Digne reverts to left-back in attacking Everton line-up | fpl.wiki

After a brief stint at left midfield, Lucas Digne (£6.0m) returns to full-back in an attacking line-up from Carlo Ancelotti.

At his pre-match press conference on Friday, the Toffees chief spoke about his team needing to get the best out of James Rodriguez (£7.7m), Richarlison (£7.8m) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m).

“We have more consistency now defensively and it’s true most of the game [against Leicester] we defended instead of attacking. We want to attack more but to be able to defend well is important. One of the qualities of a team is to read the situations.

When we have the defensive line deep, James [Rodriguez], [Dominic] Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison have difficulty showing their quality, they are not defenders. We have to give them more opportunity to have the ball and use their quality.” – Carlo Ancelotti

Ancelotti looks to have followed through on his pre-game assertion, with Seamus Coleman (£4.8m) regaining the right-back spot ahead of Mason Holgate (£4.8m).

In midfield, Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.8m) partners Abdoulaye Doucouré (£5.2m), who returns from a one-game ban having collected five yellow cards.

That could be in a 4-2-3-1 or 4-4-2 set-up, with Richarlison either set to operate from the left of an attacking midfield trio or partner Calvert-Lewin up front.

Alex Iwobi (£5.9m) should operate from the right-hand side in either scenario, while Rodriguez could play centrally or on the flank.

Newcastle’s formation will also be one to monitor, with the official team graphic suggesting Isaac Hayden (£4.7m) will be part of a back three.

The ex-Arsenal man could also operate in his defined midfield role as part of a 4-4-2 or 4-3-3.

In any case, Callum Wilson (£6.6m) will lead the Magpies line. Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.1m) is on the Newcastle bench.

Everton XI: Pickford; Digne, Keane, Mina, Coleman; Doucouré, Sigurdsson; Richarlison, James Rodriguez, Iwobi; Calvert-Lewin.

Newcastle United XI: Darlow; Lewis, Schar, Lascelles, Hayden, Manquillo; Fraser, Shelvey, Hendrick, Almiron; Wilson.
