Mikel Arteta aims to make up for lost time after being forced to miss Everton's Carling Cup semi-final first leg through suspension.
The diminutive playmaker, sent off against Arsenal in December, had to endure a three-match ban and sat out the 2-1 defeat at Chelsea.
But tonight Arteta is back and aiming to guide Everton into their first cup final in 13 years.
'I was suspended from the first leg and it was hard sitting and watching that game,' he said. 'I did not want to miss it and I was unhappy with the way I got the red card.
'Now I want to be in the side to help the team get to the final. That is the objective. We want to win finals, win trophies and make this club bigger. Everyone wants to do that.
'It will be a crazy atmosphere, everyone will go mad and get right behind the team. But we have to give the fans what they want, keep them behind us.'
Everton will give late fitness tests to Andrew Johnson, Leon Osman, Manuel Fernandes and Tony Hibbert, and are missing Joseph Yobo, Steven Pienaar and Ayegbeni Yakubu on African Nations Cup duty.
But Arteta believes Everton have the strength to cope.
He said: 'We are all very excited, we cannot wait for the game and we are all being very positive about it. This is a great chance for the club.
'It will be a great atmosphere and we are ready for it, no doubt about that.
'There is no fear. We need to cut out the mistakes we have made recently, certainly when we are close to the end of a game we must make sure we do not give away what has been achieved in the match.
'Small mistakes, small details, that is what costs a team. But if we want to play at this level we have to cut out those errors.
'We must get used to playing semi-finals and finals. Chelsea have that experience, but we do not.'
Boss David Moyes refuses to contemplate a Wembley visit before Chelsea have been overcome.
He said: 'I could not be thinking about a final while we are still to play Chelsea, we are 2-1 down and face a hugely difficult game. I do not want to start talking cheap.
'It will still need a monumental performance from us now. But we have had some really big performances this season, although I accept that we have not beaten the teams who are now above us in the league table, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea. And of course Liverpool too.
'But we drew at Chelsea in the league, so we are not far away against teams at that level. Something has to give in our favour, and I must make sure it is this time.
'Chelsea are a fine counter-attacking side, they will enjoy getting us to come onto them and wait for the mistakes to exploit.
'We have to be patient and wait for the one goal we need to get ourselves back into the tie.'
