Everton v Brentford team news: Calvert-Lewin starts, Keane out

The final Premier League match of the day is another big one, both for Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers and for those clubs embroiled in the battle to avoid the drop to the Championship.

Everton host Brentford, knowing that a win will ensure Premier League safety with two games to spare.

Kick-off at Goodison Park is at 16:30 BST.

Frank Lampard makes three changes to the Toffees team that drew 0-0 at Watford in midweek.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Andre Gomes and Jarrad Branthwaite all come into the side, with Demarai Gray dropping to the bench.

Fabian Delph is injured, while Michael Keane fell ill overnight and also misses out.

Brentford are unchanged from last Saturday’s 3-0 home victory over Southampton.

    I have James and Mount for next week but will Mount be put on the naughty step after his pen miss?….

      Nah, that’s too harsh
      Won’t be surprised at a “rest” on Thursday though

    2. St Pauli Walnuts

      Would be a terrible manager if that was the case

    Guys I'm distraught

    DDG and sa in goal
    No cleanies in def
    No Leicester players
    Zaha cap
    Triple spurs attack

    It's karma for all the mud feast hiding comments I make. Can't even make those after this debacle. Maybe next week will cheer me up until then no more 🙁

      I hope football gods forgive you and you come back stronger next GW. Till then, there's always alcohol 😛

        Jokes aside, it's just a game, mate. Your banters are pretty okay half the times at least.

      Might need to change name to Mudcrawler instead...

          What is it you always spout ... .we love to see it, yes we do. Or something along those lines.

      • Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Liverpool vs. Wolves snd City vs. Villa are both exactly the same for W/D/L for all teams with B365. That is pretty mad!!

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Pool not winning at soton would change that

          1. Big_Andy_GAWA
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            More rotation?

      • HuttonDressedasLahm
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        53 -8
        And still a green arrow

        Weird

        1. HuttonDressedasLahm
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          No Pool though will kill me for sure

        2. RedRo

          I hot 47 and a red arrow, seems a bit unfair 🙁

      • Cheeto__Bandito

        Reckon it will be Watkins, Coutinho, Buendia vs Burnley like the game ended today. Ings due a rest after 3 games in a week.

        1. Echoes
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Ings was taken off at 70 today though. Could still start.

          1. HuttonDressedasLahm
            • 12 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Hope so
            Had Richarlison (c) all week but took an 8 point hit to take out Pukki and bring in Ings (c)

            1. Echoes
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Yeah, think he starts and could do well against his former club.

      • Gazwaz80
        • 2 Years

        Anybody going James Captain next week? just something different from the boring Son captain 🙂

        1. HuttonDressedasLahm
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Don’t have either

        2. Cheeto__Bandito
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 10 days ago

          has to be golden boot Son against bottom league

          1. Gazwaz80
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            You’d have thought Kane would have let Son take the pen today….

            1. Cheeto__Bandito
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 10 days ago

              I think he would give it to him 3-0 up but not at 0-0

              1. Gazwaz80
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                True…

            2. Sun Jihai
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Team finishing top 4 matters most and Kane is a great penalty taker as seen by the finish today. Kane 87% success rate, Son has hardly taken any but has a 64% success rate.

              1. Gazwaz80
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Thanks for the stats and thanks for the other replies fellas, maybe I’m just too sentimental 🙂

            3. Shineonme
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              No chance son will take a pen with spurs fighting for top 4. Only way son takes a pen if spurs are 3 up with 20 mins to go

            4. St Pauli Walnuts
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              Maybe if there wasn't anything else on the line but they're going for CL and Kane is probably best pen taker in the league. That pen was perfect. Saying that, they could have been 7-0 up and Kane would probably still have took it 🙂

        3. Shineonme
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Son or Kane cao for next week for me.

      • Bobby
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        think i'll need to claw back approx 40 points in the final week to catch ML lead. Doable or too late?

