FPL Gameweek 7 – head-to-head comparisons: Patrick Bamford vs Dominic Calvert-Lewin
Leeds forward Patrick Bamford (£5.9m) continues to thrive for Marcelo Bielsa's side in the Premier League and Gameweek 6 saw Bamford hit a wonder hat-trick, racking up 17 FPL points as the Whites clinically dispatched Aston Villa 0-3 away from home. It was not such a successful gameweek for Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) as the Everton frontman failed to score for the first time in a Premier League match this season as the Toffees fell to a 2-0 defeat over Southampton.
Whilst Bamford will look to build on his hat-trick against Villa in Gameweek 7 against Leicester at Elland Road, Calvert-Lewin travels to Newcastle, a ground he has fond memories of having scored both goals in a 1-2 win there last season. The Toffees forward also scored in the fixture at Goodison Park, so when you take into account his record against the Magpies along with his side's desire to bounce back following defeat, we're expecting a big response from Calvert-Lewin and a big return of FPL points in Gameweek 7.
Verdict: Dominic Calvert-Lewin
