The Everton manager David Moyes has said that he is extremely frustrated following the 2-0 defeat at the hands of West Brom during the weekend. Everton were coming into the match on the back of three consecutive victories over Manchester United, Aston Villa, and Leyton Orient.

However, they suffered their first defeat of the season when they took on West Brom. The Midland club has been in good form at the start of the new season, but nowhere near enough the form of Everton. However, they managed to spring a surprise after Steve Clarke's men got a 2-0 victory to remain undefeated in the season.

West Brom were coming on the back of the 1-1 draw with Tottenham and they once again proved resilient at the back by preventing Everton from creating a lot of chances. At the other end, they continued to be extremely positive in attack. It was not a surprise that they scored from the striker Shane Long in the second half. McAuley's goal in the final 10 min of the match sealed the three points for West Brom, as they remain undefeated in the season. The Everton manager David Moyes has said that he is frustrated that his team could not continue the good form.

“I thought for the first hour we had good control. But we didn’t do well enough in the final third today and that was the reason we didn’t win. I’ve got to say West Brom defended really well, they came off the play, allowed us the ball. I made a change to try and win the game because I felt we were not doing enough to try to score, and in opening up we conceded a goal from it. I probably should have stayed as we were and maybe come away with a 0-0,” said Moyes.
