Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has added to the club’s growing injury list after suffering a knock on international duty.

The forward replaced Tammy Abraham late into England under-21s’ European Championship qualifier victory at Latvia, but was taken off injured eight minutes later.

The extent of his injury is so far unknown, so DCL cannot yet be considered a certainty to miss Sunday’s Premier League fixture at home to West Ham United.

Calvert-Lewin has found the net three times in his last two Everton appearances, and with the only other senior strikers at the club, Oumar Niasse and Cenk Tosun, yet to get off the mark this season, his absence would be a further blow to an already depleted squad.

Right-back Seamus Coleman will be assessed by the Blues’ medical staff ahead of the weekend’s game after he withdrew from the Republic of Ireland’s squad yesterday with a foot injury.

Idrissa Gueye (knee), Yerry Mina (foot) and Theo Walcott (rib) are also doubts for Sunday’s game, while André Gomes (hamstring), Michael Keane (skull), Phil Jagielka (knee) and James McCarthy (leg) are definitely out.

Meanwhile, winger Richarlison serves the last of a three-game ban after his red card in the 2-2 draw at Bournemouth last month.
