Gueye scored his first league goal for Everton in a 2–0 victory over Sunderland at Goodison Park on 25 February 2017. He became the first player in Europe's top five leagues to win 100 tackles in the 2016–17 season. Gueye scored his first goal for Everton in the European Competition on 17 August 2017 in the UEFA Europa League Play-off round first leg against Hajduk Split when he slotted in an inch-perfect pass from Wayne Rooney.

Style of play

Football journalist Adam Bate believed that Gueye was the Premier League player closest to N'Golo Kanté. He has also helped Ronald Koeman change the team's style of play after taking over from the previous manager. Gueye was described as Everton's midfield dynamo and catalyst for their pressing game. His former colleague Romelu Lukaku asserted that Gueye improved the team in midfield by making so many challenges. He allowed Everton to control the game a lot more due to his work rate, passing and his dedication. Gueye was the top tackler in the Premier League 2016–17 season.
