Digne and Everton attack thrive in wing-back system but defence leaks more goals

FULHAM 2-3 EVERTON

  • Goals: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.8m) x2, Abdoulaye Doucouré (£5.3m) | Bobby De Cordova-Reid (£5.3m), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.9m)
  • Assists: Richarlison (£7.8m), Lucas Digne (£6.1m) x2| Tom Cairney (£5.3m), Ademola Lookman (£5.0m)
  • Bonus: Calvert-Lewin x3, Doucouré x2, Digne x1

CONVERT-LEWIN

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.8m) owners may be hoping Carlo Ancelotti retains the wing-back system which worked to devastating effect in attack during the first half against Fulham on Sunday.

The Everton striker put his team 1-0 up after 42 seconds as the Toffees pounced on Fulham’s poorly-executed attempt to play out from the back.

Lucas Digne (£6.1m), operating at left wing-back, won the ball high up the pitch before releasing Richarlison (£7.8m).

The Brazilian’s cross took a slight touch off a Fulham defender but found its intended target in Calvert-Lewin, who bundled home from close range.

The England striker totalled three attempts in the match, all from inside the box and all of which hit the target.

“The first half was a representation of me benefitting from the new system, where I’m getting chances from wide areas, crosses coming in.

“That’s what I like, being in the right area at the right time.” – Dominic Calvert-Lewin

WING-BACK TO THE FUTURE

Whether or not Ancelotti retains the 3-4-3 formation will be revealed in the coming Gameweeks, though the Italian is aware that Everton must defend better:

“Alex Iwobi played well, like the others played really well. I am pleased for him. In that wing-back position, he can show his quality.

“We have to improve (defensively) for sure. We were not so compact and not so close to the line. We have time this week to work on this.

“I don’t think it is a winning system because there is no winning system. The sytem gave us the possibility to use more of the width of the pitch and to put crosses in.” – Carlo Ancelotti

Both Digne and the impressive Alex Iwobi (£5.9m) were heavily involved in Everton’s attacking play at Craven Cottage.

Iwobi’s jinking run in the first half led to James Rodriguez (£7.9m) finding Digne on the left.

The Frenchman’s first-time cross resulted in a first-time Calvert-Lewin finish just before the half-hour mark.

Ten minutes earlier, Iwobi saw an assist for Calvert-Lewin chalked off as the striker had strayed offside before beating the busy Alphonse Areola (£4.5m).

Rodriguez owners may be less impressed with the new Everton system, which saw him playing centrally in attack but usually feeding the marauding wing-backs.

That occurred again on 35 minutes as a lovely one-two between Digne and Rodriguez allowed the former to cross for Abdoulaye Doucouré (£5.3m), who rose unchallenged to head home.

It could have been an assist hat-trick for Digne before the half-time whistle but Richarlison fluffed his lines from close range after the France defender put in a teasing low cross.

Richarlison also saw an attempt inside the box saved by Areola earlier in the opening period, following an excellent shot assist from Calvert-Lewin.

TOFFEES COME UNSTUCK

For all of Everton’s excellent attacking play in the first half, Fulham exposed the 3-4-3 formation in the second period.

Parker’s team took control of possession, pushing Digne and Iwobi back towards their own goal.

Fulham’s pressure told on 68 minutes when substitute Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.9m) was fouled inside the area.

The Cottagers’ woes from the penalty spot continued, however, as Ivan Cavaleiro (£5.3m) slipped on hitting the spot-kick to send the ball over Jordan Pickford‘s (£4.9m) crossbar.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (£5.7m) and Ademola Lookman (£5.0m) – who have both missed a penalty this season – were on the pitch at the time.

“I don’t think you could write it. Cav was the penalty taker, we worked on it this week. Like I said it after the last time [with Lookman], you can miss penalties and he slipped. It is one of those things.

“No denying we have issues with penalties. We’ll keep working and training it to see who is the best to take them.” – Scott Parker

Two minutes later, Loftus-Cheek did grab a goal back for Fulham as he steered a Lookman cross past Pickford.

“I thought [Ruben] was brilliant really. He came in and worked really hard with him with the information I’m trying to give him so he can have a big impact. Sometimes he can have a tendency to drift but today was everything we wanted.” – Scott Parker

Ancelotti’s response was to hook both Rodriguez and Richarlison, as Everton clung on for a precious three points:

“It was a difficult game, it was difficult to prepare. It was a good first half, second half we lost physical energy and we had difficulties. James was tired, Richarlison was tired.” – Carlo Ancelotti

While Fulham dominated the second half, their defensive lapses in the opening 45 minutes – and another spot-kick blunder – proved the Cottagers’ undoing. That domination, however, did stop Calvert-Lewin from having an opportunity to clinch a hat-trick.

