Everton manager David Moyes has praised his side's defence after they scored a last minute equaliser at Chelsea.
Tim Cahill scored an overhead kick on 90 minutes to deny Chelsea from taking all three points at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea were dominant for much of the game after Didier Drogba had put the home side ahead after 71 minutes.
Moyes had particular praise for his backline and goalkeeper Tim Howard who were up against tough-battling Drogba.
"I felt the performances of my two centre-halves and goalkeeper were outstanding," he said.
Joleon Lescott received high praise yet again from Moyes.
He added: "He's played against one of the best centre-forwards in Europe, and I thought he did well against him.
"There was a bit of a misunderstanding with the corner they scored from, but I thought we did very well."
Everton's next game sees them face Sunderland at the end of the month, after the international break and Moyes is hopeful his side can build on their performance.
"We want to kick on; we are on a good run now," he said.
"Everyone is playing a part in the team. We've got a good squad and a great team spirit."
