Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Jack Harrison & Seamus Coleman injury update: Sean Dyche offers some positive news for The Toffees

Sean Dyche provided an injury update on Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Jack Harrison before Everton’s match against Arsenal at Goodison Park on Sunday.

Calvert-Lewin has been out of the team since being forced off with a facial injury in the first half of Everton’s 4-0 loss at Aston Villa on August 20 due to a collision with opposition goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, but he has been spotted in training with his teammates in both weeks over the international break.

Dyche was pleased to report that Dominic Calvert-Lewin was ready to go on Sunday after recovering from the head injury that he suffered in the Aston Villa match. Dyche said: “There are people coming back to fitness, Dom is back on the grass again and should be clear.

“With Dom, it was obviously the facial injury so he managed to keep his fitness up, which is good. He will certainly be coming back into the fold.”

“Jack Harrison is now on the grass with us as a team – only the last few days – but that’s good news and he’s feeling good. Dele is still a bit of time away, Seamus Coleman is still a bit of time away but they’re on the grass with the physios, so that’s good, but not working with us in the team.

“Dobbo is back, he trained with us and Jarrad is fine, they’re just knocks, nothing too major. So we are getting stronger.”

The previous time Arsenal visited Goodison Park, it was Sean Dyche’s first match in command, and the fight and commitment that he demands from all of his sides was on display as the Blues won 1-0.

In fact, Everton has won four of their past five home league games against Arsenal, including three straight. They last beat the Gunners four times in a row more than a century ago, between March 1910 and March 1913.

Jurrien Timber and Thomas Partey have been ruled out for the long and medium term by Arsenal, respectively, and are not anticipated to travel with the team. Bukayo Saka appears to be ready for the match despite Achilles problems.
