GW12 team news: Richarlison doubts a worry

The Scout says most-bought midfielder should be kept even if unfit for Gameweek 12 Chelsea match

Managers of Richarlison (£6.9m) in Fantasy Premier League face an anxious wait ahead of his trip to Chelsea.

Over 154,000 of them have bought the Everton star for Gameweek 12, more than any FPL midfielder.

But Richarlison will have to be assessed for Sunday afternoon’s encounter after picking up a knock.

Forward gains

The Brazilian has thrived since being moved to centre-forward in Gameweek 8, producing three goals and an assist in four appearances.

That form indicates that his 26.6 per cent ownership should keep him in their squads and monitor his injury situation if he fails to feature this weekend.

Home run

Everton's very favourable run of home matches raises his potential further.

The Toffees welcome Cardiff City, Newcastle United and Watford to Goodison Park over Gameweeks 13-16.

And having delivered 15 points at home to Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend, a fit-again Richarlison could even be a captain contender against Cardiff in Gameweek 13.
