Jan Mucha is waiting to see whether he will start in goal for Everton after joining from Legia Warsaw.
The Slovakian keeper signed a pre-contract with the Toffees in January and is now looking forward to his first season in the Premier League.
Tim Howard has been firmly established as No.1 at Goodison Park for several years but the arrival of Mucha has given him a fresh competitor.
Both men are hoping to be named in the team for Saturday's opener against Blackburn and Mucha believes there is no clear favourite for the role.
"Everything begins tomorrow and I can't wait for that," Mucha told SITA.
"Yesterday I returned from the international meet-up, as did Tim Howard.
"We are fighting for the regular spot and will see how the situation develops.
"So far we don't know who will be in the goal, the nomination has not been announced yet."
Mucha is confident that he would perform well if given the nod, saying that one of his main strengths is staying calm.
"I have no reason to be nervous. I feel fine, I have been doing my best in training and hope I will be given a chance to play," he explained.
"The pressure has not been bigger here than at Legia Warsaw."
Mucha believes Everton are capable of challenging for a place in the top four after holding on to all their key players in the summer.
"We have big ambitions. The team is excellent and well-attuned," he said.
"There have not even been many transfers made and the team has a good quality.
"Some players have signed new contracts and the club is stabilised.
"Definitely, we want to be in the battle for either the Champions League or the Europa League."
