Everton boss Rafa Benitez confirms Dominic Calvert Lewin has broken his toe in huge injury blow
Ahead of Everton’s clash against Burnley on Monday night, fans were surprised to see that Dominic Calvert-Lewin had been completely left out of Rafael Benitez’s squad.
However, there was good reasoning for this as the Everton boss confirmed that the England international had in fact broken his toe, and is set to be ruled out for the next few weeks.
Everton have started brightly under Benitez, and have so far remained unbeaten in the Premier League, earning seven points from a possible nine before heading into the international break.Calvert-Lewin had scored in all three of their opening fixtures, but Everton must adjust to life without their no.9 for the time being.
Benitez confirmed that Everton are set to be without Calvert-Lewin for at least two to three weeks as his toe problem was compounded by a thigh injury he picked up in training.The Everton boss said: “He has broken his toe. He was training with problems and playing with pain. He had an injury the other day to his quadriceps and we have to wait two-to-three weeks, maybe more.”
