Kevin Campbell moots Sean Dyche tactical change that will ‘really help’ Everton

Playing two strikers will really help Sean Dyche get results at Everton, according to former Toffees player Kevin Campbell.

The Merseyside outfit currently sit 18th in the Premier League table, with just one point from their opening five matches.

Dyche’s outfit have scored just two goals so far, with both arriving in the 2-2 draw with Sheffield United earlier this month.

“Sean Dyche has got to be more offensive in my opinion, that’s the only thing that could lift the club,” Campbell told BBC Radio 5 Live, as quoted by BBC Sport.

“I like the look of Beto and Calvert-Lewin, I think they have to play as a duo, Dyche has to find a way to get them both on the pitch. I think they can play together. I remember when Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison caused major problems as a two.

“Usually if there’s only one up front, it’s very difficult, especially if you don’t have the ball for long periods. With two up there, you can play as a pair and it will really help Everton get some results.”

Miserable start

The club’s lack of positive results so far this season will be really worrying for boss Dyche and all Everton supporters.

They have one draw and four losses to their name in the new Premier League campaign, with the latest defeat coming at home to Arsenal on Sunday (17 September).

Also worrying will be the real lack of goals from Dyche’s men, with the Toffees level with newly-promoted Luton Town on two.

That figure is extremely disappointing given how the latter have played a game fewer than Everton this season, while Burnley, who have also played four matches, have scored two more goals than the Toffees.

Things really need to improve at Goodison Park, and utilising two strikers might be the best way forward. Summer signing Beto looks capable of finding the back of the net, but keeping his fellow striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin fit has been a major struggle over the years.
