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.

    of course dcl and Bamford blank, no doubt Adams and watkins will manage to scuff one in

    I think this is the best PL match I've watched for a while!

      The next one will be better.

        Guaranteed 😀

    Glad I avoided by PVA to cancelo -4. Phew

  4. CloudSky

    This should`ve been closer to 5:5 than 0:0.

    Sterling needs to score 6 against Fulham to make up for his fraudulence

    1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left

      You misspelt Cancelo

      1. _Ninja_

        Cancelo in for porto away then mendy back in for Fulham.

          You think?

          1. _Ninja_

            Pep on Mendys goal 'if they score they have more chance to keep playing' but Cancelo is alot better defensively so will play v tougher teams and away games. Mendy the easy home games.

    2. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      At least you didn't captain him

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

        Not much consolation

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years

        Same difference, unless VC doesn’t play

  6. Roy Hudd

    Dallas on 3 bonus for presumably tying his bootlaces nicely. He's done nothing in the game. Crazy how baps are awarded.

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      This!

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Dallas owner but I agree

    3. Gobigorgohome
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      that cross for Harrison

  7. Desi Gooner
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Mane, Sterling on bench and DCL/ Bamford competing for scruffiest game of the season - such is the luck this week

    • NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      So what position does Dallas play lately? ACM?

      1. Gobigorgohome
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        yes CAM or LB

        keep switching with Alioski

        1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Thanks.. good to know

    • Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Nice close up of DCL spitting all over the floor and himself, I've always found spitting completely unnecessary unless of course something goes in your mouth but in general people just spit for no reason.

      1. Traction Engine Foot
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        I thought they were banned from spitting due to Covid..

      2. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        You don’t run much then?

        1. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          I've run and cycled my whole life and played footy for 20 years, never felt the need to spit constantly

          1. Scrumper
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Totally agree.
            Always assumed it's some weird schoolboy thing they never grow out of.

        It's a physical, subconscious way of expressing dissapointment. Have you seen a player spit while celebrating after scoring a goal?

        1. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          It's a pretty dirty habit and a rancid way of expressing disappointment which is easily controlled in my opinion but oh well seems to be socially acceptable so what do I know

          1. Nightcrawler
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Agree its absolutely disgusting

            Not going to happen but shd be a 1 game auto ban

        2. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Rafinha literally just spat while celebrating his goal!

      4. Africa United
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        If you play a football match you'll understand it's something to clear your throat ok

        1. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Clear your throat of what? Saliva is in your mouth. I've played 1000s of football matches, how does playing football make you need to spit all the time?

    • Olson
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Salah basically a fail, Mane a fail, KdB reliable but failed to really excel in a prime fixture, Sterling a joke.

      Why was it people were getting rid of Kane and Son again?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        The reliable.

          • 2 Years

          This

        2. Olson
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Should never have been a one or the other situation with the two highest scoring players

      2. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Blinded

      3. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Vardy mostly. but wouldn't be shocked if Kane and Son hauled.

      4. HVT
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        10pts is harsh on Kevin

      5. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Kept them both, but lets not count chickens (and Salah hauled without fraud)

      6. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        How is 10 points failing to excel? Silly.

        1. Olson
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          It's fine. I'm happy with it. I wouldn't be happy with it if I'd traded Kane or Son for it and used transfers.

          Five goals, ten points.

    • Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Meslier haul today.

    • Lazaretti
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Any suggestions 2FT, 2.7 itb

      Martinez - Peacock-....
      Robertson - PVA - Dallas - Lamptey - Kilman
      Salah - J.Rodrigues - Grealish Ziyech - Klich
      Kane - Bamford - Watkins

      KdB Sterling in maybe something else. Willing to take -8 or -12 whatever it takes to shake this bunch.

    • dogtanion
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      At some stage, Bamford's stats really mean nothing if he continuously misses from 6 yards out

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        He gets 10-12 chances a game ; even I could put one in and so does Bam

    • ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 10 Years

      Everton missing siggy

    • KGFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Hamez has been unlucky but is still a poor pick...

      1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Some people are relentless with the idea that Hamez is a bad pick. He can’t score every week

        1. F_Ivanovic
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          He's not bad per say but when you have so many good options he's not looking like someone that is worth 7.5-8m.

        2. Sloane426
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 1 day ago

          He’s a bad pick for fpl. 50% of his returns have come in one game

    • diesel001
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Both teams giving each other so much space in midfield.

    • Dosh
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Both teams so wasteful. Should be 1-1 or 2-2

    • ivantys
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Leeds solid at the back today. Never know which Leeds would turn up. They could keep CS or concede 4 a game. Such an exciting team.

        1. diesel001
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Everton wasteful. Not Leeds being solid.

        2. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Solid?!?

          1. ivantys
              3 months, 1 day ago

              Compared to the palace game yeah or the ones where they conceded 4.

        3. Gobigorgohome
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          good- Sold Maupay for -4
          bad- Bought Bamford for him

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Only a net of -1 thus far, could be worse.

            1. Gobigorgohome
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 1 day ago

              yes only -1

            2. Gobigorgohome
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 1 day ago

              Imagine that Maupay pen went in LOL

              1. Hazz
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 1 day ago

                Luckily with Maupay, the chance he misses is always higher.

        4. Booked4Dissent

          Everton aren’t going to score today. Bad game. Average teams. Basic.

          Of course the most unlikely 0-0 of the season is going to finish 0-0, why wouldn't it?

            Where's David Cootes?

          Every single outfield Leeds player, apart from the two centre-backs, created a chance in the first half vs. Everton.

            They really do attack as a unit, defend too!

          Thankfully have Lewis coming on for Cancelo. What are people doing with him?

          Hold
          Sell

          Out of these 4 choices, who is the best 3 premiums for the next 8 games ?

          A) salah
          B) kdb
          C) bruno
          D) kane

              Wdym drops out

              I would say bruno, possibly kane but hes in great form and i dont want to get rid.
              I have bruno, kdb and kane atm, but salah needs to come in for the fulham game and onwards.
              So who do i sacrifice?

              3 months, 1 day ago

              Not sure, your right thou. I just feel i am am wasting transfer swapping between mids. I am just wondering whos everyone elses favourites.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            I think some switches between them will be needed over the next 8 games to target the likes of Fulham and West Brom

            1. southcoastbeast
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 1 day ago

              Fair enough, its just trying to work the best one to ditch. Maybe i should ditch kane for a few weeks.

        9. HuttonDressedasLahm

          Team
          Klich DCL Bamford
          Bench
          Dallas

          Of course it’s 0-0 🙄

          1. Gobigorgohome
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            brutal

            Dallas with max baps too

        10. Kryptonite666
          • 1 Year

          Dallas to Cancelo for a -4 will likely cost me 10 points.

          1. Gobigorgohome
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            wow

          2. Sloane426
            • 1 Year

            Never take a -4 for a defender

            Just curious Davies gets 1 or 2 points. His number came up at 59 but went out at 60 lol.
