FPL Show: Richarlison move gives Bernard benefit

20 Oct 2018

Former champion says Bernard and Sigurdsson are exciting Fantasy options following Brazilian's switch up front

Everton fan and 2016/17 Fantasy Premier League champion Ben Crabtree is remaining loyal to his policy of not picking Liverpool players, so it comes as a welcome boost that the club he supports are offering plenty of sources for FPL points.

And it is the Blues' attacking players who excite Crabtree the most.

The move up front for Richarlison (£6.8m) at Leicester City in Gameweek 8 was not only rewarded with a goal but it offers the prospect of a Fantasy midfielder leading the attack for an extended period.

It also led to a full Premier League debut and an assist for Bernard (£5.9m), as well as a stunning winner by Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.4m) at King Power Stadium, and Crabtree says manager Marco Silva's attacking line-up can get the best out of all three players.

"He [Silva] does like attacking players. It also gives the benefit of having Bernard in the team, so we have more creativity as well," Crabtree says in the latest FPL Show.

"So with Richarlison being out of position, Sigurdsson and Bernard behind him, it looks good for him.

"One game up front so far; scored the goal. Looking at the fixtures, if he can keep playing up front it does look like there are going to be more goals for him."
