Carragher: I underestimated Everton midfielder Gueye

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher was impressed by Idrissa Gana Gueye's performance for Everton's win at Sunderland.

Carragher admitted that he had underestimated Gueye's all-round ability.

“I think I have underestimated how good this lad is on the ball," he told Sky Sports.

“His passing tonight was fantastic and I didn't know he had that in his game.

“Considering what I and maybe some others thought of him as a player to win challenges and tackles, he passes and wants the next ball as well.

“He's not thinking like a defensive midfielder that wants to get back and do his job.

“I think Everton have a real player, and considering the prices in football these days, I think £7m is a steal for Everton."
