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.

          Martial was the plan before I brought in Kane(C):

      If Spurs would play Newcastle every week and I would be allowed to pick 6 players from them, he wouldn't be one.

    Sterling easy captain choice for me this week, even with Kane in my side.

    1. Legend of Rosický
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      The opposite for me

    2. KDB4PREZ
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      This makes me feel even worse about not owning him haha (see post below)

    3. AicilaXI

      25 days, 18 hours ago

      Kane easy captain choice for me this week, even with Sterling in my side.

    4. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      Sterling all the way, City in miles better form than Spurs against an equally porous defence, gonna be a bloodbath.

    5. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      The easy captain choice but also the wrong captain choice 😉

    6. COK3Y5MURF
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      Defensive stats for Bournemouth are worse than Newcastle too though it's admittedly a small sample size. So you may be right.

    7. bigbudgie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      Bournemouth City is mouthwatering
      Sterling (c) KDB Laporte, what could go wrong?

    8. juho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      Yup me too
      Bournemouth’s xgc is worse

  5. KDB4PREZ
    25 days, 18 hours ago

    Salah/Perez/Auba-Sterling/mane/Pukki/7mill striker for a -8.
    Is that crazy guys? Wouldn’t need to touch my team providing injuries until I plan to WC on GW8 lol

  6. RubeRx
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    25 days, 18 hours ago

    Siggy drop is so irritating!

    Would you play either

    Montoya vs SOU or Lundstram vs LEI

    over Wilson vs MCI ?

    That's stupid right, I should just go to bed?

    1. AicilaXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      Wilson > Montoya > Lund for me.

      1. RubeRx
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        25 days, 18 hours ago

        thx for the reply

  7. Brayden29
    • 5 Years
    25 days, 18 hours ago

    On Wildcard so both cost 4.5:
    A) Dunk
    B) Montoya

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      You bought Dunk at 4.5m?

      1. Brayden29
        • 5 Years
        25 days, 18 hours ago

        Yes I got him in before his rise in case I want him

    2. Hairy Potter
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      Dunk for me

    3. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      Don't really rate Montoya and Dunk more likely bonus points. I have Dunk

  8. 03farmboy
    25 days, 18 hours ago

    Who’s the best 4.5m defender?
    I’m struggling to pick between Söyüncü or Montoya

    Or is there an better option at that price bracket

    1. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      I went for Montoya but either could be good.

    2. RubeRx
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      I'd prefer a wingback over a CB all day every day

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        25 days, 18 hours ago

        Montoya is not a great WB so not hugely relevant. 0 goals 1 assist in 2166 mins last season

        1. RubeRx
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          25 days, 18 hours ago

          he wasn't a WB last season

          different system, formation, attack minded tactics etc

          small sample size but as of now he has more touches in the final third than AWB, Digne, TAA, Zinchenko, Ritchie, Azpi, Coleman

        2. FC nelo
          • 3 Years
          25 days, 18 hours ago

          Didn't play as a wingback last year though. And the team seems more attacking this year. He has been more involved going forward the first two games than last year. A big difference.

          1. 03farmboy
            25 days, 14 hours ago

            You reckon he’s the best 4.5 option... Brighton do seem more attacking this season

    3. Sloths
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      How about Lundstram?

      1. 03farmboy
        25 days, 14 hours ago

        Don’t you think Brighton will keep more clean sheets than sheff united?

  9. Legend of Rosický

    With Kelly not nailed, Isnt Hanley from Norwich better bench fodder? dont see him on any WC teams

    1. Kiwivillan

      When is Zimmerman back from injury?

      1. Legend of Rosický
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 18 hours ago

        Im not even sure who is first choice. Is it zimmerman?

                Fixtures putting me off. It's still norwich

                  • 1 Year
                  25 days, 17 hours ago

                  Rememeber Vardy a few seasons ago? We all said fixtures arent good! they just fought a relegation battle FFS! Hes only scored 2 games in a row! and he went on to score 11 games in a row

                  1. Jacky boy
                    • 3 Years
                    25 days, 17 hours ago

                    I think 6.0 or 5.5 defenders will outscore pukki. Maybe I'm wrong.

                      ...talking to Jacky Boy...he could have seen Pukki's stats.

                      1. Jacky boy
                        • 3 Years
                        25 days, 17 hours ago

                        I watched both games. But you know, chelsea, westham away and man city are really really awful. That is a mistake I made with jota this season and brought him in despite those tough games. Never again

                  2. Jacky boy
                    • 3 Years
                    25 days, 17 hours ago

                    I was a member last year. Couldn't afford it this year. And not really needed it.
                    I just used heatmaps and average position in matches. Which I found in some apps

        2. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          25 days, 17 hours ago

          No Mane/Salah. Brave.

          Bench non existent.

