Quiet Calvert-Lewin continues ruthless streak as Rodríguez blanks again

Crystal Palace 1-2 Everton

  • Goals: Cheikhou Kouyaté (£5.0m) | Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.3m), Richarlison (£8.0m)
  • Assists: Andros Townsend (£6.0m) | Seamus Coleman (£5.0m), Lucas Digne (£6.1m)
  • Bonus points: Richarlison x3, Kouyaté x2, Digne x1

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.3m) went some way to strengthening his Fantasy Premier League appeal as he scored his fifth goal of the season in a 2-1 win at Crystal Palace.

The mid-priced forward was the talk of the town after netting four goals in his first two matches of the season, going into Gameweek 3 backed by 27% of Fantasy managers.

Face-to-face with a defence that had made a positive start to the season, keeping out Southampton and mostly limiting Manchester United, there were some mild fears that Calvert-Lewin’s incredible run might stutter at Selhurst Park – but it did not.

In fact, the player demonstrated something his Fantasy owners will be delighted with: the ability to have a relatively quiet game and yet deliver all the same.

“The performance was difficult. We had difficulties. The first half was quite good, we were able to play as we wanted. The second half was more difficult because Crystal Palace played a good second half putting a lot of pressure on us.” – Carlo Ancelotti

Having lit up his first two outings of the campaign, Calvert-Lewin was largely crowded out by Crystal Palace’s organised defence on Saturday afternoon. Rather than finding himself put through time, and time again, as was the case in Gameweek 2, Everton’s star striker was mostly restricted to half-chances and awkward snatches of the ball from free-kicks and corners.

However, on the rare occasion that he found some space behind Palace’s back-four, he did what all the best forwards do: he found the net.

Seamus Coleman (£5.0m) pounced on a rare lapse of concentration from Tyrick Mitchell (£4.1m) to get around the back in the 10th minute. He cut the ball back for an unmarked Calvert-Lewin who, despite barely getting a mention beforehand, slotted home coolly.

Calvert-Lewin’s increasingly ruthless nature bodes exceptionally well for upcoming fixtures against more favourable defences than what Palace offered on Saturday. Everton face Brighton, Southampton and Newcastle in three of their next four fixtures, each of those sides conceding three goals or more four times so far this season.

Meanwhile, Richarlison (£8.0m) continues to remind Fantasy managers that he is quietly waiting in the background as a viable alternative option in attack.

Not only was he lively as a left-winger in the 4-3-3 system once again, but there is also a chance that the Brazilian is now Ancelotti’s preferred penalty taker.

It was Richarlison who was handed the responsibility for the Toffees’ first-half spot-kick, even though he was sharing the pitch with top goal-scorer Calvert-Lewin and James Rodríguez (£7.6m).

For now, it is difficult to say that the former Watford man is the favoured taker for the whole club, considering that Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.9m). Obviously, the Icelandic international has lost his place in the team this season, so Richarlison’s chances are good, but we need to see Everton win a penalty when those two players share the pitch before we can categorically install the Brazilian as number one.

By comparison with Calvert-Lewin, James Rodríguez (£7.6m) was arguably the best player on the Selhurst Park pitch on Saturday and yet came away with no Fantasy rewards.

For all his skill, shine, vision and backing of 25.2% of Fantasy managers, the Colombian has now blanked in two from a possible three Premier League outings.

In fact, against Palace, Rodríguez enjoyed an afternoon of ‘assisting the assister’. It was his exquisite through-pass which found Coleman’s penetrative run before the right-back squared for Calvert-Lewin’s goal.

And in the 40th minute, it was Rodríguez’s excellent ball on the counter-attack which put Lucas Digne (£6.1m) through to force a hand-ball and penalty out of Joel Ward (£4.5m).

There were still a number of other opportunities for Rodríguez to get attacking returns, but they did not pan out for his ever-increasing ownership.

In the 29th minute, he played an incredible through-ball to Richarlison on the counter, setting the Brazilian through the middle. However, the forward’s poor first-touch, taken with his right foot when the left would have kept him more central, saw Richarlison drag possession out wide.

Then, shortly after half time, Rodriguez was fouled on the edge of the box and denied Digne’s request to take the direct free-kick. While the Frenchman rattled the crossbar with a fizzing effort in Gameweek 2, Rodríguez produced a tame effort aimed straight at Vincente Guaita (£5.0m).

Rodríguez also aimed a well-placed corner straight at Calvert-Lewin in the 51st minute, only to see the centre-forward screw horribly wide.

For all of Everton’s decent attacking play this season, there do remain some issues defensively. They have kept just one clean sheet in their first three matches of the campaign, despite facing newly-promoted opposition and a side that scored the fewest home goals last season.

