Kevin Sheedy praises Dominic Calvert-Lewin, compares him to Everton striking legends

Everton secured a hard-fought draw in the Merseyside derby yesterday, coming from behind twice to claim a 2-2 draw.

Michael Keane headed home the first after Sadio Mane had given Liverpool an early lead and Dominic Calvert-Lewin continued his impressive form to score the leveller in the second-half, following Mo Salah’s strike. 

Richarlison was sent off and Jordan Henderson saw a potential winner chalked off after a contentious VAR decision. 

But Calvert-Lewin’s header was the highlight of the game, demonstrating immense physical prowess to spring up and head home the crucial goal.

For one former Everton legend, who also played for their fiercest rivals, it reminded him of a couple of Everton striking powerhouses of the past. 

 

Kevin Sheedy, who won two league titles as an Everton player, posted on Twitter after the game, suggesting that Calvert-Lewin reminded him of the great Duncan Ferguson and Graeme Sharp with his heading prowess. 

That is fine praise indeed, but even Big Dunc and Sharpy would have to admit they would struggle to get that far off the ground for a header. 

Hopefully, the comparisons to such previously esteemed strikers can continue for DCL, as he goes on the best run of form in his career to date.
