Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini believes the club's injury woes are easing at the best time possible.
The Toffees' Premier League clash with Liverpool was postponed last weekend due to the Reds' participation in the Carling Cup final but the enforced break has allowed a number of key players time to get back to fitness.
David Moyes is set to welcome Jack Rodwell, Leon Osman, Phil Jagielka, Nikica Jelavic, Victor Anichebe and Tim Cahill back to his squad in the next few weeks.
With a trip to QPR and an FA Cup quarter-final with Sunderland lying in wait in the next fortnight Fellaini feels the return to fitness of so many key players is a timely boost for the Merseysiders.
He told the club's official website:"It's a good time to be getting players back and they are important players too - Jagielka, Ossie [Leon Osman], Jack Rodwell, Seamus [Coleman] was back last week. It's important the team has a lot of players, it's important for the cup and the league.
"They're important and when they come in they help the team. They have a lot of experience, they are international quality players and they're fresh too because they've had a long rest.
"You also know they're going to give 100 per cent because it's a long time since they've played and they will want to play again."
