The Premier League monthly awards have been announced, and both the Player of the Month and the Manager of the Month have gone to Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Carlo Ancelotti respectively.
Calvert Lewin has been the most in-form striker this season with six goals to his name in the Premier League already. He also looks to be in contention for the England squad set to participate in the Euro 2021 next year.
Considering that he’s only played four matches, and has bagged the first hat-trick of his senior career, the stats don’t lie when it comes to the Englishman’s records.
The 23-year-old has scored 10 goals across all competitions this season already, making his debut for England last night where he headed in his first goal for his country alongside fellow first-timers Connor Coady and Danny Ings.
On the other side of the pitch, Don Carlo’s Everton have been seemingly unstoppable in the four matchdays already played, winning all of their fixtures to find themselves at the top of the table this season.
Due to the impressive performance of the Toffees on the pitch, Carlo Ancelotti has become the first Manager of the Month award recipient for the 20/21 season.
Following an impressive transfer window performance by the Merseyside blues this summer, the team has come alive in the early goings of the season, netting 4 against Crystal Palace and 5 against West Brom whilst maintaining composure on all fronts.
Eyebrows were raised when the Italian tactician joined Everton last season, but things seem to have clicked for the team and they look like genuine contenders for the top 6 at the very least this season.
However, the season is long and consistency is one of the hardest things to produce in football. Just ask local rivals Liverpool, who were thrashed 7-2 this past weekend while Everton dispatched Palace 4-2.
