Analyst David Hughes has claimed that something doesn’t feel right regarding the situation with Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Everton.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin has had a frustrating season for Everton in the Premier League due to injury issues that have left him out of the side and amongst his return he has struggled to get back into the side. He has featured just 13 times in the league this campaign and has been an unused substitute in his last two times in the squad.
Despite the severe injuries that Calvert-Lewin has suffered from this season, whilst speaking on The All Together Now Podcast, Hughes noticed that his recent injuries have raised some suspicion.
(21;31) “He’s (Calvert-Lewin) has had some terrible injury issues, but some of the more recent ones I have felt a bit not very clear, and just kind of suddenly he’s missing the odd game, and I’m not saying there is anything going on but it raises some suspicion,” Hughes said.
Do you think Everton will get relegated?
TIF Thoughts on David Hughes’s comments…
Calvert-Lewin has been a major loss to Everton this season, last campaign in the Premier League, he was vital for the Toffees, in the league he had the third-highest average player rating (7.1), he was the club’s, top scorer, with 16 goals and he had the most shots on target on average per game (1.4), as per Sofascore.
Everton have picked up form in recent weeks, and they have lost just once out of their previous five games in the league, which has been without Calvert-Lewin in the side, so Lampard may opt to leave him out in the remaining games because it seems to be working without him in the side.
