Loads of Everton fans have been giving their verdict on Saturday’s defeat, and fans are split on the performance and future of Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Everton are absolutely crying out for a proper centre forward, but could they already have one under their noses?
Calvert-Lewin started 18 league games last season and made a further 14 substitute appearances, but he has started just five times in the league under Marco Silva.
Former Wigan & Fulham man, Jimmy Bullard recently showed that he’s still got it! Check out the video below...
The lanky England Under-21 international has all the tools to become a top Premier League striker, but he just hasn’t put it all together on the big stage.
That was until Saturday, when he was arguably the Toffees’ best player in the 3-1 defeat at the Etihad.
Manchester City were two up shortly after half time courtesy of brace from Gabriel Jesus, but Calvert-Lewin got his side back in the game with a well-taken goal.
Raheem Sterling’s header then put the game out of reach, but there were plenty of positives to take from Calvert-Lewin’s display.
The 21 year-old won five aerial duels, fired three shots at Ederson’s goal, and also made one key pass.
Fans still seem split on the young forward though, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
The fact that he has only started 2 or 3 games this season is baffling to me Alan. He should have been nailed on to start the last 2 home games

I’d start Calvert Lewin every game.

DCL has not got the ability to be a pl footballer, never mind to play up top on his own away at city. Can’t even hold the ball up….
