Everton have marked both the return of Seamus Coleman and the absence of James McCarthy for their Premier League clash with Leicester City on Wednesday night.
The Irish international duo are at vastly opposing stages of the recovery process from their respective broken legs, as Coleman prepares to return to the first team while McCarthy begins the long road back.
To ensure that the club are still thinking of him, Everton have made McCarthy the cover star of their match programme, in the first Premier League match since the midfielder suffered the injury against West Bromwich Albion earlier this month.

For Coleman, meanwhile, the club have organised flags for every home seat at the ground for fans to wave and show their support for the returning right-back.
Welcome Back Seamus…

Toffees boss Sam Allardyce has confirmed that Coleman will be in the matchday squad for Wednesday’s match, but it is likely that the Ireland captain will be starting from the bench.
