Wayne Rooney has trained great this week.

He is in really good form. Getting him back is a good thing.

He just wasn't right with his toe at times in the last game.

Martinez and players hurting after damaging loss

Everton boss Roberto Martinez admitted he and his players were hurting after their pursuit of a top-four Premier League finish was damaged by a 3-2 home loss to Crystal Palace.

It is a reaction of disappointment because the result is a hurtful one, especially with the expectations we had.

I thought in the first half, we wanted to win so much that we forgot about the simple basics that you need to do to win a football game.

The way we defended carried somehow a bit of fear and that left us a bit exposed. It is not normal for us to play with that feeling.

I thought the second half was completely different - we changed the approach, it was a bit more positive and it was back to being ourselves.

But I think in every aspect the game played well into Crystal Palace's hands.
