• Distin needs to fight for his place

    Roberto Martinez says that Sylvain Distin is an important player in the Everton setup but he needs to fight for his place in the first team. The Frenchman hasn't played since the disappointing League Cup defeat at Swansea last month and Antolin Alcaraz was preferred as John Stones' replacement for Saturday's win over Aston Villa.

    Everton 3 - 0 Aston Villa

    Everton won at Goodison Park for the first time in the Premier League this season as they convincingly put Aston Villa to the sword. The match was notable for the welcome return of Ross Barkley, who laid on the second goal for Romelu Lukaku, while Seamus Coleman marked his own return from injury with the Blues' third. Earlier, Phil Jagielka had headed home the opening goal from Leighton Baines's cross, his third goal in four games for club and country.

    Young star progressing well in training

    Roberto Martinez says that Ross Barkley is reacting well to his return to training and is "really close" to seeing his first action of 2014-15. The 20-year-old tore a medial ligament in his knee on the eve of the season and has not featured at all during the first three months of the campaign.
