The Premier League season is still a number of weeks away, but all of the teams have now returned to pre-season training as they prepare for the upcoming campaign.
That can only mean one thing – it’s time to start thinking about Fantasy Football again.
Everton finished eighth last year, and will be hoping to push for the European places next season as Marco Silva enters his second season at the helm.
Check out the Fantasy Football prices for the Tof squad.
Maarten Stekelenburg (£4.0) – Even when Pickford was going through his lowest moments last season, the England international was never going to be dropped in favour of Stekelenburg. The Dutch keeper is coming towards the end of his career and will struggle for opportunities again next season.
Seamus Coleman (£5.5) – Perhaps not the force that he once was down that right flank, but Coleman can still do a job. Everton’s first-choice right-back was directly involved in four goals last season, so he could be in the running to make some Fantasy sides this year.
Michael Keane (£5.5) – A regular at the back for the side last year, Keane had a fairly consistent campaign, earning international recognition along the way. Given his relatively modest price, Keane is worth considering for managers eyeing a bargain.
Yerry Mina (£5.5) – The Colombian center-back had a season littered with fitness issues last year, preventing him from establishing himself as a regular for Everton. Will be pushing for a starting berth next season, but it is a concern that his injury problems could resurface.
Leighton Baines (£5.0) – Has been a fantastic servant to Everton for over a decade, but he made just six appearances in the top-flight last season. Clearly just a back-up option to Digne now so will only be on the bench again next year.
Gylfi Sigurdsson (£8.0) – Has now been a Premier League
Richarlison (£8.0) – After continuing to impress in the Copa America final for Brazil, Richarlison has proven he has bags of potential. Finished as joint-top scorer for the team last season alongside Sigurdsson, often chipping in with vital strikes. The 22-year-old will only get better from here.
Bernard (£6.5) – Everton fans will want more from Bernard next season. One goal and four assists was a modest return for the winger, who should be delivering more given his ability. Arrived with plenty of hype after impressing with Shakhtar Donetsk though, and could be worth a gamble now that he has fully settled in to English football.
Theo Walcott (£6.5) – Did net five goals from the wing last season, but fell out of favour towards the end of the campaign. Started just one of the last nine league games, and is unlikely to feature in too many squads for the upcoming season.
Andre Gomes (£5.5) – Signed permanently from Barcelona
Tom Davies (£5.5) – Unable to get a run of games with the team last season, with Silva preferring the likes of Idrissa Gueye and Gomes instead. Failed to get his name on the scoresheet either. Not the player you are looking for at this stage.
Idrissa Gueye (£5.0) – Does some fine work in the middle of the park, but only provided two assists last year. May also be on his way out of Goodison Park
Ademola Lookman (£5.0) – An exciting young prospect, but really struggled to break in to the starting line-up last year. Was almost exclusively handed cameo appearances off the bench as he remains some way behind Richarlison and Bernard in the pecking order.
Morgan Schneiderlin (£4.5) – Started the side’s last four league games, but had a miserable campaign other than that in 2018/19. He’s likely to only be on the fringes of the squad again next year, as his career continues to stutter following his troubled time at Manchester United
James McCarthy (£4.5) – Once an ever-present in this Everton
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.0) – Won the Under-20 World Cup in 2017, and showed glimpses of his potential last season. However, just six Premier League goals highlighted why Everton are linked with a move for a striker
Cenk Tosun (£6.0) – Has not been the signing that Everton hoped he would be. Largely restricted to the bench last season, and it would be a shock if he got much more game time next year.
