Everton offer injury upgrade on Dominic Calvert-Lewin
Dominic Calvert-Lewin could be an early doubt for Everton’s clash with Fulham on Sunday due to a hamstring injury.
The striker was required off in the second half of Everton’s FA Cup success over Tottenham on Wednesday night.
And Everton’s assistant manager Duncan Ferguson has exposed that their leading striker pulled up with a hamstring concern.
‘ It looks like he modified his hamstring. We’re not rather sure,’ Ferguson informed BT Sport.
‘ It might be a wee bit of trouble for him.’
Calvert-Lewin has remained in superb form this season with 18 objectives in 25 appearances for Everton up until now.
And the striker was on target once again on Wednesday night as Everton edged out Spurs in a thrilling 5-4 win at Goodison Park in the FA Cup fifth round.
The game ended 4-4 after 90 minutes with Bernard scoring the winner in the very first half of additional time.
‘ It was an exciting video game. Tottenham began much better than us and got the lead but we got ourselves back into the game,’ Ferguson informed BBC Sport.
‘ At 3-1 you’re believing ‘get to half-time at 3-1’ and after that they score to put us on the back foot. Amazing video game, fantastic.
‘ It’s 25 years given that we won the FA Cup. It would be fantastic to get to the last. It keeps your season going. We want to succeed in the Premier League but the FA Cup is the one we want.’
