How Everton, Southampton and Fulham fared ahead of their Double Gameweeks

Manchester United 3-3 Everton

  • Goals: Edinson Cavani (£7.9m), Bruno Fernandes (£11.5m), Scott McTominay (£4.9m) | Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.2m), James Rodriguez (£7.7m), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m
  • Assists: Marcus Rashford (£9.6m), Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.5m), Luke Shaw (£4.9m) | Calvert-Lewin, Doucoure, Michael Keane (£5.1m)
  • Bonus Points: Calvert-Lewin x3, Cavani x2, McTominay x1

Everton players warmed up for their Double Gameweek 24 with a stirring comeback not once, but twice, at Old Trafford.

And the architect of those fightbacks just happened to be the Toffees’ most popular player in Fantasy Premier League, Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m).

Dom Da Bomb

.

A net 19,382 Fantasy managers sold the striker heading into the Manchester United clash; a strange decision when he’d scored his first goal in eight starts on Wednesday.

And further pain could be incoming should the England international prosper in home matches with Fulham and Manchester City.

Calvert-Lewin set up Everton’s first goal, when they were 2-0 down, and then scored a dramatic late equaliser to make it 3-3.

The maximum bonus award meant he brought in 12 points for his 39.6% ownership – his third double-digit haul of the season, but his first since Gameweek 9. That, just out of interest, came against Fulham.

Significant Others

James Rodriguez (£7.7m) made it two goals in three starts and, having played no part in Gameweek 22’s win at Leeds, could be a tempting investment for the upcoming double header.

Toffees manager Carlo Ancelotti’s post-match comments did raise certain injury concerns, however:

James felt his calf was tight at the end of first half but he could play, although not all the game. He scored a fantastic goal, then we took him out to avoid problems.

Defensively, it was a sixth straight match without a clean sheet for Everton and a barren one, attack-wise, for Lucas Digne (£6.1m), the 6.7%-owned left-back with seven assists to his name this season.

Digne didn’t create a single chance all match, although he was top for crosses (eight), as Ancelotti’s side sat deep and played on the counter at Old Trafford.

United We Stan

Metrics 2

No Double Gameweek for United, but matches against West Brom and then Newcastle look promising, as does the form of their key assets.

FPL’s most popular player, Bruno Fernandes (£11.5m and 58.8%), scored for the second game running, as did Edinson Cavani (£7.9m), who now has two more goals than Anthony Martial (£8.7m), but from nearly 500 minutes less pitch-time.

A third straight clean sheet eluded the backline, although full-backs Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.5m) and Luke Shaw (£4.9m) chipped in with assists.

Paul Pogba (£7.7m) returned to the starting line-up but lasted just 38 minutes, with his manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer providing a non-committal update:

It looks like a muscle injury, thigh, so we’ve just got to check him tomorrow (Sunday) and have a scan and get him treatment. Hopefully he’ll recover quickly.

Man United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Lindelöf, Wan-Bissaka; Pogba (Fred 39), McTominay; Rashford, B Fernandes, Greenwood (Tuanzebe 90+3); Cavani.

Everton XI (4-3-3): Olsen; Digne, Godfrey, Keane, Holgate; Davies (Iwobi 75), Gomes, Doucouré (King 81); Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Rodríguez (Sigurdsson 69).

Fulham 0-0 West Ham United

  • Bonus Points: Kenny Tete (£4.3m) x3 Aaron Cresswell (£5.7m) x3 Joachim Andersen (£4.5m) x1

A generally awful London derby between Fulham and West Ham ended goalless but harmful for the 20.5% of FPL managers with Tomas Soucek (£5.4m) in their teams.

The Hammers midfielder was given a straight red card for what was (to nearly everyone but referee Mike Dean) an accidental elbow on Aleksandar Mitrovic (£5.5m).

He’ll now serve a three-match ban, pending an appeal that gives the Premier League a golden opportunity to reverse one of the worst decisions in recent memory.

It was a measure of the match that Soucek’s misfortune, which took place in the 98th minute, was the major event of a turgid affair during which the two sides managed a mere three shots on target between them.

