Moyes insists Everton can keep fourth place

Everton manager David Moyes saw his side reach the 50-point mark - and is hungry for more.

Ayegbeni Yakubu's 16th goal of the season and another from defender Joleon Lescott brought a 2-0 victory against Manchester City at Eastlands.

In the process, Everton regained fourth spot from Liverpool after extending their unbeaten run in the top flight to seven games.

City went into the match on a high after beating Manchester United but were left deflated.

Everton were convincing winners and kept their dreams of Champions League football alive against one of their challengers.

Moyes' side showed no signs of fatigue despite playing in midweek - when they thrashed Brann Bergen 6-1 in the UEFA Cup.

Moyes said: 'To get 50 points at this stage of the season is fantastic and we have to keep building on it. The players are getting better and European football has helped us.

'There is a belief we can get good results - and I certainly believe in the players. We played well against City and defended superbly. We kept our discipline and made it hard for them to break us down.'

Yakubu opened the scoring on the half hour, prodding the ball home after Tim Cahill had carved out the opening.

Eight minutes later Lescott got goal-side of Richard Dunne to head home a marvellous diagonal ball from the unsung Lee Carsley.

City introduced Elano at the start of the second half but the Brazil playmaker could not make a difference.

Everton defender Phil Jagielka said on Setanta Sports: 'If we can finish fourth it will have been a massive season for us.

'Every point from now on will be vital. If we can keep our performances like we did against City then we should be there or thereabouts.'

To rub salt into City's wound they will be without Martin Petrov for three matches after he was red-carded by referee Rob Styles for kicking out at Leon Osman in stoppage time.

Manager Sven-Goran Eriksson claimed the Bulgarian was unlucky.

He said: 'I thought it was very harsh. The player backed into him and he flicked his boot at him. The Everton players seemed surprised he was sent off. But he got it and that's it.'

Eriksson added: 'We have been brought back down to earth after beating United but I thought we did well in the first 30 minutes.

'But in a few minutes we gave two goals away too easily and after that it was very difficult for us.'
