Dominic Calvert Lewin is a major doubt to face Liverpool in the Merseyside derby on Monday night.

The English striker has had a season plagued by injury after injury and has just been hit with some more bad news.

Calvert Lewin featured against Arsenal last weekend and put in one of his most impressive performances in recent memory. Although he was isolated for large parts of the game he acted as a brilliant release valve to alleviate the pressure on his side with excellent centre-forward play.

But just as it looked like he could be the catalyst for change at Goodison, he has been hit with another setback.

The striker is suffering from a hamstring injury and didn’t participate in training this week, Sean Dyche admitted that he will ‘be touch and go, at best’.

‘We’re hoping it settles down as quickly as possible.’ said Dyche.

‘He put a real shift in, his stats were very good in the last game and unfortunately he’s got a niggly hamstring and we’ve got to get on top of it as quick as we can.

‘There are different ways the team can operate. I don’t look at one player to try to win games, it has to be a team collective.

‘It is a great opportunity whoever plays next. What a game to be stepping into if he is not right. Get ready to take it on.’

A win at Anfield for Everton could be the boost that this side needs to lift them out of the relegation zone for good.
