Moyes admits relegation fight
Thursday 03 March 2011
Everton manager David Moyes has admitted that his team are in a vulnerable position following their FA Cup defeat to Reading this week.
The Merseyside club beat Chelsea on penalties in the previous round but undid their fine work by losing at home to the Championship side. They remain 11th in the Premier League, five points above the relegation zone and have also lost midfielders Marouane Fellaini and Tim Cahill to injury.
"We know we are vulnerable," Moyes said. "You don't get into [this] position if you're not. It has not been the best of seasons, that is for sure."
