Aubameyang scores a brace off the bench again as Ozil stars for Arsenal

Arsenal recorded their seventh league win on the spin as they came back from a goal down to defeat Leicester City in the final match of Gameweek 9 on Monday evening.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was named among the Arsenal substitutes for the second league match running but as was the case at Fulham in Gameweek 8, the Gabonese striker came off the bench to score a brace as Arsenal stepped up a gear in the second half.

There was an evening of frustration for owners of Alexandre Lacazette and James Maddison, however, with both players going within a whisker of delivering an attacking return but ultimately ending up blanking.

Hector Bellerin, owned by over 10% of Fantasy Premier League managers, had a mixed night as he registered two assists and a bonus point but also put past his own goalkeeper to give the Foxes the lead.

We round up all the goals, assists, Fantasy talking points and manager quotes from Arsenal’s tenth straight win in all competitions – plus an update on Jamie Vardy, who gingerly made his way from the field late in the match.

Arsenal 3-1 Leicester City

  • Goals: Mesut Ozil (£8.3m), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.7m) x2 | Hector Bellerin (£5.4m) own-goal
  • Assists: Hector Bellerin x2, Mesut Ozil | Ben Chilwell (£5.0m)

Alexandre Lacazette (£9.7m) has made a habit of defying the underlying attacking statistics in recent weeks, but the opposite happened on Monday evening in north London.

Lacazette recorded more penalty box touches and attempts on goal than any other player at the Emirates, but it was not to be the French striker’s night as he blanked for the first time since Gameweek 2. Lacazette’s penalty box touch count was, in fact, the most that any FPL forward managed in this round of matches.

The nadir was a glorious opportunity that he wasted from three yards on 77 minutes, passing the ball back into Kasper Schmeichel‘s (£5.0m) arms when it looked easier to score.

Lacazette also spooned over from a low Alex Iwobi (£5.5m) cross and had an attempt blocked after a suicidal back pass from Nampalys Mendy (£4.5m).

Despite the blank, it was an encouraging evening for Lacazette’s owners in that the French forward was continually finding himself in goal-scoring positions and would on another night perhaps have had two or three goals.

James Maddison‘s (£7.0m) ever-growing number of Fantasy owners experienced a similarly vexing evening, with the Leicester midfielder blanking for the second week in a row but coming within inches of leaving the Emirates with two assists.

Both of the “big chances” that Maddison created were predictably from set-pieces: Harry Maguire (£5.5m) drawing a fine low save from Bernd Leno (£4.8m) in the first half before Wilfred Ndidi (£4.9m) nodded against the crossbar after the break.

A slight irritation for Maddison’s owners is that the summer signing from Norwich City once again failed to complete 90 minutes for the eighth time in nine league matches.

Leicester were the better of the two teams for much of the first half, with Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.9m) going close early on with a shot that deflected off Rob Holding‘s (£4.4m) back before the Foxes were denied a penalty when the Arsenal centre-back handled the ball.

Ben Chilwell (£5.0m), who going into this match had created as many chances as Benjamin Mendy (£6.3m) this season but without any reward, deservedly put his side in front on the half hour when his cross was deflected by Hector Bellerin (£5.4m) past the helpless Leno.

Bellerin made amends just before half-time by crossing for Mesut Ozil (£8.3m) to equalise, with that goal sparking a second-half revival from the hitherto pedestrian Gunners.

Ozil turned in a superb performance in the second 45 minutes, assisting Arsenal’s third goal and playing a key part in his side’s second.

The ex-Germany international has now delivered three double-digit hauls in his last four appearances and is another Arsenal player who is making a mockery of those of us who place our faith in underlying statistics: all three of Ozil’s shots from Gameweek 5 onwards have resulted in goals.

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang (£10.7m) was the beneficiary of Ozil’s vision tonight. Named only as a substitute for the second league match in a row, Aubameyang came off the bench on the hour and scored twice within the next five minutes.

Both of the former Borussia Dortmund striker’s goals were simple tap-ins, the first from a Bellerin cross after the Spanish right-back had been set free by Ozil, and the second from the German schemer himself following a brilliant flowing Arsenal move.

It is difficult to know how to view Aubameyang as a Fantasy asset: seemingly uncertain of a starting berth but capable of doing damage off the bench, and having registered only six shots in the last four Gameweeks but scoring from five of them.

Unai Emery was asked if Arsenal’s brilliant third goal defined his philosophy:

It’s one way. For example, we watched the Watford game this morning and we repeated the second goal in this match. Starting with Leno, long ball which we won with the head with Danny (Welbeck) in the second action and then we are doing a speed attacking and also scoring.

This is another way. We can do a goal starting with all the passes and arriving in the box with these chances to score is very good because we can do one long pass.

Aaron Ramsey (£7.4m) didn’t enjoy the same good fortune as Aubameyang off the bench as he delivered a one-pointer for his 2.5% of FPL owners, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan (£6.9m) and Iwobi keeping their places in the starting XI either side of Lacazette.

