Everton Injury News vs Fulham: Defender ruled out as Dominic Calvert-Lewin boost
Everton are set to host Marco Silva’s Fulham on Saturday as they look to get back on the winning track after losing 2-0 to Manchester United. Ahead of the crucial tie against the Cottagers, Dominic Calvert-Lewin has trained with the team and is doing well at the moment.
Everton have picked up two points in their last three games but it is worth mentioning that their last three fixtures were against Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United. The Toffees have been without Calvert-Lewin since the Liverpool game as he has struggled with a hamstring problem.
After being questioned week in and week out regarding Calvert-Lewin’s condition, Sean Dyche has finally been able to deliver an optimistic update about the Englishman. Calvert-Lewin has trained the whole week and is doing well which should be a huge boost to Everton’s hopes. Although he might not be match fit to play an entire game, Dyche could look to give him a cameo appearance off the bench.
Everton Injury News vs Fulham as Seamus Coleman ruled out but Dominic Calvert-Lewin doing well in training
Coleman has got a niggly hamstring which will need a bit of time to settle down. He’s been in fine form so it’s a bit awkward for us, it shouldn’t be out too long but he won’t make it for the weekend. Patterson is coming back after an injury and there hasn’t been much game time but he is certainly in the thinking.
The truth is [about Calvert-Lewin being available] he’s training and going well with his training regime going good. (via club’s official YouTube Channel)
Seamus Coleman has been ruled out after being substituted against MUFC. With the captain ruled out, his natural replacement will be Nathan Patterson, however, the Scotsman himself has come back from an ankle injury and hasn’t had enough game time and match sharpness as pointed out by the gaffer. If he continues to train well, Patterson could start in place of Coleman or Dyche will have to deploy Ben Godfrey as the makeshift right back.
There is still no indication that Calvert-Lewin will play a part in the game but he’s training well so there is a decent chance he will at least make it to the bench.
