Everton find their groove as Richarlison returns to striker role

Everton 2-0 West Ham

Goals: Bernard (£6.5m), Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.5m)

Assists: Theo Walcott (£6.2m), Richarlison (£7.9m)

Bonus Points: Djibril Sidibé x3 (£5.3m) Bernard x2, Michael Keane (£5.5m), Jordan Pickford x1 (£5.5m), Roberto x1 (£4.4m)

Everton ended their run of four consecutive Premier League defeats with an impressive 2-0 win over West Ham United, with strikes from Bernard (£6.5m) and Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.5m).

Marco Silva’s five changes seemingly energised his Everton side who were rampant from the first whistle to the last. Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.8m) and Sigurdsson were dropped to the bench prior to kick-off, with Richarlison (£7.9m) playing in a central striker role, yet the Brazilian was given full license to roam into wide areas.

With a sense of renewed optimism clearly present in Everton’s play, Bernard’s strike in the 17th minute opened the scoring was a well-taken goal by the Brazilian forward. 

Bernard celebrates scoring the opening goal with Alex Iwobi – who played the number 10 role

West Ham’s goalkeeper Roberto (£4.4m) should have done better to deal with the strike as he continues to come under criticism in Lukasz Fabianski‘s (£5.0m) prolonged absence. With four first-half saves, the Spaniard was certainly the busier of the two keepers in the first 45 minutes, but he definitely appears to be the weak link in West Ham’s defence.

Despite a minor Hammers fightback in the closing stages, it was Sigurdsson who scored an excellent goal to kill off the game.

Although the Icelandic international was dropped to the bench initially by Silva, his first goal of the season and just his second attacking return is likely to fuel the midfielder’s confidence as Everton bid to get their campaign back on track.

Richarlison’s centre-forward role gave him plenty of licence to roam

It was Richarlison, playing officially in a central striking role, who laid off the assist for Sigurdsson, highlighting his effectiveness in the final third for the Toffees. Richarlison arguably should have found the net himself, striking the post in the first half.

Throughout the game at Goodison the Brazilian international drifted across Everton’s front-line, making it a difficult afternoon for the likes of Issa Diop (£4.5m) and Angelo Ogbonna (£4.5m) in central defence. 

The recent emergence of Calvert-Lewin, with two goals in his last three Premier League games, could have interested managers looking for a budget striker but Richarlison’s performance and his wider impact on Everton’s forward line is likely to convince Silva that the Brazilian is best utilised in a central roaming role as opposed to solely out wide. 

Everton will look to use this result to kick on and ensure their 2019/20 campaign does not slip into the realms of disarray, and with the likes of Richarlison, Sigurdsson and Bernard all registering attacking returns, the Toffees are well placed to offer potential value to managers with a promising run of fixtures including Brighton, Southampton and Norwich in their next four Gameweeks.

West Ham have struggled at the back since Roberto has been forced to deputise for Fabianski

After keeping three consecutive clean-sheets against Norwich, Aston Villa and Manchester United, Pellegrini’s side have now failed to keep the opposition out on three successive occasions, with the decline in their defensive solidity coinciding with the injury to goalkeeper Fabianski, who is expected to be out until 2020. 

Although managers may have been inclined to invest in the likes of Diop or Ogbonna – who have started all eight of their side’s Premier League fixtures since the opening weekend – presently Pellegrini’s men to not represent a side worthy of defensive investment.

It was not just West Ham’s defence that struggled though, with Pellegrini declaring his dissatisfaction with all of his starting XI. 

Yarmolenko did not start for West Ham at Goodison Park

To the frustration of his owners, Andriy Yarmolenko (£6.0m) was named on the bench as Pablo Fornals (£6.1m) was handed a surprise start. The latter was especially poor in an opening period characterised by a lack of service for Sébastian Haller (£7.4m).

