Everton fans have taken to Twitter to yearn for Idrissa Gueye, following the 1-1 draw against West Ham on Saturday.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men managed to scrape a draw against David Moyes’ side thanks to Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s goal, which came after Issa Diop headed the Hammers into the lead.
It was a result that leaves the Toffees in 11th place on 29 points, although following full-time, Everton fans on Twitter have been discussing a man who isn’t even at the club anymore – Gueye.
The Senegal international left Merseyside back in the summer to join Paris Saint-Germain for a fee in the region of £30m, putting an end to a three-year stay at Everton in which he made 108 appearances.
His exit came after he was crowned as the Players’ Player of the Season for his efforts last term, winning the award alongside Lucas Digne.
Gueye, 30, has made 19 appearances so far this season for the French champions, scoring one goal and recording two assists.
Let’s see what the Everton fans are saying about the former Aston Villa man…
I reckon you could stick Schneiderlin, Sigurdsson, Davies and Delph all in a midfield four against a solo Idrissa Gueye and our former Senegalese Prince would still win more battles and get through more work than the lot of them. Do anything to have the main man back.

To kick off the Twitter discussion, this fan-page with the username ‘The Gwladys Street’ said that they think Gueye would win more battles and do more work than Morgan Schneiderlin, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Tom Davies and Fabian Delph combined, before adding that they’d “do anything to have the main man back”.
Biggest loss since Lukaku

I miss him so much
— Jenny (@Jennyefc1982) January 18, 2020
Elsewhere, these two supporters added to the yearning over Gueye.
‘Tebs’ described his exit as the “biggest loss since Lukaku” while Jenny added that she misses the Senegalese midfielder “so much”.
I sometimes cry at the fact we don’t have him anymore

Day doesn’t go by when I don’t think about him

Furthermore, John made the saddening statement that he sometimes cries at the fact that Gueye doesn’t play for Everton anymore.
Also, another fan below John said that a “day doesn’t go by when I don’t think about him” – sounds like these two supporters are especially heartbroken even months after the PSG man departed.
So true, need Gomes back ASAP and bring Rabiot, Vecino, Zieliński or even Can!

Lastly, ‘M3’ said “so true” in agreement of the initial statement from ‘The Gwladys Street’ before saying that the Toffees need Andre Gomes back “ASAP”.
Call yourself an Everton expert? How much did each of these January signings cost?
This fan also demanded that Adrien Rabiot, Mathias Vecino, Piotr Zieliński or Emre Can are brought to Goodison Park.
