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.

    Does Hamez look like a season keeper based on today?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Can't base it off just today, based off the season so far you could argue either side

      Dalot would have been good for them

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 27 days ago

        As a United fan I would have loved to see him gone

    2. Limbo

      And two quality LBs with Nkounkou

    Hope Foden plays, got Lamptey first bench

  4. antoinehude

    A)
    Martinez
    Alexander-Arnold / Chilwell / Justin
    Salah / De Bruyne / Bruno Fernandes / James Rodriguez
    Calvert-Lewin / Bamford / Maupay

    B)
    Mendy
    Alexander-Arnold / Van Dijk / Chilwell / Castagne
    Salah / De Bruyne / Bruno Fernandes
    Calvert-Lewin / Bamford / Maupay

    So basically:
    A) Martinez / Justin / James Rodriguez
    vs
    B) Mendy / Castagne / Van Dijk

    I love Hamez

    1. Would Ed Woodward

      He's so enjoyable to watch, my new favourite non-Utd player which makes him my second favourite player overall to be fair.

    I have Werner,James(Targett as first sub) and Richarlison.Why i spent my time for this frustrating game?

      1. Bruce Lee
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Not worth spending more than 5 mins a week on it

      Its the nature of the beast sometimes - you can have a team of great players who do nothing FPL-wise week after week.

      I firmly believe decent players playing regularly for decent teams will always do well over the whole season - the rest of it is jsut a series of punts.

      Just a reminder there's no such thing as a season keeper if they aren't proven world class for multiple seasons (so KDB, Salah, Trent). Buy your guy anyway if you like, but don't be fooled.

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        True but I would say a Season keeper can also be someone who is underpriced like crazy and keeps making a mockery of their price tag, probably keep them until their price reaches to a price where they're not a bargain anymore

      1. jamiejoe
        • 5 Years

        I don't think he'll take Pickford's position...

        Another GW without owning Everton attacking assets. My slow descent into FPL implosion continues. Any one else on this path with me ? Please sound off below with a comment. After all, misery loves company.

        1. JBG
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Yeah, don't own any Everton players either, because it's Everton... I'm expecting them to turn into the Everton we all know. Pickford is trying his best at least, to do so.

          1. jamiejoe

            Looks a different outfit.

            I changed my mind on the evidence by gw2 and went for DCL and Rodriguez
