Dominic Calvert-Lewin is enjoying an incredible season with Everton as he has scored 19 goals in all competitions this season.

Tom Davies, who closely tracked the English forward’s rise from the Toffees’ U23 squad to the senior side, was full of praise for his teammate. He told

Sky Sports

: "I am so proud of him, he has been fantastic this year.

"I think he has had a lot of people maybe putting a bit of doubt on him in previous years, but this year he has put all that to bed.

"Working with him every day, I can see the work that he puts in, how much time off the pitch he thinks about things, and really gets himself in the best frame of mind and physical state that he can be to perform how he has done.

"It is not a surprise to me how well he is doing, and I still think he has a lot of levels to reach - and will reach - because of the person he is and how professional he is.

"You always want to see your friends doing well, we are all buzzing for him and long may it continue. Off the pitch, the way he has grown as a person is also fantastic."

Although the 24-year-old striker will miss his side’s Friday clash with Tottenham due to an injury, Davies believes a win over Spurs would be the perfect platform for a strong finish to the campaign.

"If we can get three points in the game on Friday, then it really does give us a spark and that might fuel us to carry on in the last stretch of the year with a lot of confidence and positivity," he added.

"It is massive we get a positive result."
