The Costa Rica international suffered a broken leg in the 18th minute of Everton's 4-0 victory over Stevenage in the fourth round of the FA Cup in January.
It resulted in the 24-year-old missing the remainder of the Premier League season and Costa Rica's run to the World Cup quarter-finals in Brazil this summer.

It will be very interesting to see what will happen this season for Bryan; it would be a total waste if he is warming the bench. If he can pick up where he left off, he must be a first-team regular. How RM will accommodate both Leighton Baines and Bryan Oviedo in the team though will be fascinating...

As a season ticket holder I seen Brian Oviedo look a real handful on the left in midfield, also a fair bit of a menace across on the left too.
Quick feet an a eye for goal plus a fair amount of assists per minute whilst on the pitch, well worth a midfield role for extra cover when Coleman and Bainesy are pushing on. Mirallas on one side an Oviedo on the other.

Although I'm not entirely sold on Bainesy at DM, it most certainly intrigues me!
However, with Barry and McCarthy in any starting 11, it's definitely not gonna happen.
Would like to see a few experiments to see how it goes. Europa League and the spectre of injuries means that it could be very beneficial. I'm confident that Roberto is way ahead of all of us on these matters anyway!

If Gibson is 100% then I think he starts in midfield over Barry, and maybe that takes until October, but youÂd have to imagine thatÂll happen. Barry is going to end up playing Europa League or vice versa (as you mentioned). He will essentially become a bench player. I think Pienaar is headed there as well.
All of this leaves more opportunity for Baines to play in that DM role and thus Oviedo at LB. But letÂs be honest, IÂm just some dude from Maryland, certainly not a manager.

For both ours and his sake let's just hope his treatment and recovery has been a success.

I'll just be glad when Bryan is is back fit and well from that horrendous injury. I think we shouldn't forget Pienaar either. I think we may well have seen the best of him but he'd still make a good squad member for what's going to be a long and exciting season.
