Everton boss Roberto Martinez is determined to get to the bottom of James McCarthy's hamstring issues.

The midfielder returned from a short spell out with a hamstring problem last weekend but limped off after only half an hour of Thursday's Europa League clash against Wolfsburg.

The Toffees boss said: "We're going to get him checked today. The reaction was good from last night but we'll find out exactly what the extent is.

"The reason that he's been affected with these sort of injuries is because of the amount of games he's been playing," said Martinez. "His body is getting used to the demands of playing European football and international football and the domestic competition, so we need to make sure we find the right balance."
