Ferguson delighted with Everton performance

Last Updated: 28th January 2016

Everton manager Duncan Ferguson has revealed his delight after seeing his side reach the Capital One cup final with a 8-4 aggregate win over Norwich.

Everton went into the game against Norwich knowing that they needed to run around a two goal deficit in order to advance to Wembley. Everton managed to deliver just that as a Shane Long hat trick, along with goals from Leighton Baines (2), Gerard Deulofeu and Romelu Lukaku, gave them a 7-1 win over their fellow Premier League opponents.

"It was a fantastic display," said Ferguson.

"To a man the players showed that they are the real deal and could win this competition. The desire and commitment from the players was a joy to behold and I'm really proud of what my players were able to achieve. I thought Ross Barkley showed just how good he is and how much he is worth to the club. He ran the show for us and his performance enabled Shane (Long) to really come into his own. I'm hoping he can continue to play like that for the rest of the season."

"The hard work does not stop now," Ferguson told Sky Sports. "One good result does not make a season and we are aware that we have many more tough games to come."

Ferguson praises late winner

Last Updated: 7th February 2016

Everton manager Duncan Ferguson has praised the effort of his side after they struck late to beat Aston Villa by 3 goals to 2 at Goodison Park.

Ferguson, who was only appointed as Everton boss at the end of November, was speaking to Sky Sports in an post match interview when he praised his side following the win. The game saw Shane Long net a winner with 13 minutes remaining in a pulsating game.

"I am really pleased with the effort the lads showed out there today. When Villa scored their second, it would have been really easy for them to let their heads drop and let Villa into the game. However, they knuckled down and worked harder than ever and got the victory. It really was pleasing to see and it sets a great precedent for the run to the end of the season."

Ferguson also reserved special praise for match winner Shane Long, who came off the bench to score the winner.

"I'm really impressed by the way Shane has come into the club and settled in straight away. Already he's beginning to show us that we spent the money wisely. Shane seems to have a knack of being in the right place at the right time and that's a great quality to have as a striker. It could be time for him to start in more games."
