West Ham boss David Moyes: “We give him [Aaron Cresswell] a lot of stick because he practices free-kicks so much and has not had many goals. He has had a lot of assists in other ways. It was a real good free-kick today. It was a really good win and I thought the players did a really good job. I would like the standards and levels to be better. Coming back from international duty and getting the players back on it is never easy. It was a tough game. We huffed and puffed at times. We had opportunities but so did they.”
Everton boss Frank Lampard: We’re disappointed because we deserved at least a point from the game. At 1-1, I fancied us to score a second. There’s a mistake and they break away and score. It drops to them. The first goal is a free kick in the top corner. The reality is that we are in that kind of moment where everything is going against us – decisions, moments in games, red cards. I can’t fault the players, their character, play generally.
