Everton will be without Steven Pienaar for the visit of Chelsea on Saturday but manager Roberto Martinez is hopeful Romelu Lukaku and Darron Gibson will be available.

Midfielder Pienaar had to go off after just 10 minutes against Arsenal on Saturday due to a groin problem while forward Lukaku hurt his toe.

And Martinez reported: “They have both been assessed and Stevie P is going to miss the game at the weekend.

“He is the one that is going to take a little bit of time.

"Stevie is going to be out and he is going to join Arouna Kone and Bryan Oviedo, who are the only other two players that are not available.

"Romelu, we will keep assessing him. He has reacted well in the 48 hours after the game.

"At the moment it is too early to know if he will be available at the weekend, but I am quite positive with Rom."

Gibson missed much of the 2013/14 season after injuring a knee while on international duty with the Republic of Ireland but is now fit again, although he did not feature against Arsenal or Leicester on opening day.

"Darron Gibson is fully fit and I consider him part of the squad," said Martinez.

"He will be ready from now on to join the group and compete for a place."