        1. Echoes
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Doable, but a bit improbable. Chances depend on factors like chips left, which player both of you got and the differentials, nailing the C choice, and so on.

        2. Art Vandelay
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          To have any sort of realistic chance you need to captain someone your rival doesn't have. There's definitely a chance.

          1. Bobby
            • 12 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            no more chips. Its the hope that kills you maybe!

        3. St Pauli Walnuts
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Hard but doable. I'm 1st in my cash ML at the moment but have swapped leads 3 or 4 times over last month or so, and often with 25-50 point leads. You'll need to take a hit or two and captain a differential, hope Son blanks etc.

        1 month, 10 days ago

        I watched the entire Spurs and Everton games thinking I had Son (C) when it was actually on Richarlson the whole time. Evidently forgot to hit "save" after I tried to move it from Rich to Son last night. Very pleasant surprise but totally undeserved.

        1. HuttonDressedasLahm

          Theme the breaks in FPL

            **Thems the breaks

      • HuttonDressedasLahm
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Biggest score line next week has to be Chelsea right
        Home v awful
        Spurs fixture good but it’s at Norwich

        1. Gazwaz80
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          I’m thinking the same…

        2. Bobby Digital
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Chelsea have nothing to play for tho

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Of course it's doable...............Just very highly unlikely!

          Eating your own head?

            Apparently Prince could do that, had to have a rib removed though.

      • HM2
        • 1 Year

        Best GW38 differentials if you’re chasing 10-20 pts?

        1. PartyTime
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Vardy, Barnes & Maddison.

            1. HM2
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Don’t trust Rodgers to not rotate

              1. St Pauli Walnuts
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 8 days ago

                If you're chasing you have to take a risk and there's a lot of haul potential there.

              Away to Burnley who are fighting for their lives?

                1 month, 10 days ago

                Even playing deeper he'll come forward for a goal some point.

                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  Cheers, i’ll add him to the watchlist

                    • 6 Years
                    1 month, 10 days ago

                    Bad shout, I wouldn't

                      1 month, 10 days ago

                      Based purely on set pieces he'll be in amongst it, Shelvey issue aside.

                      1. TheTinman
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 6 Years
                        1 month, 10 days ago

                        Bruno hasn't been taking that many set pieces has he? Targett takes the left sided ones and if Trippier starts he will gobble up the rest.

                        1. Monty the Magpie

                          Most surely be on the receiving end, imo - you know what he's like when gets a sniff. Longshot maybe, but he's definitely starting in my team.

            Wolves couldn’t even defeat Norwich. What do they even offer? Would love to see them down except they get a better manager

              They started the season well. Unfortunately their floor as a team seems to be really, really low

              1. PartyTime
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  Clearly the manager’s fault

                If you could use one example to describe a team on the beach, Wolves would be them. They've totally let go.

                1. PartyTime
                    1 month, 10 days ago

                    Yeah. They’ve been on the beach since December I think. Boring football team, rubbish manager

                  We didn't have Neto,Jonny and Boly,Jimenez isn't himself after last year's injury,Jota and Doherty have gone and above all Nuno has gone.

                I’m on 14 from 7, including captain Son. Anyone doing any worse?

                Gutted I’ve thrown my ML in the penultimate game week.

                  How many points is your rival ahead by?

                    • 5 Years
                    1 month, 10 days ago

                    I was 1 point behind at the start of the week. 30 behind now.

                    Not totally unassailable, but feeling pretty low about my chances as it stands.

                      Anything can happen. A lucky differential captain punt in GW38 and the title is yours

                    Yikes! Just gotta focus on next gameweek. Could be a great one

                      Hope so. It’s just a silly game at the end of the day. Just frustrating watching that gap open up over the day 🙂

                    Gutting, try and put it behind you mate and focus on next gameweek like Partytime says. This game can be really harsh

                      Yeah, it is just a game at the end of the day. Not the end of the world

                  Remember at the start of the season people were saying Leeds were going to push on and challenge for the top 8

                  Serious dose of 2nd season syndrome

                    tbf to them they’ve been plagued with injuries all season.

