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.

    Not getting DCL in GW2 already looks like a fatal error.

      likewise. best time to get off is after you've got the points + price rise from him before he regresses.

      It wasn't even a foul 🙄

        "Richarlison shakes off ankle injury to start for Everton"

        Um, no

      2. Jon Walter's Hatty

        Just cos it wasnt a foul doesnt mean he knew what he was doing. Clever on his behalf

      Seriously - great tackle.

    Maybe will just jump on Werner to DCL now despite the IB then... bank price rises and avoid inevitable drops from that German dud.

    2FT so could cover some injuries with bits :/

      Siggy is first choice over Richarlison

    Well Werner to dcl for hit paid back. And he can easily get more in the next 70 min

  14. DA Minnion

    Did Werner to Dcl after game week 1. What a decision that was.

    Richarlison injured - doesn't have to go and play for Brazil over IB... 😉

  17. Niho992

    Really great decision by Ancelotti to play Richarlison who isnt 100% fit

    1. Hawk
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      With his wealth of experience, he should have known. Ankle injuries isn't something you shake off in less than 4 days.

      1. Niho992
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Yup

      My 4-hit to switch Rich for Dom not so bad now.

      Time for Rodriguez to come to the party

        He's not coming, not welcome

    • davies
      • 6 Years

      It made sense to start Lamptey over Dunne, right?

        • 11 Years

        Dunne won't start

      Rodriguez is so pointless

        What?

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 28 days ago

          FPL

        He is at the heart of this Everton revival. Incredible creator and presence on and off the pitch

        1. La Roja
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          I think he is saying he isn’t a good pick for FPL

        2. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 28 days ago

          FPL

            Fair enough! I’m not sure to be honest, still looks dangerous

      Cavani to Manutd

      As Liverpool fan must admit that watching James playing is one of the most beautiful things imo. Baller.

    • Super Saints
      • 4 Years

      How can the ref's keep getting it so wrong!?

    • james 101
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      What’s the deal with James not playing today?

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Azpi is a better defender.

      2. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Azpi more solid defensively, and now chilwell is nailed at left back it’ll be hard for James to get regular PL starts

      Which double transfer is best, both for free:
      A) Werner+Dier to Vardy+Chilwell
      B) Werner+Dier to DCL+Robbo (double up with Trent)

      1. Super Saints
        • 4 Years

        Wait
