Everton travel to Sunderland looking for a spark to reignite their recent revival.
The Toffees have slipped back down to 16th in the Barclays Premier League after a run of three games without a win and are now just one point above the bottom three ahead of the game in hand they play at the Stadium of Light.
Victory would push the Merseysiders back up to 10th and give the team's campaign a much healthier look.
"I don't think we did great against Arsenal but we had been on a relatively good run," said Moyes, whose side finished eighth after losing just two of their last 24 games last season.
"I was disappointed with the results against Blackpool and Bolton, that we didn't take more points. I think that is where the disappointment has come.
"We'd have been better off winning one and losing one - we'd have got more points."
