Rodríguez favouring Goodison Park ahead of home Merseyside derby

Everton 4-2 Brighton

  • Goals: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.5m), Yerry Mina (£5.5m), James Rodríguez x2 (£7.7m) | Neal Maupay (£6.5m), Yves Bissouma (£4.5m)
  • Assists: Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.9m), Rodríguez, Alex Iwobi (£5.9m), Abdoulaye Doucouré (£5.5m) | Leandro Trossard (£6.0m), Solly March (£5.0m)
  • Bonus points: Rodríguez x3, Bissouma x2, Mina x1

James Rodríguez (£7.7m) is fast developing a taste for playing at Goodison Park, as he registered a second successive home double-digit haul in Gameweek 4.

The Colombian has shown shine in every Premier League outing so far this season, but he has exhibited a considerably more ruthless streak when operating on Merseyside.

Against West Bromwich Albion in Gameweek 2, Rodríguez found the net and provided an assist, while he scored twice on Saturday afternoon and provided the cross for Yerry Mina‘s (£5.5m) first-half effort.

HOME COMFORTS

It means that the former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich midfielder is now the highest FPL points scorer in home matches for Everton this season, even outperforming the popular Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.5m) by 30 to 25.

Rodríguez has, of course, been helped in that respect by his midfield classification, which awards more points for goals and clean sheets but, as of Saturday afternoon, he has more goal involvements at home than Calvert-Lewin too (five to four).

But an analysis of his underlying numbers between home and away matches so far this season is also quite revealing for Fantasy managers.

Considering the disparity in FPL points scores between home and away matches for Rodríguez, it will be interesting to see how he fares between now and Gameweek 9.

This period brings Liverpool and Manchester United to Goodison Park, while three of Everton’s next five matches are away from home. Thankfully for his growing ownership, the next road trips take them to favourable opposition. in Southampton, Newcastle and Fulham.

DOMINANT DOMINIC

Right now, Calvert-Lewin couldn’t care less about the venue or opposition, having now scored against every defence face so far this season.

Now owned by 42.4% of Fantasy managers, the Everton forward is bested only by Kevin De Bruyne (£11.7m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) for popularity.

That figure seems certain to rise between now and Gameweek 5 considering another blank for Timo Werner (£9.4m) on Saturday afternoon. The German international is still in 25.3% of teams but replacing him with Calvert-Lewin is perhaps the easiest upgrade in FPL right now.

A home match against Liverpool hardly seems offputting for the former Sheffield United man either, considering the Reds have kept one clean sheet from a possible three at the start of 2020/21.

INJURY IMPACT

Another encouraging facet of Everton’s was the fact that they controlled proceedings in Gameweek 4 despite suffering from a slew of injuries.

They came into Saturday’s meeting with Brighton short of Allan (£5.5m) and André Gomes (£5.4m), who had anchored central midfield effectively in the first three matches of the season.

However, Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.9m) and Tom Davies (£5.4m) filled those roles comfortably, the former putting up a smart assist for Calvert-Lewin’s opening goal.

Elsewhere in the team, Richarlison (£8.0m) spent the second half of the week trying to shake off an ankle injury sustained against West Ham. He did manage to shake off the knock in time to feature in Gameweek 4 but suffered a recurrence of the knock in the 25th minute.

But, as was the case with Sigurdsson, Richarlison’s replacement Alex Iwobi (£5.9m) slotted into the front-three relatively seamlessly, earning an assist for Rodríguez’s first goal of the afternoon.

Everton weren’t even particularly jarred by losing Seamus Coleman (£5.0m) to a hamstring issue in the second half either. Unfortunately for Fantasy managers, the veteran full-back’s absence is unlikely to unlock a budget defender. With Jonjoe Kenny (£4.4m) also injured, Ancelotti’s solution to Coleman’s injury was to move Davies to right-back and bring on Fabian Delph (£4.9m) to cover in central midfield.

Of course, Everton have the international break to potentially recover some of their key personnel, although it seems that even if they had to draw on second-string options, they would not necessarily suffer as much as was first feared ahead of Gameweek 4.

ONGOING DEFENSIVE PROBLEMS

That said, Everton’s defence still continues to disappoint those searching for clean sheets this season. 

In the first four matches of the campaign, the Toffees have recorded just one shut-out, in arguably the most challenging fixture. Since the 1-0 win at Spurs, they have conceded twice at home to West Bromwich Albion and Brighton.

Jordan Pickford (£5.0m) was the chief culprit for Brighton’s first goal as he failed to hold onto Leandro Trossard‘s (£6.0m) shot, dropping it at the feet of Neal Maupay (£6.5m).

The goalkeeper nearly gave away another goal just after the hour mark. Solly March (£5.0m) produced a cross from the flanks, which Pickford simply punched straight forward into the chest of Maupay, lurking on the edge of the six-yard box. The only reason it did not end up in the back of the net was probably that the Brighton forward did not expect it, but also because of an impressive last-ditch block by Davies.

