Everton boss David Moyes admits his side's Capital One Cup defeat earlier this season influenced his selection for the resounding 5-1 FA Cup win at npower League Two side Cheltenham.

Moyes made several changes for the game against Leeds and was disappointed when his side were beaten 2-1. But he fielded a virtual full strength line-up at the Abbey Business Stadium and goals from Nikica Jelavic, Leighton Baines, Leon Osman, Seamus Coleman and Marouane Fellaini secured victory.

Moyes said: "I don't know if it was the strongest Premier League side put out this weekend or not but it could be folly if I had picked up injuries. Then it would have been made to look a bad decision. But I was disappointed when we lost our League Cup tie to Leeds United. I gave a few players a go and I didn't think we came up to scratch."
