"Dominic Calvert-Lewin Has An Incredible Leap On Him Like Cristiano Ronaldo"

Dominic Calvert-Lewin's incredible start to the season has seen him compared to Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Everton forward has scored six goals in his first four Premier League games while grabbing a hat-trick in the Carabao Cup, in addition to earning a first England call-up.

Forward partner Richarlison has paid tribute to the 23-year-old's transformation and likened his aerial ability to 'CR7.'

"Dominic's development has been really impressive," he told FIFA's website per Goal.

"He's transformed into a complete striker. I remember when I got here he was nothing like the player he is today.

"It's down to the work he's put in. He's in the gym every day, he's always working on his finishing. And playing under [Carlo] Ancelotti he'll keep getting better and better.

"He's had a superb start to the season and without doubt deserved his England call-up. He must be a nightmare to play against and he has an incredible leap on him like Cristiano Ronaldo."

Meanwhile, Carlo Ancelotti's arrival on Merseyside late last year has helped Calvert-Lewin develop his game and blossom into a complete forward.

He ended last season with a tidy return of 15 goals but he is already on track to smash that total.

Another man who has impressed for the Toffees is summer arrival James Rodriguez.

Signing on what is believed to be a free from Real Madrid, the Colombian is already on his way to becoming a Goodison Park cult hero.

"He's a very special talent," Richarlison stated. "He's the No.10 for his national team, he's got an outstanding pedigree - Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Porto. He'd walk into any team in the Premier League.

"I watch a lot of Premier League games - what team wouldn't want James Rodriguez? He's made a brilliant start at Everton, and I really hope it continues so we can achieve our targets this season."

Everton are currently top of the Premier League after winning their opening four games, but the club haven't won a major trophy since 1995.

"We want to win a cup," Richarlison continued. "The supporters here are really passionate and they have been waiting for this for too many years.

"I think now that we have Ancelotti, and with the signings he's made, we can win a cup and fight for a Champions League place.

"Obviously it's difficult in England because you have the [big] six, but we're a different team from last season. We had a lot of injuries then and we've signed quality players in the positions we needed.

"We've made a really exciting start to the season and Ancelotti is keeping us focused and motivating us. I really believe we can qualify for the Champions League."

Do you think Dominic Calvert-Lewin is the most in-form striker around right now?
