Everton manager Sean Dyche simply has to start Arnaut Danjuma ahead of Neal Maupay for tomorrow’s game against Wolves.

Dyche confirmed during yesterday’s press conference that striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin will be unavailable for the fixture following his collision with Aston Villa keeper Emiliano Martinez last week.

Indeed, the Everton boss was also reluctant to state when new arrival Youssef Chermiti would be available to feature, following his £15m move from Sporting CP earlier this month.

The Toffees are yet to recruit another striker this summer, despite consistent links with Udinese star Beto and a reported £15m bid for Southampton’s Che Adams, so Sean Dyche’s options remain limited.

Following two defeats on the spin, this is a must-win game for the Blues, who are yet to score a goal this season, and ‘wonderful‘ Danjuma must start ahead of Neal Maupay.

Maupay has squandered his chance at Everton, Danjuma must now lead the line

Maupay arrived last summer in a £15m deal with Brighton & Hove Albion but managed just one goal last season as Everton were the second-lowest scorers in the Premier League, one place ahead of tomorrow’s opposition.

Indeed, the Frenchman has continued his dreadful form and could have had a first half hattrick against Fulham on the opening day of the campaign, were it not for some atrocious finishing.

The 26-year-old also found himself unmarked at the back post at Villa Park last week, only to hit his shot straight at Emiliano Martinez, who could have read a book for the remainder of the game.

Arnaut Danjuma, who joined on loan from Villarreal, made second half appearances in both the Fulham and Aston Villa games and made an immediate difference, as his pace and directness stretched the opposition’s defence.

Maupay is clearly low on confidence and has been linked with a move away from Goodison Park, while Danjuma appears raring to get his Everton career going, and could be the outlet the Toffees need upfront.
