Anichebe - Jelavic needed a rest

Published 1 Comments

Everton striker Victor Anichebe believes he has learned greatly from fellow forward Nikica Jelavic, but sees no irony in the fact he has replaced the Croatian in the team.

Manager David Moyes said Anichebe has earned his place on merit - and his fifth goal in eight league starts in the 3-3 draw against Aston Villa on Saturday appeared to back that up - as Jelavic has lost his way in front of goal with his last top-flight goal almost two months ago.

But Anichebe said: "I wouldn't look too far into him not playing. Nikica has been unbelievable since he came to us and his record speaks for itself (18 goals in 45 appearances)."