Fantasy interest was centred on West Ham’s increasingly popular mid-price assets but there was also an audition of sorts for Fulham players ahead of the Cottagers’ Double Gameweek 24.

They’ll travel to Everton and then Burnley and any temptation to invest in their players will probably revolve around defenders, unless new signing Josh Maja (£5.5m) – on as a late substitute in this one – proves to be the answer to the goalscoring woes that has seen Fulham score just six goals in their last dozen outings.

Scott Parker’s team have kept a so-so five clean sheets this campaign, but two of those have now come in the last four Gameweeks.

Goalkeeper Alphonse Areola‘s (£4.5m) 77 points is a top ten tally, while his 77 saves puts him in the top five.

Then again, he’ll be facing two teams with some of the lowest shots totals in the league – Burnley are second-worst with 196 and Everton only three places higher on 215.

Meanwhile, full-backs Kenny Tete (£4.3m) and Antonee Robinson (£4.4m) have no attacking returns to their names, although the former was awarded maximum bonus on Saturday for a fine all-round display.

West Ham’s FPL favourites were kept quiet by a combination of Fulham’s tenacity and their own sluggishness; a galling state of affair for those managers who made Michail Antonio (£6.7m) and Jesse Lingard (£6.0m) two of the top five for Gameweek 23 transfers in.

But the 24.2% who own Aaron Cresswell (£5.7m) were treated to maximum bonus and a nine-point haul that keeps him at the top of the FPL defenders chart.

Antonio signalled to be substituted late in the game but boss David Moyes wasn’t too concerned, saying:

I don’t think it’s anything serious for Michail Antonio. I think he just felt as if he was beginning to fatigue.

Fulham XI (4-3-2-1): Areola; Adarabioyo, Andersen, Tete, Robinson; (Maja 79), Lemina (Mitrovic 79), Reed, De Cordova-Reid (Zambo Anguissa 83); Lookman, Loftus-Cheek; Cavaleiro.

West Ham XI (4-2-3-1): Fabianski; Cresswell, Ogbonna, Dawson, Coufal; Rice, Soucek; Benrahma (Yarmolenko 56), Lingard, Bowen (Noble 56); Antonio (Fredericks 74).

Newcastle United 3-2 Southampton

  • Goals: Joe Willock (£4.7m), Jan Bednarek (£4.9m) own goal, Miguel Almiron (£5.6m) | Takumi Minamino (£6.0m), James Ward-Prowse (£6.0m)
  • Assists: Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.1m), Almiron | Ryan Bertrand (£5.0m), Che Adams (£5.8m)
  • Bonus Points: Almiron x3, Willock x2, Ward-Prowse x2

Nine-man Newcastle won a thriller against Southampton, with impressive debuts and injury worries adding extra spice to already tasty proceedings.

There is a school of thought that loan signings could prosper in this season of major fixture congestion as the relative inactivity which prompted their moves should mean they’re fresher than most.

Such a notion wasn’t harmed by events at St James’ Park, with loanees Joe Willock (£4.7m) and Takumi Minamino (£6.0m) both scoring and catching the eye.

Willock was especially impressive, earning two bonus points in a Newcastle side currently re-inventing itself as a genuine attacking force.

The Magpies scored three goals in a match for only the second time this season, Miguel Almiron (£5.6m) leading the way with a brace on his way to a season’s best 15-point haul, while Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.1m) – playing up front – chipped in with two assists.

But the three points came at a price.

Jeff Hendrick (£4.5m) was sent off for two yellow cards, Fabian Schar (£4.9m) was stretchered off with a knee injury that will keep him out for a number of months and the 24.1%-owned Callum Wilson (£6.8m) and full-back Javier Manquillo (£4.2m) both succumbed to muscle injuries.

Boss Steve Bruce was understandably downbeat despite the victory:

Unfortunately, it looks as if we’ve picked up an awful injury with Manquillo, Fab Schar’s looks a bad knee injury and of course Callum Wilson now has a hamstring too, so in that respect in the cold light of day tomorrow, I’ll assess it all.

As for Southampton, they did everything but score an equaliser against the depleted Magpies, but there was at least a crumb of comfort thrown the way of defender Jan Bednarek (£4.9m) and his 8.9% ownership.

