With three goals in five matches so far this season, Nikica Jelavic is repaying Steve Bruce's faith in the former Everton man.
Steve Bruce was widely panned for his purchases of Shane Long and Jelavic last January but after Long yielded a massive short term profit, Jelavic has provided the goals that the manager hoped he was getting for his money. With three goals in five Premier League matches this season Jelavic more closely resembles the player who won PL Player of the Month in April of 2012 while playing for Everton. The 2012-13 season brought a deep slump but he seems to have come out the other side and should be considered a solid starter in unique ownership leagues and leagues with restrictive salary caps.
