The Toffees beat Blackpool 2-0 on Saturday to set up a date with Sunderland in the last eight of the competition, and the Scottish coach is talking up his team’s chances.
“You never know – you just have to see what comes along,” he told Mirror Football.
“We are desperately trying to get to the final and win it, but everybody else is saying the same.
“From my first day here, I’ve always wanted to get to the finals of cup competitions,” he stated.
Moyes also praised on-loan attacker Royston Drenthe, who he feels is getting to grips with English football.
“I thought he played well and had one of his better games. Bits of his play were very good and he finished a good move with a great finish.
“I think he is learning and adapting. There is another side to the game over here – you have to do your work on the defensive side and he is getting better and beginning to understand it a little bit better.
“But really and truthfully, what you want is for him to get on the ball as often as he can out wide, near the front line, hoping that he creates or scores a goal. That’s why you have him and that is why we brought him here.
“We have found the use of Royston better at home sometimes than away from home. But he is the sort of player where, if you are a supporter, you think ‘good, I’m going to see a dribbler, someone who takes people on’.
“In years gone by, that is what people have enjoyed,” Moyes concluded.
