Martinez Confirms Kone Injury
Striker's absence at Villa down to knock picked up against Hull.
Roberto Martinez has confirmed an injury to Arouna Kone meant the forward was unavailable for the 2-0 win at Aston Villa on Saturday.
The Blues emerged from the Midlands victorious thanks to second-half goals from Romelu Lukaku and Leon Osman, but Ivorian Kone was not named in the matchday squad.
After the game, Martinez explained his absence as being down to a knock sustained a week prior.
"It was during the last game against Hull City," said the Everton manager.
"He received the ball and then got a strong challenge on his knee.
"We're hoping that it's not going to be too much of a serious problem, but he's going to miss the best part of four days."
