Digne keeps up FPL scoring sequence with double-digit haul

Everton’s run of four Premier League home matches without a victory was halted at Goodison Park on Sunday as Bournemouth were beaten 2-0.

The Toffees also recorded their first clean sheet since November on an excellent afternoon for owners of Everton’s defensive assets – in particular, Lucas Digne and Kurt Zouma.

We round up the key Fantasy talking points, manager quotes and injury updates from a fifth defeat in seven top-flight fixtures for Eddie Howe’s side.

Everton 2-0 Bournemouth

  • Goals: Kurt Zouma (£5.0m), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.3m)
  • Assists: Lucas Digne (£5.2m), Ademola Lookman (£5.1m)

Since establishing himself as Everton’s first-choice left-back in Gameweek 4, Lucas Digne (£5.2m) hasn’t gone more than two Premier League matches without delivering an attacking or defensive return.

That sequence was kept alive on Merseyside earlier today as Digne supplied the assist for Everton’s headed opener, teeing up Kurt Zouma (£5.0m) with a delicate cross from the left flank.

No FPL defender has been directly involved in more Premier League goals than Digne (five – three goals, two assists) over the last seven Gameweeks.

Digne’s attacking appeal has never been in question, of course: the French left-back has supplied ten more key passes than the next-most creative FPL defender in 2018/19 and has provided more “big chances” than any other player in his position.

Digne created two more of what Opta deem clear-cut opportunities on Sunday: one being the delivery for Zouma’s goal and the other a cross that resulted in Michael Keane (£4.9m) clipping the Bournemouth bar with a looping header.

The former Barcelona defender also ranks fourth for attempts on goal among defenders this campaign and had another two efforts (a blocked free-kick and a follow-up shot) at Goodison Park against the Cherries.

Reservations about Digne as a Fantasy option mostly surround Everton’s defensive fragility, which is understandable after an eight-match run for Marco Silva’s side without a Premier League clean sheet.

Only Huddersfield Town have conceded more big chances than the Toffees since the start of December, meanwhile.

Many of Digne’s current and prospective owners will be willing to overlook those deficiencies at the back but those who like the bread and butter of clean sheets probably will need more convincing than this first shut-out since Gameweek 13.

Bournemouth began this match much the better of the two sides, with David Brooks (£5.1m) striking the post with the best of the Cherries’ opportunities after running clean through on goal.

Brooks was also denied a possible penalty when Idrissa Gueye (£4.8m) dived in on the Welshman in the Everton box.

Ryan Fraser (£6.1m) created two half-chances for Joshua King (£6.3m) from the left as the visitors bossed the opening half hour, with the natives getting increasingly restless at Goodison as Everton floundered at both ends of the pitch.

Silva’s side didn’t register a single shot on target in the opening 45 minutes, either, though there was a gradual improvement as the first half drew to a close and Everton were arguably the better side after the break.

Still, the half-chances came for Bournemouth, with Steve Cook (£4.4m) nodding a Fraser corner onto the top of the net and Jordan Pickford (£5.0m) having to rush out to deny Dan Gosling (£4.7m)in stoppage time.

The Cherries forced Pickford into seven saves overall, while Asmir Begovic (£4.4m) didn’t register a single stop.

The England goalkeeper looked uncertain in the opening stages of this encounter before recovering some composure, though Seamus Coleman (£5.2m) still seems to be a weak link at right-back.

Keane and Zouma, at least, looked a solid partnership at centre-half with Yerry Mina (£5.4m) left on the bench.

Silva gave his opinion on the game:

It was tough but to be honest, we deserved the three points. We didn’t start the match well in the first 20-25 minutes. It was different in the last 15 minutes of the first half, we controlled the game a bit better and started to create some chances.

Even in that first 25 minutes they only had one clear chance and it was a foul on Zouma, I don’t understand how the referee didn’t see that foul. All the people in the stadium can see that but that the referee and his assistants didn’t see that is strange.

In the second half, we started better and faster and breaking more of that first pressure in a different way.

Richarlison (£6.9m) was back up front for this match and was anonymous in the first half, though had a bit more of an impact after the break: the Brazilian was only denied a goal when his close-range shot on 48 minutes was cleared off the line by Nathan Ake (£5.0m).

There was a sufficient lack of menace for his owners to be slightly concerned, however, and the Brazilian is averaging only three FPL points per appearance in the last six Gameweeks.

Paul Pogba (£8.4m) is the only FPL midfielder to have attempted more shots than Richarlison in that time, however.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.3m) was similarly invisible before the interval but improved slightly after half-time and on 75 minutes delivered a sublime ball into Richarlison, who could only head the Iceland international’s delivery wide.

