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.

          I really dislike your team structure with so much at the back. For that reason, I'd go C to take steps to fix that.

          1. Dthinger
            • 2 Years

            all three options address this

              Not really no. They are still vying for starts. I'm talking the 4.0ms who you're happy to bench every week that could occasionally come in to save a week with random injuries/rotation.

        2. mookie

        Can't wait for Vardy, Perez to blank, Robinson to punish sellers and Lundstram to get 10 points again

        Mount could be huge. Has played all 180mins so far and given huge praise from Lampard who says his best is yet to come.. he could have had a brace or even hat-trick against Leicester. Norwich will be open for the picking and cue the next big bandwagon!

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Best 6.5 striker or below?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          Find the extra .3 for pukki.

        2. dmkp
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 21 days ago

          There isn't one but if you want one then choose one of the Southampton forwards.

          Maupay might be option if he earns a starting place

        3. ...al - Come out to the coa…
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 21 days ago

          None

          Pukki and Barnes

      9. Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Is 354 a decent RMT score?

      10. Lebanese Lalous

        Reposting since didn't get any responses.
        Current Team:
        Ryan - Button
        Robbo - Digne - Zouma - Diop - Lundstram
        Salah - Sterling - Ayoze - Trossard - Dendo
        Kane - King - Adams
        0 itb
        A) Ayoze -> Lanzini
        B) Salah, Ayoze, Robbo --> Mane, KdB, Suyuncu (-4)
        C) WC

        Cheers for any aid.

          roll ft

        2. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 21 days ago

          King to Maupay if you have balls. But roll ft if not

        3. Forever In Our Shadow
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 21 days ago

          B. The thing is I am on WC and it just doesn't feel right with Kane KDB Sterling a Mane because it means no liverpool defence or a poor looking defence. Its a toughie.

        Anyone care to make a prediction of Fraser's price come GW 5?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          1. Dthinger
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 21 days ago

            I said Fraser, not the combined price of Fraser and Wilson

            Oh stop, I'm just about to take a - 4 to get him out

          • Dthinger
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 21 days ago

            I think he's going to be below 7.0 which has me thinking that will be a good time to get him

          • ...al - Come out to the coa…
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 21 days ago

            Depends how he does. It will probably stabilise for a week or two and maybe drop .1 more?

            Martial

            1. Dthinger
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 21 days ago

              too easy

          2. dmkp
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 21 days ago

            Martial or Maddison

            Or even cheaper ones in Trossard or Mount

          3. ...al - Come out to the coa…
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 21 days ago

            Martial Trossard Cebellos Mount in that order

          4. Double Treble
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 21 days ago

            And no one mention Trezeguet...

        4. Gunners n' Roses
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 21 days ago

          On a Wildcard:

          Pope/Heaton
          Laporte/Digne/AWB/Montoya/Lundstram
          Sterling/KDB/Martial/Maddison/Donkey
          Firmino/Pukki/Deulofeu

          I'm not too worried about not having Salah/Mane or Kane/Auba; I have easy routes to either by downgrading KDB/Firmino

          Not too chuffed about Deulofeu, Jota or King better options? Maddison is a personal sort of punt but I want Siggy too

          1. Tsparkes10
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 21 days ago

            Could easy do a 442 with Montoya so Delu to Greenwood and Firminho to kane. Probs prefer Jota and maybe even a punt like Maupay, how bad can it be?

            1. Gunners n' Roses
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 21 days ago

              Think I might even do Delu to Greenwood and Donkey to Trossard at this point, just so many mid options!

            Perez fixtures are about to get good. Give him a final chance.
            If you’re set on getting rid then B - Pukki is going to keep rising in price over next few weeks and his stats are great.

          This is turning in to a very long week on a WC!

          Any changes to this? It’s either Kane or Mane for me and you can have um all! We’ve all tried!

          Ryan
          AWB VD Digne
          Martial KDB Mount Sterling
          Barns Pukki Kane (C)

          Button Ceballos Lundstrom Soyuncu

              Barnes to Greenwood, mount to Son and Kane to Firminho would tempt me. Rotate between lundstram, ceballos and soyuncu. Benching headaches to come with that team

              Your keeper will be busy. City, Liv, Utd, Chel, Ars all away up to gw 15. In it for the save points?

                Figure I’m covered if anything happens Ron Ryan. Would you do Pope instead of Ryan?

                Team is

                    A for me but maybe Trossard instead of mount if long term plan.

                      A. Nice fixture and prefer martial to Rashford. Can easy downgrade Kane if not working to get in Son, Pepe or KDB. Looks good. Not too sold on Mount myself, prefer Trossard or even Mcginn and money itb

                        Cheers for input, I thought about Mcginn but I also have Wesley, gonna give him another game and hope for the best. Hopefully he can release his inner Benteke
