Coleman to miss FA Cup clash

Injury crisis for Toffees

Republic of Ireland full-back Seamus Coleman is set to miss Everton's FA Cup semi-final clash with Manchester United on Saturday due to a hamstring injury.

The defender limped off against Southampton last weekend and was ruled out of the Merseyside derby on Wednesday which saw the Toffees beaten 4-0 by Liverpool at Anfield.

With manager Roberto Martinez under increased pressure to keep his job following a poor league campaign which has left Everton languishing in lower mid-table, the club have turned to the FA Cup in the hope of salvaging something from the season.

However, the Goodison Park outfit have been beset by an injury crisis as they prepare to face Manchester United at Wembley with club captain Phil Jagielka, fellow defender John Stones and midfielder Gareth Barry all facing late fitness tests.

Jagielka has not played since injuring a hamstring at Watford two weeks ago, while Stones was substituted at Anfield on Wednesday with stomach cramps.

Former Aston Villa and Manchester City midfielder Barry was replaced at half-time in the 4-0 defeat with a groin injury.

"Knowing Phil, he is desperate to play but we are not going to say no and we are going to look at his feelings rather than the injury," Martinez explained. "We are quite positive about John."
