Jelavic is still having plenty of chances but hasn’t finished as many. I’d be more worried if he wasn’t getting the chances.
Seamus Coleman, despite his error for Fulham’s equaliser last Saturday, has improved significantly this season. He isn’t quite the bull in a china shop that maybe he once was.
As you gain experience, which is from playing more games, you know when to turn, you know when to run and you know when to take people on or simply keep a move going.
It’s part of the natural progression, it’s how players mature.
Supporters will often see a player who comes into a team, makes a big impression and then wonder what’s happened to them six months later.
That can be down to many things; adjusting to yourself, the players adjusting to you, the opponents adjusting to your dangers. That happens all the time.
But Coleman is clearly a lad who is prepared to learn and prepared to listen.
Everton need to get out of the habit of drawing games, and Darron Gibson is somebody who continues to be missed.
He is an unsung player. Players who come from United who have been there since they were young are well schooled and are taught everything about the game.
Even the good attacking players who don’t make it at Old Trafford know defensively what is expected from them. I’d be surprised if Moyes has taught Gibson much.
You need players like Gibson in your team. When you play in his position, a lot of the time it’s simply about being in position, being in the right place to protect the defence. Everton have missed that.
