Everton defender Jagielka says goals will flow for Jelavic

Everton defender Phil Jagielka is confident Nikica Jelavic will rediscover his scoring form.

Everton defender Phil Jagielka is confident Nikica Jelavic will rediscover his scoring form.

The Croat has been less prolific this season but Jagielka insists it's nothing to worry about - citing the form of Marouane Fellaini as more than equal recompense.

"Everything was working for him when he came and now the person who is playing up front with him – Felli – everything is coming off for him,” said Everton's stand-in captain to evertonfc.com.

“Look up at Newcastle, Demba Ba was on fire then Papiss Cisse came and Ba didn’t score. This season it is the opposite way round, that is the way cycles go.

“He knows we’re supporting him and he’ll get frustrated on the days it doesn’t happen but we know he’ll come good. And, at the moment we’re doing okay without his goals so when he does hit the ground running again he’ll make us even stronger.”
