FPL Show: Tough fixtures no problem for Richarlison

Former Fantasy champion Ben Crabtree backs Everton midfielder to justify being the game's most in-demand midfielder

With 13 points in the opening Gameweek 26 fixture, Richarlison (£8.1m) is the fourth highest-scoring midfielder in Fantasy Premier League.

Only Mohamed Salah (£12.8m), Kevin De Bruyne (£10.8m) and Sadio Mane (£12.2m) have outscored him this season and FPL managers are looking to take advantage of his and Everton's form.

Richarlison is the most transferred-in player ahead of Gameweek 27 and, even though he has tough upcoming matches, 2016/17 Fantasy champion Ben Crabtree says the winger is becoming fixture-proof.

"I did have him up until his injury a couple of weeks ago and then I got rid and now I'm disappointed that I did," says Crabtree on the latest FPL Show.

"[Everton] do have some difficult fixtures coming up but looking at the next three for example, they've both only kept clean sheets in five games this season, so you kind of fancy Everton to score.

"If they do, it's Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.1m) and Richarlison where they're coming from."
