back. He did great for us before. We have been watching him closely and we would have had him back last year but after the World Cup and all the football he has played it was just too much,” he added.
Moyes also explained that as the club had been keeping a close eye on Donovan in his absence, they had a good idea as to where he could slot in and would be looking to employ him in a number of different roles.
