Yakubu has revealed he is determined to rediscover his goalscoring touch for Everton once again.
The striker returns to the scene where he ruptured his Achilles tendon two years ago on Saturday as the Toffees take on Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
The Nigeria international faced a year on the sidelines and he admits he was not at his best for club and country last season.
Everton's £11million signing has made four consecutive starts for David Moyes' men since an injury to Louis Saha opened the door for him.
And, following an impressive display against Liverpool in the Merseyside derby last weekend, Yakubu admits a first goal of the season at Spurs would be a sweet moment.
He told the club's official website: "White Hart Lane is where I got my injury and when I played there last season I did think about it.
"I scored a goal but we lost and I wasn't at my best. The injury is out of my mind now and I am not thinking about it.
"I feel so much better this season and I really want to go there and perform well and forget the injury once and for all.
"It would be special to score a goal there on top of a good performance as two years ago I had my bad injury.
"A goal this time would put that memory away once and for all. I want to score goals and it would be nice to get going at Tottenham."
Yakubu insists he is feeling fitter and stronger and is ready to fire Everton up the table.
"Starting and playing regularly helps me so much," he added.
"My fitness is much better than last season and my injury is now behind me. For me I just want to start scoring and helping the team.
"My injury was a really bad one and it took me a year to get better and I have been recovering ever since.
"Last season I played some games but I wasn't quite there - now I feel 100 per cent better.
"In the past when I've started scoring I haven't stopped.
"I am a striker and I love scoring goals."
