Ayegbeni Yakubu has promised there is plenty more to come from him and the rest of the Everton team this season.

The Nigeria striker scored his first goal since April to secure a 1-0 win over Stoke and maintain the Toffees' revival on Sunday.

He said: "As a striker sometimes you have good chances and you don't take them but I was there at the right time and took it really good. It is really good to score goals. It had been six or seven games and I hadn't scored, so to get a goal will give me more confidence and I am going to score goals."

He added: "I think my fitness is really good, better than last season.

"Hopefully I can score goals and help the team, and the team can achieve something this season.

"It is not going to be easy but we want to play in Europe next season.

"Hopefully we will start doing the right thing on the pitch and we will get into Europe - but there is still a long way to go."
