FPL Gameweek 26 – head-to-head comparisons: Dominic Calvert-Lewin vs Gerard Deulofeu
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.1m) could be on the verge of a maiden England call-up but will want to improve his case in the coming fixtures. The Everton youngster is enjoying a great season and has earned the right to lead the line for the Toffees. His goal against Newcastle in Gameweek 24 saw him break into double figures for the season but he was unable to add to his tally last week against Watford, despite his side scoring three goals.
Gerard Deulofeu (£6.1m) has chipped in with two assists in his last two matches but needs to produce that level of consistency over a longer period. He has just four goals and five assists to his name so far this season but two of those goals and three of the assists have come since Gameweek 19. With Watford struggling in their last few fixtures, the Spaniard has an integral part to play if his side are to get back on track on their visit to Brighton but a home game against Crystal Palace gives Calvert-Lewin the edge. Everton have been strong at home of late and with Palace badly out of form, Calvert-Lewin is well-placed to take advantage although it could be a goal or bust with the Everton man yet to provide an assist so far this season.
Verdict: Dominic Calvert-Lewin