His red card given against Man United was rescinded, enabling him to play on Saturday. Having made an FPL-record -7 score in midweek, he was initially credited with a second straight own-goal. That harsh decision was later reversed, his Gameweek 23 total soaring to zero as a result.

While the Saints were better offensively than they have been in a goal-shy couple of months, concerns still linger at the back ahead of their Gameweek 25 double-header – Ralph Hasenhuttl’s troops have shipped 18 goals in their last five matches, with even an easing of the injury crisis and a line-up that was something nearing full strength failing to stem the flow of goal concessions.


Newcastle United XI (4-2-3-1): Darlow; Lewis, Schär, Hayden, Manquillo (Krafth 24); Shelvey, Hendrick; Saint-Maximin (Dummett 67), Willock, Almirón; Wilson (Joelinton 36).

Southampton XI (4-4-2): McCarthy; Bertrand, Vestergaard, Bednarek, J Stephens; Minamino, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Redmond; Ings, Adams.

    Still can’t decide on a strategy for BB, WC and FH. What would you suggest for this team below? Got two free transfers and 5.4 in the bank.

    Meslier
    Cancelo - Stones - Taylor
    Gündogan - Son - Fernandes - Salah
    Bamford - Antonio - Adams
    (Martinez - Soucek - Coufal - Konsa)

    Looking at Meslier + Adams > Pope + DCL

    1. JustPark
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Controversial but unless you don't want to keep Adams for the double, I would consider getting rid of Antonio instead.

  2. Dosh
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Points on the bench since gameweek 19: 17, 18, 23, 13, 27. I am really bad this season. Captain calls been equally bad.

    1. runupstream
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      I feel your pain dude

      1. runupstream
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        30 pts benched in GW23 and Antonio captain. Ugh

    2. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Out of interest did you BB in 19? I did too and have similar benching headaches since then.

      1. Dosh
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        No mate. But selling Vardy and KdB gave plenty of funds to spend.

  3. NATSTER
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    When should we know the result of West Ham's appeal on Soucek?

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I would think before the Tuesday FA Cup fixture so if it’s reversed he can play.

    2. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Likely Monday.

  4. Nightrain_
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Good morning guys
    What's your opinion on this setup ?

    Areola
    Cancelo / Dias / Digne / AWB
    Grealish / Salah / Bruno (VC) / Gundogan (C)
    DCL / Martial

    Martinez / Bamford / Saka / Coufal

    1. Is Gundogan a better captain pick considering WBA is also very poor against a strong away MUN ?
    2. Is playing Martial better compared to Bamford vs Arsenal ?
    3. If you need to take a hit, which one you'll consider replacing ?

    Thanks

  5. HonestBlatter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    I have triple City, Pope and DCL + 2FTs.
    --> Planning to WC GW25 so who would you bring in as DWG24 punts?

    1. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I'm looking at Keane/Digne & James, in addition to the ones you've listed as having.

      That's it

    2. MagnetBPS
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Have the best squad for GW 24, even if you don't use your FT.

  6. MagnetBPS
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Had a massive advantage when FPL experts were only in FFS. Now, all of my rivals are looking at FPL Tips/FPL show/ Letstalkfpl and 10k seems unreachable. I used to have Alonso when no one knew about him, but now each differential is talked about in the FPL show.

      What's your rank now?

      1. MagnetBPS
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        140K

        1. TorresMagic™

          Can get there with 3 chips or less.

          1. MagnetBPS
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            It seems that my rivals are transferring and captaining exactly what Andy/Mark does. Make things incredibly difficult.

            1. TorresMagic™
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              Plenty of GWs to make lots of ground. GW18-GW20 was pretty big for most on here.

              1. MagnetBPS
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                True though. Triple city+Cresswell+Antonio made me climb the ranks from 800k to 140K.

    2. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      So you were only good when competing against people who had no clue?

      1. MagnetBPS
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        I was always better than them with differentials and captain, but now it feels like they have an exact team of Andy's and it hard to gain any advantage.

