Everton boss Roberto Martinez has confirmed Seamus Coleman will miss this weekend’s FA Cup tie with Stevenage.

Coleman limped off in the 1-1 draw with West Brom on Monday with a “minor soft issue injury”.

The 25-year-old joins Gerard Deulofeu, Steven Pienaar, Ross Barkley and Antolin Alcaraz in the treatment room, alongside long-term absentees Darron Gibson and Arouna Kone.

Saturday’s fourth round tie kicks off at 3pm at the Lamex Stadium.
