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.

    Who to ditch? WHU unlikely to have a DGW so...

    A. Coufal -> Mee
    B. Struijk -> Lowton

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Yeah I’m slowly working off WH assets. Coufal makes sense to me even with the SHU game.
      Is Stuijk playing lately? He has the double so keep him if yes.

  5. Jinswick
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    I guess another benefit of the BB24 / WC25 / TC26 route is that you can have Dallas/Raph/Bam for their DGW25, then transfer Bamford/Raph out and bench the other 2 in 26.

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 9 days ago

      My current plan is to have Dallas, Bam and Raphinha in and bench them all in 26. Hope to avoid a chip in 29 and Leeds have one plus good fixtures elsewise.

    2. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Why bench them gw26?

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

        I guess it’s not the worst fixture, but AVL are a decent side and other teams have DGWs. Could even still BB and play them I suppose.

    3. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      I counted i already have 12 dfw players for gw 26.
      Save chips for 29, 33 and other dgws

      1. Salan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        dgw26 fixtures confirmed?

        Has it? I rarely ever come here during game days

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          I still appreciate this sort of quality humour 😛

  9. Pukki Blinders
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Burnley have 1 CS in the last 7 games, surely there’s no point ripping teams apart to bring in one of their defenders...

    1. Esalman
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Totally agree.

    2. Top Mark.S
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      "Ripping apart" "bring in one player"

      😆

      1. Gnu
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        This 😆

      2. Bad Kompany
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        A really cheap one too

      3. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Seeing people taking -8 hits for them...

        1. Bad Kompany
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          How would it cost 8 points to do one transfer?

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 9 days ago

            By bringing in everton players and other assets smart guy

            1. Bad Kompany
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              Each one is only a -4. Doesn’t make a difference if you’ve already taken a hit

              1. Pukki Blinders
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 9 days ago

                Ok Mr. technical

        2. Gnu
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Really?

    3. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Also they will have to have a go at these teams and not park the bus

    4. Bad Kompany
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Didn’t allow Brighton much this gw. Just switched off on a corner. The 6 before this gw were against tough teams. They always do really well against bottom teams.

      How hard could it be to bring a burnley defender in anyway

    5. A Kun & Mateta
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Pope the best bet from Burnley although price could be a factor in people tweeking defence. Some might be downgrading eg a Pool defender to Burnley to help get a City mid or maybe the like of Hames.

  10. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Am I crazy to consider Mendy to Martinez even though I can get Pope?

    1. A Kun & Mateta
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      No but I would get Pope, esp if wildcarding in a few weeks.

    2. ivantys
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Not crazy, really feel Burnley defence is a trap.

    3. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

      Play Bamford vs Arsenal or Son vs Man City?

      1. Chelsea91
        • 2 Years

        Bamford vs Arsenal

      2. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        Bampot

      3. A Kun & Mateta
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Bam, I'm possibly benching Son for Lookman.

      4. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year

        Surprised to see so many Bams, Son got a double digit haul last time he played City...

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

      Bampot has played in every game this season. He really needs a rest tonight, especially with Leeds frantic style.

      And vs toothless CPL would be a perfect time for a full benching

      1. Pukki Blinders

          Anyone thinking of benching Grealish vs Brighton? Brighton stats at home are elite...

            no

            Brighton and elite don’t go together 😆

            Yes, thinking of whether to play him or Bamford

        3. akhilrajau
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Pope
          Digne, Coufal, Maguire, Stones
          Bruno, Salah, Gundogan, Sterling
          Antonio, Watkins
          bank: 0.6m, FT: 1
          Bench: Martinez, Adams, Dallas, Barnes

          A.. GTG. save FT
          B. Barnes, Antonio/ Watkins -> Raphina/ward-pownse, Bamford(-4)

          For both, i will get Bamford next gw. For B i can have DCL now(dgw) and next gw i can replace dcl with Bamford (dgw). so next gw raphina/ward-pownse and Bamford (dgw). is it worth that -4

        4. AMBELLINA PRISE

          Would you start Coufal (Sheffield) or Stones (Spurs and Everton)?

          1. Holmes
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            Stones

          2. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 9 days ago

            Is that even a question

            1. AMBELLINA PRISE
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              2 months, 9 days ago

              Afraid of pep roulette. Been a victim more than enough times

          3. De Gea is GOAT
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            Valid question if you ask me. Agree with Pep roulette and i can easily see him being rested for one of the games especially with Laporte fit. The only reason i wouldnt play Coufal is WHU's defence has gone downhill a bit recently.

