Martyn backing Anichebe to make big Everton impact

Former Everton goalkeeper Nigel Martyn is backing Victor Anichebe to be a great striker for the Blues.

"Although he is still very young, he has terrific physical presence and showed last week against Metalist Kharkiv that he is improving at a rate of knots," Martyn told

"His influence in the second half helped swing the game back in Everton's favour.

"People will compare him with Ayegbeni Yakubu for obvious reasons but I don't see any reason why Victor can't go on to become a top striker in years to come.

"He is playing well at the minute and I'm sure he'll be a tremendous asset for Everton."
