Why has Everton’s attack been so underwhelming so far this season?

Everton’s popular attacking assets have underwhelmed Fantasy Premier League managers so far this season.

After two matches, they have scored just once, only Crystal Palace finding the net fewer times than the Toffees at this stage.

Perhaps we should not be too surprised to see Marco Silva’s men struggle in front of goal at this stage.

During their pre-season campaign, they scored just three goals in seven matches, with Richarlison (£8.0m) the only key figure missing for most of it.

One was registered against Kenyan side Kariobangi Sharks, while Monaco and Mainz were the only other teams to concede against Everton.

The Toffees drew blanks in four of their summer friendlies, against FC Sion, Wigan Athletic, Sevilla and Werder Bremen.

Of those who found the back of the net, Joe Williams and Lewis Gibson are not first-team regulars, the former now a permanent Wigan player, while Seamus Coleman (£5.5m) is the only summer goal-scorer to have played in either Premier League match so far this season.

Accordingly, ahead of a Gameweek 3 trip to Aston Villa, Fantasy managers might be looking to move on their Everton attackers.

We have assessed the underlying statistics from their first two matches of the campaign to find out if the Toffees have simply been unlucky not to score more often, or if there are some tangible reasons for concern.

    please opine...
    A. Kane, Martial, Ndombele
    B. Rashford, Mane, Son

    Note I probably have higher expectations of Ndombele than average.

        Pretty sure it’s an echo

      B costs way more tho

    11. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      B is 5m more than A 😆

      1. Kim Jong Kün
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 18 days ago

        4.8, you're right. But there are insignificant changes to facilitate this and I had a lot of money from Salah to KDB already. But yeah, the price kinda tells the story.

  2. Scout
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 18 days ago

    pope
    VVD, Robbo, digne, ake
    salah sterling perez moura
    king vardy

    1. Ambrosiana Inter
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      Loads
      Pérez dropping in price tonight,vardy mmmm, moura also a question mark...
      Are can be shipped for a 4.5 Kelly is good and rising in price, so u have more money to upgrade moura or vardy

      1. Ambrosiana Inter
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 18 days ago

        Pérez to lanzini

        1. Scout
          • 2 Years
          10 months, 18 days ago

          kelly is 4.0m

          moura to martial and ake to dunk? what do you think of that? or swap moura to lamela?

        2. Scout
          • 2 Years
          10 months, 18 days ago

          or perez out for mount?

  3. GuillermoDickero
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 18 days ago

    Is this Soyuncu guy present at any of their set pieces? Does he look capable of nodding in a corner or free kick?

    1. LarryDuff
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      He's 4.5 that's all that matters

      1. GuillermoDickero
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 18 days ago

        It was more to do with a comparison of Dunk who we know is capable of nodding in goals in both his own and his opponents net

    2. CostaCoffee
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      Yep

  4. Balls of Steel
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 18 days ago

    Best Fraser replacement under 7.4m before another price drop tonight ?

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      Lanzini as a differential

    2. SAY MY NAME
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      trossard or mcginn (maybe mount) and keep the spare cash for next week

    3. Balls of Steel
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      Thanks guys

    4. Dthinger
      • 3 Years

      If you had him before the drop I think I'd keep him

  5. Tsparkes10
    • 1 Year

    Excited for tomorrow. Got Wesley and Digne so hopefully a Digne assist and Wesley brace

    1. FortunesAlwaysHiding
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      Dronfield Hammer here mate. What's happening with McBurnie? I'm looking at options for Wesley in a draft league!

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 18 days ago

        Slowly easing into it. Scored against man u midweek in a behind doors game. Could well start tbh

        1. FortunesAlwaysHiding
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 18 days ago

          Yeah, been reading that McGoldrick might be dropped which would be a bit harsh.

          1. Tsparkes10
            • 1 Year
            10 months, 18 days ago

            Yh I think so but has missed a few easy changes tbf. Could've easily come back to bite us

        2. PUP02
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 18 days ago

          U23's?

          1. Tsparkes10
            • 1 Year
            10 months, 18 days ago

            Nah. Was just a little friendly thing for fitness I think. Greenwood scored for them and Alexis, mata, Smalling, Jones played etc

  6. james 101
    • 8 Years

    Bottomed

    WC team.

    Pope
    Digne WanB Lunds
    Mane Sterling KDB Martial Cantwell
    Pukki Kane

    (Button Dunk Kelly Greenwood)

    Solid?

    1. Little Frank
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      Pretty much same as mine. I'd be tempted to play Dunk ahead of Cantwell.

  7. Lord Flashheart
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 18 days ago

    Perez to mount or Trossard worth -4 considering the price changes?

