Have Everton's best two midfielders been injured in Jean-Phillipe Gbamin and Andre Gomes?
Yes, they're the best
No, not quite the best
Everton’s 24-year-old middleman has been sidelined for the majority of the season after undergoing surgery on a tendon in his right quadriceps muscle (as per Everton), which had fans buzzing that he was edging closer to a return.
YEEEEESSSSS GET IN

What do we think?
However, hopefully, following his surgery and return to training fitness, according to Ancelotti, the worst will be behind him and he can kick start his Everton career.
