Frank Lampard has identified Dominic Calvert-Lewin as a ‘major threat’ for Everton for when they play Chelsea in the Premier League at Goodison Park later this evening.
As cited by The Guardian, the Blues boss also added that it is an ‘exciting battle’ to see who will challenge Harry Kane more for the England national team out of him and Tammy Abraham, and applauded what the former Sheffield United striker has done to get himself in the plans of Gareth Southgate.
Calvert-Lewin will be key to Everton win
There is no doubt that if the Merseyside club want to beat Lampard’s team, then Calvert-Lewin will surely be a key player.
Can Everton do better than Calvert-Lewin up front?
The 23 year-old has scored 11 goals in 11 games so far in the English top flight in the 2020/21 term (Sofascore), but it is not just his ability to find the back of the net that should bring a lot of confidence to Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
He also wins no fewer than 7.3 of his duels a game in England’s highest division on average, showing that he has the ability to bully the back line of Chelsea, which may be needed given that they have kept eight clean sheets in their last 12 matches in all competitions.
Indeed, Calvert-Lewin will have to be at his very best if the Toffees are to get all three precious points.
