Idrissa Gueye joined Everton from Aston Villa in 2016, and when considering that the Toffees paid just £7m for the central midfielder, he has turned out to be a very good signing for the Merseyside giants.
Gueye made 36 appearances in all competitions for Everton last term, and has appeared in all but one of the team’s Premier League matches this season.
There is no question that Everton have shown signs of improvement in recent weeks, winning four of their last six in the league. Indeed, only Manchester United have beaten them since September 23, and Marco Silva’s side drew 0-0 with Chelsea at the weekend.
Gueye was particularly impressive against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, and he will be key to Everton’s chances of success this season.

The Everton fans were recently asked to rate how Gueye has performed this term, and it would be fair to say that the 29-year-old has pleased the supporters.

Big common theme amongst the players when they talk about the teams and their form, SILVA! Seems he’s making quite the impression on the lads. ??

He is going great – but to be fair he has been great for awhile but the pairing with Gomes has really suited him well.
