Roberto Martinez: Leighton Baines apologised to me after commenting on Everton’s poor form

Baines spoke out after a 1-0 defeat at Manchester United as Everton lost a third successive league game.

“I just don’t feel as though the chemistry is quite there with the team on the pitch at the moment, and it hasn’t been for a while,” the left-back said after the Old Trafford loss.

Everton believe Baines’ words were taken out of context with the long-serving full-back suggesting the chemistry on the pitch has temporarily gone missing for the FA Cup semi-finalists – rather hinting at any disharmony in the squad.

But Martinez has spoken to Baines and accepted an apology from the England international, 31.
