Gibson nears Everton return

Darron Gibson and Arouna Kone could be set to return to the Everton squad for Saturday's trip to West Ham - but Steven Pienaar is doubtful.

Striker Romelu Lukaku is also in line for his Blues bow following his deadline-day loan switch from Chelsea.

Midfielder Gibson has yet to feature this season due to a knee problem, while Kone was absent for last weekend's win over Chelsea.

"I'm very happy with how Darron Gibson and Arouna Kone have progressed with their injuries and they could make the squad this weekend," Martinez told a press conference on Thursday.

"Steven Pienaar is 50-50, as he has recovered very well but we need to be careful.

"Romelu is ready to be available. He's played a lot of football this season and he's got used to his teammates in the past week and trained very well.

"Antolin Alcaraz (hamstring) is still recovering and won't be available. But, other than that, everyone is fit and available for the game.

"I was really pleased with the level on Saturday and now we have to use all our options in the squad and be as strong as we can. We've got three games in a short space of time, so we need everyone ready and available."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
