The Digne injury latest as Everton’s defence ride their luck

Although the Wolverhampton Wanderers v Manchester United match is still to come, Everton are the only Premier League club with two clean sheets to their name in 2019/20 at the time of writing.

As we will discuss, though, this latest shut-out wasn’t straightforward and the Toffees suffered an injury scare to their most-owned Fantasy Premier League defender in the second half.

Everton 1-0 Watford

  • Goal: Bernard (£6.5m)
  • Assist: Lucas Digne (£6.0m)
  • Bonus: Bernard – 3, Digne – 2, Yerry Mina (£5.5m) – 1

Marco Silva didn’t appear too concerned about Lucas Digne‘s (£6.0m) hamstring injury after the left-back limped out of Everton’s win over Watford after 73 minutes.

Digne banked an assist, a clean sheet and two bonus points for his owners but they will now be sweating on his availability for the trip to Aston Villa in Gameweek 3.

Speaking after the match, Silva said:

We hope it is nothing really special. He started to feel a bit more tired [in the muscle] and gave the sign to me to make the change.

Let’s see in the next few days but we hope it is nothing special.

The Liverpool Echo report that Digne will undergo a scan to determine the extent of the problem but Leighton Baines (£5.0m) will be on standby to deputise having only just returned to training himself.

Should Baines and Digne not recover, we may see a repeat of Saturday’s reshuffle: Seamus Coleman (£5.5m) moved over to left-back following Digne’s departure, with Mason Holgate (£4.5m) thrown on at right-back as new signing Djibril Sidibe (£5.5m) wasn’t yet ready to feature.

Digne’s availability may also be being carefully monitored by owners of Gylfi Sigurdsson (£8.0m), who have seen Digne upset the Iceland international’s monopoly at set plays over the last year.

Sigurdsson was barely involved from open play on Saturday, with only Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.0m) registering fewer touches among the 22 starters, but carved out two excellent opportunities for Richarlison (£8.0m) from indirect free-kick situations, underlining how important dead-ball duties are to the Icelander.

Richarlison headed both of those chances over and it was another below-par display from the Brazilian, who was hooked on the hour-mark.

Calvert-Lewin again offered little from an offensive perspective and there was an element of fortune about Everton’s winner, with Bernard (£6.5m) collecting a long ball from Digne before firing a deflected effort beyond Ben Foster (£5.0m).

Having scored just three goals in seven pre-season outings, the Merseyside club have only one goal to their name in 2019/20 and there has been little incentive to invest in the Toffees’ attacking assets so far this campaign.

Moise Kean (£7.0m) may be the man Silva’s side have been crying out for, however.

The summer signing looked sharp in an 18-minute showing against the Hornets, managing to do what Calvert-Lewin hadn’t and actually get a shot away on goal.

The former Juventus man fired narrowly wide in stoppage time and it will be interesting to see how quickly his ascent to the first team will come from a Fantasy perspective, given how favourable Everton’s fixtures are in the coming weeks and months.

One thing that perhaps needs addressing is Calvert-Lewin’s work rate in attack and how he fits into Silva’s tactic of defending from the front.

Speaking after this latest clean sheet, Jordan Pickford (£5.0m) said:

It’s a full team effort, really, from the front, whoever starts up top. All the way through, we work hard in training all week. We’re resilient.

Silva added:

I like that the team is solid like we are, we’re not a defensive team at all. We play using a full pitch, and we like to press high.

We have to put quality in our work. The players have to understand the idea and philosophy, and we have to make them believe this is the way we can be stronger as a team.

Whether Kean can afford his side the same protection from the lone striker’s role remains to be seen and is something to monitor for those of us who own an Everton defender.

Saturday’s shut-out owned a bit to luck, it has to be said.

While Everton largely held Watford at bay despite the visitors bossing possession, the Hornets ought to have scored at least once: Craig Dawson (£5.0m) hit the bar from close range, Troy Deeney (£6.4m) fired into the face of Pickford when clean through and Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.9m) couldn’t steer in a deflected shot with the goal gaping.

Roberto Pereyra (£6.4m), back on the left flank in this match, also nodded over when well positioned.

How much Everton will miss Idrissa Gueye is also worth mentioning, with a lot being asked of Jean-Philippe Gbamin (£5.0m) as his replacement.

Watford will have been heartened by Saturday’s display if not the result, with the Toffees not really carving out any clear chances from open play and the Hornets looking more of a threat going forward than they had in Gameweek 1.

