Everton insider ‘The Bobble’ has said that Dominic Calvert-Lewin could make his long-awaited comeback against Burnley.
Who should Everton sign after Mykolenko?
The Twitter account, which is followed by renowned journalists such as The Athletic’s Everton correspondent Patrick Boyland and The Times’ Paul Joyce, tweeted on Monday evening that the striker was ‘in contention’ for the Boxing Day fixture.
As per The Bobble, the 24-year-old has returned to team training and is apparently feeling ‘no discomfort from his injury’. Everton’s medical staff will make a ‘final decision’ on his involvement closer to the trip to Turf Moor.
Calvert-Lewin played the first three Premier League games of the season, scoring in each one, but has since been sidelined with a fractured toe.
How big a boost will Calvert-Lewin’s comeback be?
The Toffees are already without two striking options in Richarlison and Salomon Rondon, so Calvert-Lewin’s return could be especially important.
Here’s how some Everton fans reacted to The Bobble’s “brilliant” update.

“Brilliant news but I would put him on the bench to ease him in as Mee and Tarkowski are hard men. Simms deserves a start.”
“Yessssssssssssss El Bobble has just made every Blue’s Christmas.. until DCL pulls his hammy on Christmas Day”
“45 years old and been singing Dom songs since this tweet “
“Bobble, our lord and saviour”
“Finally some good news”
