“Losing a player of Dominic’s top quality in the week heading into the initially game is of course heading to have an effect on you,” said Lampard.
“We are possibly seeking at close to six months for the harm. It has been assessed more than a couple of days and that is exactly where we are at.
“It arrives with the territory of getting a squad and schooling at this stage. We will have to function around it.
“Other gamers will have to step up and do the career and hopefully that 6 months passes reasonably quickly and we get Dominic back.”
Calvert-Lewin skipped four months of very last period with a persistent muscle mass personal injury and was restricted to just 17 Leading League appearances, scoring five moments.
Lampard additional: “Dominic was looking great, really healthy, really solid.
“I took him out of 1 pre-season match as a precaution but by way of pre-year we ended up frequently commenting on how excellent he seemed, seemed, and we were incredibly optimistic.
“It is a knock for everyone, notably him, simply because I know the feeling as a participant when you are receiving pumped up and all set for the new time.
“I feel for him, but we will assist him, as we always do, and as a group and squad we just have to seem at the video games in front of us.”
Everton, who narrowly avoided relegation last period, are established to be with no Calvert-Lewin for their opening 7 league fixtures in opposition to Chelsea, Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest, Brentford, Leeds, Liverpool and Arsenal.
Requested if he wanted to bolster his attacking possibilities with a transfer for described goal, Chelsea’s 20-year-outdated striker Armando Broja, Lampard replied: “I would not communicate about other targets independently, but in that area of the pitch, yes, we are definitely conscious of what we have.
“We have shed Richarlison who was multipurpose across the front. I know we have bought in Dwight [McNeil] but we are really aware of spots we want to improve.
“Going into the initial video game with Salomon suspended as effectively would make it really obvious that could possibly be just one of the regions we appear at.”
