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.

          3 months, 25 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.

      pope

        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
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Pérez to lanzini

          1. Scout
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 25 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
            3 months, 25 days ago

            or perez out for mount?

    3. GuillermoDickero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 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
        3 months, 25 days ago

        He's 4.5 that's all that matters

        1. GuillermoDickero
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 25 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
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Yep

    4. Balls of Steel
      • 4 Years

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

      1. CostaCoffee
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Lanzini as a differential

      2. SAY MY NAME
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

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

      3. Balls of Steel
        • 4 Years

        Thanks guys

      4. Dthinger

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

    5. Tsparkes10

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

      1. FortunesAlwaysHiding
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 25 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
          3 months, 25 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
            3 months, 25 days ago

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

            1. Tsparkes10
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 25 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

            U23's?

            1. Tsparkes10
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 25 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

      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
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 25 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
      3 months, 25 days ago

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

      1. Balls of Steel
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Trossard looks tge better player but Chelsea next two are tempting

    8. KDB4PREZ
        3 months, 25 days ago

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

        1. zdrojo187
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          No

      • MCTAVISH
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

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

        1. KDB4PREZ
            3 months, 25 days ago

            Tross

          • Firmino
            • 4 Years

        2. Scout
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

                I'd be tempted to gamble as have 2 FT and do King to Maupay.

          Vvd, digne, Montoya, (lund), (rico)
          Sterling, kdd, salah, martial, Perez
          King, Jimenez, (Greenwood)

          2 free transfers, 0 in the bank

          Was thinking vvd and king out for zinchenko and pukki this week, then next week doing Perez out for Maddison...

          Yes or no?

          1. Scout
            • 2 Years

            no

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

              1. Scout

                3 months, 25 days ago

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

                  Got rid for Delefeou

                    3 months, 25 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
                      3 months, 25 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
            3 months, 25 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
              3 months, 25 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
                3 months, 25 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

                  3 months, 25 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
                    3 months, 25 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

                      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)

                        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?

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

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

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

            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.

              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?

            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...

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