Opinion: Calvert-Lewin is showing Silva his worth with recent Everton displays

Everton were able to get back to winning ways following their humiliating 6-2 defeat to Tottenham after they beat Burnley 5-1 at Turf Moor yesterday.

A Lucas Digne brace and goals from Yerry Mina, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Richarlison ensured it was a great afternoon for supporters with their club now sitting eighth in the Premier League table.

And while they have the above names to thank for the three points, Dominic Calvert-Lewin also deserves praise coming out of the match for his display and recent form overall.

The 21-year-old has been leading the Toffees’ line over their last couple of fixtures with Silva moving Richarlison back to his more preferred position out wide in a move that has shown some promise.

Albeit he is not the most prolific of No.9s, £13.5m-rated (Transfermarkt) Calvert-Lewin has done a fairly good job up front, troubling defenders with his runs in behind and willingness to chase them down when in possession.

Later down the line, Silva will be keen to add a centre-forward to his squad who can find the back of the net on a regular basis, something that Calvert-Lewin nor Cenk Tosun look capable of doing in this moment of time.

But even when that time comes, Calvert-Lewin has shown enough in recent weeks to suggest he can still play a part in the Silva revolution at Goodison Park.
