The best Everton players to sign as Calvert-Lewin posts big FPL points haul

Everton 5-2 West Brom

  • Goals: Dominic Calvert-Lewin x3 (£7.1m), James Rodríguez (£7.5m), Michael Keane (£5.0m) | Grady Diangana (£5.5m), Matheus Pereira (£6.0m)
  • Assists: Richarlison x3 (£8.0m), Rodriguez | M Pereira
  • Red cards: Kieran Gibbs (£4.5m)
  • Bonus Points: Calvert-Lewin x3, Rodríguez x2, Richarlison x1

Fantasy Premier League managers who jumped onto the Everton bandwagon early were richly rewarded with a goalfest at Goodison Park.

But it was largely only those who invested in the attacking assets who enjoyed watching a 5-2 win over West Bromwich Albion, which featured some clinical finishing, as well as questionable defending from both sides.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.1m) was the match’s top-scoring player, registering his first career hat-trick and taking his goal-tally for the season to four in two matches.

The Englishman appears to have finally picked up where he left off pre-lockdown. After a disappointing run of performances during Project Restart, Calvert-Lewin has put in two shot-laden displays reminiscent of Carlo Ancelotti’s early days at Everton.

“(Ancelotti) is on me every day for one-touch finishes and being in the right area of the pitch to find the back of the net. It’s nice that what we’re working on in training is coming off in matches.” – Dominic Calvert-Lewin

The mid-priced forward stalked the six-yard box like a true poacher all afternoon, getting just rewards for his presence in that area of the pitch.

The first goal came as Calvert-Lewin pounced on a loose ball after a defensive header, back-heeling it over the line. Then he slid in at the back-post to help Richarlison‘s (£8.0m) effort from a tight angle into the net. And he leapt highest to connect with a James Rodríguez (£7.5m) cross just after the hour-mark, turning it in with his back.

It could have been an even more memorable afternoon for Calvert-Lewin, as he missed an easy chance in the early exchanges, nodding a Rodríguez corner wide at the far post.

There will be those that point to Kieran Gibbs‘ (£4.5m) red card in first-half stoppage time as a key reason for Everton’s domination of this fixture and Calvert-Lewin’s 17-point haul. However, it must be said that West Bromwich Albion were guilty of poor defending across the entire fixture, not just after going down to 10 men. At the very least, that is good news for Chelsea attackers in Gameweek 3, while Southampton host the Baggies in Gameweek 4.

When Calvert-Lewin was showing this kind of form at the start of the calendar year, he was close to becoming fixture-proof, so considering the appealing nature of the upcoming fixtures, there is sure to be more to come.

Calvert-Lewin faces Crystal Palace (away), Brighton (home), Liverpool (home) and Southampton (away) between now and Gameweek 6, fixtures which are sure to encourage investment.

Fantasy managers may want to keep an eye on Ancelotti’s subsequent press conferences in the next week though, just to be safe. With the game tied up at 5-2, Calvert-Lewin was replaced by Alex Iwobi (£6.0m) in the 71st minute and sat down with an ice-pack on his hamstring. The player himself did report that all was fine after the full-time whistle, while his manager did not touch on the subject.

“Yeah absolutely, my hamstring’s fine.” – Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Calvert-Lewin’s 17-point haul is likely to overshadow impressive performances elsewhere in Everton team, which Fantasy managers should certainly make themselves aware of.

Despite not getting onto the scoresheet for the second match in a row, Richarlison was dangerous once again, his role in the Everton front-line yielding three assists. That made for a Gameweek 2 score of 12 points, just five short of Calvert-Lewin’s total.

The first assist came as he teed up Rodríguez on the stroke of half-time, it was his saved shot that was turned home on the rebound by Michael Keane (£5.0m) after the interval and Calvert-Lewin turned in his wide-angled shot just after the hour-mark.

Considering the price difference between Everton’s two FPL forwards, Richarlison is likely to be the least popular of the two for any Fantasy managers chasing the best avenue for investment. But with Richarlison’s constant threat, and appealing fixtures, his 11.2% ownership will be more than happy to hold.

However, there will be significantly more attention on Rodríguez, whose midfield classification could be enough to tempt Fantasy managers to pay a little bit extra for his services in comparison to Calvert-Lewin.

The Colombian international was equally as impressive against West Bromwich Albion as in his Premier League debut at Spurs, although against more favourable opposition, he was able to get on the ball much closer to the penalty area.

Furthermore, Rodríguez confirmed on Saturday that he will be giving Lucas Digne (£6.1m) a run for his money in terms of set piece responsibilities, as he finished the game joint-top for corners (five).

