Yannick Bolasie got his first goal of the season in Everton's 3-1 loss to Manchester City.
Everton was no match for Manchester City as Idrissa Gueye missed the game due to injury. This led to a midfield pivot of Wayne Rooney and Morgan Schneiderlin that couldn't cut it in the first half as City scored three goals. The introduction of Tom Davies in the second half helped things but it was the connection of Dominic Calvert-Lewin to Yanninck Bolasie that provided the silver lining. Calvert-Lewin provided the pass but it was an excellent finish from Bolasie that beat Ederson Morales. Everton will need to move on from this result quickly as derby day with Liverpool is right around the corner. Mar 31 - 2:42 PM

Everton and West Brom battled to a defensive standstill in a scoreless draw at The Hawthorns on Tuesday.

There were plenty of thrilling matches on Boxing Day in the Premier League, but Everton v. West Brom clearly wasn't one of them; in fact, it's a strong contender for the dullest game of the year. Everton's chances were far and few between with Wayne Rooney missing his second straight match due to an unspecified illness. In his absence, Yannick Bolasie made his first start in a year after a lengthy absence due to an ACL injury. But the clean sheet is the club's third in the last four matches, and second scoreless draw in three days, to extend Everton's unbeaten streak extend to seven matches.

Everton could get a major boost to its attacking ranks with Yannick Bolasie set to return this week.

Bolasie has missed the last year recovering from a serious knee injury suffered last December, but has returned to training over the last couple weeks with an eye on returning during the festive period. Well manager Sam Allardyce revealed that return could come on Saturday against Everton: "With Yannick, physically he’s totally ready. I’d say from a technical point of view he’ll still be a little rusty but we have to throw him in at some level and some stage and the sooner we can do that the better. We’re going to consider him to be on the subs’ bench tomorrow and, if that is the case, we would like to try to get him on at some stage during the game, hopefully because we’ve got, or are getting, a result."

Everton's recent run of form has been met by more good news with Yannick Bolasie set to return from a long layoff.

The Congo international has missed exactly one year since suffering knee ligament damage last December. Bolasie recently played for the U23s and is now in contention to face Swansea City on Monday night, manager Sam Allardyce confirmed: "We’ve got Yannick Bolasie training and he will probably play some part for the Under-23s tonight. We’ll see what happens with that and may – depending on the whole team here – have a discussion on whether that makes him available for selection on Monday night against Swansea."

Yannick Bolasie took another step towards a return to competitive action when he joined the first-team in training on Wednesday.

The winger has been sidelined since rupturing knee ligaments in 2016, but speaking ahead of the Europa League match against Atlanta, David Unsworth said he expects Bolasie to return: "Probably [in] late December [or] going into the new year. Yannick’s had four sessions with the Under-23s and had a gym session this week as well. He’s absolutely chomping at the bit, which is great." The plan will be to reintegrate him back into full training over the next month. The caretaker boss also revealed another long-term absentee – Seamus Coleman – could be back in January while Ross Barkley and James McCarthy [both hamstring] are said to be a couple of weeks away. Morgan Schneiderlin [toe] should return on Sunday and Mason Holgate has a short-term groin issue.

Yannick Bolasie is edging closer to his return from an ACL injury after starting up light training with Everton.

While the winger says he still has a ways to go before rejoining the full squad, the club is hopeful Bolasie can return before the end of the calendar year, which would mark a year since his injury last December. Said Bolasie: "I'm just happy to be back out there and moving about the way I can. I'm getting stronger by the day and I'm looking forward to coming back. There's still a while to go but I'm happy with where I'm at. At this stage, I couldn't ask to be in a better place and everything just seems like it's clicking into place."

Yannick Bolasie is hoping to play again before the end of 2017 as he continues his recovery from a serious knee injury.

The former Crystal Palace winger, who arrived at Goodison Park 10 months ago, has been sidelined since damaging knee ligaments in December 2016. Bolasie has since undergone two separate operations to repair his meniscus and anterior cruciate ligament, and while an initial timeline had him pencilled in for a return in early 2018, he is hoping to comeback ahead of schedule. "Getting back in December would be the best Christmas present. A player like me always wants to be on the pitch." Bolasie also feels that his time out will help to improve his game: "I am going to be subconsciously more cautious with any sharp movements. My old managers - Alan Pardew and Tony Pulis - always felt I would gain more composure with age. Now I have had this injury, I think it will come, but I don't think I will lose my pace or my sprinting - and I feel strong already."

Everton's Yannick Bolasie's injury nightmare has only just begun with the winger expected to miss up to a year.

The playmaker suffered an ACL injury in the first week of December that has already required one major surgery and will now need another in the coming months to repair the ruptured ligaments. Bolasie arrived this summer in a £30 million move from Crystal Palace, recording one goal and four assists in his debut season on Merseyside. Said manager Ronald Koeman at the club's annual general meeting: "He's, at the moment, optimistic. It is a long-term injury, 10, 11, 12 months. That is a big disappointment but he will come back, he has a strong mentality."

