Everton midfielder Osman: Rodwell, Gosling suffered from workload

Leon Osman believes Everton youngsters Jack Rodwell and Dan Gosling suffered earlier this season due to their heavy workload.

Both players came off the bench to score in Saturday's famous win over Manchester United.

"Everyone knows about our injuries at the start of the season and probably a bit too much was put on these young lads' shoulders too early," said Osman.

"It is good that they have been able to have a break and take a bit of a step back.

"Once you do that, you see what quality players they are."