“It was a game of two halves. Second half, we didn’t really have much of the ball. It was more about digging in, winning fouls and free-kicks. It was more of a lonely role [up front].

“It sounds cliche but in the second half we didn’t have much of the ball and on another day we might be punished for not playing well in the second half.” – Dominic Calvert-Lewin

COTT ON THE HOP

The Cottagers’ issues in defence are certain to be at the forefront of FPL managers’ minds heading into Gameweek 10.

Parker’s men travel to play Leicester next weekend, before back-to-back clashes against Manchester City and Liverpool.

Having conceded ten goals in the opening three Gameweeks of the season, Fulham let in just five in as many fixtures before Gameweek 9.

But going into Gameweek 9 only Everton (7.83), Sheffield United (7.64) and West Ham (6.11) had higher ‘expected goals conceded‘ totals than Fulham (6.01).

That xGC figure was racked up in fixtures against the Blades, Crystal Palace, West Brom and the Hammers.

On Mitrovic’s benching, Parker said before the game:

“[It is] mainly [a] tactical [decision]. Obviously Aleks has come back from international duty. The team I’ve [picked] today is a team that I feel can hurt Everton, can cause them problems.

Cavaleiro was the man tasked with leading the line against Everton, though it was Decordova-Reid who got Fulham’s first-half goal after linking well with Tom Cairney (£5.3m).

After the match, an irritated Parker reflected:

Improved in the second half but three goals down, I have stood here many times, you can’t go on to score four goals to win games.

A reaction? Yes, for sure, but it came too late. First half as always we played some nice stuff, showed what we were about but any second ball we came out second best. It is not the way it needs to be.

We changed things around tactically [in the second half] but we did exactly what we missed in the first half in the battles and the fundamentals of a football match. They have to be a given. We fell short of that in the first half.


Fulham XI (4-2-3-1): Areola; A Robinson, Adarabioyo, Andersen, Aina; Reed, Lemina (Zambo Anguissa 69′); Lookman, Cairney (Loftus-Cheek 57′), De Cordova-Reid (Mitrovic 57′); Cavaleiro.

Everton XI (3-4-3): Pickford; Keane, Mina, Godfrey; Digne, Allan, Doucouré, Iwobi,; Richarlison (Sigurdsson 76′), Calvert-Lewin, Rodriguez (Davies 73′).

    Fulham were beyond atrocious. Even iwobi looked like a good player...

  2. More Cowbell

    Feels like a wildcard kinda week to me

  3. Sotamendi84

    rashford kane soucek -> salah kdb brewster for -8 worth it?

    1. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Nah

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Maybe not all in one go

    3. asquishypotato
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Nah

  4. Forza Papac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Robbo, Harrison > Cancelo, Torres?

    Would give me triple city.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Yes?

    2. asquishypotato
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Wait til UCL comes and goes, not sure Robbo would be a priority to take out following Liverpool’s defending

    3. Mr Wolf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I am looking at bringing Robbo in...Torres too risky in my opinion. Not sure a triple is worth it as of now.

    4. Front 442
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      What?
      After Robbo’s performance yesterday.
      He was immense and lots of Liverpool’s play was down the left.
      On another day he could’ve retuned 2 or 3 assists and a goal.
      They made Leicester look average. Think what they’ll do to Brighton

      1. The Big Fella
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Brighton won't try and have a go as much

  5. Tinfoil Deathstar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Posted similar earlier in terms of potential transfer plans. But it pretty much boils down to these two options. Which is better?:

    A) Robbo + Cancelo + Ziyech
    B) KDB + Cancelo + Mitchell

    1. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      A

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      B KdB gives captaincy for this week and next week. It's probably fewer transfers too assuming you have Mitchell already.

      1. Tinfoil Deathstar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I have Robbo and Mitchell currently. Was thinking of either Hamez + Robbo to Cancelo + KDB for a -4. Alternative is just to upgrade Mitchell to Cancelo this week, and then Hamez to Ziyech next, with no hits taken. I have Bruno and Salah already as alternative captaincy options to KDB.

        1. Whiskerz
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Your alternative plan is better imo. You miss out on kdb for the time being, but he hasn't exactly set the world alight recently.

          Do you have a plan to upgrade Bruno, or someone else, to him later, or does missing out now mean missing out permanently?

          1. Tinfoil Deathstar
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Thanks. I have £2.6 ITB so I'd actually enough to switch Bruno for KDB before the Fulham fixture, instead of Hamez to Ziyech in GW11. At least that gives me the upcoming Burnley fixture to assess whether City attack is starting to click or not.

