Everton boss Roberto Martinez is set to welcome Darron Gibson back for their Capital One Cup clash at Fulham.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez is set to welcome Darron Gibson back for their Capital One Cup clash at Fulham.

Gibson's return will also be a welcome one for Martinez as it increases options in central midfield.

"Darron I consider fully fit," said the Toffees boss.

"He has been working extremely well and has joined the group so that is a great positive for us."

Striker Arouna Kone could also be involved after being left out at West Ham as he was not entirely right after a knee problem.

"He was 95% at the weekend and we didn't want to take the risk. Kone has a 99% chance he will be available," said Martinez.
