Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed Idrissa Gueye will not play a part when they take on Marseille in Sunday’s Ligue 1 game, as the midfielder is expected to return to training next week.

The 30-year-old former Everton man sustained a hamstring injury while on international duty with Senegal against Brazil.

The midfielder consequently missed PSG’s league game against Nice as well as their Champions League’s 5-0 thumping of Belgian side Club Brugge on Tuesday.

Gueye is, however, expected to return to training ahead of the Parisians’ league fixture against Dijon and their return leg against Brugge on November 1 and 6 respectively.

“His injury is progressing favourably, and he is scheduled to return to training with the squad next week,” read a statement on the club website.

Gueye has hit the ground running since his summer switch from Premier League side Everton, having helped the French champions keep clean sheets in all the eight games he has featured.
