Everton captain back in action

Everton have received a much needed boost to their midfield with the possible return of Phil Neville for the weekend match up with Fulham.

The Liverpool Daily Post are reporting that David Moyes will be looking to make Neville available after adequately recovering from a hamstring strain suffered at St James' Park against Newcastle.

Currently sitting mid table, but only six points from the relegation zone, the Toffees face Fulham in a match which will determine how difficult it is for the club to stay in the Premiership flight.


If Everton were to be relegated, it would be only the third time in history for the club. Everton are currently the second side behind Arsenal to spend the most time in the top flight.

But Everton have more statistics on their side going into the weekend than a small amount of relegations. They also have a 100 percent winning record against Fulham at home, and that coupled with Neville’s return, leaves Everton midfielder Tony Hibbert with the belief that the Toffees can take away three points this weekend.

“It should be a good game,” Hibbert said.

“It probably does help a bit when you know you have a good record against a team.”
