Howard: Everton attacking options best I have seen

Tim Howard is excited about the attacking options at Everton this season.

Tim Cahill grabbed a hat-trick against Norwich City on the weekend, with Diniyar Bilyaletdinov adding another.

And with Louis Saha, Jermaine Beckford and Jack Rodwell also looking threatening in front of goal, and Yakubu still to return, the USA star told evertonfc.com: "This is probably one of the strongest attacking line-ups we've had in my time here.

"One of the things the gaffer does very well is brings in good strikers. He always has - even when I wasn't here but just watching Everton. We certainly have a good stable now and they feed off each other. Not just in games but in training. They always want to outdo the next guy.

"Forwards are greedy and they want that glory which is good. You need that. The Premier League, more than any other in the world, is all about goals.

"We've done a good job over the last few years of creating chances. But the more times in games we can get on the front foot and be in a winning position the better.

"The team that normally goes ahead in the premier league wins.

"The more goalscorers we have on the better."
