Roberto Martinez says Leon Osman was lucky to escape serious injury in the early stages of Everton's 3-0 win against Arsenal.

The Blues midfielder was withdrawn after just seven minutes of the contest following a challenge with Bacary Sagna.

Osman required immediate treatment and received five stitches above his left eye.

The 32-year-old is also suffering from concussion, but Martinez reported that his vice-captain should be available for next Saturday's trip to Sunderland.

He said: "Leon's really lucky to avoid serious injury. He's got a nasty cut that needed stitches on top of his eye and his eyelid was affected.

"But he's fine and will be fine for the weekend."
