Everton could start Beto against Arsenal – but not on his own.

That’s according to the Daily Mail, who have reported that Sean Dyche is considering starting Beto alongside Dominic Calvert-Lewin this weekend.

The ‘raw’ 25-year-old has featured in Everton’s last two matches in all competitions, making his debut from the bench in their Carabao Cup win over Doncaster Rovers.

Beto started his Everton career brilliantly, equalising against the League Two side before Arnaut Danjuma went onto bag the winner. The striker then made his first start in the blue shirt as Everton drew 2-2 with Sheffield United last time out.

Beto has impressed since arriving from Udinese and there was debate over whether he should continue in the starting line-up following the return of Dominic Calvert-Lewin this weekend.

The England international has been absent since suffering a facial injury in their 5-0 defeat to Aston Villa last month, however he will be available to face Arsenal.

While Dyche was facing a major dilemma of who to start at Goodison Park tomorrow, the report claims he could keep them both happy and play them both up top together.

Could Everton start Calvert-Lewin and Beto together?

It could be a very interesting idea for Everton, who have rarely had enough attacking options to even consider playing two forwards. The decision could also see a midfielder dropped and that could be a big risk against such a dominating team like Arsenal.

Both Beto and Calvert-Lewin will be dying to play against the Gunners, but it makes a very nice change for Dyche to have to decide between two very talented players.
