Everton’s Funes Mori returns for Sunderland clash

Ramiro Funes MoriEverton‘s Ramiro Funes Mori will feature in the clash with Sunderland on Wednesday evening after completing his three-match suspension.

The Argentina international was sent off in April’s Merseyside derby for a horrific tackle on Liverpool striker Divock Origi.

The centre half subsequently missed the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United, as well as Premier League encounter with Bournemouth and Leicester City, but returns to the squad for the trip to the Stadium of Light.

Manager Roberto Martinez also revealed that Gareth Barry could play a part in the penultimate game of the 2015/16 season.

But Phil Jagielka, Seamus Coleman, Gerard Deulofeu and Tony Hibbert remain sidelined with injury.

The Catalan said: “Clearly, Ramiro Funes Mori has finished his suspension so he will be available for the squad.

“Gareth Barry has got a good opportunity, a good option, for the trip.

“I don’t expect Seamus Coleman, Phil Jagielka or Gerard Deulofeu [to be fit]. They will have a little fitness test for the weekend but I don’t think they are going to be available for tomorrow.

“He’s (Hibbert) got a twisted ankle. He was very unfortunate [in training] on the Thursday before the Leicester game.”
