    I'd be hopeful of returns for Vardy but not enough to captain. » Read

    I think it can. Looks a good alternative option. Good underlying stats plus Stoke have conceded more than any other side. those two facts alone should collide into a points explosion. » Read

    Indeed - no one is safe. » Read

    David Silva fact of the day - Silva covers far more of the pitch and has a far greater assist potential away from home. #FPL pts average Home - 5.2 Away 7 This is why I'm definitely keeping for WBA this weekend. Will he start? Who knows but so far he and Otamendi are the most nailed - so if anyone is close to a favourite its these two. » Read

    Good point. So a drubbing could still be on the cards for the Terriers. » Read

    What do you make of a similar situation between Arsenal and Swansea - another attacking team at home - against a team that concedes few goals but stacks of shots? » Read

    Was Gameweek 9 a victory for underlying statistics? Kane’s haul at home to Liverpool came on the back of impressive shots data from the Spurs striker at Wembley, where he had so far failed to score in the league. Was his 16 pt haul proof that we can trust underlying statistics? In addition, Burnley went to the Etihad having conceded very few goals on the road but posting diabolical shots conceded figures. Were City’s three goals against them further indication that underlying stats can be trusted? And what can we learn from that ahead of Gameweek 10. Swansea go to Arsenal having shipping just one goal – but like Burnley have allowed home sides a huge amount of chances. Could Sanchez or Lacazette be the best captaincy shout? And as for Liverpool – the consensus is to consider captaining one of their attackers against Huddersfield – but with the Terriers giving home sides few chances are we right to be so optimistic that Jurgen Klopp’s troops will score a hatful? » Read

    Was thinking similar. Suddenly there's lots of mids I want - including cheaper ones and not many strikers and not many premium defenders. I've currently got a 4-3-3 formation but am strong considering a hit to downgrade Davies and move some of his funds into give me Richarlison in for magic bean loftus cheek, alongside Silva, Sterling and one of Eriksen or Salah. I'm steering clear of Sanchez and Hazard for now as want to wait and see how they do - they are captaincy material and currently not happy captaining either. » Read

    For good or bad I think that is probably one of the most memorable single matches in FPL history. » Read

    Cheers. Yep, that run last year was unbelievable. Literally everything that could go wrong went wrong for an entire month. » Read

  12. Captain Poll - Gameweek 10 19 hours, 49 mins ago

    It's the 'taking captaincy off Kane' that is basically to be filed under 'chinny reckon/itchy beard'. Probably true, but impossible to prove. Lots say they almost did this and that. In the end that is simply a 'captained Jesus' » Read

    Rough - Captain Sterling benched, Davies benched, Jesus benched. 22 pts by the end of Saturday. Smooth - Vice captain Harry Kane to the rescue! Green arrow and into the top 100K for the first time this season. Second ever jammiest vice captain haul - the first being Lampard's incredible 25 pts following Captain Drogba being benched in Chelsea's 7-1 rout of Villa. » Read

    Thanks for this. Look forward to seeing any forthcoming defensive data so we can match them up. Hopefully for those backing City this GWK, the Baggies also share defensive traits with Burnley. » Read
