Good news for Everton as it looks like the club won't have to deal with another injury absence for Leighton Baines.
The Everton penalty and free-kick specialist left the club's win against West Brom last weekend at half-time due to a back complaint. However, manager Ronald Koeman confirmed that Baines has returned to training and is in contention to face Hull City this weekend. Said Koeman: "Leighton trained this morning. Normally he would be available for the weekend. We have still have the same players out." Baines' return will make for an interesting decision along the back-line for Koeman, who brought Phil Jagielka back into the lineup last weekend at Ramiro Funes Mori's expense. Mar 17 - 6:02 AM
