LOAN WATCH: Barcelona's Deulofeu impresses Everton's Martinez

Everton boss Roberto Martinez was thrilled with the showing of Gerard Deulofeu in his side's 2-1 Capital One Cup loss to Fulham on Tuesday night.

The 19-year old striker, on loan from Barcelona, combined well with Chelsea loanee Romelu Lukaku in an impressive showing of skill and pace at Craven Cottage in just his second start for the Toffees.

"He's a real threat," Martinez said.

"His play deserved more goals in the first half, and that would have been the difference."