“If I could have changed all 11 players at half time then I would have done.” – Manuel Pellegrini

In an attempting to fix their problems, Pellegrini left Fornals on the pitch and replaced Felipe Anderson (£6.9m) with Yarmolneko at half-time instead, which arguably did not help their cause too much.

Pablo Fornals continues to add very little to West Ham’s attacking prospects

For Pellegrini, a highly promising start to the 2019/20 Premier League campaign has now firmly dulled, with his side now winless in three. 

Early-season interest in the likes of Haller may now have simmered given the Hammer’s alarming inconsistency, although there remains value in the likes of Yarmolenko despite his benching in the lunch-time kick-off. 

Everton XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford, Sidibé, Keane, Mina (Holgate 90+4′) Digne, Andre Gomes, Davies, Bernard, Walcott (Keane 86′) Iwobi (Sigurdsson 87′) Richarlison.

West Ham United XI (4-2-3-1): Roberto, Fredericks, Ogbonna, Diop, Masuaku, Rice, Noble (Ajeti 74′) Lanzini, Fornals (Wilshere 63′) Anderson (Yarmolenko 45′) Haller.

    Genuinely, do you ever play your WC and not regret the decisions you made?

    Just looked at my first draft including CHO, Vardy and Webster. All of which weren't in my final team!

    1. PlumaPiedra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      24 days, 16 hours ago

      I think I have half of FPL during my WC tinkering in my team so if I did regret every one of those I'd go mad.

        Very true point my friend!

      The more you tinker with it, the more chances of you having all the scorers for that GW at least once in your team.

            Also have Rico coming in with his 8. Would truly be a horror show if I didn’t as I’m on 17 without that so far!

        Thoughts on Ings as a Pukki replacement?

        1. KGFC
          • 3 Years
          24 days, 16 hours ago

          Nice differential

        2. Jullepuu
            24 days, 16 hours ago

            It's okay if you have a good plan for the extra cash. It's not bad but it's not great either.

            1. Cruz88
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              24 days, 16 hours ago

              Better than Jiminez?

              1. Railwayman
                • 6 Years
                24 days, 16 hours ago

                Get Jimenez if you can.

              2. Jullepuu
                  24 days, 15 hours ago

                  Personally I'm not too sold on Jimenez. Wolves didn't create many chances against Southampton and they have EL also. I can't say that Jimenez is a bad pick though. It depends on what the extra cash would be used for.

                  1. Cruz88
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    24 days, 15 hours ago

                    I don't actually need the extra cash, unless Otamendi necessitates an upgrade. I have enough to get Mendy though and keep Pukki. Just not sure about Mendy's nailedness. Cancelo also an option this week.

            2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              24 days, 16 hours ago

              I’m a big Ings fan, he’s always been a handy FPL asset when he’s been fit

              But the last four words of that sentence have always been the problem 🙁

              1. Midlands Saint73
                • 2 Years
                24 days, 15 hours ago

                This. I'd love to get him in but I'm putting the mockers on literally everyone I sign so not getting any Saints players.

            3. PlayPercentage
              • 9 Years
              24 days, 16 hours ago

              A sideways move. Pukki has some good fixtures coming up.

              1. Cruz88
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                24 days, 15 hours ago

                Aside from the Watford game I'm not sure if I agree

            4. doyeon
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              24 days, 15 hours ago

              Good if he can stay fit.

            • 8 Years
            24 days, 16 hours ago

            Looking at doing Pukki and Son to Vardy and Martial (assuming he’s fit). Otherwise it would be Maddison

            1. FPL_DON
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              24 days, 16 hours ago

              I wouldn't go near martial

            2. thegaffer82
              • 8 Years
              24 days, 16 hours ago

              May as well hold on Martial. Utd look awful in attack and he’s just coming back from injury.

              I’m a Utd fan, and I’m going nowhere near any of their players.

            3. Jullepuu
                24 days, 15 hours ago

                Wouldn't be surprised if Martial gets injured in the next game. Could easily score a brace tho..

              Suggestions for this team? Thinking Wilson > Jiménez/Vardy.

