Dominic Calvert-Lewin is hoping to kick on and earn some Premier League minutes for Everton after netting in the Carabao Cup. The 21-year-old scored twice in the 3-1 Carabao Cup second round win over Rotherham after boss Marco Silva included him as one of eight changes.
Calvert-Lewin was handed opportunities to impress in the Premier League last season under Sam Allardyce, however, he was unable to chip in with goals on a regular basis.
The forward is hoping to get his career back on track in 2018-19 and feels his hard work over the summer is starting to pay off.
“It’s nice to know that my hard work has paid off and I got the two goals,” Calvert-Lewin, who made his first start since March, told evertontv.
“We put a lot into the game to win it and have put a lot in during training. It’s definitely a cup we want to go for.
“It’s a chance to show what we can do and stake a claim for the league games. We did that, including the young boys.”