    1. Balls of Steel
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      Trossard looks tge better player but Chelsea next two are tempting

  8. KDB4PREZ
    10 months, 18 days ago

    Would you guys do Auba/Perez-Sterling/Pukki for -4?

    1. zdrojo187

      No

    2. Tinkertank

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

        actually no it was barkley sorry

  9. MCTAVISH
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 18 days ago

    Lanzini, Mount, Trossard or Moura? I think Moura will score against Newcastle but he will get rotated again and again.

    1. KDB4PREZ
      10 months, 18 days ago

      Tross

    2. Firmino
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      Mount for me

  10. Scout
    • 2 Years

    Yes or no?

    1. Scout
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      no

      1. gooner_112233445566
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        10 months, 18 days ago

        Any changes to make this week? Feel like getting king out... otherwise will waste my free transfer

        1. Scout
          • 2 Years
          10 months, 18 days ago

          yeah i have king trying to get rid of him but dont no who for. not many good strikers at 6.5,

          1. gooner_112233445566
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            10 months, 18 days ago

            I agree massively, really struggling what forwards I can replace king with...

          2. syke63
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            10 months, 18 days ago

            Got rid for Delefeou

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              10 months, 18 days ago

              Good shout, how about gray? With deeney our, surely he should get minutes and is only 5.9

              1. syke63
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                10 months, 18 days ago

                Had a great pre season and considered him. Delo could be on pens swung it in the end. Only for two games before I wc so could go either way. The money saved for Gray wasn't important.

    2. Scout
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      so i have ake, moura and perez. Do you reckon i should get in dunk for ake? and then moura for martial or leave moura and change perez?

      1. gooner_112233445566
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        10 months, 18 days ago

        For me moura is a risk with son back, expect him to start this week, but doubt he will start next weekend

        1. Scout
          • 2 Years
          10 months, 18 days ago

          so reckon keep him this week and change the next? i have 2 free transfers aswell who do you reckon to swap?

          Pope
          VVD, robbo, digne, ake
          salah sterling perez moura
          vardy king

          1. gooner_112233445566
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            10 months, 18 days ago

            Would probably get rid of ake and get a cheaper defender.
            Then maybe even get rid of one of your Liverpool defenders (depends if you need to make up funds)
            Would then consider giving up vardy (don’t need 2 Leicester attackers, not sure vardy is worth his price tag)

            1. Scout
              • 2 Years
              10 months, 18 days ago

              was gonna get rid of ake for dunk and then either get rid of perez or moura.
              if i get rid of moura i can get martial if i get rid of perez have 6.9m

              1. gooner_112233445566
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                10 months, 18 days ago

                Get rid of ake for dunk or Montoya. Keep Perez for this gameweek for me.
                Then completely up to you whether you think moura will get more points than martial for this gameweek (really tough one but I personally would sway with martial, with son back Lucas could easily blank)

                1. Scout
                  • 2 Years
                  10 months, 18 days ago

                  dunk or montoya?. i was thinking of keeping perez due to aganist utd and if he blanks then swap him. Moura will score or assist if he starts i reckon but not sure he will start. he didnt start last game and son wasnt even back so that worried me. so you reckon moura out for martial?

                2. Scout
                  • 2 Years
                  10 months, 18 days ago

                  thanks

    3. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 18 days ago

      If anything I'd do Perez to Trossard/Mcginn for money itb, or King to Maupay

      1. Scout
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 18 days ago

        how about mount or cellabos? what do you think of them?

  17. Dr. Rog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    10 months, 18 days ago

    First sub, Lundstrum or Donkey?

    1. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      Lundstram, compare him to Siggy or Martial in the members area

  18. Tiamani Warrior
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 18 days ago

    Can someone please remind me - can red flagged players on loan etc still drop in price?

    1. Egg noodle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      They can, but they will never be traded in high quantities so will practically never drop in price. To drop in price, you still need X amount of Net transfers Out on that day.

  19. EWH2020

    A) Dunk

      Smalling is an absolute disgrace for not having any of our own players in there yet he can triple up on City and Liverpool?! Feels like he doesn’t even believe in us as title challengers. Just release him on a free

    When is Alisson meant to be back? ie) How long will Adrian be a viable option?

      Grade 2 calf strain so around 3-5 weeks.

    Alexander-Arnold has had 22 crosses already. Just 2 have found a Liverpool player.

      22 crosses is a good workout though

      Definitely going to keep him fit...

    My final wildcard decision. Which one?

    A) Mina + Salah
    B) Digne + Mane

    Thanks

      Prefer Salah as a captain option. What happens to the extra 0.5m with B?

      1. Athletic Nasherbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Have nothing to really use it for.

    Selling Fraser, want to put Mount in but talk me out of it and convince me for Martial!

    1. Kiwivillan

      I can't buy into Martial hype
