Moyes: Everton fans can rattle Sporting Lisbon

David Moyes is counting on Everton's fans to make a difference against Europa League opponents Sporting Lisbon.

Moyes says during crucial games the Goodison faithful have the ability to lift the team and wants them to make the difference in the first leg against Sporting Lisbon on Tuesday.

"I enjoy the knock out stages as do the fans," Moyes said in his pre-match press briefing.

"The group stages you enjoy in a different way because you get a few games to have a go at it but the do-or-die games are what European football is all about.

"The game the other night against Chelsea showed you how important the crowd are here and European nights at Goodison are always really special.

"We have to make it a difficult place for Sporting to come to and make sure they struggle to get any form of result at all."
