Martinez defends use of loan system

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has defended his use of the loan system, according to the Express.

The former Wigan Athletic boss faced criticism from Arsene Wenger ahead of the Toffees’ clash with the Gunners last weekend, with the Frenchman branding the loan system ‘indefensible’.

Romelu Lukaku, Gareth Barry and Gerard Deulofeu have all been brought in on temporary deals from three of Europe’s top clubs, and while Martinez says that he accepts the opinions of others, he believes borrowing players from other teams is a vital part of the game.

Everton beat Arsenal 3-0 last Sunday to move to within a point of the top-four, and will leapfrog the North London side if they avoid defeat at bottom of the table Sunderland on Saturday afternoon.

The Black Cats are the only away side to have won at Goodison Park this season, and Everton are priced at 3/4 to get revenge with victory at the Stadium of Light.
