Burnley vs Everton - Everton could welcome back Gueye for Burnley trip

Burnley are likely to host Everton on Boxing Day with the same squad which fell
to defeat at Arsenal on Saturday.

Midfielder Robbie Brady recovered from a knock to start at the Emirates Stadium, where Sean Dyche’s side lost 3-1.

Winger Aaron Lennon (knee), goalkeeper Nick Pope (shoulder) and left-back Stephen Ward (knee) will be absent – with midfielder Steven Defour unlikely to be back having missed out on the squad over the weekend with a calf complaint.

Senegal midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye could return to the Everton squad.

Gueye has missed the last two matches with a groin problem, but is closing in on a comeback, while Yerry Mina could replace Kurt Zouma in defence after the on-loan Chelsea centre-back’s poor performance at the weekend.

Gueye’s return could be timely as fellow midfielder Andre Gomes was forced off with a knee injury against Tottenham on Sunday.
