Everton have been handed a big boost on the injury front after star striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin didn’t feel any pain on his return to full training with his teammates.The England international had earlier suffered setbacks while trying to recover from a thigh injury sustained at the start of the season. To this effect, he has missed the majority of the season.
England national team striker Calvert-Lewin sustained the thigh injury that has plagued him for months during the Premier League clash with hosts Brighton and Hove Albion in the third game of the new season.
Calvert-Lewin is now expected to be in the Everton squad for the Boxing Day clash with hosts Burnley in the Premier League after suffering no setback in his latest attempt to return to the pitch. He had earlier suffered a setback on two occasions. The former Sheffield United player will most likely start the Burnley game on the bench with manager Rafael Benitez unlikely to risk him from the start.
Everton have missed the influence of Calvert-Lewin in their attack and his return could be the catalyst for them to recover from a poor run of one win in eleven games on the Premier League scene. The fans were satisfied with their last league outing as a massively under-strength team with a lot of young players secured a 1-1 draw at the home of title chasers Chelsea on Thursday night. The two goals were scored in the last quarter of the game with Mason Mount netting the Chelsea game, while young central defender Jarrod Branthwaite scored the goal for Everton.
