Everton issue Dominic Calvert-Lewin update

Everton head coach Sean Dyche has, on Sunday evening, provided an update on the wellbeing of star striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

For those who may have missed it, Calvert-Lewin sent fresh alarm bells ringing across the Everton fanbase earlier today.

This came amid the England international’s return to action, a Premier League trip to Unai Emery’s Aston Villa.

Calvert-Lewin featured from the off at Villa Park, but was withdrawn in concerning fashion late in the first-half.

After challenging Villa shot-stopper Emi Martinez in the air, the pair clashed heads, leaving DCL downed and in evident pain.

A nasty lump subsequently formed under the right eye of the frontman, leaving boss Sean Dyche with little choice but to hook Calvert-Lewin for summer signing Arnaut Danjuma.

Owing to his groggy nature on his way off the pitch, the immediate fear on the side of Everton was that the club’s once prolific striker had suffered a concussion.

Speaking to the media post-match, as much, in turn, was put to the aforementioned Sean Dyche.

In a boost for the Toffees, though, the club’s boss went on to reveal that, in fact, Calvert-Lewin was not concussed.

Instead, he suffered an injury to his right cheek, resulting in partial impairment of his vision.
