Roberto Martinez revealed that left back Bryan Oviedo has felt a strain in his hamstring during training, putting his availability for Everton's match against Southampton on Sunday in question.
Oviedo did well in his time with Baines on the shelf. In two league starts, coming against Liverpool and Chelsea, Everton conceded just one goal. However, he cannot match the abilities of Baines so even though the injury is not something to celebrate by any means, it does little to Martinez's plans as he surely had it in mind to plug Baines straight back in this weekend.

Bryan Oviedo got a surprise start as Leighton Baines was kept out the squad with a knee injury that was not revealed during the buildup to the match.

Roberto went on to say post match that Baines had picked up a knock in the previous match against Palace and failed a fitness test this morning. A tough blow who depend on Baines as an every week play for his ability to offer big returns attacking and defending. Meanwhile, Oviedo gets a start and has a nice fantasy day with a clean sheet, not bad for the second cheapest defender available in the Yahoo game. If he happened to put up points for you, then you may want to stop by your local lotto to play some numbers.

Everton cruised past Stevenage in the FA Cup on Saturday but the win came at a cost as they lost Bryan Oviedo for the season with a broken leg.

Despite Leighton Baines' return from injury, Oviedo had continued to see himself in Roberto Martinez's starting lineup at least occasionally. Martinez will likely have to wait until next season for the Costa Rican's return as the ankle break likely rules him out for the rest of the 2013-14 season as well as the World Cup. Martinez had better hope that Baines remains healthy or he will find himself in a difficult spot at left back.

Bryan Oviedo scored his second goal in as many starts since filling in for the injured Leighton Baines, and it was the only goal of a tightly fought game with Manchester United.

If nothing else, Oviedo's stock is rising as the transfer window looms. Certainly, despite Oviedo's heroics, Roberto Martinez will slot Baines straight back in upon his return to fitness as the English international may be the most nailed on non-keeper in the entire league. Still, if you invested in Oviedo when he was cheap, hopefully you are reaping some benefits, though many owners are likely staring at his points on their benches.
