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.

    Why is Siggly hogging Digne's set pieces??

    1. Leonard hatred
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      he's captained himself in FPL

    2. Neevesy
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Because he knew you had Digne.

      Or.... He has a great track record over 7 odd seasons at set pieces.

      But defo the first one.

    DCLs EO?

  4. IRBOX ⚽

    DCL golden boot this season.. I can’t see why not. Everton have one of the best xG in the league, if only he had pens

      I'm thinking of getting richa in after liverpool game to double up with him. U think it's a good idea?

      1. RamaJama

        1 month, 22 days ago

        Hasn’t scored yet this season, only 1 from pen. Today Siggy’s on pens. And dcl has scored 6

        1. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          3 fpl assists though. He's injured now so guess I'll keep Jimmy for a while

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Doesn't need them.
      I'm sure if he's in the race, would get pens in last few games too

    3. Manani
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      only 4 games in. Of course if he can keep it up then yeah. Way too early to call when he has history of being a hot and cold (see end of last season)

      Oh ffs. Werner to DCL is so obvious that it will inevitably backfire.

      Wanna do it now but IB looms

      1. Flair

        May as well even with Liverpool up next

      2. Slam

        I prefer Werner home to Southampton 100%

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Really? We said that about WBA too....

          Price swings will hurt

          1. Slam
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            That’s the main issue but yeah I think I would.

            Liverpool are a tough nut to crack but prices do move quick. If I had Werner I’d hold one more game though but that’s just me

      3. Drizz ✅
        • 8 Years

        No point now, 0.5 more expensive was easy decision gw1.

          This!!!. Why are England managers so fickle?? Carroll, Shelvey, Barkley; the list goes on.

        Surely I have to press WC button now..? 2FTs and 1.0 ITB

        McCarthy, Steer
        TAA, Justin, Dallas, Vinagre, Ferguson
        Salah, KDB, Hamez, Podence, Bissouma

        • 3 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Werner Hamez Taylor to DCL Son Chilwell (-4)....

        Does tempt, depending on how the weekend / IB go. Leaves 0.5 ITB too

        Looks great now 🙁

          Why wait? Probably double or triple rise over the international break

            • 2 Years

        I was thinking of dcl > kane -4 for next gameweek to get ahead of the fixture swing of both teams. Surely madness?

        1. Sarri-ball
          • 11 Years

                Even if this game was perfect, people like you would pick holes in it, because that’s what negative people do.
