Everton came from behind once again to steal a point from Selhurst Park in a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.

Oumar Niasse has proven to be one of the club's shining stars this season, and now leading scorer on five goals. The Senegal international celebrated a memorable week that saw him qualify for the World Cup and produce two goals for the Toffees when they needed him most, starting in the fifth minute when he drew a penalty, however dubious, that ended with a Leighton Baines conversion. Then, in stoppage time of the first half, Niasse took a pass from Gylfi Sigurdsson and tucked it past Julian Speroni for the final goal of the match.

Everton midfielders Kevin Mirallas and Morgan Schneiderlin were both sent home from training last Saturday, according to reports.

The midfielders were dismissed by Everton caretaker manager David Unsworth due to a lack of effort, and were then left out of the squad in the win against Watford in Week 11. The high-profile duo's future looks to be up in the air after being linked with a move away from the club as they have hardly played in the last three weeks of the season, which could have serious repercussions for them as they look to play in next year's World Cup. Said Mirallas on social media: Thank you for all your messages. It's a difficult situation for me, but in life there are things much more serious than my personal situation."

Leighton Baines capped Everton's furious comeback with a stoppage time winner against Watford.

The Toffees started the match in the same poor form that saw Ronald Koeman sacked as they went down 2-0 in the first half to goals from Richarlison and Kabasele. Against all odds, the comeback was on in the second half. Goals from Oumar Naisse and Dominic Calvert-Lewin set the stage for Baines' dramatics. Baines scored in the first minute of extra time for a much-needed win as the club look to move on to their next era.

Everton defender Michael Keane is looking to return from an infection in time to face Watford on Sunday afternoon.

The summer arrival from Burnley has missed the last week after an infection in a cut in his foot spread up his leg, causing him to be hospitalized. But interim manager David Unsworth remains hopeful after seeing him train Thursday: "Michael Keane trained yesterday and he’s going to train with us [on Friday afternoon] and we’ll see how he comes through that session but fingers crossed, he should be okay." The club will also have Phil Jagielka, Wayne Rooney and Leighton Baines back after resting the veterans in its Europa League loss Thursday.

Everton will be extremely short-handed in defense on Thursday in its Europa League match with Lyon.

Interim manager David Unsworth confirmed that defenders Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka, along with Wayne Rooney, will be rested and will not travel with the team after a heavy workload recently. Meanwhile, Michael Keane remains out with a leg infection; Seamus Coleman and Ramiro Funes Mori are long-term absentees. Said Unsworth: "We just wanted to freshen it up with one eye on Sunday as well. Those lads have played a lot in a short space of time. We’ve done that and it’s a great opportunity for others to come in and show me what they’re all about and give me something to think about for Sunday."

Everton midfielder James McCarthy has suffered another setback in his recovery injury.

The 26-year-old has been battling ongoing knee and hamstring problems for most of the year, injuries which have restricted him to just a single Premier League start. But, following 60 minutes in the Carabao Cup at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, it was hoped that McCarthy could kick on under new temporary manager David Unsworth. However, the caretaker boss revealed, following the defeat to Leicester, that the Republic of Ireland international had suffered a recurrence of his hamstring injury which is likely to mean "a couple of weeks" on the sidelines: "Unfortunately, after the Chelsea game he got a little tweak. We got it scanned on Friday and there’s a little strain there. It’s disappointing because he’s a big player for us." The news will come as a huge blow to Martin O’Neill as the injury is expected to rule him out of next month’s World Cup playoff game against Denmark.

Michael Keane missed the 2-0 defeat at Leicester after he was hospitalised due to a foot infection which travelled up his leg.

The Everton centre-back originally suffered a deep laceration in the Carabao Cup almost six weeks ago - keeping him out for a couple of matches. However, after playing in Ronald Koeman’s final game in charge, a heavy defeat to Arsenal, Keane was benched at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night. And following his omission from the match-day squad on Sunday, growing speculation suggested Keane had been axed by new boss David Unsworth along with Davy Klaassen, Nikola Vlasic and Sandro Ramirez while summer signing Gylfi Sigurdsson had to settle for a place on the bench. But, the caretaker manager confirmed it was in fact injury which kept Keane out of today's clash: "Michael got a really bad gash and it got infected and spread up his leg, and he's been hospitalised. We got some good news when we got to the ground that there's been a big improvement, so hopefully he can be available for [next weekend]."

Everton's attempt to get on the right track in the post-Ronald Koeman era never got off the ground this afternoon as two early Leicester City goals sent the Toffees to a 2-0 loss.

