The midfielder suffered the muscle tear injury during the international break and missed their match with Manchester City last weekend and was expected to miss the Merseyside derby as well. However, news has suggested that the Senegal international will be fit and ready to go as they host the Red side of Liverpool on Saturday.
The locals will be delighted with the news that Gueye is available for the Toffees, as he has proven to be one of the main differences for the side in recent campaigns, although he has struggled to replicate those performances this season, despite playing 27 times in the Premier League so far.
The locals will be pleased with the news that the midfielder will be available as the Toffees look to record their first win against Liverpool in the Premier League in 15 attempts, and the Senegal international being back in the setup could help to contain the dominating attack the Reds have at their disposal.
