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.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman confirmed that goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg has made a full return from injury.

The Dutch goalkeeper has missed the last month due to a dead leg following a collision with a teammate in the Merseyside derby in December. In his absence, Joel Robles has impressed mightily in five appearances with three clean sheets in the last four Premier League matches. With two experienced keepers, Koeman said he is not sure who to start this weekend against Crystal Palace: "He [Stekelenburg] is fully fit. I don’t [want to] say anything about this because last week Maarten Stekelenburg was still not 100-per-cent fit to start the game. Yes, he is now 100 per cent but that’s a decision we need to make."

Ronald Koeman confirms goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg has fully recovered from his recent injury but there is a slight doubt over Leighton Baines heading into game week 22.

Stekelenburg suffered a dead leg in the Merseyside derby and spent almost a month on the sidelines before returning to the bench last weekend. The 34-year-old is "100 percent fit to start" but following the 4-0 battering of Man City at Goodison six days ago, it is possible that Koeman could name an unchanged side with Joel Robles continuing between the sticks. Leighton Baines "is struggling a little bit with his rib but normally he would be available," Koeman said. "Otherwise we are the same as last week. The long-term injuries are to Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Mo Besic and Yannick Bolasie."

Everton shocked the Premier League world on Sunday as they thrashed Manchester City 4-0.

It was the third "big" club of the weekend involved in a 4-0 result but this time with a big twist. Arsenal and Spurs both cruised to 4-0 victories but it was City losing by the same score on Sunday with Lukaku, Mirallas, Davies and debutant Lookman scoring for Ronald Koeman's side.

Along with two new signings, Everton is set to have three more additions to the side this weekend against Manchester City.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman confirmed that midfielders Aaron Lennon and James McCarthy and goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg have all recovered from injuries and are available to face City. However, Koeman said it is unclear whether they will return to the starting lineup, with Stekelenburg facing a battle to displace Joel Robles. "Maarten and James are both fit. They have been training all week with the whole team - but it’s always a question for the manager whether or not they are match fit to start. That is sometimes a difficult decision but we will make it tomorrow. Aaron Lennon had a knock that kept him out of last weekend’s game but he started training again with us this week and he’s available."

Everton is expected to hand midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin his club debut on Sunday against Manchester City.

The midfielder arrived on Thursday in a £20million move from Manchester United in good fitness, and has been named in the team to face Manchester City by manager Ronald Koeman. However, Koeman said he will wait to see if Schneiderlin is ready to start right away, along with weighing up new signing Ademola Lookman's debut. "Morgan’s fitness is okay. He’s not had a lot of game-time but to improve that you need to play and you need minutes. We will make a decision tomorrow, but he’ll be involved in the squad on Sunday. Ademola also has a chance to be involved."

Everton manager Ronald Koeman is wasting no time in digging into the club's transfer kitty with a move for Morgan Schneiderlin.

Schneiderlin only appeared in three Premier League matches this season under new Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and now joins the Toffees for a £20 million fee that could rise to £24 million with incentives. The 27-year-old signs a four-and-a-half-year contract through the summer of 2021. Said Schneiderlin: "Everton is a big club in the history of English football. I’ve always loved the atmosphere in the stadium. I’ve always liked playing here. I can’t wait to play and to represent this great Club. There is a manager in place here that I know, I know he can get the best out of me, I know his style and how he likes to play football."

Manchester United have agreed a fee with Everton for the transfer of French international Morgan Schneiderlin.

The 27 year old, who arrived at Old Trafford for £25 million in July 2015 to Louis Van Gaal from Southampton will depart for an initial fee of £22 million. It is being reported by some outlets that the deal could rise as high as £24 million if add-ons are triggered. Schneiderlin was consistently a member of the first team in his first season at the club, earning himself 25 starts in the PL. This season, his league appearances have dwindled to just three as a substitute. Schneiderlin will link up with Ronald Koeman at Everton, for whom he excelled before his move to the north.

Everton will have to wait another year to end its trophy drought after blowing a home lead to Leicester City in the FA Cup third round.

