It’s great that he’s committed long-term to Everton and he will enjoy some of his best football here in the years ahead."

Ramiro Funes Mori is closing in on a return to first-team action after stepping up his recovery from a serious knee injury.

The Everton defender has enjoyed a couple of run outs for the under-23s this month and has taken to Instagram to confirm his availability. "Ready to play for the Blues" having missed the last 11 months. The group have just enjoyed a hugely successful warm-weather training camp in Dubai and the return of Funes Mori provides a welcome boost following the news that Manchester City loanee Eliaquim Mangala looks to be sidelined "long term" due to a serious knee ligament injury. Phil Jagielka has also been absent in recent weeks due to an unspecified problem while Sam Allardyce confirmed the Toffees are trying to get Seamus Coleman back as quickly as possible following a minor muscular tweak. Leighton Baines has entered the final phase of his rehab and will be back in contention very soon after spending more than 3 months out due to a calf strain.

Everton veteran Leighton Baines has returned to team training this week in Dubai as he eyes his return from injury.

The left-back suffered a calf injury in Gameweek 13 against Southampton at the end of November and has not seen any action since Sam Allardyce took over as manager. While he still doesn't have a return date in mind, Baines said he has his eyes on being a valuable contributor to the Toffees in the last third of the season: "That will probably be determined by the fitness staff and the technical staff. Between them everything is very bespoke now and they’ll look at the numbers and see how my condition correlates to the other lads when I’m doing the same sessions as them, and obviously get my feedback as well. Hopefully I’ll be available to the manager sooner rather than later.

There are growing concerns at Goodison Park that centre-back Eliaquim Mangala may have played his last game for the club.

The Manchester City defender joined Everton on a six-month loan deal in January but was forced off last weekend against Crystal Palace following an awkward fall. Although Mangala had a scan scheduled before the team flew out to a warm-weather training camp in Dubai, it’s believed that those results were inconclusive, and tests remain ongoing. However, reports do indicate that there is knee ligament damage, but the precise details and nature are currently unknown. Depending upon the severity, a tear to either collateral ligament – medial or lateral – is likely to result in 2/3 months out while a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament could keep Mangala sidelined for the remainder of 2018. Fortunately, Ramiro Funes Mori is on the comeback trail having missed the previous 11 months and following a couple of appearances for the development side, the Argentine will be back soon to help bolster the ranks.

Seamus Coleman is back in the Everton treatment room after suffering a muscle injury during the win over Crystal Palace.

The Republic of Ireland international was making only his second Premier League start after spending the previous 10 months working his way back from a double leg fracture. However, his afternoon was cut short after suffering a setback. "I don't know what Seamus' injury is but he's going for a scan tomorrow," Sam Allardyce said. "It's unrelated to his broken leg. It's more a muscle injury. The scan will be taken tomorrow but we are going warm weather training next week which is good, a bit of warmth a bit of sea." Minor niggles and muscular strains are to be expected given the amount of time Coleman has missed as his body adapts to the increase in load and the rigours of playing competitively again. Everton are back in action on February 24 – Watford away – but if he fails to recover then Allardyce is likely to opt for a Jonjo Kenny as a like-for-like replacement.

Everton worked past a humiliating loss to Arsenal last week with a 3-1 win at home against Crystal Palace.

It all started with the onset of the second half as the Toffees scored just 45 seconds in when Gylfi Sigurdsson latched onto a Oumar Niasse pass and sent a shot from the edge of the box that deflected off James Tomkins for the first goal. Just six minutes later, Niasse was at it again, this time heading home a cross from Cuco Martina to double the Everton lead. The home side only continued its dominance in the 76th minute when Tom Davies tapped in the final tally, although the clean sheet was ruined by a penalty awarded after an Ashley Williams' handball.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored a second half consolation goal but it was all Arsenal as the Gunners beat the Toffees 5-1 on Saturday

It was just never went well for Everton at the Emirates. Arsenal raced out to an early 3 goal lead and ended the first half with four and it could have been six or seven. The defense was miserable allowing the Gunners opportunity after opportunity.

Everton officially announced the signing of Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 26-year-old has struggled for playing time since the arrival of Pep Guardiola, spending last season on loan at Valencia. This season, Mangala has been more fortunate with nine Premier League appearances so far, but has not played in a league match in 2018. With the arrival of Aymeric Laporte in a club-record £57million move, Mangala was deemed surplus to requirements with the league leaders. Said Mangala: "I am thrilled to have the opportunity to play for Everton and I cannot wait to pull on the royal blue jersey for the first time and give my all for the supporters."

Shouts of "Theo, Theo!" rang throughout Goodison Park in Everton's 2-1 win against Leicester City thanks to the club's newest signing.

