ENGLAND STRIKER TO MISS WOLVES CLASH
England international striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin will miss the Premier League clash with Wolves on Tuesday night as a result of injury according to his manager Carlo Ancelotti. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is the topscorer for Everton this season but he won't be available due to a hamstring injury as confirmed by Carlo Ancelotti. Ancelotti said the England player will miss the Wolves game with the hamstring problem during his pre-match press conference ahead of the matchday 18 clash with hosts Wolves at the Molineux. He also said that the injury is not too serious.
Carlo Ancelotti told reporters during his presser that Dominic Calvert-Lewin had the issue before the last league game, a 1-0 defeat at home to East London outfit West Ham United. Dominic Calvert-Lewin played the whole game against the Hammers to show that the injury was not a severe one.
He was then rested for the RotherhamUnited game in the FA Cup third round alongside Richarlison and Jordan Pickford. At the time, Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti said that the three key players were rested for the Rotherham United match. Without the three players,Everton needed extra time to secure a 2-1 win over their English Championship opponents. French midfielder AbdoulayeDoucoure came off the bench to score the winner in extra time to take Everton into the fourth round, where they will face another English Championship opposition in Sheffield Wednesday. Everton will face the winner of the fourth round tie between Championship club Wycombe Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur in the fifth round of the FA Cup if they get past Sheffield Wednesday in the next round.
Apart from England striker Calvert-Lewin, Everton could be without fellow attacker Richarlison. According to Carlo Ancelotti, a decision would be made on the Brazilian international after training on Monday ahead of the Wolves clash.
