Calvert-Lewin is regarded as one of the finest English attackers, but the forward has seen his progress disrupted by frequent injuries in recent years.


Everton boss Sean Dyche hopes that Calvert-Lewin will contribute significantly to the Toffees’ campaign moving forward and the star attacker has also found the net twice in the side’s last two matches.




And Townsend believes that Calvert-Lewin finds it hard to deal with it if he gets injured, stressing that the Toffees star maintains a good lifestyle.


He further added that the forward is passionate about football and is always focused on his own physical health.



Dominic has never been an injury-prone player“, Townsend said on BBC Radio 5 Live.


For Calvert-Lewin, it was not about pressure to come back and save Everton, it was for his own sake. He needed to get back fit.



Every time he broke down injured it killed him because he is not a player who does not care about football.


“He does not lead a lifestyle he should not.


He does everything he can to make sure he is the best he can be, in terms of nutrition, gym and physio – he invests so much money.


“Every time he does break down, it kills him.


Dyche’s side are now hoping to gain momentum on the field after two successive wins in the Premier League and the EFL Cup.
