The Scout singles out players who can be key Fantasy Premier League options for managers over the busy festive period.

Richarlison (EVE) £6.9m | Gylfi Sigurdsson (EVE) £7.5m

The Everton pair have started the season strongly, both sitting among the top seven midfielders for FPL points.

Their immediate prospects are raised by three favourable home matches in the next four Gameweeks.

Everton's opponents GW13-21
13 CAR (H) 18  TOT (H)
14 LIV (A) 19  BUR (A)
15 NEW (H)  20  BHA (A)
16 WAT (H) 21  LEI (H)
17 MCI (A)    

Everton entertain Cardiff City, Newcastle United and Watford, strengthening the case to consider one, or even both, before the 14:00 GMT deadline on Saturday 24 November.

Brazilian popularity

Owned by 25.6 per cent, Richarlison is the cheaper, and more popular, of the two.

More importantly, the winger has benefited from a move up front. He has three goals and one assist in his five appearances as a forward.

However, Sigurdsson should not be overlooked for the winter period.

He is the sixth top-scoring midfielder on 61 points.

Set-piece advantage

The Icelander is on penalties for Everton and also has a share of corner-kicks.

And his total of 31 chances created is ranked fifth overall for the season.

Although Richarlison now looks the Toffees' go-to option, Sigurdsson has the form to reward those who double up on the Everton duo.
