Martinez: No New Knocks

by Adam Clark @efc_adamclark

Everton manager Roberto Martinez says he has no new injury concerns ahead of Wednesday's clash with champions Manchester United.

The Spaniard confirmed all his players had come through Saturday's fine 4-0 win over Stoke City, meaning Darron Gibson, Arouna Kone and Leighton Baines are his only absentees for the trip to Old Trafford.

"We had no knocks at the weekend, no problems and that was really positive," he said. "We've got a full squad ready for Wednesday."

Manchester United, meanwhile, will be without the suspended Phil Jones after he collected his fifth yellow card of the season in Sunday's 2-2 draw at Tottenham Hotspur.

Robin van Persie and Michael Carrick also sat out the game at White Hart Lane with groin and calf injuries respectively.
