The Rodriguez fitness latest as unavailability issues harm Calvert-Lewin’s FPL output

Southampton 2-0 Everton

  • Goals: James Ward-Prowse (£5.8m), Che Adams (£5.8m)
  • Assists: Danny Ings (£8.5m) x2
  • Red Cards: Lucas Digne (£6.2m)
  • Bonus: Ward-Prowse x3, Ings, Adams x2

Southampton secured a convincing win over a poor Everton side that is perhaps beginning to buckle under the strain of injuries and suspensions.

Goals from James Ward-Prowse (£5.8m) and Che Adams (£5.8m), both set up by the Saints’ most popular Fantasy Premier League (FPL) asset, the 18%-owned Danny Ings (£8.5m), earned the home side a deserved victory.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team comprehensively outplayed the visitors, out-shooting them 12-6 and having three times the number of attempts on target (six to two).

Small wonder, then, that the coach was a happy man post-match:

I think it was overall one of our best performances.

There was nothing positive to be found from an Everton perspective, however.

Toothless Toffees

Much of the pre-match talk, at least in Fantasy circles, revolved around the health of Toffees midfielder James Rodriguez (£8.0m).

In the end, his now-legendary haematoma didn’t keep him from playing, but it might as well have done.

The 38.9%-owned playmaker was a peripheral figure for much of the game. Then again, that was one up on many of the visiting team as Carlo Ancelotti’s side struggled to deal with Southampton’s pressing, organisation and commitment.

The Colombian also seemed to be struggling towards the end of the match, with his manager saying:

I think we have to check in the next few days. He was tired at the end, he felt his muscle a little bit. But I don’t think it’s a big problem.

The most-owned player in FPL, Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m and 56.8%), had a terrible day. Starved of service, he managed only two penalty area touches and didn’t have a single attempt.

In fact, he touched the ball just 18 times all game. Only one player, Southampton midfielder Ibrahima Diallo (£4.5m), had fewer, with 14. But he was on the pitch for four minutes.

A booking added to his, and his owners’, woes. A decent enough short-term schedule should mean Calvert-Lewin’s one-pointer doesn’t lead to too many sales, although there are other reasons why investment in Everton assets is looking less appealing all in.

In Squad We Can’t Trust

The Merseyside derby dismissal of Richarlison (£7.8m) had an impact on the strength and balance of Ancelotti’s team on the south coast.

The Toffees have not won a single game without the winger in their squad since his move to the north-west and that unwanted record was extended on Sunday.

Alex Iwobi (£5.9m) filled in for the Brazilian and was hooked after 45 unconvincing minutes, while a second start of the season for Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.9m) lasted 12 minutes longer but wasn’t much better, although the Iceland international did hit the bar with a long-range shot in the first half.

But the real problem came from a hamstring injury that denied the team the experience and expertise of Seamus Coleman (£5.0m) at right-back.

With three other defenders already on the injury list, that meant centre-half Ben Godfrey (£5.0m) shifting across to the flank. The experiment didn’t go well.

Hasenhuttl denied that his team targeted Godfrey:

No, it was a coincidence that we played more on this side. It’s more important that you’re dangerous on every side, flexibility is the key. We lured them a little bit and played through the lines.

But the reality spoke differently, with left-back Ryan Bertrand (£5.0m) finding himself much further forward than team-mate Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.5m) and creating three chances to the right-back’s nil.

Coleman’s absence also had an impact on Rodriguez, who was forced that much deeper and less central in a vain bid to provide some kind of help for Godfrey.

As if Ancelotti’s defensive problems weren’t already marked, Lucas Digne (£6.2m) dished out some more pain for his boss when he was shown a straight red card for a challenge, part frustration, part spite, on Walker-Peters in the 71st minute.

Hasenhuttl was not happy:

Yes. It was nasty. It looked like he tried to kick him first and then the stamp. It was a clear red card.

And neither was Ancelotti:

The red card was a joke, it was not intentional, for sure it was not violent. Maybe all this talk all week against Pickford, against Richarlison, affected the decision and if so it’s not right, it’s not fair. We will appeal, for sure.

Intentional or not, it ended in a nasty rake down Walker-Peters’ achilles. And unless that appeal succeeds, the 18.7%-owned Digne will not be in league action again until Gameweek 10 at the end of November.

In their current state, Everton can ill afford his absence, although it does throw up the intriguing possibility of budget FPL defender Niels Nkounkou (£4.0m) getting a game or three, with Fabian Delph (£4.9m) another candidate for the role.

