Everton manager David Moyes believes his squad is as strong as it has been at any stage during his eight years with the club.

The 47-year-old, who joined from Preston in March 2002, guided Everton to eighth place last season and has taken them to as high as fourth during his spell in charge.

But speaking after Everton beat A-League newcomers Melbourne Heart 2-0 in a pre-season friendly at Etihad Stadium, Moyes said: "I think in my time at Everton we've now got as strong a squad as we've ever had so I'm looking forward to it (the coming season)."

I'm looking forward to having a season with them and seeing how it goes. But Moyes will not go public with any firm ambitions for the upcoming season.

"No, I'm not a great goal-setter," he added after seeing goals from Jack Rodwell and Louis Saha.

"I think you take the next game and you get on with it and you see where you end up.

"But we're ambitious and we want to do well and we've got a great desire to do better than what we've done in the past so we'll just try to keep it going and hopefully see where we end up."
