Idrissa Gueye, an Everton midfielder, has sustained a groin injury.

Everton‘s winless streak in the Premier League continued as they secured a 1-1 draw against Brighton at the Amex Stadium on February 24th.

The first half saw Everton maintain a tight defensive shape, but the game opened

up in the second half when Jarrad Branthwaite scored an impressive goal from 15 yards out.

Brighton’s fortunes worsened when Billy Gilmour received a red card for a dangerous tackle on Amadou Onana.

Despite appearing to be on course for a crucial victory, Everton suffered a setback when Lewis Dunk scored a stoppage-time equalizer, extending their winless run to nine games and leaving them dangerously close to the relegation zone.

During the match, Everton faced another setback as midfielder Idrissa Gueye was

forced off at the start of the second half due to a groin injury. Manager Sean Dyche revealed that although

Gueye initially felt he could continue after half-time, his groin “seized up,” necessitating his substitution with Amadou Onana.

While Everton have shown signs of progress under Dyche this season, their struggles persist, exacerbated by a ten-point deduction pending appeal.

However, their inability to secure wins, even against ten-man opponents like Brighton, remains a significant concern.

Dyche may be disappointed with the performances of certain players, including

Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who has yet to make a significant impact.

The injury to Gueye, who has been a regular starter this season, adds to Everton’s concerns, particularly given his previous absence due to a calf injury earlier in the campaign.
