David Moyes has backed his Everton side to build on the win at West Ham with a Boxing Day victory at home to Wigan.

A second-half comeback at Upton Park on Saturday took the Blues' latest unbeaten streak to six games, with the Latics next up at Goodison on Wednesday, before Chelsea visit Merseyside on Sunday 30 December.

And ahead of the fixtures, the Blues boss signaled the importance of picking up points as the Premier League heads into 2013.

He said: "To get a win at the start of the schedule is important because you want to come out of the Christmas period no worse than you began, but if you can improve your league position over the course then that's great.

"We've got to try and pick up the points and it's an important time. I'm not saying you're looking at the finishing line, but when you get to January, you want to be in a good place if you can be."

Wigan arrive at Goodison in 18th position, with 15 points from the opening 18 games.

Despite the Toffees sitting 13 places higher in the table with twice as many points, Moyes admitted the standings could be deemed deceptive.

"Folk think their league position is a guide but I don't think so," he said. "They play some good football and we'll need to be patient at home and make sure we do all the right things

"Roberto Martinez has done a really good job. He's got a good technical side and he's working really well with the players he has. They're a test for all teams.

"There's no gimmes in this league, whether you're at home or away, but we'll try and use our good form at Goodison to our advantage."
