We’re Spurred on by our neigh­bours

de­fender San­tos re­turned from in­jury and he be­lieves the fresh legs will be cru­cial in the run-in.

He added: “We should have play­ers com­ing back from in­jury now, so we’ll be get­ting some fresh legs, look­ing to be strong for the rest of the sea­son.”

Johnny Heitinga in­sists Ever­ton will not be think­ing of a pos­si­ble all-mersey FA Cup semi when Arse­nal visit Good­i­son.

The Tof­fees will set up a Wem­b­ley semi-final with neigh­bours Liver­pool if they over­come Sun­der­land in next Tues­day’s re­play on Wear­side.

But David Moyes’ troops face tough league games against Arse­nal and Swansea be­fore then.

And Heitinga in­sists all the fo­cus is on stop­ping a five-match win­ning run by the Gun­ners in the league.

Ever­ton’s Dutch ace said: “It’s a busy pe­riod for us. But as a foot­ball player you want to play games.

“Arse­nal is an­other big game and the fo­cus is now on them.”
