Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has hailed the performance of goal scorer Victor Moses in his side’s 2-0 victory over Everton at the Britannia Stadium on Wednesday night.
The Nigerian international scored Stoke’s first goal of the match and he caused problems for Everton all evening, while another African, Senegalese Mame Biram Diouf netted the second to seal the three points for their third win in a row.
Hughes speaking after the game with BBC Sport said:
“We were very good. But it was typical performance of not allowing anything to sway us from what we want to achieve this season.
“It’s a fantastic header from Victor Moses and then we are in a position to soak up pressure and hit on the break. It was arguably Moses’s best performance for Stoke City.
“It’s a fantastic period at the moment, 42 points and we are eighth. We’re very happy but we still have work to do. People were talking about Europe at the press conference but we have never talked about Europe this year, it was all about achieving a points total that was greater than last year. I’m not sure Europe is achievable but we will have a go.”
