Everton manager Roberto Martinez has recalled the fit-again Seamus Coleman to the Everton side as the Blues take on Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

The Irishman’s return to the starting line-up is one of three changes to the team that came from behind to defeat Aston Villa last time out.

The other players to come into the starting XI are former Spurs man Steven Pienaar, who replaces Aiden McGeady, and Steven Naismith – who came off the bench to net the equalising goal against Villa – come in for Ross Barkley.

Both McGeady and Barkley drop to the bench where they are joined by Gerard Deulofeu, fit again after injury, and Lacina Traore, who makes his first appearance on an Everton team sheet since his loan move from Monaco.

Tim Howard stays in goal, with Coleman, Phil Jagielka and Sylvain Distin in front of him, Gareth Barry and James McCarthy anchor the midfield, and Naismith, Pienaar and Leon Osman support Kevin Mirallas in attack.

Completing the bench are John Stones, Tony Hibbert and Joel Robles.
