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.

      Why did you wait for Siggy to drop curious? Asleep your time price changes?

      Keep. Must be something more urgent than selling Siggy before Aston Villa. I know Aston Villa is not that bad and Everton has not been in great goalscoring form but still if you have him I would definitely keep at least one more week.

    Bought McGinn last night to avoid Robinsons price drop, woke up this morning with this horrible feeling that it will Grealish who will shine in the weeks to come.

    Somebody please tell me I did the right thing.

    1. Francescoli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      McGinn is a great shout.

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      I have McGinn but will not mind at all if Grealish kills it in FPL next few weeks 😆

    3. COK3Y5MURF - UJFC

      McGinn has looked better in both games.

    4. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Opening line of Smith press conference was "..[paraphrased] McGinn is the player that looks most likely to score for us atm. We've been working on him making those forward runs..."

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        He's saying that to make the opposition focus less on stopping grealish

        1. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 19 days ago

          I thought it was McGinn 6 shots 3 on target vs Bournemouth

    5. RubeRx
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      What are you expecting from Aston Villa, they aren't going to run over any team, in fact they will be underdogs in virtually every game they play

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        They will still get a decent amount of goals. Plenty of mediocre teams at about the same level as them.

        1. RubeRx
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 19 days ago

          you may be right

          looking at their stats and surprisingly they've created one more chance than Liverpool along with one fewer shot attempt

          AV 3.04 xG vs 3.13 xG LIV

          small sample size though and historically promoted teams normally start well

          1. Kiwivillan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            10 months, 19 days ago

            5th for shots =5th shots on target

      2. Hairy Potter
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        They're under a bit of pressure to get some points now if they want to stay up as they have very favourable fixtures and a very tricky run in.

      3. el polako
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        They do have a kind run of fixtures coming at 5.5- 6.0 its a risk I'm willing to take.

        1. RubeRx
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 19 days ago

          just be patient with them I guess, could very well be worth it

    6. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Thanks all, need to stop overthinking it I guess - gonna give wee man next several games and hope that he will bring some points in.

    7. Prawnsandwich
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Looks a good pick and have him, but he's not scoring from a lot of shots (apart from the one), maybe not a finisher ....maybe Ceballos or a move up to Trossard / Mount might be better

  3. KDB4PREZ
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Salah/Perez/Auba-
      Sterling/mane/Pukki or 7 mill striker.
      Who gets more long term

      1. Francescoli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Not sure you’d want Perez. If you’re set on a Leicester mid, Tielemans and Maddison are better shouts. In two weeks time I’d want A. But for the next two weeks I’d want B.

        1. Respect My Authoritah
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 19 days ago

          You probably wouldn't want A in 2 weeks, look at Perez's fixtures.

          1. Francescoli
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            10 months, 19 days ago

            I was mainly referring to having Auba and Salah. I’d go Mount over Perez.

            1. Respect My Authoritah
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              10 months, 19 days ago

              I guess, but Sterling's fixtures are better than Auba's. And Pukki goes on a nice run after City

              1. Francescoli
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                10 months, 19 days ago

                Yes actually, Sterling Auba and Mount would be a better combo

            2. KDB4PREZ
                10 months, 19 days ago

                Any help would be great guys
                3-5-2
                Pope
                TAA/AWB/Digne/Rico/Lundy
                Salah/Martial/KDB/Martial/Trossard
                Auba/Deulofeu/Greenwood

                1mill itb and 1 ft. Any ideas what to do lol I’d like sterling and Auba/Perez can go ideally

                1. Francescoli
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  10 months, 19 days ago

                  My personal view is you need a Liverpool mid and a city mid not two from one team. It’s either Sterling or KDB and then either Salah or Mané. Rest of the team looks great. I’d just to Deulofeu to Pukki or Barnes

                  1. KDB4PREZ
                      10 months, 19 days ago

                      Cheers buddy appreciate the response. I do agree with your sentiment just new to the game and feel like I’ll ruin my cash ML if don’t move for sterling with his fixtures and form.

        2. Sloths
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          10 months, 19 days ago

          Lundstram or McGinn?

          1. Sloths
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            10 months, 19 days ago

            To Start

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            10 months, 19 days ago

            Villa 5th most shots =5th most shots on target

          3. Francescoli
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            10 months, 19 days ago

            McGinn

        3. LewanGOALski
          • 8 Years
          10 months, 19 days ago

          Deeney ➡
          A) Pukki (-4)
          B) Barnes (-4)
          C) wait a week and avoid a hit

          ?

          1. jia you jia you
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            10 months, 19 days ago

            If he's injured I'd def go A) as he will rise to 7.0 soon enough I reckon!

