Pienaar And Saha Step Up Their Game

For Evertonians it is only a matter of days now before the big day and for the players there is just one more match to negotiate. With the distraction of the FA Cup Final looming large it would have been easy for Everton's players to switch off in recent weeks and coast through to the end of the season. This temptation will have increased when they saw team-mate Phil Jagielka's cup dreams dashed by an awkward fall against Manchester City last month. But credit to the players and the motivational skills of David Moyes as his side have picked up points and risen to fifth with one game remaining in the 2008/2009 Premier League season. The question of who will start at Wembley won’t keep Moyes awake at night - there simply aren’t enough fit players to make it difficult. But the one conundrum Moyes might have is, with Jo cup-tied, whether to start with Louis Saha. The former Manchester United man has again struggled with injuries this year and has had more of an impact from the bench. But two goals against West Ham on Saturday in a 3-1 win, despite having a generally quiet game, may force Moyes’ hand.