But, just six games in, Everton’s squad is down to the bare bones in places and the loss of Digne is another potential short-term blow to Calvert-Lewin, given how much service the full-back provides from the left flank.

Saints Alive

Southampton are considerably less troubled in that department, with the one change to the side on Sunday forced by loanee Theo Walcott (£5.8m) not being eligible to play against his parent club.

Stuart Armstrong (£5.5m) filled in well enough, but it was the strike partnership of Adams and Ings that really caught the eye.

The former scored for the second straight Gameweek and has hauled in three of his last four starts, while Ings continues to show impressive consistency this season.

His first two assists of the campaign meant he’s produced attacking returns in four of the six matches to date.

In terms of value, the pair are ploughing remarkably similar furrows – the more expensive Ings is producing 4.6 points per million (PPM), the cheaper (but less productive) Adams 4.7 PPM.

They were both outshone, however, by midfielder Ward-Prowse, who scored his first goal of the season and took home the maximum bonus award for a double-digit haul.

The Saints’ next six fixtures are fairly favourable and the team as a whole is in a good place, with three clean sheets from their last four unbeaten matches.

That promotes investment in the side from front to back, whereas the opposite looks true for a threadbare-looking Everton squad.


Southampton XI (4-4-2): McCarthy;  Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong (Diallo 86′), Redmond; Ings, Adams (N’Lundulu 89′). 

Everton XI (4-3-3): Pickford; Godfrey, Mina, Keane, Digne; Doucoure (Gordon 58′), Allan, Sigurdsson (Delph 58′); Rodriguez, Iwobi (Bernard 45′), Calvert-Lewin.

    digne red was a bit harsh and as ancelotti said i do think the game against liverpool played a part. Poor from var and who ever the ref was.

    1. HMC

      He also said they were going to appeal the red

      May be harsh but he still deserved it.

    3. No Professionals
      • 3 Years

      looked pretty reckless to me, no way that gets overturned.

    4. kime67
      • 3 Years

      i would not be surprised if it was overturned, i mean it was 100% accidental and kwp did not get injured.

      1. Gandalf

        1 month, 5 days ago

        Why did he put his hands up in the air beforehand then? It looked like he was almost diverting blame in advance of the event even happening

        1. Ramboros
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          It's extremely common to hold up your arms if you move across a player from behind.

      2. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        It was only accidental after he he tried to do it purposefully.

    5. Joey Tribbiani
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Dont think it will be overturned

      • Salan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        It's a 200% red card.

      • Third Eye Vision
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        The key point was the one mentioned in the studio afterwards, that in ‘serious foul play’, which is what he was given the red card for, intent isn’t needed for the decision to be given. So, although it looks like it’s accidental, the red card decision will stand.

      • Pipermaru
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Accidental but still a red.

        A

    8. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Who to replace to get in Antonio in Game week 8?

      A) DCL
      B) Bamford
      C) Kane

      1. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        definitely not kane.

      2. PascalCygan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        B. DCL has nice long-term fixtures

      3. ElliotJHP
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Maybe just don't go Antonio? I know Fulham is a plum fixture and Antonio has been great for a while but there are loads of good options up top, feels a bit like people might do hokey cokey

    9. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Another bad week, would have been worse were it not for Wolves.

      Decided to hold off getting Kane for one last week (Jimi v Newcastle hopefully vindicated that, we’ll see tonight) but got the money to bring him in this week.

      So just Jimenez > Kane this week?

      (Probably prudent to wait until after Thursday’s Europa matches)

      1FT 2.5ITB

      Martinez
      TAA Saiss Justin

      1. kime67

        i would be more tempted to get rid of podence

        1. PascalCygan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Yeah, he’s a frustrating own and I want to get rid - it’s just the upside / downside of Kane feels too great going into his next couple of fixtures

      2. ElliotJHP
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Jimenez is so fine is the issue. Podence to James an option?

        1. PascalCygan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Good shout. Ideally I would get rid of Podence but I really I want Kane for the next couple of games.

