Irish Duo Fit To Face Gunners

by Daniel Alston @efc_danalston

Seamus Coleman and Darron Gibson are both available for selection for this weekend's game against Arsenal.
 
Ahead of Saturday’s sell-out at Goodison Park, Roberto Martinez confirmed he has no new injury concerns and that the Republic of Ireland duo are ready if required.
 
Coleman recovered from a hamstring complaint sustained during pre-season to emerge from the bench late on at Leicester City last weekend, while Gibson could now be in line for his first competitive appearance since suffering anterior cruciate ligament damage in October last year.
 
"Seamus made a brief appearance last weekend and it was important to see that he was back to full fitness," said Martinez at his pre-match press conference on Thursday. "I expect him to be available for the weekend.
 
"Darron Gibson has been working really well this week as well and has put in a lot of work for his own programme.
 
"So, apart from the long-term injuries of Bryan Oviedo, Arouna Kone and Ross Barkley, everyone is fit and available."

Opponents Arsenal will be missing former Blues midfielder Mikel Arteta, who is sidelined with an ankle problem, while forward Theo Walcott (knee) is out until September. Yaya Sanogo, Ryo Miyaichi (both hamstring), Kieran Gibbs (muscle), Serge Gnabry (knee) and David Ospina (hip/thigh) are also expected to be absent for the Gunners.
