Sandro Ramirez says that he is back to full fitness and will be raring to go when Tottenham come to Goodison Park this weekend.

The Spaniard, a £5.2m acquisition from Malaga over the summer, has had his fledgeling Premier League career disrupted by a heel injury but he remains unfazed and he says he has been working at Finch Farm to get back to 100%.

“I have worked hard to prepare for the Spurs game which for us, in front of our fans, will be massive,” he says. “I feel very positive about the team going into this match.

“I had two weeks of problems with my heel but I was looking forward to playing again when we went to Chelsea. Now I feel one hundred per cent and I want to be ready for the Spurs game.”

With Everton failing to sign an experienced striker to replace Romelu Lukaku, the responsibility for scoring the team's goals will continue to fall on the shoulders of Sandro, Wayne Rooney and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

The 21-year-old scored a fine goal in the pre-season friendly against Sevilla but has yet to find the net in a competitive game. Nevertheless, he is confident that he can make the transition from Serie A.

“I think playing in England suits me,” he continues. “It gives me the chance to make runs in behind and attack the spaces.

“One of the reasons I came to the Premier League was I knew I was coming to one of England's biggest clubs.

“So far it has been very good. Of course, there are so many things we need to improve and we are working every day on the training ground to get better.”
