Everton assets on the FPL radar following Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival

One of the world’s best FPL managers, Tom Freeman, takes a closer look at how Everton assets are shaping up under Carlo Ancelotti.


Gameweek 20 has drawn to a close and went pretty well for me after I activated my Wildcard, which I left until the last possible week.

A total of 66 points has seen my overall rank rise to 36,928, which is just 26 points off the top 10k.

Kevin De Bruyne (£10.5) was the star of the show but there were also returns for six others, including Ismaïla Sarr (£6.2m), who has really flourished since Nigel Pearson took charge. In fact, looking at data from Gameweek 17-20, only Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) has taken more shots in the box than Sarr, amongst midfielders.

Looking ahead, Everton are a team on my radar, with fixtures turning in Gameweek 22.

In just two matches, new head coach Carlo Ancelotti has installed a more adventurous brand of football, with real attacking intent.

Against Newcastle, The Toffees had an impressive 22 shots, nine of which were on target.

Caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson had successfully used a 4-4-2 for his few games in charge, whilst Ancelotti primarily used variations of a 4-4-2 at Napoli, so continuing with this shape, with limited time to work on tactics, made absolute sense – though he has added his own twist, which sees it transform into something resembling a 3-5-2 when in possession, with Lucas Digne (£5.9m) pushing high on the left.

With five goals in his last five league games, Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.8m) is a player near the top of my Watchlist. After being praised by Ancelotti after scoring the winner against Burnley, he took on the manager’s encouragement by scoring two classic poacher goals against Newcastle United, whilst also creating five chances.

A quick look at Calvert-Lewin’s shot locations over the last two Gameweeks tells us he’s getting quality chances, close to goal.

Defensively, work still needs to be done – not surprising when Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.3m) and Tom Davies (£5.3m) are your central midfielders in a 4-4-2.

Despite this, Djibril Sidibé’s (£5.3m) inclusion as a wide midfielder, rather than full-back, against Burnley was interesting, and something I’m monitoring.

These quotes from Ancelotti, where he discusses the Frenchman’s role after the game, tells us more:

Offensively, he stayed wide. On the other side we had Digne to cover the space there. Defensively (Sidibe) was working in the line of the midfielders, and the 4-4-2 shape, defensively, didn’t change. We tried to build up with Coleman a little bit back, and Sidibe more forward. It went well because he put the cross in for Calvert-Lewin to score the goal.

It’s early days for Ancelotti at Everton but it has been an exciting start.

Also, a quick word on Manchester City, who switched things up in the second half against Sheffield United, and were much improved.

De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva (£7.9m) played in a double pivot, with Rodri (£5.4m) dropping back and forming a three-man defence with Fernandinho (£5.2m) and Eric Garcia (£4.5m), when in possession. 

Riyad Mahrez (£8.3m) moved inside as a number 10, whilst the full-backs were given more license to attack.

How Pep Guardiola sets up going forward is impossible to predict, but that Aston Villa fixture in Gameweek 22 could be one to target.

As focus turns to New Year’s Day and Gameweek 21, here is how I’m currently set up.

If John Lundstram (£5.2m) is passed fit, I’ll likely roll a transfer, which gives me a bit more flexibility if I want to bring in one or two Everton assets next week.

In terms of captaincy, I’m currently on Jamie Vardy (£10.1m). I have fond memories of captaining him in the reverse fixture back in Gameweek 7 and, with Leicester City resting nine players against West Ham United, a fresh starting XI including Vardy will hopefully be set to profit.

Thanks for reading… until next time.

      Need some help to break into top 100K, something must change, I feel like I need Martial over Rashford and remove Grealish because that Villa team is poor without McGinn.

      2FTs, would prefer to carry one over for next week.