As a result, Rodríguez came away with a goal and an assist, making for a 12-point haul. Like was the case with Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin, it could have been an even bigger haul for the midfielder, as he was denied two more assists by his team-mates. It was Rodríguez’s corner that Calvert-Lewin put wide early on, while he might have got an assist for a Richarlison goal in the second half, had Calvert-Lewin not helped it over the line at the last.

Rodríguez’s presence in the team, both in terms of threat and creativity, is not only enough to justify considering him for Fantasy inclusion, but it is clear the likes of Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin are benefiting from playing alongside the former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich midfielder. In their first three matches in all competitions this season, Everton have totalled 64 shots on goal, an average of 21.3 per game.

“Dominic Calvert-Lewin started really well. Today he was the top scorer but Richarlison did really well and had a lot of opportunities. He had support from James, who is doing really well in this period. He has a fantastic desire to play and he loves to play with us.” – Carlo Ancelotti.

“As a centre-forward it’s nice to have (Rodríguez) when you think about the level he’s played at.” – Dominic Calvert-Lewin

However, while Fantasy managers had plenty to fawn over in terms of Everton’s attacking credentials, Ancelotti’s defence largely failed to live up to expectations set by last week’s win over Spurs.

While Allan (£5.5m) has added so much needed bite to Everton’s midfield, and Abdoulaye Doucouré (£5.5m) had a good afternoon in terms of mopping up loose balls in midfield, neither one could legislate for the errors that led to West Bromwich Albion scoring twice at Goodison Park.

Jordan Pickford‘s (£5.0m) distribution was poor, which set the tone among Everton’s defence in terms of giving the ball away. When West Bromwich Albion won possession high up the pitch in the 10th minute, Yerry Mina (£5.5m) allowed Grady Diangana (£5.5m) too much space and time to fire in the opening goal. 

Shortly afterwards, West Brom caught Everton napping at the back once again, Jake Livermore (£5.0m) left unmarked to rattle Pickford’s right-hand post.

While the Baggies were able to add a second goal via a Matheus Pereira  (£6.0m) free-kick in the second half, the sending off certainly eased the pressure on Everton’s defence, so it will be interesting to see how Ancelotti and their players respond for the trip to Crystal Palace. They also face Liverpool in Gameweek 5…

“The result doesn’t reflect what really happened on the pitch. In the first half, they (West Brom) were better but we had a good reaction to their goal and the game was easier in the second half. We have to be better at the back but I have seen more ambition, motivation and focus (in the new season) and we have to pay attention as every game can be difficult. I am happy with a great result but if you look a performance, there are lot of points in which we we can do better. We were without balance at the beginning but after two games it’s normal that everything is not perfect” – Carlo Ancelotti

Everton’s defensive issues ensured a frustrating afternoon for those invested in Digne, who picked up more than 300,000 new owners for Gameweek 2. As he conceded two goals and did not manage an attacking return, the Frenchman followed up last week’s 12-pointer with a round score of just one.

That said, there was still plenty to admire in Digne’s performance, with enough indicators of his Fantasy potential this season.

The Frenchman was a constant thorn in West Brom’s side, the most targetted player of any pass from Rodríguez on Saturday afternoon. As a result, Digne was heavily involved in Everton’s attacking play down the left-hand side and high up the pitch. While the Colombian is likely to reduce Digne’s set piece appeal compared to last season, the left-back remains involved. In fact, he crashed Sam Johnstone‘s (£4.5m) crossbar with a venomous direct free-kick around the hour-mark. Further big hauls are almost certainly around the corner…

Everton XI (4-3-3): Pickford; Digne, Mina, Keane, Coleman; Doucouré (Sigurdsson 65′), Allan, Gomes; Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin (Iwobi 71′), Rodríguez (Kean 78′).

West Bromwich Albion XI (5-4-1): Johnstone; Gibbs, O’Shea, Bartley, Ajayi, Furlong; Diangana (Edwards 71′), Sawyers (Field 75′), Livermore, M Pereira (M Phillips 71′); C Robinson.

    Anyone know anything about "André-Frank Zambo Anguissa" (£4.5m)?
    Got an assist today (v leeds) and may consider starting v Villa (h) next gameweek.

    1. TH14 - INVINCIBLE
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Played well and took up a more advanced position once they needed goals, but at 4.5 what's the risk is a good sub midfielder, Bissouma is comparable but plays much more defensive

    2. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Just realised Fulham have some great fixtures ahead, if he starts then may just put him in for the next 3-5 gameweeks.

      1. TH14 - INVINCIBLE
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Exactly right, that's why I kept mitro...

      2. doher.ty
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Doubt he’ll get you any points above 2 per game. 4.5 are 4.5 for a reason.

