Victor Anichebe was delighted to see Nikica Jelavic find the net against Manchester City and insisted Everton now need the Croatian to find goalscoring form – having gone over three months without a goal in the league prior Man City.

Speaking to evertontv, Anichebe said: “The one [goal] from Ossie was great but the one from Jela, for me that was even better. We need Jela to get back scoring and he got a bit of luck, which he needed.

“I’m really happy for him because he has been working ever so hard. It was a good all-round team performance, so I’m happy.”

Anichebe also revealed how a presentation from David Moyes helped to restore some belief to the team following the previous week’s disappointment against Wigan Athletic.

“The manager showed us a great video of how we had been playing all season so we couldn’t be too down,” added the 24-year-old. “That helped us – we actually saw how well we had been playing.”
