Everton ended its horrendous seven-match winless streak in league play with a 2-1 win against Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.
Roberto Martinez has been under extreme scrutiny during the winless run, which dates back to a 3-1 win against Aston Villa on March 1, but the win is unlikely to do much to change his future at the club. It was Tom Cleverley who starred for the Toffees, scoring the first goal in just the seventh minute after taking a pass from Ross Barkley at the edge of the penalty box. But Everton conceded an equalizer just two minutes later to Bournemouth's Marc Pugh, who beat Tim Howard in his penultimate game at Goodison Park. But Cleverley responded just after the hour mark by setting up Leighton Baines for what ended up being the match-winner to secure the three points and move into 11th. Apr 30 - 12:33 PM

Everton were not lacking on chances but could not finish any of them as they lose the confidence of a big FA Cup win against Chelsea last weekend by falling 0-2 to Arsenal.

It was a bright enough start for the Toffees as Seamus Coleman had a shot go off the post in the opening minute of the match. Arsenal would get on the board in the 7th minute though and Everton found themselves playing catch up the rest of the day. They did a good job setting up chances with a barrage of crosses, many of which were supplied by Tom Cleverley, but they did not trouble David Ospina much in their finishing. A second half substitution of John Stones in for Mo Besic did little to improve things for them and Arsenal kept a two goal advantage for the final 45 minutes, with the Toffees offering diminishing threat down the stretch. They will look to bounce back next week when they travel to Old Trafford.

Everton is hoping to have a trio of midfield absentees back from injury and illness for Saturday's match with in-form West Ham.

Tom Cleverley missed Tuesday's win against Aston Villa due to a chest infection but Martinez said he is hoping the former Manchester United man can join the team in training prior to the weekend. Meanwhile, both Muhamed Besic and Darron Gibson will face fitness tests this week, but the midfield duo is expected to be available against the Hammers. Besic has missed the last month with a hamstring injury after an encouraging run of starts in place of the injured James McCarthy while Gibson has struggled to stay healthy this year and is recovering from a knock. Nevertheless, it would not be wise to feature any of the three midfielders in your fantasy lineup while Cleverley is the only option you should consider once he is back into the starting lineup.

Everton could be facing a midfield crisis after manager Roberto Martinez revealed the club could be without both Tom Cleverley and James McCarthy against Manchester City on Wednesday.

Said Martinez: "Tom Cleverley is rated 50-50 for the squad tomorrow. We will assess him today, he had some general work yesterday with the medical department and it’s a bit early to know if he’s going to be available...James has been training well...He is up to individual work before he can join the group so he’s on the right path but it’s too early to give a deadline." Cleverley has filled in for McCarthy over the past month as the Irishman aggravated a groin injury. Without the duo in the FA Cup, Martinez elected to go with Muhamed Besic and Darron Gibson, one of whom will join Gareth Barry in midfield in Cleverley can't go.

Roberto Martinez has confirmed that injured trio Tom Cleverley, Romelu Lukaku and Seamus Coleman have responded well to treatment but: "It's too soon (to talk about timescales)."

All three were forced off during Wednesday nights’ Capital One Cup semi-final win over Man City but the Toffees boss was unwilling to give a timeframe on their expected length of absence. However, media reports do suggest that Coleman could miss up-to a month. "Lukaku (ankle) has responded really well to treatment and I could say the same for Seamus (calf) and Cleverley (Achilles)." Everton face tricky away games at Man City and Chelsea over the next week and Martinez will be hoping for at least one returner. On a more positive note. Phil Jagielka will start on Saturday for the first time since injuring his knee at Arsenal back in October while Steven Pienaar is also included the squad.

Roberto Martinez has confirmed that Tom Cleverley and James McCarthy will be assessed after the Everton duo were forced off during Mondays’ home defeat to Stoke City.

McCarthy was making his return after spending more than a month on the sidelines due to a groin problem but lasted less than half an hour following a recurrence of the injury. His replacement Cleverley, managed until the hour mark before an Achilles issue ended his afternoon. "To lose Tom Cleverley through injury and to get a reaction, a flare up from James McCarthy is a real negative," said Martinez. "It was a blow to lose James so early. Tom then felt his Achilles tendon and we will have to assess it. He tried to stay on as long as he could."

Tom Cleverley waited until the most opportune time—the 93rd minute—to score his first Premier League goal of the season to take three away points at Newcastle in a 1-0 win.

Cleverley capitalized on a poor punch by Newcastle goalkeeper Rob Elliot following a corner kick and the former Manchester United midfielder headed the clearance into the back of the net with just seven seconds remaining in stoppage time. The win pushed the Toffees into the top half of the table while Newcastle drop into the relegation zone on goal differential. Kevin Mirallas earned only his second start of the season, but it was his most convincing appearance, leading the match with six shots. Gerard Deulofeu, who leads the club with eight assists, was benched for Aaron Lennon while Romelu Lukaku's seven-match scoring streak came to an end.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez confirmed that Tom Cleverley is fully fit after returning from an ankle injury, but the midfielder needs to regain match fitness before he is cleared to play.

