A number of Everton fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on Dominic Calvert-Lewin's comments to the official Toffees website about his development at the Goodison Park club.

The 22-year-old, who was handed the number nine shirt ahead of the new Premier League season, has started his side’s opening two games, the draw at Crystal Palace and the win at Watford.

 

Calvert-Lewin made 35 Premier League appearances last term, including 19 starts, 10 of which came consecutively at the tail end of last season, which coincided with the Toffees picking up six victories, two draws and 16 goals.

In conversation with Everton's media team, he spoke of how he asked Marco Silva for the number nine shirt in the summer, plus he touched on Marcel Brands' comments saying the Toffees would not block the player’s progress amid recruitment at centre-forward.

“The way I take that is, I want to prove them right and repay them with good performances and goals," said Calvert-Lewin. “That's another reason I work hard every day… it's a massive amount of trust they have put in me and I want to repay it."

Calvert-Lewin's interview, and his overall role at the club, continue to split opinion amongst the fanbase, with some pleased with his statements of intent and eager to see him kick on, while others do not rate him particularly highly.
