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.

    Richarlison deserves a benching next game after this sort of a performance. 🙄

    Who is (or will be) Chelsea’s key attacking asset(s)? I’m looking to ship out JRod and wondering whether to gamble on Pulisic so soon after coming back from injury, whether I should go with current favourite - Ziyech - or someone else?! I sold Werner for Vardy this week with a view to getting a Chelsea midfielder soon. Thoughts welcome. TIA

        only Werner

        Ziyech. Just be prepared for a bumpy ride.

        Pulisic will be carefully used when he returns and his minutes and whether or not he starts will be a constant source of frustration. Go Ziyech or Mount even.

          I would gamble on Havertz

        Hames to Jota or Mahrez???

        I own Salah and Torres

          Depends on midweek.

          1. Stupendous
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Fair

        2. BOATIES FC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          I would say Mahrez for fixtures

      • Henning
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Stupid to do DCL, Zaha and Rodriguez to KDB Wilson and Jota right?

        1. Fred54
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Deadline was yesterday.

        2. BenDavies
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Getting rid of DCL after his 2nd blank in 10 games is probably a bit premature

        3. the_duke
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Don't ditch DCL yet, other 2 100%

          • Stupendous
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            I dont think that's stupid. They've all got the form and fixtures so it's hardly points chasing either!

            Looks good to me

          • Gudjohnsen

            For -4 I think those are good moves

          Horrific FPL Saturday. Sunday and Monday to redeem?

            • 5 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            These spread out games over several days make it very hard to judge your week until the final match played

            1. BenDavies
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              True

          I'm not gonna pull the trigger yet put have no Man City at present.

          A) Bruno and Robbo to KDB Dias/Laporte
          B) Bruno and Kane to KDB Jesus
          C) Bruno and DCL to KDB and Bamford

        6. Dosh
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Kalvin Phillips really makes Leeds tick

        7. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Beautiful Bamford blank.

        8. Africa United
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Meslier you beauty grab another save I'm greedy af

        9. Giggs Boson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Disappointing from Bamford. Expected something in this game...

          1. Utopsis
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 29 days ago

            He's so un-clinical. He really should be scoring that one Pickford saved with his feet

        10. Railwayman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          DCL. Hamez, Bamford in my team = 6 points.

          Dallas on my bench = 8 points.

          Simple question, what to do with Hamez and Bamford ? Sell both or first one, then monitor the other one for one more week?

          1. Noah’s Ark
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Wilson for Bamford seems logical enough

          2. jomikijiq
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Why would you sell Bamford? I will probably buy him in GW12/13

            1. Railwayman
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              He is looking more and more like the player who missed 30+ big chances last season in Championship, that is the reason.

        11. tafrère
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Going for Vardy (C) and Hamez instead of KDB (C) and Wilson such a defining moment of my season so far.

          1. Baines on Toast...
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Calm down, Vardy hasn’t even Played yet

            1. tafrère
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Even 30 pts from him will only match the other two.

        12. Pedram
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Pickford turned into Buffon

        13. BenDavies
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Think it may be time to go for Leeds defence lads

            • 4 Years

            If Lamptey continues to frustrate I might look at Dallas

          DCL blank is a little meh, but isn't he highly captained overall? Silver linings.

            Choose one

            A) Vardy + Grealish
            B) Wilson + Bruno Fernandes

                  Haha! I bet. Sell or hold? Have DCL

                A little sluggish but motivated.

                  Thoughts on moving him for Jota and Son for KdB?

                  No salah... have kane

                  1. Plant Based Footballer

                    1 month, 29 days ago

                    There are a bunch of fixtures still to pan out, including champions league. Jota certainly is in better form than Rodriguez. Son is on par with KDB.
