Everton manager Roberto Martinez has another defensive dilemma on his hands with three right-backs injured prior to Wednesday's match.
Seamus Coleman has missed the last three weeks with a hamstring injury while Tyias Browning also suffered an injury in training that has kept him out of action. But now Tony Hibbert has suffered an ankle injury just after coming back from a season-long knee injury. Bryan Oviedo and Muhamed Besic has filled in at right back in recent weeks while Matthew Pennington has been forced into the back-line without Phil Jagielka and Brendan Galloway. But the news gets better this week with Ramiro Funes Mori back into the fold following his three-match ban. May 11 - 12:58 PM

Everton is still waiting on the fitness of key starters Seamus Coleman and Gareth Barry ahead of the club's double gameweek.

Barry has missed the last two matches due to a knock while Coleman has been less fortunate in his recovery, missing much of the last three weeks with a hamstring injury. While Roberto Martinez said they might not be available to face Leicester City on Saturday, the manager is confident the duo will return at some point in the remaining three matches: "Gareth and Seamus have got an outside chance of being involved at the weekend but I feel quite confident they will be involved one way or another before the season ends."

Everton will be looking to shore up its defensive options with Ramiro Funes Mori and Seamus Coleman ruled out for the weekend.

Manager Roberto Martinez ruled out Coleman with a hamstring injury for the club's FA Cup semifinal this weekend against Manchester United, which reports suggest could be the manager's final chance at keeping his job on Merseyside. With Funes Mori also suspended, Martinez may have to get creative with his back-line. Bryan Oviedo started at right-back in the midweek match against Liverpool while Muhamed Besic also filled in at center-back. Phil Jagielka is likely to miss the weekend with a hamstring injury but Martinez wanted to give the captain one more chance at a fitness test.

Everton will be without both Seamus Coleman and Phil Jagielka for a date with rival Liverpool in the Merseyside derby on Wednesday.

While manager Roberto Martinez ruled the defensive pair out for the midweek clash, he said the club will hold out hope that they can be available to face Manchester United in the FA Cup semifinal this weekend: "Phil Jagielka and Seamus Coleman will definitely be out of the derby but it is too early to make a final decision before the weekend." Coleman was subbed off in the 54th minute on Saturday against Southampton due to a hamstring injury while Jagielka has missed the club's last two matches with a hamstring complaint. Ramiro Funes Mori filled in at center-back while John Stones could be pushed to right-back in order to make room for Tyias Browning or Brendan Galloway.

Everton will be waiting on the fitness of Seamus Coleman after the right-back picked up a hamstring injury on Satruday.

Coleman left the club's 1-1 draw with Southampton in the 54th minute with a hamstring injury and was replaced by academy product Callum Connolly. However, manager Roberto Martinez said he doesn't think the Irishman will be available to face Liverpool in the Merseyside derby on Wednesday: "Obviously Seamus felt his hamstring. We're going to assess him in the morning but it will be hard to see him being involved this week. That sort of injury will take a bit longer than a week." Without Coleman, the Toffees could rely upon John Stones or Muhamed Besic at right-back while Tyias Browning and Brendan Galloway could also be brought back into the back-line.
Apr 17 - 12:29 PM

Roberto Martinez revealed the club will be without Seamus Coleman and James McCarthy for the weekend match against Swansea, but should be able to return in the next week.

Martinez said he was hopeful the starting duo would be available to face Manchester City in a crucial League Cup second leg after winning the first leg at the start of the month. McCarthy has only played 26 minutes in the new year before aggravating a preexisting groin injury while Coleman has missed the last two Premier League matches with a hamstring injury. Without the pair, the Toffees have turned to Muhamed Besic in midfield while Ramiro Funes Mori and Bryan Oviedo have filled in on the back-line. Oviedo needed to be taken off on a stretcher this weekend against Chelsea, but Martinez revealed the Costa Rican is back in training and in contention for the weekend.

Seamus Coleman is likely to miss most of the month of January after being ruled out for two weeks in addition to the week he has already missed with a hamstring injury.

Roberto Martinez gave the news at his weekly press conference on Tuesday ahead of Wednesday's showdown against Manchester City, as the club could also be without James McCarthy and Tom Cleverley. Coleman, meanwhile, suffered a calf injury last week against Manchester City in the League Cup and will miss a busy period for the Toffees. In the FA Cup win this weekend, Martinez elected to go with Bryan Oviedo at right-back while Phil Jagielka returned to the lineup. John Stones and Muhamed Besic also have experience at the position.
Jan 12 - 8:25 AM

Everton emerged from its showdown with Manchester City in the League Cup semifinals with a 2-1 victory, but could have lost much more following a series of injuries.

Defender Seamus Coleman is expected to miss the next three to four weeks after suffering a calf injury that puts the Everton defense back into crisis mode. Said manager Roberto Martinez: "Seamus is probably the most serious of the three. He has pulled his calf and that type of injury usually takes three or four weeks to fully recover." Martinez also confirmed that midfielder Tom Cleverley suffered a knock to his calf in the win and will be assessed ahead of the club's FA Cup match this weekend. Without Coleman, Martinez could turn to Bryan Oviedo or Brendan Galloway at right-back, or possibly shift John Stones to right-back and continue with Ramiro Funes Mori upon the return of Phil Jagielka.
Jan 6 - 8:36 PM

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.

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.