    10. Joey Tribbiani
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Defence for next week, right order?

        Justin (lee) - Ayling (LEI) - Kilman (CRY)

        Bench: Lamptey (tot) - Taylor (CHE)

        1. PascalCygan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Looks spot on to me, maybe just swap the two on the bench around but good as you are

          1. Joey Tribbiani
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Really? Kinda want to play Lamptey 😮

              1. PascalCygan
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 5 days ago

                Really good player but I wouldn’t fancy Brighton to do much at Spurs with Spurs’ recent form. And see how Burnley get on tonight - they might frustrate Chelsea

        2. Bury94
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Jimenez & Podence to Antonio & Zaha for free next week? (for GW8)

          1. kime67
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            yeah if you already have grelish

            1. Bury94
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Yeah I've got him

          2. Gandalf
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Wait another gw before making those moves.

            1. Gandalf
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Ah you mean the gw after the next one..

        3. Saint Tommy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Already made my 2 FT's this week to avoid Kane price rise (risky, I know).
          Trent + Jimenez -> Ayling + Kane. Tough call to sell Jimenez but just concluded that Wolves weren't creating enough, and that Palace likely to stink that fixture out anyway. Double Liverpool defence just not working either. So looking like this for GW7:

          Martinez
          Ayling - Robbo - Saiss
          Hamez - Son - Salah - Podence
          DCL - Ings - Kane

          Subs: Forster, Lamptey (1), Mitchell (2), Burke (3)

          1.0M ITB

          Looking ahead at my options for GW8, I'm considering the following:

          A) Ings -> Werner
          B) Ings -> Antonio; Podence -> Havertz/Pulisic (-4)
          C) Podence -> Barkley
          D) Saiss -> Kilman; Podence -> Grealish (-4)

          Thoughts?

          1. kime67
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            i would have got rid of podence and hamez instead

            1. Saint Tommy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Kane was my priority to get in this week before price rises reduce my options. I bought Hamez at £7.5m so reluctant to sell based on one poor game. Podence does need replacing though, but the £1.0m ITB gives me options on that front.

          2. Tony Martial
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            I’m literally trying to get Ings in.. why would you take him out!

            1. Saint Tommy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Ha I'm just assessing options on the table. As a Saints fans I absolutely love Ings, but trying to be unsentimental with my transfers. May well keep him, but conscious of the fact that Antonio has some great fixtures coming up and the £2.0m banked would enable to me to significantly upgrade Podence, who is the weak link in my squad atm.

            2. jamiejoe
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Also Jimi is pretty much guaranteed a goal a game and an 8 or 9 point return, v reliable second stiker.

              But the expensive midfielders are the trade off with Kane.

              1. Saint Tommy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 5 days ago

                Yeah it was a headache to sell any of Ings/Jimenez/DCL for Kane, as all will tick over nicely. Just came down to the fact that Wolves, collectively, and Jimenez, individually, haven't created very much. Kane more likely to haul and gives me another captaincy option to Salah and Son.

                I've got value tied up in DCL, who is top scorer, and Ings has out-scored Jimenez this season as well as looking very sharp, so just felt he was the one to be moved on.

        4. Tony Martial
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Any chance KDB drops in price this week?

          And is he still a good option?

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Very likely and he will be but I wouldn't jump on him yet

            1. Tony Martial
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Thanks. But why?? Sheffield next and great fixtures long term jump on him early maybe?

              1. Flair
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 5 days ago

                City attacking numbers are the worst they've ever been

              2. ivantys
                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  Go for it if you have enough with free transfers. I'm getting him on either GW8 or GW10.

            2. motty47
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Still a great option. I never sold and held, he is near the top for chances created, on pens, proven fpl gold. And currently a differential since hes dropped to 15%. Just think, how long will kdb go before he starts scoring and assisting, he made 13 and 23 last year, he won't keep blanking. And guaranteed, when he gets back to his best, city will also click and everyone will come rushing back.

                Thanks, I think this is a chance to roll and get a 2ft, a little mini wc could be handy to get in bruno and a West Ham player when fixtures turn

                1. PascalCygan

                  Sounds good. I do like the look of those West Ham fixtures from 8 onwards

            1 month, 5 days ago

            I've still got Greenwood and he has to go until he finds his sparkle.

            So best £8.8 m mid please?

            Or do I dump DCL for Bamford and have £10.4 m to spend?

            0.1 off Bruno!

            1. GreennRed
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Pulisic.

              1. jamiejoe
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 5 days ago

                Good call ...

                Stick with DCL and avoid the Bamford bandwagon?

                I think Everton need Richarlison to really cut teams up.

              A Chelsea mid for the next 3 but it’s a hard pick which one

            3. ivantys
                1 month, 5 days ago

                Roll a dice over Pulisic or Havertz

                      It's totally 50-50 chance. One could be getting 10 points while the other 2 points, both still better than Werner for sure.

                Anyone bold enough to transfer DCL and Rodriguez out? No Coleman, Digne, Richarlison. James is carrying a knock. Not sure they'll be as good in the upcoming weeks.

