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.

      No need to spread the salt cuz you didn't captain (or own) him.

        Anyone here successfully taken a season break from fpl? Considering it after 12 straight seasons

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          Was going to have next season as a 'gap year but I think I'd miss it!

        2. Bushwhacker

          I keep a team but with variant attention. Stopped really paying attention after covid ruined this season and made it a crap shoot. Just made changes and left it, didn’t care about hits. Kept it fun.

        3. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
          • 5 Years

          I took a midway break this season for a few weeks

        4. Qaiss

          Yeah I did in 18/19 season 3 years ago, quit after GW9. It was good

        5. Mr. O'Connell hates DG…
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Strongly considering it. 10 blanks so far on FH adding fuel to the flame.

        6. Ian & Zen

          1 month, 17 days ago

          no, but I bet you'll regret it when the season starts and join in week 2 and will be playing catch up, so I wouldn't.
          You can always aim to play the game differently, like just switching off after each game week and assess your team a couple of hours before each deadline...you'll eliminate those knee jerk reactions and you never know you might do better?

          1. HM2
            • 1 Year

            I wouldn’t even say i’m doing that bad. Currently ~60k but feel like i’m not enjoying the game anymore and spending too much time overthinking my team (not something that i could change easily. This gameweek just magnifies this feeling. Spent hours debating what to do to hold onto a 30 lead in my ML, gad Richarlison captain all week and switched to Son this morning. 30 point lead is now a 16 point defecit and he still has many more players to play.

          I did once. Set up a team, though. Then decided to leave it after one week. Had a lot going on that year, and didn't really need the distraction. I didn't really miss it at the time, but was extra excited to start the following year. Not sure I'd do it again, though. It makes football so much better (and worse!)

          Yes. I gave it a miss last year. Did not miss it at all. Guy in my work convinced me to join a league this season. Retiring permanently next week. Won’t miss it. It’s a great game but not for me any more at my old age

          I was going to this season because of having a newborn back in sept but it's turned out to be my best ever season! I think I was around the 24k mark last GW. I may take next season off and enjoy football naturally again haha

          1. HM2
            • 1 Year

            I think i’ve forgotten what it feels like to enjoy the premier league for the actual football and not fpl repercussions haha

        10. SAY MY NAME
          • 5 Years

          no - i've been playing every year since 2006 or whichever year it started (and played the CH4 game before that which seemed to be the forerunner) - but last 2 or 3 seasons have been gruelling, maybe i'll just do an almost ghost team next season, just pick some good 'uns and leave it be

            Funny thing is I’m in a cup semi final this week in my mini league. Guys against me hasn’t looked at his team in three months and is level with me. Sometimes maybe we over think this game

      • Bushwhacker
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Such a soft penalty. I guess to make up for the red?

        1. Big_Andy_GAWA
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          And the penalty that should have been on the lead-up to it.

      • Feanor
        • 13 Years

        Switching from Watkins to Ings on my FH is so damn typical. Thought Watkins was an injury doubt.

        1. Echoes
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Yeah, was a doubt. Still think Ings was the better option on paper and there's a game still to go.

          Once had some good chances too. Could have had a brace on another day. Keep the faith!

          Was in about 38% of teams last week
          Now plenty of FHs in play and was a popular transfer for non-FHers

          Wow, great to be part of a top league. Can see some big changes today. FH are the winners with Leicester and Rich. Big debate about which week was better for FH , 36 or 37 and it turns out it’s both (shame about the rule)

          66 here, but without bonus points which rightnow should be 13. Have Rich /C).

          Ah ffs. What a muppet. 67 is a great score. 'Disaster' my rear end

          1. asr
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            If Richarlison continues to haul, rank goes down. I'm sorry if you don't understand how EO works.

            1. griffzinho
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              67 is an epic score so if you mention the word 'disaster' in the context of Richarlison EO of just 115%, which is tiny drop in rank as you are an owner. Guess you are just feeling real sorry for yourself that you might lost a few places from Richie despite your GW score probably being well in the top 25-100K (I'm on 54 pts and mine is 234K GW Rank. You will comfortably go up and are on a FH, which most people don't have the luxury of. Actually you said 'complete disaster'. Haha.. FFS. Crying over an EO of 115% when you hold is being a total baby. Stop bragging about your score and if you do do then don't refer to it as a 'complete disaster'.

              1. Hiiler
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 16 days ago

                I think he said "not a complete disaster" . 67 points is good score righnow yes. Although it all depends what is his overall rank and how well his GW will go on . Rightnow 67 is a good score though.

                1. Hiiler
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  1 month, 16 days ago

                  And you need to think about that as well as he said FH team 67 points. This also counts as FH teams should get more points then those who are not using chips usually. But yeah still for this GW rightnow 67 is good score in my mind also as I told before .

                  1. griffzinho
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years
                    1 month, 16 days ago

                    Yera anyone complaining after 67 points so for needs a kick in the rear end tbh. FH or no FH. That is a fact.

          Sess' 8pts looking at me first on the bench over Myk and Castagne's blanks. Was questioning Myko for a while over him but figured to just take the punt

        Do you think Salah will play last round if they win vs Southampton?

          Could be a sub. Wolves should be a win regardless.

        I somehow don't have Richarlison on FH.

        Suckered in by Villa attack. Luckily I have double Leicester attack but this gain is not gonna be as much as I hoped.

          Can’t have em all. I decided to go Vardy over Richarlison.

              It came down to me not being on FH and wanting Vardy more than Richarlison in 38.
              Probably would of had both if on FH.

            I have 11 starting DGW's and both Vardy and Richarlison. So it should be quite easily affordable. FPL down and don't remamber my budget, but it is not so big. Maybe 104 or so and some of it is unused.

          Same here. Cout and Ings major let down, Imagine getting Barnes and Richa instead

          Was tricky this week between Kane vs. Ings vs. Vardy vs. Rich
          I avoided Ings as I thought Watkins would start but that meant I went Coutinho over Maddison as I wasn't sure I wanted to double up knowing Rodgers rotation and Maddison having a knock recently

          Imo Rich was a Must especially if FH.

          Can't handle people having multiple Everton players in their team - has never happened before!
