Saha hopes for derby boost

26 Sep 2008 - 09:41:19

Everton striker Louis Saha is hoping to mark his home debut with a goal in Saturday's Merseyside derby meeting with Liverpool.

The former Manchester United striker has drawn a blank on his first two appearances for the Toffees, but is confident of finding the net for his new club in the coming weeks.

Saha could start against the Reds on Saturday as manager David Moyes looks to shake-up a struggling side and the France striker is relishing the prospect of playing his first game at Goodison Park.

"I am looking forward to playing at Goodison against any team, but obviously the derby is brilliant," he told evertonTV.

"I am really focused on getting three points.

"We have to get some consistency. The fans are a big boost and goals will help me to win the crowd and I will try to do that.

"I am not worried about scoring because I will always give 100 per cent.

"Liverpool are a very good, organised team so it will be tough.

"There were good signs between myself and Yak (Ayegbeni Yakubu), but again it is going to take time.

"The main thing is the team. It's not just about our partnership. We are both just interested in doing our best for everyone here."
