Roberto Martinez has not ruled out the possibility of Samuel Eto’o making his Everton debut against former club Chelsea on Saturday.
 
The Blues secured the signature of the 33-year-old triple Champions League winner on Tuesday evening.
 
Martinez will now closely study Eto’o’s first few training sessions before deciding whether he is ready to play a part against Jose Mourinho’s side.
 
But the Cameroonian’s enthusiasm to be involved can’t be doubted.
 
He said: “It is difficult. I tried to have that conversation and realistically I would have liked him to have 10 or 11 sessions before we put him in a competitive environment.
 
“But I quite quickly learned that I was wasting my time; he wants to be helpful to the team straight away and he wants to be involved.
 
“He is working today and everything will go down to what condition he has over the next two or three days to make that decision.
 
“He arrives at a good time with the international break and that will speed up his adaptation period.”
 
Elsewhere, Christian Atsu is not eligible to face his parent club. Bryan Oviedo, Arouna Kone and Ross Barkley are sidelined, though Romelu Lukaku could feature despite limping out of the 2-2 draw with Arsenal.
 
But Steven Pienaar is out after he too was forced off against the Gunners last weekend.