While some of his teammates still struggled to hit form, Gerard Deulofeu (£6.4m) was much better playing alongside Deeney up top than he had been in an illness-affected 45-minute showing on the left flank against Brighton and was Watford’s creative spark at Goodison – although failed to register a shot himself.

Danny Welbeck (£6.0m) came off the bench late on, meanwhile, to record his first minutes in a Watford shirt.

Reflecting on the game, Gracia said:

I think today we had a good performance. We were close to getting a better result. I think we deserved a better result.

We had some clear chances, some moments when we dominated the game. We had more possession and the same shots on target, more corners than them. But we didn’t score and we need to try to be better next time.

They scored from a long ball and we were a bit unlucky because our defender touched the shot a little bit.

After, we hit the crossbar, had a clear chance with Troy. I believed until the end.

In the second half, we started dominating and I think we had three corner kicks in the first three minutes. We were playing in the opposition’s half, but you have to score if you want to get points.

Everton season ticket holder @FFEyeTest did what his Twitter handle suggests and gave us his thoughts on Saturday’s game, saying:

Everton started brightly, with the full-backs playing a key role. Digne, in particular, set up the only goal of the game on 11 mins. Picking up the ball in his own half, he played a fantastic long ball to Bernard, who beat his man in the box and scored at the near post (with the help of a small deflection).

Watford’s main chance of the half came from a Holebas corner, a header from Dawson off the bar. The Hornets were a threat in the air all game. Mina nearly gave away a penalty just before half-time but VAR denied it.

Watford started brilliantly in the second period and had the best chance of the half on 57 mins. Richarlison gave the ball away and Deulofeu carried the ball to the edge of the box before playing a fantastic through ball to Deeney, who shot straight at Pickford – he should have scored.

As Moise Kean came on for his home debut, Digne went down off the ball. He went off for Holgate straight away but was able to walk off on his own accord. One to keep an eye on this week.

As Watford pressed for an equaliser at the end, Everton had a couple of chances on the counter with Kean, who looks sharp.

Watford will feel disappointed not to come away with a point, but Everton’s defence ground out a clean sheet yet again – a big three points for the Toffees.

Everton top performers = Bernard/Coleman
Watford top performers = Doucoure/Deulofeu

Everton XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Coleman, Keane, Mina, Digne (Holgate 73); Gomes, Gbamin; Richarlison (Walcott 63′), Sigurdsson, Bernard; Calvert-Lewin (Kean 72′).

Watford XI (4-4-2): Foster; Femenia, Dawson, Cathcart, Holebas; Pereyra, Doucoure, Capoue (Gray 83′), Hughes (Welbeck 67′); Deulofeu (Cleverley 78′), Deeney.

      Thoughts on this WC draft:

      Adrian (4.0)
      Laporte Digne AWB Diop (Lundstram)
      Sterling Mane KDB Son Trossard
      Pukki (Wickham Greenwood)

      0.9itb. How can I upgrade?

      Can also do:
      Son Greenwood Laporte Adrian ---> Rashford Cantwell VVD Ederson + 0.3itb

      Thoughts on Salah, Siggy & Wilson to KDB, Martial & Kane?

      Not sure I have it in me to ditch Salah.
      Might just do Wilson & Hayden to Greenwood & Martial.

      1. Hy liverpool
        • 6 Years

        I liked it but mot sure about losing salah tbh

        • 1 Year
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Would that leave you without Liverpool attack? Newcastle isn't the far over the horizon and surely you'd want either Mane or Mo for that.

        1. Eytexi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 18 days ago

          Yep, that's what's putting me off.

          1. Rasping Drive
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            7 months, 18 days ago

            Yes, but you have Kane (c) at home to Palace to counter that.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              7 months, 18 days ago

              Good point, well made. You reckon it's worth the risk then?

                • 10 Years
                7 months, 18 days ago

                I would say it is.

              Or Sterling away to Norwich

        I think salah has been quite wide and not looked on top of his game, neither have Liverpool full stop. Spurs fixtures are too good to ignore and Man City have looked very good going forward. Can’t ignore KDB in his form. Interested to see how martial does tonight, I hold so rate but not convinced he’s a reliable no.9 yet.

        1. Eytexi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 18 days ago

          Salah has officially been playing as a winger but has been the most central of Liverpool's three attackers (according to members stats), but agree he hasn't looked particularly threatening. I don't see United going mad vs. Wolves but I do vs. Palace so providing Martial looks sharp tonight, I think I want him regardless of returns.

      Been really busy at work lately. Used my 2ft last night and hadn’t realised Digne was injured. Hopefully not for long!

