Everton winger Aaron Lennon looks set for his first competitive action since May as manager Roberto Martinez will name him in the squad for the visit of Chelsea.
The 28-year-old's last match was for the Toffees on May 16 at the end of his loan spell but having rejoined permanently on deadline day for a fee of £4.5million he is keen to get started.
Fellow deadline day signing Ramiro Funes Mori is also likely to be in the squad despite him not returning to Finch Farm until Thursday after international duty with Argentina.
"I'm not worried about his physical state and he needs to play games now to sharpen up his play," said Martinez on Lennon.
10 Premier League debutants to watch this weekend
10 Premier League debutants to watch this weekend
1/10 Anthony Martial (Manchester United)
With a fee potentially rising to £58m, everyone is keen to get a look at the 'next Thierry Henry' when Manchester United play Liverpool at Old Trafford. Among them will be Wayne Rooney, who had to ask team-mate Morgan Schneiderlin who Martial was after United's shock mega-bid for the 19-year-old. Having made his France bow during the international break, Martial should be fit and ready to play.
2/10 Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)
Not strictly a Premier League debut for De Bruyne, who played three games for Chelsea during the 2013/14 campaign. The Blues didn't think much of the Belgian and let him leave for Wolfsburg. But just a couple of years later he's back following a £55m move to Manchester City. With question marks over his ability (and City's willingness to spend so much) in England, De Bruyne will be eager to show how much he's improved since his time at Chelsea.
3/10 Papy Djilobodji (Chelsea)
Jose Mourinho wanted John Stones. He got Papy Djilobodji. Whilst far from the mega-signing Chelsea had wanted, the 26-year-old Senegal international could prove a useful addition considering the Blues' shaky start to the defence of their Premier League crown. Having joined from Nantes on deadline day, the 6ft 3in central defender could go straight into the side when Chelsea play Everton at Goodison Park.
4/10 Ramiro Funes Mori (Everton)
A defender at the other end of the Goodison Park pitch potentially making his debut this weekend will be Funes Mori, who arrived at Everton on deadline-day for £9.5m. The Toffees have never paid so much for a defender, so supporters will be expecting much from the arrival from River Plate.
5/10 Virgil van Dijk (Celtic)
Another expensive defender to look out for this weekend is Virgil van Dijk, who joined Southampton from Celtic in a £13m deal. The ball-carrying centre-back joins the Premier League after back-to-back titles north of the border. Ronald Koeman will be hoping his Dutch compatriot can bring some consistency at the back - and maybe a goal or two with his aerial presence - after a mixed start to the season from Saints.
6/10 Heung-Min Son (Tottenham)
Tottenham were desperate to lessen the burden being placed on Harry Kane and whilst failing to sign Saido Berahino, did manage to bring in Heung-Min Son. £21.9m was needed to secure the signature of the striker from Bayer Leverkusen who scored 21 goals in 58 Bundesliga appearances for his former side. After a concerning start to the season that sees Spurs without a win, Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping Heung-Min can bring his international form to club level, with the South Korean scoring a hat-trick against Laos during the international break.
7/10 Michail Antonio (West Ham United)
West Ham were the most active side at the end of the transfer window, bringing in Victor Moses and Alex Song on loan and Nikica Jelavic on a permanent basis. All solid signings, but perhaps the most exciting will be pacy winger Antonio. He signed in a £7m deal after a hugely impressive season for Nottingham Forest last term. In 54 Championship appearances the 25-year-old was involved in 34 goals, netting 19 and providing a further 15 assists. Four of those goals came in this campaign before his move to Upton Park.
8/10 Dieumerci Mbokani (Norwich City)
Despite a healthy goal return since their return to the Premier League, Norwich have added another striker to their ranks with the addition of Mbokani on loan from Dynamo Kiev. The Democratic Republic of Congo international scored 16 goals in 33 league appearances for his former side and also boasted a strong return of 34 goals in 53 league appearances for former club Anderlecht. With fellow promoted side Bournemouth up this weekend, it could be a good opportunity for Mbokani to bag an early Premier League goal.
9/10 Victor Ibarbo (Watford)
Watford have looked decent on their return to the Premier League, but their failure to score in three of their four games means they've got little to show for it. That's why Ibarbo was brought in on loan from Cagliari. The Colombia international is not renowned for getting the goals himself - he's scored just 15 Serie A goals in 127 appearance - he is a shrewd playmaker. Quique Sanchez Flores will be hoping the 25-year-old can set up the goals that will fire his side up the table.
10/10 Joleon Lescott (Aston Villa)
Manchester City once paid £22m for Lescott, a signal of the quality the 26-times capped England international has. He might now be 33-years-old, but the £1m Aston Villa paid West Brom for his services seemed a bargain for a player who made 34 Premier League appearances last season.
"He's refreshed and is in a great position. He knows the football club inside out and is desperate to get back to Goodison.
"From that point of view, I expect Aaron to be involved one way or another at the weekend."
Lennon, who scored two goals in 14 appearances on loan, is confident he can hit the ground running.
"I haven't played pre-season games but I've trained a lot and I feel really good," he told evertonfc.tv.
"I'm in good condition so once I get the game time in I don't see why I won't be straight up to speed."
Martinez is still missing left-back Leighton Baines but has been boosted by the news Brendan Galloway, who has stood in this season, has returned to fitness after a knee problem while he also has the option of playing Funes Mori on the left while Bryan Oviedo's recovery from a knee injury will be assessed over the next two days.
"With Bryan, it's difficult. I don't know if the weekend is too early or not - we'll find out over the next 48 hours," added the manager.
"I think Brendan is progressing well and should be available, in the same way that Ramiro Funes Mori could become available.
"The way I see Ramiro, he is able to play in any of those positions when he is needed, so in that respect it is about assessing how he feels. It's a long journey coming back on Thursday morning and we'll assess that from a physical point of view."
Midfielder James McCarthy is expected to be available after playing two matches for the Republic of Ireland despite a minor knee problem.
"We are going to see how James McCarthy comes back because he had a little bit of a problem in his tendon in his knee before he joined the international setup but he got through the games really well so in that respect we are quite positive," said Martinez.
