Since leaving Everton in the summer 2013, Moyes has lost each of his four Premier League games against the club, failing to score in each encounter.
"Okay, we know the first team behind us is West Brom".
"I have incredible memories of Everton but I also go back knowing I had a great chairman and great people around me", said Moyes of his former club. "We know we are strong, but it's football and we need to keep the momentum".
Goals from Idrissa Gueye and Romelu Lukaku helped the Blues maintain pressure on the Premier League's higher reaches with a 2-0 win over Sunderland.
Moyes whisked his first team squad off for a short break in NY in the wake of their 4-0 thumping by Southampton at the Stadium of Light a fortnight ago which left them firmly entrenched in the bottom three.

The Mavs are open to parting with both D-Will and center Andrew Bogut ahead of Thursday's trade deadline. Williams would have to give his consent to any trade, but he lives in Utah during the off-season.
Moyes, whose only previous return to Goodison was in April 2014 when a 2-0 defeat hastened his departure from Old Trafford, now leads his Sunderland side back to Merseyside in a desperate search for points.
I think it's well established at this stage that Romelu Lukaku isn't the worst, in fact lately he's been looking like one of the best. We've got a tough run - the next game is Man City so I'm not kidding myself - but we just have to stick with it.
And a chance for the two sides to end the game in a stalemate goes for (5.25) with the same betting company. I wanted them to take the ball a bit more and be braver in the second half and I thought we did that.
The Sunderland keeper parried an Ademola Lookman effort after seven minutes, with the ball slipping behind him, but fortunately the keeper was able to recover in time to gather on the line. We're in a couple of games where we just have to stick with it but I think Sunderland have been in a lower state than this and come from behind.
Southgate was more likely keeping tabs on Ross Barkley, who impressed, Jordan Pickford on his return to the Sunderland team and perhaps even young Tom Davies who shone for the hosts.
