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.

    So frustrating to own Ayling. Always close to goal or assist, but that's all

      His final ball isn't good enough. If you look at the positions he gets in, you would expect his assists to be much higher. So he is part of the reason why Leeds are not scoring more goals.

        Leeds lack top quality across the pitch.

    Hamez could have 10 pts already.

    But a blank is pretty well on the charts sadly.

      Aye.

    Blame every website who said Mahrez wouldn't start this match... was 100% sure to bring him before changing mind assuming he won't start .

      Rookie mistake

      1. Luca Toni

        you have own your changes eventually..

      Wasn’t a stretch to say he wouldn’t, he was gash against Spurs. Why were you so set on it? And if you were, you should’ve just done it

      1. Luca Toni
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Just for Man City cover, as someone had to score big and De Bruyne was not an option for me due to lack of funds.

      We all learn. Ive also made the mistake of listening to "pro" pundits this season. The FPL "community" is just a bunch of frauds parroting each other, it becomes an echo chamber. Why would they know Mahrez wouldnt start?

      1. Luca Toni
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        You can't blame anyone to complete extent ..Community helps to some extent ..eventually, I take my own decision for changes .. Just in this case backed out assuming he won't start ..

    With only Hamez DCL Robbo Cancelo already, this has been painful

        With Lamptey suspended and Mitchell dropped, I have no bench either. 10 players

  10. diesel001

    Rightfully given offside.

  11. Baines on Toast...

    Hamez could have 15 points already

    1. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      And KDB could have had 20. And Salah 13.

      1. Baines on Toast...

    Another Hamez return down the drain 🙁

    1. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Positive signs though.

      I’m glad I’m not watching as a Hames seller, sounds like he is playing very well!

  15. Brosstan

    Clear offside

  16. TimoTime

    DCL and Bamford look like doing sweet fa

  17. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Selling JRod for a hit is scary to watch. Got me KDB(c) and Jota but it’s very uncomfortable viewing. I think I need him or Rich in my team with DCL

  18. _Ninja_

    0:0 will be a dramatic result

  20. Super Saints
    • 4 Years

    James very unlucky so far

  21. Pino

    Hames goal and assist disallowed

  22. Chucky
    • 7 Years

    Hamez so unlucky... every assist and goal ruled out 🙁

  23. Nightcrawler

    BamFraud get out of my team

  24. FPLShaqiri

    Bamford is so bad at football.

    1. Hattrick Harry

      But your opinions are worse

  30. JJO
    • 8 Years

    Having JRod and Richa those last 135mins is pure agony
