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.

      I’m thinking TAA / Castagne / wolves defence / lamperty then its Everton or spurs defence for 5th spot

      Ankle not healed apprently. Tackled by Lamptey in the first half.

      Chances of James getting 3 bps if it finishes like this? (Assuming he keeps creating chances like crazy)

      1. Pukki Party
        • 3 Years

        Possible

        The whole vibe in this Everton team seems very healthy. Really loving watching them play.

        Also Hames and DCL owner!

        1. Daniel - Go Granville

          Hope they win the title ahead of Liverpool

            Could be worth a little bet...

            Even that dance they did to celebrate. Cringe, yes, but a sign of a team really vibing.

        Seriously considering Digne to Robertson. Love Digne's attacking threat but with that idiot Pickford between the sticks, Robertson for 1m extra seems a no brained.

        1. Zim0
          • 2 Years

          Digne doesn't take set pieces anymore. Take him out

          With better center backs, Evrton would have much more clean sheets. Mina is awful. Him scoring doesn't erase all the goals resulting from his mistakes

        I have never saw such an improvement in a striker such as DCL this year.

        Carlo is genius trusting in him.

        He really is Inzaghi

        1. jamiejoe
          • 5 Years

          It's incredible... When will Hindu Monkey go for him too?

      • Zim0
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Hamez is like KDB from 2 years ago from an fpl perspective. He'll get around 190 points by the end. Could have been more if he was on pens.

        1. Daniel - Go Granville
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          No he won't. Goals are worth 5 and assists e

          1. Daniel - Go Granville
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            *3

          2. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            He'll have a lot of assists though. Let's say 180-190.

            1. Brosstan
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              That's a lot of assist, I doubt he will get that many

        2. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Gee that's optimistic

          1. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            I don't have him. I'm just saying what i think will happen

        3. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Kdb probably isn't the right comparison. Let's say prime Ozil when he got 200 points.

        4. jamiejoe
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          He scores 1 in 3, which is double the rate of Zaha.

          it was from a mistake by the keeper, not a saved shot ... expect it to be removed

        1. Daniel - Go Granville
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Werner apparently is due. And has Southampton 😉

        2. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year

          DCL has Pool next. Werner has high line Soton...

        The Merseyside derby this season might arguably be the most exciting fixture of the entire season..

        1. F4L
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Depends if Pool can score early. Ancelotti would take a 0-0 like they got last season.

          Same as FPL I think.

        Can't get in DCL ahead of Pool.... He will rise to 8 before he's in my team 🙁

      • F4L
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Trossard was crossing, why does that assist stand?

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Interesting, intended target i guess. Pickford did get a touch between though

          1. F4L
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            I just don't see how Maupay was his intended target. Pickford massively changed the direction of the ball. FPL not being consistent again.

            1. Pukki Party
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Totally agree with you.

            2. IRBOX ⚽
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Unfortunately doesn’t have to be intended target. A keeper who saves a shot from an intended scorer which is then slotted by the follow up.. the assist will always be awarded to the original shooter

              1. F4L
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                Yeah I agree with that, but I thought Trossard was trying to cross. I guess it's been counted as a shot.

              2. Pukki Party
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                Not sure it was on target though

      • PartyPooper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Got Reece James on WC, because I thought he was nailed. So that was a good start to the GW 🙁
        Any reason why he didnt start? is he now a rotation risk?

        2. Ruinenlust
          • 2 Years

          Azpi is better than him

        3. NWA
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Chillwell back + Azpi startin. Seems like it ll be difficult for him to start again if Lampard keeps same formation

        4. F_Ivanovic
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          It didn't take much to figure that he was a potential rotation/straight up dropped risk

        Its got to the point where every goal scored by a player i dont own is irritating

          Stop playing then. It's a game and meant to be fun.

          Hurts more when the player is owned by everyone (DCL)

          Need a lamptey's goal/assist to complete a good investment for me in this match. Was contemplating to start him or put him on the bench, then again my defence choices was limited.

          How is that a Trossard assist? Ridiculous

            Maupay scored the rebound...

              It was a cross not a shot

          Lamptey looks average to be honest

          Best pick to replace Richarlison up to 8.0?
          a)DCL
          b)Mitrovic
          c)Maupay
