Goodison Park star will return from injury and still hopes of clinching Europa League spot.
Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini expects to play before the end of the season to push his side towards Europa League qualification.
The 23-year-old has not played since undergoing surgery on his ankle ligament after playing Sunderland in March.
Everton are currently in seventh, nine points behind fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, but the North London club do have a game in hand.
Following Birmingham City’s Carling Cup win and either Bolton or Stoke making the FA Cup final, only fifth spot will guarantee Europa League football.
But the Belgium international is confident Everton can still make it and hopes to play a part in achieving it.
I’m counting on returning to training as soon as possible and being available for the end of the season,” Fellaini told the Daily Star.
“My operation went well. The plaster came off on Monday and that’ll allow me to fully begin my rehab.
“If everything goes well, I hope to be able to help Everton at the end of the Premier League season.
“I’m happy with our recent results. We’ve not lost in the league since February 13 and a Europa League place is possible for us.”
