Sky Sports remind us the reason for Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s unusual goal celebration

Calvert-Lewin marked his goal against Huddersfield with a strange celebration

Everton are back. Sort of.

Two home wins on the spin – either side of the appointment of new manager Sam Alardyce – have helped them storm up the Premier League table to the dizzying heights of tenth place. Just what was needed ahead of a Merseyside derby across Stanley Park.

Their latest victory came at home to Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon. Gylfi Sigurdsson scored the opening goal of the game shortly after half-time, with Dominic Calvert-Lewis making the three points safe with the game’s second (and final) goal with under 20 minutes to play.

20-year-old Calvert-Lewin, an England under-21 international, might have confused people with the celebration that followed the goal.

But don’t worry, folks. Sky Sports, with a little help from Soccer AM’s Tubes, have moved to clarify what it was all about. Cos y’know, stuff like this matters to people.

Calvert-Lewin recently met with Tubes, who made him promise to do the celebration – known as ‘The Lawnmower’ – when he next scored. He was indeed true to his word.

Sky Sports News reminded viewers of the pair’s meeting on Monday morning, which was shared by Tubes on his Instagram account.

Yes @domcalvertlewin ???? #lawnmower #propernews
