Everton boss Moyes targets first clean sheet

Everton boss Dave Moyes admits he's seeking a clean sheet - the first for the season - from his players in tonight's UEFA Cup clash with Standard Liege. "The players have been really reliable, we have good defenders but maybe one or two early mistakes have cost us goals and we hope we can get rid of them and get back to the clean sheets," he said. "There have been a lot of goals scored in the Premier League. At this particular time it looks as if we are having to score three to win, last season there were lots of games we won 1-0 and we had a strong base from that.

"There have been a lot of goals scored in the Premier League. At this particular time it looks as if we are having to score three to win, last season there were lots of games we won 1-0 and we had a strong base from that.

"It is good if we win 3-2 but it is also good if we win 1-0, so I am looking to tighten up and certainly in this game not concede any goals."
