Everton's injured captain Phil Neville insists the Toffees will bounce back from their Europa League humiliation in Lisbon.
Everton face a quick turnaround and a tough Barclays Premier League clash at Bolton on Sunday, still struggling with nine players doubtful because of injury. Neville will not be back from his knee problem until Christmas but still travelled to Portugal on Thursday for what became a disastrous 5-0 defeat by Benfica.
But Neville said: "When the chips are down and our backs are to the wall and people are writing us off, that is when this club gels together - and we will do that, I am sure of it."
He added: "Everyone is disappointed after Lisbon, but we have to win on Sunday now to put that result behind us.
"They had world-class players, but I'm sure when we get them back to Goodison and we get everybody fit - because we had a really inexperienced side out - it will be a different game."
Everton suffered their worst European defeat but are already planning their revenge in the return fixture.
"You will see a different Everton side next time," Neville predicted.
"I am convinced we can beat them.
"The scoreline tells you we made five mistakes. We can't make those mistakes against top European sides if we want to progress and win this competition - which we do."
