Dominic Calvert-Lewin injury: Everton striker out for a ‘number of weeks’ after suffering setback

Dominic Calvert-Lewin will remain out “for a number of weeks” after suffering a setback in his rehabilitation from a quad injury, Everton have confirmed.

The England striker has been out since August with the injury and has featured in just three Premier League game this season.

The news is a further blow to manager Rafael Benitez, who will be without influential midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure for an extended period after he suffered a broken foot against West Ham on Saturday.

Everton have also been without striker Richarlison since September, although the Brazil international is nearing a return.

Calvert-Lewin, who scored a goal in each of his three Premier League appearances in August, will continue to receive specialist treatment but is a doubt for England’s internationals in November.
