What I found interesting was David Moyes's reasons for rejection.
"While it might be quite exciting, we play 38 Premier League games and that is where you should be judged," said Everton's manager, David Moyes. "Say it is Tottenham who finish fourth after an unbelievable season and they get beaten by a team who finish seventh, having worked so hard?"
It just well could be Everton doing a number on Spurs. Or I dare say Moyes is talking about Everton having an unbelievable finish and ending up fourth. Which is still very possible.
