Everton captain Phil Neville admits being injured has him climbing the walls.
Neville believes he's still eight weeks away from a first team return.
And the Blues skipper has admitted he's as baffled as everyone else at the sheer amount of long term injuries in the last 12 months.
"It is strange at the moment as the players aren't just picking up a little hamstring tightness or calf strains," he told evertonfc.com. "We are picking up serious injuries like cruciate knee ligament injuries. We have got three of them at the moment!
"It is so disappointing because at the moment we've got 11 or 12 fit players and those players are working their socks off" continues Neville. "They are playing a lot of games in a short space of time, there's no recovery time for them.
"They are actually playing really well but they are just not getting their rewards at the moment."
