Moyes proud of Toffees show

A magnificent solo effort from Jermaine Beckford was enough to seal the three points for the home side as they ended their Premier League campaign on a high. Despite having Seamus Coleman sent off for a second booking in the second half, Everton sunk the Blues when Beckford hit the winner in the 74th minute. And the Scot was proud of his side, telling Sky Sports: "Oh, I was really pleased with the performance. The players played great. "And they deserved it. I thought they played really well. You know, we went down to 10-men and it was always going to difficult. "Chelsea kept coming from different angles but you know it was a special goal which won the game. Probably Chelsea won't enjoy it but from our point of view it was a really good goal." Moyes admitted he thought referee Peter Walton got the decision to send Coleman off for his second bookable offence correct. He said: "I thought the referee got it right and I'm sure the panel won't be looking at that one today because they won't have a decision to make." And in terms of the goal, Moyes could not believe his eyes at Beckford's brilliance, adding: "Unbelievable! He gets the ball in his own box and he finishes in their box, going past I don't know how many, maybe three or four players, I don't know how many and it really was Roy of the Rovers stuff. "When people see it, they will be saying, my goodness, it really was. And when you're down to 10-men and he goes on a run like that, you're saying 'please run it into the corner', but he keeps going right through the middle and even Cech sort of saves it. "I'm watching from behind and it's spinning and spinning and it just goes inside the post. "I mean, that really is some kind of story line stuff. It was a great goal. I think Beckford has had a brilliant season."