        1. Warby84
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Make your own decisions, i bought in Son(c) for a hit this week and took out Soucek.. That would have been ridiculed on here. 81 (-4)

          1. MagnetBPS
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Of course, playing my own game will bring the most points, but sometimes you bring in players like Antonio/DCL for differential and you see the whole league did exactly the same move. One move could destroy your rank like I did early this season McCarthy-->Guaita

            1. Warby84
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              Playing your own will also make the game a lot more fun... Also a lot of people follow and copy the highest number of transfers in as well.. Remember it’s only a game

          2. Don Rogers FC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            I thought bringing in Son and captaining him was template on here. Its what Mark and Andy were both saying they would do. That is partly why I had faith in doing it.

            Selling Soucek was a bit more individual though, i must admit.

  7. Pukki Party
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Tarkowski and Mee over Pope this week? Weak opponents means less shots for Pope, could also mean Burnley get more corners and better chance for centre backs goals?

    1. Neo-Viper
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I am in the same jeopardy. See below. Thoughts of having two premium keeper is haunting me with already existing benching headache.

      1. Pukki Party
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Yeah i currently have Ramsdale as second keeper, perfect as i never want to play him over Martinez,

        1. Neo-Viper
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          And me Johnstone. Never want to play him over Martinez.
          Just pondering where Burnely defence this week is worth. They haven't had cleansheet for 4 games in a row now.

    2. Bavarian
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Lowton and update elsewhere

  8. JackQualt
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Why are the price change predictors all broken?!? Made transfers last night so as not to get priced out and they haven’t happened; DCL was at like 105?!?

    1. MagnetBPS
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      This year the prediction is inaccurate.

      1. JackQualt
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Yeh, do you know why?

        1. MagnetBPS
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          From what I know each year they change the algorithm, but usually, they get it right from GW10+

          1. JackQualt
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Feels like it’s been all year; but this is true, thanks

        2. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Usually inacurate when dgw coming up, chips being used.

          1. JackQualt

            • 4 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            As I say above it feels like it’s been all year not just let gw’s; but you are right this is normally what fools them; normally of a player was >105% it was still pretty certain, got back down to 90 this morning lol, thanks for the reply though

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years

      Give my points back...

      1. Neo-Viper
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Mine too

  9. aapoman
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Early thoughts? 2ft and 0.1itb

    Martinez
    Cancelo Stones Lowton
    Sterling (c) Salah Bruno Son Grealish
    Antonio Watkins

    Forster; Coufal, KWP*, Brewster

    Son and Antonio -> Hames + DCL? Then wc in gw25 + bb in gw26.

    1. navin
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Antonio to DCL and Forster to Pope maybe?

      1. aapoman
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        can't afford it.

  10. Neo-Viper
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Johnstone to Pope for Burnelys Double?
    Martinez as the main keeper.

    Can't get my head around doing Coufal to someone like Mee or Pieters.

    Or just roll over the FT?
    Please suggest.

    Martínez
    Dias AWB Stones
    Son Bruno Salah Gundo
    Bamford DCL Anto

    Johnstone Justin Coufal Souchek

    1. navin
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      U will have same GK as me, Pope and Martinez

      1. Neo-Viper
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Navin, aren't you worried about the Benching headache?

        DCL this week. Souchek the last and Bamford to its previous one. Justin too. Sums my whole season TBH. 25 odd points on bench every week.

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I’m rolling. Had a similar thought but I’ll need that extra 1.0 to maximize 26 and so would need to spend two xfers to do it in effect.
      Could well be worth it though.

      1. Neo-Viper
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Your last statement, I believe, was ok for the transfer of Johnstone to Pope right?

  11. navin
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    GW26 team based on Ben Crellin's Likely DGW. Bench boost possible?

    Pope (tot, LEI)
    Justin (ARS, bur)
    Dias (WHU, WOL)
    Stones (WHU, WOL)
    Targett (lee, TOT)
    Son (BUR, avl)
    Bruno (che, cry)
    Salah (shu, CHE)
    Gundogan (WHU, WOL)
    DCL (SOU, avl)
    Watkins (lee, TOT)

    Sub
    Fabianski to Martinez (lee, TOT)
    Cresswell
    Soucek to **
    Bamford (AVL)

    Please suggest replacement for Soucek (5.2). ITB 1.5. Total 6.7m

    Or to better utilize the $$

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 10 days ago

      If you downgrade Cresswell to someone with a decent double can you get to Grealish?

