Everton are in action this weekend in a tough fixture against Manchester United to start off their post-international break run of games.
Everton come into the fixture on the back of a tight draw with Liverpool in the Merseyside derby whilst United are reeling from a 3-0 defeat to Arsenal in their last outing.
Of course United have been boosted by the news that captain Wayne Rooney is fit to take on his former team.
But Everton themselves have had some good news in the injury department with not one, not two but three first-teamers back in training this week.
John Stones has been struggling with a knock to his knee picked up against Reading in the Capital One Cup last month. He has finally shook off the problem and is all set to feature. Then there is Seamus Coleman. The swashbuckling right-back has not featured for Everton since the 3-1 win over Chelsea in September - but did feature for the Republic of Ireland during the international break.
The third name is Tom Cleverley. The former Manchester United man is ahead of schedule and took part in some light training at Finch Farm this week as he steps up his recovery from an ankle problem picked up against Tottenham Hotspur last month.
Everton are slowly working their way back to a fully-fit squad that looks very capable of challenging for European qualification this season.
