Tim Howard praises Everton defence

Toffees star says defensive displays have been vital to team's fine form

Goalkeeper Tim Howard says Everton's defence has been superb so far this year

Everton star Tim Howard says the club's defence has been the reason why they are enjoying such an impressive run of results.

The Toffees have won five of their last nine Barclays Premier League matches and have let in only six goals in the process.

"As a goalkeeper, when the guys in front of you are limiting chances like that, you know goals aren't going to be scored," said Tim.

"We felt like we've been pretty solid lately. We've had a good run since Christmas and we really felt like that started defensively, and we've been scoring goals as well."
