Everton fans have been left delighted by the performance of Dominic Calvert-Lewin against Sheffield Wednesday this evening after he scored a brace in a 2-0 League Cup victory.

It was a massive night for the forward given his Sheffield United allegiances and he didn't disappoint, netting both of his goals within ten minutes to ensure that match would not be a difficult one for the travelling side.

The evening was also a big one for under pressure Marco Silva, whose management has been called into question after poor form in the English Premier League.

Progression into the fourth round won't see that erased, but he's at least escaped the drama of a high profile cup exit against lower league opposition.

 

Everton will be hoping they can use this result as springboard towards bigger and better things.

However, their upcoming task, hosting Manchester City on Saturday, is sure to prove a much bigger test than tonight's.

For Calvert-Lewin it's three goals in two matches and he'll be dying to string together a pattern of regular scoring to cement his place in Silva's starting eleven.
