However, the 28-year-old is now aiming for a stunning Christmas return after completing a gruelling solo session at Finch Farm on Friday morning.

Coleman was seen running with resistance around his waist before engaging in some sweat-inducing sprints.

And after splashing the cash on some big names in the transfer window, Koeman will surely be delighted to see Coleman working hard as he targets a first-team return.

But the Irishman isn’t the only long-term crock for Everton, with Ramiro Funes Mori and Yannick Bolasie also sidelined with devastating injuries.

All three will miss tomorrow’s clash with Stoke at Goodison Park tomorrow afternoon.

The Gunners have looked mighty fine in pre-season – winning both the Emirates Cup and Community Shield in recent weeks.

And they’re sure to want to start their Premier League campaign with a victory over Leicester.

The north London side have beaten Leicester at home in their last 10 Premier League fixtures – the most out of any side in the division.

While James McCarthy and Ross Barkley are also likely to sit out the fixture as doubts remain over the latter’s future.

Tottenham and Chelsea have been strongly linked with a move for Barkley, who has entered the final year of his contract after refusing to sign a new deal.

But after warning that the England international was set to leave, Koeman has performed a dramatic U-turn and now insists Barkley could stay for the campaign.

The Dutchman said: “If there’s no interest he will be part of the team. He is training with Everton, he is part of the team and training in a good way.”
