* FOLLOW us on Twitter for all the latest EFC news here[LNB]EVERTON striker Louis Saha has vowed to work tirelessly in a bid to end his nine-month Premier League goal drought.[LNB]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.[LNB]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.[LNB] 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.[LNB]'The season has been really hard for me,' said Saha, who top scored for the Blues with 15 goals last season.[LNB]'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.[LNB]'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.[LNB]'I would rather not be sharp and scoring goals with tap-ins and so forth but it doesn't happen like that.[LNB]'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.[LNB]'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.'
