Gerrard Deulofeu could return in action for Everton next Sunday against Tottenham Hotspur, with Roberto Martinez expecting big things from his Spanish starlet after a spell on the sidelines through injury.

"I can guarantee the fans they will see a very different Gerard Deulofeu and someone who is ready to be very important", Martinez told Sky Sports News.

"He travelled over to watch the team in action in a couple of games, and he just really wants to help now."

A hamstring injury put Everton's youngster on the side for two months, but Deulofeu is determined to make a big come back against Spurs to put the Toffees in a comfortable spot to qualify for the Champions League.

Martinez added: "When you're a young man it's even harder being out injured and I can't wait to see him helping the team again."

Deulofeu has been very impressive on loan at Everton so far this season. He scored his first Premier league goal against Stoke City last November, which put the Toffees 1-0 up before half-time.

But it was when Everton were 1-0 down against the Premier league leaders Arsenal that Deulofeu ran on the pitch with the determination to show the skills he acquired at Barcelona, earning the Merseysiders a precious points with a stunning late equaliser.

The 19-year-old who graduated from Barcelona's academy has already featured six times for the Spanish giants and played for the U17 to the U21 Spanish national team.

The Spaniard international was also rewarded of the UEFA European Under-19 Championship Golden Player in 2012, but needs a little bit more experience to be considered as a first-team regular and play alongside one of the best players in the world Lionel Messi.

In the meantime, Tottenham Hotspur should seriously consider Everton's threat with the return of Seamus Coleman and Gerrad Deulofeu, strengthening the Champions League contenders with pace down both flanks.

Everton could move up to fourth place above local rivals Liverpool if Brendan Rodgers' men fail to pick at least one point against the leaders Arsenal, in the Premier League's opening clash of the weekend on Saturday lunchtime.
