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.

    On WC

    Ryan-Button
    TAA-Digne-AWB-Lundstram-Kelly
    Sterling-Mane-KDB-Martial-Cantwell

    Should my front three be:

    A. Rashford-Pukki-Wickham
    B. Pukki-Deulofeu-Barnes
    C. Pukki and some other combo of 6.0-6.5

    1. Hits from the Bong

    2. mayz19

      No kane?

      1. osceola31909
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Want him. I can see him getting a hat trick this weekend. But it would mean giving up Mane. I think Mane is a better long-term choice.

        1. ChuckN
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          I'm going Kane and will flip in 2 weeks to Mane/Salah with a mini WC.

    4. KDB4PREZ
      2 months, 24 days ago

      So if you WC do you get the original price of players or have to pay the price they stand at?

      1. ChuckN
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Price of players when you pull the WC trigger.

        1. KDB4PREZ
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Cheers man.

    5. MosF94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Not far off my team (except the forwards) - where you have Ryan, Mane, Rashford, Wickham (probably the best option from your 3, can start Lundstram or Cantwell instead of Wickham) I have Pope, Grealish, Kane, Haller - exactly the same defence

  12. FOO FIGHTER
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Is it really worth holding on to assests which have blanked and dropped in price 2 GW's?

    I would be highly pissed if Vardy or Perez blanked again should I still own them plus -0.2m down on my budget. That -0.2m is a massive problem!

    Was the best thing to let them go before they dropped.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Depends if they wake up vs Sheffield.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        2 months, 24 days ago

        I just need Pukki and KDB to make up for the -8 hit I took moving on Perez and Vardy.

        Reckon the -8 will be sorted 🙂

  13. mayz19

    Random but does anybody have the top 5k anytime league code?

  14. T-BOX ⚽

    • 2 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Pope set and forget Keeper. If on WC would you prefer:

    a) Walker, Button
    b) Zinchenko, Adrian

    Retainer: No Liverpool defence

    1. BATISTUTA ®
      • 3 Years

      2. BATISTUTA ®
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        This is not a WC ...Still with my initial squad, took -4 hit this window... sitting at 160 pts

        1. cruzex
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Good

        2. FOO FIGHTER
          2 months, 24 days ago

          I have also loaded my midfield. 352.

          Much more value from midfielders than forwards.

          1. BATISTUTA ®
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            So far so good but it will be imposible to ignore Kane pretty soon... and hopefully its not tomorrow hehe 🙂

            1. FOO FIGHTER
              2 months, 24 days ago

              Kane needs to match Pukki's hattie lol.

              1. BATISTUTA ®
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 24 days ago

                If he could match it ,NEW would be the team to do it against ... terrible so far

        3. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 24 days ago

          You mean 156. 🙂

          Lund over King I guess. Decent squad for revised template especially if Mount and KWP hold up for a reasonable run

          1. BATISTUTA ®
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            160 until tmr thnically 😛

            I sure hope Mount will have some returns as I took a hit to get him ,Barkley didnt make it unfortunately haha 🙂

    2. T-BOX ⚽
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Solid. Would consider King over Lundstram and hope he jags a pen, would be great for you as you own no City defence

      1. BATISTUTA ®
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Thats my only concern tbh ... But I see it this way, even in BOU score it might be possibly 1 goal and Wilson is in better form ... on the other side Lundy CS is more likely ... correct me if I’m wrong

        1. T-BOX ⚽
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          The odds are Sheffield 27% chance of clean sheet, City 48%. I see Leicester scoring so would preference the attacker (King), but it’s a coin toss. Great start, great team. Good luck

          1. BATISTUTA ®
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            I’ll definetly consider it ,thank you and may the gods of fantasy feast with you this weekend 😀

          2. FOO FIGHTER
            2 months, 24 days ago

            SHU are solid at home. They could keep a clean sheet. Especially with how bad Leicester have been in attack.

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              2 months, 24 days ago

              So you didn’t watch the Chelsea match 🙂

            2. BATISTUTA ®
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 24 days ago

              I watched CHE vs LEI and they were not really impressive in the final third ... They will improve thats for sure, some returns from Maddison at least ...hes the one to own out of the bunch i think, cheers !

  16. cruzex

    Rashford is essential?

    1. osceola31909
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Wondering the same thing. Is this a revitalized United or is the United that we saw at the end of last season just waiting to come out?

    2. Mike Bassett Fantasy Manage…
      2 months, 24 days ago

      no but having neither him nor Martial is annoying

  17. Sprofa
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    What should I do with my two FT's this week (0.0 ITB)?

    McGovern, Henderson
    Montoya, Rico, Digne, Alexander-Arnold, VVD
    Salah, KDB, Perez, Dendocker, Robinson
    Wilson, Ings, Kane

    Cheers!

    2. Mauricios Cappuccino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      If you havent already caught the price rises/avoided the drops, I'd be tempted to make 1FT and save and reassess next week. Imo, Have a look at getting out one Pool Def, or Ings.

  18. The Quad
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    on wc

    Pope - button

    Digne - Wan bissaka - soyuncu - el mohammady - Lundstram

    Sterling (Perma Captain) - Mane - Kdb - Son - Cantwell

    Rashford - Pukki - Wickham

    Keeping Rashford until game week 6 with swap to Lacazette, pukki unless form drops may be swapped to enable soyuncu to one of the liverpool defenders.

    rate out of 10

  19. pakornk
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Who to captain Sterling or Kane?

    1. Mauricios Cappuccino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Kane seeing as you have him

  20. KDB4PREZ
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Rash/son-Sterling/6mill striker
    Best option long term?

    1. Mauricios Cappuccino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      The Sterling one. But, anyway you could downgrade elsewhere and find the .5 for Jota, or .6 for Barnes ? Presuming to have Pukki

      1. KDB4PREZ
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Salah to mane lol would be hard to watch but might be best option?

  21. FOO FIGHTER
    2 months, 24 days ago

    I am so glad I have not played my WC yet.

    GW3 going to be an intertesting one.

  22. TheSteel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Start H. Wilson or Dendoncker?

    1. Mauricios Cappuccino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Tough one. Dendoncker

    2. Alonso The Great Midfielder
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      dendocker i think

  23. Slitherene
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Just 2 questions.

    Play Pope (wol) OR Heaton (EVE)?
    Play Diop (wat) or Wilson (MCI)?

    1. Mauricios Cappuccino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Pope
      As for Diop or Wilson, West Ham are 42 percent to keep a cleanie, and City are 52 percent to keep a cleanie. Do with that as you will

    2. AicilaXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Heaton/Wilson

  24. Benny01_
    2 months, 24 days ago

    KWP + Robbo vs Mina (already have Digne) + VVD? Thinking first option but would like your thoughts !

    1. Mauricios Cappuccino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      The one without KWP. IMO Aurier is better and should get in to the side soon after injury

      1. KDB4PREZ
        2 months, 24 days ago

        This tho yeah

    2. KDB4PREZ

    Should i doing Matip to Shaw now (has robbo) for FT although i have enough player to play this week and no other pressing issue? My defend would be like :

    Robertson - Dunk - Lundstram - Digne - Matip

    a Laporte + Digne + Son + Mount + Firmino (352)
    b Walker + Digne + Soyuncu + Son + Kane (442/352)
    c Laporte + Soyuncu + Mount + Firmino + Kane (343)

    Kelly vs Hanley - already have Lundstram, so which of this motley duo is the least awful to be sitting 3rd on my bench?
