'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Martinez pleased with returning players

Everton could be on the verge of receiving a boost ahead of the Tottenham match on Sunday.

Roberto Martinez has suffered with a number of injuries of late, Sylvain Distin and Phil Jagielka both have returned recently and thankfully have shown no ill effects of their return to action.

But there could be even better news with Seamus Coleman in contention to return against Spurs, whilst both Gerard Deulofeu and Lacina Traore are edging closer to match fitness.

'They are very important players and we have had good news on them. I would say Seamus is probably in the right category (to return). Martinez told evertonfc.com.

He continued: 'Gerard is back from Spain, is training and is really excited and enthusiastic about getting back. Obviously we will have to assess him to see how quickly we can get him match fit. From a medical point of view, he is fit and that's really positive and we have to make sure we give him the right doses of work.

'We're really excited at having those two back. Sylvain Distin and Phil Jagielka came through the game against Aston Villa with no problems. We are getting important numbers alongside Lacina Traore, who is working well on a daily basis and getting close to being ready to make his full debut.'


Everton's clash with Tottenham at White Hart Lane is live for viewers in the UK on Sky Sports.

Everton and Spurs go into the game separated by a single point.

Everton currently hold fifth place in the Premier League on 45 points, whilst Spurs are sixth on 44 points.

Both sides still have a strong interest in UEFA Champions League qualification with fourth placed Liverpool in touching distance on 47 points.