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Does Shaw fit in that scenario?

        1. navin
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Thanks a lot.

          3 transfer needed but only can afford Lindelof

          1. Fabianski to Areola
          2. Soucek to Grealish
          3. Cresswell to Lindelof

          1. RogDog_jimmy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 10 days ago

            That’s still pretty interesting.
            I bet there’s some random defender at 4.8 instead of Lindlof that has more upside.
            Or one at 4.4 as a flyer that lets you do Martinez still.

            I’m eyeing Cresswell > Shaw and Antonio > Kane for that week and a -4. Happy to have a bunch itb

            1. navin
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              In order to get Kane, i might drop Salah but see how it goes.

              Anyway thanks for your suggestion.

          A few team that can fit in that particular week for Villa as per crellin's schedule. I just pick the first team to appear to know where and how does my team look in GW26.

              Oh I see you're just putting a random team that comes out, no wonder everton had villa too. Just thought that the fixture in 29 would be priority here.

        Morning DZ - Thoughts on this bunch going in DGW24*

        Pope*
        Cancelo* - Stones* - Mee* - Coufal
        Gundogan* - Salah - Grealish - Bruno (c)
        DCL* - Antonio

        Martinez - 1. Bamford 2. Dallas 3. Burke

        Play:
        A) Stones with potential rotation but DGW
        B) Bamford with Arsenal away?

        Soucek to foden?

          If you have only the one midfield city spot then surely Gundo. If you two then Foden ain’t a bad double up. Fun player to have when he’s on the pitch.

        Gundo or Foden for this GW. Ta

          Absolute certainty given my luck recently and the fact that I've got a Leeds triple up.

        2 FTs going into GW24. Salah to Sterling seems obvious. Roll a second for GW25...

          Same team as me and I’ve bench AWB. I don’t like it.

          1. POTATO
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            I captained Son (successfully) this week, and now I'm temped to bench him - feels wrong.

      • Esalman
        • 11 Years

        Martial has wba and new next. Surely he'll play some part, might even haul against these? If you had him would you keep?

        3. Piksau
          • 6 Years

          No...go for a DGW player...

        2 months, 10 days ago

        Suggestions on what to do here? (Assuming soucek is overturned and free to play)

        Pope
        Stones / cancelo / maguire
        Salah / son / Fernandes / gundogan / soucek
        Antonio / DCL

        McCarthy / bamford / targett / Dallas

        2FT, 2.8 ITB

        1. Piksau
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Maguire and Son could be benched because United can't defend for their lives and Spurs play City...I would sell maguire and get in Digne/Keane. Save a FT if you want as more DGWs could be announced by end of week.

        Not gonna stay up until 3 am to see how Bamford does - I've blown this GW badly.

        Smooth: backing out of my intention to bring in Pope and sticking with Martinez.
        First time my captain did something since GW17.

        Rough: Defender making his first mistake in like ever, knocking out my double City defence.
        Defender I brought in on my FT scoring an own goal, wiping out my double Chelsea defence.
        Missing a penalty
        2nd highest scorer sat on the bench.

        Will all come good next GW. right? Riigghtt????

        1. Piksau
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Messed up my GW badly too....can just pray....
          marked my way up my mini league due to making practical movies and captain choices....started nitpicking my team once i got up there and thus led to my downfall....
          Just look at form, but most importantly look at fixtures up ahead....thats the only way to go.....
          Cheers!

            I had I think 8 or 9 green arrows in a row until now. Just gotta take it on the chin and stay the course.

          Oof, hope so 🙂

      • Piksau
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Current Setup:
        McCarthy
        Dallas Coufal Cancelo
        Son Salah Fernandes Gundogan
        Antonio Watkins Bamford
        Subs: Johnstone Soucek Justin Dier
        4.1M ITB, 2 FT

        - Planning to get in DCL but who to remove? most obvious choice is Antonio with Bamford having a DGW up ahead and Watkins will have a couple down the road.
        - Second transfer should i go for Burnley defence or triple up on City(Dier out)?
