Boss Provides Fitness Update

by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

Roberto Martinez has provided an injury update on several of Everton's players.

Nikica Jelavic, himself a half time substitute had to be replaced by Arouna Kone against Valencia.

Steven Pienaar and Tony Hibbert were also absent from the final two games of the USA tour.

Martinez told evertontv: "Nikica Jelavic got a bit of a dead leg and he had to come off.

"Steven Pienaar was more of a precaution. Tony Hibbert has got a bit of a niggle but in a couple of weeks he should be in full contention.

"Apart from that everyone else has been able to play their part and work for the team and that is what pre-season is all about."
