Louis Saha is hoping his goal for Everton against Fulham on Saturday will be the first of many for the club.

"That first goal in an Everton shirt has given me a real boost, as well as the team."


Quotes of the week

The former Manchester United man endured a slow start to his Toffees career, making eight appearances before ending his drought against The Cottagers.

The 30-year-old suffered an injury-prone spell while at Old Trafford and the French striker says getting off the mark has given him a boost.

"That first goal in an Everton shirt has given me a real boost, as well as the team," explained Saha.

Achieve something

"That is my main concern, to achieve something for the team and to claim three points for the first time this season at home.

"I feel I am beginning to get to grips with my new club, it has taken me a little longer than I had hoped but now I have got off the mark with the winner, I hope there will be many more to come.

"From my point of view, after so many injury problems at Manchester United, it is really good.

"It was hard to go through all that, but I am confident now and I know I picked the right club to come to because everyone is helping me to settle in and to enjoy my football again.

"I am really, really enjoying myself now and everything is starting to go well again."
