EVERTON striker Louis Saha has vowed to work tirelessly in a bid to end his nine-month Premier League goal drought.

The Frenchman has endured a frustrating campaign so far and only has a solitary strike in August's Carling Cup win over Huddersfield to show for his efforts.

Saha, who was sidelined for three weeks by a calf injury he picked up on international duty in September, hasn't found the net in eight league appearances this season.

The 32-year-old last scored in the league when he bagged a memorable double in the 2-1 win over Chelsea at Goodison in February and he's desperate to rediscover his touch ahead of next Monday's trip to Sunderland.

'The season has been really hard for me,' said Saha, who top scored for the Blues with 15 goals last season.

'I have had my share of injuries and it has been difficult. When I have had chances to play I don't think I have had much luck. When I have had sights of goal then shots have been blocked or deflected.

'I feel sharp and am a positive person within myself and I have confidence that when the timing is right and I am able to give my all then it will come together. It is important to get that first goal, it gets you underway.

'I would rather not be sharp and scoring goals with tap-ins and so forth but it doesn't happen like that.

'I will work harder to get luck back on my side as that is often the way it goes and I will continue to give my all for the team.

'We need results and I will try everything. I will work as hard as I can to help give the team three points as we need to get going again.'
