Can new Everton signing Allan improve the Toffees’ FPL clean sheet prospects?

Everton completed the signing of Allan (£5.5m) from Napoli a week before the start of the 2020/21 campaign, with the Brazilian putting pen to paper on a three-year deal.

The central midfielder will be reunited with Carlo Ancelotti, who coached him for 18 months in Serie A.

While the subsequent capture of James Rodriguez (£7.5m) has perhaps overshadowed it, Allan’s move to Merseyside is still worthy of note from a Fantasy perspective.

The 29-year-old Brazil international likely won’t attract much interest in Fantasy Premier League himself, it should be said: a total of 12 league goals in a career spanning more than a decade is a strong indicator on that front.

The ex-Napoli man only once registered more than five assists in a single season in his eight-year stay in Serie A, meanwhile.

But it’s his potential impact on other Fantasy assets from Everton that we’ll be examining here, a topic that is perhaps even more pertinent given that Ancelotti’s troops sit near the top of our Season Ticker until December: the Toffees face all three newly promoted clubs and five teams who finished tenth or below in the Premier League last season in the first 11 Gameweeks of the new campaign.

PLAYING STYLE

A combative, all-action central midfielder, Allan was a much-needed capture for Everton given their woes in the middle of the park in 2019/20.

The sale of Idrissa Gueye and long-term absence of Jean-Philippe Gbamin (£5.0m) left the Toffees desperately short of defensive shields last season and Ancelotti’s persistence with a 4-4-2 only added to the problems, with Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.0m), Andre Gomes (£5.5m) and Tom Davies (£5.5m) all failing to convince when they were used in a two-man central midfield.

The immobile Sigurdsson especially isn’t suited to such a deep role in the middle of the park, while it’s no coincidence that Gomes’ form suffered without a Gueye-type anchor alongside him.

It soon became blindingly obvious that reinforcements would be needed in the engine room, especially if Ancelotti was to continue with his preferred formation.

He may not be exactly the same type of player as Gueye but Allan nevertheless fits the bill, with the player himself describing his playing style upon signing for the Toffees:

A strong part of my game is marking and the desire to go in to win absolutely every ball.

That is definitely a differential in my game and I believe with my desire I can put in really good performances to win over the fans.

I’ve been very competitive since I was a child; always wanted to win.

Everything we do in midfield and defence – winning a 50/50, winning a tackle or a one-on-one, clearing the ball – a lot of the time it’s like scoring a goal.

In the game, sometimes these things are very important.

At times it all seems so natural but a tackle, winning a one-on-one, clearing a ball; if it’s quite a tight game, we celebrate as if it’s a goal.

That’s about dedication and giving everything on the pitch.

Ancelotti said of his new recruit, meanwhile:

I think Allan is a fantastic player, he has fantastic energy and quality in midfield. I know him very well and he knows me.

Our supporters will love him because he plays with a lot of passion. He is a fantastic signing for us.

Tactically he is really good. Really strong defensively, he wins a lot of balls. He is aggressive and he is Brazilian, so he is able to do both – [contribute] with the ball and without the ball.

For sure, with Allan we are going to improve.

THE HISTORY

Born in Rio de Janeiro in January 1991, Allan’s senior career began in earnest with Vasco de Gama in his homeland.

After making 51 league appearances (without scoring) for the Brazilian outfit, Allan made the move to Udinese in July 2012.

Swiftly becoming a regular in Francisco Guidolin’s overachieving side, Allan spent three seasons with Il Bianconeri – helping them to a fifth-place finish in the first of them – before Napoli won the hotly contested race for his signature in July 2015.

His first three years in Naples were spent under Maurizio Sarri, with Allan very rarely used at the base of the midfield.

Rather, he was more commonly operating in the sort of role we saw N’Golo Kante (£5.0m) in during Sarri’s season-long stay at Stamford Bridge, playing to the side of a ball-playing ‘regista’ – namely Jorginho (£5.0m) – in a 4-3-3.

