Victor Anichebe has been studying Nikica Jelavic’s movement in a bid to boost his own goals tally.

The Nigerian scored his second in as many games to set up the 3-0 win over Swansea on Saturday, just a few days after also scoring in the draw with Newcastle.

Jelavic has been prolific since arriving in January, his movement and deadly finishing a lesson for any aspiring forward.

Anichebe said: “I have been watching Nikica play and he is always in the middle of the goal. He picks the right time to link up and that is something I want to do more – be in those positions to score.

“I could probably have had a couple more today. The manager is always on at me to be in those positions. Before maybe I would not have been in there as I would have been out linking.

“Today I scored a good goal and also got in several good positions to score so I am happy with that and will go to the training ground and try to work on those aspects.

“I just try and do my best and that is the most important thing – that and the team doing well.”

Anichebe also revealed the disappointment of failing to beat Newcastle was behind their fast start at the Liberty Stadium.

Two poor decisions and some lax defending meant the Blues only drew with the Magpies in a match where they should have triumphed comfortably.

And Anichebe said: “The manager wasn’t so happy after Newcastle. It was a game we felt we should have won - not just the manager - we knew ourselves that we should have won.

“It didn’t go for us but the manager had us right up for this game. He wants to be right at the top and that is where we should be with the players we have got at the club.

“It was a really good performance to come away from home and score three goals and also keep a clean sheet. It shows how far we have come.”
