Prior to the Luton match, Everton provides a Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Jack Harrison fitness update.

Both attackers played as Everton defeated Aston Villa 2-1 in the Carabao Cup.

It will be a “fine line,” according to Sean Dyche, if Jack Harrison can play for Everton in back-to-back games against Luton Town.

The winger signed a season-long loan with the Toffees from Leeds United during the summer transfer window. He did, however, suffer a hip problem when he first arrived, so Everton has had to wait since then.

Harrison was deemed ready to make a debut in Carabao Cup tie against Aston Villa last night. And the former Manchester City man impressed as Everton earned a 2-1 victory at Villa Park.Dyche’s side now prepare to face Luton Town in the Premier League on Saturday. But whether Harrison is in contention to keep his starting spot remains to be seen. Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Everton manager Dyche said: “It’s a fine line. I spoke to him about playing, there was a game Tuesday night [for the under-21s] we wondered about getting him 90 minutes in that.

Meanwhile, Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored in his past two appearances against Villa and the 3-1 victory over Brentford last weekend. The striker has endured fitness issues over the past two seasons, while he was unlucky to suffer a facial injury in the 4-0 Premier League loss to Villa.
According to Dyche, Calvert-Lewi will only continue to improve as he accrues more playing time. He continued, “First of all, I’m happy for him. He has been firmly entrenched for a considerable amount of time, and we have made an effort to release him from the burden of being reinserted immediately. Hopefully, this has paid off in the long run. We brought him off at a respectable point in the game last night because we understood we were working him back into first-team football and because he had looked good in the games. He can only get sharper and more fit.
