Martinez: Cleverley back in 6 weeks

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has revealed that midfielder Tom Cleverley is expected back in 6-8 weeks, but feels that the England international will only need 6.

Cleverley was injured in his sides last outing against Spurs and has picked up a ligament injury, but Martinez says that he will be back before any medical report says he will.

“With that sort of injury, ligament damage, you can normally expect a period of six to eight weeks.

“Knowing Tom and how fit and strong he is, maybe we are looking at the six week period rather than the eight week period. It’s along those lines.

“He’s a strong boy and hopefully he’ll be back quicker than any medical report will say.”
