Everton assistant manager Steve Round says there is no issue with striker Louis Saha and expects the Frenchman to play a key role for the Blues this term.

Some media reports following Saturday’s 3-1 victory over Wigan Athletic focussed on tweets from the French striker following his omission from the matchday squad.

Round insists the matter has been dealt with by manager David Moyes and points out that spending time on the sidelines is something you have to get used to as a player.

"You can understand the frustrations of people when they are not selected or not picked, you can only pick 11 unfortunately," Round told

"Sometimes you have to live with that, that's part of being a professional. I'm afraid it's part of the job, they get a paid a lot of money and work very hard on the training ground so they are ready when called upon.

"It's the manager's decision who he picks and whether he thinks this team can win or that team can win and they just have to get on with it. There has been no big thing made of it internally it has all been very quietly done.

"Louis is a terrific player who I'm sure will bounce back and feature for Everton throughout this season and come on and play and get us results - I've no doubt about that."
