Despite the lack of a clean sheet and an own goal to his name it was a happy Shay Given who spoke to the press following the win on Sunday. Putting behind talk of Jaaskelainen and a spell on the bench of late he said that ultimately the three points and an improved performance after the Man City and Arsenal losses was the key result:
"I was disappointed with that, but luckily for me it hasn`t cost us any points. It was a bit unlucky for me - it took a wicked deflection off Alan Smith and I don`t think it was even going in. But I was backpedalling and trying to help it on. On another day, if I hadn`t have touched it, it may have hit the post and come out. But it then went on to the post, so it was unfortunate.
It was a great strike from Emre he found the bottom corner and that looked like the winner with just a couple of minutes to go. It was fantastic for us and then Michael Owen has popped with a goal after a trademark run. That looked like it was game over, but we conceded a bad goal at the other end. It was a great win for us.
It didn`t look like it was going to be a five-goal game but we were delighted to take the points. For us it was important to take the three points because we have the international break, and although we are all going away for internationals, we didn`t want to set off without getting the win. There is a big break and it was nice to get back to winning ways."
We said before the game it was important to get the win. Everton didn`t deserve the two goals they got because I hardly had a save to make all game. But sometimes as a keeper you get those type of games. The most important thing is getting the three points, scoring three at home and every-one going home happy."
