The 22-year-old has been manager Marco Silva’s first choice ahead of Turkey international Cenk Tosun in the English Premier League team.

Striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin is enjoying his time in the English Premier League side Everton.

He’s been chosen by manager Marco Silva as the first choice in the attack ahead of Turkey national team footballer Cenk Tosun.

“I’ve played in my favoured position for the last few games now,” Calvert-Lewin told The Sports Mole.

“I’ve proved what I can do up there with my current performances, and I’m helping the team to put in good performances and results. I’m hitting the back of the net as well.”

“Everyone knows you have to lead the line, and it comes with great responsibility. I will take that pressure on my shoulders. I want to lead the line for Everton. I’m happy to be doing that at the moment,” he added.

“If I want to get to where I want to get to and score many goals for Everton, I have to take that responsibility on.”

“I’d like to think my last few performances have shown that I can lead the line and I’m capable of taking that responsibility and lead the lads from the front,” he commented.

“That is why where we are at the moment. We have to be honest with ourselves, there have been times when we have not come to the floor as we should have.”

“Consistency is key and momentum. There is no hiding place. We are all aware it is not good to be winning and then losing games. We want to go on winning streaks and build momentum,” he continued.

“We can build momentum from Chelsea; there are seven games left and we have to try to win those.”
