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.

    Current GW3 team after prematurely pulling the trigger on Auba to Sterling:

    McCarthy
    Davies* // TAA // James // Egan
    Sterling C // James R // Rashford
    Martial // DCL // Werner

    4.0 // ASM // Reed // Ferguson

    Took a stupid hit last week in Pulisic to Rashford. Concerned abiut Davies now with the new signing.

    1.0 in the bank.

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

      I was also considering Davies to Saiss for a hit possibly.. think it pays off long term

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

    Could a GW3 fixture for Wilson against Spurs be better than it looks on paper? Because i
    of their fixture congestion I mean

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Definitely

  3. davies
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    I think my ASM/Adams replacements are going to be Podence/Bamford...

    Thoughts?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Adams to Bamford not a good option imo

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

        Why?

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 12 days ago

          mainly fixtures. Adams looked threatening last week I think he's a better pick than Bamford

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

      Not Bamford imo, fixtures aren't ideal

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

        Probably keep an eye on Watkins

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

        Understand that but this Leeds team is different to those at their level - they will play the same way in every game and their system always creates chances regardless of the opponent

  4. Flair

    So so reluctant to WC despite three 4.5s, Davies, White and Pulisic

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

      Is Pulisic up to 4.5 already?

    2. KGFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      What are you waiting for?

      Even I was against playing it but did it last night and have already made up 0.3 in TV in terms to price changes. Plus, there is a fixture swing now for Chelsea, Wolves as well. Also, I needed City and Everton and wanted to boot out my 4.5s.

      Play the WC when you think it can maximize returns for you. For me, I calculated this to be the best week.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 12 days ago

        I calculate GW10 to be the best week. Don't care about TV that much, nor am I that enthusiastic about the fixture swings. Already have Rodriguez and Werner (and Puli) with Sterling coming in this week. Not enthusiastic about a WC on 2 weeks of data.

    Bottomed.
    Wildcard this? *Players i want to remove

    McCarthy Steer
    *TAA *Davies Justin Mitchell Buur
    Salah *Auba James *ASM Bissouma
    Werner *Martial *Adams

    1. Bobby's Teeth
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Have a similar team as yours. I wouldn't remove either TAA or Martial and will give them some time. Maybe Auba to a city mid and Davies to Wolves def?

      That said, I will also reconsider my position once this complete GW is played out

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

    Soucek is going to score when i bench him 😀

    Will be a tricky candidate to handle. In all honesty he looked more threatening than Auba yesterday to me at least

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      I think he is a great option for a zombie team but too frustrating for active teams

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

      For my team, he is best first sub I could have ever wished for.

    3. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Yep very scary as I benched this week, you won't know when he'll return. At 5.0 I think he stays in my team

    4. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      The way I am looking at it is that you have to have an 11th player, at 5.0 just leave him in there and be surprised when you get points ... have a set bench and be happy when they do well and rise in price

      chopping and changing your final place in your team is bad for your FPL health 😉

  7. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 12 days ago

    How is this midfield?

    Salah Zaha JRod Pulisic Klich

    I reckon Klich is the best 5m range midfielder to own.

    1. GuenDoozy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Pulisic to City mid and downgrade elsewhere

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      JRod is a forward, do you mean James Rod ?

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Everton

    3. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      No City?

    4. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Looks good. Obvious absentees are City.

  8. Whiskerz
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Opinions please, on this WC draft.

    Guiata . 4.0
    Robbo . Saiss. Taylor . Mitchell . Burr
    KDB/Sterling . Bruno . Jamez . Zaha . Biss
    Jimi . DCL . Werner

    Trying to hit Palace and Wolves tasty fixtures. Not fully sold on double Everton, or Bruno but the quantity of penalties so far make me lean to him from Utd.

    1. Bobby's Teeth
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Looks solid!

  9. pstokes2010
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Is there a way of checking what percentage a player has been captained?

  10. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    How we looking?

    Tomoz Auba will be either Razz/Kev?

    McCarthy
    Trent, Egan, Robbo
    Auba, Soucek, JamesR, Zaha
    Vardy, Richarlison, Werner C

    Steer, Mitchell, Reed, Burr

    .4

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

      I like it and you’ve got some cash you can free up with one of your Pool defs, if you so wish.

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        That’s the plan to Keane or a 4.5 & move the cash to midfield.

        Pereira doing well for you?

        Weeks really high scoring so far & my Auba C failed again, should of gone Vardy or Richy!

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

          I’m really happy with my Pereira pick but I can’t lie when I say he was on shakey ground.
          Luckily I had Alli who was more easy to get rid of.