The afternoon began with bad news as Michael Keane sent an Instagram post from a hospital bed, revealing his absence from the game. Caretaker manager David Unsworth deployed a back four that proceeded to ship two goals in the opening half hour as Everton's defensive woes continued. The Toffee attack gave Leicester little to worry about, as rare starts for wide men Aaron Lennon and Kevin Mirallas did not produce any results. Sigurdsson was benched for the first time this season and came on as a substitute but his Everton career continues to struggle as he has nary a goal nor an assist after the season's first ten weeks.

Everton interim manager David Unsworth confirmed that Ross Barkley is still at least three weeks away from returning.

The Everton star has not played this season as he recovers from a hamstring injury, which was preceded by groin surgery this summer. But with a new coach following Ronald Koeman's dismissal, it could mark a fresh start for Barkley upon his return in November. Said Unsworth: "We hope Ross is three or four weeks away from being in the squad. The long term injuries are as they were, but Ross is closer to coming back. They are all still working really hard in the gym. But with Yannick Bolasie and Seamus Coleman, you are talking months not weeks."

Everton will have some added midfield depth with Morgan Schneiderlin and James McCarthy set to return from injury.

McCarthy has been missing since April after sustaining yet another hamstring injury, using the last few weeks to build fitness with the U23s before his first-team return. However, the Irish international will face a difficult time breaking into the Toffees's starting lineup with a crowded midfield, including Schneiderlin's return. Said interim manager David Unsworth: "Both James and Morgan are available for Wednesday and they were part of the group this morning when I spoke to the players...The spirit was great – within five minutes of the ball rolling the players were buzzing and it was a really good session. They reacted straight away and we have done a little bit of work on Wednesday’s game. They were very receptive to what we were doing. The quality was there and the atmosphere we want was there."

Everton announced the departure of manager Ronald Koeman after taking only eight points from nine games.

The Dutch manager was in his second season as manager, brought in two summers ago to take the club to the next level. While finishing seventh and qualifying for Europa League last season, the departure of Romelu Lukaku seems to have uncovered the club's glaring weaknesses. Only the bottom two clubs in the Premier League have move losses and less goals than third-bottom Everton, who has gone winless in its last five matches in all competitions with a League Cup match against Chelsea ahead on Wednesday.
Oct 23 - 4:53 PM

Arsenal had already come from behind to lead when Idrissa Gueye was dismissed after seeing his second yellow card.

Things just keep getting worse for Ronald Koeman as Everton couldn't maintain an early lead and lost 5-2 to fall into the relegation zone. Wayne Rooney scored early from a Gana steal and assist. Arsenal scored three and saw Gana dismissed before garbage time goals from Niasse, Rasmsey and Sanchez.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman announced five players are fit to face Arsenal on Sunday after a string of injuries.

The under-fire manager confirmed that Wayne Rooney, Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka are all in contention to face the Gunners after being rested in the club's Europa League loss to Lyon yesterday. Said Koeman about Rooney: "He’s working hard to get it right for himself and also for the team. I admire the way he is a professional on the pitch and in training." The manager also confirmed that midfielders Morgan Schneiderlin and James McCarthy are expected to be available for the weekend match.

Brighton looked to be on the verge of earning their 3rd win in a row at the AMEX before Wayne Rooney levelled from the spot in stoppage time.

Brighton's goal came from Anthony Knockaert, returned to the Brighton starting XI after he was dropped for their visit to the Emirates in their pre-international break outing. The Frenchman seized his chance after Izquierdo's blocked shot came to him. In a game which lacked drama, Everton were will be thankful to Bruno for elbowing Calvert-Lewin in the area while a free-kick was fired in late on. Wayne Rooney made mo mistake with the ensuing penalty, sending Ryan the wrong way. The Australian goalkeeper made two saves after to deny Kevin Mirallas a winner. The pressure continues to mount on Ronald Koeman as Everton's slow start to the season comtinues.

Yannick Bolasie is edging closer to his return from an ACL injury after starting up light training with Everton.

While the winger says he still has a ways to go before rejoining the full squad, the club is hopeful Bolasie can return before the end of the calendar year, which would mark a year since his injury last December. Said Bolasie: "I'm just happy to be back out there and moving about the way I can. I'm getting stronger by the day and I'm looking forward to coming back. There's still a while to go but I'm happy with where I'm at. At this stage, I couldn't ask to be in a better place and everything just seems like it's clicking into place."
