Everton boss Frank Lampard says he’s looking forward to working with Dominic Calvert-Lewin as the striker returns from injury in time for Tuesday night’s Premier League clash with Newcastle United (Newcastle 8/5, draw 12/5, Everton 9/5 – Match Betting).
The England forward has endured a torrid time with injuries this season but is now back available for the trip to St James’ Park.
Speaking to reporters ahead of his first Premier League game in charge of the Toffees, Lampard says he’s looking forward to building up a relationship with the prolific finisher.
He said: “I’ve watched DCL from the outside, I like his attitude and his demeanour. He has great attributes. I’m really excited to work with him.”

Meanwhile, Everton’s new arrivals Dele Alli, Anwar El Ghazi and Donny van de Beek could be set to make their debut after joining in January.
As for Newcastle new signings Bruno Guimaraes and Matt Targett are likely to feature but the game comes too soon for defender Dan Burn due to a minor toe injury.
Tuesday night also sees West Ham United look to strengthen their claim for a top-four finish when they host strugglers Watford (West Ham 4/7, draw 10/3, Watford 5/1).
The Hammers will be boosted by the return of striker Michail Antonio, while the Hornets can also welcome back top scorer Emmanuel Dennis after a one-match suspension.
In the night’s later kick-off, Manchester United will hope to put their shock FA Cup exit at the hands of Middlesbrough behind them when they travel to Burnley (Burnley 9/2, draw 3/1, Manchester United 3/5 – Match Betting).
United have an impressive record at Turf Moor, having won on all of their last five visits to the home of the Clarets.
Bruno Fernandes, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane all picked up knocks against Boro but are expected to feature, while Burnley’s Charlie Taylor is a doubt as he nurses a foot injury.
