Everton forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin says that he wants to show his abilities on the pitch rather than making bold statements in the media.
The young English centre forward, who scored Everton’s third in the 3-0 away win over Cardiff earlier this week, has spearheaded the Everton attack in recent games, and says that he wants to prove that he is worthy of that role.
Taking over from Richarlison, who is enduring a run of difficult form on the wing, and replacing Cenk Tosun, Calvert-Lewin is now Everton’s first choice striker after Oumar Niasse was loaned to Cardiff.
He will be looking forward to the derby this weekend too, after enjoying bristling encounters with Liverpool in the past, and he will be hoping to test their defences again on Sunday.
He told the official site that he felt his goal showed his confidence, “I’d like to think so. I kept going until the end.
“I seen the three minutes go up at the end and thought to myself it’s three more minutes for a chance to get a goal.
“Thankfully Gana has produced a bit of skill on the halfway line and found me. A couple of minutes before he could have perhaps found me but he did the second time and I’ve finished it.
“This past week I’ve been feeling confident and training well. I think I took that into the game and played with no fear.
“For me it’s not about talking too much and just showing it on the pitch. For any player it’s about consistency and I know I need to show it on a consistent basis.
“I know I can do it now it’s about proving to everyone else I can.”
