Dominic Calvert-Lewin has told Everton’s official website that Sam Allardyce told him to ‘run hard’ before bringing him on against Arsenal.

Calvert-Lewin was brought on for Everton, when they were 4-0 down against Arsenal.

The youngster replaced Theo Walcott, and he managed to make a notable impact on the match.

Calvert-Lewin managed to head home a consolation for Everton, and the England youth international says that Allardyce’s instructions to him were very basic.

“The manager told me to run hard: to get forward and back and try to affect the game," Allardyce said. "I got the goal but, arguably, it was a mistake from myself for Arsenal’s fifth goal, so it was a disappointing afternoon.”

Calvert-Lewin has been handed plenty of chances at Everton this season, and his goal may have given Allardyce food for though.

Calvert-Lewin has been sidelined recently, after Allardyce brought in both Cenk Tosun and Theo Walcott during the summer transfer window.

The Toffees were abject against Arsenal though, and Allardyce could ring the changes for Everton’s next match.

The Merseyside outfit are next in action against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
