Roberto Martinez is optimistic Steven Pienaar will be able to play again this season.

The South African has been sidelined since limping out of Everton’s FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Arsenal last month with what turned out to be a knee cartilage problem.

Pienaar has spent the last three-and-a-half weeks recovering with the Club’s medical team at Finch Farm.

And Martinez says it would be ‘positive’ news if the 32-year-old can feature in Everton’s end-of-season push for Europe.

The Blues have seven league fixtures remaining, starting with Arsenal’s visit to Goodison Park on Sunday.

“Stevie is doing well,” Martinez told evertontv. “Obviously it was a real setback to lose him.

“Recovering from [an injury to] the cartilage in the knee can be tricky but at the moment he is recovering well.

“I’m hopeful that we can see Stevie before the season ends and that is where the focus goes.

“But he’s been lively and has been working well. It is going to be really positive for us if we can get him back before the season ends.”
