With Kevin Mirallas set to miss extended time due to a hamstring injury, Aiden McGeady looks set to continue as a regular in Roberto Martinez's XI.
McGeady started the season occupying what would normally be Steven Pienaar's spot, but the South African is nearing fitness and McGeady had served Martinez well in the opening weeks, which would normally create a selection dilemma. However, now that the Toffees are short of another wide man, McGeady can fill in for Mirallas and continue being an intriguing budget option in the Yahoo game. He can currently be had for 4.51m.

Everton got all they could handle from a resilient Leicester City side who matched the Toffees goal-for-goal in a very entertaining 2-2 draw at King Power Stadium.

With Kevin Mirallas on the bench, Aiden McGeady was given a deserved start and built on a productive preseason when Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel was caught way out of net in an effort to block a Sylvain Distin shot. The deflection landed at McGeady's feet and he scooped a brilliant shot perfectly into the far corner for a certain "goal of the week" nomination. Leicester would equalize moments later. Everton were most effective down the left and that would bear fruit for their second goal but Leicester once again matched it late on to split the result. Everton shook off their "slow start" reputation last season under Roberto Martinez, but with Arsenal and Chelsea the next two opponents, the trend may be back.

27 year old Aiden McGeady has signed a four and a half year contract for Everton, completing a transfer from Spartak Moscow.

The Irish international has a reputation for his temper, last year he served a six match ban for hitting an opposing player, making a lewd gesture to the stadium crowd, then trashing said stadium's dressing room. Not to mention he was suspended by his own coach this season. His frustration materialized on the stat sheet, scoring just 13 times in 93 appearance in the Russian Premier League. McGeady is best used out wide and should figure into the selection mix for a spot normally occupied by either Steven Pienaar or Kevin Mirallas, likely Mirallas on the right, but he probably won't overtake either of them.
