Aguero, Arnautovic, King

The 2017-18 season nostalgia picks:

A number of players made their way into my squad before the game opened, last season’s returns fresh in mind..

Andrew Robertson’s end of season form was painful to observe as a Virgil van Dijk owner. At 6.0 he is ready to take up the Marcos Alonso mantle of most desirable defensive option in my opinion.

Mo Salah. Not out of fear. For the joy of FPL points.

With Danny Rose progressing to the World Cup Semi-Finals, Ben Davies was always going to be my next defensive target. The defender served many of us well at the beginning of last season, with double-digit potential and rotation over the opening fixtures less of a concern, he’s a must for me. I am conscious that I held onto Davies too long last season – this year I have earmarked Ben Mendy as my exit strategy, as and when.

Similarly, for Sergio Aguero, an early World Cup exit promoted him to the top of my summer watchlist, the anticipation of Brazil reaching the latter stages and rendering Gabriel Jesus a late starter seemed too good to be true. Aguero was a player I brought in ‘early’ last season at the moment everybody else switched from Morata to Firmino, GW17. I held him all the way through to GW32 so am familiar with the rotational fear that accompanies waiting for a City team sheet. I don’t know if he will be a long term pick, or if I’ll shift to Aubameyang after a few weeks (one of my preferred choices before the fixtures were released), but he’s nailed into my GW1 squad for sure.

Marko Arnautovic is another player I earmarked for inclusion at the end of last season. He’s just a fun player to own.

Kenedy is the final player in this group. A player I was keen on bringing into my squad last season, but for numerous reasons, never got round to, and watched on enviously as he returned a brace two or three gameweeks later. My squad structure includes two 5.0m midfielders and despite poor opening fixtures, he’s a player I’m keen to rotate in and out of my starting XI.

The desirables:

With Manchester City’s outrageous fixture run GWs 2-7, doubling up on attack seems bordering on essential. Having opted for Sergio Aguero, I am keen to leave a third slot open for manoeuvre after one or two weeks, once the returning KDB and co. are back in the mix. Riyad Mahrez is the player I’ve chosen. He’s a player that I’ve felt inclined to ignore over the past two season’s since his well earned price hike following the title winning season. But his FPL returns for Leicester last season, 16pts more than Sane make him almost irresistible in the City lineup. De Bruyne may well end up being the long term hold (or a double up partner) but for now, Mahrez IN!

Christian Eriksen is my third premium midfielder and it is the disarray at Spurs that draws me to him. With Kane potentially making a late return to the first team post-WC, I’m expecting the goal-thirsty Denmark version of Eriksen to step up to the mark.

My final desirable is Josh King. Early drafts included Zaha in this spot, and there are one or two 6.5 forwards I wouldn’t completely rule out – Wood, Mitrovic. King’s end of season form was mildly reminiscent to that of the previous season. Early sound bites from King about being unhappy played out of position last season lead me to believe he is about to recapture something of that form.

The uncertainties:

James Tomkins was a Free-Hit player I owned for Blank-Gameweek-35 last season. A modest 6-point return betrayed his involvement on the day, Livescore kept me informed of his numerous efforts on goal – so close to being a Free Hit hero! However, with Aaron Wan-Biassaka providing the role of 4.0 budget pick, I do wonder if doubling on Palace defence is a little much…

Cedric Soares was another early pick, a player that has always flattered to deceive in FPL. I am concerned about Mark Hughes ability to muster defensive resolve in his back line, not to mention a tummy bug denting his preseason return, so this 4.5 slot is very much up for grabs.

James McArthur was a non-pick last season thanks to the kindly priced Luka Milivojevic. However his goal scoring heroics did not go unnoticed. The arrival of Kouyate (and potentially RLC) could be a concern with the midfield options available to Hodgson fairly numerous. Helder Costa, Ruben Neves and Tom Cairney are all side steps I’m considering.

The Goal keeper pair is something I’ve toyed with a little. Pre-price releases, Dubravka at 4.5 was pencilled in as a potential set and forget, but with the early fixture run, a 5.0 valuation and the arrival and modest pricing of Portugese legend Rui Patricio at Wolves, my head has been well and truly turned!

Tapping in to Sean Dyche’s backline is something that I’ve been conscious of tinkering with since the game opened. With the defensive options receiving a token 5.0m valuation across the board, I see Joe Hart (assuming he hasn’t been brought in as cover for Lindegard!) as a reasonable budget route into the Burnley backline for the short to medium term – a spell that includes a very enticing opening run of fixtures.

Conclusion

    What would you do with this team for next weekend?

    Fabianski
    Shaw, mendy, Peltier
    Jota, richarlison, salah, erikson
    Aguero, Arnautovic, firmino

    Bench, foster, wan-bissaka, stephens, tomkins

    Or leave it and 2 free transfers next weekend?

    1. Zizou
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 days ago

      I think leave it and save transfer. Am thinking the same, see below.

    2. fish66

      bank that FT

    Almost a perfect start to ff this year. My only regret was a 6.45 change from bsilva and mane to sanchez and jota. Would have made 106..... Ah well. Wondering do I need to change anything or reassess after gw2
    Foster patricio

    1. PÍE

      No idea who Billing is (bench-fodder I asume), but I'd def stick, looks fine.