      Pope
      Rico TAA Soy
      Grealish Salah KDB Alli
      Vardy Rashford Ings

      Button Kelly Dendoncker Lundstram

      2 FT / 0.1itb

      A, Grealish > Traore
      B, Grealish & Rashford > Martial & Jimi

      1. nerd_is_the_werd
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Squad seems to lack quality in some areas.
          Grealish and Rico may not be good enough for 1st team starters imo.
          Maybe downgrade Salah or TAA to fund elsewhere if possible?

          1. storr84
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Rico isn't, I was relying on Lund but he's fallen off.
            Really don't want to lose either Salah or TAA, without solid replacements.

            Grealish is my least favourite in that current squad, but replacing is difficult.

            Rashford could free up some funds but I fancy his chances tomorrow.

          V nice. I’d captain Kev or Sadio. We’ll be in lock down against Leicester I like Everton

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Unlike Everton*

            Bruce teams fall apart in the second part of season. Norwich, Villa (Fulham again) and Newcastle going down.

            Watford, Saints, West Ham on the bounce. Palace too much resolve.

            1. RAFA THE GAFFA
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 17 days ago

              No chance we go down

              1. TheBrazilianRonaldo
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 17 days ago

                Said Saints fans. Said Portsmouth fans. Said Villa fans. Said Birmingham City fans. Etc.

                1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 17 days ago

                  We’ve been down twice already though and our team is 10 times better than then. And the teams around (at least 5 are worse). We won’t, full stop.

                  1. TheBrazilianRonaldo
                    • 1 Year
                    1 month, 17 days ago

                    I hope not. Best spirited fans in the league and I like Bruce.

                    Here’s hoping Maximin, Shelvey, Linton and Atsu start bringing home the gravy!

          3. fcsaltyballs
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            You’ve got good home form, but do you think you can keep a rested Leicester out? They won 5-0 at home early in the season...

            Keen to hear your thoughts as I don’t know whether to captain Vardy or KDB

            1. RAFA THE GAFFA
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 17 days ago

              We had a man sent off. We’ll be in our shell tomorrow. I wouldn’t captain Vardy but that’s just my opinion

      3. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years

        Last check guys. Best move here? Thank you 🙂

          I’d save if I was you. Great team, Salah/Mane double up will do wonders for you

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            My man! Haha. I hope so! Going all in again with Mo(C), Mane and Trent.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 17 days ago

              Yeah I need to find a way to get Trent into my Mane/Salah team. Means selling Tammy or Maddison

              1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 17 days ago

                Tammy Imo. From watching the games. Maddy still passes the eye test

                1. TheBrazilianRonaldo
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 17 days ago

                  Tammy could have had two last game. He got one. I don’t get this bandwagon fire sale on Tammy. Only Jiminez is as good value as a striker over season

                  1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 17 days ago

                    Eye test.

                    1. TheBrazilianRonaldo
                      • 1 Year
                      1 month, 17 days ago

                      Also known as watching footy. Having watched the games (including last) Tammy is awesome at creating space and scoring in the box. He could be better with his head. Ings the one I rue, after deciding never again after so many injury let downs

          2. Zico Senna
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            I really doubt that, having both is not a thing that works

            1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years

              We’ll see 😉

              1. Zico Senna
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 17 days ago

                I’ve seen it for over 15 GW’s in my team. All i can say is best of luck 😉

                1. TheBrazilianRonaldo
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 17 days ago

                  Plus with such a cushion Klopp gets to ease off in last few fixtures this season and help retain champions league for double. Surely Mané and Salah is a big value waste. Close to 25 mill for two 220 to 260 point players (this season)

                  1. Zico Senna
                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 17 days ago

                    Yep, will continue to rotate as he’s already done. It really is such a huge waste of funds and inbalances and weakens a team, i can atest for that. Feel like i’ve been the mane+mo guinae pig, and conclusion is, it fails.

        As we've reached the half way point for season now:

        1. What are your total hits this season?
        2. How many successful captains have you had? (5+)

        For me
        1. 7 hits, but nearly all have payed off 🙂
        2. 12/20 🙁

        1. Major League Shocker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 17 days ago

          9 total hits. But only 1 in December, so I'm getting better.
          11/20 successful captains

          3 hits. 7 times captain he got 8 points or more (doubled so 16+).

