Everton's frontline strikers are providing Roberto Martinez with a welcome headache.

The Goodison chief is set to decide whether Nikica Jelavic, Victor Anichebe or Arouna Kone will lead the line for his side at Norwich on Saturday.

But he admits it's the sort of dilemma he's happy to have.

"It’s the type of decision you always want," said Martinez. "When you have got three or four options to play up front, that’s a great position to be in as a manager.

"I’ve been really happy with how different the strikers are. I mentioned Tolis Vellios and how hard he has been working and then you have got the three senior figures in Nikica Jelavic, Arouna Kone and Victor Anichebe."

Martinez was keen to point out that each of his players will be equally vital over the course of the season.

He explained: "All are going to be important, believe me. Probably the focus is not going to be who starts on Saturday, it’s more how strong the competition is going to be throughout the campaign.

"It’s important to have effective strikers and all three are ready. It’s a great problem to have."
