Aston Villa defender Mings, who played a key role in the Euro 2020 group stages to help England’s euphoric run to the final, is being troubled by a rib problem that kept him out of Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Brentford.
Calvert-Lewin, who has scored three goals in Everton’s opening three Premier League matches of the season, has been playing through the pain barrier with a toe injury.
Both players will be assessed before deciding if they can play a part for England.

Southgate is already without Marcus Rashford, Phil Foden and Ben White through injury or illness and could do without further withdrawals.
Players are expected to report for duty at St George’s Park on Monday before taking a light training session.
England have not played since their agonising loss to Italy on penalties in the Euro 2020 final, but can take a giant step towards qualification for Qatar 2022 during the next three matches.
Ben White is also missing due to illness and Southgate could do without further withdrawals
