Everton striker Calvert Lewin Suffers Double Injury Blow

Everton forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin has dislocated his shoulder in a new major injury blow, according to theusnews.press

Everton striker Dominic Calvert Lewin has sustained a dislocated shoulder as well as a hamstring injury in the defeat to Leicester last weekend.

That put paid to any hopes Calvert-Lewin had of making England’s World Cup squad despite recent performances putting him back in contention.

Calvert-Lewin will see a specialist in the next 24 hours to assess the injured shoulder, says the Daily Mail.

The forward first suffered the shoulder injury when making his first start of the season against Newcastle United on October 19.

Calvert-Lewin has continued to play on even when suffering a recurrence of the injury at Fulham two weeks ago.

Calvert-Lewin has had a torrid time with injuries as of late and had only just made his comeback to Frank Lampard’s first XI in recent weeks to little success.

The striker has also not been included in England’s World Cup squad either in a day of disappointing news which may ultimately be good news for Everton

Calvert-Lewin will now see a specialist in the next 24 hours to assess a dislocated shoulder that has hampered his recent performances for Everton,” said Cross as quoted by theusnews.press

“It has affected his performances in the past few weeks as Calvert-Lewin has been plagued by injury problems in the past year.”

It’s time for the Everton hierarchy to step up and back Lampard in the coming January transfer window. There is a glaring hole in the Blues team and it’s an out-and-out centre forward who can bang in goals.

Calvert-Lewin’s constant injuries mean he can’t be relied on anymore and his latest setback is unfortunately the final straw.

Neal Maupay isn’t capable of playing a pivotal poaching role in this side either, leaving the club with no other option than to explore the market.

There are plenty of top talents out there, whether Everton would be willing to spend big on a forward is another matter altogether.

Competition for strikers will be rife this January and the sooner the Toffees can get someone over the line the better.

Calvert-Lewin’s injury in some ways couldn’t have come at a better time, it will hopefully force the Everton board into finally backing Lampard.

Calvert-Lewin is set to miss Saturday’s Premier League game at Bournemouth and the setback is another blow for a player who has seen his England World Cup disappear.

Calvert-Lewin has won 11 caps – scoring four goals – under Gareth Southgate and was seen as having a chance to make the plane to Qatar. It has been stiff competition to effectively be Harry Kane’s understudy in the squad with Ivan Toney, Tammy Abraham and Callum Wilson all pushing for a place.

But injuries have meant that Calvert-Lewin has fallen down the pecking order and his latest blow is also a potential setback for Everton’s campaign as he is a key player for Lampard.
