Seamus Coleman will undergo a scan on an unspecified soft-tissue problem after he was forced off at half-time of today's 3-1 win over Crystal Palace.

Following 10 months out with a broken leg, the Irishman played 90 minutes of his comeback match against Leicester 10 days ago and was restored to the starting XI this afternoon after missing the defeat at Arsenal last weekend through illness.

Coleman did not reappear for the second half at Goodison Park this afternoon, however, with Sam Allardyce citing a "muscle" injury.

It was one of three injury-related changes the manager had to make as Eliaquim Mangala came off with a knock to the knee just before the interval and Idrissa Gueye made way in the second half with a minor problem of his own.
