Moyes: Neutrals are backing Everton

Wembley hosts its first Merseyside derby in 23 years on Saturday and Everton manager David Moyes believes the rest of the country will be willing his side to get the better of Liverpool.

• ESPN Extra Time: Everton v Liverpool
• Preview: Emotional day for Merseyside
• Rewind to 1989

The FA Cup semi-final between the two will be the first clash between the local rivals at the national stadium since Liverpool triumphed in the 1989 showpiece.

That game ended 3-2 to the Reds and Saturday's is expected to be equally tight, with just a point and a place separating the two in the Premier League.

And Moyes, who has managed to vault his side above Liverpool in the ladder at a fraction of the cost, thinks anyone outside of Anfield will be backing Everton come kick-off.

''The neutral would want Everton to win,'' the Scot told a number of national newspapers. ''The neutrals look at Everton and see the way we have tried to build the club, tried to develop the team.

''It gives hope to many other clubs. I'm not saying it is the right way but it is our way. It has been done with real hard graft. It has taken a length of period - that's why we have not been in enough semi-finals and finals.''
