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.

Coleman (hamstring) is available off the bench for Everton's Premier League opener against Leicester City on Saturday.

Manager Roberto Martinez said Friday that Coleman was deemed fit, but it appears he will give his star defender a little more time to recover. As long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks in training next week, he should be back in the starting XI Aug. 23 against Arsenal.

Coleman has been deemed fit for Everton's Premier League opener Saturday against Leicester City, the Irish Post reports. "Seamus is training with the team and had the 'all okay' from the scan yesterday so that's very good news," manager Roberto Martinez said.

Coleman is an integral part of the Everton back line and with his ability to score goals, he is easily considered an elite fantasy defender in most leagues.

Coleman did not travel to Bangkok with the rest of the team in order to prevent re-aggravating a hamstring injury, the club's official web site reports.

There doesn't appear to be anything here that would warrant Coleman not being ready for the Premier League opener, but it's certainly something worth monitoring once the team returns to England.

Coleman signed a five-year contract extension with Everton on Friday, the club's official web site reports.

Coleman had a tremendous season with Everton last year, and the club will be very happy to have retained his services despite interest from some of the biggest clubs. He was named to the PFA Team of the Year last season after netting seven goals in 41 appearances.

Coleman had a breakout season for Everton, scoring six goals and recording two assists while also grabbing 15 clean sheets in his 36 games.

Coleman was the top-scoring defender in most fantasy leagues and showed what a talent he is for Everton. He is a very versatile player who can play defense as well as some midfield. Coleman and Leighton Baines have proven to be the most dangerous tandem of defensive left and right backs in the league and will be a force in the 2014-15 season.

Coleman had an own goal during Everton's 0-2 loss at Southampton on Saturday.

Both of Southampton's goals in the match were own goals, with Antolin Alcaraz putting the first one past Tim Howard in the first minute of play. It was a stunning loss for the Toffees, who continue to trail Arsenal by one point for the last Champions League spot, with the Gunners playing Newcastle at home Monday.
