FPL team news: Sigurdsson back as a Fantasy option

The Scout says Everton midfielder who is strong at home is set to be recalled to the starting XI against a leaky Spurs defence

The Fantasy Premier League prospects of Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.5m) could be set for a revival in Everton’s home match with Tottenham Hotspur.

After starting the first eight Gameweeks, the Iceland international was dropped to the bench against West Ham United and Brighton & Hove Albion.

But an injury to winger Bernard (£6.5m) can allow Sigurdsson to return to the starting line-up to face Spurs on Sunday.

The playmaker could occupy the central-support role in Marco Silva’s 4-2-3-1 formation, with Alex Iwobi (£5.8m) moving to the left flank.

Top-four home creator

Despite his role as a substitute against the Hammers in Gameweek 9, Sigurdsson still came off the bench to score his side’s second goal in a 2-0 win.

The underlying numbers further highlight his impact at Goodison Park.

At home, his 16 chances created are a team-leading figure. Only three other players have bettered that total this season.

That creativity can help the hosts take advantage of Spurs' poor away form.

Mauricio Pochettino's men have conceded two or more goals in all five of their 2019/20 road trips.

Now down to 3.4 per cent ownership, that marks Sigurdsson out as intriguing midfield differential for FPL managers in Gameweek 11.
