Richarlison shakes off ankle injury to start for Everton

Richarlison (£8.0m) has overcome the ankle injury sustained midweek to start for Everton in Gameweek 4.

The Brazilian was one of many players discussed by Carlo Ancelotti in his Friday press conference, and it would appear that he has passed the fitness test.

That means Richarlison is free to make a fourth successive start in Everton’s front three, joined there by Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.5m), now owned by 41.6% of Fantasy Premier League managers, and James Rodríguez (£7.7m).

The Colombian, now sat in 30.3% of teams, has blanked in two of his first three league matches for the Toffees, but his last Goodison Park outing produced a 12-point haul.

However, Everton’s midfield trio is somewhat patched up today with Allan (£5.5m) and André Gomes (£5.5m) both missing out to a groin injury and a knock respectively.

They are replaced by Tom Davies (£5.4m) and Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.9m) while Abdoulaye Doucouré (£5.5m) makes his fourth successive Premier League start of the campaign.

Brighton arrive on Merseyside on the back of some positive displays, so Graham Potter has tempered his tinkering once again, making just one change to the side that lost to Manchester United.

Yves Bissouma (£4.5m) is back in midfield, while Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) and Neal Maupay (£6.5m) start in support of Aaron Connolly (£5.5m).

Meanwhile, popular full-back Tariq Lamptey (£4.6m), owned by 10%, retains his berth on the right-hand side of a midfield four.

Everton XI (4-3-3): Pickford; Digne, Mina, Keane, Coleman; Sigurdsson, T Davies, Doucouré; Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Rodríguez.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (3-4-2-1): Ryan; Webster, Dunk, White; March, Alzate, Bissouma, Lamptey; Maupay, Trossard; Connolly.

      Don’t think we’ll be playing up anywhere until Jackett slings his hook.

      Why would anyone do that?

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Because everyone wants him to go away !!

      You do know it's advice..... You're a grown-up, choose to take it or not.

      The amount of people on here that take no accountability

    4. AA

      Ings Vardy Jiminez Kane and DCL, given his form. 3 of these. Set and forget.

      This site was 99% either get rid of Werner or maybe don’t waste a transfer to get rid of him...nobody said Get Werner

      Don’t base decisions solely off other people you dunce

      Good day at fishing for Fudgy 😎

        A good day for Fudgy is doing Barbie’s hair in her luxury Dream House

  5. Amey

    I loved that too footed tackle from Ward 😆

  6. fr3d
    • 3 Years

    26.1% inactive teams already?

  7. Qaiss
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    Aubameyang didn’t need time to settle to the PL. Werner will come good but he looks like an absolute feather. Imagine him in games like Burnley away.

  8. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

    Jorginho 15pt’er 😎

    Get peno takers asap....

    1. TomSaints
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      5.1 as well. Great 4th or 5th mid and Chelsea look like they’ll get a lot of penalties

      1. Hey_Arnold
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        I did. He then missed a penalty then didnt play. So I took him out. And he scores 2. This game isnt enjoyable any more

    2. Pipermaru
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      I remember couple days ago somebody was slated on here for having "this useless" Jorginho in his squad, hope he didn't sell him.

    3. AC Yew
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Crap took -4 to get rid 10 mins before deadline

  9. Gudjohnsen
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    Dunne is out of the Burnley team.

    Dunne to Chilwell a no brainer then?

  10. Zim0
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    Is jorginho even assured a starting place? I'd like to get him as first sub over soucek

    1. Seanigula
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      No, but Kanté being injured helps

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Did he get injured today?

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Most weeks will be two from Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic

  11. Champ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    No need to panic. Still a decent chance Werner could reach 100 points this season.

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Same as Jorginho

  12. VAR United

    2. Pedram

      Can't wait for Werner to bang four goals against Southampton next week after everyone sold him.

      1. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Yeh he will as well. If he doesn’t in that game though then he’s out and shall never return. Hes been really poor.

      2. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Do you genuinely see a player capable of getting 4 goals in a friggin season, let alone a single game, from what you’ve watched so far?

      3. Seanigula
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        I think I’ve heard that for last 3 weeks

      4. BKR
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        and another ten-week drought!! Do you really think, he has a good work rate and influential?

    3. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 14 days ago

      At least that James no show means we can now cash in on the lamptey points off the bench

      1. D-Fens
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Small victories Woo!

        I’ve said that 2 GW in a row. Sick of it now

        1. fr3d

          You've said it for 3 years mate

            3 months, 14 days ago

            What?

            This was a reply fail to someone anyway, about Werner. So no, I haven’t

      5. Gudjohnsen
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Timo to be 8.9 before deadline in 2 weeks?

        1. The Son-dance Kid
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          The max a player can rise or fall in a single gw is capped at .3 if I'm not mistaken

      6. Weeb Kakashi
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        I think il give Werner the South game. Probably will play striker after Pulisic and Ziyech come back.

        1. AA
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          LOL

          haha ward theory has to be the funniest things I've heard

      10. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 14 days ago

        We would be mad to ditch Werner before Saints, there could be an assist or two in it for him. I say one last captain! Whos with me

        1. Here Comes The Son ★
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Also West Brom away, think of all that space in behind. Werner hatty triple captain.

          1. Trophé Mourinho
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 14 days ago

            true that, the smart kids will hold Werner

      11. Rolls-Royce
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        I guess the only people who kept Werner were the ones who didn't watch him play vs West Brom. Looked all over the place last time and the same again.

        1. Werner Brothers
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Still didn't click with his teammates i guess. Probably better when ziyech play

        2. Amey
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          I think Pulisic or Havertz will be good picks. Hopefully we'll have Pulisic at 8m in no time 🙂

        3. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          He looks like Messi. All over the place. Just not half as good.

        4. AA
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          And then there's a bit of pedantic analysis. Fixtures. Patience. Etc.

        5. teneighty
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          I avoid watching Chelsea play if I can.

      12. BKR
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Should we sell or hold Timo? Hope now all have a very clear picture? 🙂

        1. Pavsboot
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Fair amount of penalty taking options up forward. Think he needs the flick.

      13. bOttOmEdpOstrEpliEr.

        Brighton wins.

        2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • 7 Years

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Maybe Talksport - last few times I’ve tuned in to 5 Live (or 5 alive Sports Extra) for a midday kick off on a Saturday they haven’t had the live commentary

          1. Hey_Arnold
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            Usually commentary option on flashscores now.

        2. CHIBBY1990
            3 months, 14 days ago

            Should be on BBC Radio Merseyside if you can get it on DAB. Can’t listen from the online player though.

        3. Holmes

            To have a touch to ball inside opposition box 😛

          2. Seanigula
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            Is he getting loaned to a Championship side?
