Everton hit by Pienaar injury blow

Everton midfielder Steven Pienaar faces four weeks out with a hamstring injury.

The South African forward sat out the 1-0 win over Chelsea after he sustained the problem during training at the club's Finch Farm base on Friday.

Roberto Martinez, whose side are unbeaten after four games, had hoped Pienaar would be up and running again quickly but the problem is more troublesome than it first appeared, says the Daily Mail.
