Everton boss David Moyes admits facing Sunderland without two major midfield players is an advantage going into their FA Cup quarterfinal.

Lee Cattermole and Stephane Sessegnon are both suspended for the clash.

"I think Martin's introduced one or two of the boys that were in the ranks and given them confidence," he told evertontfc.com. "I think it's important that they're missing two really good players in Cattermole and Sessegnon. I do think they're two of their best players.

"But they have other good players - James McClean and Jack Colback - so they've got some good young talents and we will need to play well to win."
