Roberto Martinez provides Everton fitness update

Everton are set to take on West Ham United in their next Premier League match.

Roberto Martinez has admitted at his press conference earlier today that there is a question mark over Byran Oviedo’s fitness.

Oviedo picked up a knock during Everton’s match against Aston Villa in midweek, and he had to be replaced by Leighton Baines for the closing stages of the match.

The Costa Rican international could now be set to miss out on Everton’s next match, which comes against West Ham United on Saturday.

Martinez did have some better news on the injury front, though, as Muhamed Besic and Darron Gibson should both be fit.

Martinez’s task of replacing Oviedo has been made more difficult as Leighton Baines is struggling with fitness.

The England international has been forced to see a specialist today, to get to the bottom of his foot injury.

Everton will be looking to beat West Ham to continue their fine run of form, which has seen them win five of their last six matches.

The Toffees are in 11th place in the Premier League table, but a win over the Hammers would take them to within five points of the top six.
