Everton boss Roberto Martinez says Gerard Deulofeu will see plenty of action this season.

The on-loam Barcelona winger impressed in their Capital One Cup defeat to Fulham.

"There's a big gap in terms of physicality between the English and Spanish leagues - it's a lot quicker here and there is a lot more contact, so for players who are artists with the ball like Gerard there will always be a period of adaptation," Martinez said.

"Gerard is doing that very well. He is making the difference when he is on the pitch. He is learning bit by bit, he is very quick and I am sure that in the next few months Gerard will play a very big part in this team."
