How Zouma’s future could impact Everton defensive potential

Everton’s defensive potential in 2019/20 could depend on some external factors.

The Toffees have already been targetted by Fantasy Premier League managers a team to invest in for Gameweek 1.

That’s because they top the Season Ticker for the first six matches of the new campaign.

At the time of writing, Lucas Digne (£6.0m) is sat in 28% of teams, signifying the interest in Everton’s defence for the start of the season.

He was a key part of helping his side keep eight clean sheets in the last 11 matches of 2018/19.

But Digne was not the only important member of the back-four that produced such an impressive achievement.

Alongside the Frenchman was Chelsea centre-back Kurt Zouma, who spent the 2018/19 campaign on loan at Goodison Park.

As things stand, the Frenchman is back at his parent club and was involved in Chelsea’s first pre-season friendly.

With Zouma’s future currently up in the air, there may be some who are cooling their interest in Everton defensive assets.

So the aim of this article is to assess his contribution to the Toffees defence last season so we know whether or not a potential absence from the team at the start of 2019/20 would reduce the clean sheet potential of Digne, Jordan Pickford (£5.5m), Seamus Coleman (£5.5m) and the like.

    Good morning guys

    No love for Zaha here?

      Fixtures are meh. Better options at that price point for start of the season IMO

    2. palace ash

      Agreed. Don't think he'll have a great start. Late back from AFCoN.

      Possibly unlikely to start the season with speculation of a move. Until more is known I can't see him establishing himself as a credible option in the community.

    4. The 5% Team

      uncertainty, AFCON, not greatest fixtures, only did well with Batsman as striker...so no love from me

  2. Double Treble

    Lastest draft.. How about this

    Ryan
    TAA Robbo Digne Zinc
    Salah Sterling Siggy Fraser
    King Murray

    Button, Wickham, Dedoncker, Kelly

    0.5 ITB...

    1. Fordy40
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Downgrade Murray to another 4.5 striker, use the 1.5 and the 0.5 in your bank to upgrade Kelly to someone like Luiz or Azpilicueta, either will get you more points than Murray like last season. £6m on a defender will get you more points than a £6m striker I think

      1. Hedge
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Then you're left with one striker and down to 10men with a surprise benching or late injury.

        1. The 5% Team
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          indeed, a risky formation...although value-wise probably the best

        2. Fordy40
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Who needs a 2nd striker if you can spend 6m on a defender who will play every week and who will get you more points than said striker ?!

    2. Aurora Borealis?
      • 8 Years

      Great team. Very similar to mine, only difference is robbo to VVD and zinc to Laporte. Could change to this thou once I’m more sure Vinc is nailed

      1. Aurora Borealis?

        *zinc

    3. Birds of Prey

      King and Murray rotate nice but any inuries or rested players, and you got probs.
      First I'd spend that.5 on a rotating keeper w/Ryan. Gotta downgrade Steling or Salah( rest risk).
      IMO GL

    4. OFord

        Am I missing something here or are people being very optimistic about zinchenko's starting potential?

    5. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Gareth Bale to Spurs would certainly make some rip up their drafts.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        He'd be a silly price and send Son to the bench. Hope it doesn't happen.

      2. The 5% Team
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 4 days ago

        would like it from FPL point of view...same if Coutinho joined Liverpool. More options/good differentials 🙂

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          I don't see it that way. With Coutinho, Klopp did a fantastic job seamlessly losing him by changing formation. Now he's got Mane/Firmino/Salah firing, where does Coutinho fit in? For Mane? Deeper in midfield - that not his best position. No, it would screw up the team, like Neymar going back to Barcelona.

          1. The 5% Team
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 4 days ago

            mainly agree with this, that's why I said from an FPL point of view

          2. BoleynWin
            • 2 Years

            City have a front three Sane/Sergio/Sterling & coped with slotting DSilva begins quite nicely, no reason Pool wouldn’t achieve something similar. I think he would be a fantastic addition to their squad, Fabinho/Henderson sitting deep infront of the back four & Coutinho pushing forward could really punish teams. The minutes Salah & Mané racked up last season points to them needing some more options too, especially as both have had busy Summers with Afcon

            1. BoleynWin
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 4 days ago

              DSilva behind*

            2. Andy_Social

              • 7 Years
              1 month, 4 days ago

              The way you've set up there, I can see Coutinho and Firmino running into each other. It would require a radical altering of tactics that work brilliantly and little time to do it in.

            3. Mreidfelt
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              1 month, 4 days ago

              I ended up in the 10000 last season. I used 2 heavy hitters. This season I plan for a 5 back line. TAA, Robo, Vvd, Digne and Maguire...only 1 big hitter and rest mid hitters...am I losing the plot or trying to win?

      3. noquarternt
        • 4 Years

        Silly price. Wonder what he'd be though.

    6. palace ash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Where will Delph start next season? Regular starter? What will Everton's midfield look like?

