Everton will be without veteran duo Phil Jagielka and Leighton Baines for tomorrow’s game against Manchester City, but will be welcoming back a key midfielder.

At his pre-match press conference on Tuesday, Everton boss Marco Silva confirmed that Jagielka and Baines will be missing through injury, as will Yerry Mina, who is on loan from Barcelona.

However, after his transfer window saga which saw Paris Saint-Germain make several approaches and City themselves be linked with the player, midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye is back from injury.

City themselves will be without club captain Vincent Kompany for the trip to Goodison Park, but every other outfield player bar Eliaquim Mangala was ruled fit by Pep Guardiola at his own presser today.
