Jose Mourinho says he expects Everton to go on the offensive against Chelsea on Sunday.
The Premiership meeting at Goodison Park is live on Sky Sports 1, and the Portuguese boss does not expect the men from Merseyside to shy away and play for a draw against his reigning champions.
"They have good attacking players and I don't think David Moyes is the kind of guy just to defend," said Mourinho.
"They attack you. They are a dangerous team."
Chelsea can cut Manchester United's lead at the top of the Premiership to two points before The Red Devils take on West Ham at 4pm on Sunday, and Mourinho wants his men to find the net more regularly as they attempt to chase down Sir Alex Ferguson's charges.
"We are not scoring a lot of goals for what we produce," Mourinho added.
"We have a lot of chances. The posts are against us. I think one day we have to score more goals."
Mourinho also confirmed that Carlo Cudicini will miss the trip to Goodison, meaning Hilario is likely to continue in goal, but Ricardo Carvalho could return to the team after missing the midweek win over Newcastle.
"Carlo is improving, but not ready. Joe Cole is out, John Obi [Mikel] is almost good but still out and Ricardo is a possibility to play."
