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
      • 1 Year

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

    2. Lazaretti
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 hours ago

      Selling now

    James Rodriguez needs to go...

    A) Jota
    B) Grealish

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

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

  8. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years

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

    1. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 9 hours ago

      True. Tough fixtures coming up though

    2. Dosh
      • 7 Years

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

    Ayling benched

      Your a lot and older than I imaged

  11. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years

    Come ooooon Bamford ?

  12. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

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

    1. BenDavies
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 9 hours ago

      Dictionary definition of kneejerk

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

        GW12, so not knee-jerk.

      2. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1 year, 9 hours ago

        Completely incorrect.

    That's the 4th offside goal?

    1. diesel001
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 hours ago

      Put it wide

  15. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 10 hours ago

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

  16. Vazza
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 9 hours ago

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

    1. Big_Bear
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 9 hours ago

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

  17. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years

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

    1. TorresMagic™

      Offside so not important.

  18. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years

    DCL and Bam Bam blanks confirmed Have them both 🙁

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 hours ago

      Cheapskate front line that!

  19. Flynny
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 9 hours ago

    Double Chelsea defence plus ziyech

    Triple villa

    Bruno and vardy (c) still to play.

    Not sure what to make of that....

  20. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1 year, 9 hours ago

    My casual rival Captain DCL! Deserves it tbh

  21. Fred54
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 9 hours ago

    Have Hamez, Richa and Bamford in this game.

    The DCL blank is probably worth more...

  22. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Rare second blank coming up here for DCL.

    1. ivantys
      • 1 Year

      Should have another from that jammy assist

  23. FPL DONKEY

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

  24. diesel001
    • 5 Years

    Rodriguez and Salah owners must be annoyed

    1. Lazaretti
      • 4 Years

      o/

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Have both. Absolutely apoplectic.

    3. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 9 hours ago

      And KDB owners to some extent

  25. BenDavies
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 9 hours ago

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

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 hours 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
        1 year, 9 hours ago

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

    2. Ode
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 hours ago

      Lol ofc you say this after 90 minutes

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 9 hours ago

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

        1. Ode
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 9 hours ago

          Yh sure

    3. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 9 hours ago

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

    4. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 9 hours ago

      Many thought it would be a high scoring fixture.

    Doucoure has been Leeds’ best player.