Bernard (£5.9m) and Ademola Lookman (£5.1m) were preferred on the flanks and Lookman was Everton’s only bright spark early on, producing a couple of teasing deliveries in from each wing before gradually fading as the game wore on.

It was Lookman, however, who teed up Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.3m) for the hosts’ second goal and the youngster may have impressed enough to keep Theo Walcott (£6.1m) out of the side when Everton visit Southampton in Gameweek 23.

The Cherries have only collected four points from a possible 21 in the last seven Gameweeks but Eddie Howe was reasonably happy with his side’s efforts:

It’s a difficult one to take and one that is similar to our recent run. Personally, I’m really pleased with our performance.

We started strongly, created chances, defended well and then we switched off for a second and got punished. The game is then more difficult. We penned them in but couldn’t get that goal.

At the time, I thought the first penalty shout on Brooks probably was a penalty. I haven’t seen it back, so I may be wrong. At the end, I’ve then been told there was a stonewall, but that’s the way things are going for us at the moment.

We saw a really committed team performance today and both individually and collectively we were very good. I think we have to take a lot of confidence from the performance, not the result. If we play like that again, we can take confidence the points will come.

Fraser’s owners could have been rewarded with an assist on another day: the Scottish winger, who was playing on the left of a front three alongside King and Brooks, created more chances than anyone on show at Goodison Park and indeed all other midfielders bar James Maddison (£6.8m) in Gameweek 22 (so far).

King and Fraser were passed fit to play after recovering from illness and injury respectively but Callum Wilson (£6.6m) was unavailable and was arguably missed up top, with King lacking the conviction of his sidelined team-mate.

Howe commented on Wilson’s problem ahead of kick-off:

Callum’s hamstring strain isn’t serious but enough to keep him out of this game.

Howe added that he “didn’t know” if Wilson would be fit to recover for the match against West Ham next weekend.

Nathaniel Clyne (£4.4m) made his Premier League debut for the Cherries at right-back while there was a surprise return for Adam Smith (£4.3m), who had initially been ruled for three months with a knee injury in November.

Howe said of the full-back’s recovery:

I thought Adam Smith performed well today. He’s been doing a lot of fitness and running and I think that showed today. He didn’t look rusty and performed strongly.

Everton XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Coleman, Keane, Zouma, Digne; Gueye, Gomes; Lookman, Sigurdsson (Mina 90′), Bernard (Walcott 78′); Richarlison (Calvert-Lewin 87′).

Bournemouth XI (4-3-3): Begovic; Clyne, S. Cook, Ake, Smith; Stanislas (Mousset 68′), Lerma, Gosling; Fraser, Brooks (Ibe 83′), King.

    Aguero was looking like falling but people having started blindly buying him and so he's up to -94% and rising. Thanks Kane!

    Is Son and Auba to Sane and Rash crazy?

        yeah, and I'm concerned about losing Auba with the amount of big chances he's getting

    Some people clearly accidentally voted for the wrong Townsend goal 😆

  4. Berbinho's Forehead

    Find it strange that experienced managers have already sold Kane. Unless I've missed it, there's been no confirmation if he's out and for how long.

    1. Bobby_Baggio
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      you are right but its same ankle as previous injury so not great

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 13 days ago

      a lot of posters on here seem to have exact money for some sort of transfer that includes rashford

      1. Berbinho's Forehead
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        Fair enough. Going to be carnage if Kane is deemed fit for Fulham.

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 13 days ago

          agree. i dont have him so no dog in the fight

          1. CAPTAIN CRESPO
            • 2 Years
            4 months, 13 days ago

            I can’t imagine he will be fit for Fulham if it’s swelled. He can’t train until he’s had the scan

  11. The Curse of Falcao
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 13 days ago

    Current strikers: Auba Kane Jimenez

    1 FT , worth doing Auba > Rash tonight and then if news comes out that Kane is out do a -4 for Aguero?

    1. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Yes, Rashford with that price tags is a must imo

    2. Eddie`
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Why not just wait on Kane news?

      1. The Curse of Falcao
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        If Kane is fit for next GW i would do Auba > Rashford anyway but if i don;t do tonight i would miss rashford's rise and Auba will go down in price as well

    3. Dreaming of glory
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Dont think u need to other than to bank the rise. Id wait if i were you see how city go tomo & get kane news as well

  12. Dreaming of glory
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 13 days ago

    Move kane > rash now to be able to afford Jimenez > kun ?

    Priced out if rash goes up tonight

    1. Rhinos- AD, Melee Winners
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      looks awful if kane fit, none of us can know how bad the knock is

      1. Dreaming of glory
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        Yea bit of a gamble but jimenez & rashford doesnt look great as a forward pair either. May just hold off

  13. jernej93
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 13 days ago

    Was planing to do Auba and KDB -> Salah and Rashford ... but now with Kane injury, should I keep Auba and sell Kane instead?