With Brighton, Liverpool and Southampton the next three opponents for Everton, Digne owners may have to rely on his attacking returns in the coming weeks.

His assist at Palace came from forcing a handball from Ward, although he continues to do battle with Rodríguez for a say in set pieces.

After a lightning start to the season, Wilfried Zaha (£7.1m) recorded his first blank. While he continues to be deployed out-of-position as a centre-forward alongside Jordan Ayew (£5.9m), the FPL midfielder spent the last 15 minutes shifted back to the flanks after Michy Batshuayi (£ replaced Eberechi Eze (£6.0m).

However, that does not mean Zaha should leave the Fantasy radar, far from it. Gameweek 4 takes Palace to Stamford Bridge, to face a Chelsea defence that conceded three times to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday afternoon.

The fact that Zaha has three goals in as many outings this season, and only Manchester City have registered more away wins against the big six than Palace since May 2015 bodes well for next weekend.

Also worth considering is Andros Townsend (£6.0m) as he registered a third attacking return of the season in Gameweek 3. Having assisted against Southampton, scored past Manchester United and now assisting on Saturday afternoon, the former Spurs man has yet to blank in 2020/21 and was comfortably Palace’s best player in their most recent match.

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; Mitchell, Sakho, Kouyaté, J Ward; Eze (Batshuayi 75′), McArthur (Riedewald 88′), McCarthy, Townsend; Zaha, Ayew (Benteke 82′).

Everton XI (4-3-3): Pickford; Digne, Keane, Mina, Coleman; Gomes (Sigurdsson 76′), Allan, Doucouré; Richarlison (T Davies 90′), Calvert-Lewin, Rodríguez (Iwobi 86′).

    Wildcarding next week, but Any suggestions on what to do now?

      Werner to Ings perhaps

        Just read 0 FT. Stay steady then. Captain KdB.

      2. Gunner Boy
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Ings + Adams is too much. But worth a punt though if he is 100% Wildcarding

        1. Chandler Bing
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Yeah, I thought he had an FT. Was definitely worth it for a one week only punt if that was the case.

        2. merin

          Already have 3 SOU, unfortunately

    2. Gunner Boy
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I think for this GW you are set. No need to take any hits

      1. merin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Sorry, I do have 1FT

  2. Gunner Boy
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    What to do with this lot? 1FT, 1.1 itb

    McCarthy (WBA)
    AWB (TOT) TAA (avl) Justin (WHU)
    KDB (lee) Salah (avl) Son (mun) Podence (FUL)
    Mitrovic (wol) Werner (CRY) Adams (WBA)

    subs: Steer Mitchell Davies Bissouma

    1. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I'd take AWB out. United are just dreadful defensively. Keep Werner now that you've taken the fall already. He should do well against Palace.

    2. Old Gregg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I would probably roll the transfer. 2 transfers after the international break could be very useful

  3. Chandler Bing
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Which trio scores more in the next 5-7 GWs?

    A. Ings, Trossard and Salah
    B. Watkins, Zaha and Sterling

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Well A by like 300 points 😀

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      A for me

    3. Zilla
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      A

    4. Mok
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      A by far

    5. Gunner Boy
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      A by far

    6. La Vida Latte
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Why not sterling, trossard and ings?

      1. Chandler Bing
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Because if I get Sterling, I'll be getting him this week for the Leeds game. Otherwise I'd bring in Ings first and by the time I have the FT to remove Bruno for Salah/Sterling, Liverpool fixtures get tasty.

  4. Jellyfish
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Andros Townsend seems to be flying under the radar on here. Palace fix look great from GW5.

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Yea a bit annoying as I was 50/50 on him or Zaha and chose Zaha in the end. Oh well only been one week and one assist, Zaha hopefully comes good

      1. The Overthinker
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        A midfielder, playing as a striker, main man for his team, don't think Zaha is bad pick

      2. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Could be a great pick from gw5.

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

    When fit, which option?

    A) Pulisic (352)
    B) Ings (343)

    1. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      B for now especially considering Ings has penalties.

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

    I can’t find anything anywhere saying Podence is even a doubt. Is this just Twitter trolling or is there substance to this rumour?

    1. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      People gurssing impact of Semedo on the first XI

    2. DAZZ
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      The rumour popped up an hour before deadline mate. Trolls. I hope!