  6. LOLarov
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    Werner --> Vardy

    Vardy (C)

    Makes sense right?

    1. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Yeah I like that move

    2. puhd
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      yes

    3. Mr Wolf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Yes indeed

    4. antis0cial
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Yep

    5. Front 442
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Most definitely

  7. leonickroberts
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Bottomed. How sure are we that Jota is nailed once Salah returns? Keen to bring him in but want to be confident he won't drop back to the bench.

    1. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      We aren't. He will turn into an impact sub and rotation option imo.

    2. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      He's not nailed. People just think he will provide points even if he does so as a sub, so it's worth the risk for that price.

      1. leonickroberts
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Cheers. Given I've currently got McGinn in that spot with 6.9 to spend, I think it's probably worth it...

    3. puhd
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I wouldnt get Jota, but if I had, I would keep, if that makes sense

      1. leonickroberts
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Who would you go for in the 6.9m price bracket? He's the only real stand-out option.

  8. Kitman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Feels weird to move Son > KDB after a 10 point haul against Man City

    My rationale is - i've still got Kane and just 2 spurs attackers is too much gien fixtures. I need Man City because of fixtures and KDB is top pick of them.

    Son may score but am hoping Kane will pick up some slack and KDB will romp it!

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Exactly. Spurs have a viable forward option which City and Liv do not.

    2. asquishypotato
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      If anything I think Son is the one to keep for now, Kane had more defensive contributions then attacking despite his assist - as Elle predicted Kane is dropping back to allow the counter

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Good point but Kane is still on pens and can you really see him going 2-3 games without a goal?

        1. asquishypotato
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          No, I agree on that point, it’s swings and roundabouts, I just have a think that with Mou in charge Kane will want the win more then to lurk at the halfway line. He will score, but so will other options

  9. Zlatan F.C
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Help here please

      Almost certain i'll be doing Saiss to Cancelo this week FT
      Is it worth doing Kane to Vardy as well for a hit? Will captain Vardy

      Martinez
      Robbo Chilwell Cancelo
      Grealish Son Fernandes Fornals Podence
      DCL Kane

      Forster Lamptey Brewster Ferguson

      1. puhd
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I am thinking the same. I think its worth the hit

      2. Kitman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I would never take Kane out for a hit unless injury etc

      3. Mr Wolf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Long term it might pay off

    • More Cowbell
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Hey all

      Would you wildcard this lot? Or is it salvageable?

      McCarthy, X,
      TAA, RJames, Justin, Konsa, MItchell
      Fernandes, Son, Grealish, St Maximin, Bissouma,
      Kane, Jiminez, Maupay

      1. puhd
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I would WC and get rid of TAA, Mitchel, StM, Biss, Kane, Jimmy, Maupauy.

        1. Mr Wolf
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Agreed, possibly RJames too...your time has come 😉

      2. Kitman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        i'd definitely Wildcard if you have one.

        With fixture swingds its a great time

        TAA, Justin, ST Max, Jimi, Maupay all need to go
        potentially Bissouma, Reece James (although seems pretty nailed of late) and Mitchell > Kilman

    • asquishypotato
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I don’t think I can go without Calvert Lewin, he just seems to get the half chances and bundles them in.

      So, J Rod and Kane out

      KDB and DCL in.

      I can’t say I’m happy with it but every time he scores I plummet!

      1. puhd
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Good moves mate, captain KDB

      2. More Cowbell
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Think I'm at that point now too. Have been waiting for him to stop scoring but he just isn't!

        1. asquishypotato
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          He is the one of the 3 players in this game that scares me, KDB is another and Salah, who I will get back in later

      3. Mr Wolf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        True but fixtures swing around the corner....similar to Kane

        Yes, 8 players in 2 matches is really risky, you have to move players out of those fixtures.

        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        1FT. Mane to Salah right?

        Martinez (Steele)
        Chilwell Kilman Mitchell (Struijk Lamptey)
        Mane KDB Bruno Grealish Soucek
        Kane DCL (Brewster)

        1. Big_Bear
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Yeah, nice team though.

        2. davies
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Maybe save instead - depending on UCL team lineup

          Very similar to you... Any plans for the defence?

          1. Inazuma X1
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            If Mitchell and Kilman lose their place, then I will downgrade Lamptey

            1. davies
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Think Kilman will be fine but I’m in the same situation and we could be down to 2 defenders next week

              Might have to sell Mitchell for a hit if he’s dropped

              1. Inazuma X1
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 2 days ago

                Happy to play 10 for a GW, hit don't pay off for defenders most of the time

        3. Mr Wolf
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          A bit sideways...I would focus on your defence and take Mitchell out

          1. Inazuma X1
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Have a feeling he will play

            1. Mr Wolf
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Good luck with that then 😉

        4. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Maby consider Kane to Vardy instead?