          2. Francescoli
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            10 months, 19 days ago

            Both are good shouts. I want both Barnes and Pukki. Pukki will ourperform Barnes in the next two and then Barnes has a wonderful run of fixtures.

        4. ATHEROMA123
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Mount or Trossard?

            • 7 Years

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            10 months, 19 days ago

            I have Trossard. If I was choosing right now I'd go Mount due to the City game for Brighton

          Tough one here lads, gimme a quick 1 or two! On WC:

          1) Laporte, Marital, Salah
          2) Zichenko, Son, Mane

          Rest of the team looks like this:
          Pope
          VVD / X / AWB / Digne
          X / Sterling / De Bruyne / X / Cellabos
          Pukki

          Been mulling this over for a few days...
          Pukki +VVD.
          Or
          TAA+ Jota?

          Pukki has some tough fixtures ahead, but will shoot on sight. TAA is on corners, free kicks with great assist potential. Any thoughts?

            10 months, 19 days ago

            Greenwood will get more minutes but comes with the risk of filling your United quota

          2. Siva Mohan
            • 7 Years
            10 months, 19 days ago

            Greenwood

          3. The Dance
            • 8 Years

            Wickham in case you want a regular third United ayer

            • 1 Year

            Wickham. Plan on neither playing, but greenwood more likely to drop as people free up a spot to take a 3rd UTD player

          5. Kiwivillan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            10 months, 19 days ago

            The one that gets decent minutes. Oh that's neither. Only Wickham because +58% vs -21% and much more likely to get a start albeit not really

          A) Son + Digne/Walker + Mina

          Which is better? Have Kane and Sterling.

          First to 2!

            B - because LPool attacking returns potential

            1. Fernando Torres
              • 8 Years

                I'm not convinced he can. I doubt he'll start this week, plus you have Kane to cover Tottenham. Who knows though, right?

            Why Soyuncu? Don’t get why he is in so many teams

            1. Andy_Social
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              10 months, 19 days ago

              The only nailed-on 4.5 defender playing for a 'top eight' side.

              1. Francescoli
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                10 months, 19 days ago

                I can’t see Leicester being a top 8 side. Also fixtures are pretty rank going forward. Why not play the fixtures with a budget defender? Burnley are the team imo.

                1. Andy_Social
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 7 Years
                  10 months, 19 days ago

                  4.5m is budget defender. No defenders costing less than 4.5 are nailed, imo.

                  1. Francescoli
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years
                    10 months, 19 days ago

                    I’m just saying there are better 4.5 options if you play the fixtures.

                    1. Francescoli
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 5 Years
                      10 months, 19 days ago

                      Have a look at the fixture ticker. Lowton/Pieters are your 4.5 guys.

                      1. Francescoli
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 5 Years
                        10 months, 19 days ago

                        4.6 in Pieters case.

                    2. Andy_Social
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 7 Years
                      10 months, 19 days ago

                      Do you mean rotate 2x4.5s? Too haphazard for me. Soyu isn't nailed in my Starting XI - he's in and out depending on fixtures in a 3-4-3/4-4-2 system.

                      1. Francescoli
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 5 Years
                        10 months, 19 days ago

                        No I mean having one starting 4.5 defender. Have a look at the defensive season ticker and Leicester are way down the list. West Ham, Burnley and Villa have the better fixtures for teams with 4.5 defender options.

              2. jia you jia you

                • 3 Years
                10 months, 19 days ago

                the way they've been playing 'top 16 side'!

            2. jia you jia you
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              10 months, 19 days ago

              Yeah me too, not a good enough pick to play every week and no point in having him as fodder imo...so I don't like the pick either (not a fan of rotating 4.5 defenders either though I must say).

              I've found a perfect little rotation for him 🙂

        15. Waylander
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 19 days ago

          A) Mane and AWB
          Or
          B) Salah and Soyuncu

          Cheers

          1. Respect My Authoritah
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            10 months, 19 days ago

            A, unless you have a rotation plan for Söyüncü

            1. Waylander
              • 3 Years
              10 months, 19 days ago

              Soyuncu will rotate with Montoya and Lundstram.

            As a duo I think A wilk score more points.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Same

            A by a country mile imo Soyuncu is likely a poor pick enough despite his price

            1. Waylander
              • 3 Years
              10 months, 19 days ago

            A. Soyuncu is good in a rotation. Don't see any difference between Mane and Salah other than ownership (praying Salah doesn't haul now:) )

          I’m on this with a wild card but not that happy with VVD feel like if I pool aren’t looking great then he’s the worst out of the three pool defenders to own.. any advice on what to do? I’m not against having no pool defenders!

          Pope
          AWB/VVD/Digne
          Salah/Mount/KDB/Sterling/Martial
          Pukki/Barnes

          Button/Lundstrom/Greenwood/Kelly

            • 9 Years
            10 months, 19 days ago

            Personally would try to work in Kane for Barnes and downgrade Salah (Mane), VVD, Digne.

