Calvert-Lewin and Bamford the Fantasy focus as Everton host Leeds

Everton’s Gameweek 10 meeting with Leeds is a tale of two forwards as far as Fantasy Premier League managers are concerned.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.9m) and Patrick Bamford (£6.1m) are owned by 60.9% and 35% of teams respectively and, unsurprisingly, bot start for their respective sides at Goodison Park.

While Leeds have gone with an unchanged XI from their 0-0 draw with Arsenal, Carlo Ancelotti has been forced into some alterations for Everton.

He sticks with the 3-4-2-1 shape used in the 3-2 win at Fulham but replaces the injured Lucas Digne (£6.2m) with Tom Davies (£5.3m) at left wing-back.

Alex Iwobi (£5.9m) holds onto his right wing-back role while Mason Holgate (£4.8m) comes into captain the side from centre-back, in for Yerry Mina (£5.5m).

Leeds’ unchanged set-up means FPL defender Stuart Dallas (£4.5m) is likely to play in central midfield once again, with Ezgjan Alioski (£4.4m) around to cover him at left-back.

Fresh from hitting the woodwork against Arsenal, it’s a second consecutive start at right-midfield for Raphinha (£5.4m) at the expense of Hélder Costa (£5.5m).

Everton XI (3-4-2-1): Pickford; Keane, Holgate, Godfrey; T Davies, Allan, Doucouré, Iwobi; Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Rodríguez.

Leeds United XI (4-1-4-1): Meslier; Alioski, Cooper, Koch, Ayling; K Phillips; Harrison, Dallas, Klich, Raphinha; Bamford.

        Was hoping for a goal / assist or two from Semedo but what can you do!

    2. Lindelol

    kdb owners make good move and get more bad luck, horrible

      What happened mate??

      • 8 Years

    1. DAZZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Mahrez, mendy, kdb likely

  7. Rupert The Horse

    19 from 2. Happy Chappy.

  8. DAZZ

    26 points from KDB (C) and Dias. Perfect. Would have 100% taken this before the game if you’d have asked me.

  9. Smurf
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    I actually feel very disappointed as a KDB captainer. Could have easily been much more. Really needed it too while he's more of a differential before his ton of new owners pile on next GW.

    1. DAZZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      His % wont go up that much.

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Agree. Annoyed

    3. sully29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Yep. I feel very lucky as someone who owns Sterling rather than KDB. It was set up for punishment.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 6 days ago

        I think I'll cap him next week. What are your plans with him?

        1. sully29
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Sterling? As it stands he's my captain.

          I have enough money itb to do Son > KDB too though if I want so that might change.

    4. Joey Tribbiani

        yep

        1. Hart-ake
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          All helps.

    7. davies
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Sterling...

      A) Sell for Son

      B) Keep for Fulham

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Wait for midweek

      2. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Midweek might help.

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

          Sell if starts midweek?

    8. The Sociologist
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 6 days ago

      KDB has to come in this week, but which of Salah or Fernandes makes way?

      1. tafrère
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Salah out one week before Fulham ?

        1. The Sociologist
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 6 days ago

          He'd have to come straight back in I guess...

    9. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Non KDB owners like me lucked out hard

      1. DAZZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        KDB owners would have taken 10 before the game started.

        1. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          This

      2. seewhyaxe
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        you think Vardy can beat that score?

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Yes.

        2. Im New Here
            3 months, 6 days ago

            I have both, I think Vardy will end up with a similar score

        3. F4L
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          meh, its quite a consistent story with KDB. A lot of the time City score 3+ and KDB doesn't really haul, does well over the course of the season as he's on the pitch more often than Cities' other attacking options.

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Hit the bar, that goes in and he's got 7 more points plus 14 for captainers.

            1. F4L
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 6 days ago

              again meh, players miss chances. Not everything goes in.

        4. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Wouldn’t go that far, still a 10 pointer

      3. RedWolf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Fuming but probably not that unexpected given how it's gone this year: Sterling, Mane and Cancelo owner

      4. D ✅
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        25 from 3 - Walker KDB and Jota

        1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          The only people I have had play are on my bench!! Bissouma and Lewis!! Lewis comes in for Cancelo tho which is good and deserving really

        2. KGFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Noiceeee

      5. ClassiX
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Of course, it's impossible to be certain until Bruno plays, but so far avoiding the temptation to trade him for Salah or KDB this week does not feel like the worst decision.

      6. Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        As a non kdb owner ill take that , phew.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Would you take the KDB 10 pointer if offered now?

          1. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Ofc

          2. Africa United
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            No

      11. seewhyaxe
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        so who's the best City captaincy pick next gw now?

      12. Elly88 > KTR (Kevin The …
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        The EVE-LEE looks to have a cummulative of atleast 7 goals. What are your thoughts mates?

        1. Daniel - WC Active
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Bam Bam and DCL both hatricks 😉

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Yes, and add Dallas to the mix!

          2. Elly88 > KTR (Kevin The …
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            I will take that

        2. F4L
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          depends how Everton approach the game, if its 3 CMs sitting deep, with CBs at full back it'll be a tight game.

        3. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          0-0 or 0-2

      13. Heiro
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        A: Sterling to KDB or

        B: Podence & Son to Souchek & KDB -4

      14. Make United Great Again
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Fernandes (C) shall be the real winners

        1. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          I can't see it, we are looking very good at the moment.

      15. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Guaita, Jota & KDB thus far.

        Oh Palace, why couldn't you just keep it tight 😆

      16. Puntillimon
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        I need richarlison to get more points than dcl this game...

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Equal won't do?

        2. Make United Great Again
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          That hasn’t worked out well this season

      17. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        0 from 0. Anyone doing better?

        1. Hect.OR 98th
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          No. 1 from 2 (Jota and Cancelo in as part of a -8, but I did take out Maupay for Vardy as well, so should cover the cost).

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Vardy hopefully should. Captained him too?

      18. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        So I have the exact money to do Rashford to KDB folks(would have some it this week but would have been for a hit) am I going to have to make it tonight we think!?? Or wait and have to move for Sterling instead?? Thoughts appreciated!!