    1. Dreaming of glory
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      U should keep auba and wait for kane news. Ur original move may still be a goer

    2. bitars
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Why did you have KDB in the first place?

      1. jernej93
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        Worst decision ... brought him in 2GWs ago ... meh

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      May as well keep KDB now

  14. Crazygopher

    Is alonso to bed for a hit worth it as alonso price looks like dropping by the next gw which would lose me 0.1 ?

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      0.1 drops aren't the end of the world

  15. Kiwivillan

    Can't find article. What much do we know about who definitely blanks when?

    1. Rhinos- AD, Melee Winners
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      arsenal dont play in gw22

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        Hehe

      2. Wizard of Özil
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        4 months, 13 days ago

        True that

    2. Hits from the Bong
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Hazard definitely blanks when you captain him.

  16. WrightnBright
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 13 days ago

    Currently looking like I have no keepers or forwards for next gwk!

    Guaita, Hamer. Kane, Kamara & Ings!

    Good job I have 2 ft but have a feeling a hit or 2 will be needed.

    Rash is rising tonight and will def be getting him in regardless but I’m prob best holding till further updates right?
    Or do Ings/Kamara > Rash & Richarlison > Punch/Camarasa now?!

    1. WrightnBright
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Oh and that’s not even solving keeper issues! Maybe Hamer > Button for a few weeks?

      1. Jayv807
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        not Button, you'll just have another keeper issue in a few weeks when Ryan is back

        1. WrightnBright
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 13 days ago

          Etheridge then I think.

    2. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      If Kane is injured, sort out your attackers first with your FTs. They should be your priority over your keepers as they score more points and you have more money invested in them.

      1. WrightnBright
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        True words. Think I’ll take the ride tonight and pray for good news tomorrow!

        1. WrightnBright
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 13 days ago

          *rise*!

    3. FPL_DON
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      what's the latest of guaita?

      1. WrightnBright
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        Like Kane, awaiting a scan/further tests Monday I think.
        Didn’t look too bad (I was there) but as we know sometimes the innocuous ones can be the most troublesome.

  17. Alli
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 13 days ago

    Etheridge - Hamer
    Robertson - Luiz - Digne - Doherty - W.Bissaka
    Salah - Pogba - Richarlison - Snodgrass - Stephens
    Aubameyang - Kane - Jiménez

    2 FT - 0.3 ITB

    A) Kane, Snodgrass > Kun, Pedro/Pereyra
    B) Kane, Snodgrass > Rashford, Sané (Both rising tonight but won't be priced out)
    C) Wait

    Can anyone who watched Chelsea's game comment on Alonso's performance?

    I'm wanting to hold as he loves to score against Arsenal then has Bournemouth and Huddersfield (Looking to ship him out then) but he isn't getting much points when Luiz and TAA are just destroying him from a points perspective.

    1. Darth_Newdar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      I'm selling him this week, almost certainly. I think Arsenal, Bournemouth and Man City will all score - so only one clean sheet in the next four fixtures. His attacking returns have also dried up. The transfer to Luiz or TAA seems obvious.

    2. Plymouth
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Just watched it in replay. He's still bombing forward. However, Chelsea struggling with offensive rhythm and to create chances. He ties up to much money for not playing in a that good team. Would go Luiz or no one.

    3. F_Ivanovic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Bad enough when people say that about attackers but a defender? Unlikely to get points there really. Bournmouth is OK, but a CS far from a given. Huddersfield is the only plum fixture.

      If you need the money I'd say get rid. If you don't, you can probably hold till after Huddersfield.

    4. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      I've kept faith pretty much all season but no attacking returns in 11 GWs at his price is awful, especially with highly owned alternatives like Digne, Trent and Luiz getting attacking returns for about 1m less. As for his performance, I don't recall him having any shots or crosses of note.

    5. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 13 days ago

      he created one decent chance but newcastle were a threat going fwd so he wasn’t going crazy.

      i own him too and if had ft’s / son to deal with would consider getting digne/luiz etc. but its alonso, he’s always a threat

      1. johnthepg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        I've got 2 FT so I'm considering either a Pool double up or Luiz as well.

        Thinking TAA only because I'm a LFC supporter.

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 13 days ago

          pool double up is essential i think. taa is insane value

  19. Ajax Hamsterdam

    I have pogba already
    Is doubling up with rashford a bit much? Thanks 🙂

      No it's good, just 3 weeks late.

      no not imo

      No chance! Perfect combo!

    5. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      4 months, 13 days ago

      No
      About a 1/3 of active players have that combo and I'd guess probably half by next GW...

    Wilson or Kane for Rashford?

    Bought Wilson for 6.0 and Kane for 12.5.

      Get a grav and go to sleep.

    2. Hulk Smash

      Wait on Kane news. And potentially Wilson to Chelsea news.