      3. Dthinger

        He doesn’t seem to be nailed

    3. TheSteel

      How nailed is Reece James? Played with Azpil and Alonso on the field.

      1. A-L
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        RMT tool gives a best estimate

      2. TH14 - INVINCIBLE
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        He's nailed on for this game, but can't see him being a long term option for Chelsea unless of injuries or he miraculously keeps up his form

    4. IRBOX ⚽

      Palace unlucky not to put 6 or 7 past United! Also, why didn’t Bruno Fernandes play? 😉

        That's an overreaction

        1. IRBOX ⚽
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Is it though? Looked like a bottom half team with that performance

          It really isn't. Palace looked like they could score everytime they came forward.

    5. BenDavies

      Ville Ronka benched Mitrovic
      Jay Eggersdorff transferred out Pereira for Harrison

      That is all.

        Why have Mitro if youre not gonna even play him vs Leeds

        1. BenDavies
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Agree, especially considering he played 4.5 defenders over him. Insane decision really.

            Btw TM I wanted to include your transfer but I decided not to XD Unlucky

        2 months, 12 days ago

        my colleague at work has 47 pts, but also has peiera and mitro on bench!
        he should be on a massive 70pts
        I feel for him. he's a leeds a supporter and doesnt take fpl seriously,
        i reckon he didn't put mitro in as he's playing against his team

        1. BenDavies
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          haha i can't handle those kind of people, they would frustrate me just seeing their team. they're the real winners though as they don't get so invested in the game!

          1. All about the galacticos
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            I like players like that, they put together very interesting teams.
            part of me used to be like that, pretty much played played scholes every game of the season
            the "experts" kind of have the same 6-8 players

      5. COK3Y5MURF
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

          • 6 Years

          if he did on wc, it makes sense or net neutral for a 5.5 placeholder
          if not on wc, I can't see that it's the most pressing transfer

          If Spurs are atrocious again later I'd consider it but their fixtures are still favourable. Rest of the team is good

          No way. Most of team good. I have Dier too and wonder why, but wait and see, better to save we for real emergency or when clearer what's going on with Utd City Chelsea etc.

        Rodriguez could be Zaha

          Tbh, I wouldn't be confident that the WC team would score more points than the previous one.

          If looking for transfer value then would consider it.

          Palace could easily regress, you know how frustrating Zaha can be. But wait until Monday to decide.

        Is it true that Bale is already injured and won't be available for a month?

        1. BenDavies
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          It's just rumours at this point. Surely he's been training in Madrid and keeping fit as per his contract so he should be fine to play games here. They wouldn't sign an injured player.

            They might have... Chelsea bought Chilwell, knew Silva would need a couple of weeks rest... for example. It's going to be a long intense season.

          Hahaha yep, although he was shipped over with a pre-existing injury. Talk about damaged goods! I think spurs are really rolling the dice now

        On a WC

        McCarthy (Steer)

        Taylor - Justin - TAA - Saiss (Mitchell)

        Zaha - Salah - KdB - James (Anguissa)

        Werner - Jimi (Brewster)

        0.4 ITB

        Thoughts about Zaha? And should I find a way to fit DCL in?
        Thanks!

        1. BenDavies
          • 7 Years

          I like Zaha in this new and improved Palace team. That's a great team. I think Jimi will get a truckload of points over his upcoming games so that will offset any DCL points imo. Can't have everyone.

        Soucek to Podence for a hit? Price fall would lock me out of this...

          I wouldn't

          Not enough of a priority to do for a hit imo

          Podence looks promising, but not worth a hit

        Auba-> KDB (or possibly Sterling).
        Anything else standing out?

        McCarthy.
        Shaw, TAA, Ayling.
        Auba, Salah, Son ASM.
        Werner, DCL, Adams.
        Button, Bissouma, Mitchell, Justin.

        2. BenDavies
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          I'd get Adams out as soon as possible. Rest of the team is fine once Auba -> KDB is done.

        Well Auba has not gotten off to a great start has he? I was very worried not having him last night but only 5 points from him should be considered a massive fail.

        1. BenDavies
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          He's always been like this though, or at least for the past season he was basically a wide winger and would frustrate often. He's a flat track bully and gets his goals in clusters.

          1. TH14 - INVINCIBLE
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Bit harsh to call him a flat track bully, he's scored plenty goals for a poor Arsenal in big matches. Can only imagine in a better performing Arsenal his tally to rise no matter the opposition

      17. BenDavies
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        I hope Son is having a good night's sleep right now. Important to rest up for his big day today.

        Was looking at WC’ing this week, but after going Auba and Adams > KDB and DCL (-4), I’d be curious to know if I still need to WC? Would be doing it to bring Wolves players in and change my GK.

