Heitinga has also been getting used to the work load facing the Blues this season.
"It is tough three games in one week but I am still standing! I am happy and I feel good at the moment," he added.
"The next game I obviously can't play in because I can't play in Europe but I would like to face Stoke at the weekend because I like to see the stadium full of Everton fans. On my last home game it was nice to see the supporters."