          1. Jacky boy
            • 3 Years
            25 days, 17 hours ago

            Think kdb and son are better values. son going to outscore both with those tasty home matches

    2. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      Really not sure, a few lacklustre displays and Poch could do his usual backline rotation

    3. Legend of Rosický
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      Im going KWP. Could be an amazing pick if and will definitely start this weekend. Have lundy to cover when he does get rotated

      1. Jacky boy
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 18 hours ago

        I got kelly to play him vs villa next week when kwp faces arsenal. Just hope he keeps his place for next gw

        1. Legend of Rosický
          • 1 Year
          25 days, 18 hours ago

          I would play him vs Arsenal. Spurs fullbacks have a history of scoring worldies against us

          1. Legend of Rosický
            • 1 Year
            25 days, 17 hours ago

            Rose, Walker, Assu ekotto all did it

          2. Jacky boy
            • 3 Years
            25 days, 17 hours ago

            Arsenal will most certainly score in emirates. Not much chances for assist
            Don't expect much from him.

  11. Sloths
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    25 days, 18 hours ago

    I only have one Liverpool defender in VVD. Considering they're playing Arsenal is it worth going 352 and benching VVD for McGinn?

    Other defenders are Lundstram, Digne, WWB & Kelly

    1. AicilaXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Surely you would play VVD/Digne/AWB?

  12. Joshtrini
    • 1 Year
    25 days, 18 hours ago

    defence = digne,taa,matip,kelly,zinch
    matip to a 5.7m or below
    any suggestions

    I have a question regarding RMT tool in members area.
    It is showing projected score of
    King - 2.90
    Dendoncker - 2.75

    and still it advise me to bench King and play Dendo? why is it so???

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      RMT is a joke in my opinion. It had Anderson against Fulham last season as 3rd highest rated player in FPL even though he'd blanked the previous 6 weeks

    2. bigbudgie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      It's an algorithm and not a particularly good one.

    3. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Hover over the RMT score. If both were guaranteed a full game, Dendo predicted higher.

    4. Valar(Keith)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Dendonker was totally out of steam end of last night. Played brilliant and ran across the entire pitch. May get a bit of a rest this weekend. Just FYI to help you with your decision. Nothing to do with the RMT which I never really use anymore

    5. juho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      I'd hold at least for this GW

    25 days, 18 hours ago

    On WC and had Kane al elk but it weakened my defence so I've pumped for this. Been trolled by Kane every year so think this is better longer term:-

    Pope
    AWB VVD Montoya Digne
    Mane Sterling KDB Martial
    Rashford Pukki

    McGovern Cantwell Lundstram Wickham

    Thoughts?

    1. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      Al elk??!! All week*

    2. Jurgen Flopp
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      If no Kane what about Son?

      1. Houldsworth Hatter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 18 hours ago

        I've considered him but KDB looked incredible last week and I think Sterling could end up top FPL scorer this season. It's an easy change if needed but he may not start this week and may only get up to 60 minutes if he does.

    3. HIT ME!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Rashford -> Barnes
      Martial -> Son

      Is one option

      1. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years
        25 days, 17 hours ago

        Need at least one united attacker, don’t lose both

      2. Houldsworth Hatter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 17 hours ago

        Could do but I'm liking the United players for the next 4. Think they'll score big mate.

    4. mlm
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Nearly the same, but i go for adrian+zinc

    5. RAMZES666
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Almost the exact same WC team as me.

      Just that i had Zinc instead of VVD till at least Alisson returns. Allows 4m keeper to Heaton for some rotation and Montoya to KWP.

    6. Legend of Rosický
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Nah get kane. weaken that defence imo

    7. RLN1985
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Pope
      Laporte/Digne/AWB/Lundstram
      Ceballos/Mane/Sterling/KDB
      Kane/Pukki

      Bench: Button/Cantwell/Kelly/Greenwood

      This can help you decide. Martial + rashford might get less than Kane + ceballos in long term

      1. Houldsworth Hatter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 17 hours ago

        Thanks all. Just think that United attack will do some serious damage in the coming weeks.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          25 days, 17 hours ago

          Do you? I don't think they will relative to other top teams so gone without any on WC. Could backfire of course

    Kane TC could be an option this week.

    1. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years

      You have that much faith?

      1. HIT ME!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        25 days, 18 hours ago

        Think he's hungry for goals, Son is back, playing against Newcastle.
        Personally never get the TC right anyway so I'm considering for these reasons.

        1. ZICO SENNA
          • 8 Years
          25 days, 17 hours ago

          What forward isn’t hungry for goals 🙂 Son may not start straight away, and it’s all personal preference with Kane, i just can’t trust him. Lot of risk involved, i’d rather use it in a DGW

    2. bigbudgie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      God no
      Spurs are just not explosive enough

    3. Hairy Potter
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Maybe, but if Newcastle are that bad it'd wait for GW5 when Liverpool play them. Failing that Man City have some great fixtures later on in the season around the time that there are usually DGW.

    4. AicilaXI

    Glad to see Jota getting sharper and scoring again last night and getting subbed off around 68 mins. Should be fine for the weekend vs Burnley at home. The Jota bandwagon about to leave the station..

    1. bigbudgie

      I want on WC but he's -96.2%

      1. Valar(Keith)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        25 days, 17 hours ago

        Ah. Will probably fall even before he plays. Tricky. I don't mind players like Jota falling tbh.. Since they will rise over the medium term due to their class. And when they do the 0.1 drops are easily recovered

    3. RubeRx
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Not concerned about Europa League hangover? History not kind to teams playing on Thursdays..

