Everton's Fernandes happy to be injury-free

Everton midfielder Manuel Fernandes was happy to get a rare start in Sunday's victory over Derby.

He told evertonfc.com: "It's been a little bit disappointing for me. Things are starting to get better but when you get injured it's always a blow.

"I'm just trying to get past that and help in the five games ahead. The injury has been related to both my groin and the previous surgery I've had for a hernia.

"Now things are settling down so I feel much better."
