Martinez expects Stones on the pitch when Everton face United

Berahino Stones

Everton boss Roberto Martinez expects to have John Stones back available for Saturday’s Barclays Premier League home clash with Manchester United. The 21-year-old defender Stones has missed the Toffees’ last two games because of a knee injury and was also not involved for England during the international break.

Martinez, quoted on Everton’s official website, said on Wednesday with a view to the weekend’s contest at Goodison Park:

“I think he should be ready.

“Remember that John has been having a lot of quality work at Finch Farm and it will be a matter of just getting that match fitness.

“We have still got three very important days ahead of that fixture in terms of preparation so we’ll get a better idea on Friday of where John is.

“I would say medically he is ready now. He’s been joining the group and from a medical point of view I don’t think there is a concern or worry.”

Everton are also set to have Seamus Coleman returning to their team on Saturday. The fullback, sidelined recently by a hamstring complaint, played his first match in a month when he turned out for the Republic of Ireland against Poland on Sunday.
