Best Everton picks from 2021/22

Everton had a difficult season in the Premier League. However, their win in Gameweek 37 was enough to guarantee their Premier League survival for the 2022/23 season. We take a look at who the best FPL picks from Everton were this season.

Everton struggled for much of the 2021/22 season. They parted company with Rafa Benitez and hired Frank Lampard, who managed to successful retain their place in the Premier League. Everton assets were at times frustrating picks for FPL managers, however they also offered some great returns at different points during the season.

  • Richarlison – 125
  • Jordon Pickford – 116
  • Demarai Gray – 109
  • Michael Keane – 102
  • Anthony Gordon – 100

Best defensive numbers

Everton kept eight clean sheets this season. They conceded 66 goals, only four teams in the league conceded more.

Michael Keane was the only defender who registered all eight clean sheets. He was the top defender for aerial duals at Everton with 155. Keane was also the top defender for interceptions, clearances and blocks. His 20 goal attempts was also more than any other Everton defender.

Coleman was the top defender for chances created this season at Everton with 13.

These tallies mean an increased likelihood for bonus points if Everton keep clean sheets.


It was a tough season for choosing Everton players in FPL. Injuries to key players such as Calvert-Lewin meant that there were less options to choose from from the Toffee’s. Richarlison, Gordon and Townsend all registered three double digit hauls this season, a team leading number. At just £4.7m when the season ended Gordon was a great budget enabler for FPL managers. He is someone that alongside the likes of Richarlison and Calver-Lewin managers should key on their watchlist for 22/23.
