Trio Available To Face United

John Stones and Bryan Oviedo are fit and available to face Manchester United on Sunday, while Everton can also call on Kevin Mirallas following his recent suspension.

Stones appeared to pick up a knock on duty for England in midweek, while Oviedo had missed the Blues' previous two outings as he recovered from a chest infection.

Mirallas, meanwhile, sat out the same fixtures as Oviedo after being dismissed for two yellow cards against West Ham. The Belgian's two-game ban has now been served.

And with his players all returning from international duty unscathed, Roberto Martinez was pleased to declare the trio eligible to feature at Old Trafford.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference at Finch Farm on Friday morning, the Toffees chief said: "John had just a little knock and is recovering very well from that. He had a good enough introduction with the group yesterday (Thursday), so I don’t expect any problems.

"Bryan Oviedo has come back and has been training for a good period so I would consider him fully fit to get back into the squad.

"Kevin Mirallas has finished his suspension, so we’ve recovered these two bodies from the last game. Everyone else is fully fit and has come back from international duty in good condition."
