Everton fans on Twitter have been busy lauding Dominic Calvert-Lewin for his tireless performance against Arsenal, as the Toffees managed to grab an impressive 1-0 win, with some even comparing him to Goodison Park icons Graeme Sharp and Duncan Ferguson.
The academy graduate did not stop running all game, and gave Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis a torrid time at the back throughout the entire match.
In this era of ‘big 6’ dominance, has finishing 7th become as good as winning a trophy? The Pl>ymaker FC squad have their say in the video below…
Calvert-Lewin – who Transfermarkt value at £13.5million – got the assist for Phil Jagielka’s early goal, and didn’t give the Gunners backline a moment to settle as Everton looked to stretch their defence by using the 22-year-old’s pace and athleticism to full effect.
The England Under-21 star is gradually getting better and better with every passing week, and is proving to be an excellent option for Marco Silva up top due to all the hard work he puts in – his tally of six league goals could be improved upon, however.
It seems unlikely that the Merseysiders would’ve recorded their third straight win without Calvert-Lewin playing as well as he did, so let’s see what the Toffees fanbase on Twitter have been saying about the youngster…
Thinking of starting an official Calvert-Lewin fan club. I’ll get badges made and we can meet daily to talk about his hold-up play.
Every week I just love the shift he puts in. Gives it his all
That run and slide into the keeper in the first-half, proper fist pumping stuff ✊

My a country mile. Calvert-Lewin was the surprise for me. Lead the line like Big Dunc.

That performance by Calvert-Lewin today was like a very young skinny kid by the name of Graeme Sharp in his early years.#quality

It's great to have Everton back. Fantastic all round performance today! Dominic Calvert-Lewin was unplayable.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is going to be the next Harry Kane isn't he. Colossal up top, the goals will start to come.

Fair play to Calvert lewin one poor decision all game, dominated 3 experienced defenders. So hard to pick man of the match but for me it's @CalvertLewin14 superb today once again.

Buying an Everton shirt and getting Calvert-Lewin on the back of it! What a shift he’s just put in! ?
