Baines edging closer to Everton debut

David Moyes believes he will have £6million new boy Leighton Baines ready for action in a week.

The former Wigan full-back returned to training for the first time yesterday, after sitting out Saturday's Premier League opener against his former club with a hamstring injury.

Baines will not be involved tonight away to Tottenham, but Moyes said: 'We are looking forward to getting him involved.

'He trained for the first time on Monday since he joined us - but he will need a week before we can really consider him.

'There has been no problem with him settling in, and he has one or two friends here already.'

Everton are expected to field an unchanged side at White Hart Lane, where they won impressively last season after 21 years without a victory there.

Moyes has James McFadden back in his squad after a knee injury.

'We seem to be okay in terms of injuries after the weekend win over Wigan,' said the Toffees boss.

'James McFadden has done some training, and I will add him to the squad.

'He has missed a lot of pre-season work - but because of the shortage up front, I will be bringing him into the squad.'

Everton are still trying to sign a striker and a midfielder, with another approach likely for Middlesbrough's Yakubu - while the club are close to tying up a £6million move for Manuel Fernandes to return from Benfica.

Moyes said: 'I think we are getting closer [on the transfer front], but I couldn't say at the moment if anything is done or not done - I am leaving that to the club to sort out.'

Even though a striker is needed following the sale of James Beattie and the injury to James Vaughan, Moyes is more than happy with teenager Victor Anichebe, who scored the second goal against Wigan.

He said: 'Young Victor has now got some experience. It is a big ask for him just now. But he is more than capable of standing up to it, and getting a goal will give him a lot of confidence.'

Moyes is fully aware Spurs will be determined to put Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Sunderland behind them, and is not getting carried away by the fact Everton could find themselves six points ahead of their hosts after tonight.

He said: 'In the Premier League, I don't think there is ever a good time to catch anybody.

'This is their first home game of the season, and that in itself will give them a lift. We know we have got to go there and be hard to beat and put on a good show.

'We had good games last year. We played well at Tottenham, and they played well at Goodison - the games have been tight between good sides.

'Tottenham have invested heavily in the market to improve again, so we know it is going to be a really difficult game.'
