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.

    Actually thought everton had weathered the storm and Pickford was going to get me some rare points before he leaves my team! Lowest scoring point scoring keeper in the league says it all. Can’t believe how much worse their defence has got this season.

      Pickford is bad, yes. Maybe even really bad. That goal was 100% on the defender though, throwing his leg out and letting a shot go between his legs. Anyone with half a brain who's been nutmegged once never gets nutmegged again. He needed to hold the front leg up off the ground, keep it close to the other as the ball is kicked, then time it out to block the shot if it does indeed go to the far post while still initially being a position to block a shot going between his legs.

        They look similar from above and the position was the right back

    My patience is running thin with James Rodriguez

    1. Vazza
        4 months, 15 days ago

        Thin? Mine was non existent after his display against Fulham last week hence I sold him for Jota ahead of this gameweek

      DCL goal please I am on my knees. I feed on the tears of Leeds defence owners

      1. Daniel - When to BB?

      James Rodriguez needs to go...

      A) Jota
      B) Grealish

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA

        Either. A short if you have WC. B long if you don’t

    5. Daniel - When to BB?

      Leeds players are so tempting. Ayling, Dallas, Klich, Harrison, Bam Bam

      1. The Ilfordian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 15 days ago

        True. Tough fixtures coming up though

      2. Dosh
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 15 days ago

        A better striker for Leeds would've been a season keeper

    6. FPL_Hazards

      Bamford and DCL playing
      Ayling benched

      Cheers

      I remember when Everton were going to win the league.

        Your a lot and older than I imaged

    8. Daniel - When to BB?
      • 11 Years

      Come ooooon Bamford ?

    9. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 15 days ago

      Rodriguez -> Harrison/Raphina GW12 could be interesting. Not sure what I'd do with the extra funds though

      1. BenDavies
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 15 days ago

        Dictionary definition of kneejerk

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

          GW12, so not knee-jerk.

        2. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 15 days ago

          Completely incorrect.

        That's the 4th offside goal?

        1. diesel001
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 15 days ago

          Put it wide

      • Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 15 days ago

        Leeds look the much better team. James quality but other than that Everton look below average

      • Vazza
          4 months, 15 days ago

          Do we have any members here who are yet to use their wildcards?

          1. Big_Bear
            • 6 Years
            4 months, 15 days ago

            Yeah I'm waiting until the final GW possible. Hopefully some DGW news and some form of snow blizzard in December.

        • Daniel - When to BB?
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 15 days ago

          Oh my what a miss for Alioski. Could have passed it to Bam Bam though

            Offside so not important.

        • Daniel - When to BB?
          • 11 Years

          DCL and Bam Bam blanks confirmed Have them both 🙁

          1. Super Saints
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 15 days ago

            Cheapskate front line that!

        • Flynny
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 15 days ago

          Double Chelsea defence plus ziyech

          Triple villa

          Bruno and vardy (c) still to play.

          Not sure what to make of that....

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          My casual rival Captain DCL! Deserves it tbh

        • Fred54
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 15 days ago

          Have Hamez, Richa and Bamford in this game.

          The DCL blank is probably worth more...

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

          Rare second blank coming up here for DCL.

          1. ivantys
              4 months, 15 days ago

              Should have another from that jammy assist

            4 months, 15 days ago

            Got Bamford on my WC this week. Can't wait to swap him for Antonio

            • 4 Years

            Rodriguez and Salah owners must be annoyed

            1. Lazaretti
              • 3 Years
              4 months, 15 days ago

              o/

              Have both. Absolutely apoplectic.

            3. Vazza
                4 months, 15 days ago

                And KDB owners to some extent

            4. BenDavies
              • 8 Years
              4 months, 15 days ago

              Not sure why anyone would captain DCL in this fixture really. Leeds have been solid defensively. Just not the right game to captain.

                • 4 Years
                4 months, 15 days ago

                I would still really fancy Werner next week vs Leeds(it's the right game for him, not for captaincy but I mean in general)

                Non-owner btw

                1. BenDavies
                  • 8 Years
                  4 months, 15 days ago

                  I can definitely see Werner performing well in this one yeah.

                  If he said it earlier u would have said "game nit iver yet"

                4 months, 15 days ago

                Always felt like chasing points to me but Leeds have not been solid defensively.

                Many thought it would be a high scoring fixture.

              Doucoure has been Leeds’ best player.
