Phil Jagielka insists he is ready to give everything in order for Everton to push for a top-four finish.
The centre-back returned to the Toffees line-up to help keep a clean sheet in the 1-0 win over Stoke City on the weekend and has vowed to not let his ankle injury get in the way of a successful season run-in at Goodison Park.
"It's not quite healed up yet but it will get there and I can play without any problems," Jagielka told the Liverpool Echo.
"I've got to have an injection to take a bit of the pain away because there's still a bit of scar tissue but it's part and parcel of being a footballer.
"I've been desperate to get back training and playing with the lads. It's a boring time being on your own, especially being injured.
"I've been there before and so it's been nice to get back amongst it this week, even more so to play."
