Updates from Thursday, Jan. 23

Seamus Coleman will be missing from Everton's squad when they travel to Stevenage in the FA Cup.

Roberto Martinez was quoted by the club's official Twitter account:

---Original Text---

It didn't all go to plan for Everton on Monday evening, Jan. 20, but the Toffees' 1-1 draw against West Brom wasn't the only thing that will have left Roberto Martinez upset.

Seamus Coleman had to be withdrawn on the 79th-minute mark after the Republic of Ireland international pulled up with a hamstring injury.

The Premier League's official Twitter account confirmed the substitution, while the Liverpool Echo specified the injury:

It's bad news for Martinez's team, which has only just brought first-choice left-back Leighton Baines back into the fold after his own period on the sidelines.    

What's more, the Spaniard's list of absences continues to grow, with Ross Barkley, Gerard Deulofeu and Steven Pienaar already among those out of action.

The injury's timing couldn't have been worse, too, considering the second installment of this season's Merseyside derby is next Tuesday (Jan. 28).

At this point, it would seem likely that 25-year-old Coleman will be unavailable for the trip to Anfield, which promises to be a tight affair if the 3-3 extravaganza at Goodison Park in November was anything to go by.

Coleman has been an essential figure in Martinez's remodelling of the Everton line-up this season, making 26 scoring chances for his team in just 22 games, per Squawka.
