Victor Anichebe: Delighted to see Nikica Jelavic back on the scoresheet

The Croatia international netted the second goal of the contest in the final minute of the game at Goodison Park, his first since he found the target in the 2-1 win over Tottenham on 9 December.

"The one (goal) from Ossie (Leon Osman) was great but the one from Jela, for me that was even better," Anichebe told the club's official website.

"We need Jela to get back scoring and he got a bit of luck, which he needed.

"I'm really happy for him because he has been working ever so hard. It was a good all-round team performance, so I'm happy."

Anichebe also revealed that manager David Moyes showed them highlights of their season so far to try and revive spirits following their disappointing display in the 3-0 home defeat to Wigan in the FA Cup.

"The manager showed us a great video of how we had been playing all season so we couldn't be too down," he added.

"That helped us - we actually saw how well we had been playing."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