                      Bielsa ran them rugged

                    1 month, 10 days ago

                    Yeah, Top 6-8 was probably a stretch, but I feel they'd still have comfortably survived had they not sacked Bielsa.

                    People were talking about Arsenal getting relegated after 3 games too

                    After trailing my main ML (2nd, 3rd and 4th at different stages of the season) since the GW9 debacle, finally back in the lead of 11 points. And the lead will probably remain in the similar range given the players the top 3 of us have are almost similar due to FH. GW38 is going to be a nail biter.

                      It’s always a bit more satisfying coming from being behind all season to win it at the last minute. Good luck mate

                        Cheers mate. Funnily enough, the SGWers pushed me into the lead in a DGW here, as most of our DGWers are the same. Will need to resist my annual need to take a hit in 38 though 😛

                        Tbh, some of my best performances have been when I'm coming from behind.

                      Similar here. In game week 29 I was down 123 points to the leader. I've won every week (albeit) two weeks by one and three points. I just surpassed him and lead by 11 points. He has 4 players that are different from mine left to play (Son C) and I have 7 different from his (That's including Richarilson C) on a FH. His chips are gone and I have BB for 38 with at least two maybe 3 players that will be on my bench that play (Don't expect but 4-10 pts from it).

                      Picking the same C or if different nailing the right one may be crucial.

                      Best of luck to keep first place!

                    Who's more important for the final game?

                    A. KDB (AVL)
                    B. Kane (nor)

                      Oh mate don’t ask me that. I’m going to just about go with Kane as I feel his ceiling will be a little higher with that fixture

                      Probably King Kev.

                      But Kane is a pretty steady bet.

                    I did Laporte+Jota->Son+Sessegnon(-4) and i am on 23(-4) points with Dubravka coming in for Sa and Fraser/Broja for Foden,Coutinho(c),James/Taa/Robbo/Saka still to go.10k fall,down to 27k.I need a miracle.

                    For last round:
                    A) Mount
                    B) Foden
                    C) Alonso
                    D) Laporte
                    E) Get two for -4 and bench Richarlison

                      Son probably. I think Vardy will be good differential

                          Agreed. I'm taking a hit to bring him in.

                              He is the answer, regardless of the question

                        Behind top 10k by 33 points right now... Basically need to make up another 15 points this GW to have any shot right?

                          I’d look at the whole picture rather than what you “need” this GW. Some of your GW38 players could haul, and if they have a low EO, propel you into the top 10k.

                        Ok who’s up for a challenge? I’ve got a FH for the final week with a budget of 105.3 Anyone fancy building me a team? Hanging onto a slender lead in my league.

                          1 month, 10 days ago

                          Lloris
                          James Alonso TAA Robbo
                          Son Mount Foden Saka
                          Kane Toney

                          1. Old Bull

                            1 month, 10 days ago

                            Was thinking of Sess for Spurs but actually Lloris is arguably the best GK bet

                            1. Sun Jihai
                              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                              Yeah Sess looks great tbh, I had him in my FH and want to keep him!

                            Think Mendy or Chelsea keeper perhaps?

                            Bowen merits a place. As does Maddison.

                            I like the Toney pick too.

                          1 month, 10 days ago

                          Raya, Foster
                          Zinchenko, Schar, Alonso, Sess, Tsimikis
                          Saka, Kenneh, KDB, Son, Salah*
                          Kane, Nketiah, Tony

                          That was going to be my FH team in 38 until Salah looked like he wouldn't be playing this week and instead of taking a 16 pt hit I played my FH this week.

                          Your value is considerably greater than mine. Feel free to upgrade wherever you please.

                          *Not sure if he will be playing (starting) now.
