Roberto Martinez has been speaking exclusively to evertontv ahead of the game at Manchester City.
He covered a range of topics and discussed in detail several members of the Blues squad.
As well as all things Everton he also covered the international break and what it means for him and his players.
In the two-part interview, you'll hear him talk about:
- How Ross Barkley wouldn't let England down if he was called upon for the Three Lions' crunch qualifying games;
- The importance of the international break for Steven Pienaar and Tony Hibbert as they seek a return to fitness;
- Leon Osman's versatility in the Everton midfield;
- Tackling Manchester City this weekend;
- How Romelu Lukaku's second goal - from Tim Howard's long punt - wasn't a lucky break
