Moyes believes Everton striker Saha can only improve

Everton boss David Moyes believes striker Louis Saha can get even better after his brace against Chelsea. The Frenchman struck both goals, and missed a penalty, as the Merseysiders stunned the Barclays Premier League leaders 2-1 at Goodison Park.

The 31 year old performance took his overall goal tally this season to 15 and came five days after he agreed a new two-year contract.

"Every so often Louis can do things that make you think what a good player he is," said Moyes of a player who had not scored in his four previous matches.

"At Everton we need that consistency and he'll get that with games. I think he will feel much better.

"Centre-forwards thrive on goals - goals give him confidence and I am sure after last night he will feel really good, and he deserves to because he scored two great goals.

"Maybe on another night he might have had four."
