As it turned out, only Robbie was on target as Dean Marney grabbed the headlines with a two-goal show on his full debut at home and first start this season with first goals also for Reto Ziegler and Pedro Mendes.
Indeed, it might be said that Pedro's 20-yard cracker for 3-1 was the most important goal with Everton looking dangerous and pulling a goal back before half-time after we'd forged into a 2-0 lead.
Moyes said: "I thought we looked maybe the more liable to get an equaliser at that period but we were always under pressure from Tottenham, their forwards were hard work for us. We were always under pressure.
"I don't know how well Tottenham are playing but I know that wasn't as good as we can play, that's for sure.
"We're sore and we know we haven't done as well as we should have done, but we're still lying healthy and we'll plough on and try to get some more points."
Everton boss David Moyes pinpointed the partnership between Fredi Kanoute and Robbie Keane as the key factor in our 5-2 win on New Year's Day.
