Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin is delighted to have scored his first senior goal for the club but says the fans helped make sure the Blues came away with all three points.
Calvert-Lewin apparently became the first player with a double-barrelled surname to score for the club in 129 years, but all he was concerned about were the three points which moved Everton level on points with Arsenal.
“It was set up by my good mate Davo [Tom Davies] and you couldn’t have written it any better,” said the teenager.
“I’ve seen he’s got down the line and put the ball in and I’ve got on the back post then fell to me.
“I couldn’t have wished for a better opportunity.
“It was tough in parts but Enner came on and changed the game and we got a bit of comfort when Rom scored the two goals and we took the game home.
“Our home form has been really good and I think the fans have a big part to play in that and they help us every game.
“It does have a big help and I think that’s the reason we’re so good at home.”
