Gueye's Grand Ambition
Frenchman keen to impress in run-in
Magaye Gueye vowed to do his best to impress in the final six games of the season.
The Frenchman admitted he had some pre-match nerves ahead of his full Premier League debut against Wolves on Saturday.
But the 20-year-old nearly marked the occasion with a goal and admitted he was relishing being offered a chance to make an impact in the first team as a result of Everton’s injury problems.
"David Moyes is a very good manager, he talks to me sometimes and says that he trusts me and he is confident in me," he said.
"He says I am one for the future, he wants me to learn and watch the other players.
"We are without some very important players because of injury, we don't have Mikel Arteta, Tim Cahill, Louis Saha and Marouane Felliani," added the French Under-21 international.
"I would rather these players were not injured because if Mikel wasn't injured I could learn a lot, but it's good to have the chance to play."
As Gueye sprinted through at Molineux at the weekend it looked like he would cap his full debut with a dream goal. It wasn’t to be – but he remains focussed on making his mark if any further opportunities are forthcoming.
"I thought I was offside and everything happened so quickly," Gueye told evertonfc.com.
"The goalkeeper was very quick off his line and the defender got there quickly too. I just pushed the ball forward a bit too much and the keeper just saved it with his feet.
"It was my first game and I was very stressed and nervous but maybe next time I can do better,” he continued. “I'd like to play in every game, and maybe score three goals and get some assists."
