Everton are having a nightmare season, as injury problems and poor performances have led the side into a relegation battle in the Premier League.
They are currently 17th and only safe from the drop zone by goal difference, with Frank Lampard left with no room for error going forward into the remaining months of the season.
With 12 games left to go, the Toffees have the opportunity to pick up 36 points in their pursuit for safety in the league table and at this point of the season they must try to snatch as many as they can so that they don’t find themselves relying on relegation competitors results to save them from their first drop out of top flight football in 70 years.
Although there is still a healthy chance for Everton to stay up in the Premier League next season, it may be too little too late for some of the players and they could be tempted away from the club following a season of doubt and disappointment, with the potential for particular players to secure a more comfortable future for their careers elsewhere.
Daily Star journalist, Paul Brown, has revealed the biggest disaster Everton could face this season, that could be worse than the relegation issues, he told GIVEMESPORT:
“At the moment, it’s going to sound strange because Richarlison has been the player playing every week and giving them good minutes, but I still think Calvert-Lewin would be the biggest loss out of the two of them.”
Dominic Calvert-Lewin has had a difficult season following a number of injury issues that saw him side-lined back in September, only to return in the new year but has still been inconsistent in the side with knocks and fitness concerns over the last few months.
Despite his injury woes, the England international has been inevitable for Everton since he joined back in 2016 from Sheffield United, scoring 56 goals and assisting 16 times in 182 appearances, with a goal involvement every 2.5 games he has played, proving just how integral the striker’s presence has been to the team.
The £72k-per-week goal machine who was hailed “fabulous” by Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness, has already had interest from other Premier League clubs this season, with Arsenal becoming firm favourites to sign the striker according to the Daily Mail.
Lampard could be set for nightmares extending further than this season’s relegation battle if the club were to lose one or more of their best players and should do everything he can to offer a bright future that Calvert-Lewin can see himself a part of at Goodison Park.
