Calvert-Lewin reveals two Everton teammates who have helped him
Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has revealed that Mason Holgate and Ben Davies have helped him during the tough times at the Merseyside outfit. The 23-year-old is currently in his fourth season with the Toffees first-team and he has taken his game to the next level ever since the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti in December.
Overall, he has already contributed 15 goals across all competitions and he has certainly put his name in the reckoning for a future England role. In a recent interview, Calvert-Lewin has now revealed that the likes of Davies and Holgate have been in close association with him during the development phase and they are keen to stay put with the Toffees for the long-term.
He told: “It is a unique situation and I have shared special moments with Mason and Tom. The three of us have come through at similar times and had the ups and downs of being young professional footballers in the Premier League. It has been nice to enjoy the good experiences with them but also to share the tough times we have had. We have pulled each other through and enjoy each other’s successes as much as our own. It is positive for all of us that we’ve committed our futures to the club. Everton is where we want to be.”
Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison have been the main goal scorers for the Toffees this term and they have netted 27 times across all competitions. Quite often, they have featured upfront under Ancelotti but there is still room for improvement in the department. The club have lacked the presence of a potentially world-class player, who can make the difference in the big games and Ancelotti will be hoping to strengthen the attack further when the transfer window reopens in the summer. Everton are currently 12th on the table with 37 points on the board.