              Pope
              Söyüncü - TAA - Boly
              Mané - KDB - Hudson-Odoi - Mount
              Aubameyang - Callum Wilson - Abraham
              (McGovern - Rico - Lundstram - Saka)

              1. Joey Barton and Friends
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                24 days, 16 hours ago

                Looks pretty good. Not sure you need to ditch Wilson?

                1. TAT
                  • 1 Year
                  24 days, 16 hours ago

                  Not so sure he'll grab too many points going forward (kept him on WC for the Norwich game), and Jiménez/Vardy looks tempting going forward.

              2. thegaffer82
                • 8 Years
                24 days, 16 hours ago

                I’d keep hold of Wilson.

                He’s only blanked twice all season and is fairly cheap.

                Vardy is consistent, but not explosive. Jiménez too streaky with his scoring.

                1. TAT
                  • 1 Year
                  24 days, 16 hours ago

                  I definitely see that argument. Then there's the fixtures; both Jiménez and Vardy have a good run of games going forward, while Wilson's are getting a bit trickier.

                  1. HMC
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years
                    24 days, 15 hours ago

                    Wilson also not on pens

                    1. TAT
                      • 1 Year
                      24 days, 15 hours ago

                      That's a good point; both Vardy and Jiménez are.

                    2. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 5 Years
                      24 days, 15 hours ago

                      Surely he is if King doesn’t play like last game?

                      1. HMC
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 9 Years
                        24 days, 15 hours ago

                        Might be due to King playing for Norway so likely rested. Wilson not first choice if King starts

            5. Jullepuu
                24 days, 16 hours ago

                I did Pukki and Sterling to Vardy and KDB last night to avoid the price fall. To my surprise KDB went up too so I guess I got lucky with that one.
                How is my team looking for the next game week?

                Pope

                TAA - Otamendi - Boly - Soyuncu

                KDB - Mane - Mount

                Abraham - Vardy - Aubameyang

                Bench: Lundstram - Cantwell - McGinn

                  Considering same moves, would give dame front 3.

                  Looking good

                24 days, 16 hours ago

                20 with Salah TAA Auba left, plus 8 from Rico to come in for Ota - sounds low but could still easily be a green. Weird.

                Mane the only one that can really hurt me I think, but as a Liverpool fan I'd take a Mane haul anyway..

                1. donlobatto
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  24 days, 15 hours ago

                  That’s a good score and having a LIV attacker plus Auba left is likely to give you the upper hand. I only have Mané, TAA and Lunds left with 25 inc autosubs.
                  Know what you mean also as I’m also a LIV fan so wouldn’t exactly be devastated if Salah hauled (as long as Mané does too ;-))

                24 days, 15 hours ago

                Planned Wilson to Vardy but afraid of being priced out. If it looks like a rise before the next gw, make the move or keep Wilson?

                • 4 Years
                24 days, 15 hours ago

                If Tierney fires tomorrow, who is the most droppable?
                A. Soyuncu (great fixtures, just Cs appeal)
                B. Boly (good fixtures, more points potential)

                1. Holding Matip
                  • 2 Years
                  24 days, 15 hours ago

                  Boly

                  Neither. It is an irony that any opinion I give and fairly informed at that, goes pairshaped anyway

                Vardy vs Lacazette and why (4 marks)

                  Cheaper
                  On pens
                  Less injury prone
                  Less chance of rotation with europe

                  Vardy because he doesn’t play for ARS and is as nailed as they come. Short and sweet

                Morning all

                Looking past this (likely to remain) horror show of a GW, my team is presenting a bit of a benching headache as I have to bench one of:
                Boly (new)
                Rico (wat)
                Lunds (whu)

                What would you do?

                Aguero, Wilson, Abraham
                (McGovern) (Lunds, Willems, Dendo)

                  I would bench Rico, I am!

