Everton manager Roberto Martinez said Friday that Coleman will face a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's Merseyside derby due to a head injury that has kept him out of the last two games.

Coleman suffered the injury last week against VfL Wolfsburg in the Europa League, and while he was available off the bench to face Crystal Palace last weekend, he did not play. If Coleman sits out again, John Stones will likely start in his place.

Coleman is available off the bench for Sunday's Premier League match against West Brom.

Coleman picked up a small head injury in Thursday's Europa League match against VfL Wolfsburg, which is why he's not starting Sunday. However, he did not suffer a concussion, so he should return soon. John Stones will start in his place.

Coleman had an eventful game Saturday grabbing an assist and an own goal in the 6-3 loss to Chelsea.

It was just an absolutely rough day for Everton as they seemingly allowed every shot to find the back of the net. Coleman did look solid though, even with the paltry defensive performance. Look for Coleman to continue to be offensively productive and for the defense to step up soon as well.

Coleman scored the opening goal for Everton in a 2-2 draw Arsenal on Saturday.

Coleman got the start after missing the Premier League opener with a lingering hamstring injury, but he was deemed fit earlier in the week and he paid dividends right away. While the clean sheet looked promising for awhile, Arsenal eventually broke through with two late goals to get the draw. Up next is a tough home match against Chelsea.

Coleman is expected to start Saturday's Premier League match against Arsenal. "Seamus was fully fit from a medical point of view Saturday [against Leicester City] and that was a real boost," manager Roberto Martinez said Tuesday. "He has been working really well, and he was desperate to be part of the squad on Saturday. I think now it's fair to say that he's considered fully fit and ready to join the group and help the team in any game."

Coleman came on in the 85th minute of Saturday's Premier League opener against Leicester City after dealing with a hamstring injury, but now that he's fully fit, he will check back into the lineup against a very strong Arsenal attack.

Coleman (hamstring) came on in the 85th minute of Everton's 2-2 draw with Leicester City on Saturday.

Coleman was held out of the starting XI, as manager Roberto Martinez did not feel his hamstring was strong enough to start. The matchup against Leicester City was an enticing one from a fantasy perspective, and Coleman could return for two tough upcoming fixtures against Arsenal and Chelsea.