Everton winger Yannick Bolasie's debut season on Merseyside seems to have come to a close following an ACL injury.

Scans confirmed the £30million summer signing from Crystal Palace will need surgery to repair ligaments in his right knee after leaving the club's 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday in the 68th minute. Not only does the operation rule him out for the rest of the season, but it also keeps him from representing DR Congo at the African Cup of Nations in January. Bolasie has played in every Premier League match since making the move to Goodison Park, recording a goal and four assists. Now, manager Ronald Koeman will have to choose between Gerard Deulofeu, Enner Valencia and Tom Cleverley to replace the playmaker on the wing.

Yannick Bolasie could miss the Africa Cup of Nations next month after he suffered what appeared to be a serious looking knee injury against Manchester United.

The former Crystal Palace winger overstretched for a ball midway through the second half, and following lengthy treatment on the touchline, Bolasie lasted another four minutes before dropping to the Goodison turf once again. Following an impressive start to his Everton career, Bolasie has struggled in recent games, a dip in form which has coincided with the Toffees’ downturn. Today’s 1-1 draw ensures Ronald Koeman’s men have just one win from their last 9 Premier League encounters, although they did take a point from the Etihad. The absence of Bolasie, could open the door for West Ham loanee Enner Valencia who has been restricted to nothing more than a bit part role since his arrival in July.

Everton's autumn slide only continued following a 2-1 loss to Burnley that extends the club's Premier League winless streak to four games.

Heading into Gameweek 6, the Toffees sat in second place behind Manchester City, until a 1-0 loss to Bournemouth preceded two draws and a loss at the Turf Moor on Saturday to drop the club into sixth place. Everton did well to respond to a first-half deficit after Sam Vokes sent the Clarets ahead in the 39th minute after Maarten Stekelenburg couldn't control a save that fell right to Vokes. But Yannick Bolasie answered in the second half with his first Premier League goal for the Toffees after taking the ball off Romelu Lukaku's feet and firing it past Tom Heaton before Scott Arfield's late winner broke Everton's heart.

"Sky Sports" report Everton has seen its club-record bid for Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie accepted this week.

Reports claim the bid will surpass the previous club record of £28 million paid to Chelsea for Romelu Lukaku two years ago with add-ons taking the fee near £30 million for Bolasie. With Bolasie, Andros Townsend, Wilfried Zaha, Bakary Sako and Connor Wickham, Palace has toyed with the idea of selling Bolasie in order to fund a £30 million-plus move for Liverpool forward Christian Benteke this summer after seeing a £25 million bid shot down last month. But after selling John Stones for upwards of £40 million, Everton manager Ronald Koeman now has money to spend prior to the season opener against Spurs this weekend.

Reports in England confirm Everton is trying to conduct a bit of last-minute shopping before its opener against Tottenham this weekend.

Just this week the Toffees have seen a £10million bid for Swansea City defender Ashley Williams rejected, an £18million bid for Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie turned down and have just submitted an £18million bid for Sunderland defender Lamine Kone as they look to replace defender John Stones, who is being linked with a last-minute move to Manchester City. Ronald Koeman has only signed Maarten Stekelenburg and Idrissa Gueye this summer and is expected to return with improved bids for Bolasie and Williams this summer.

Alan Pardew will make a late decision on Yannick Bolasie who is struggling due to sickness: "We’re waiting on him." Meanwhile, the Eagles boss also confirms Mile Jedinak "has a slight knock."

If one, or both players miss out against Stoke then Palace do have options, although Chung-Yong Lee is unlikely to be considered after he was fined this week following his comments about Pardew in the South Korean Press. Bakary Sako and Joe Ledley are poised to come in. Wilfried Zaha "still has a bit of a problem" which means he’ll miss the remaining league games "but he should be fine by the (FA Cup) final" in a little over two weeks. "He is a naturally fit guy. He did the injury before the semi-final. We monitored him afterwards and saw there was a slight tear." Sullay Kaikai was brilliant during his loan spell at Shrewsbury and young midfielder will be play a part during the run-in: "I'm not sure I'll involve him this weekend, but I will involve him at Southampton. He's earned that."

Crystal Palace will be relieved have all of its usual starters available to face Watford in the FA Cup semifinals on Sunday.

Manager Alan Pardew confirmed that winger Yannick Bolasie and defenders Scott Dann and Joel Ward will all be in contention to start against Watford after missing Wednesday's loss to Manchester United due to various knocks sustained last weekend against Arsenal. The squad was so depleted against the Red Devils that Pardew made seven changes to the starting lineup from the Arsenal draw. But the move were suited to getting the club back to full strength before what is undoubtedly the biggest game of the season for the club at Wembley.