                    Hmm it’s hard as Rico and Lunds both have ability to score well against anyone. I got lucky this week with Rico first on bench and Kun in the starting 11 - may not be so lucky next time!

                What's the deal with Mark this season? Seems he lost his magic touch when I look his team and see injured Martial for weeks... that is so odd for him. Expect him to bounce back at some point in the season.

                  Probably dropped since Tomkins came back from injury. Don't think Sakho is too far away either.

                  It’s a good team. Although he didn’t deliver yesterday, I’d say Cantwell to Maddison would still be worth it

                  Think I would be looking at bringing in Vardy with those up coming fixtures, And imo I would bring in a rotating keeper for Pope as fixtures are about to get nasty.

                Anyone else think the return of Mendy is bad news for Sterlings point output? I distinctly remember him playing last year meant Sane was dropped as they needed someone who would cover his runs. I did notice last night that Sterling was having to do a fair bit of defensive work and this was against Crystal Palace!

                  24 days, 15 hours ago

                  Nope. Other way around. For provides width which allows Sterling to spend more time in the box.

                    Mendy*

                    24 days, 15 hours ago

                    I did think this but didn't seem like the case last night until perhaps the last half an hour

                  I think Mendy helps Sterling. Mendy creates the width, which allows Sterling to cut inside and shoot. I don't think it is surprising that Sterling had 4 good chances in the second half yesterday with Mendy playing. Can't blame Mendy for Sterling putting all four shots wide. Zinchenko doesn't offer the same threat as Mendy IMO.

                    Agreed, think it benefits Sterling

                    Sterling is literally assuming the same position as Alonso and he is worse at it. If you want Sterling just get Alonso for 6 mill cheaper

                          he actually is tho, watch Alonso and watch Sterling. Alonso is a better crosser of the baller, is on set pieces. He is actually a more attractive prospect than Sterling.
                          The only difference is Alonso has to track back and defend where as Sterling doesnt

                    Salah to KDB
                    Yes/No?
                    Other way to get KDB is downgrading Sterling. Which way should I get KDB, for Salah or Sterling?

                      Any suggestions on what to change with this team? The less template the better 😀

                      Heaton
                      Ota - Rico - Lunds (Lowton, Hanley)
                      Pepe - Son - Yarmo - Mount - Mane
                      Auba - Kane (Deadwood)

                        Just missing City mid so maybe Ota >Kelly + Yarmo>DSilva how is that for non template.

                        You're anyway far enough away from the template.

                        Get KDB

                            Son > KDB
                            Kane > Vardy or Jimi?

                            ty guys, yea I like the Dilva sugegstion. Had him a while ago for a few weeks. Yarmo has 2 decent fixtures up next I think he deserves them.
                            Surprised you didnt say Son or Pepe > KDB

                            I really need to sort out my TAA situation lol, been needing/wanting him for ages and never get round to it. Is TAA worth getting in now even though their next 2 arent great? I also like the look of Alonso but people thinking Emerosn will joust him, shame if thats the case would like to jump on ALonso

                            You are missing a forward.

                                yes thats annoying! I changed formations not long ago but now I want 3-4-3 back, that was short sighted and probably a bad call on my behalf. But I think there is many good midfield options and at the time there wasnt many forwards that interested me, but now Jimi is on my radar for that 3rd spot.

                                  Oh i thought deadwood was for kane. Vardy is popular pick. Could work out. Pepe to kdb too.

                                Ota to Pereira/Digne/Alonso
                                any 2 mids to Richarlison and Traore
                                Jimenez or Connolly as forward

                                    yea was thinking about Digne. Is Digne a thing again? Crude differential perhaps, altho I looked at their fixtures yestrday and I wasnt totally bowled over.
                                    Could he have had 2/3 assists yesterday? Didnt watch the game

                                      Dont think digne is back to his self. He was getting lots of crosses but most of them were overhit.

                                  Son, Pepe and kane waste of money. Put atleast kdb.

                                  Ota not nailed, so might as well swap to Soyuncu or Digne
