Marouane Fellaini says that he does not consider himself a goalscorer, despite having 12 goals this season.

Marouane Fellaini has insisted that his job is not to score goals, despite finding the back of the net 12 times in all competitions this season.

The Belgian is Everton's leading goalscorer this season, with 10 goals in the Premier League.

However, the 25-year-old told the club's website: "I'm happy and when I score the goals it is a bonus for me. I'm not a striker, I'm not a goalscorer, I'm a midfielder. It's good for me but it's important to win every game.

"I have played more up front and I'm more in the box, so I have more chances to score the goals now. I try to concentrate when I'm in the box.

"I don't have an idea of how many I can score but I will try to play well. I will try to keep going and we will see."

Everton face Wigan Athletic in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup tomorrow.