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        25 days, 17 hours ago

        Wolves rested Johnny, Neves and if Doherty isn't fit Traore will slot in without issue due to him playing just a few minutes over the past few weeks. The 3 cbs and keeper don't need rest. So that's the back 6 sorted. Jota got a breather last night and Jiminez got 15 mins off too. So hoping overall they won't be affected but will be more match sharp than Burnley if anything

        1. RubeRx
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          25 days, 17 hours ago

          Yea think they will be fine for now, its the long term that might be an issue

          One key injury here or there and everything changes, Doherty is a perfect example

  21. Jurgen Flopp

    Best 4.5m defender lads?

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Mings but I'm biased and I don't have on WC

    2. SlipVertonghen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Probably Soyuncu

    3. Yankee Toffee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Soyucu
      Pieters
      ??

    4. Canary_Kid
      • 2 Years

      Montoya

    5. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Leicester have 3 CS from 12 games under Rodgers. No disgruntled late season Pereira/Chilwell buyers from last season?

  22. Yankee Toffee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    25 days, 17 hours ago

    RMT 352 WC

    4.0, Pope
    AWB, KWP, Soyuncu, Lundstram, Hanley
    Mane, Sterling, KDB, Martial, Ceballos
    Kane, Pukki, 4.5

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      I feel my team is stronger more flexible with McGinn instead of Martial

      1. Yankee Toffee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        25 days, 17 hours ago

        Agreed but Martial > McGinn in points by miles

        1. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          25 days, 17 hours ago

          I'm not certain that's a sure thing

          1. Kiwivillan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            25 days, 17 hours ago

            Pts/$ as I've said before In think Martial was more effective FPL asset LAM than #9 but we'll see

            1. Yankee Toffee
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              25 days, 17 hours ago

              Yes points and value are 2 very important things but at 7.5 I feel that Martial is a great value. Again my def suffers bc of it but I think Lundstram is a gift to us all this season.

              1. Kiwivillan
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                25 days, 17 hours ago

                Back to back goals no bonus is red flag for me

          2. ZICO SENNA
            • 8 Years
            25 days, 17 hours ago

            One plays for united, OOP, and in good form, the other a villa player. Pretty sure thing imo

    2. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      You’ll already know this, great attack, less than average defence, risk/reward and all that 🙂

      1. Yankee Toffee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        25 days, 17 hours ago

        Def is now 5.5, 5.0, 4.5, 4.0, 4.0

        Keeping those prices, can I change players to strengthen it anymore?

        1. ZICO SENNA
          • 8 Years
          25 days, 17 hours ago

          My advice is simply to downgrade Kane and upgrade defence, maybe Rashford best bet. However entirely up to you mate.
          I tried multiple drafts with Kane in, and just couldn’t get comfortable with overall balance no matter how i tried.
          Your call bud 🙂

          1. Yankee Toffee
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          I’d prefer a double up on Burnley in defence and take Lowton/Pieters, than having Soyuncu. Two tough fixtures but then it’s a sea of blue.

          1. Yankee Toffee
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

    3. SlipVertonghen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Your midfield is the same as mine, though I've opted for a stronger defence at the expense of Kane. Good to go I reckon

      1. Yankee Toffee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        25 days, 17 hours ago

        Did u go Rash over Kane?

        1. SlipVertonghen
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          25 days, 17 hours ago

          Yeah, he's got some decent fixtures ahead too

          1. Yankee Toffee
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            25 days, 17 hours ago

            Considered it but only going with Martial for now as I want Kane for this GW. Can move to Rash later if needed. GL?

  23. RLN1985
    • 4 Years
    25 days, 17 hours ago

    On wildcard. Is this team good to go?

    Pope
    Laporte/Digne/AWB/Lundstram
    Ceballos/Mane/Sterling/KDB
    Kane/Pukki

    Bench: Button/Cantwell/Kelly/Greenwood

    idea is lund and cantwell rotation.

    1. Yankee Toffee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      No Man U attack?

      1. RLN1985
        • 4 Years
        25 days, 17 hours ago

        Thats the issue with this team and also no liverpool defenders with their fixtures getting better. But trust KDB + kane + lund will get more than martial + rashford + another defender

        1. ZICO SENNA
          • 8 Years
          25 days, 17 hours ago

          Rather a mix of KDB + Rash/Martial

    2. Effe
      • 9 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Looks good. Maybe KDB to Martial in midfield.

    2. AicilaXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      I'd be wary.

      Could turn out to be a masterstroke, but it will more than likely not happen. Better to get a placeholder and wait until after Arsenal to see how he slots in if you want him that badly imo.

      1. amit1964

        Main reason was getting laporte and son for their coming games

    I like Rashford over Martial, especially now he’s going to be on most pens. However, the saving would allow me to upgrade Mina + VVD. So:

    A) Rashford, Mina, VVD
    B) Martial, Robbo, Digne
