Everton boss Martinez: Traore could make Spurs clash

Everton boss Roberto Martinez says new signing Lacina Traore could make his debut against Tottenham.

Traore has stepped up his training after arriving on loan from Monaco and is an outside chance to make the matchday squad this weekend.

"He has got a chance [of travelling]," confirmed Martinez.

"Lacina is progressing really well. I just need to assess if it's wise or not to give him playing time. he is fully fit from a medical point of view, it's just a matter of giving him the right playing time over the next two or three weeks because the last thing we want is him to push himself and suffer as a result of trying to get the tempo and physicality of the premier league."
