Marouane Fellaini has claimed he attempted a header as he set up Everton’s first goal in a thumping 3-0 victory at Swansea that keeps Everton in contention at the right end of the Premier League table.
The Sky Sports cameras seemed to show Fellaini push the ball with his arm to Victor Anichebe who slotted Everton in front as they continue their good early season form.
“It was a great game, the team played well and we scored three goals so everybody’s happy. It was a good job today by Everton.” Fellaini said.
Asked about his part in the opening goal, the Belgian added: “I tried to put my head on it.”
“This season I play more in the front so I try to score goals in the box, and at the moment it’s good for the team.
“At the moment the players have good confidence and we’ll try again in our next game on Tuesday to win against Leeds.”
