Everton legend Graeme Sharp insists the goalscoring form of “fantastic finisher” Cenk Tosun can keep the Blues looking up the Premier League table for the final seven matches of the season.
Sharp, the Club’s record post-war goalscorer with 160 goals in 447 appearances, has been impressed by the Turkey international, who took his tally to four goals in three games with a brace in Saturday’s 2-1 win at Stoke City.
That run was kick-started by his first Blues goal away at Burnley at the beginning of this month, and Sharp believes the 26-year-old will now be looking to take himself to double figures in the remaining weeks of the season.
“I think the two goals [against Stoke] were excellent,” said Sharp in an evertontv interview available exclusively to Season Ticket holders and Official Members. “The first one he’s followed up and stuck it away well, the second one was a header which maybe the goalkeeper should have saved but all he can do is get on the end of things and ask the question. It was a good cross in from Theo Walcott and a good header, so I’ve been really impressed with him.
“Talking to the people in and around the training ground, the one thing they said straight away was that he was a fantastic finisher, and I think the goals he’s scored recently have shown you that. He scores all sorts of goals, so hopefully that’s good for the future and we can kick on from now.
"I think he will want to finish the season strongly now and, if that’s the case, it will push us further up the table.
“He’s settled now, I think he’s getting used to the conditions, but he’s been excellent and can be happy with the start he’s made.”