          I changed my cap to Sterling last minute, to get those points before anyone else. 🙂

  11. Sgt Frank Drebin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    I think Zaha could be the bargain of the season... He could easly end up on like 18 goals. For a 7m midfielder that would be crazy good value.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Be interesting if he picks up penalties as well now

    2. HollywoodXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Do you really think so? Zaha does this most seasons, has a brief purple patch and then disappears for a significant number of games. I’m not sold tbh.

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

        I'm lucky to have had him this last 2 weeks. Now I've moved him on. He probably will be good value, but Crystal palace are still Crystal Palace.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Why are you selling?

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

            Because I think that Rodriguez will outscore him moving forward. I've banked his points and now I'm selling while I'm ahead.

    3. Oooof
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Played really well in yesterday’s game.

    4. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Could also end up disappearing off the face of the earth again like last season

      At the moment it looks as if quite a few cheap mids deserve a run in our teams. That's the trick finding the two or three that stay the course.

      1. GuenDoozy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Hames, Zaha and Klich would be my top 3

            • 1 Year

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yeah Bruno was worryingly deep at times

      1. HollywoodXI
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        I think Bruno was forced to play deeper to cover for the shortcomings of a disgraceful Pogba

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 12 days ago

          When VDB came on he took the #10 role and Bruno dropped deeper too

      2. The Legend Squad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        KDB spent his season worryingly deep last year and ended up top scorer!

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          KDB is a class above any other midfilder in PL.

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            Will be interesting to see if Thiago Alcantara enters that conversation soon

        I think it’ll be a completely different prospect next time out - play what you know. Lesson learned

      Would probably look to dump one in the coming week or two, fixtures ahead don't look promising with current form.

    14(-4) from 3 cap played...Martial auba C soucek...soucek unlucky could have got an assist for the Gabriel handball..i don't know what the rules are,same scenario they gave penalty against Utd..

    1. Pukki Blinders

      Soucek could easily have 2 returns in 2 weeks. Looks solid at 5.0

    So pulled the trigger on Auba and Barnes > KDB and James for my 2 ft. Anything else worth a hit ?

    McCarthy
    KWP Taylor TAA
    Salah KDB (C) James ASM
    DCL Ings Werner

        then KDB>Sterling for a hit lol, would be priced out for those moves if kdb james goes up

    Oh Deus! What to do with Bruno?? Ended up playing so deep. Too knee jerk to get rid? Yet Utd looked awful.

    Back to Son depending on how spurs do?

    1. Pukki Blinders

      Can't get rid now with Brighton next up

        Disagree. Brighton looked good

      This is true

    Is Jrod enough in this team? Or is DCL more essential?

    Martinez
    Trent - Saiss - RJames
    Salah - KDB - Jrod - Klich
    Werner - Bamford - Jimmy

    Subs: Steer, Lewis, Justin & Bissouma

    Beating Wolves will be tricky, United's performance shows how important match fitness and a preseason is. No Laporte is a massive issue and they're our bogey team too...

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year

      Wolves love beating City too, wouldn't be surprised if City lose at all

    Worth watching Man Utd defence over the next couple of weeks. Surely Henderson gets a look in after yesterday. I don’t think DDG looked very good on the ball.

  24. No Professionals

    I need to stop making transfers out of fear rather than who I think scores better. Turned down Adams to DCL to get fernandes in because other people were.

    Does anyone know why United werent given their compulsory VAR penalty ?
    There was contact in the bix after all.

    Without pens Bruno might not be worth 10.5m, we need a statement from PL or refferes association to reassure us that it will be back to regular schedule from next game or we may have to sell portugese player.

      it depends on the part of the arm the ball touches - new rule

    I think this season is going to need bold transfers and not playing safe with the long game of waiting. Everton looked good in GW1 and you surely had to back them against WBA in the way you also surely have to back Chelsea against WBA next week ... we can’t pass up on 7 goal thrillers for the sake of a -4 .... the time of the dullard is over an and it’s time to chase the sunlit upside 🙂

    1. Flair

      WBA had 10 men in the 2nd half, they were okay before that. And Chelsea were poor vs Brighton. I wouldn't tear my midfield apart with hits to bring in Chelsea mids next week. Especially when I want a City mid

      1. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        I would and will bring in two Chelsea attackers maybe for Auba and Vardy, then swap them for KdB & Jesus the week after for the Leeds game,

        I don’t think there is much difference between KdB, Auba, Salah, Chelsea/Utd mid etc or Vardy, Werner, Jesus, Martial etc ... except the fixture and opposition and a bit of luck

        My team is not static and I do fully intend to break it up if Man City or Chelsea or Liverpool or Utd play teams that leak goals ... seems like a missed opportunity to me this season with so many poor defences shipping in goals by the bucket load to stick with the same players each game week

        ... he who dares Rodney, he who dares ... 🙂