        Apparently due a scan in the coming days

      3. Ole Trafford
        • 7 Years

        Excellent sounds like there is a chance he will make next gw so.

          No, no other pool defence. I’m just not happy with my team have 2 frees and not sure what to do

          1. In a Rush
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 18 days ago

            Does this make it a no go do we think? The fact I have no other pool defender.

    • OBAMA
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 18 days ago

      Do I save the transfer or do I take a hit to get in KDB?

      Robbo/Trent -> Mings
      Pulisic -> KDB

      A) Don't do anything
      B) Pull the -4 trigger

      1. OBAMA

        Defender suggestions other than Mings are more than welcome 🙂

          I will watch the game first but was asking for a general opinion about vardy siggy problem.

      3. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 18 days ago

        Don't think SU is Vardy's type of match - he won't get much space.

        I'd go C. McGinn looks quite tasty to me - even if he's a bit out of fashion this week. The Kane captaincy could be gold.

        B could also be tempting if they look good tonight.

        1. Hy liverpool

            • 4 Years
            7 months, 18 days ago

            I think Mane outscores Kane

            Jota v Martial is a bit harder, but itl be very close, Jota finished the season in wonderful form and has looked good pre season and in europa league. Game vs leicester was a bit of a dud

            1. SADIO SANÉ
              • 4 Years
              7 months, 18 days ago

              think I agree with you tbh, Kane (c) clouds things slightly this week though ... see how they both look tonight - cheers for views

        2. FOO FIGHTER
            7 months, 18 days ago

            I think Salah may be a bit angry blanking plus seeing some transferring him out and then take his frustrations out on Arsenal.

            Anyone who has 2 Liverpool Defenders, quit a lot of people I assume....
            Are you ready to drop one?

            I have VVD & Robbo, Looking to drop VVD.
            You?

              I have TAA & VVD. If I was wildcarding I'd ditch one, but I have so much money invested elsewhere in players I don't need that selling would be a waste of a transfer for me. I'll end up wanting them back anyway most likely.

              i would, but i dont need the cash yet, so i will keep them both for Burnley/Newcaslte in 4/5 and reassess

              nope. we're talking about players whose points per match per million (relative to new prices) has been astronomical. even with fairly significant long term regression, they are still comfortably among the very best value picks in the game, and i don't see competing options whose value is sufficiently great to warrant dropping them

                  Trossard. Should have had 2 goals over the weekend 1 ruled out by a minute VAR decision. Was lights out for Genk last year and looks even better this year

                  Salah - De bruyne - Pepe - mcginn - perez

                  Auba - King

                  Really want sterling and Pepe is burning a hole in muy team, tempted to wc to get sterling in..

                    Prefer this one - Kane could be a great captaincy option this GW

                      Cheers although I have sterling who is also a great captain candidate and I do worry about not having pool defence. Can’t make my mind up!

                  Already made my transfers for the week (couldn't resist pukki and KDB).
                  Which leaves me with perez and moura- what's chances of both of these getting a game next week? Worth an 8 point hit to get rid of both for Son and Dendonker? Any price changes will rule it out

                    I think both will start.
                    why would he not start perez
                    why would moura not start having been "rested" and then coming on an scoring....

                      7 months, 18 days ago

                      because Son is back

                      • 2 Years
                      7 months, 18 days ago

                      and Perez might not start because he hasn't really done anything positive in the 2 games he played so far, he is clearly struggling in the position Robson plays him.

                        Maybe they will change their current formation?!? Too much asked probably 🙁

                          As a Perez owner I'd hope so, especially as they haven't been any good going forward until the last half an hour of the Chelsea game, but I doubt it for now.

                  It looks like Kane is missing in the Captain's poll. I assume he'd probably be the most captained player this GW, but now that everyone has a day, or so, head start, that may be a different story

                      You know, you can finish fpl with good OR or even win without having Salah.

                      I can speak only for myself but I wildcarded this week and sold him, simply because not gonna captain him in next 10gw or so.
                      I'm not stupid, I know he's going to score and assist but so will my players who don't cost 12,5m.
                      I know it's a small sample but if I start without Salah I would (C) Sterling in gw1 and probably Pukki in gw2 and would be much much better than my 43k OR right now.

                    Would you do Wilson, Fraser > KDB, 5.8m (who tho?) 2FTs

                    I'm not convinced that Salah will drop in price after one blank game.
                    A lot of casuals will own him. They are not as proactive in the transfer market as the people who visit this site.

                      It's the 'casuals' who are most likely to knee jerk to the latest point scorer.