His attacking returns rose modestly as a result but, following Ancelotti’s appointment as Sarri’s successor in July 2018, the Brazilian was tasked with a more disciplined role in the central midfield two of a 4-4-2 – a system he may again be operating in on Merseyside.

Allan arrives in England off the back of his worst season in years.

A stop-start campaign that was littered with fitness issues ended badly, with Ancelotti sacked in December 2019, Allan falling out with new coach Gennaro Gattuso and losing his place, and Napoli slumping to their worst finish (seventh) in over a decade.

    Tried a different 4-5-1 team

    McCarthy nyland
    TAA Doherty Egan Johnson Mitchell
    Aubameyang Fernandes Greenwood ASM Salah
    Brewster Jimenez Davis

    Will rely on Mitchell and Johnson starting in GW1 with the United duo back for GW2

    1. Another Hoops
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      What a POWER midfield that is!!! I like it if your 4.0s start and especially if Brewster gets a loan move 🙂

    2. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      I think we need a stronger bench this season with covid around. Starting 11 looks great.

    3. ivantys
        2 months, 27 days ago

        That's 9 starting players for GW1, I get that you love manu so much

        1. The Red Devil
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Mitchell should start, no? Johnson is the doubtful one

          1. ivantys
              2 months, 27 days ago

              You have 4 attacking players not starting, unless the fernandes you referring to the spurs one.

        2. fatty100kg
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 27 days ago

          You really should have eg. Son/Havertz for GW1 and then just take a -4 to get Manu in. Why give up gw1 before it starts 😉

      • Another Hoops

        Morning. I'm done tinkering until we hear the pressers. Feel free to copy and paste for gameweek 1 😉

        Ryan
        Robertson - Walker Peters - TAA
        Son - Auba (c) - Periera - Saint Max
        Ings (vc) - Jimmy - Werner

        Walton - Johnson - Ayling - Bissouma (0.5 ITB)

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Good team, similar prices as mine below. Personally prefer one 6.0/6.5 fwd as there should be value there with Mitro, Rodrigo, Antonio, Wilson. But that forward trio looks great.

          1. Another Hoops
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Cheers mate. Agree with the cheaper forwards, the plan is to wait and see which one steps up and go there.

      • Pukki Party
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Thoughts? Different draft to most, going with only one premium. Have 1.5itb so have a lot of options.

        Johnstone
        TAA Robbo Justin
        Salah Son Fraser Soucek
        Jimenez Richarlison Nketiah

        Button KwP Greenwood Taylor

        1. De Gea is GOAT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Different and i like it. How do you feel about double LIV defence?

          1. Pukki Party
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            I think they will outscore the 7.0 mids and forwards so feel confident. Robbo ownership 13% so will benefit if Liverpool keep clean sheets.

        2. Another Hoops
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Not sure that Fraser starts gameweek 1 and we know about Soucek so obviously keep an eye on the pressers and at least you have KWP to cover one. Personally I would go DCL instead of Ricky just for the extra million ITB otherwise looks good to go.

          1. Pukki Party
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Yeah thanks still important pressers. Would you spend the 1m or just keep it itb? Can afford straight transfer Son to KdB if keeping itb.

            1. Another Hoops
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 27 days ago

              If you're happy with your team I would probably just keep ITB to upgrade Son but I do expect KDB to go up at least 0.1 in gameweek 2 so you might have to act fast on that one.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          2 months, 27 days ago

          Doubt Fraser starts. Soucek might but apparently WH are at war with themselves.,Nketiah? Quite like Rich.

          Way too many 50:50 calls in there for my taste.

      • Vazza
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Anyone here going without Saleh/Mane?

          1. fatty100kg
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Yep, but triple Pool defence

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Chances of Fulham's Harrison Reed starting regularly? Seemed to be a key man in their promotion push last season. Also looking at Bissouma who will play more regularly I feel...

