David Moyes insists continuing Everton's fine start to the season at QPR will be no easy task despite the gap between Sunday's opponents.

The Londoners are without a win and rock bottom of the Premier League table, while the Blues are flying high in fourth.

But despite the differing openings to the season, Moyes has called on his players to show the same attitude as seen in the comprehensive away wins at Aston Villa and Swansea.

"We want to keep the good start going," he said.

"You're always worried about any side you have to play in the Premier League, whether they've won all their games or none, because everybody is competitive. The games are very tight. The difference between winning and losing can be so small at times. We go to QPR knowing they have a very experienced side with lots of good players and we're going to have to play very well."

With a two-week international break putting domestic action on hold prior to this weekend, the Blues boss is keen to carry over the Club’s dazzling performances into the busy months ahead.

He said: ""You hope that the players left with confidence and come back in with confidence. You go again from where you left off, but the game after the break is not an easy one - especially for the away team. Having said that, I can't see any reason why the players wouldn't continue to play in the fashion that they have done.

"Our attacking play so far has been excellent. We've probably created as many chances as anyone in the Premier League. We're certainly up there with the main teams doing that, but we've got to make sure we're harder to beat.

"Our points tally is good for this time of the season - we normally have five or six at this time of the year. We've got to build on it. I see this period as a difficult time - we have a few away games in London, a derby to play too.

"You go on a run up to Christmas time which is busy as well. All we really need to do is keep looking at the game in front of us, keep picking up points, keep creating chances but also tighten up a little bit so we're not having to score three or four goals to win."