          Still can’t decide on a strategy for BB, TC and WC. What would you suggest for this team below? Got two free transfers and 6.1 in the bank.

          Martínez
          Cancelo - Dias - Mee - Robertson
          Gündogan - Raphinha - Fernandes - Salah
          DCL - Watkins
          (Button - Bamford - Anguissa - Dallas)

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 9 days ago

            Upgrade your bench, then BB24 and WC30. If you’re struggling you can always WC before 30

            1. TAT
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              Interesting. Any reason why BB24 looks better than a BB26, which seems the popular option for us with BB left?

              1. Pukki Blinders
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 9 days ago

                Allows you to keep Leeds and play them in gw29, and bench them in gw26. BB26 is also good, just depends on which week is better for your team

              2. Pukki Blinders
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 9 days ago

                Also opens up doors to TC26

                1. TAT
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 8 days ago

                  Yeah, that's a good point. Leeds assets are a bit of a headache when thinking about the BB in GW26. Something to think about until the deadline. At least with two FTs, it will only take a -8 at most to get the bench in order.

          No offense to anyone who is but.... why are people BBing this gw??

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 9 days ago

            People are holding Leeds for BGW29, smart way to play if you’re saving chips

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              And what if you have an FH which can be activated in 29?

              1. Pukki Blinders
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 9 days ago

                Then that’s a different story

            2. ivantys
                2 months, 9 days ago

                Doesn't make sense, you could BB in 26 and still hold Leeds?

            This game really isn't that difficult. I pay a patreon $19.99/month and he tells me what to do. With his help I'm in the top 500

              Patreon really are the perfect way to play this game. Don't need to make any of your own decisions and then can blame them when it goes wrong.

              What more could you want.

                My patron is never wrong. If I have a bad GW it is due to the rubbish advice on FFS.

            So who is everyone captaining this week? I'm thinking Gundo but I believe he will blank twice..

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 9 days ago

              Yeah Gundo has got his goal tally for the season already.

                  Will he start twice though?

                  1. ivantys
                      2 months, 9 days ago

                      He plays all the difficult games and only gets rested in the easier ones.

                How does triple Burnley defense sound to get for 2FT if thinking of BB ?
                Bench would be like De Gea, Coufal, Soucek and Bamford

                Would you consider McCarthy, Mitchell & Soucek > Pope, Keane/Digne & James for a -4pt hit to give this BB side for DGW24:

                Pope* - Martinez
                Stones* - Keane/Digne* - Cresswell - Justin - Dallas
                Gundogan* - Foden* - James* - Salah - Bruno
                DCL* - Bampot - Antonio

                    So good week to BB?

                    Martinez - Justin - Dallas - Antonio

                    1. Mweene
                      • 7 Years
                      2 months, 9 days ago

                      I've got the same bench apart from Kane instead of Antonio and choosing not to bench boost.

                      See 2 pointers for Justin and Dallas.

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

                        Martinez is a possible CS and Antonio is vs SHU 😮

                        Both Justin & Dallas have potential attacking returns.

                        Can't see myself having much better optio. That this.

                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 9 days ago

                    Keane or Digne or even Mee?

              • POTATO
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                I have Cresswell and Antonio - do you think their FPL output will be negatively affected during matches that Soucek is absent?

                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 9 days ago

                  No I think they are both good ti start gw24

                2. Mweene
                  • 7 Years
                  2 months, 9 days ago

                  He won't be absent.

                    • 7 Years
                    2 months, 9 days ago

                    If he was then it would affect Cresswell as there would be less chance of an assist from set-pieces and crosses.

                Initial thoughts are to WC25 in order to attack the double gameweeks between 24-27.

                Martinez, Pope
                Cancelo, Dias, AWB, Holding, Mee
                Salah, Bruno, Son, Gundogan, Soucek
                Bamford, Antonio, DCL

                1FT, 2.7itb

                As a one week punt before WC, which player is likely to return the most points in gw24?

                A - Tarkowski (cry, FUL)
                B - Rodriguez (FUL, mci)
                C - Digne (FUL, mci)
                D - Rashford (wba)
                E - Aubameyang (LEE)

                    Digne or Tarkowski.

                  No idea. If I had to guess Rahsford.

                  Be interested who you would want for the dgws that you don’t have already.

                  Feels a good team.

                    I would want Kane for sure plus a team that has 15 dgw players for 26.

                    Think Southampton will have dgw's in 26 & 27 as well as 25 so will look to bring Ings & Mccarthy in
