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