“It’s always important for a centre-forward to get on the scoresheet, especially before the season starts to build confidence. It was a great ball from Tarky from the back, something we spoke about in the week, so it was nice to execute that on the day.

When Tarky is getting on the ball, I know he’s got the quality to find the pass, so I’ve got to make the run.” - Striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been speaking about his goal in the final pre-season game against Dynamo Kyiv, and his expectations for the season ahead.
