Everton: Lampard dealt another huge blow to his team

Everton have had their fair share of injury problems this season which has ultimately contributed to their poor form in the Premier League, with key players missing for large chunks of the campaign, and now Frank Lampard has delivered some more bad news following the Wolves defeat.

What’s the word?

The Toffees boss delivered an update after Dominic Calvert-Lewin was missing from action against Bruno Lage’s side at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon, and it could be a huge blow to Everton’s relegation battle.

Lampard had an eight-word response for questions about the striker’s absence in his post-match press conference. He commented:

“He is not well, so we will see.”

Everton have not played in Europe since the 2017/18 Europa League. But who did they last face in the competition?

Supporters will be gutted

Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Demarai Gray, Yerry Mina and Abdoulaye Doucoure are just a few of the players who have suffered from multiple injury problems this season, and the ongoing injury issues have definitely affected the attacking output with Everton not scoring a single goal in their last four league fixtures, conceding defeats consecutively as a result.

Calvert-Lewin, in particular, has had a term full of injury and illness problems, and there is no doubt that his absence in the team has played a huge part in the lack of goals for the Toffees, with the star striker side-lined for the majority of 2021/22, only making nine appearances and scoring three goals so far, missing 17 league fixtures.

Will Everton miss Dominic Calvert-Lewin?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Supporters will surely be gutted to hear about the uncertainty surrounding the 24-year-old’s health, especially in the vulnerable situation they have found themselves. The loss of an attacking threat in the crucial final months for the Toffees could be the final nail in the coffin that sends Everton into the Championship at the end of the season.

We should get more clarity on Calvert-Lewin’s condition when Lampard addresses the press ahead of the Newcastle United game at Goodison Park later this week, but with the side currently only safe from the relegation zone based on goal difference, there will be no room for error or weakness in the Everton team in their battle to maintain safety.
