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.

    Listening to Gillette Soccer Sat. They said Trossard had a volley which Pickford spilled with a howler. So it was a shot right?

      looked like he was trying to hook the ball back into the box, but I guess who knows.

      it was going over the bar, wouldn’t have been given as a save ... so no, not an assist according to the rules

        If the keeper saves it though, then that’s on target? If a shot is going slightly wide and the keeper pulls off a save he gets a save point, no?

          it’s more of a ‘gather’ than a save whether on target or not and those aren’t given as saves ... but he didn’t actually gather it

          Maybe the assist will stand, it’s there now but I am surprised by it

      He mis-shot his volley and then Pickford fumbled it to Maupay.

        Nice one so it will stand

      It was a fumbled save, looked more like a cross but I dozed off!

    I think BT Sport just said it was the first PL goal to be both scored and assisted by a Colombian.

    You'd think Maupay would have learnt not to celebrate too early after last week. Knee sliding at 1-1 with no fans...

    Or am I just being a killjoy?

          as soon as i give up any aspirations of winning my ML i'm going to try to build a team consisting entirely of complete sh*thouses to mildly irritate everybody else in the league for the remainder of the season. 😀

      That's just the type of player he is and won't change.

          I’d feel smug for getting an 18 pointer from a 2% owned player.
