Exclusive: Campbell isn't worried about Everton form following DCL blow
We’re delighted to welcome former Everton striker Kevin Campbell as our exclusive columnist. Each week the former Toffees captain will be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Goodison Park…
Kevin Campbell is not concerned about any dip in form that may come as a result of Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin picking up an injury.
The forward missed the Blues’ win over Wolves this week with a hamstring issue and he could miss the next couple of Toffees games with Carlo Ancelotti saying that the striker will be out for 10-15 days, as per Ben Dinnery.
Campbell believes that the performance against Wolves has shown that Everton have what it takes to manage without Calvert-Lewin.
Speaking exclusively to Goodison News, Campbell said, “No, it’s not worrying. It’s just part and parcel of football.
“But what you want is to continue your winning ways when your top man isn’t there and the fact that they can go to a club like Wolves and win says a lot about the squad now.”

Ancelotti selected Gylfi Sigurdsson to lead the Toffees attack at Molineux and even though he wasn’t exceptional the other players on the pitch found a way to win.
Chiefly, Michael Keane played a huge role in the win as he was a rock at one end of the pitch and a goal threat at the other.
His header secured a vital win and hinted that one of the problems Everton have struggled with this season may be soon remedied.
When Richarlison missed three straight league games earlier in the season we struggled to attack teams as we lost three in a row.
No one stepped up.
Against Wolves, Keane, Iwobi, Digne and pretty much every Blues player stepped up and contributed to the win.
Hopefully, the players continue to step up in Calvert-Lewin’s absence which would make the squad so much stronger when the England international returns.
In other Everton news, Marcel Brands has declared that we won’t be making any signings in January.
