Everton have received some positive fitness news about three key players ahead of their Premier League clash with Aston Villa this weekend.
Leighton Baines, Seamus Coleman and Magaye Gueye all have a chance of being involved for David Moyes' side for the meeting at Goodison Park.
The Toffees have made an indifferent start to the new campaign, but claimed their first win in their last game at Blackburn.
However, Baines is expected to be fit, despite withdrawing from the England squad with a hamstring injury earlier in the week.
Coleman and Gueye could also both be in contention to play against Villa after being out with injuries since pre-season.
Back and available
Moyes told Evertonfc.com: "It looks like Seamus Coleman is back and available, Magaye had a broken toe, he is back and available.
"Johnny Heitinga had a bit of a knock but hopefully he will be okay.
"Leighton has had a problem as well but he has trained today so I am hoping he will be fine."
"One of them hasn't played since mid-April, one hasn't played since June and they haven't had any pre-season games so that has to be a big consideration.
"It has to be something the supporters understand. We have to take a bit of time to get them ready. The players we were chasing at the end (of the transfer window) haven't all come from places where we're ready to start."
