Calvert-Lewin on the bench as Everton visit Liverpool

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m) makes an important return for Everton but not how his 34.0% Fantasy Premier League ownership would have hoped.

After missing two matches with a hamstring problem, the mid-priced forward has been named on the Toffees’ bench for the Double Gameweek 25 Merseyside derby.

With Josh King (£5.4m) also among the substitutes, Richarlison (£7.9m) leads the line for Everton today with James Rodríguez (£7.7m) in support.

Carlo Ancelotti has opted for a rather defensive set-up behind those two, choosing three central defenders as well as Lucas Digne (£6.1m) and Seamus Coleman (£4.8m) with Tom Davies (£5.2m), André Gomes (£5.3m) and Abdoulaye Doucouré (£5.2m) forming the central midfield trio.

They also have Allan (£5.2m) to send into the mixed, making his return from injury on the bench and awaiting his first Premier League minutes since Gameweek 13.

Such a set-up might make life difficult for Liverpool’s key Fantasy assets, Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) in his usual right-hand station of the front-three with 43.2% overall Fantasy ownership.

That said, the Egyptian has four goals over the last four Gameweeks and has led the league for shots in the box and shots on target during that period.

Sadio Mané (£11.8m) and Roberto Firmino (£9.3m) complete the attack although they are owned by just 5.4% and 5.1% respectively.

Despite conceding three times at Leicester in this configuration, Jurgen Klopp has not changed his back-four.

That means Ozan Kabak (£5.0m) partners Jordan Henderson (£5.4m) at centre-back with Andrew Robertson (£7.2m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.4m) in the full-back positions.

Double Gameweek 25 Line-ups

Liverpool XI: Alisson; Robertson, Henderson, Kabak, Alexander-Arnold; Thiago, C Jones, Wijnaldum; Mané, Firmino, Salah.

Everton XI: Pickford; Keane, Holgate, Godfrey; Digne, T Davies, Gomes, Doucouré; Coleman; Rodríguez; Richarlison.

Double Gameweek 25 so far…

Burnley collected their ninth clean sheet of the season as they drew 0-0 with West Bromwich Albion on Saturday afternoon.

However, owners of their defensive assets can probably consider themselves a little fortunate to benefit from the shut-out.

It looked, at first, that a red card for Semi Ajayi (£4.8m) in the opening period would severely dent the Baggies’ ability to trouble Nick Pope (£5.6m) but the exact opposite happened.

West Brom were comfortably the more attacking of the two outfits in the second half at Turf Moor and really should have found the net on multiple occasions.

Mbaye Diagne (£6.0m) had a close-range effort cleared onto the crossbar while Matheus Pereira (£5.4m) fluffed a golden chance in front of a largely unguarded goal after a square-ball.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£4.6m) really should have blasted the loose ball home, instead playing a sideways pass back to Pereira whose second effort was cleared off the line by James Tarkowski (£5.3m).

The centre-back is currently on for maximum bonus while Pope, who made two saves, is projected to receive two. Matt Lowton (£4.5m) is on two bonus as well, despite a late yellow card.

      Watched the end of the Burnley game. My god so lucky to get a clean sheet! Pereira how did you not score?!!!

        WBA should have had 3 or 4. No wonder they’re going down.

        That wasn't their only clear cut chance either!

        Why are people so afraid of not having Salah in their team?
        Imagine what you could do with that 12.5 million?

        1. Bushwhacker

        6. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Him being the 2nd highest scoring midfielder probably has something to do with it

        7. SADIO SANÉ
          • 5 Years

          I didn’t even consider having him, which also means a haul is inevitable

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Because he has 4 goals in his last 4 games and faces Sheffield and Fulham in his next 3 games?

          Depends who you get for him. Pool form isn't great but he's back in form, just 2 shy of last season's goal tally.

          Second highest points scorer in the game and since the Zambian witch doctor curse ended after the Burnley loss, he has scored 33pts in 6 games. That is pretty good tbf.

          1. diesel001
            • 4 Years

            *33pts in 5 games.

        Question for stats people. Can you breakdown 'Chances' and 'Big Chances' between those that arise from defensive errors (i.e. giveaways) and those that arise from positive attacking play (i.e. creativity)?

        There was a time not even long ago where I though of even selling Salah, but the more I watch this pool side, and Salah individually, I really am coming round to selling him. Offering nothing to my team, and for that price, Jesus why am I holding onto him.

        1. SADIO SANÉ
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          This is a solid jinx attempt

        2. Im New Here
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Cause he scores goals

            1. UNDERWORLD7
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

            • 8 Years

            He’s scored 7 goals in his last 7 games.

            Thiago’s quality speaks for itself but in this current Liverpool side, it just doesn’t work.

