Roberto Martinez says Aiden McGeady is the man to help Everton compensate for Steven Pienaar's absence.

McGeady was handed a start against the Swans after being involved in the previous weekend's later winner over Cardiff.

Pienaar is currently sidelined with a knee problem and could be out for three weeks.

But January signing McGeady is now being tipped by Martinez to have a big impact between now and the end of the season.

The boss told evertontv: "You can see he is a very different footballer with how he enjoys the one-v-one situations. 

"He has got a such an incredible ability - sometimes you can miss his touches. He goes away from players with ease and I thought he was a constant threat. He was very strong and it was a really good game for him to be involved.

"With Steven Pienaar injured, we had a real threat and he was able to perform with a real attacking mentality."

Everton's next home game is against Arsenal on 6 April. Click here to buy tickets.
