Everton midfielder will return to the senior squad for this weekend’s fixture at , just three months after .

The Portuguese star has made a remarkable recovery since the injury sustained against Tottenham Hotspur on November 3. It seemed there was no prospect of him featuring again this season in the immediate aftermath of that setback.

But the 26-year-old’s rehabilitation has been rapid. He played an hour in a behind-closed-doors friendly over the weekend, and now manager Carlo Ancelotti says Gomes will rejoin the squad for the trip to The Emirates. Ancelotti even says it is likely that Gomes will start on his comeback, rather than be eased back in as a substitute.

“He did well, he played comfortably and without any problems and he is available, in my opinion, to play,” Ancelotti said.

“Of course, I have to speak to him about how he feels after playing his first game following a long time out.

“My personal opinion is he is ready to play. When a player has been out for a long period, I think it is better to start the game.

“He can prepare properly, [rather] than to put him on from the bench. But I have to speak to him and together we can find a solution.”

Gomes has been training with the first team since January and his first full practice match on Sunday came 105 days after the serious injury.

He is now ready to make a significant impact on Everton’s attempt to secure European football next season, as the Merseysiders seek to extend their two-point lead over Mikel Arteta’s side.

“He can bring his experience, his quality with the ball, his knowledge about tactics,” Ancelotti said in an interview on Everton’s club channel.

“Andre is a top player and we need him. And I am sure he can start well.

“It is the right moment for him to come back. We are trying to have a really important moment, we have some really important games.

“We are fighting for Europe, this is our goal, to have a player like Andre will make us feel more comfortable.”

Everton must check on the fitness of Theo Walcott ahead of his potential return to his former club. Walcott is being treated for a knee injury suffered in the last game against Crystal Palace.
