We’re delighted to welcome injury expert Dr Rajpal Brar as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the injury situation at Everton...

BBC pundit Dion Dublin is wrong with regard to his assessment of Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin amid his return from injury, according to Dr Rajpal Brar.

The injury expert reacted to his comments recently where he suggested that the England international does not even need to train to get into the rhythm of playing regularly and scoring goals.

However, it does appear to be more down to the fact that the Toffees did not rush him back and gave him the optimum recovery time before ensuring he returned to action and is fit enough for Crystal Palace as well.

Discussing his situation exclusively with Goodison News, Brar, a doctor in physical therapy and a sports scientist, said:

Not sure how true that is because we’ve seen Calvert-Lewin come back quickly multiple times and get reinjured multiple times.

“He recently gave an interview saying that he owes his current injury-free spell and form to not rushing back.

The Toffees signed Beto over the summer and he was someone who Sean Dyche wanted to bring in since January.

It’s evident that the Portuguese is slowly adapting to his manager’s system and Calvert-Lewin knew that the team weren’t in grave danger in his absence.

His presence still benefits the squad a great deal as he’s arguably the most talented player in the side and Everton are a force to be reckoned with whenever he’s starting.
