DOMINIC CALVERT-LEWIN is facing another spell out after fracturing his cheekbone in Everton’s 4-0 defeat at Aston Villa.

It is the latest in a long run of injury issues for the 26-year-old over the past year – with the forward now having to follow FA concussion protocols, though he could return sooner rather than later with a protective mask.
Writing on Facebook, Karlda Lewin said: “The life of a Premier League footballer Dad.
“The last time I went to Villa Park, he was a 16-year-old sub for Sheffield United.
“Today I was there to see him start his first game in 2 years that he’s been fully fit.
“I was nervous beyond belief but I knew how hard he’d worked to recover so had faith he’d be ok.
“To see my son hurt like that brought me to tears again. It always will no matter what age he is. He’s now in hospital getting sorted.
“I hear the names he got called by his own ‘fans’ first-hand and what I will say is this: my son lives the dream daily like you wouldn’t believe and that won’t change, regardless of what some numpty in Stone Island gear shouts.
“Stay bitter fellas. Stay bitter.
“So it’s another little setback in a long list of setbacks but he’ll be alright. He always is.”
The striker said: “Didn’t expect to end up here today. I’m sorry it wasn’t the return everyone was hoping for and no one is more frustrated than me. It’s a sore one, but I’ll be back shortly.”
It comes a week after teammate Neal Maupay was targeted by sick trolls on the platform.
