Everton could be hit with Idrissa Gueye injury blow after Senegal boss’ assessment

Gueye completed 90 minutes in the win over Stoke last weekend but has now been sent back to Merseyside

Idrissa Gueye is set to miss huge clashes with Manchester City and Liverpool through injury – according to his international manager.

The midfielder could miss three weeks of action after reporting to the Senegal squad with a ‘muscle tear’.

Gueye completed 90 minutes in the win over Stoke last weekend but has now been sent back to Merseyside after his national boss Aliou Cisse had his fitness assessed.

“My squad is almost complete, but Gana had a muscle tear when he came over,” he reportedly said. “I had wanted him to be in my team, but I think he will be out for three weeks.

“I wanted him to come over with the rest of his national teammates, so we could assess his injury. He was able to do so.”

If Cisse’s claims are correct, then the 28-year-old will miss Senegal’s World Cup warm-up friendlies against Uzbekistan and Bosnia.

More importantly for Everton, a three-week absence would also ensure his absence for the upcoming home fixtures with City and Liverpool.

Gueye recently missed the home win over Brighton through illness, having previously started five successive games under Sam Allardyce.