      1. Siggy Azalea
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Just asked the same question. Think he'll start, but dont know what position.

      2. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        On the bench or in the treatment room.
        He's back up for Gueye, so it depends on whether the latter stays or not.

        1. palace ash
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Doesn't Gueye play central? Thought Delph played out wide.

        2. Vobinho In Wengerland
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          I reckon he's PSG bound as Everton had three already in Gomes, Gueye and Schneiderlin, so I'd deem Delph a luxury if Gueye was to stay. And I reckon Everton would spend their money elsewhere if they didn't need a midfielder.

          1. BoleynWin
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Agree with this, can see the PSG money being redeployed on a striker. They can’t be splashing cash around like they have been & start the season with DCL & Tosun, would be criminal.

      3. Gregor
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Upgrade on Schneiderlin, surely.

    7. Siggy Azalea
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      How will Delph be used at Everton? Defender or Midfielder? As a 5.5 defender is he worth a punt?

      1. palace ash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Good question

      2. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Ask yourself, will he score more than Coleman?
        Then consider the answer: no.

      3. aapoman
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        No. Coleman is a better option even if Delph would play in the midfield.

      4. Legomané
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Nah, Pickford Coleman and Digne all better options.

      5. Gregor
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Upgrade on Schneiderlin, surely.

    8. ChelseaBlues223
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Pickford (Button)
      TAA, VVD, Walker (Kelly, Reid)
      Salah, Fraser, Siggy, Bilva, Zaha
      Vardy , Deulofeu (Wickham)

      What do you say?

      1. aapoman
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Bench is rubbish. Bilva is not a good FPL option.

        1. ChelseaBlues223
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          I wanted him because I don't have any City atrackers

          1. aapoman
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            He most likely won't get high attacking returns though

    9. palace ash

      Latest:

      Ryan, Button
      TAA, VdV, Coleman, Zinchenko, Dunk
      Salah, KdB, Siggy, Bilva, Dendonker,
      Vardy, King, Wickham

      Thoughts?

      1. aapoman
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Bilva to Tielemans/Perez, VVD to Robertson, Zinchenko to Laporte

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          I prefer his team as it is

          1. aapoman
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Well Bilva is not a real FPL option and Zinchenko isn't nailed...

            1. Pia06rc
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 4 days ago

              Do you think if you keep saying Bilva isn't a real FPL option it will eventually become fact? He's scored consistent points and plays for the best team in the league. He also outscored Perez who you recommend changing him to. Season before last he scored 112 points from c.1500 minutes.

              1. onceuponatyne
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                1 month, 4 days ago

                This. Not only that, Pep loves him, he gets at least as many minutes as other premium City options, he plays offensively, he's low priced (considering the factors outlined) and he's got older players in his position (he'll likely play more minutes). He's in my side.

              2. Marmalade Forest
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 4 days ago

                I think his idea is at the start of the year it is better to have a nailed on talisman than a rotation risk. If and when Bilva is about to/starts to become a clear good value for money option (due to clear form, or injuries and bans to other players) get on him then.

                In a six game period I would think the thinking is Perez is more likely to go 325335 and Bilva go 101786.

                The “trick” is to get it right

                1. Pia06rc
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 4 days ago

                  He recommended switching him to Perez, so I don't think his point was based around being a "nailed on talisman". No one even knows if or where he'll start yet.

      2. scubasmithy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Personally I'd sacrifice vardy for DCL/Deufo and upgrade KDB to Sterling but I do like the balance of your current squad

    10. Ciarant20
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Hey guys how my team looking? Will change A Smith to a starter if he doesn’t get on

        Ederson
        VVD Digne TAA Kelly
        Mane Sterling Richarlison Pereyra
        Vardy King

        Button, A Smith, Dendoncker, Wickham

        1. The 5% Team
          • 1 Year

          Smith and Kelly obvious points of weakness

          like the Richa and Pereyra picks

        2. Taking the Mkhitaryan
          • 2 Years

          Kelly unlikely to keep playing so you will be struggling for numbers

      • Alexanderjg23
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Almiron, Willian, Gross or McNeil - best draft option?

        1. Luizdouzi
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Groß/Willian

        2. higgi1989
          • 7 Years

          Thoughts on this team folks? Going for 4 heavy hitters, & will either rotate the 3rd midfielder each week or start Dunk if he moves to Leicester

          Ryan
          TAA Coleman Trippier A.Smith
          Sterling Salah Stephens
          Vardy King Kane

          Stekelenburg, Dunk, Dendoncker, Hayden

          1. aapoman

              Yeah, well that is true. But I see it as being a good problem to have i.e. not having all the eggs in one basket

        3. ChelseaBlues223
          • 1 Year

          A Pickford, Zaha (3-5-2)

                Anybody else Ake> Dunk ?

                1. BIGJOE
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  1 month, 4 days ago

                  Ake is actually good value at 5 million.