    3. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      The injury tweet was a lie but podence isn't nailed regardless

    4. TLF

      https://twitter.com/SkontoRigga/status/1309787935844204544?s=08

      Not trolling, speculation

      1. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Plenty of bench points if he is injured

    5. Lindelol
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Nuno finds out poor goal scoring record of Podence through FFS

  7. Trophé Mourinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Next week would you play Lamptey who has Everton away or KWP who has WBA at home. Picking KWP currently but benching Lamptey scares me

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

      If you have McCarthy play Lamptey. Clean sheets are a lottery at the moment so pick whoever has most assist potential

    2. yakirh
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      KWP

  8. The Overthinker
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    No doubt James Rodriguez is a brilliant player, but after each passing GW, he is turning out to be assist the assister, which makes him not a good pick in terms of FPL.

    Owners, your views on this? Do you plan to stick or will ship him out?

    Non owners, are you threatened/worried not owning him?

    1. L'Aeroplanino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      looks scary not owning tbh

    2. HurriKane
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      One more gw. If he does same id get rid

    3. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      While that is true his set piece delivery is insanely good + I'm still hoping Carlo moves him central

    4. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Don’t own, I went with DCL as thought he would benefit from a good form Everton the most and he is the cheapest. The only concern o has about Hamez was I assumed he had pens, but he doesn’t so I’m he doesn’t concern me at all

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 2 days ago

        God typos, hopefully that makes sense

    5. fantasyfog
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I'm thinking this

    6. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Sticking for now, Everton and him look good and I dont expect hauls from 7.5m llayer every week plus got more important issues to sort with my FT's.

    7. Fernando Torres
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Keep the faith. He will get over 180 points this season. Should have had a few assists yday. Points will come.

    8. Joey Tribbiani
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Im thinking of buying him! Own DCL and Digne atm

        1. Joey Tribbiani
            2 months, 2 days ago

            I woudn't be surprised if Everton had couple different penalty takers apart from Richa, somehow got this feeling

            1. gergin
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Rich took great penalty. It is his duties I guess.

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

          Less worried now he isn’t on pens. He will destroy some teams but be marked in others, pushed further back with him providing incisive passes. Yesterday was more about full backs , don’t forget cpl are very well organised/drilled.

        3. Better off with a pin and a…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          He's got direct free kicks and corners as routes to score as well. Hold for another week home to BHA and then it's an easier sell before they play LIV if he blanks again. He's still a great price.

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

          on set pieces, looks a threat ... it’s been 3 games and he has a goal and an assist

        5. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Throughout most of his career, his goal involvement (goal or assist) per game has been close to 1. I haven’t seen anything so far that makes me think this season will be any different.

        6. Giggs Boson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Non-owner here.

          Never even considered him and not worried in the slightest.

          Rodriguez drops very deep, helping to build up play. I don't think he'll get in the box often.

          I prefer the quiet uninvolved players, the ones just waiting to make runs in behind the defence. DCL and Richarlison have this role for Everton, but DCL is more central so I prefer him.

          The only spark of doubt I had was when I saw Magnus Carlsen had bought him. But then I comforted myself with data and didn't worry anymore.

        7. dekikide
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          His corners seem amazing, and he can shoot from distance..
          For that price tag, I believe it's worth keeping him a while longer.. I don't see him as an burning issue I need to solve..
          To bad he isn't taking penalties tho...

          He had a great run of fixtures last year and did f all in them, as soon as the difficult fixtures returned he started scoring again

            7 chances created. If Chelsea ever keep a clean sheet can see him getting a 20 point Gameweek at some point

              Completely agree..
              And I hope the defence will look better with Chilwell.. His offensive potential is great.. Worth keeping for 5£ IMO

          The headlines for the articles are rubbish.

          No humour no wordplay. Too long and to descriptive.

          I dont even read the articles anymore.

            I agree. I guess it’s to try and capture random google searches.

            From “Frisking the Fixtures” we now have “Who has the best and worst upcoming FPL fixtures.”

            If it ain’t broke, and all that..

              Ain’t it, like Wilson’s drop last night when he even scored in GW1.
              Very frustrating

              Seems crazy. Unless your bang on the money which people shipping Werner can’t be. He it any or expensive player in your team could get injured today or tomorrow

            Simon Stone: "Pep Guardiola has confirmed Gabriel Jesus will be out for a month with a ‘muscular’ injury. He didn’t discount possibility of Liam Delap starting for @ManCity today, although Raheem Sterling at number nine most obvious. Aguero not back for a few weeks yet."

              I think I may keep Werner for one more week. He could get a brace v palace.

              Chelsea need him to score soon before his confidence goes

                It could have been a different story yesterday but for the width of a crossbar. He was on the fringes for most of it and needs Abraham / Giroud scoring goals to get his true value. Mount & Havertz looked like better routes into the Chelsea attack

                  For sure? Defensively Alonso and Thiago were the highlight mistakes but James was just as clueless

                    He's nailed due to playing a TAA role in there. Cross spamming. But in FPL, I'd suggest spending that money elsewhere