“I think this is not the right place to talk about Jordan. If I say something it will be when he comes back, I am going to talk to him.” – Carlo Ancelotti

The other source of Everton’s defensive issues makes for interesting reading for those sizing up their Liverpool assets for Gameweek 5.

UNDERAPPRECIATED SEAGULLS

Even though Brighton suffered a third defeat of the season, their Fantasy assets are continuing to offer great value.

Perhaps because of their disappointing results, the form Seagulls options remain largely unpopular, which increases their differential potential.

The penalty-taking Maupay already has four goals and one assist to his name this season, and could have added even more to that tally in another energetic performance at Goodison Park on Saturday.

However, despite pulling in 32 points in the first four Gameweeks, only 4.1% of Fantasy managers have been convinced by the former Brentford man, who faces Crystal Palace (away) and West Bromwich Albion (home) in his next two matches.

Trossard has been another reliable figure in Brighton’s spirited attack this season, registering attacking returns in three of his four outings thus far and, of course, probably should have scored a hat-trick against Manchester United.

Despite that solid record thus far, the Belgian is owned only by 2.0% of Fantasy managers. 

Meanwhile, March now has an attacking return of each of his last two Premier League appearances but is selected by just 0.7% worldwide.

Meanwhile, Tariq Lamptey (£4.6m) owners were left shorthanded once again. For the second time in four matches, the right-back was taken off before the 60-minute mark. Against Everton, this was reportedly due to a tight hamstring, which forced him off at half-time, to be replaced by Joël Veltman (£4.4m).

“(Lamptey) had tightness in his hamstring. We don’t know Tariq so well so we just wanted to make sure we didn’t put him out and risk him out for a big period. It was precautionary more than anything.” – Graham Potter

Everton XI (4-3-3): Pickford; Digne, Mina, Keane, Coleman (Delph 58′); Sigurdsson, T Davies, Doucouré; Richarlison (Iwobi 25′), Calvert-Lewin, Rodríguez (Walcott 78′).

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (3-4-2-1): Ryan; Webster, Dunk, White; March, Alzate (Groß 82′), Bissouma, Lamptey (Veltman 46′); Maupay, Trossard; Connolly (Lallana 66′).

      He's only played 7 minutes and Lampard said he's going to carefully manage his minutes:

    Absolutely ridiculous to be making assertions about Rodriquez's home and away form after 2 home games and 2 away games. Stopped reading the article after that.

    I only read scout notes from Neale and Wardale these days. Its a sad state of affairs - it feels like I'm wasting half of the money I fork out for membership fees.

    1. pingissimus

      But it's not as if he had two home fixtures against two of the most open teams in the league and away fixtures against two of the most organised defences.

      That would be silly. 😀

        I'm sorry to say it but I am paying for this after all. I also pour praise on people when they do excellent work so it's not a case of me being negative all the time. I've written community articles so I know how hard they are to write, but for certain authors the quality is not up to the required standard.

      If that is how you feel, come back in 4 weeks time, or how about GW38 when all teams have played home and away to get a real sense of how they perform.

      Stats are essentially subjective depending on who interprets them, we can only go off what we have currently.

        No matter which way you flip the pancake 2 home games and 2 away games tells us little to nothing.

          Naturally, we are dealing with a relatively small sample size at this stage, just two matches home and away. Furthermore, we must remember that Everton’s first two visitors to Goodison Park (West Bromwich Albion and Brighton) certainly count as more favourable opposition than Spurs and Crystal Palace anyway.

            Choosing that main picture for the article is going to bring down non owners of Hamez who are having a bad gameweek as well. It's insensitive, not funny.

              Insensitive to people who are non owners? Perhaps those people should realise it’s a game and not get depressed over not having a player in their fantasy football team, especially in the midst of a global pandemic.

                You'll never live like common people. You'll never do whatever common people do. You have no idea what life is like for us working class people on the street.

              what? who looks at the pictures and is brought down?

              I think you are probably having a bad week (or season again) and just taking the opportunity to have pop - you know exactly what you are doing and it would be fine if you didn’t make it personal by mentioning names

              I found the article quite informative, I now know that James Rod plays a bit more advanced at home (or is that against weaker opposition) than away and perhaps is chasing goals himself rather sitting deeper and maybe more chance of assists away from home.

              The 4 games is plenty to provide an insight in to how the Manager is setting up his midfield for his main creative outlet, which is what I take from this.

              For me, this is a good article.

              1. FPL Virgin

                I've owned Rodriguez since gameweek 2. I'm worrying about non owners who are hurting. It's a poor choice of picture.

                Good to have a contrasting point of view, though. Glad you got some use out of the article.

      2. BeDreamin
        • 4 Years

        I think what he's trying to say is, if the sample size is so small (I agree with him that a sample size of 2 home games and 2 away games is too small) any comparisons are pointless, hence he stopped reading. I get your point that we only have 4 data points, the answer to that is simply don't mention home/away form until there is enough data points. The number of data points required is obviously subjective, but I agree 4 is too small.

