Seamus Coleman scored a late first half equalizer as Everton came from behind to pick up a point on the road against Stoke City.
Seamus Coleman seems to have rediscovered his goalscoring boots. After scoring twice in the first half of the season the right back has doubled that total over the past two Premier League matches. There was a hint of offsides about the goal as Romelu Lukaku was near Coleman's shot in an offside position but was judged not to have interfered as the Ireland international's shot found the net. Coleman's goal equalized an early strike from former Liverpool man Peter Crouch. Feb 1 - 5:03 PM

Everton waited until the end to steal three points from Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park thanks to Seamus Coleman.

The right-back rummaged down the wing, where youth star Tom Davies found the Irish international with a through ball. Coleman collected himself and fired a shot past Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey for the match-winner, his fourth goal of the season, in the 87th minute make it three wins on the trot for the Toffees and five straight Premier League matches without a loss. For once, Everton didn't need the help of Romelu Lukaku, who entered the match with three goals in his last four league matches. With the win, Everton now moves five points back of sixth-place Manchester United, who drew at Stoke.

Seamus Coleman is expected to be in the Everton lineup against Watford this weekend, according to Ronald Koeman.

The right-back only just returned to training on Thursday after sustaining a knock that saw him leave the club's 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday. But Koeman said the Irish international came through training without an issue and is set to be available for the weekend:"Seamus is okay. He did a normal first training session today. In the beginning of the week he still had some pain but it looks positive. Normally I’d expect him to be available for the match."

Everton responded from its 5-0 thrashing at Stamford Bridge before the break to earn a point in a 1-1 draw with Swansea City.

The Toffees went behind in the first half after captain Phil Jagielka clumsily bowled over Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson inside the box that led to a penalty, which the Icelandic international put away easily to go into the half with a 1-0 lead. But it was Seamus Coleman who righted his fellow defender's wrong with a last-gasp effort in the 89th minute. Following a scramble in the penalty area, a poor Swansea City clearance dropped to the right-back near the six-yard box before heading the ball just past Lukasz Fabianski and into the top corner to steal the point.

Jose Mourinho is rumoured to be interested in Everton's Irish right back Seamus Coleman.

Mourinho joins a succession of United bosses who have apparently wanted to being the Republic of Ireland captain to Old Trafford after both Moyes and Van Gaal also rated him. At present, converted winger Antonio Valencia is in the last year of his contract, but Manchester United have the option to extend it to June 2018. However, the Ecuadorian is 31 and his only cover is Timothy Fosu-Mensah, whose preferred position is central midfield. It seems that the stage is set for a new right back then, and Coleman has enjoyed a great start to the season under Ronald Koeman after a poor term under Martinez in 2015/16. Antoine Griezmann and Danny Drinkwater are also on Mourinho's shortlist.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman confirmed the full fitness of one club regular following injury in Seamus Coleman.

However, Koeman revealed midfielder James McCarthy needed surgery to fix a groin problem that will keep him out for a few weeks. Coleman missed the first three matches of the season after suffering an ankle injury in the preseason but has now been cleared to start for the club against former manager David Moyes' Sunderland side. Said Koeman: "He was fit to play [for Ireland] and he came back without any reaction. He is fit to start. James McCarthy had groin surgery and will be out for three weeks."

Ronald Koeman confirms Seamus Coleman will be missing for "several weeks" after suffering an ankle injury.

The Republic of Ireland international was singled out as "doubt" during Thursdays pre-match press conference, but further tests indicate the injury is far worse than originally feared, and Coleman is set for an extended period on the side-lines. With Ashley Williams short of match-fitness, Koeman named an attacking line-up with Mason Holgate making his senior debut in a back three. Phil Jagielka, himself a doubt following a pre-season hamstring strain, was passed fit while Funes Mori made up the trio. Romelu Lukaku also missed the opener after failing to recover from the heel injury he sustained against Espanyol, that despite the managers’ optimism earlier this week.

Seamus Coleman has denied he missed the [Premier League] season run-in to ensure his fitness ahead of the European Championships.

Coleman had been side-lined since tweaking his hamstring in the draw with Southampton at Goodison Park back in April. But, the 27-year-old returned to action, playing 90 minutes for the Republic of Ireland in a friendly against Holland at the end of May, prompting many to question whether he had avoided Everton’s remaining games to minimise any risk of recurrence before Euro 2016. "I missed the FA Cup semi-final [against Manchester United] and I missed the derby with Liverpool so no," he said. "If I could have played, I would have. I had a scan and it just wasn’t right. I possibly could have played the last game but what’s the point in risking it with the big summer ahead." Ireland take on Sweden in their opening game of the tournament on June 13.

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.

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.

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.
