David Moyes was pleased with his side's performance against Reading.
David Moyes was pleased with the way his side performed after their 2-0 victory over Reading at The Madejski Stadium.
A fierce Andy Johnson strike in the first-half followed by a neat finish from James McFadden in the second-half ensured Everton took all three points in a game they never looked like losing.
And Moyes was full of praise for a 'perfect' performance that came on the back of two successive defeats, including a 2-0 loss to Portsmouth and a crushing 3-2 defeat to Chelsea.
"It's a really hard place to come and get a result," he told Sky Sports.
"Reading are a team that is doing really well this season and they put us under an awful lot of pressure in the second-half, but I thought we created enough chances in the first-half to be winning the game quite comfortably.
"We've done better. We deserved more than we got from the Chelsea game last week - I think that gave us a bit of confidence, in the manner we played - but we had to play much better than we did at Portsmouth because that was our poorest of the season so far."
He reserved special praise for Johnson, whose goal and all-round play throughout was outstanding.
"He played really well today. Really, really well. Deserved his goal and maybe a bit unfortunate not to get another couple."
Moyes also credited McFadden, saying his goal could lead to more chances in the first-team.
"Good goal, good performance and it'll do his confidence the world of good.
"He's been a little bit unfortunate not to have played upfront more often, so maybe those goals will give him the chance to do that more often now."
