Everton boss Moyes: You must watch Anelka for full 90

Everton boss Dave Moyes admits they'll have to watch Bolton Wanderers striker Nicolas Anelka for the full 90 minutes tomorrow.

"I think there are periods in the games when he can seem quiet and then he can come alive," said Moyes.

"But maybe we could say the same about Yakubu. But that's what good goalscorers and good centre-forwards do."

Anelka has now netted ten Premier League goals this season, which is slightly less than half of Bolton's total, and he has been a thorn in Everton's side wherever he has been, scoring for Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and his current side.

"He needs the supply to finish, as do all good strikers," said Moyes. "We respect Anelka and we will try to stop the supply if we can."