      1. Zizou
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 4 days ago

        Yeah bench fodder for Huddersfield. Yeah think I'll stick, only sorry I hadn't mane and bsilva going into gw2

        1. PÍE
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 4 days ago

          I think the Man City midfield is going to be tough to call this season, unless there are some injuries.
          KDB probably the most likely to play week-in week-out, but other than that who's gonna play the most regularly out of D Silva, B Silva, Mahrez, Sane, Sterling? That's not even taking into account whether they might play Jesus & Aguero some games.

          1. Zizou
            • 9 Years
            1 year, 4 days ago

            Yeah I agree, think sterling and kdb will get most minutes. I have sanchez as a place holder for either kdb/sterling/hazard so as annoyed as I am for not sticking to mane and bsilva I had a reason. Will keep sanchez this week and then change to one of the 3 mentioned.

  3. North_East_FF_Pro

    No need to make any changes? Only transfer that appeals is Jota to Neves....

    Mendy, VVD, AWB (Peltier, Bednarak)
    Salah, Mane, Jota, Richarlison, Fraser

    Aguero Arnie King

    Fabianski WB Stephens Peltier

    Hit the jackpot with my team over the weekend with 103 and WB on the bench, banking the FT this week so the main question is Salah vs Aguero for the armband?

    1. Hermanos FC
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 days ago

      I think Aguero...home advantage

    2. Hermanos FC
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 days ago

      And if he goes wild he can score a hat trick.... that's a bit scary isn't it?

    2. North_East_FF_Pro

      No offence but I really don't like that team. I'd use my wildcard if I were you otherwise you are going to get left behind.

    Foster (Fab)

    Robbo, Mendy, Daniels, (Tomkins, Wan-Biss)

    Jota, Salah, Mane, Richarlison (Stephens)

    Aguero, Zaha, Mirtro

    1.5 mil in bank, was wondering if should change Stephens or one of my defenders?

    Got two Palace defender atm and wondering if need to change one, Also with my 1.5 mil should keep Midfield/attack as is or a better option to change/bring in? Thanks

    1. Differential (c)
      • 3 Years

      I'd save, team looks alright. But damn, 1.5m ITB is lovely.

  12. Bendy Mendy

    Hi All,

    Looking for a quick RMT:

    Pickford (Fabianski)
    Mendy - Alexander Arnold - Cedric (Wan Biss) (Peltier)
    Salah - Richardson - Wilshire - Hazard - (Stephens)
    Mitrovic - Aguero - Firminio

    £0.5m ITB - Wondering if I should :

    A) Swap out Wilshire this week for another £5.0,
    B) Swap out Defender - AA or Cedric
    C) Swap out Hazard
    D) Hold Transfer

    Any thoughts?

    1. Differential (c)
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 days ago

      Tbf Wilshere was vs LIV. May get more joy vs BOU next week.
      Hold transfer.

    2. Son is Rising
      • 9 Years

      Hold, nice team

  13. G0lanb

    Fabianski
    Shaw - Peltier - Robertson
    Salah - Mane - Sanchez - Richarlison
    Aguero - King - Jimenez

    Bench: Begovic - Wan Bissaka - Bertrand - Stephens

    Would you save the free transfer for next week?
    I was thinking of replacing Sanchez for KDB / Bilva, allowing me to free up some $$ for future targets.

  14. EDEN THE MAN
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 days ago

    Thoughts on moves I should make with my team below?

    Patricio-Fabianksi
    Robertson-Mendy-Shaw-Kabasele-AWB
    Salah-Mané-Bilva-Richarlison-Masuaku
    Kun-Zaha-King

    Not happy with my decision to get Masuaku but should I save?

    Any stand out 4.5 mids?

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Differential (c)
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 days ago

      Lowest value playing Mids are at 5.0. At 4.5, you're really only looking for appearances.
      I'd say save.

      1. Son is Rising
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 3 days ago

        Save, playing 4.5 is enough

  15. Puyol Self Together
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 days ago

    Ederson - Hamer
    Robertson - A Smith - AWB - Bednarek - Peltier
    Salah - Sanchez - Bilva - Richarlison - Cairney
    Aguero - Zaha - King

    Have 1m ITB, so considering this before their prices rise and I can't next week:

    Sanchez + Bednarek > Mane + Mendy

    Worth it for a hit so early? I have Ederson and Salah already.

    1. Supersonic

        1 year, 3 days ago

        Neves and Richarlison would be the obvious replacements.

        My two closest rivals own both Jota and Richarlison and I find myself with just Jota.

        Richarlison more of a threat?

        1. cult
          • 4 Years

          Midfield would look better with Richarlison..

    Got 84 points at GW1 but made the horrible mistake to take Albrighton in the team and now looking for a replacement at £5.5m max.

    Pickford - Patricio

    AWB - Azpi - Tarchowski - Sakho - Robbo

    Salah - KDB - Neves - Eriksen - Albrighton

    Zaha - Firmino - Kamara

    Who should I get instead of Albrighton ? I was thinking about Helder Costa, Wilshere, Fraser, Jorginho or Fernandinho.

    Thanks

      70 is not rubbish, given that average was low-£50s

      i'd keep the team as it is. looks good.

          it's a long season with ups and downs - the sweet is never as sweet, without the sour.

          one thing i noticed - Fred looked out of place during game. you might want to keep an eye on him as he adjusts to english prem league. you could try and find an extra £0.5m and upgrade to James Maddison or Richarlison (if he's still performing)
