McCarthy had an assist to Aaron Lennon in the 1-1 draw to Swansea City Saturday.

McCarthy is a more holding position midfielder and only has a goal and an assist on 12 shots in 22 games this season. He still is one of the leaders on the team and is more valuable for the little things he does. The young Scot will continue to start for Everton against Burnley next Saturday.

McCarthy had a goal and five clearances in the 3-0 win over Newcastle Sunday.

McCarthy was great Sunday as he not only led the team in passing accuracy at 90%, but scored a goal and cleared a ball off the line to save the elusive clean sheet. McCarthy called the team out two weeks ago and this performance solidifies his status as one of the teams leaders and shows how important he is to the team. Look for him to start next Sunday when Everton take on QPR.

McCarthy was subbed off at halftime of Sunday's match against Newcastle due to a hamstring injury, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Manager Roberto Martinez said the substitution was a precaution, but McCarthy is certainly considered an injury doubt for Thursday's match against Hull City.