    Kane twisted ankle means 1 month out minimum?

    1. VeryHairyBabyParade

      Nobody knows

    2. Bobby

      4 months, 13 days ago

      if kane is out, is getting llorente in a ridiculous idea? He did score a hat-trick last week and theres nobody else that can come in and be the striker (now that Son has also gone)

      1. Hits from the Bong
        4 months, 13 days ago

        Ridiculous idea.

        1. Bobby

      2. VeryHairyBabyParade

        Just thinking about it is ridiculous. As was typing this response.

      3. Bookkeeper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        well he is out because he has a twisted ankle. Few weeks at the least.

        im a tranmere fan and can confirm we are not as good as premier league teams

    3. Jogsi
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Maybe but he has twisted it a few times before and generally the healing time is lessened for recurring ankle sprains, so hopefully it's a recurrence of an old injury and it will be less than a month.

      1. Hits from the Bong
        4 months, 13 days ago

        Is that correct? The more you damage an ankle the quicker it heals? It’s a mad world.

        1. VeryHairyBabyParade
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 13 days ago

          Eric Dier is kicking lumps out of the ankle as we speak. Kane should be fit by morning.

        2. Jogsi
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 13 days ago

          Well I'm not a physio but that is my understanding and certainly what I found from my own experience. Kane was out for 10 weeks the first time he did it and 4 weeks the second time.

      2. Royal5
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        It's the other way around.

  22. kuzser
    • 2 Years

    Have 4.9 to replace Lovren.
    Other defenders are Pereira Awb Digne schindler

    1) Get shaw for lovren tonight and wait for the news on Kane
    2) wait and potentially do lovren->taa and Kane->Rashford if injured

    1. F_Ivanovic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      2

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 13 days ago

      2 is an option for sure, wait it out

  23. liverpool01
    4 months, 13 days ago

    Allison
    Trippier,Bennett,Trent
    Sane,Richarlison,Salah,Martial,Camarasa
    Ings,Jiminez

    Subs
    Kane David Luiz,Peltier

    Who to switch Kane out for?

    1. liverpool01
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Kane>Aguero
      Sane>Hazard?

  24. Four Hit Wonder

    Which Spurs player benefits from Son departure and Kane possible injury? Who starts scoring and assisting?

    B. Lucas
    C. Eriksen
    D. Alli
    E. Lamela
    F. Llorente
    L. Moura

    1. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      B and L 😉

    2. liiusions
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      iirc Alli has done well when Kane is out

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 13 days ago

      not a spurs fan but alli looked good/advanced today

  25. NOSLEEPTILLBROOKLYN
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    4 months, 13 days ago

    Is Hazard and Martial > KDB and Pogba a good move?

    1. Nuno’s Dream
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 13 days ago

      KdB needs to start playing before getting him in. Prefer sane right now

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 13 days ago

      not really no

      1. NOSLEEPTILLBROOKLYN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        4 months, 13 days ago

        I'll be looking at bringing in Pogba at some stage and Hazard for me is too inconsistent to justify his price tag

  26. liiusions
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    All these injuries and transfers to China means Alonso will have to stay another week for me. Right decision to bench Alonso and play Doherty?

    1. F_Ivanovic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      yeah

    2. Rhinos- AD, Melee Winners
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      no

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 13 days ago

      in same position

      head says yes heart says no

    4. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      You never bench Alonso. If you own him it's because you think he is capable of attacking returns in just about any game (you wouldn't pay that price solely for clean sheets). Arsenal are a shambles defensively so if you don't think Alonso has a chance of attacking returns against them you should sell him.

      1. F_Ivanovic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        He's already said he wants to get rid of Alonso but can't this week due to other stuff. Doherty is clearly a better pick next week than Alonso. Similar chance of attacking returns but a much higher chance of a CS.

        1. Hulk Smash
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 13 days ago

          I know he wants rid but while you're stuck with a premium asset you might as well play him. We know Alonso is both capable and overdue so the longer he goes on blanking, statistically the more likely an attacking return becomes. Also he is highly owned and very few will bench him so if he scores it's going to be painful.

      Yeah

  27. Smudger’s Dirty Dozen

    To fund Ings to Rashford...best transfer in for Alonso?
    A TAA (double LFC defence)
    B Trippier

    Hazard or Sane to pogba?

    Want to do before price rise tonight

  29. white lightning
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 13 days ago

    Who would you prefer - Sterling or Sane. Recently Sane has probably been better but I read somewhere that Sterling looked very good last gw. Cheers.

  30. CAPTAIN CRESPO
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 13 days ago

    I might just do Kane > Rashford tonight. He looked unhappy at the end, confirmed swelling. He definitely misses Fulham imo and could be as long as 6 weeks if ligaments