    3. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I think the only way a 4 game sample size would be relevant is if we knew Rodríguez had performed significantly better at home over the past couple of seasons, and that this were an early sign of that continuing following his switch to a new league. In isolation, it’s meaningless

    So do I absorb the price drop on Werner over IB before selling him?

    God I hate him!

    1. Vazza
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Keep. He is easy to downgrade to many viable options. If you transfer him out too early, you won’t be able to fix any issues that crop up during the IB unless you take a hit. So absorb the price drop and take it on the chin.

      • Valar(Keith)
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        If you plan on holding him then price drops will be nothing but temporary irritants since if he does come good with Pulisic and Ziyech back then his price will come back to 9.5 over the next few months. He could very well be 9.2/9.1 by end of the break though. So selling for someone like DCL or Wilson etc for a few weeks and then getting him back could save you money. I don't really care about cash this season though tbh. Enough cheap options in every position so I'm not too bothered about his price falling

          No I don't want keep him for sure. Much rather have Son or Chelsea mid at that price point. I'm definitely getting rid.

            Just a little caution here - the Iron are a bit of a bogey team for us. I'm expecting goals and some of them, sadly, will be in our net.

                We have no idea which hammers side would turn up, GW1 one or GW3 one. I have faith in leicester attack this season.

            WC. How's she looking?

            4.5 - 4.0
            TAA - Justin - Mitchell - Saiss - KWP
            Salah - KDB - Foden - Son - Bissouma
            Bamford - DCL - Ings

              not sure on Saiss and Foden

              and I will rather Maupay than Bamford

              the rest ok

            This is the most enjoyable start to an FPL season for a long long time imo. And im not even doing that well...

            Our mini league only has about 20 points separating the top 10 and the lead is changing every week. Loads of drama

            Swings, round abouts, ups and downs... THIS is what makes it fun again thankfully

                  He did the same as me starting Forster and benching Guaita. Small hope that Forster starts lol

                Bit early to be saving your season Bross. 34 weeks of this torture to go yet, you will have a lot more pain to endure. I suspect that during that time, you will say......
                1 at least 10 times " that's it, I'm finished with this sh*t"
                2. Bloody VAR, never works my way
                3. Why did I change my captaincy
                4. I was gonna bring him in for this week.

                You may also....
                Kick the dog, fall out with the wife/ partner, make rash transfers while drunk, be in a miserable mood cos of a poor gameweek.

                Why oh why are we addicted to this demon. Good luck mate, it will get better.

                  Your estimation of how many times I will claim my season is over or whine about VAR is quite a bit on the low side 😀

                    I was trying to be sympathetic and probably quoted my own expected figures. Hope your season picks up and you can post some positives.

              Cavani a decent buy or complete panic buy? Can’t see him being a starter at united?I Imagine he is backup to martial or do you think Martial could be moved to wing and Cavani starting?

                Total panic buy. This was Woodward exactly 1 year ago:

                "Our growing global fan-base demands success, and success means winning trophies. That target and that standard has never changed for Manchester United and we will continue to focus on the long-term strategy and won’t be influenced by short-term distractions."

                Panic buy, the most annoying thing is we didn't seem to bother with Hames or Bale due to the risk, both i think would have been a better option

                  Maupay (Connolly March Trossard suppliers)

                  Wilson (ASM Frasier Almirón suppliers)

                  Ings (Redmond Adams Djenpo suppliers)

                  Assuming they are equally skilled goalscorers who will get more chances created for them?

                    oops i guess Maupay

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

                      the fact that Trossard is the best of them and you forgot Lamptey who will get pens for Maupay

                  4. Pavsboot
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    1 month, 25 days ago

                    Brighton look the most attacking of the bunch so probably Maupay I'd imagine. Tempted to take some hits myself and get in both Maupay/Wilson though. If the pens keep coming having a 6.5 forward starting with a base of 10ish goals from pens seems incredible value.

                      1 month, 25 days ago

                      This was my thinking on wc last week but foolishly went Wood over Maupay

                        Don't think he's a bad option, on pens as well but yeah Maupay is looking the goods.

                      2. dmhomag
                        • 6 Years
                        1 month, 25 days ago

                        Barnes is back. Pens may go to Barnes.

                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 25 days ago

                    Ings is the best fwd by far. Wilson and Maupay would never have scored 22 goals(only one pen) in a PL season playing for Saints.
                    From those 3 though I think it's not about who is gonna supply them but it's the way the team is playing and I think that Newcastle is playing more defensively than the other two. Imo
                    Ings > Maupay > Wilson

                    Everyone should go with Wilson - I have no idea whether he's the best pick but I want my 0.1 back!

                  Maupay or Trossard?

                  1. Houldsworth Hatter

                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 25 days ago

                    Maupay for pens.

                  2. Pavsboot
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    Would probably end in disaster but tempted to have both tbh. Maupay looks incredible value with the pens but Trossard's returned in 3 games and hit the post three times in the other one.

                  Not sure which game to watch?
                  As a football fan i would rather watch Leicester v West ham
                  But as an fpl player I have McCarthy and Walker-Peters in the other game.

                  A) Leicester v West Ham
                  B) Southampton v West Brom