          1. Schliegs
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            great question that i would love to know the answer to

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            From what I read last night I would suspect he will

            I suspect Bissouma is the better option either way

            1. Cometh The Aouar...
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 27 days ago

              What did you Reed (sorry!) and where? lol

              1. The Big Cheese
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 27 days ago

                I can't remember. But it credited a lot of their later season form on Reed and was written before he had become a permanent player for them

          3. ivantys
              2 months, 27 days ago

              He's a DM also, so Bissouma would be better anyway.

              2 months, 27 days ago

              Thanks guys. The SGP projections indicate that he starts and plays regularly, but the predicted line ups don't. Still up in there air. Will make my own judgement.

            • Another Hoops
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 27 days ago

              The Fulham fans that I have spoke to seem to think he'll start and its between Lemina and Anguissa who plays with him. I'm starting with Bissouma myself but could easily switch to Reed if he is more nailed.

              Barnes was wretched in restart and cane off the bench as often as not. Confident in him?

            3. Another Hoops
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 27 days ago

              I think Barnes will average 60 minutes/ game but I'd expect him to start and hopefully get some returns for you. The fixtures for me are deceiving though, I'm just not a fan but your team looks fine and at least you have options to downgrade if you need to.

          5. Schliegs
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Few questions I have for all of you.

            1. Are people choosing brewster in the hope he goes to a fellow premier league club and gets minutes?

            2. Who is the best 4.5 mid?

            3. Will Davis play at all?

            4. Does anyone know much about Buur from wolves and is there a better 4m defender?

            cheers legends

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 27 days ago

              Yes
              Bissouma
              Yes
              No idea

            2. Another Hoops
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 27 days ago

              1. Not choosing him but if he gets a loan move I think a lot of people, including myself will see him as a great enabler.

              2. Bissouma or Reed.

              3. I heard that if Villa sign a forward which looks like it could be Watkins he'll be going out on loan. If he stays I think he'll get minutes but not enough for you to expect anything from. For me his ownership is at a level where he could easily drop in price too.

              4. Johnson/ one of the Palace boys are probably better options until we see how Wolves line up. I don't expect any of the 4.0's to do anything and only have Johnson in my team as an enabler and someone who could potentially get a clean sheet if I need him off the bench gameweek 1.

              Imo With same combinations, I would go with 352 replacing Kane with Bruno, which would give me more premium spots in midfield to accommodate more value players like from chelsea, city and United

            I think this year's Pukki or Ings would be from Leeds because of their style of play

            Which team do you think these kinds gems would come from this season?

            Some interesting potential/possible moves on the BBC Gossip piece this morning:
            Brooks -> Leicester
            Martinez->Villa
            etc

              Which Martinez

                • 9 Years

                Arsenal

                1. PogBruno
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 27 days ago

                  Leno 5.0 could be value then, can he score 10-15 more points than the McCarthy's and Ryan's for 0.5m more, aa 25 points per million is the norm in this forum?

                  1. Old Man
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 27 days ago

                    It would be good to get some confirmation about Leno being No 1 - it's what most expect anyway. Martinez at Villa could also be a decent option .... but not in GW1.

          10. Kizza_10
            • 6 Years

            Can I get people’s thoughts/advice on this team please. I know I’ve got big at the back I just see more value and maybe more attacking points in a 6 to 7 defender than most in that range in midfield.

              Digne could lose his freekicks n corners so I would lose him for a 5.0 or 5.5

                  Why have 8m in the bank when you can just have Auba over any of your junk mids and transfer him GW2. feels like being different for different sake

                    My best OR finish is 16, I think I know what I’m doing chef. High risk, high reward in the first couple of GWs

                          Ok maybe "junk mids" is too much but IMHO Auba has a much higher chance of outscoring each of Traore, Pereria & Bissouma so why take the risk?

                            Because it’s a game, and I don’t mind taking the risk.

                    Nope won’t be taking a hit to get both. Fernandes GW2, KDB GW3. I don’t wanna be in the bandwagon when Mo and Auba both blank GW1

                      Oh mighty one how wise you are. Pereira is a much better option and not at all likely to blank week 1. And Rodriguez will effortlessly dovetail with players he has never met before and produce a classic performance with no chance of a blank.