Walcott arrived at the club two weeks ago today and has wasted no time in getting back to his old self with the change of scenery. After recording an assist in his Everton debut over the weekend in the FA Cup, the former Arsenal winger scored both of the club's goals on Wednesday within 14 minutes of each other. Starting in the 25th minute, Gylfi Sigurdsson came away with a misplaced ball and sent a low cross to Walcott in front of goal for the opener. And then in the 39th, Walcott doubled the lead by latching onto a Michael Keane header at the back post. More good news for Everton came in the return of Seamus Coleman, who missed 10 months with a broken leg injury.

Seamus Coleman will make his long-awaited return to first-team action against Leicester City on Wednesday.

Speaking ahead of the Premier League clash at Goodison Park tomorrow, manager Sam Allardyce confirmed the Republic of Ireland international would be included following his recent run out for the under-23s. Coleman has been sidelined since suffering a double leg fracture back in March 2017, but having trained regularly, and after coming through 58 minutes unscathed in a development match, he is now ready to return. "Seamus is in the squad for Wednesday and it seems, hopefully, that from here on in, he can have an injury-free run until the end of the season," said Allardyce. "He is a very important player. But, if and when he does play in the team, he needs time. He has been out an awful long time, as was the case with Yannick Bolasie." James McCarthy is recovering well from surgery while Funes Mori is back training with the squad, although he is not taking part in full sessions.

Seamus Coleman took a major step toward returning from a horrific injury by playing for the U23s on Tuesday.

Coleman has been out since last March after suffering a broken leg while with the Irish national team. But on Tuesday, he made his return to action by playing 58 minutes for the U23s at Goodison Park. The goal is to get the right-back in with the first team next month after nearly a year out. Said Coleman: "To be able to walk out of the tunnel and see the stadium was great. I managed to get some minutes under my belt and that was fantastic. I treated it like a first-team game and gave it everything. I've been looking forward to that moment for the last few months..."

James McCarthy has been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering an "awful injury" at Goodison Park on Saturday.

The Everton midfielder was stretchered off following a challenge on West Brom attacker Salomon Rondon on the hour mark, a tackle which left McCarthy lying in agony and the Venezuelan visibly shaken. "It's a tibular and fibular [double leg] fracture compounded. A very nasty injury," Sam Allardyce told BBC Sport. "We’ll do the operation as quick as we can." Average recovery time is around nine months, although teammate Seamus Coleman has already spent over 300 days on the sidelines. McCarthy has endured a stop / start season due to a persistent hamstring problem but having returned to the fore in December, the 27-year-old was hoping to push on in 2018 following an injury plagued couple of years. Idrissa Gueye is the player most likely to come in to sit alongside Morgan Schneiderlin.

Thanks to Oumar Niasse's equalizer, Everton secured a point at home in a 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion.

Sporting a new-look side with Cenk Tosun flanked by Theo Walcott up top, the Toffees struggled to mesh. Things were compounded when Jay Rodriguez put the Baggies ahead in the seventh minute after a Grzegorz Krychowiak pass found a breach in the Everton defense. But in the final 30 minutes of the match, Sam Allardyce sent Wayne Rooney and Oumar Niasse on to change the match, and within 56 seconds of entering, Niasse played the star. Following a scramble in the box, Rooney played the ball across to Walcott, who flicked on to Niasse for the equalizer. But the point comes at a cost as James McCarthy was stretchered off in the 57th minute with a gruesome injury.

Everton officially unveiled its newest signing in Arsenal winger Theo Walcott in a deal worth more than £20 million.

A move finally materialized for Walcott, after a year of rumors, in a season where he has only made six Premier League appearances. The 28-year-old leaves Arsenal after nearly 12 years in North London and becomes Everton's second signing of the season after Besiktas' Cenk Tosun. "I’m very ambitious and I’ve come here because I want the Club to push to the next level," Walcott said. "And with the players that have come in, I feel like the next level can be reached. I’m very excited to be starting a new chapter and I felt this was the right place for me to be. The manager is very ambitious and I feel like the Club is going in the right direction."

Everton is set to make another winter signing with Theo Walcott expected to leave Arsenal this week.

The clubs have reportedly reached a £20 million agreement that would send Walcott to Merseyside after more than a decade with the Gunners. The winger arrived at the club's training grounds on Tuesday for a medical after a week of negotiations. Still, manager Sam Allardyce said he won't count his chickens before the deal is fully confirmed: "I don't get optimistic otherwise I get disappointed so we will wait and see," Allardyce said. I will be very excited and enthused once somebody, if it is not Theo then somebody else, has signed on the dotted line. In this window you don't get too optimistic because so many things can happen in a short space of time."
