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. UNDERWORLD7

      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!)

    1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left

      Yes. Cancelo in

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 5 days 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
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

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

    3. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Transferring Cancelo in was a terrible error (in hindsight)

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

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

    4. james 101

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

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

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

    5. RAFA THE GAFFA

      What did you do mate?

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Kane, Son > Vardy, KDB (-4)

        Can’t believe I caved!!

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          And what’s went wrong so far?

          1. Don Kloppeone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 5 days 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
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 5 days 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
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 5 days ago

                Lovely move!!

                Where you at in OR?

                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 5 days ago

                  400k. Awful but a very hard season

                  1. Don Kloppeone
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 3 Years
                    3 months, 5 days 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....

  3. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

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

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 5 days 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
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 5 days 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
          3 months, 5 days 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
      3 months, 5 days ago

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

      1. BenDavies
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Torres

      2. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

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

      3. ivantys
          3 months, 5 days ago

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

        • KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Probably Sterling himself again knowing my luck

      4. ivantys
          3 months, 5 days ago

          wow Burke starts yes

        • Chandler Bing
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

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

          1. BenDavies
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 5 days 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 - I had 4 Spurs GW1
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            Find other way, chandler

        • Al Moon Yeah
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 5 days 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
            3 months, 5 days ago

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

            1. diesel001
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              Guaita?

              1. BenDavies
                • 8 Years
                3 months, 5 days 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
                  3 months, 5 days ago

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

              3. Trophé Mourinho
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 5 days 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

              4. Ode
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 5 days ago

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

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

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

            1. Party time

              Good decisions. It's been an open game.

              Just unfortunate so far.

                Please Everton get a goal. Preferable James/DCL

                  I'll try... DCL is never scoring in this game..

              5. Right In The Stanchion
                  3 months, 5 days ago

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

                  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).