              • 4 Years

              Just don’t want to be stuck with playing 4.5 every week

              1. Catastrophe
                • 9 Years
                10 months, 19 days ago

                A reasonable sacrifice for having 4 big hitters IMO. The expensive defenders aren't exactly representing good value at the moment (exception of Digne). Albeit only after 2 GWs so who knows!!! 🙂

              2. Kiwivillan
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years

                4.5 defender?

                • 6 Years
                10 months, 19 days ago

                I've gone with 3rd-5th defender no more than 4.5 for last 4-5 seasons

          2. SlipVertonghen
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year

            Mount to Ceballos, frees up enough cash to buy TAA. I'd go Ceballos over mount anyway...

          Pope
          Zinchenko, AWB, Lundstram, Montoya
          Mane, Sterling, KDB, Martial
          Kane (c), Pukki

          (Button, Cantwell, Soyuncu, Greenwood)

          Bench order good? Lundstram/Montoya/Cantwell/Soyuncu rotation looks decent for the next 4 weeks.

            And when Zinchenko is out in 2-3 GW’s? That defence would make me uneasy.

            1. Catastrophe
              • 9 Years
              10 months, 19 days ago

              Cheers. Sacrifice I'm happy to make for the 4 big hitters. Plenty of options at 5.5 if and when Zinchenko gets dropped. Would be surprised if Mendy comes straight in to be honest but we will see! Was considering upgrading to Digne but would mean a 4.0 def on the bench.

          4. Pieterke30
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            V good team.

            Personally prefer upgrading def and get Digne and VVD in. Martial being the ‘victim’ of my decision.

            1. Catastrophe
              • 9 Years
              10 months, 19 days ago

              Cheers. Yeah there's a few options isn't there. Martial just seems too good an option at that price and OOP. But we will see 🙂

          1. Catastrophe

            Kane.

              I'd do Kane if I had him although I'm more than happy captaining Raz.

          People commenting as if you don’t get FT’s when you play WC. It’s fine to go without Salah/Mane for ARS/bur and then an easy 2FT IF you want them at Anfield against Toon.

          Also, cannot believe anyone is picking Son. He is an unknown quantity this season. No idea how Poch will line up, if he starts and how he will settle. Was quite poor at the back end of last season also. It’s a wait and see on Son, Kane is the man this GW

            Well, that's just the thing. Getting them back in is do-able, but hardly easy. It assumes you have no other pressing concerns, you're happy to drop one or two other valuable players and no price rises have hampered you. I'd only go without both if I were sure I wouldn't want them back for some time.

            Agree re. Son

              Not to say it’s the correct or incorrect strategy, just that there are options. Too many people shut down out of the box ideas based on popular sentiment

            Agree with all.
            I’ve gone without on mine and have got Firmino.
            It allows me to have Sterling and KDB in midfield for their nice run of games.
            As you say, if it back fires then I can just use 2 FTs to correct it...

            Son has one of the best points per minute of anyone... better than Mane and Salah

              I can’t seem to find any match data for him this season though? 😉

              That's last season though. Risky to assume he'll immediately pick up where he left off.

            Why would you not want them for ARS/bur....hardly tough fixtures is it? start of season, I thought I’ll get Moura in and then can easily move him on if someone like martial fires, I’ll have 2ft....Now I’m weighing up if the move is worth -4 as I have other fires to put out

            I did it from the start and many on here thought I was nuts (that Norwich fixture was high risk admittedly). One is never more than a hit away from getting in any big hitter really!
            Agree on Son, Kane is the one for this GW for sure based on what we know!

            Not bad fixtures IMO but agree re: allowing for some FTs in a couple of weeks. Think Son will be gold again but big risk to put him in this week IMO especially given he's same price as KDB!

            I think you're overestimating Arsenal.

          So,

          1 Start Heaton (EVE) or pope (wol)?
          2 Start Lundstram (LEI) or king (MCI?

          GTG?

          Pope (Heaton)
          Wan Bissaka/ Digne / Zinchenko (Lundstram/Peiters)
          Mane/ KDB / Sterling / Trossard ( Cantwell)
          Barnes / Rash / Pukki

          On WC
          O.1 in bank
          Trossard - > Mount next GW

          Final decision who to go for?

          A-Dunk
          B-Montoya
          C-Other 4.5 Def if so who?

          Many thanks.

          Players losing value everywhere! Siggy, Barkley...Rico not playing...

          Just done VVD to Maguire and King to Pukki with my freebies.

          Worth Barkley to Trossard (or someone else) for a hit?

            Mina - he's nailed whereas Zinc could lose his place in a few GWs
