MOYES: NEVER A GOOD TIME
Boss is refusing to take solace from Spurs' opening day defeat.
David Moyes is refusing to take solace from the fact Tottenham suffered an unexpected defeat on the opening day as the Blues prepare for their first away outing of the new season.
Martin Jol's side lost to a last-minute Michael Chopra goal at Sunderland on the opening day, just hours before everton secured three points against Wigan.
The two sides finished fifth and sixth in the table last season and are tipped to battle it out in the top third of the table again this term.
But Moyes is not getting carried away by the fact Everton could find themselves six points ahead of Spurs on Tuesday night.
He said: "In the Barclays Premier League I don't think there is ever a good time to catch anybody. This is their first home game of the season and that in itself will give them a lift. We know we have got to go there and be hard to beat and put on a good show.
"We had good games last year. We played well at Tottenham and they played well at Goodison last year. The games have been tight but good sides. Tottenham have invested heavily in the market to improve again so we know it is going to be a really difficult game."
Everton secured their first victory over Tottenham at White Hart Lane for 21 years last term.
Extended highlights of the game will be available on evertonTV from midnight on Tuesday (UK only).
