Everton are tough to beat, says Seamus Coleman

Everton midfielder Seamus Coleman says the Blues are a match for anyone in the Premier League at Goodison Park.

David Moyes' side host Manchester United on Saturday after Wednesday's 2-1 Carling Cup defeat by Chelsea.

"I think teams coming here know what they're going to get," Coleman told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"Here at Everton we never give up and we play for the 90 minutes. Teams don't get an easy game and we'll be looking to do that again on Saturday."

Manchester United's last league game was the 6-1 derby defeat by Manchester City at Old Trafford, but the Red Devils did get back to winning ways with Tuesday's 3-0 victory over Aldershot in the Carling Cup.

Coleman believes the Blues, like United, must look to banish the memories of a disappointing home defeat.

"The manager has said it's obviously disappointing for everyone but you need to get your heads back on it for Saturday," Coleman continued.

"It's a massive game in the Premier League and it's really important to us.

"Manchester United are definitely going to be at it. They'll be disappointed and we know they'll be like a wounded animal but we'll be the same.

"We're disappointed but we're at Goodison, hopefully the fans will get behind us and we'll be looking for a result."
