Everton manager David Moyes has exclaimed his disbelief that his side came away from Villa Park pointless after a 1-0 defeat.
Everton conceded a well-taken Luke Young goal in the first half and despite dominating the match from beginning to end, the Merseyside club were unable to salvage a draw.
Speaking to Sky Sports Moyes said: "I can't believe that we've not at worst got a point from it."
Moyes expressed his belief that his side had dominated the game but praised the resolute defending of the home side.
"I thought from the first minute to the last we were on top but it's goals that win matches.
"We have to give Aston Villa a lot of credit for how they defended," he said.
Moyes also praised the efforts and application of his team whilst bemoaning the sides lack of potency in front of goal.
"We’ve been playing quite well but not scoring up the other end of the pitch and we need to do better.
"The boys did well and I thought the way they went about their job was excellent.
"We just can't put the ball in the back of the net and that's what gets points.
"I feel the boys are playing well enough to get points but at the moment we're not because at the moment we're just not scoring at the right end of the pitch," Moyes concluded.
