Everton boss David Moyes hailed the influence of Nikica Jelavic after the striker's double earned the Toffees a 2-2 draw at Norwich.
The former Rangers man poked Everton ahead with a majestic flick from close range and added a second in-between Jonny Howson's equaliser by cleverly turning home before Grant Holt grabbed a share of the spoils for the Canaries.
Jelavic's presence up front caused Norwich havoc throughout the game and his double will do much to boost confidence in the Merseysiders' ranks ahead of Saturday's FA Cup semi-final against Liverpool.
"Jelavic scored two really good goals," Everton boss David Moyes said.
"He's come in and made a big difference to us. We've been needing that type of centre-forward - somebody who can score, lead the line and threaten the opposition and he's certainly been doing that. He's a steely character with real presence and he sees scoring as part of his job.
"He also helps to link us up. He's given all the players a massive boost. That's what happens when you bring in a player who scores regularly. We couldn't score in the first half of the season but he makes us look as if we are going to do that more often."
