Against Sunderland on Saturday, Coleman featured at full-back for the eighth successive match. And after two seasons spent largely in midfield, it's a role he'd like to make his own.
"I've really enjoyed it," he said. "It's been a while really since I've played there for Everton. The last time I had a run of games there was probably when I was at Blackpool (on-loan) but I've really enjoyed it.
"I need to keep doing well because there's some good players who'll be wanting to come in. It's different to playing in midfield, but I've always said it's my natural position."
