Everton boss Roberto Martinez says Darron Gibson and Antolin Alcaraz remain sidelined with injury.

Gibson suffered a knee injury in the pre-season friendly against Real Betis last month while Alcaraz is recovering from a hernia operation.

Martinez said: "Darron and Antolin are in training with the first team.

"Now it is a case of getting the match fitness. That could take a couple of weeks, depending on how they react.

"Darron and Antolin won't be fit for the weekend but they are not going to be too far away. For Darron, in a couple of weeks, he'll be getting really close."
