Everton striker Louis Saha is confident that his elusive first goal for the club will come sooner rather than later.

Saha has made seven appearances for the Toffees this season without finding the net but the Frenchman is remaining positive.

He told the club's official website: "I feel a lot better now I've settled, I feel more confident and hopefully now that first goal will come.

"I think the Yak (Yakubu Aiyegbeni) and I have a similar quality and we can put defences under pressure. I'm looking forward to playing many games alongside him."

Saha joined the club from Manchester United in the summer. The 30-year-old was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson for £12million from Fulham in 2004 but ultimately his time at Old Trafford was plagued by injury.

The striker still managed to rack up a total of 88 appearances scoring 28 goals along the way.

Saha featured against his old club on Saturday as Everton battled back to gain a deserved point and he believes that the squad are finally starting to gel.

He said: "I'm delighted with the way we played against Manchester United. When you play against a big team like this with the quality players you have to match them in every department.

"There were definitely some glimpses of what we can do. We've not had the best start because obviously we've got some new players and we've taken time to settle.

"But now we can show physically we're a lot better and that we have a better understanding."

Everton face another one of Saha's former clubs in Fulham at Goodison Park on Saturday.
