New Everton signing John Heitinga has tipped captain Phil Neville to come back from his current knee injury.
The former England international is set for a lengthy lay-off after injuring his knee ligaments against Fulham at the weekend but Heitinga expects him to come back stronger.
He said: "I was sitting on the bench and I saw the tackle and the first thing that went through my head was that maybe I was coming on, as it was a terrible tackle.
"It's never nice if a player is injured. Phil is a strong player and he will make it(back)."