        Johnstone (Button)
        TAA Robertson KWP (Justin Mitchell)
        Salah KDB Rodriguez ASM (Bissouma)

      22. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Davies to Saiss for a hit?
        Or Reed/Bissouma to Podence for a hit?
        If Davies doesn't play, I'll have to start Bissouma.. so it's basically like having a 2 pointer, even a small return from my replacement is enough to break even.

        1. Lav
          • 4 Years

          Saiss

        RMWCT please folks:

        Pope
        Digne Coady James
        Salah KdB Rod Klich
        Werner Jimenez DCL
        (PF Lampty Bissouma Mitchell)

        1. Lav
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Pretty much as the inform players. James will eventually lose his spot at the back, and Coady is only good for a cs.

          1. jia you jia you
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Thanks for the feedback mate...yeah I want Saiss but some Wolves fans reckon that there's a chance that he loses his place whereas Coady is 100% nailed

            1. Lav
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              Looses his place to Marcal?

            2. Klaren
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              I initially thought he was at risk too with the Marcal signing but with Marcal playing LWB, I don't think there is too much risk for Saiss.

              1. Dthinger
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 12 days ago

                  • 8 Years
                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  A name from the past - I thought he'd gone to Leicester reserves. Must have been a loan. Anyway, no threat.

                yeah, I think so too and I might actually change Coady to Saiss...far more upside!

                It still depends on this Telles fella. If United go cold and he ends up at Wolves, it might be bad news for Saiss-owners (me). Two game-weeks to hang on before TDD.

          Aren't you looking to sell Davies though? With the reguilon signing

          1. fcsaltyballs
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Yes good point, I was blind sided by his fixtures but you’re right he was probably priority... so

            Aub Davies >> KDB Saiss ??

        2. Lav
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          I had a similar side, Egan and Justin the only differences in the xi. I WCd.

            1. Lav
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              WC not final but McCarthy, Davies, Coleman, Auba, Son, ASM, Ings, Gordon all out for me.

        How does the Reguilon signing effect Davis minutes goinf forward? Is he less likely to start now?

        1. Lav
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          I reckon so.

        • 4 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        3.2m OR, the season could have not started any worse. Really tough to take after a 6k OR finish last season, they are rare but those are the standards you always want.

        Early days, but have to take action and turn it around. WC now active, clean slate and we move. Positivity. Hope the seasons gone well for you DZ! 🙂

          How do you think Chelsea line up today? I really don't want to see Kai tracking back to mark Robbo all game

          1. Lav
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            I reckon it has to be 4-3-3 to match Liverpools midfield. If we play 4231, Mount will 100% be at the 10 due to his workrate. I agree though I really do not want Kai on the right, but there seems to be no confidence in CHO so sadly I think he will be there. I would be tempted by Werner off to the left, Kai F9 personally.

            1. zøphar
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              I like werner left with giroud as the focal point but Kai at RW again will make me cry

            2. Heskey Time
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              I was thinking maybe a 343 but we shall see. Personally that’s how I would line them up given the players available

              1. Andy_Social
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 12 days ago

                It will still be a work in progress, with Barkley hopefully adding a bit more nous than RLC did. It will take another game or two with Ziyech and Pulisic back before we see them singing.

          2. tokara
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Havartz was neither attacking nor defending.... He wont track back

            I expect a Pool win

      27. pakornk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        What is my priority?
        A. Davies to Saiss
        Or
        B. ASM to Podence

      28. pakornk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Would you have double Wolves in Podence and Saiss?

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years

          Some will have Jimmy too.

        2. Pep Roulette
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Going with Jimmy & Podence!

        3. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Yes definitely with those fixtures. Even a 3rd one could work.

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Yes. I've got Jimi and Saiss, and long contemplated Podence before plumping for Klich as he's more nailed and on pens. But Podders would be my next choice.

      29. Heskey Time
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Wildcard team here we go:

        Martinez
        James saiss Robertson
        Salah KDB Hamez zaha podence
        Werner martial

        Steer, Mitchell, 4.0, Brewster

        Thinking with jota at pool now Brewster can get his move

        1. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Slightly risky with that bench but good other than that. I prefer Jimenez over Martial after today's performance but not much to it, Martial could do well too.

          Martinez fixtures are not great so that could be a slight issue.

        2. Pep Roulette
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Looks good! Jimmy over Martial though without any doubt!

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Martial will outscore steady-eddie Jimenez over time, but for now I'd invest (I HAVE invested) in Jimi.

          How long are we talking about? I've gone for Werner as a season-keeper. Jesus might be better short-term while Chelski bed in, but in time Aguero will be back.

          1. tokara
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Short term but werner does not impress me