          1. Inazuma X1
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Nah I have fix defence first before that

            1. Inazuma X1
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              have to*

      3. Big_Bear
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Those with WC in hand Im right in thinking they've got to be used before deadline on 28th December so effectively every transfer is just really to consider for 6 weeks (rather then long term)?

        Makes me look at Wilson a bit more closely if he's back fit. (Due to Newcastle favourable fixtures).

        1. The Ilfordian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          That assumes you’ll use the second wc immediately. Mind, I don’t look forward more than six weeks anyway, half team set and forget, the rest rotated

      4. Hansel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        A
        GW10: Jimi -> Bamford
        GW11: JRod -> Salah

        B:
        GW10: Jimi -> DCL
        GW11: JRod -> Ziyech
        GW12: Bruno -> Salah

        Current front 8:
        Bruno Son JRod Grealish Bissouma
        Vardy Jimi Watkins

        1. Mr Wolf
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          A for me. Big fixtures swing for dcl soon

      5. RED_ARMY
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Would you do Werner to Vardy for a -4?

        1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          No

        2. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Definitely not for a hit

        3. Mr Wolf
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          I would consider it if you captain Vardy too

      6. Stram Dunk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Salah is expected to rejoin the group in training as Liverpool prepare for the Atlanta game.

        “That’s what I’ve heard, yes, it [was] negative [Sunday]," revealed Klopp.
        “[Monday] we have the UEFA testing for the #UCL and I am pretty sure he will be in that.
        He can now train with us."

      7. The Senate
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        0FT. Would you WC:
        Rashford, Son, Telles, Leno, Justin >
        KDB, JWP, Robbo, 4.5 Def, 4.8 GK?

      8. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        So I have to choose either KDB or Bruno, does it make sense to pick KDB for the fact that he can be easily downgraded to Bruno anytime, while for Bruno it's hard to have a way back to KDB

        1. Hansel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          KDB!

        2. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Shuffling between premiums isn’t neccessary or needed. Pick the one that will score the most medium to long term

        3. antis0cial
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          KDB, two great fixtures, three if you include vs Man U!

        4. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          No, pick the one you think will score more points.

      9. BNMC
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I've dug myself into a corner with 12.1 to spend on a mid. No Liverpool or City at all in my team.

        Should I buy KDB, Mane, or downgrade a defender to get Salah for a -4?

        1. Mr Wolf
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Kdb for now

        2. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 2 days ago

          KDB

      10. BEEZUS
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Cancelo best City defence option?

        1. jomikijiq
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          if you have a playing bench then yeah
          Dias if not

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Simple as that ^

        2. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          At present, yes. Obviously Laporte or Dias safer options, but I like the number of crosses he is putting in.

      11. antis0cial
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        4 itb 1ft. Early thoughts assuming Barkley injured

        A) Barkley to Jota
        B) Hamez to KDB
        C) Hamez Barkley to KDB max 6 mid (-4)

        Martinez
        Zouma Coufal Ayling Mitchell
        Salah Bruno Grealish Hamez
        Kane DCL

        Brewster Barkley* Lamptey*

        1. Hansel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          A

      12. GuenDoozy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 2 days ago

        What would you do here?

        Martinez
        Robbo Chilwell Coufal
        Bruno Son Grealish Ziyech Hames
        Kane Dcl
        Steer Lamptey Mitchell Brewster

        1.8itb, 1ft

        The only way I can get Salah or KDB is by getting rid of my mid range mids:
        A) Ziyech + Hames > KDB (c) + JWP (-4)
        B) Ziyech + Hames > Salah (c) + Soucek (-4)

        1. jomikijiq
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Bruno -> KDB/Salah (C)
          or
          Kane -> Vardy (C)

      13. leonickroberts
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Thoughts on this? 1 FT, 1.9 itb.

        Martinez
        Chilwell Bellerin Justin Coufal
        Salah Sterling Ziyech Fernandes
        DCL Watkins

        (4.0, Mitchell, Brewster, McGinn)

        a) Bellerín > Cancelo
        b) Bellerín & McGinn > Cancelo & Jota (-4)
        c) Bellerín & McGinn > Robbo & Soucek/

        1. Mr Wolf
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Hold this week - I wouldn't take out Bellerin, maybe Justin after this GW

        Who would everyone pick as their 3 premiums long term?

        1. jomikijiq
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Salah, KDB, Kane
          easy
