Saido Berahino has declared himself ready to make his first start for Stoke City when they travel to Tottenham on Sunday.
Berahino, who joined the Potters from West Brom in January, has made just two substitute appearances so far.
The 23-year-old, who has not scored a league goal for nearly a year, said he had been putting in extra work in training to be ready for the trip to White Hart Lane.
“I have been doing a lot of work with the group but also a lot, every day, away from them too, to make sure I am getting my levels right back up to where we want them to be,” Berahino told the club’s website.
“The extra work has finished now because I am in good condition, and now it is just about maintaining what I have and improving on that with minutes in the Premier League.
“I have already been used in a couple of games, which has been fantastic for me, but the next step is to try and start a game and then come through that too, hopefully having made a good impact.”
