Jake: ‘Jermain, you’re a star’

Monsieur Salut writes: an excellent point, might have been three. My own man of the match was Vito Mannone but no one played badly. Now over to the manager, David Moyes, for his customary post-match email ….

Dear Colin,

We had a good team out and they played well; we worked really hard to keep in touch with Liverpool and to come from behind twice was a great credit to the players.

Recently, our record at home has been very good. We’ve won a few games and that’s why, even today, it was important that we didn’t lose and attacked more.

What we need to do now is build on it, but I think today it would have been tough to get three points.

I always think you need a penalty taker who scores goals because you get a few a season and when you get them they’re important, and since I’ve been here Jermain has been great.

I thought we worked hard to get in situations and stuck at it, so credit to the players for that.

We’re beginning to play a bit better here and I think the crowd picked up on the players’ energy today.

We didn’t show it in the last game but we did today and we needed it because we were playing against a very energetic Liverpool side.

We deserved our point, we really did.

All the best,
