Osman Urges Goalscoring Spread

Leon Osman insists the Everton must share goalscoring responsibilities throughout the team.

Although the Blues have had 10 different goalscorers already this term, Marouane Fellaini has been the side's main source of goals in recent weeks - netting five of his team's last six to take his tally to eight for the campaign.

Nikica Jelavic has five strikes in all competitions, while Kevin Mirallas, Victor Anichebe, Steven Naismith and Osman have three apiece.

And despite Fellaini's performances being central to the Blues' impressive attacking displays, the recently-capped England man says everyone needs to chip in.

He told evertontv: "It's always important to try and spread the goals, but at the same time you're going to get a period in the season where it's tough and you need your players playing up the pitch to score the goals. Felli's certainly been doing that for us lately."

"He's a massive player for us at the minute, that's evident in the way he's playing and the way we play.

"We're not a one-man team, we've got a number of good players this year. I think it's shown in our football this year how we're developing as a team and that we're becoming a better footballing team."

With Tottenham Hotspur next to visit Goodison on Sunday afternoon, Osman admits he is relishing a third high-profile encounter in 10 days following 1-1 draws with Arsenal and Premier League champions Manchester City.

He said: "It's another tough test, of course. Tottenham are one of the better teams in the league. They were unlucky not to get a Champions League place last year after finishing fourth, so it's important that we're on our game this weekend for a difficult match."
