DCL Boost Ahead Of Arsenal Visit

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is fit and available for Everton's Premier League clash with Arsenal at Goodison Park.

The 26-year-old striker suffered a facial injury after a heavy collision with Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez last month but is now back in contention as the Blues take on Mikel Arteta's side on Sunday (4.30pm BST).

Speaking in Friday's pre-match press conference, Sean Dyche also revealed summer signing Jack Harrison, who has been sidelined with a hip problem since signing on loan from Leeds United, has began full training with the group in the past couple of days - but the visit of Arsenal will come too soon for the winger.

"With Dom, it was obviously the facial injury so he managed to keep his fitness up, which is good," said Dyche. "He will certainly be coming back into the fold.

"Jack Harrison is now on the grass with us and the rest of the team, only in the past couple of days, but that is good news and he is feeling good.

"Jack won't [be available for this weekend]. He's only just out on the grass again with the main group - he's been out on the grass with the sports science team and strength and conditioning side of things, but actually training with us only for literally a couple of days, so he's going to need a bit more time than that."

On the qualities Harrison will bring to his squad, Dyche added: "He can work in a number of key areas on the pitch. We know he can score, we know he can assist and we know he's got quality. But he's also got a high work ethic and I think that's a really healthy mixture for any team, but certainly for this team. We want him to do all of that.

"It's early stages of him getting true fitness but he is a fit lad, that's for sure. He tests well, as in our physical testing, and he looks free. The main thing with injuries sometimes - when players come back sometimes they don't look free, but he does. He's joined in training and he looks like he's clear and ready to go, so know it's just about getting him up to full match speed and match fitness."

Lewis Dobbin, who missed the 2-2 draw at Sheffield United last time out, as well as Jarrad Branthwaite and James Tarkowski have all overcome minor issues to be available for selection.

That means only Seamus Coleman and Dele, who are both currently completing individual work out on the grass, are unavailable for Everton this weekend along with Harrison.
