Sam Allardyce has raised concerns about the persistent injury problems faced by Everton’s striker, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, writes the GN.
Due to various injuries, the Toffees’ top player has only been able to play in 12 Premier League matches this season.
On Saturday, the 26-year-old returned to the league in a goalless draw against Crystal Palace, marking his first appearance since early February.
Allardyce said (via talkSPORT): “They can’t score at the front end,”
“Calvert-Lewin has had so many injuries yet again, I don’t know why, but it’s a big problem at the football club why he’s been injured as often and as long as he has.”
Despite being a highly skilled striker and nearing 60 goals for Everton, Calvert-Lewin has had significant disruptions due to multiple injuries this season, including knee and hamstring problems. As a result, he has been unable to demonstrate his value to manager Sean Dyche, scoring only one goal in 13 matches across all competitions.
This situation is understandably frustrating for the player, the manager, and the fans, who are aware of how much Calvert-Lewin could have contributed this season.
