Everton: Fans unite in saying Calvert-Lewin is not good enough

Loads of Everton supporters have been agreeing with one another on social media that Dominic Calvert-Lewin is not good enough to lead the Blues’ attack at present.

Marco Silva placed his trust in the Sheffield-born centre-forward midway through his inaugural campaign at Goodison Park, having seemingly grown frustrated at the efforts of Cenk Tosun.

Calvert-Lewin failed to return his manager’s trust with goals, however, as he scored six Premier League strikes in 35 appearances (WhoScored) and went through a goal drought that persisted for seven games at the tail end of the term while holding down the starting striker role.

His struggles to find the back of the net have carried over into the new season, as well, with Calvert-Lewin failing to register a goal in the opening three matches of the campaign while Silva waits patiently to hand summer arrival Moise Kean his first start in the English top-flight.

It has not been through a lack of chances that the £18million-rated forward (TransferMarkt) has failed to break the goal line since March 9, either, as he averaged 2.6 shots per ninety minutes last season, albeit dropping to 0.8 this term according to data collected by WhoScored.

Calvert-Lewin is also averaging fewer completed dribbles and key balls than he achieved across 2018/19, while misplacing 17 of his attempted 42 short passes.

Everton fans are now rallying on social media stating that it is not ‘even a question’ over whether or not Calvert-Lewin is good enough to lead the Blues’ attack.
