Everton captain Phil Neville hopes Louis Saha can stay fit and help the side to glory for the remainder of the season.
Saha made his return to action against Newcastle last weekend after three months out with a hamstring injury and he came off the bench to score the clinching second goal in the 2-0 win over West Brom on Saturday.
The former Fulham and Manchester United striker has seen his career blighted by a series of injuries over the last few years and Neville is praying the Frenchman finally gets an extended run of games under his belt.
Neville is a big admirer of Saha and believes the forward can give Everton an extra dimension if he can steer clear of injury.
"He's a match-winner and if we can get him on to the field 20 times, we have 20 good chances of winning a game," Neville told The Sun.
Fitness"If he stays fit he can go as far as he wants in the game, but the problem has been keeping him fit.
"When you see his physique his calves are bigger than my thighs.He's a freak of nature and has everything in his locker. We're all hoping this is his time."
Toffees boss David Moyes also feels Saha has a lot to offer if he can stay fit.
"We have to factor in the injuries but there was a period when he was as good as anything in the Premier League and we hope he still has those moments," noted Moyes.
