thumbnail Hello,

Following the club’s victory over Swansea, the boss was full of praise for his side, insisting they were a joy to watch and could be playing in Europe next season

Everton manager David Moyes insisted that a European place is a realistic target for his club this season after seeing his side defeat Swansea 3-0, adding that he would pay to watch his team this season.

The Toffees began the game on fire, with Victor Anichebe putting them ahead on the 22nd minute. Shortly before half-time, Kevin Mirallas scored his first Premier League goal to double the lead. Following Nathen Dyer's red card in the second half, Marouane Fellaini secured the Merseyside club's convincing win with a headed goal.

Everton have been impressive so far this season, having already beaten Manchester United, and how have 10 points from a possible 15, sitting third in the league. Moyes says that he is pleased with their style of play, and says that a place in the Europa League is a possibility for the club.

"I'm not an optimist, but I said to the players afterwards: 'I'm enjoying watching you play,'" Moyes told the Daily Telegraph.

"There were times at this point last season when I wouldn't have paid to watch us play. I would definitely pay to come and watch us now.

"A Champions League place would probably be seen as unrealistic with the quality of the Premier League, but I think pushing for a European place is a realistic target for Everton.

"European football is something I think everyone at Everton would like to get back. The first thing is always to get 40 points and get yourself safe, so I don't want to get carried away too quickly."
