Toffees boss Roberto Martinez has admitted that he is relieved to see his side improve at the back after conceding a hatful of goals during the opening weeks of the campaign.

Ross Barkley is expected to be available, despite playing twice in five days on his return from injury as well as suffering a cut above his eye on Thursday night.
