EVERTON captain Phil Neville believes the onslaught of massive games the Blues face in February make it the most important month in his time at the club.
The skipper is raring to go ahead of Premier League fixtures against Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs and Manchester United, which will determine whether Everton can cling onto their dream of a top six finish.
Neville insists the squad are more confident than ever this season, as they enter the Anfield derby on Saturday on the back of a nine-game unbeaten run.
And with so much at stake in one month, the 33-year-old feels it will be the biggest period since he signed from Manchester United in 2005.
He said: 'This February will probably be the biggest month since I've been at the club because of the magnitude of each game we will be playing in.
'Each will be so important in terms of picking up points. We are coming up against these teams knowing how well we are playing and that we've got good chance of winning.
'If you had asked us two months ago, I think we might have been scared of the challenge in February. But now we've got our form back we're thinking, 'Come on let's enjoy it and not be fearful of what's ahead of us'.'
