Everton boss Martinez ready to give Traore Premier League debut

Everton boss Roberto Martinez says Lacina Traore will see some action tonight against Crystal Palace.

Although the 23-year-old is fit enough to figure, Martinez is treating his new acquisition carefully.

He said: "He is progressing really well. I didn't expect him to be available just yet but he is. It's just a case of getting him that match fitness to avoid any sort of risk.

"He is not far off. I think he will be involved somehow but I don't think he's ready to play 90 minutes yet."
