Calvert-Lewin became the star of Everton’s victory in the 3-2 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage in Week 9 of the Premier League, Sunday (22/11/2020) evening WIB. He was able to score two goals in this match.
Another Everton goal was born from Abdoulaye Doucoure. Meanwhile, Fulham was only able to reply through Bobby Reid and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
Calvert-Lewin’s two goals against Fulham continued his fertile period with Everton. The 23-year-old striker has scored a total of 13 goals this season with 10 of them in the Premier League.
He only missed two goals against opponents in the Premier League this season, when Everton lost 0-2 to Southampton and 1-3 to Manchester United. Calvert-Lewin is now temporarily sitting at the top of the Premier League’s top scorer list. He is one goal adrift of Son Heung-min who collected 9 goals.
Calvert-Lewin’s main advantage that makes him a goal-hungry striker is his positioning and finishing. He is a Fox in The Box type of attacker who doesn’t touch the ball much but is dangerous in the penalty box.
This was shown again by Calver-Lewin against Fulham. Two of his goals came from one touch in the penalty area to greet a pass from the flank.
This England national team striker said that the bait from the wing was his favorite intake of the ball. He is able to optimize his strengths in positioning with this.
“I think the first half was a reflection that we benefited from the new system. I got a chance from the flank with a cross that allowed me to come up to greet him,” he said. Calver-Lewin quoted from the official website Everton.
“That’s what I like, being in the right area at the right time. In the second half, I had to go deeper. We did that and we were able to get the win,” he explained.
