Everton defender John Stones is happy to play anywhere for manager Roberto Martinez.

Deployed at centre-half in his first flurry of Everton appearances, Stones replaced Seamus Coleman at right-back during Monday's 1-1 draw at West Brom.

Stones told evertontv: "I played at right-back a lot for Barnsley and the manager has played me at centre-half here for a few games. I'll easily play both positions.

"We work a lot in training on positions so I'm quite used to both - where I need to be and my jobs. The manager drills it into us and I'm fine with whatever position he plays me.

"I came on at right-back against West Brom, so it's an added bonus for the manager and I to know I can do both if needed."