                          Though really the choice is Rodrigo over Auba isn’t it. Let’s have been looking great preseason and he has an extremely devastating record of returns over his career. He did of course score 4 goals in 27 matches last season - how much more could you possibly want?

                          1. Ohhhhh Gary Macca!

                            2 months, 27 days ago

                            Well seen as though Rodrigo is a Striker and Auba is classed as a mid on the game, that wouldn’t be possible would it numb nuts?

                              Numb nuts it is.

                              There’s no possibility of playing Auba ahead of Bissouma who is of course integral to every side - key selection. Stupid of me

                              How many weeks in did you decide not to continue in your “less excellent” seasons? Don’t suppose you started those like this?

                    Fish&chips is right - assuming you’ll be taking out Traore or Pereira for Bruno, why not at least have a premium for GW1.
                    Get Mané if you want to go against template.

                            Be sure to share your end season rank. No doubt it will be in the millions again instead of your fluke season.

                                More likely you just play a high risk game and give up the second it doesn’t work out which is clearly more often than not.

                                Yes everyone is very jealous of the guy who has so much going on in his life that he posts asking for advice then proceeds to tell everyone he doesn’t need it because he got a rank 16 years ago. Do you put it on your CV and have a 16 tattoo on your shoulder just so people ask you about it?

                        There's talk of Kean playing on the right this year.

                        Tbh DCL was living off scraps last year & really only performed for half a season. With proper service he could be explosive.

                  Thoughts on the following team and last open slot for a 5.0 defender would be appreciated...

                  McCarthy (Button)

                  Salah, Auba, Son, Bissouma (Foden)
                  Werner, Mitrovic (Davis)

                  1.5 ITB in order to do Son>Bruno in GW2

                  A) Egan
                  B) Coady
                  C) Fernandez
                  D) Other ideas?

                  2 months, 27 days ago

                  (1) Kane + Zaha/ Barnes/ Maddy -17.5
                  (2) Jimmy + Son - 17.5
                  (3) Werner + Alli - 17.5

                  Undecided on two places. The rest is quite settled. Please help me pick.

                    2 has the fixtures for the first 7 or 8

                      I would go kane+zaha

                    RMT i made a week ago

                    McCarthy - Nyland
                    TAA - C Taylor - KWP - Johnson - Davies
                    Auba - Son - Soucek - Greenwood - Ziyech
                    Vardy - Ings - Mitrovic

                      I like it. Is Ziyech fit?

                        Read reports that he might play the first game. Will have to monitor him closely.

                      How are Leicsture and Vardy doing with all the injuries?

                        Didn't know about the injury issues. Thanks!

                    Triple Southampton too much?

                    KWP, Armstrong & Ings

                    1. The_Fish
                      • 2 Years
                      2 months, 27 days ago

                      Have similar, but McCarthy instead of KWP. Insane value.

                    2. PartyPooper
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 2 Years
                      2 months, 27 days ago

                      Triple up at the start of the season not for me. I do think Southampton will do well though

                    3. PogBruno
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 3 Years
                      2 months, 27 days ago

                      Why not if you think they are the best players at that price point

                    4. ivantys
                        2 months, 27 days ago

                        triple is fine, they have one of the best values available.

                        Yes

                      Anyone else not backing a single new signing?

                        2 months, 27 days ago

                        The tried-and-tested approach does have merit, but it's hard to be be attracted by all these shiiny new toys.

                        Not unless you include CWilson. Was on Werner but backed off - not because of him but the bodged up attack-force behind him in GW1

                      Saliba and Vinagre are not options anymore? Any other 4.5m def have Justin and Kwp

                        Why are they not options anymore?

                        Any team could stop West Ham from being bottom table after 7 games?

                          Leeds or Fulham could compete

                        Best 5.5 defender?

                        AWB - could be good as we are looking to sign a LB
                        Tierney - Thought Arsenal has turned the corner defensively, but their preseason form worries me
                        Ake - rotation?
                        Any others?

                          Chilwell, not straightaway though
