Dugout Discussion – Man United vs West Ham

After Spurs breezed past Newcastle at St James’ Park, Manchester United entertain West Ham United in the final match of Gameweek 1.

The Red Devils’ summer signing Romelu Lukaku is heavily backed for this one, having scored in nine of his last 10 appearances against the Hammers in all competitions for Everton.

The most captained player (28%) in the Gameweek, he was also number one contender in our Captain Poll, earning 38% of the votes.

While Harry Kane proved a bitter disappointment with a one-point return against the Magpies, Lukaku’s response will be eagerly anticipated after a host of premium strikers hit the net over the last two days.

With the likes of Alexandre Lacazette, Sergio Aguero, Alvaro Morata, Roberto Firmino and Jamie Vardy all impressing, there’s no shortage of in-form big-hitters for out three-man frontlines right now.

Three goals and as many assists over pre-season suggests that Henrikh Mkhitaryan could stake a claim for midfield consideration, though the Armenian has been mainly overlooked – he’s owned by 7% to team-mate Paul Pogba’s 21%.

For the Hammers, a big display from former United man Javier Hernandez could have an impact on the overall standings –sitting in 21% of squads, he’s the fourth most popular forward in the game.

    I've seen some shocking bandwagons in my time, but Xhaka tops most of them.

    What do you think they're smoking over there at the Emirates?

      So it's Arsenal's fault hes a FPL bandwagon? Indeed.

        Missed that, can't see where he says it's Arsenal's fault for the bandwagon 😆

        Loving the formation of the Ramsey bandwagon too, now if he were a starter I could see the attraction but right here, right now I need people more nailed than Zheysus about 3,000 years ago lol

    I really liked the way Jesus played, he looked hungry and city created a load of chances, my front line: Kane - Mounie - Lukaku...who replaces him? I'm not planing to do it now but I probably will in few weeks

    Anyone know what happened to Iwobi this week?

    How nailed are Blind and Jones?

    Best laid plans huh?
    I'm sticking with this unless Fab loses value - then to who? Hearing Zaha may be out?

    Willian seems better than Ramsey, right?

    Foster
    Alonso Bertrand Danilo
    Salah Alli Fabregas Carroll
    Lukaku Jesus Firmino

    Thanks for help.

    1. Up Your Gills

      Have TAA to cover Danilo if he doesnt play.

      Trying to work out Willian vs. Ramsey. Ramsey a great fantasy prospect on his day. Never warmed to Willian for some reason, but without Haz and Pedro surely he's nailed.

      If Ramsey was a sure starter, think i'd go for him

    3. Big_Bear

      I thinking of Rambo over Willian. He more nailed long term IMO

      1. Up Your Gills

        2 months, 11 days ago

        And better fixture, and also the talk of the 3-4-3 allowing him to go forward.... Let's hope Fab doesnt lose £ for a few days at least.

    Assuming Zaha & Gabbi need to go:

    a) JWP & Firminho

    b) Mkhitaryan & 6m (Vokes / Mounie?)

    1. Turbolag
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Why does Gabbi need to go? He was getting tons of chances and everyone on Southampton couldn't finish.

    Danilo owners, what now?

    1. Dare2Zlatan

      1 more week, then will have to be removed

    Worst bandwagon player this weekend?

    Xhaka and David Luiz for me 🙂

    1. Turbolag
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Agree on Xhaka

      Is Luiz really a bandwagon? He was already the highest owned defender.

    2. G-Whizz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Xhaka yes, Luiz no 🙂
      Even seen a Ramsey bandwagon beginning to form too

  11. Ode
    2 months, 11 days ago

    PvA ----> Mounie -4 worth it?

  12. Jòse
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Lindelof -> Cedric and Willian -> Pogba worth it for a hit?

    1. Turbolag
      2 months, 11 days ago

      No. No hits unless you have multiple non-starters.

  13. Podolskistan
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Wildcard team

    Ederson Elliot
    Bellerin Ake Bertrand Hegazi Zanka
    Zaha Eriksen Salah Redmond Carrol
    Vardy Lukaku Firminio

    Zero in bank, GTG? any suggestions , specially about Ballerin & Redmond?

    1. TimothyJS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Don't like Ederson, Bellerin, Zaha & Redmond. No Kane will come back to haunt you IMO, especially if you insist on using the WC now.

      1. Podolskistan
        2 months, 11 days ago

        options please

    2. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      wildcard already! You must have got a bad team, you shouldn't be wildcarding for weeks yet.

    what is everyone doing with zaha?

    1. Ode
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Keep him unless he's injured

  15. Tinmen
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Is Ramsey looking a good option folks?

  16. gmando2011
    2 months, 11 days ago

    who had the best defence, brighton, hudersfield or newcastle?

    best £4.5m defender from those 3?

    1. Best_07
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Huddersfield for the fixtures.
      Brighton and Newcastle seem pretty strong defensively but Newcastle too much injuries right now.

  17. Aston-villain

    So much kneejerking and many jerks (or jerking lol), so many Wildcarding and looking back in bitterness over early decisions... So many bandwagons forming too... Xhaka, Ramsey, Mounie et al
    True, injuries might play their part in all that tinkering and movement of players, but also does strength and belief in the players you spent so much time looking into..

    You can't win anything in the first week, but Wildcarding this early, may be the move that loses you more than you think 😆
