Two of Everton's key men will be back for Sunday's clash with Chelsea.
Everton boss Marco Silva addressed the media during his pre-match press conference today, and shared news of a double injury boost, suggesting that both Seamus Coleman and Leighton Baines are fit and available for selection for the Chelsea game, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.
The Toffees currently sit in 11th position in the Premier League table, and they will be desperate to head into the two-week international break having earned a positive result against the west London outfit.
And their chances of doing just that will be greatly enhanced by having Coleman and Baines back available.
The 30-year-old Irishman missed Everton's last game against Newcastle, whilst the 34-year-old left-back has be absent for his side's last five games in all competitions.
Silva spoke to reporters today, and provided good news for Blues fans, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo:
“Coleman keeps working, it’s ok. Leighton also."
Despite the fact that both players are arguably already past their best, they still remain very important players for Everton, and Silva will be delighted to have them both back for the Chelsea game.
