Tammy Abraham (£7.9m) starts a second game in less than three days for Chelsea in the Gameweek 16 lunchtime kick-off.
Recently the most-owned player in FPL, Abraham shed a horde of owners after picking up a hip injury on Champions League duty which ruled him out of Gameweek 14 last weekend.
The forward was back in the midweek Chelsea XI as he grabbed a 12-point haul, only to be substituted late on with a fresh knock.
Owners will be delighted to see Abraham start again today alongside his usual partners in crime Willian (£7.1m), Mason Mount (£6.6m) and Christian Pulisic (£7.5).
Popular budget defender Fikayo Tomori (£4.9m) is benched for the second Gameweek in a row as Andreas Christensen (£4.9m) earns consecutive starts in central defence. That could see the centre-back top the list of transfers out for Gameweek 17.
Reece James (£5.0m), who assisted Abraham’s header against Aston Villa in GW15, starts for a third time in four Gameweeks at right-back, increasing his chances of becoming a viable Fantasy asset.
Everton caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson appears to have reverted to a four-man backline, after Marco Silva had switched to a back three for his final games in charge of the Toffees.
Yerry Mina (£5.3m) misses out through injury, leaving Leighton Baines (£4.9m) as the only defender on the Everton bench.
Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.4m) may be set to play a deeper role today as part of either a 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3 system, with Morgan Schneiderlin (£4.4m) the only recognised defensive midfielder in Ferguson’s XI. The temporary manager could also be planning to use a 4-1-4-1 set-up.
Richarlison (£7.8m) had looked set to face off against James from a left-wing position, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.7m) starting up front.
However, Everton’s official team graphic suggests ‘Big Duncan’ could be going back to his roots with an old school 4-4-2.
Everton XI: Pickford; Digne, Keane, Holgate, Sidibe; Iwobi, Schneiderlin, Sigurdsson; Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Walcott.
Chelsea XI: Kepa; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Christensen, James; Kovacic, Kante; Pulisic, Mount, Willian; Abraham.
