Moyes faces a dilemma over his squad selection as he juggles the twin priorities of trying to reach a second successive European semi-final while avoiding the threat of relegation from the Premier League.
“I’m not going to give too much away, but obviously we have a lot of important games,” Moyes said. “I’m sure Gent have a lot of important games too, it’s not just us. We are in a position in the Premier League where we have to keep trying to win our games.
“But the chance to get to the semi-finals is something we have to try to take every chance we get and I don’t want to give it up easily.”
