Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-sung is looking forward to bouncing back from last weekend's loss to Manchester City by defeating Everton on Saturday.
United suffered a 6-1 upset in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford in the Premier League and fell five points behind leaders City in the table.
Sir Alex Ferguson's side won 3-0 at Aldershot Town in the fourth round of the Carling Cup on Tuesday, and Park urges his team-mates to continue their recovery by gaining maximum points at Goodison Park.
"We have to concentrate and everyone has to turn up to show the City game has not affected us," the 30-year-old told United's official website. "We have to get over that.
"We have to put it right on the pitch and we have to prove it. It's a very important game to us and we have to go there and fight to get the points.
"It's not an easy game at Goodison Park - it's always difficult there. Just look at last season, when we were winning 3-1 and in injury-time they scored two goals."
Park also underlined the threat posed by Everton striker Louis Saha, who played for United between 2004 and 2008.
"We know his abilities are good when he's fit," said the former South Korea international.
"Now he's on form and he's on fire, so we have to be aware of that. But we can deal with it because we know him.
"As a team we have to fight, not just individually, so we can stop them as a team. Then we have to think about our attacking side as well as our defence."
