Everton star Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been in remarkable form this season and currently tops the scoring chart in the Premier League.

Everton have a tough run of fixtures ahead, with Saturday’s visit of Chelsea the first of seven matches in 22 days. Everton will then face Leicester City, Arsenal, Sheffield United, Manchester City and West Ham – plus a Carabao Cup quarter-final against Manchester United.

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has admitted that he’d have no other choice but to rest Calvert-Lewin.

“We are going to replace him with another striker. That can be (Cenk) Tosun, he is fit after the injury,” the Italian told evertonfc.com.

“It can be Richarlison, sometimes. There is no doubt about this.

“This is a really important period, we are going to play every three days against really important teams: Chelsea, Leicester, Arsenal, Manchester United.

“All the players will be involved. I haven’t rotated the players a lot when we had only one game a week.

“But the fact we have a game every three days, I am going to rotate the players, as I did in the first period of the season when we played a lot of games and won all the games.

“I have confidence that playing every three days, we can manage the situation better than once a week.”
