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.

    Time to log off fellow Hamez owners.

    This is not our gameweek.

    Second half will just be painful to watch.

      James Rodriguez to
      A Jota
      B Torres
      C keep

      1. tafrère

        A

        1. lespaul
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Could be benched at wolves?

      2. Esalman
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        C surely

        1. lespaul
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Possibly, price will swing this week though

          1. Esalman
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            If you have Salah no need to get Jota. Torres is a rotation threat.

      3. Reeker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        C for one more gameweek

  3. Rhodes your boat

    What to do with sterling?

    Don’t really want to go another week without salah or kdb.

    One option I am tempted by is sterling vardy soucek to salah bamford mahrez for -4 next week

    1. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Captain him next week!!!!

    2. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Why on earth would you get rid of Sterling as part of a -4 ??!!!! He has FUL next. My goodness.

      1. Rhodes your boat
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Was meaning after Fulham sorry

    3. Kannbury
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Hopefully will play 90 v Ful, considering for captain.

    4. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Only thing missing is a missed penalty

    5. Gnu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Leeds certainly create enough chances, I think it was their problem in Championship as well, just not taking their chances.

    6. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      DCL and Rich double up looking good for everything except FPL points.

    7. aborg
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Was the post hit by Harrison been assisted by Dallas?

      1. Gobigorgohome
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        yes

        1. aborg
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Damn...need Dallas to get something from the bench for me after Sterling did not play

    8. F4L
      • 6 Years

      How is this 0-0 ugh

    9. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Camzy called Harrison. I certainly see that he can be a very good differential.

      1. Rligudfootiemanager
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I’ve had him for a few GWs creates crazy amount of chances.

        Will haul massively at one point!

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Hope he scores,you deserve it for owning Guaita 😉

          1. Rligudfootiemanager
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 26 days ago

            And Robbo! Although Dias came off!

        2. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          GW12 for me if the slot allows. Have him in some paid single GW FanTeam squads.

          1. Rligudfootiemanager
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 26 days ago

            I might have to move him to Jota though

    10. Sim Simma 🤷 🔑 🚘
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      I benched Ayling last week, clean sheet. I play him this week and already he's got a YC.

    11. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      So close to Dallas assy

    12. Liberate HK - antichinazi
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Speechless as I own Richarlison and Hamez. FML

    13. Right In The Stanchion
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Hames haul denied by a couple of close offsides. Still likely to go for me though.

        1. noone
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          He's going for sure. For whom though?

          1. Right In The Stanchion
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Mahrez I know will be jinxed although it seems obvious

        2. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Any DCL cappers here?

          1. Big_Andy_GAWA
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Yeah, he's my Vice with the Sterling no show. Should have put the VC on Mahrez! Lol.

        3. diesel001

          Klich shoots wide

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Anyone got any players in the Sheff Utd - WBA game?

          1. Fred54
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            I'm terrible at this game, but not that bad...

          2. NATSTER
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Brewster first on my bench. Hope I don't need him.

          3. DMP
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Ramsdale. Don’t ask.

          4. Kannbury
              1 month, 26 days ago

              With Sterling no show, Brewster if picked but thats looking unlikely now!

            • Carefree Crew
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Brewster (after Sterling was benched)

              I am that bad!

              I've had him from the beginning of the season, as I play 3,5,2. He's bench fodder but WBA was worth 1st sub this week.
              Fingers crossed he starts & hauls!

          5. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Leeds all over Everton, Harrison and Klitch should have been on goal each already

            1. DA Minnion
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              And Bamford.

          6. Niho992
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Ayling and Hamez could have both 10 points already.

          7. Penang Sandman
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Why suddenly Allan decide to play like KDB tonight

          8. Rainer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            Amazing half for 0-0

            1. Baines on Toast...
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Agreed

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Grealish & Werner to KDB & DCL for -4? Need to do it tonight. Yay or nay?

            1. Esalman
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              I'd do it. Actually did Werner>Wilson this week.

            2. Hazz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Selling Werner vs. Leaky Leeds?

              And a Grealish vs. that Newcastle side?

            3. Tommytour
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Get Wilson over DCL

            4. NATSTER
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Selling Grealish ?

            5. KUN+10
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Its Grealish or Son...decisions
              decisions...

          10. diesel001
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Bielsa looks annoyed. Praying to God for his luck to change. Maybe next week against his 'spygate' nemesis, Frank Lampard.

          11. BenDavies
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            This game has DCL 87' written all over it

            1. diesel001
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Yep

          12. DA Minnion
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            So frustrating yet again watching Leeds miss chances.

          13. IRBOX ⚽
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            How has Richarlison not got me any points in that half? Combine that with Sterling and Cancelo no show.. zero jam. Some managers get all the luck

            1. diesel001
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Lateriser, Sterling(c), Jota(vc).

              1. Brosstan
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 26 days ago

                I bet he will still make a point about being unlucky Sterling didnt start

                1. Slouch87
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 26 days ago

                  I bet he won't

                  1. Brosstan

                That's not lucky. He should have had KdB vc.

            2. Slouch87
              • 5 Years

              Expected at least one of them to get something by now...

              Hopefully 2nd half 🙂

          15. djoker_nole

              One of Dallas/Ayling will haul big very soon

                Hopefully Dallas in the second half.

              Got 4 players in the Chelsea - Spurs game tomorrow.

              Need a 2-2 with a Ziyech goal and assist, kane and Son goals and assists and a chilwell goal.

              Too much to ask?

                Same. It will go 2-4. COYS

                • 11 Years
                1 month, 26 days ago

                Why do you only need 1 goal each ?

                1 month, 26 days ago

                Bad news: Kane & Son will blank..

                Good news: Ziyech & Chilwell will both return points.

                3 0 Chels. 🙂
