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.

      1. TerryVenables

        Was going Hazard until his performance this week. Can afford Sterling just about.

      Both can.

        • 1 Year
        9 months, 9 days ago

        i am interested in bringing in martial for son, but anticipate lukaku returning, with rashford moving left. i think martial is far superior to lingard so perhaps all 3 playing is possible. i should probably wait to see but really unsure what to do with son.

      • 2 Years

      Rashford played mostly on the right side yesterday, and they switch positions. No reason to worry about Rashfords gametime. Every action OGS have done since coming in points to that.The only worry is his injury record

  7. Ynwalfc

    Anyone tempted with Kane to Firmino if Kane is out for a couple of weeks?

    1. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 9 days ago

      Certainly not

    2. Ynwalfc

      Kun?

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 9 days ago

      it's not that firmino is necessarily a bad option, but owning salah and 2 liverpool defenders seems to me to be significantly better

      1. Ynwalfc
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 9 days ago

        Thanks, I have Salah and TAA. Maybe Kun will be a better option with Huddersfield and Newcastle next

      Firmino got me a lot of points in Jan a few years ago. Based on this he may be worth considering.

      • 1 Year
      9 months, 9 days ago

      keep, i agree but i think he is playing well generally, he was unlucky vs southampton in particular, and is by no means destined to remain as false 9

      As the phrase implies "false"
      Hazard will keep doing poorly until I sell him.
      I heard on this site, he deserved a lot more this week.

    3. Hot Toddy

      9 months, 9 days ago

      I'm keeping

    5. Boberella
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 9 days ago

      I'm keeping for the season barring injury. He gets points and is generally involved in most of Chelsea's goals.
      I think if you've got LIV defence and attack along with some city attack, he's worth keeping and will tick along with the odd double digit.

    Been having dismal weeks, listening to people I should not and when doing surgery to my team, taking punts to try and avoid losing ground.
    I have picked up one thing. Last week mega poor and big red arrow. This week 81 points and Trippier to TAA with the only change. 4mil lat week 5k this week. If ever there is a lesson in patience I must note!

      Next gw can upgrade snoddy & downgrade Alonso if needed.

      1. Amey

        IF Kane is injured obviously

        Oops too expensive. I'm gonna look at Alli, but I'm not sure yet.

    Any early thoughts DZers?

    Fabs (3.9)
    Doherty - Digne - TAA
    Salah - Hazard - Deulefeu - Pogba - Anderson
    Kane* - Barnes
    (Luiz, AWB, Kamara)

    2 FT 0.0 ITB

    Thinking

    1) Kamara + Anderson > Rashford + Puncheon
    2) Kane + Anderson > Rashford + Sterling
    3) Something else

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 9 days ago

      1 looking good.
      Kane injury though. If he is fit 1 otherwise plathora of choices for you.
      Well done saving ft.

    2. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 9 days ago

      Deulofeu is a problem

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 9 days ago

        How so?

        1. Hot Toddy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 9 days ago

          Woeful returns and too expensive for a fifth mid.

          1. Kiwivillan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            9 months, 9 days ago

            Last 6 back regular minutes 33pts Rich last 6 18pts 😆

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              9 months, 9 days ago

              Let Richa breath mate 😀
              He is not even in discussion 😀

            2. Hot Toddy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              9 months, 9 days ago

              Yet is still 44pts short of Richarlison's total. A couple of decent returns doesn't mask being utter sh!te for years.

              1. Kiwivillan
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                9 months, 9 days ago

                Deulofeu was playing limited minutes back and forth from injury. Basing it since back. What Rich excuse?

                1. Hot Toddy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  9 months, 9 days ago

                  Out of form obviously.

    3. Kiwivillan

      Anderson vs Bournemouth.

    4. waldo666
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 9 days ago

      Would Kane and Deulofeu to Rashford and Sane work?

  19. Crazygopher
    9 months, 9 days ago

    BENCH Dige or alonso ?

