It needed an eagle eye to see it, says Moyes of Fellaini handball before Everton's opener

Everton manager David Moyes dismissed the suggestion his team had deserved the lucky break which set them on the way to a 3-0 win over Swansea.
After having two goals controversially ruled out in Monday's 2-2 draw against Newcastle at Goodison Park, Everton cruised to victory.
But a handball from Marouane Fellaini set up Victor Anichebe's opening goal, going unseen by referee Anthony Taylor.

Asked if Everton were due that stroke of luck, Moyes said: 'No, if the referee got it wrong then he got it wrong. I didn't see it. It needed an eagle eye the way it's been spotted.'
Television pictures showed Fellaini had used his arm to nudge the ball through.
Further goals from Kevin Mirallas and Fellaini himself put the seal on Everton's impressive away win.
'We could have scored probably six or seven goals,' Moyes told Sky Sports 2.
'But they had probably three or four good opportunities. Our goalkeeper thankfully made a couple of really good saves as well.'

Everton were certainly the more penetrative of the teams, and Moyes said: 'The performance was fabulous it really was. The players are playing really well, they're playing with a lot of confidence and self-belief.

'We felt we should have probably won on Monday night and if we had done we might have been in a better position than we are today.'
Everton are among the early pace-setters though, and Fellaini has been integral to their success.
He was again a handful at the Liberty Stadium, and the Belgian said: 'It was a great game, the team played well and we scored three goals so everybody's happy. It was a good job today by Everton.'
Asked about his part in the opening goal, Fellaini said: 'I tried to put my head on it.'
He is enjoying the attacking role he has been afforded this season and said: 'This season I play more in the front so I try to score goals in the box, and at the moment it's good for the team.
'At the moment the players have good confidence and we'll try again in our next game on Tuesday to win against Leeds.'
