David Moyes has lavished praise on Bilyaletdinov´s attitude, labelling him a “top, top professional”
In the absence of Royston Drenthe through injury, Bilyaletdinov gained a rare start on Saturday, impressing the Goodison faithful by capitalising well on David Wheaterâ€™s error to reduce Bolton to ten men while also delivering the assist for the vital opener to send Everton on their way to a 2-0 victory.
Moyes: “Bilyaletdinov sometimes he doesn´t get enough credit”
He´s actually a boy who is desperate to do well, a really conscientious worker.
“He did quite well early in the season, but then I decided to make some changes and he missed out, and he was really unlucky in that sense.
“It´s been a difficult time for him, and we hope he can continue like this.
“What he wants is to be given an opportunity, he wants a chance like all players do, but I have to say, he´s never complained for a minute, he´s got on with his work, he´s been a pleasure every day in training, he really is, and his effort he puts in, if people aren´t aware of that then they should realise he´s a top, top professional.
“There´s bits of it where the game could at times be a little bit quick for him, but we´ve talked about it, and we´ve wondered, do we miss his goals when he´s not playing?”
