Steven Pienaar missed yesterday's match at West Brom because of a groin injury picked up against Norwich, Roberto Martinez explained today.

The South African was substituted in the second half against the Canaries after picking up the injury but while it was enough to keep him out of the game at the Hawthorns, Martinez doesn't anticipate it being a serious issue and expects Pienaar back soon.

The manager also reported that Gerard Deulofeu's recovery is on track and progressing well in Spain. He didn't provide a timescale for the Barcelona forward's return but said that the two clubs are assessing his condition every three days to determine when he can return to Finch Farm and begin the final phase of his recovery.
