Everton skipper Neville delighted with Mirallas return

Everton skipper Phil Neville was delighted with Kevin Mirallas' return for their draw at Southampton.

The Belgian had made just one appearance since mid-November due to a troublesome hamstring problem but came off the bench to play the final 25 minutes of Monday's goalless draw at Southampton.

Neville told evertontv: "It was great to see him [Mirallas] back. It showed when Kevin came on, when their defenders dropped off a little bit, that they knew there was a player with pace.

"He brought others into the game. I thought Victor Anichebe made a huge change as well, causing them problems, and that was important for us."
