Osman: Everton must lift goal scoring burden from Fellaini

Everton midfielder Leon Osman admits they need to relieve the goal scoring burden of Marouane Fellaini.

Fellaini's performances being central to the Blues' impressive attacking displays, the recently-capped England man says everyone needs to chip in.

He told evertontv: "It's always important to try and spread the goals, but at the same time you're going to get a period in the season where it's tough and you need your players playing up the pitch to score the goals. Felli's certainly been doing that for us lately.

"He's a massive player for us at the minute, that's evident in the way he's playing and the way we play.

"We're not a one-man team, we've got a number of good players this year. I think it's shown in our football this year how we're developing as a team and that we're becoming a better footballing team."
