Following yesterdays game at Goodison Park between Everton and Wigan Athletic both bosses, Roberto Martinez and David Moyes, spoke to the press about the result, the game, the referee and their teams performances, lets see what they had to say:

Latics boss Roberto Martinez

‘I would have been very disappointed with a point today, I thought the performance deserved three points.

‘It took us a while to find our feet but we defended really well although on the ball we couldn’t be ourselves and had to change things around.

‘Off the ball, we were resilient and composed and worked for each other really well.

‘Everton are always going to put you under pressure with the aerial threat but we did really well and in the second half we knew it was going to open up.

‘We took advantage of that and created enough chances to kill the game after we went 1-0 up, hitting the post and getting into good situations. And we dealt with all the danger really well.

‘It was just two moments where we lost our concentration and decisions didn’t go our way, and the players lose a game they didn’t deserve to.’

‘Overall it’s really disappointing not getting anything. We at least deserved a point. The performance was good enough.’

Everton boss David Moyes

‘It was a tough game all in all, Wigan made it hard for us, but I thought we controlled most of the game, created a lot of opportunities, and we were always on top.

‘I think a lot of people were probably surprised when Wigan took the lead, but if you don’t take your chances the opposition can always score and they did – and could’ve even got a second if I’m honest because they’ve then hit the post.

‘But if we hadn’t won it I think we’d have scratched our heads afterwards because we certainly controlled the game. We deserved the winner and from what I saw the penalty was correct.’
