Everton are still yet to secure a point at home this season and a 2-1 defeat to Luton Town at the weekend was a yet another humiliation.
Predictably, the Everton rallying cry has begun ahead of the weekend’s game against the Cherries, with Calvert-Lewin eyeing an immediate response to a frustrating weekend.
Speaking with the official Everton website, DCL said: “We still have another home game this week to put it right, and we fully expect to put it right with a far, far better performance.”
Dominic Calvert-Lewin hopefully can make it four goals in four games
A solitary positive to take from the weekend’s defeat was Calvert-Lewin’s continued run of goals as the England international found the net for the third consecutive game.
However, the 26-year-old says that while it is a ‘great feeling’ to be back amongst the goals, he insists that there is little consolation from scoring given the ‘bad result’.
He continued: “For me to be hitting the back of the net regularly again is a great feeling, but obviously it has fallen on a bad result, so that is where my emotions are at the minute.
It is still early in the season, and it is not panic stations; I want to make that clear. We fully expected to put in a better performance (against Luton), and we expected a better result, but it just wasn’t our day.”
Goodison is owed a top performance and a win on Saturday, but Bournemouth will be no pushovers and will see the weekend’s fixture as a winnable game just as much as Everton will.
