Everton's defensive crisis has deepened with the news that Seamus Coleman could miss the weekend as he recovers from a stomach virus that has kept him out for much of the week.
Everton manager Roberto Martinez expressed concern that Coleman could join Jagielka and Leighton Baines as usual starting defenders sidelined for the Sunderland match: "He's a huge question mark for the weekend at the moment. He's had a stomach bug, nothing serious but he's lost a lot of weight and he's going to take a bit of time. We'll keep an eye on him but the weekend might just come too soon." Coleman missed Tuesday's League Cup match and could be replaced once again by Tyias Browning or Bryan Oviedo. Oct 30 - 8:03 AM

Everton defender Seamus Coleman confirmed he is fully fit to face Manchester United this weekend.

The right-back has missed the last three Premier League games with a hamstring injury, but returned to match action over the weekend with Ireland in EURO 2016 qualifying. Coleman's temporary replacement, Tyias Browning, will likely return to the bench, but not without the praises of manager Roberto Martinez. Coleman vs. Memphis Depay could be an intriguing matchup in his first week back.

Seamus Coleman and John Stones are a late fitness test for Everton in week eight.

Everton play on Sunday so it is way too early to know if Coleman and Stones will be fit enough to play. A decision will be made on Sunday morning, according to Roberto Martinez. It's too risky to use either one in leagues where you can't make changes up until kickoff so we suggest avoiding both in those formats.

Everton enjoyed a comprehensive win over Chelsea in the Premier League’s early kick-off on Saturday but the victory was marred by the loss of Mo Besic and Seamus Coleman to injury.

Besic was coming in for his first half of the season replacing the injured Tom Cleverley but the 23 year-old lasted less than 9-minutes after pulling up with a hamstring problem. However his loss was the Toffees’ gain as his replacement Steven Naismith grabbed the perfect hat-trick [right foot / left-foot / head] to seal all three points. Post-match Roberto Martinez confirmed that Coleman will be checked having suffered a muscular problem on 75 minutes which allowed new signing Ramiro Funes Mori to make his debut. "We'll have to assess Seamus and Mo [over the next 48 hours] and see how they are."

Manchester United set to use Jonny Evans as bait to land Everton right-back Seamus Coleman…

After missing out on Nathaniel Clyne and Dani Alves, Manchester United are set to up the ante in their pursuit of Everton right-back Seamus Coleman. Converted winger Antonio Valencia did a decent job in the role for much of last season, but the Republic of Ireland international has emerged as one of the PL’s best in recent years. Recording ten clean sheets, three goals and three assists last season – even though it was Everton’s worst showing for six campaigns. Everton are in the market for a centre-back too. With Sylvain Distin gone, there is no cover for Phil Jagielka and John Stones so the availability of Jonny Evans might sweeten the deal. Evans has not been offered a new contract at United, whereas other centre-backs Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Paddy McNair and Tyler Blackett have and with the £30 million Sergio Ramos apparently on his way, he may be surplus to requirements.

Manchester United are reportedly ready to make a move on Everton right-back Seamus Coleman…

The route between Everton and Manchester United is a fairly well-trodden one in the transfer map. Current United stars Marouanne Fellaini and Wayne Rooney were both picked off for big fees. Leighton Baines was vigorously pursued during David Moyes reign and young starlets such as John Stones and Ross Barkley are understood to be window-shopped regularly. In return, United are happy to send players the other way when their use has expired – Tom Cleverley, Phil Neville, Tom Howard and Louis Saha among others. Everton right-back Seamas Coleman is the latest to attract United’s attention. They are in the market for a right-back with converted winger Antonio Valencia currently filling the role ahead of Rafael – who increasingly has the look of a Cleverley/ Neville/ Toward et al about him. A fee of £20 million should do it, with Adnan Januzaj in the opposite direction on loan possibly greasing the wheels.

Seamus Coleman had a tough day for fantasy managers as Everton shipped three goals in their loss to Aston Villa over the weekend, resulting in a nice price discount.

Coleman had the worst score of any of the Toffee defenders with a -4 in the Yahoo game. That has triggered a price drop which should be considered for Week 35 as Everton will be set to host Sunderland. While the Black Cats are coming off of a positive display with a win at home, odds are they will find things difficult at Goodison Park. Between attacking and defending potential, Coleman should be among the ranked defenders to own for Week 35.

Seamus Coleman scored a crucial goal to help Everton to a win over QPR last weekend and he appears to be a better pick than Leighton Baines in fantasy at the moment.