          Reviewing my season my captain choices have let me down. The difference between 100k and 10k

          15 captains (8 or more points) that said numerous times I've had a better VC)
          Nevertheless, it's my best season captain wise for a few years and have a real chance of top 50k finish

            Resting their best player? Nonsense. He is in top, top form. Foolish to rest.

        How does this additional wildcard thingy work? Only available to use in January?

          No can be used anytime up to final week of season

          No, you may use it any game week in 2020. Most people wait until the double game weeks later in the season - usually after GW 33.

          1. Blueberg
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            I'm gunna save mine for next season then and have two wildcards before 2021.

        Best option in your view?

        A Play Grealish away at Burnley or

        B Use free transfer for Grealish to Traoré and play away at Watford

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • 3 Years

          See question above. Leaving towards saving as I would like 2FTs

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Play Grealish. He loves a derby

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          * Would have gone Sarr but need the saving to fund future transfers to get Mané and Salah in midfield for week 24

        Happy new year when it arrives all 🙂

        Little new year nugget, hopefully for your enjoyment and to assist with that vital third Liverpool slot selection, ahead of DGW24.

        Imagine if every consecutive pair of Gameweeks had formed a Double Gameweek so far this season...how would each of the popular Liverpool FPL assets have performed?

        Please don’t captain Vardy people. We played second string at Man U with Gayle and the Longstaffs, and we were chasing and playing high press vs. Everton.

        We’ll be back into our Shell looking for a 1-0 tomorrow!

          • 2 Years

          Honestly this was my gut feeling and it doesn't feel right captaining away to Newcastle. You've swayed my decision

        2. Lav
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Vardy rested. New Year. Just had a child.

          Celebrations will be planned. Hate to say it he is bagging a brace minimum.

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA

            Celebrations planned! Jeez 😆

            I get the point you’re trying to make and I’m sure he will be totally up for it with a fresh team supporting but if the best player in the world plays with a brick wall in front of the goal, they still won’t score!

            Obviously exaggerating but hopefully you get my point. NEW are clearly super-schooled in keeping it tight, whether it be playing a BUR or a MCI or LEI.

          If you play high press against Leicester, you’ll get torn apart

                It won’t matter. Vardy in celebration mode high in red bull and Leicester with the bit between their teeth after a few hard games. Back to being able to skin the opposition on 2-3 breaks.

        With 2 FTs and 1.4m ITB, I want to use one. Who would you change?

          I know it’s hard playing pep roulette, but... you do you think is more likely to start..

          A)Dilva
          B) Mahrez

            Mahrez imo, but I'd love to know the answer to this (or rather Mahrez or Sterling)

        • Coys96
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          1. Here's Tom with the We…
            • 8 Years

            No, I would if I had him.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Mahrez or Sterling for next 3 GWs? (Can afford both)

          1. cuppatea78

            Yes, like the captain pick. Only thing I'd change is Cantwell first sub. I think I'd actually play Cantwell over Traore, as mad as it seems, but I can see why you wouldn't want to do that

            1. GloryManUnited
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 17 days ago

              Been on the fence as well there. Feels like a coin flip and not fully sure where I will end up.

              Also Mendy isn't my favorite pick but I've had him for 2 weeks and this may be his last run out for me. Needs a return for sure.

              Would do Mendy>Sidibe/Digne next week.

              Cheers!

            If you are protecting your rank go with Vardy

              20 points (in 5th) in my ML that I was leading a couple of weeks back

              Would you say I should be patient and protect with Vardy or go with KDB ?

          Can’t decide whether to take a hit and swop him for Jiminez or Kane or another !!

          1. GloryManUnited
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Wouldn't get him in for a hit but can always re-assess next week.

          Captained Kane last 2 GWs and has worked brilliantly. 3 times in a row? Why change something when its working well, right?
