Everton manager Sean Dyche has now provided an update on the fitness of 26-year-old forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Speaking with The Athletic about Everton’s star forward, Sean Dyche said: “He’s (Calvert-Lewin) still crossing over between training and getting the extra fitness work he needs in. From what I’m told of his session today (Saturday), it went well.
And that was quite a heavy session. We’re happy with that and he seems to be in a good place, so we’re hopeful he can carry on building from that.”

The Toffees were fortuitous to return to Merseyside with the win and once again looked toothless upfront, largely down to a midfield that created very little.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin cannot return to fitness soon enough, however the club cannot go into another season relying solely on their injury-prone centre-forward.
Everton welcome Sporting CP to Goodison Park this Saturday for their final pre-season game of the summer, so perhaps the 26-year-old will be fit enough to get some minutes under his belt this weekend.