Said Martinez: "Tom is fully fit now. He had a little bit of a cold over the weekend that stopped him from training but he is back now and it is about making sure he gets in enough work in order to be considered 100 per cent. He is not far away from being available for the squad." The former Manchester United midfielder could face his former team in Aston Villa this weekend if he is deemed ready to return after starting the first four games of the season before succumbing to injury.

Tom Cleverley is targeting a return against his former club this weekend after working his way back to full fitness following an ankle ligament injury.

Cleverley spent a successful loan period at Villa Park during 2014/15 after the midfielder slipped down the pecking order at Old Trafford. The 26-year-old had lost his place in the Three Lions squad and Cleverley jumped at the chance of joining Paul Lambert at Aston Villa [initially as part of a season long loan deal]. However, following a change of manager, Cleverley saw his future elsewhere and the former United player moved to Everton on a permanent deal last summer. Cleverley continued his form from the previous season and quickly established himself under Martinez before he was injured at White Hart Lane in game week four. But after missing almost 3-months, Cleverley is back "and raring to go," and will come into contention for Saturdays’ game.

Roberto Martinez confirmed the return of Tom Cleverley, Bryan Oviedo and Steven Pienaar for the under-21s this week "was a significant boost."

Cleverley will be assessed during the next two training sessions and could be in line for a return this weekend "From a medical point of view I would say Tom will be 100 per cent. It’s just trying to work on his match fitness more than anything," Martinez said. "Oviedo is fully fit," but the club will take a more cautious approach with Pienaar given his problems over the past 12 months. "He’s been missed immensely. He's a different profile in our squad, the way he gets on the ball and links up." Leighton Baines "is progressing very well," with Mo Besic, Tony Hibbert and Aiden McGeady. "We are getting close to having a full squad." Kevin Mirallas has had some niggles [plus suspension] "but he's been working really hard and is really important for us."

Tom Cleverley is set for an extended spell out after the 26 year-old was stretchered off just moments before the break at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

As the clock ticked towards half-time Cleverley made a lung bursting run towards the Tottenham box before a strong Eric Dier challenge halted his progress. The impact of the tackle - and subsequent follow through – caught the Everton midfielder who instantly signalled to the bench for assistance. The medical team were able to confirm at HT that Cleverley had suffered a "serious" ankle injury although the extent was still unknown. However post-match Roberto Martinez did provide an update "[we are a] little more positive now" as it only appears to be ligament damage which is "minor" in comparison. It could take up-to a week for a full diagnosis but Cleverley is expected to miss at least a month in the first instance.

Everton have confirmed the £4.3 million transfer off winger Gerard Deulofeu from Barcelona…

Everton fans will be delighted to see the return of Deulofeu on a permanent basis, after making a big impact during a loan spell in season 2013/14. Then just 19-years-old, the skillful winger started nine PL matches and featured in another 16 from the bench, scoring four goals and demonstrating the quality you’d expect from a Barcelona academy product. He struggled to make a breakthrough at Camp Nou though and spent much of last season on loan at Europa League winning Seville. But Roberto Martinez never lost gave up his pursuit and at £4.3 million, Everton look to have done a sound bit of business. The Spaniard is the club’s second signing of the summer after bringing in midfielder Tom Cleverley on a free from Manchester United.

Everton look to have secured the services on Tom Cleverley for the next five years, following his release from Manchester United.

Aston Villa had hoped to make his season loan a permanent deal after an upturn in fortunes for club and player in the final quarter of the season. But Tom looks likely to tread the path of previous United rejects Phil Neville and Darron Gibson. He could be joined by Aaron Lennon too – the Tottenham loanee, who contributed two goals and three assists in his 15 matches since January, has told his parent club he is only interested in a move to Goodison. Solid if unspectacular business from Martinez.

Everton are reportedly leading the race to sign Tom Cleverley.

Cleverley never really impressed much at Manchester United so he was loaned out to Aston Villa this past season. The midfielder is available on a free transfer and is being pursued by a number of clubs after an impressive second half of the season with Aston Villa. He lacks the goalscoring and phantom stats to be a very impressive fantasy players, but he can be a solid piece to a Premier League team that can contribute on a weekly basis. Everton will be making a solid move if they can get him, but don't expect him to be a fantasy star.

The Liverpool Echo are reporting that Tom Cleverley is in talks with Everton over a move to the Goodison Park club amidst interest from Aston Villa, Arsenal and Southampton.

That Aston Villa, where Cleverley enjoyed a productive loan spell, and Everton, the home of loan boss Roberto Martinez from Cleverley's time with Wigan, comes as little surprise. What does come as something of a surprise are the links to Arsenal, who are stocked with central midfielders, and Southampton who may not be quite as stocked but are, none-the-less, not exactly struggling for central midfielders. If the rumors are true then Tim Sherwood and Villa are going to have a hard time getting their man. Cleverley's contract with Manchester United is up and he will be able to move to a new club on a free transfer this summer.
