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.

    Absolutely perfect technique to execute that shot on the wet grass half volley

    Lamptey first on the bench, need Saiss & Podence to both start!

      Genuinely think he's a world-class footballer I'm not even being reactionary

        I know the word World class is thrown around too often these days but I've always rated the lad personally

          100% agree. Spent too long in the shadows. Could be up thier in top 5 players in the world with some consistent playig time and staying injury free.

    2. NWA

      should have left Madrid earlier

      Indeed, puts my HRod to Barnes move in jeopardy......

  10. Crucem Sanctam Subiit

      HT subs were going to be obvious this year with the heavier fixture schedule.

    • Bartowski
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Clearly an assist for DCL. You can see the ball veer slightly as he let out a tactical fart to push it into the path of Rodriguez.

            • 4 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            If you consider the broader picture that's not a terrible move until the end of the GW and it's not a one week game

            1. UNDERWORLD7
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

            FPL is a cruel mistress, I sold both Son & Vardy for hits in consecutive weeks before they both hauled 🙂

    • Pep bites Kun
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Just in - missed the Chelsea game. I see lots of goals, but still no Werner. How did he play guys - am I just being stubborn keeping or there are positives?

      1. Ragabolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        No positives

      2. ZLNR
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Stubborn but it is Southampton next (non-owner)

        Ffs overreacting but definitely consider swapping

      Best Everton player in their history. Lol

      Averaging 4 goals a game again. Will increase at Elland road

      James on penalties now that Richa is injured?

      1. King Mo

        Siggy

    • King Mo
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Watching Brighton makes me feel a whole lot better about owning Zaha next gameweek. Pathetic defence.

        Well I guess you didn't watch Palace and Zaha earlier then

        1. King Mo
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Away to Chelsea? What expectations did you actually have there?

          1. Werner Brothers
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            A goal or two from zaha will be nice.

            1. King Mo
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Would've been nice but you're not exactly expecting a Zaha haul away to Chelsea.

              1. Werner Brothers
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                Why not?
                Chelsea is weak defensively, i expect them to lose anyway but not without a goal or two.

                1. Werner Brothers
                  • 6 Years
                  1 month, 25 days ago

    • Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years

      Not pulling the trigger yet but is Digne to Trent the move? Don't need to take a hit for it either.

      1. Eh, just one more thing ...

      Lamptey substitution injury or tactical?

    • Noah’s Ark
      • 8 Years

      James is going to be one of those players that gets points regardless of stats.

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

        Starting to think mr stats doesnt watch the games, and actively avoids Vardy.
