Everton injury claim issued by medical insider amid most recent Maupay


Neal Maupay’s arrival at Everton will be “huge” to ease the pressure to bring Dominic Calvert-Lewin back from injury prematurely.

That’s the view of medical expert Ben Dinnery, who runs the Premier Injuries site and has a background in injuries and data analysis.

Maupay, 26, signed for the Toffees from Brighton for around £15million last Friday (August 26), and the club have confirmed he is in the squad to face Leeds United on Tuesday (August 30).

Fellow centre-forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin, for whom the last 12 months have been marred by injury, is still not ready to return from his knee problem.

As quoted by club media last Friday (August 26), Frank Lampard revealed the 25-year-old is ‘ahead of schedule’ but also stressed the need for caution.

And signing Maupay will allow the manager to let Calvert-Lewin fully recover before reintroducing him, Dinnery insists.

“We are talking about a player who has had such a badly disrupted year with various setbacks,” he said Football Insiders Adam Williams.

“You really have to manage it with kid gloves. He has had 15 Premier League starts, just a third of minutes played and seven time-loss injuries in the last 12 months. He just hasn’t been able to stay in shape.

“The arrival of Neal Maupay could go a long way in easing that burden. Perhaps Lampard can resist the urge to throw him in there too quickly.

“But as long as the results keep going against the Toffees and the pressure is mounting, that’s when they’ll want to bring Calvert-Lewin back. That’s what they’re missing.”