It has been a while since we have seen the attacking exploits of Coleman, something that had been commonplace in the previous two seasons, but the tough reality is that it has been a while since Baines has been a fantasy stud either. To be fair to the left back, he is still the third-highest scoring defender in Yahoo this season, but unlike in previous seasons, he isn't creating much distance between himself and several defenders who are priced millions less. Just this past week Coleman outscored his teammate 13 to 4, yet Baines got the bigger rise in price even though both have the same ownership percentage. All it takes is for one penalty to set Baines up for a monster day, but week to week, Coleman is matching him on a points per pound basis. With his attacking form emerging, that should only tip the scales in Coleman's favor.

Seamus Coleman had a rough fantasy score in his last game and it saw his price drop to a very attractive number as Everton get set to host the league's basement dwellers, Leicester City.

Everton have shown signs of turning their season around in recent weeks, especially defensively, but a 0-1 result at Stamford Bridge in which Coleman was yellow carded caused the attacking fullback's price to take a dip to 11.71m. Any Toffee coverage in the back looks like a good idea this week, it is just a matter of whether you want to pay a premium for someone like Leighton Baines or roll the dice on Tim Howard as a budget play.

Looking for anything positive to build off of, Everton's defense surely received a morale boost after keeping West Brom from scoring in their last league mach.A

A solid 14 points from Seamus Coleman in the Yahoo game against the Baggies, reminiscent of potential from season's past, but not nearly common enough this term. Leighton Baines would have 17 himself and would have doubled that score in all likelihood were it not for the stinginess of Kevin Mirallas. Their next match against Crystal Palace looked promising enough a couple weeks ago, with Mile Jedinak and Yannick Bolasie off on international duty, but the Eagles have scored five times over their past two as Alan Pardew has changed the club philosophy and Jason Puncheon is hitting form again. Still, with an increase in scoring has impacted their defending negatively and an attacking fullback like Coleman can still deliver the goods even if Everton concede.

Seamus Coleman and Gareth Barry have emerged with minor injury doubts on the eve of the Week 11 deadline.

Coleman missed out on the midweek Europa match and with the rash of injuries in the back combined with his reputation of playing through knocks, it was probably a cautious move by Martinez to make sure his right back is fit for the trip to Sunderland. Barry, meanwhile, picked up a fresh knock during midweek action and may be in more of a position to sit out Sunday, with seldom-used Darron Gibson available to partner James McCarthy in central defense should Martinez be looking for a way to get Gibson some playing time.

Everton's Seamus Coleman can continue his good form at Burnley in Week 9.

Vital to Everton and a genuine goal threat, Burnley will find it difficult to cope with Coleman's runs down the right flank and the full-back could have a huge fantasy week. We marginally prefer him to Leighton Baines, but both are expensive options so you'd need to feel confident in Coleman's returns in order to splash the cash.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez will make a late decision regarding the involvement of Steven Pienaar and Seamus Coleman ahead of this weekend’s Merseyside Derby against Liverpool.

The Toffees will be hoping that at least one of the pair can return in time for the early kick-off at Anfield although full-back Coleman [minor head injury] is the player most likely to be given the green light. Steven Pienaar [thigh] has been sidelined for over a month and his involvement – certainly from the start – would be a risk with little more than a few days on the training ground. Everton will be hoping to avoid defeat for the third time in a week although the team that lost to Swansea on Tuesday did contain a number of players returning from long-term absence – Tony Hibbert, Bryan Oviedo and Antolin Alcaraz with James McCarthy and Arouna Kone on the bench.

The blow to the head Seamus Coleman suffered during Thursday's Europa clash with VL Wolfsburg is not expected to keep him out of Sunday's clash with Crystal Palace.

Roberto Martinez was quoted as saying "there is nothing to be too worried about" and thinks the dynamic right back will be fine for Sunday. It is a plus matchup for the Toffees, so this comes as comforting news for those expecting big things from Coleman.

The Everton defense made several mistakes, first early, then later on often, as they would concede six goals to Chelsea in a wild 3-6 final.

The officiating of today's match wasn't top notch by any means but it does not excuse today's defensive showing. Several times, Toffee defenders would try to play their marked man into an offside position and several times it cost them. They would rally after the early deficit but as the 2nd half played out, the back was breached time and again. Coleman got the worst of it from a fantasy perspective. Though he provided an assist to one of Everton's three scores, that was negated by an own goal he was credited with after deflecting an Eden Hazard shot home. Though the idea of keeping a clean sheet against Chelsea wasn't necessarily a realistic one, coughing up a half dozen on your own ground is a jarring reflection of the state of the Toffee defense.
