Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin faces a spell after sustaining a facial injury, according to reports.
The striker was eliminated against Aston Villa in the Toffees’ 4-0 loss at Villa Park after colliding with Emi Martinez in the first half.
The clash of heads left the striker with a significant mark on his face and he was sent off as a result.
It has now been reported by BBC Sports that the attacker faces a spell on the sidelines.
They say Calvert-Lewin has a bruised face and will now undergo further evaluation with club medical staff this week.

Moreover, Calvert-Lewin must follow the FA’s concussion protocol before returning for Everton.
As he was trying to finish the game, Everton management made the decision to take him off and it was the right one.
The Toffees are looking for a new striker, with Southampton’s Che Adams being the priority this summer.
Mail Sport have revealed Everton made an improved offer worth £15m for the striker this week.
However, a deal is yet to be agreed between the clubs as talks continue following the offer.
It remains to be seen whether Dyche will get his man, but they are in desperate need of attacking reinforcements following news of Calvert-Lewin’s injury.
