The Costa Rican made only his second Premier League start of the season against Sunderland last Sunday but was withdrawn after 25 minutes when he pulled up holding the back of his thigh in the Blues' 6-2 win.

"Bryan Oviedo picked up a hamstring problem that may keep him out of action for two to three weeks, but it's nothing too serious," Roberto Martinez said in his press conference yesterday.
"We hope that he can come back for the Aston Villa game, if not, the Bournemouth game (on 28th November)."
