Standard Liege manager Laszlo Boloni admits he's disappointed to have lost Marouane Fellaini to UEFA Cup opponents Everton.

He said: "I have spoken to Marouane and there are no hard feelings - I've wished him well for the future. But yes, his departure has been a blow.

"We're coming here expecting a very difficult game. If we win that will be great but a draw is okay.

"Everton should be considered the favourites for the match."
