Everton centre-half Phil Jagielka has backed under-fire striker Nikica Jelavic to rediscover his golden touch in front of goal.
The Croatian striker made a great start to his Everton career after joining last January from Glasgow Rangers but has found goals difficult to come by of late with just one in eight games for the 27-year-old.
England defender Jagielka believes it is only a matter of time before he starts scoring again and he has warned rivals that the side will be unstoppable when he does.
He told the Echo: "Everything was working for him when he came and now the person who is playing up front with him - Felli - everything is coming off for him.
"We'd love to have both Felli and Jela firing on all cylinders but it's not like Jela is getting into four or five good positions and missing easy chances every game.
"It is just not breaking for him.
"We know he'll come good and, at the moment we're doing ok without his goals so when he does hit the ground running again he'll make us even stronger."
