Everton: Gabby Agbonlahor not worried despite latest Dominic Calvert-Lewin injury

Everton: Gabby Agbonlahor not worried despite latest Dominic Calvert-Lewin injury -Everton News

Gabby Agbonlahor has issued a positive verdict on Everton’s squad despite the latest injury sustained by striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

The Lowdown: Calvert-Lewin’s injuries

Ahead of the 2022/23 Premier League campaign, news emerged from the Merseyside club that the 20-year-old had suffered a knee injury which would keep him out for the start of the season. However, his return to action has since been delayed, meaning that the England international is yet to play a single game this term.

Despite getting close to a return to full fitness, the Liverpool Echo recently reported that Calvert-Lewin had felt a tightness in his leg and had consequently been withdrawn from training, with his absence documented the following day by his omission from images taken at Finch Farm.

The Latest: Agbonlahor’s comments

Agbonlahor, who now works as a pundit for Sky Sports, has said that he was nervous for the Toffees going into the season due to their various injuries, but a strong summer in the transfer market has put him at ease.

Speaking with Football Insider about the strength of the Blues’ transfer window, the former Aston Villa attacker claimed: “I was very worried at the start of the season for Everton. The transfers they’ve made I’ve been very impressed with. In midfield, two new signings look rock solid in there.

“Neal Maupay will score goals, he adds to that attacking threat and you’ve got Calvert-Lewin to come back.

“With Calvert-Lewin coming back, it will be competition for that striker spot and that’s what you need as a manager. They will be absolutely fine, Everton, they will beat their fair share of teams.”

The Verdict: Calvert-Lewin getting too injury prone?

Just last season, Calvert-Lewin only managed 17 Premier League appearances as he was out of action for 125 days with a fractured toe and quadricep issues.

Having failed to make a single appearance so far this season due to various problems, his lack of availability is starting to become a nuisance at Goodison Park.
