Everton next face a trip to Forest who are 13th - yet only four points ahead. However, it’s unclear if Calvert-Lewin, who has been plagued by various injuries for the past 18 months, will be fit to feature at the City Ground.

Blues boss Dyche said: “We’ll see but I think it will be a close call because we’ve got to get him properly fit .

“I don’t think he has been for a while now so we’ve got to make sure he’s properly fit because we can’t put him in for one game and lose more.”