                Thinking DCL to Kane and Rodriguez to Jorginho for -4.

                Thoughts?

                  Both out is bold but could pay off big especially as everyone has dcl

                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  Was consideringq Salah and Calvert Lewin, 1.7m itb, to Bruno and Vardy but prob keep DCL for now. He scored goals last season without Rodriguez, hopefully his form won't desert him.

                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  I'm tempted, DCL goes before Rodriguez for me in that case.

                  I was hoping PVA would just slot into midfield or even mitchell get the other FB, but now I'm not sure on the triple up for CPs nice games. Sell PVA + rodriguez for rashford + kilman?

                  Doing TAA, Mitro -> Budget def + Kane. Best budget defender (up to 4.7)?

                  A) Konsa (SOU, ars, BHA, whu, NEW)
                  B) Lamptey (tot, BUR, avl, LIV, SOU)
                  C) Masuaku (liv, FUL, shu, AVL, MUN)
                  D) Ayling (LEI, cry, ARS, eve, CHE)

                  Think I prefer Masuaku but doesn't feel great transfer in a defender against Liverpool as I'm also not keein on playing Taylor (CHE) or Mitchell (wol)

                    • 9 Years

                      1 month, 5 days ago

                      Masuaku beats him for every metric on the underlying stats though

                      1. GreennRed
                        • 9 Years
                        1 month, 5 days ago

                        Coufal has >5 points per game. That's the only stat that counts for me.

                    Think if Masuaku is who you want long term Taylor/Mitchell isn't ideal but not end of the world, can see Burnley frustrating Chelsea.

                    Arguments for all four, lots of options

                      The others are also likely to concede, but can't you just bench the def you get or find another way?

                            Dé Bruyne looks the obvious one in that case cos he's not fit yet but could end up outpointing Salah. Either way Kane is ahead of both on current form.

                            You need to decide which one of those midfielders you like the least and downgrade them

                          I'd keep hold of Grealish, stats are still great and unlucky not to return vs Leeds. Brewster upgrade is where I'd look personally

                            yea not very excited by that, mendy for me is a no go as chelsea not great defensively

                        Do we think Jota will start a good amount of games now for Liverpool or is he still prone to heavy rotation?

                        1. GreennRed
                          • 9 Years
                          1 month, 5 days ago

                          He'll rotate for now. Could eventually displace Firmino with Salah playing through the middle.

                            1 month, 5 days ago

                            it's easy to underestimate Firmino's importance to Klopp's system.

                            1. GreennRed
                              • 9 Years
                              1 month, 5 days ago

                              It isn't. He is class. That's why I'm saying Jota won't get in there anytime soon. But pundits reckon if he does manage to get in there it's Firmino more likely to lose out over Salah or Mane. Too many, especially FF players, judge Firmino on attacking returns.

                        Really tough one to decide this, would appreciate some help.

                        A) De Bruyne & Grealish/Zaha
                        B) Fernandes & Pulisic/Havertz

                        although i've had a pretty bad week (33pts, lampty, kane and son to play), it's been a pretty good one mentally.

                        Blanks for Fernandes, Rashford, Sterling, Aguero, KDB, Werner mean i'm not desperately trying to work out how to get another premium in for once!

                          I've had a fairly bad week but that was as much down to my choice of bench as well as the premiums blanking, so I still feel I'm doing something right!

                          it's not going to be far off

                          Doubt Davies starts over Reguilon and I'm not sure if Bale is fully match fit yet

                        Time to ditch Saiss ?

                        If he doesn't start Vs Palace, he will probably come on for a 1 pointer.

                        Maybe get Kilman instead ?
                        Thanks.

                          hard to second guess it. I'd want evidence of him not playing first.

                          Is he gonna be dropped?

                          I'm starting Sais, might switch to Cresswell for gw 8.

                          I'd consider it but I maybe have 3 defensive headaches ahead of Saiss sadly!

                        Any thoughts here? Two free transfers & 0.0 in the bank?

                        Maybe Maupay to somebody with a better fixture?

                        Dychey won’t let spurs haul tbh. The Burnley bus will be parked. Tackles coming flying in.

                            If they blank it will be good. Everyone blanked this week

                          I have Son and Kane with Taylor on the bench. Had an inkling to start Taylor, one of those FF premonitions that Burnley keep a cleansheet. I hope I'm wrong but also benched Coufal !

                        Chilwell, Saint-Max and Bamford or Kilman, Zaha and Bamford?

                        Digne, Sterling, Wood > Chilwell, Zaha, Kane (-8)

                        Worth it?
