Howard made two saves and conceded two goals in the 2-0 loss to Arsenal Sunday.

This is two consecutive games in which Howard has allowed two goals and made only two saves and he's been struggling since his return. Luckily, Howard and Everton's schedule lightens up as they face middle of the table teams over their next three games. Everton travel to the Britannia to take on Stoke this Wednesday in their next match.

Howard allowed two goals and made two saves in the 2-2 draw to Leicester Sunday.

Howard and the Everton defense allowed two goals in a seven minute stretch in the second half and were saved by a lucky own goal to capture a point against the worst team in the Premier League. Both goals were scored off errors by Howard and it will be a game he will want to forget. It's yet another disappointing performance for Everton in a very difficult campaign thus far. Hopefully, the return of Howard can pull Everton out of the rut their in. Everton play again next Sunday in a tough matchup when they travel to take on Arsenal.

Howard returned from a his calf injury Wednesday and played well against Chelsea, making six saves in the 1-0 loss.

Howard looked assured a clean sheet until a late 89th minute slotted finish from Willian broke Toffee hearts and broke the 0-0 draw. It was surprising to see Howard return so soon, but he looked in top form making tough save after tough save to keep Everton alive in the match. He's a great value buy right now coming off injury with a fantastic matchup next weekend when Everton host Leicester.

Howard (calf) is starting Wednesday against Chelsea.

Howard gets a tough matchup with league-leaders Chelsea and should be avoided Wednesday. He could be worth stashing at a discount price after Wednesday's match.

Manager Roberto Martinez said Tuesday that Howard is fully fit following a calf injury, and he could start Wednesday against Chelsea. "Whenever Tim is fit he is our number one," Martinez said.

If Howard is able to start, Joel Robles will return to a reserve role. It's a tough game to come back to, as Howard was beaten six times by Chelsea earlier this season.

Howard (calf) has returned to full training but is highly unlikely to face Liverpool on Saturday. "Tim is training now and it will be important to make the right decision," manager Roberto Martinez said Thursday. "He feels strong and he feels ready. The medical advice is to give him another week just to make sure he is fully healed and we don't take any risks. With any soft tissue problem you need to be a little bit wary but it's incredible how quickly he has recovered and how well he is doing in training. We are going to assess him over the next two or three days but the medical advice is to give him another seven days before he is on the football pitch, so we will keep that in mind."

Despite the medical staff saying Howard needs at least seven more days, Martinez could be hard-pressed to get him back in the starting lineup for next Wednesday's match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, a very tough matchup after playing the Merseyside derby on Saturday. Joel Robles will continue to start in Howard's place until he can return.
