Dominic Calvert-Lewin is confident his partnership with Oumar Niasse will give Everton a ‘different dynamic’.
During the Senegal international's spell with the Toffees U23 side, he was paired with the 20-year-old striker - a combination that produced eight goals.
Now back in the senior setup with the youngster, both players were on the scoresheet in last week's dramatic 3-2 win over Watford at Goodison Park.
Niasse's 67th minute effort halved the hosts' two-goal deficit before Calvert-Lewin netted the equaliser six minutes after his intoduction in the 68th minute. A late Leighton Baines penalty sealed victory for the Merseysiders.
And the former Sheffield United forward believes the understanding he developed with Niasse in the team's B side will prove effective and create more problems for opposition defenders.
“The more you play with someone, the better you get to know them and their game,” Calvert-Lewin told club website.
“I played with Oumar in the Under-23s last season, so we learned how each other plays.
“As a team, it gives you a different dynamic when you have two strikers.
"It can sometimes cause opponents more problems.
“It is good to have a hand up there sometimes.
“You can share the workload but I am happy to play up there by myself or with a partner.
“It does not faze me as long as I am playing.”
