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.

    James to Jota done deal

    He's had weeeeeeeeks now and I've had enough.

    Save your "he could have 15pts" n all

    1. Salah’s Sonnet
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 10 hours ago

      He was always going to dry up

    Anyone else feeling sick after the transfers they made this week?!

    I never normally go for hits to swap premiums for premiums but I was possessed by the FPL demons last night (must be that 😆 )

    Expect Kane and Son to mega haul. Well done to those more sensible than I!

    (This is partially my live frustration with Bamford and DCL being on 2pts a piece after this beauty of a match!)

      Yes. Cancelo in

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 10 hours ago

        Looked like a wise move tbf. Just had risk attached!

    2. Gizzachance

      Cancelo In to, Dallas 1st sub!
      Have dcl

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 10 hours ago

        Oof. This week was bound to be brutal for many of us

    3. DannyDrinkVodka

      Transferring Cancelo in was a terrible error (in hindsight)

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 10 hours ago

        Wouldn’t call it an error. There was risk but it was a good move on paper!

      Rest of my game week is reliant on son Kane Bruno vardy(cap)

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 10 hours ago

        Mine is reliant on Bruno, Vardy (C) hauling and Kane and Son blanking!

      What did you do mate?

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 10 hours ago

        Kane, Son > Vardy, KDB (-4)

        Can’t believe I caved!!

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 10 hours ago

          And what’s went wrong so far?

          1. Don Kloppeone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 10 hours ago

            The feeling of impending doom 😆

            Of course it could be magic. But that’s not normally how my luck goes 😉

            What did you do in the end?

            1. RAFA THE GAFFA
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 year, 10 hours ago

              I did Son+Hamez >> KDB(c) and Jota for a hit.

              So 20+9 (-4). 25 return.

              Hamez with a 2. So would take Son plus possibly Bruno to make up the 23 points which is possible I guess

              1. Don Kloppeone
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 year, 10 hours ago

                Lovely move!!

                Where you at in OR?

                  1 year, 9 hours ago

                  400k. Awful but a very hard season

                  1. Don Kloppeone
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    1 year, 9 hours ago

                    I’ve dropped from 402k to 478k so far this week. Tomorrow likely to make that red a lot redder!

                    16 (-4) from 4....

    My luck factor will probably go down to 5% on FPL Review after Salah and Rodriguez. Brutal

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 10 hours ago

      I don't think being offside counts as being unlucky on that, it's either off or not.

      1. Baines on Toast...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 10 hours ago

        Of course it does. The timing is a matter of chance and not a deliberate intent when the margins are that narrow

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 9 hours ago

          An algorithm on a site isn't gonna recognise that though, it'll go by stats and offside goals aren't counted as a stat, right?

  4. Right In The Stanchion
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 10 hours ago

    Who’s rested for Sterling v Fulham? Mahrez or Torres?

    1. BenDavies
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 10 hours ago

      Torres

    2. Stupendous
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 10 hours ago

      I would guess Torres. Benching someone after a hat trick is daft, although been done before

    3. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 10 hours ago

      Depends on who plays in UCL. Pep prios UCL this season

    4. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 10 hours ago

      Probably Sterling himself again knowing my luck

  5. ivantys
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 10 hours ago

    wow Burke starts yes

  6. Chandler Bing
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 10 hours ago

    Son to KdB yay or nay? Will be priced out the next time KdB rises.

    1. BenDavies
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 10 hours ago

      Obviously wait for tomorrow but North London derbies can be crazy. I'd probably go through with it though if it's a FT

    2. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years

      Find other way, chandler

  7. Al Moon Yeah
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 10 hours ago

    Imagine selling Meslier two weeks ago after back to back 4-0 losses to teams like Palace and Leicester. This game...

    1. BenDavies
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 10 hours ago

      Goalkeepers should never be sold unless on a wildcard. They're all pretty much the same overall

      1. diesel001
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 10 hours ago

        Guaita?

        1. BenDavies
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 10 hours ago

          Even then, it's just not worth a transfer unless you literally have a perfect squad with no other pressing transfers to make

        2. ivantys
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 10 hours ago

          Guaita to Leno in any GW for -4 would have solved my issue long ago

      2. have you seen cyan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 10 hours ago

        Well that’s bad advice but ok, any other player constantly blanking would be removed after 3 weeks. But because a keeper does you keep him for ten weeks? The logic

      3. Ode
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 10 hours ago

        Not true when your gk keeps gets 0-1 points every week

  8. JONALDINHO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 10 hours ago

    Own DCL, Bamford and benched Dallas. Of course it’s 0-0

    1. Party time
        1 year, 10 hours ago

        Same here

      • Salah’s Sonnet
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 10 hours ago

        Hope it stays this way

      • G B
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 10 hours ago

        Good decisions. It's been an open game.

        Just unfortunate so far.

      Raphinia has looked decent for Leeds. Bad pass then but some nice skills.

      Copied & pasted from the BBC website
      There have been 31 shits so far in this game. 31 shots so far. The record (since 03-04) for a Premier League 0-0 is 50 (Man Utd v Sunderland, April 2006).
