David Munday says Everton's tricky schedule means the Premier League's top scorer can be ditched

He's the Premier League's top scorer and the most-selected Fantasy Premier League player but is it time to sell Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.9m)?

On the latest episode of the FPL Show, expert David Munday says he is replacing the Everton striker with Leeds United's Patrick Bamford (£6.2m) in order to get ahead of his Fantasy rivals.

"At this stage of the season you can get ahead of the game a little bit," Munday explains. 

"I just don't really like Everton's fixtures as much as Leeds', and with Lucas Digne (£6.1m) not being in the team it removes that element of the ball going into the box, which he thrives on.

"It's all about what you do with your money. The price difference between Bamford and Calvert-Lewin, it's pretty big so you can put that to good use elsewhere."

Munday also cites Everton's EFL Cup quarter-final against Manchester United, which falls in between Gameweeks 14 and 15 on 23 December, as another reason to sell Calvert-Lewin.

"The other thing is Everton have got a cup game to think about over the festive period," he adds. "Is Calvert-Lewin maybe going to have some minutes managed?

"Some of the other strikers that are in the same price bracket have nicer fixtures and more rest over Christmas."

Remember the Gameweek 13 deadline is at 16:30 GMT on Tuesday 15 December.
