Style of play
Sheffield United staff Keith Briggs and Neill Collins reacted positively about Calvert-Lewin, including his attitude, while Chris Short described him as "football mad and a special talent." Manager Nigel Clough said of him: "He's a big lad who is good technically for the stage he's at and he's going to win headers against anybody", while manager Nigel Adkins described Calvert-Lewin's impressive performance in a training session: "He took the ball with his back to goal, controlled it and popped an overhead kick straight in the top corner. Brilliant stuff."
