A lot of Everton fans have flocked to a post from Andre Gomes as he prepares for his first-team return.
The Portuguese midfielder has been missing since he suffered a horrendous injury against Tottenham Hotspur at the beginning of November.
Would you put Andre Gomes in the squad for the Arsenal match?
Yes, he could make a difference
No, too early to use him
However, he has made an almost miraculous recovery and is now available for selection again as the Toffees prepare to visit Arsenal.
The 26-year-old was tackled from behind by Heung-min Son (2:12) and as he fell, he collided with Serge Aurier (2:13), causing his ankle to fracture and dislocate.
These Toffees supporters are therefore thrilled to have Gomes back and ready for selection.

Looking strong and bossing it already Andre. I truly believe we would have been even higher than we are now in the table if the injury didn’t happen. So can’t wait to see you starting again and taking us into Europe Mr ??????

What do we think?
Gomes, who is valued at £25.2m by Transfermarkt, spent last season on loan at Goodison Park, where he made 29 appearances, scored one goal and provided two assists.
The move was then made permanent last summer, and Gomes had made a decent start to the season, receiving an average rating of 6.4 from WhoScored.
Hopefully, he is ready to make a positive contribution for the rest of the season. His latest tweet seems to have given fans hope he could yet return to the first-team fold before too long.