            Maybe if it was a settled team and he played in a midfield 3 with Henderson & Fabinho every week, it’d be different, next seasons hope.

            He’d be perfect in City’s midfield.

            1. Would Ed Woodward
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Liverpool just haven't had that kind of player in their midfield and it's been very successful for them, thought he'd be a great signing but looks completely out of place.

            Remember when Klopp fielded a full strength side against Aston Villa youth team in a cup match.

            Now they talk of mental, physical fatigue and injuries 🙂

                Still players were fatigued at the time and you are then risking injuries..

                  The reason Klopp played them was to keep them match fit. If players don’t play for 2/3 weeks they lose that sharpness

                    But on the other hand it was him who said City had an advantage because of their Covid enforced break.
                    So their might be more to it and in hindsight it might have been better to have been a bit rusty, than to have the injury crisis afterwards.

              I think Klopp can sometimes be a victim of his own competitiveness.

                    Dier would have been handy but game time could be an issue

                    Digne can work but I don't trust their defense.

                    You can try Pereira if looking for some attacking option.

                          All the indictment of Liverpool and nobody seems to put any of it on the manager. I think Klopp has been found out this year; poor squad management, no attempt to vary their play when it’s obviously a bad system for their current personnel. Thiago is useless to them on the pitch.

                            Not sure about found out but Klopp deserves plenty of blame for sure.

                                For sitting at 6th with 7 draws and 7 losses despite having a squad that is definitely top 4 quality.

                                  Please find one fair injury comparison in league history.

                                  I want 6 injuries in the same position. 3 preferably season ending in the first third of season.

                                  Go on. Whole internet at your disposal. Just find one example in the history of the league. Go on. I dare you

                                    Blah blah blah. There are only 3 dedicated CB's injured btw. You can't possibly include Henderson Fab as CB's. Terrible back up recruitment by Liverpool . No sympathy.

                                    I couldn't care less about the excuses. This Liverpool squad should be playing much better than they are, the squad is still full of fantastic players. Injuries stopped them from being title contenders, poor performances has them 6th in the league behind West Ham and Leicester.

                                    Bro, you guys don’t rate Matip or Gomez until they are out of the squad and then they are the “missing piece”. It’s VVD and that’s really it..

                            Because other people are more knowledgeable than you? Poor squad management? LOL.

                            I agree to an extent, not signing a CB in the summer to replace Lovren has potentially proven costly. But you cant legislate for the amount of injuries to the spine of the team. Then it's the knock on affect on the rest of the players.. lack of confidence, losing the feeling of invincibility etc etc.

                            Thiago being weirdly scapegoated. Hes performing as well as, if not better than a lot of the other players at the moment. Better judging when the team is more stable and Fabinho is back in the no.6 role, doing what I imagine will compliment Thiagos game very nicely.

                              Yeah we all see what’s it’s done, but the fact that this has been going on for six months and no solutions have been found is inexcusable imho

                            His hands are tied in some ways. Had to play a dead rubber game, with a near full strength team, against Midtjaland (sic) where Jota was injured, because they won 2.5m for winning three points. Wasn't given any sort of decent budget to get quality CBS in January. Pressure is getting to him though. Was trying to claim they were in City game at 1-1. Truth is Salah played for pen and City had them penned up to their goal line getting Alisson to make mistakes.

                              After watching Burnley today, I’m considering it for sure.

                                  Yeh I have to transfer him in though but currently thinking a) ings to kane For no hit or if grealish out will Also go for Barnes

                              It's time to seriously consider dropping Salah from the team, especially if chasing rank/point.

                                Worth a shot, low risk, high reward.

                                  Yes. Dont remember Salah having a nice record against Chelsea. So next GW he might not be an exciting pick.

                                Excellent signing this Kabak. In other news, Thiago is useless

                                    What about the hype which said he was a god like midfielder?

                                      That was Niho and he's very simple.

                                    People don’t understand a holding midfielder do they? Say the same about Fabinho in this role.

                                      There are plenty of holding mids playing way better than him currently.

                                      Thiago is not a holding midfielder. He is a fouling midfielder

                                    Would it be crazy to go next GW without Spurs cover?

                                        Spurs cover just means Son or Kane or both. I would be nervous going in with neither.

                                            Id be nervous too because majority will captain Kane and Son.

                                          Lol at selling Dige, Tark & Pope on WC 😆

                                          (I'd have benched Digne & Burnley were sooooo lucky not to concede today, insist anyone in similar boats to not beat themselves up!)

                                            Don’t do a WC for one week. Burnley were lucky as anything this morning.

                                              Oh yes, my WC was for the next few weeks or so. Just funny. Digne the only one that's annoying if he does well.)

                                            Exactly the same sales for me. Couldn't believe Brom didn't score those chances
