Digne fit to start but King only among the subs despite Calvert-Lewin absence

Two sides with a pair of fixtures in Double Gameweek 24 meet on Merseyside this evening.

Fulham are Everton’s visitors, with kick-off at Goodison Park at 19:00 GMT.

The hosts are missing Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) and Jordan Pickford (£4.8m), both of whom were ruled out by Carlo Ancelotti on Friday – but the duo could be back for the visit of Manchester City in midweek.

Another Everton asset who was carrying a flag in Fantasy Premier League, Lucas Digne (£6.1m), makes the starting XI tonight.

Ancelotti has made two changes from the Toffees’ previous Premier League outing, with Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.8m) and Seamus Coleman (£4.8m) recalled.

Michael Keane (£5.1m) and Calvert-Lewin are the men to make way.

Despite Calvert-Lewin’s absence, new singing Joshua King (£5.5m) is only among the substitutes.

As for Fulham, deadline day signing Josh Maja (£5.5m) makes his full debut and takes the place of Ivan Cavaleiro (£5.3m).

Aleksandar Mitrovic (£5.5m) misses out after testing positive for COVID-19.

Ola Aina (£4.5m) for Antonee Robinson (£4.4m) is the only other change that Scott Parker has made from the Gameweek 23 draw against West Ham United.

Calvert-Lewin featured in the top three for both FPL transfers in and out in Gameweek 24, with those Fantasy managers making an early move to recruit the England international left short-changed by the forward picking up an injury in the EFL Cup in midweek.

Richarlison (£7.9m) picked up some of the slack, with 347,604 Fantasy bosses making the move for the Brazilian.


Everton XI: Olsen, Coleman, Holgate, Godfrey, Digne, Doucoure, Andre Gomes, Rodriguez, Davies, Sigurdsson, Richarlison.

Fulham XI: Areola, Tete, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Aina, Reed, Lemina, Reid, Loftus-Cheek, Lookman, Maja.

      Is Siggy playing as a false 9 ?

      Justin and Souchek for Dunk and Raphinha for a hit.

        just get Raphinha for Soucek
        The other is not worth a hit, especially as you'll be unlikely to play Dunk.
        Come to think of it, who will you drop for Raphinha?

          Really hope Gundo can be fit for Everton though it looks unlikely. If Fulham can dominate them...

          1. estheblessed

            Gundo unlikely according to who?

            Eh?

            He’s missed one game which Everton won 1-2 away at Wolves.

          What's the situation with Antonio? Likely to start? I have Dallas first on the bench...

          1. dark91
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            I believe he is fine. Probably not fit to start/play '90 but I am confident he will feature tomorrow

            Bench is possible too.

          Could this pay off??

          Foden > Raphinha ft
          Watkins > Ings -4
          Mitchell > Stones/Cancelo -8

          1. Aster
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Not a fan of Watkins to Ings move.

              Southampton looking terribble.

            RMGW25WCGW26BB team

            Martinez - McCarthy
            Dias - Stones - Shaw - Dier - Holgate
            Bruno - Son - Grealish - Gundogan - J Rod
            Kane - Ings - Watkins

            Will have Bamford and Raphinha in place of Watkins and J Rod for DGW 25 and switch them out for a hit in 26.

            Thoughts? 🙂

                  Lied happily without him for him barren 6 game spell

                  Enough firepower elsewhere in that team to compensate imo

                      It’s been a tough period for many reasons. We are champions and we will fight like champions, until the very end. We will not allow this season to be defined by the recent results we’ve had. That is my promise to all of you.

                  Jrod Dier McCarthy and maybe even Holgate are bad options
                  imo bro otherwise I’ll be going for something similar

                  They are all rotation risks now

                    Can’t find anyone better for that price tbh

                    Who are you thinking of instead?

                Holgate looks clueless. Fulham running circles around him.

                  Into the top 6k with tonio, 3 city and pope left.

                  Raphi has been a godsend for me flying up the ranks. Ultimate differential. Can see a alot of transfers in for him next week

                  Fulham are a talented team without a decent finisher.

                  Bench boost fail if Antonio is out for sure, ah well. Had a good one last year tbh so was expected

                  Leicester defence worth it on WC? Or too expensive? Fixtures are good.

                      Chances he starts both DGW26 fixtures for BB? Can be fodder after that.

                  When is is likely that GW26 doubles will be confirmed?

                      Sounds like there’s likely to be plenty of time to sort out a GW25 WC before knowing the GW26 doubles.

                  • 11 Years

                  I have Ings Bamford Raphinha and Dallas. Save the WC and not use it in GW25?

                    Think that’s right unless you want to get ahead and get Kane/ings
