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.

      1. Ragabolly
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Guaranteed 😀

  3. NABIL - I still got Tsimi

    Glad I avoided by PVA to cancelo -4. Phew

  4. CloudSky
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    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.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      You misspelt Cancelo

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

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

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          You think?

          1. _Ninja_
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            10 months, 24 days ago

            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 still got Tsimi
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      At least you didn't captain him

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Not much consolation

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Same difference, unless VC doesn’t play

  6. Roy Hudd
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 24 days ago

    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
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      This!

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Dallas owner but I agree

    3. Gobigorgohome
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      that cross for Harrison

  7. Desi Gooner
      10 months, 24 days ago

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

    • NABIL - I still got Tsimi
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      So what position does Dallas play lately? ACM?

      1. Gobigorgohome
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        yes CAM or LB

        keep switching with Alioski

        1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Thanks.. good to know

    • Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 24 days 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
        10 months, 24 days ago

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

      2. Bushwhacker
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        You don’t run much then?

        1. Super Saints
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 24 days 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
            10 months, 24 days ago

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

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        10 months, 24 days ago

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

        1. Super Saints
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 24 days 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
            • 2 Years
            10 months, 24 days ago

            Agree its absolutely disgusting

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

        2. Super Saints
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Rafinha literally just spat while celebrating his goal!

      4. MagicMessi
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

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

        1. Super Saints
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 24 days 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?

    • Pacer.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 24 days 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™ - 6dcode
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 12 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        The reliable.

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          This

        2. Pacer.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

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

      2. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Blinded

      3. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

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

      4. HVT
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        10pts is harsh on Kevin

      5. Bushwhacker
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

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

      6. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        How is 10 points failing to excel? Silly.

        1. Pacer.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 24 days 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
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Meslier haul today.

    • Lazaretti
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days 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
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

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

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

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

    • ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Everton missing siggy

    • KGFC
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

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

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

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

        1. F_Ivanovic
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 24 days 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
          • 2 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

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

    • diesel001
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Both teams giving each other so much space in midfield.

    • Dosh
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

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

    • ivantys
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 24 days 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
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Everton wasteful. Not Leeds being solid.

      2. Bushwhacker
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Solid?!?

        1. ivantys
          • 1 Year
          10 months, 24 days ago

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

    • Gobigorgohome
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

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

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

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

        1. Gobigorgohome
          • 10 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          yes only -1

        2. Gobigorgohome
          • 10 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Imagine that Maupay pen went in LOL

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            10 months, 24 days ago

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

    • Booked4Dissent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

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

    • Bury94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

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

      1. Fred54

        Where's David Cootes?

    • Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

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

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years

        That’s some stat

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

      Hold
      Sell

    • southcoastbeast

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

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

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          10 months, 24 days ago

          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?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          10 months, 24 days 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.

      3. FourLokoLeipzig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 24 days 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
          10 months, 24 days ago

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

    • HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 11 Years

      Team
      Klich DCL Bamford
      Bench
      Dallas

      Of course it’s 0-0 🙄

      1. Gobigorgohome
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        brutal

        Dallas with max baps too

    • Kryptonite666
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

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

      1. Gobigorgohome
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        wow

      2. Sloane426
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Never take a -4 for a defender

      2. diesel001

        Allan's Brazillian though.

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

      1. Gobigorgohome
        • 10 Years