                  1. Birds of Prey
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years
                    1 month, 4 days ago

                    Dunk is 4.5 and leicester has a better defense and keeper.

                2. BoleynWin
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 4 days ago

                  If Dunk ends up at Leicester then that’s a no brainer for me, Ake has great ability to score attacking returns but you want some clean sheets at that 5mil price bracket & I just don’t see Bournemouth keeping that many this season, they are in need of a proper defensive mid to balance things out slightly IMO

                I don't have any City attackers though. What do you say?

                  Why Dunk ?
                  Playing in a team which won't defend . Can't see many clean sheets. Also downgrade Wickham to a 4.5 and Jimenez to a 6.5 and get a decent 4th defender
                  Like the rest of it though.

                    probably assuming Dunk is elsewhere by the start of the season.

                    Rumours of dunk to leicester for 45m, also wickham is 4.5m

                      Exactly. Leicester won't/can't defend .

                Howdy folks. I think it all comes down to this:
                A) De Bruyne; Vardy; Robbo
                B) Sterling; Giroud; VvD

                  Do you think that one of Stones or Zinichenko will be nailed ?

                    No, but for 5.5, 80% starts would still be a good return.

                    I think that LB spot is Zinchenkos to lose at the start of the season. Mendys nowhere to be seen due to injuries & Ang seems more of a back up.
                    Zinchenkos in my team currently & cant see a better way into the City defence unless you want to spend the extra 0.5m & bring in Ederson

                  Surprised because of the lack of Duffy @ 5m in teams.

                  -Most goals of all def's
                  -2nd most SoT of all def's
                  -2nd most GA's inside the box
                  -highest shot accuracy of all def's scoring more than 4 goals

                    The scars of the DGW34 1 pointer are still raw.

                      He and Dunk scored 8 pts each over the 2 fixtures did they not?

                        Sorry maybe you are right. But Brighton had a DGW 33 as well that lots of people captained him in where they lost 5-0 at home to Bournemouth and 2-0 at home to Cardiff.

                          Maybe, but (c) a Bri def is well...fuc..well stupid.

                        Not the DGW everyone capped Duffy.

                        This was the one after that.

                          Oh well, I can only recall him and Dunk scoring 8 pts each in my BB in some sort of DGW.

                          😎

                    Surprised with the amount of Ryan picks. Brighton must be relegation favourites this season

                  So ... Fabian Delph.

                  A 5.5 OOP Everton defender -> midfielder. Seems decent.

                  Will he be nailed on?

                  1. Miguel Sanchez
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 4 days ago

                    Could well be but think he is a waste of an Everton spot. Coleman should get more points at the same price.

                  2. Kiwivillan
                    • 5 Years
                    1 month, 4 days ago

                    I think he's squad filler. Also gets injured a lot

                    1. KujaliaFC
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 7 Years
                      1 month, 4 days ago

                      By squad filler, you think he won't start regularly?

                      Surely his move to Everton was motivated by the potential for more starts?

                      1. Kiwivillan
                        • 5 Years
                        1 month, 4 days ago

                        If he's intended as first XI I hope for Everton's sake they have decent backup

                        1. KujaliaFC
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          1 month, 4 days ago

                          Is he really as bad as you say?

                          He was decent at Villa as far as I can remember and is a full England international.

                            Go to transfermarkt and look at stats last 4 seasons and check out amount of times injured. That's just at City

                  Given last season is it reasonable to expect Origi to start for a while?
                  5.5 is a sweet $ if that's how it goes down.

                    Seen quite a few post here that they are planning on punting him for the first few gameweeks then assessing with an early W/C. Could be a good shout with Firmino having a busy summer schedule & the end of season run/champs league heroics... not quite convincing me yet though

                    Deulo to ?

                    Also pre-season could throw up some nice surprises.
                    KDB could come in too.

                    all of last season's Chelsea loanies not yet added...Zouma, Mount, Kenedy etc

                    It’s so annoying. I’m not sure there will be a nailed Chelsea striker anyhow, will completely depend on the system which lampard loves to change. 1 up front = Giroud. Two up front = Abe + Bats

                      I might just settle for Luiz or Azpi. Nice starting fixtures.

                        Not the worst idea. Zappa could emerge as an even better option of Azpi gets put at CB for only 4.5. Again this would probably be a pure system thing. Wouldn’t mind seeing Luiz shifted back up into midfield again

                    Why is Arnie still in the game?

                      yes ...why?

                      The fact you know he shouldn’t be means that it won’t effect you, think of those poor auto-select fools that picked a team last week to leave it for the season....

                  Pope
                  VVD - Digne - Zinchenko (Balbuena - Kelly)
                  Salah - KdB - Siggy - Perez (Hayden)
                  Kane - King - Deulofeu

                  Keeping an eye on Giroud/CHE Forward cos there’s decent potential there for the price.
