Moyes - We won't buckle

Everton boss David Moyes is sure his side have enough character to overcome the pressure of competing for the Premier League's much-coveted fourth place.

The Toffees currently hold a three-point advantage over rivals Liverpool as they look to claim UEFA Champions League qualification.

However, Everton's Uefa Cup commitments - two legs against Fiorentina - mean they are forced to play catch-up in the fight for fourth.

Moyes' side showed no signs of buckling under the stain on Monday, though, when they claimed a 2-0 triumph at Manchester City.

And the Scot has voiced his belief that he has enough quality and depth at his disposal to cope with the demanding fixture list.

"We are chasing with a lot of teams and we are having a lot of games on Sundays because of the European campaign," he said in the Daily Express.


"It means a lot of teams are having the chance to get their points on the board before we play.

"We were the team under pressure on Monday to get a result, but the players certainly handled it and came up with the goods.

"It is better for us to be playing more games but I hope it doesn't catch up with us towards the end of the season.

"But the way the squad is, we're having to change one or two players in each game anyway because of injuries or tactical decisions."
