Tyler Onyango reveals Everton’s summer training regime following Anthony Gordon
Tyler Onyango is following in Anthony Gordon’s footsteps by undergoing an intense training regimen during Everton’s summer break.
The midfielder has missed much of the 2021/22 season through injury, with a hernia problem notably ruling him out of the final stages of the campaign. However, he still made his Premier League debut last season, coming off the bench at the end of the defeat to Manchester City in November 2021.
He then made further appearances against Chelsea and Aston Villa for the first team, but spent the majority of his time on the pitch with the Under-23s during the season. However, the 19-year-old was part of a group of youngsters who trained regularly with the senior team at Finch Farm when fit, and will be looking to go further this time around.

To help him out, the midfielder has teamed up with former Everton player Lee Molyneux, who has previously worked with Anthony Gordon and Jonjoe Kenny alongside their efforts with the club. The strength and conditioning coach posted a video to his Instagram detailing some of the work Onyango was doing, focusing on both his lower and upper body.
Molynuex also captioned his post, saying: “[Onyango] Made his Premier League debut last season and aged just 19 a few months ago, at 6’4 he is going to be an absolute monster on the pitch for the next 18-24 months. Humble, hardworking and mature.
“As I said about @anthonygordon 2 years ago, this boy will go to the top because [sic] I know he has the mentality and the mindset. Just a matter of time and seizing the opportunity when it presents itself. I can’t wait to see the journey and will do my best to help you out with that little % along the way.”
Onyango will be looking to impress Frank Lampard as soon as possible as Everton are set to return from a summer break in early July. As it stands, the only pre-season fixtures the Blues have fully confirmed are their clashes against Arsenal and Minnesota United as part of their United States tour next month.
Farhad Moshiri revealed last week that there will also be a friendly match at Goodison Park against Dynamo Kyiv to raise funds to support the people of Ukraine, with full details of that match yet to be confirmed. The Blues will also announce further summer first-team fixtures in due course.
Last summer, a number of youngsters involved in the club’s pre-season games with Charlie Whitaker flew to the United States to take part in the club’s tour and take their first step towards the senior team in the process, after some impressive appearances with the club’s Under-23s.
