Everton defender Ramiro Funes Mori wants a chance to put the brakes on in-form Albion and their top scorer Glenn Murray.

The Argentinian centre-back has declared himself 100% fit to return to the side in place of banned skipper Ashley Williams when the Seagulls visit Goodison Park on Saturday.

Everton will look to subdue 11-goal Murray as speculation grows that he could be in contention for an England call.

Funes Mori helped Everton’s under-23s keep a clean sheet against their Swansea counterparts on Monday and said: “I’m 100% fit to play and I’m ready for Saturday.”

Murray’s odds for a World Cup call have dropped to 20/1, the same as Andy Carroll, amid suggestions he could be in Gareth Southgate’s plans at the age of 34.

England have friendlies against the Netherlands, who have retained Davy Propper in their latest squad, on March 23 and at home to Italy four days later.

It is unclear whether Southgate or assistant Steve Holland will be at Goodison on Saturday.

An FA spokesman told The Argus: “Across the course of the season they will have watched two, sometimes three, Premier League matches on a weekend.

“They will certainly be very aware of all the English players.”

Southgate’s squad will be revealed next Thursday and, if called up, it is unlikely Murray would be made aware until shortly before the official announcement.

Meanwhile, Albion’s tickets for the trip to his old club Crystal Palace next month quickly sold out.

Only 2,000 were made available as part of a reciprocal arrangement between the two clubs.
