Injured Everton attacker provides fitness update

By Harvey Byrne

Everton attacker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has shared that his injury isn’t “too bad” and that he should return in “eight weeks or so.”

The 19-year-old starlet suffered an injury during the Toffees’ 3-0 victory over Southampton earlier in the month.

The player left the field after just 12 minutes, replaced by the more experienced Kevin Mirallas.

The injury came at a bad time for the player, having just broken into the senior Everton side.

However, the youngsters at Everton are receiving high praise at the moment with Tom Davies, Mason Holgate and Ademola Lookman all performing in the first team.

Calvert-Lewin will now be keen to make his way back into the senior side and he revealed that he could return in two months time.

“Not too bad,” started Calvert-Lewin when asked how he was during an interview as shown on the official club Twitter page.

“Probably looking at about eight weeks or so. A little injury to the ankle, so hopefully not too long.”

Calvert-Lewin made the switch to Merseyside in the summer from League One side Sheffield United in a £1.5million deal.

He was handed his debut for Ronald Koeman’s side in the 2-1 victory over Arsenal in December.

He went on to make two more appearances for the club before his injury in his fourth encounter against the Saints.

The young starlet will now be looking for a return in March, where his side will face Tottenham, West Brom and Hull.
