Louis Saha has the capability of scoring up to 30 goals a season, according to Everton assistant manager Steve Round.
The former Manchester United striker heads into the Carling Cup tie against Hull tonight on the back of a brace in the victory over Blackburn at the weekend.
Round said: “If you look at Louis' record of goals per game, he is up there with the best of them. If he plays 30 games, he will maybe get you 15 goals.
“If he wants to, and he continues his good form, there is no reason why he cannot get 20-30 goals a season.”
Saha's double against Blackburn took his tally to six goals in all competitions.
Russian midfielder Diniyar Bilyaletdinov returns to the squad after missing the Blackburn match because of a groin problem and new arrival Lucas Neill is also available.