It looked as though Everton had turned a corner in the match with a 63rd-minute goal from star forward Romelu Lukaku, connecting on a cross from Gerard Deulofeu to take a 1-0 lead. It was Lukaku's seventh goal in his last seven FA Cup appearances. But within eight minutes, the lead wasn't just gone—it had turned into a deficit thanks to the magic of Leicester City substitute Ahmed Musa, who scored two goals within five minutes of each other to take the lead. Without anything but a top-seven finish to play for, the Toffees will have to reevaluate ahead of their showdown with Manchester City next weekend.

Everton will have to continue without James McCarthy and Maarten Stekelenburg for the upcoming FA Cup weekend.

Manager Ronald Koeman confirmed the duo will need more time to recover from injuries that have kept them out for the past month and won't be available to face Leicester City in the FA Cup, whil remaining doubts for a big Week 21 match against Manchester City. Meanwhile, Aaron Lennon is also a doubt for the upcoming week. Said Koeman: "James [McCarthy] still isn’t in the team training. He may or may not be ready for the game against Manchester City next week. Maarten [Stekelenburg] is still out. It was a dead leg and we probably expected to have him back in training a little bit sooner. Normally, he will start training with our goalkeeper coach for the first time tomorrow, then we will see."

Everton's Yannick Bolasie's injury nightmare has only just begun with the winger expected to miss up to a year.

The playmaker suffered an ACL injury in the first week of December that has already required one major surgery and will now need another in the coming months to repair the ruptured ligaments. Bolasie arrived this summer in a £30 million move from Crystal Palace, recording one goal and four assists in his debut season on Merseyside. Said manager Ronald Koeman at the club's annual general meeting: "He's, at the moment, optimistic. It is a long-term injury, 10, 11, 12 months. That is a big disappointment but he will come back, he has a strong mentality."

Everton announced 19-year-old winger Mola Lookman as the club's first signing of what is expected to be a busy winter window.

Lookman joins from League One club Charlton Athletic, where he has scored 10 goals in the last year since joining the senior side, on a four-and-a-half-year contract through the summer of 2021 in a £11 million move. He can play both wings as well as up top as a secondary striker. Said manager Ronald Koeman"Ademola is a big talent and, at 19 years old, he has a big future in the game. I’m really happy that we’ve been able to bring him here to the Club. This is part of the vision we have for the Club and it’s important to give to young players the opportunity so that the team continues to evolve and improve."

Promising youngster Dominic Calvert-Lewin could miss the next two months after he was injured on his full Premier League debut.

Calvert-Lewin was one of four changes by Ronald Koeman for the visit of Southampton on January 02, but the 19-year-old lasted barely 10 minutes after sustaining an ankle injury. Subsequent tests have confirmed ligament damage and it could be March before the academy product is back with the first team. Ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup tie against Leicester, Koeman also revealed Maarten Stekelenburg [dead leg] will return to training on Friday putting him back in contention for game week 21 while James McCarthy remains a doubt for the clash with Man City: "He may or may not be ready." Aaron Lennon faces a late fitness test although the precise nature of the injury, which forced him off last time out, is not known. Idrissa Gueye is unavailable due to his involvement in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations.

It seems to be almost certain that Morgan Schneiderlin will leave Manchester United in the January transfer window.

On Monday it was reported that the Red Devils rejected a £19 million bid from Everton after previously turning down a million less from Tony Pulis' West Brom. The Toffees are keen to replace Idrissa Gueye as he leaves for AFCON duty for the next few weeks with Senegal. Both interested clubs will have to increase their bids if they are to acquire the French international, with United believed to be trying to recoup the majority of the £24 million they paid Southampton in July 2015 in spite of Schneiderlin's exclusion from Mourinho's United set up.

Everton comprehensively beat Southampton to record their first victory of 2017 on a 3-0 scoreline.

Southampton's fixture congestion and poor record in front of goal this term really seems to be biting them at every turn and this game was no different. The first half was uneventful, with Everton having 2 shots on target compared to the Saints' one. However, Everton made their chances count after the interval without showing a great deal of creativity. Valencia scored his first PL goal of the season after a blocked Lukaku header fell to him. Leighton Baines made it two from the spot, highlighting his fantasy credentials at both ends of the pitch. Lukaku was rewarded for a powerful performance in the closing minutes of regulation time, smashing in a fine effort from just inside the box. Claude Puel very much on the ropes with bad results building up for Southampton.
