Everton manager David Moyes admits his side did not play well in their 1-0 defeat to Reading, but he is satisfied with the start to the season.
Reading took the victory, and ended Everton's 100 per cent start to the season, thanks to a 44th minute strike from Stephen Hunt.
However, Moyes insists his side were worth a draw after watching Everton dominate the second-half.
"We didn't play well today." Moyes told Sky Sports News.
"We didn't do as well as we have done recently, but we are maybe a little bit unfortunate not to get a draw out of it.
"I thought we started the first-half not bad and we had a couple of chances.
"We did do better in the second-half and the players fought very hard to try and get a goal back."
However, Moyes admits he is happy with Everton's start to the season after Wednesday's 3-1 victory over Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
"You come away to Reading and you come away to Tottenham in the first week and you have got to say they are tough games," Moyes added.
"Both teams had really good seasons last year, so we're are quietly satisfied, but today I thought there was a chance to take more than we did."
