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.

    Best West Ham attacker (midfielder or striker)

    1. Balls of Steel
      • 4 Years

      Looks like Lanzini

    Best move here fellas, and why?

    A) Robbo & Barkley -> KWP/Boly & Martial

      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
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 23 days ago

        all three options address this

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          10 months, 23 days ago

          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

    3. EMBOLOFAN

  4. ooooo
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 23 days ago

    Heaton
    Robbo VVD Digne Lowton
    Salah Sterling Pérez Trossard
    Kane King

    Button Dendoncker Rico Greenwood.

    which one?
    A)Robbo + king to Dunk + Rashford for free
    B) Robbo + Perez to zinchenko + Martial for free.

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      neither

      1. ooooo

      B

  5. Tsparkes10
    • 1 Year

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

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 23 days ago

      0-2

    2. Double Treble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      10 is enough. I'll take it. Last game i got 14 from him.

    3. Double Treble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 23 days ago

      Just make sure mcGoldrick finish what Lunny creates

    4. Warby84
      • 4 Years

      0-1

  6. IRBOX ⚽

    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!

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 23 days ago

      could easily happen yep

    Best 6.5 striker or below?

    1. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 23 days ago

      Find the extra .3 for pukki.

    2. Istanbul 05
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 23 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
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 23 days ago

      None

      Pukki and Barnes

  8. Forever In Our Shadow
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 23 days ago

    Is 354 a decent RMT score?

  9. Lebanese Lalous
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 23 days ago

    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.

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 23 days ago

      roll ft

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 23 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
      10 months, 23 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.

  10. Dthinger
    • 3 Years

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

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 23 days ago

      12.5

      1. Dthinger
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 23 days ago

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

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          10 months, 23 days ago

          4.5

    2. Poseidon.
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 23 days ago

      3.2

    3. Balls of Steel
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 23 days ago

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

    4. Dthinger
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 23 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

    5. ...al
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 23 days ago

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

    6. SEYPULISIC
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 23 days ago

      7.2

  11. Sea the Frankel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 23 days ago

    Best under 8m mid?

    1. mookie
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 23 days ago

      Martial

      1. Dthinger
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 23 days ago

        too easy

        1. Sea the Frankel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          10 months, 23 days ago

          Ok ok I'm sold

    2. Istanbul 05
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 23 days ago

      Martial or Maddison

      Or even cheaper ones in Trossard or Mount

    3. ...al
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 23 days ago

      Martial Trossard Cebellos Mount in that order

    4. Double Treble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 23 days ago

      And no one mention Trezeguet...

  12. Gunners n' Roses
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 23 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
      10 months, 23 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
        10 months, 23 days ago

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

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          10 months, 23 days ago

          Not bad shout at all.

      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

    Barns Pukki Kane (C)

    Button Ceballos Lundstrom Soyuncu

        Looks very strong

      • Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 23 days ago

        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

              10 months, 23 days ago

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

              I’m looking at similar. Also Robbo Perez King -> Pukki Martial + whoever you can afford.

                Any option with sterling is the one to go for especially with the upcoming fixtures

                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