      1. Kiwivillan

    2. Boberella

    If Gomez is back would it make sense to do:

    Richarlison-Ings-Diop to
    4.4mid-Rash-Gomez
    for - 4?

    1. 007 [RoboKlopp]

      No

  21. Boberella
    • 2 Years

    Morning all,

    Any advice here for next GW?
    Thinking Auba to Aguero (if no injuries tonight) would be the only worthwhile move?

    Fab
    Digne TAA Doherty
    Salah (c) Haz Pogba Rich Fanderson

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Depends on result tomo. Some player may become new essential

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 9 days ago

      Nice team.
      Kun can be great option.

      1. Boberella
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 9 days ago

        Thanks mate. Definitely reckon if Kun goes well tonight he'll be a popular transfer, particularly with Kane potential injury too.

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 9 days ago

          Yeah

    51 with Doherty to play. 5 k OR drop so far.

      Yes. The Gods shall smite you. Look out

    2. Hot Toddy

      Reaching 52 might be too much to ask

        Dammit

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year

      I'd be happy to get away with 51 after tonight's match if I were you.
      Defender playing City is horrible feeling.

      I have Doherty, Patricio and Jimi on the bench.

      1. Amey

        Pack of wolves 😮

      2. Differential (c)
        • 4 Years

        Nope, but might do Son->Sane/KdB after tonight.

    Any other potential blanks on GW27 other than City - Everton?

    1. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 9 days ago

      Spurs / Chelsea

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 9 days ago

      Spurs or chelsea too.

  24. HurriKane
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 9 days ago

    Kane --> Aguero looks tempting. Thoughts?

    1. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 9 days ago

      Good move.

    2. Boberella
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 9 days ago

      Yes.
      If all is well with Kun tonight (no injuries etc) I'd do it.
      Thinking of doing the same but for Auba. Will monitor tonight.

  25. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 9 days ago

    Already used my FT for Salah, Kane to Kun would have to be for a hit if I do it.. still worth it?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 9 days ago

      Would you do it for free? Pretend Salah was the hit.

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 9 days ago

        That's a good way to look at it, I would definitely do that!

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          9 months, 9 days ago

          I was joking about the hit. Depends on 1st sub and if you trust Aguero.

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 9 days ago

      If Kane out for more than 1 get yes IMO.
      Similar story here though. Got rid of Arnie for rash as would have been out of cash for transfer.
      Kane getting back fit would be nice.

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 9 days ago

        Well I've absolutely destroyed my bench to get Salah (have AWB Brooks Puncheon and Success lol) so can't afford for Kane to not play, will just go ahead with it imo

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 9 days ago

          Just wait for confirmation. Kun is infamous too for injuries so wait till tomorrow.

        2. JustPark
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 9 days ago

          Apart from Success, that is not a bad bench.

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year

      Nobody knows it tbh. I think manager said that he has swelling on the ankle will see.

      how?

    2. Sir Edo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 9 days ago

      With Son and probably also Kane out, Chelsea can turn this around.
      Why would it be interesting by the way?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights

        1. Sir Edo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          9 months, 9 days ago

          You mean Chelsea players ownership are bigger? If yes, I absolutely agree.

      I would be more concerned about Kane's injury and your gk situation

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Agree. Kamara not helping matters

        You may have right 😉
        My GK-situation sucks, thought I was smart when I did Patricio -> Guaita this GW

          Would've been ok if Button had more than 2-3 games left

      Kane(if out) + a mid, simple

      Quite simply Kane to Rashford and Anderson to Pogba but agree that you may want to sort your GKing situation sooner rather than later.

      More news for you is key I believe.

        Thanks mate!
        Yoo, more news is key so I will be patient 🙂
        Yup, would like to sort of the GK-situation, but boring transfers 😉

          Agree that there's rarely any fun to be had with GKing transfers!

          Arsenal's form has dropped off a cliff. But I guess Auba is still a good option, they can still score goals (apart from on Saturday obviously)
