Everton have been handed a major boost ahead of their Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur after both Gerard Deulofeu and Seamus Coleman were passed fit for Sunday's clash.

The Toffees visit White Hart Lane just a point ahead of Tim Sherwood's side in fifth place and just two behind Liverpool, who welcome Arsenal to Anfield on Saturday.

Having enjoyed an excellent run of form that that yielded just one defeat in eight – albeit a 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City – Tottenham were handed their own boost ahead of the visit of Roberto Martinez's side with the news that Belgian midfielder Mousa Dembele is likely to be fit.

But the Everton boss has confirmed the return of two players who were key to their impressive start to the season and is particularly looking forward to once again unleashing Barcelona starlet Deulofeu on the Premier League.

"I would say Seamus is probably in the right category (to play)" Martinez told the club's website.

On Deulofeu, the Everton boss told the Liverpool Echo: "He'll definitely come back stronger. He's excited about playing. He's been suffering away from Finch Farm [Everton's training ground] watching the games.

"I can guarantee the fans they will see a very different Gerard Deulofeu and someone who is ready to be very important.

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

"Gerard already has an incredible experience under his belt. He's come back completely refreshed and desperate to play for Everton.

"The good thing is now he comes back to an environment he knows well. In the summer he came into a club with only an idea of what he might find, but it surpassed his expectations.

"The fans welcomed him and they were delighted in the manner he performs and brings something unique."

The 19-year-old, currently on a season-long loan from Barcelona, has been sidelined for two months with a hamstring injury, returning to his parent club in December to accelerate his recovery period in co-ordination with Everton's backroom team.

Republic of Ireland international Coleman also sustained a hamstring injury during January, but having made the bench for the weekend victory over Aston Villa is expected to return to the starting line-up against Tottenham.
