Just as Everton were beginning to benefit from a fully fit Antolin Alcaraz the defender suffers a serious shoulder injury during the draw with Swansea which is likely to side line the player for a "long time."
Alcaraz has struggled since his arrival back in 2013 - a series of niggling muscular problems restricted the defender to just five starts in his first season but having returned to full fitness in October the Paraguayan international looked to be the preferred option [ahead of Distin] starting the last three Premier League games. With Everton competing on a number of fronts - including Europe - Roberto Martinez will need to consider his options and the prolonged absence of Alcaraz could provide young defender Tyias Browning with an opportunity to stake his claim with central defender John Stones still recovering from ankle surgery.
