How Richarlison has adapted to centre-forward role at Everton

Richarlison (£6.9m) has made a mockery of recent suggestions that he cannot play as a centre-forward for Everton.

Two weeks ago we compared his first two performances in that position against his displays as a left attacking midfielder and discovered some discouraging results.

However, it appears both Richarlison and his manager Marco Silva were spurred on by the criticism. They stuck to their guns and persisted with the new role, and in the last two Gameweeks the Brazilian has registered two goals and an assist, averaging 10 points per game.

We are now revisiting the data to see whether or not Richarlison really has adapted to a striker’s role and if recent performances are sustainable or not.

            Interesting!

            Haven't seen United lately. Hows their def? A goalfest at Anfield is possible but having a hard time to figure out the City game.

          2FT... Need some help fellas.

          A) Mitro & Maddison -> Arnie & Fraser (Have Wilson)

          B) Mitro & Maddison -> Arnie & Gudmundsson

          C) Mitro & Maddison -> Ings/Jiminez & Martial/Felipe Anderson

          1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
            • 1 Year

            A with deulofeou instead of Fraser

            • 9 Years
            3 days, 21 hours ago

            Arnie & Martial ideally. How about a mini-wildcard for a -4? Anyone else you want to get rid of?

            1. Prison Mike

              Not atm, but that would be ideal.

          Best option:

          a) Doherty, Martial, Jimenez
          b) Mendy, Brooks, Wilson
          c) Mendy, Gudmundsson/Brooks, Jimenez

          (WC in GW 15-16)

                Big mistake. Barley is a cereal underperformer.

                  • 2 Years
                  3 days, 21 hours ago

                  Yep. Not biting for barley trap.

            4. Misteak
              • 3 Years
              3 days, 21 hours ago

              Is it really a terrible idea to downgrade Salah to Mane?

              I have 2FTs and 0ITB. Maddison needs replacing but I'm obviously limited to 6.7 mids, which excludes anyone I'd want long-term. Doing Salah to Mane would allow me to spend up to 9.9 on Mads replacement.

                • 9 Years
                3 days, 21 hours ago

                Could be a misteak.

                I definitely would not do that now . There's a high chance they switch to 4231 for this game where salah has a big positional advantage over mane . If you not happy to switch Maddison to anyone cheaper than him maybe just switch a defender to play four at the back this week and roll the two to do that move next week potentially when they should be back to 433 away from home

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Maddison ->
              A) D. Silva
              B) Martial
              C) F. Anderson

                B if you have plans for the 1m saving over D.Silva.

                  Thanks atm no any plans but 1m is useful later for sure.

              Bring in Gudmundsson or Fraser??

                3 days, 21 hours ago

                Times are tough. Fraser will probably be a sell here with a fail soon.

              2. Taking one for the team
                • 3 Years

                Gudmundsson may lose some set pieces with Brady fit again.

              Would you rather have:

              Maddison, Richardson and Mitrovic
              Or
              Mane, Gudmundsson and Kamara
              OR
              Mane, Barley and Success?

              A) replace Maddison
              B) bench Maddison and start westham defender .

                B is what I'm doing - doesn't seem like a bad option, then bank the FT for the IB.

                I want Salah C this week but it's a case of Hazard or Salah for the next two (FUL, wat vs EVE, tot) - if I do sell, Hazard will come back in for GW14. Bought for 11m so don’t lose much value either.

                A) Hazard & Bilva > Salah & 7m
                B) Bilva > 8.9m
