Idrissa Gueye, a midfielder for Everton, could miss a few weeks if the worst happens to his tendon, according to Dr. Rajpal Brar.
Due to an injury, the Toffees player was forced to withdraw from the Bournemouth match and was later replaced by Amadou Onana.
In what was perhaps their greatest performance of the season against the relegation prospects, the hosts won 3-0 with ease.
Discussing his situation exclusively with Goodison News, Brar, a doctor in physical therapy and a sports scientist, said:

“He had soreness in the heel leading up to the match and that soreness continued into the warm-ups.
That could mean a number of things, ranging from plantar fasciitis to Achilles soreness.
“The worst case here would be something like Achilles tendinopathy which can have a high variance for return, depending on the specifics, but could be weeks.“
This season, the 34-year-old has appeared in seven league games as a regular for Sean Dyche.
He has established himself as a rock in the middle and, despite a few shaky performances, has managed to keep his place in the starting lineup.
If he is fit, it is unclear if he will be reinserted into the lineup against Liverpool because Dyche might not want to change what is working.