Stephan Lichtsteiner (£4.6m) made his first Premier League start at left-back, with Emery revealing afterwards that Nacho Monreal (£5.5m) and Sead Kolasinac (£4.9m) were not risked due to minor injury problems:

Yesterday was a very bad day for our injuries because we lost two in the same position like Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal. They were in training with a small problem, but we did the group for today with both but this morning the news is they are not good to play.

We had another player to help us like Lichtsteiner today and Xhaka – he played 30 minutes at left-back – but for us, for our balance it’s better Nacho or Sead are OK to play in this position and we are going to look at how they are for the next matches, but I hope they can play on Thursday or shortly afterwards.

Sokratis (£5.2m) also missed out, with Emery giving this update on the Greek centre-back:

Sokratis, he trained yesterday. I think he can stay for Thursday and we are going to look because now with a lot of matches in a few days it’s important the players get the good preparation.

Leicester had their brief own injury concern during the game, with Jamie Vardy (£9.0m) – who failed to have a single shot all night – heading straight down the tunnel as the match drew to a close.

Claude Puel alleviated any fitness worries, however, saying Vardy’s withdrawal was due to illness:

Jamie was ill and he could not come back in the game and we finished with 10 men. You need to speak with him but I think he felt this in the second half. He seems ok.

Puel also discussed his deployment of a 5-2-3 system (off the ball), which saw Daniel Amartey (£4.4m) move to centre-half, Ricardo Pereira (£5.1m) patrol the opposite flank to Chilwell, and Maddison join Vardy and Iheanacho in a three-man press from the front:

We tried another system. They played with desire, with quality, good concentration and we put this team under pressure. I think they were surprised with our system and we had a lot of chances and quality with our play on the ground.

It’s a shame we didn’t have success in making the difference more in the first half. We conceded free-kicks before half-time on the break. It’s a shame.

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Bellerin, Mustafi, Holding, Lichtsteiner (Aubameyang 61′); Torreira, Xhaka; Mkhitaryan (Guendouzi 61′), Ozil (Ramsey 80′), Iwobi; Lacazette.

Leicester City XI (5-2-3): Schmeichel; Chilwell, Amartey, Maguire, Evans, Pereira (Ghezzal 69′); Ndidi, Mendy; Maddison (Okazaki 75′), Iheanacho (Albrighton 61′), Vardy.

    2 FTs. 1.6m in the bank. What to do with this team. For me there doesn't seem to be any obvious move.

    Alisson

    Alonso, Robertson, Laporte, Bennett

    Hazard, David Silva, Mané

    Mitrovic, Agüero, Wilson

    Bench: Patricio, Wan-Bissaka, Højbjerg, Billing

    1. wildnothing
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Maybe upgrade Bennett to Doherty.

    2. Smurf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Bennett to Doherty. Given Wolves have tougher firxtures coming up I’d rather get Doherty who at least would offer some attacking threat.

      1. Demel
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        This is true.

    3. Rocky.007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Bennet to Doherty or/and Laporte to Mendy

    4. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Bennett upgrade could be good but Silva to Kdb would be a possibility. Arnie the following week maybe too.

    5. BOATIES FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 1 day ago

      There's no need to have Patricio with Allison. Could free up half a million there

      1. CROCosta
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 1 day ago

        exactly this, pick one + 4.0, and use excess funds to upgrade 4th mid (billing to pererya/richarlison/shurrle/seri)

    6. b82rz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Hojbjerg to Murphy, Bennett to Doherty or Balbuena or Duffy, billing to Kennedy

      1. b82rz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 1 day ago

        All suggestions but would give you much stronger bench

  2. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 1 day ago

    Which GK to bring in?

    A) Ryan
    B) Fabianski

    1. Eric Banternaaa
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Ryan

    2. Rocky.007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Fabianski for long term, Ryan for short term imo.

    3. Evla5000
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Go with the keeper that gives you that warm feeling in your stomach

    4. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      They will end up with similar returns. Houghton more defensive than Pellers, but from memory Fabs has the stats (might be last year).

    5. Jøssy ⭐
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      B

  3. Eric Banternaaa
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 1 day ago

    Currently sitting in top 20k. Fancy a mix up, thoughts?

    Hart / Ptricio
    Robertson / Laporte / Bennett / Alonso / WanB
    Salah / Mane / Walcott / Fraser / Billing
    Arnie / Aguero / Jiminez

    Think of pushing the big red button. WILDCARD.

    2FT 0.2ITB

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Can't see too many changes needed. Most issues you have (Walcott) can be sorted within 2FT

      1. Eric Banternaaa
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        Not too many players in that price bracket though. Pereya?

        1. Eric Banternaaa
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 1 day ago

          Knockaert?

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            11 months, 1 day ago

            Pererya or Groß could be worth it

          2. Demel
            • 8 Years
            11 months, 1 day ago

            He was dropped.

    2. Rocky.007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Hazard.

      1. Eric Banternaaa
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        Damn, I already have Hazard. Mane > Hazard.

        1. Rocky.007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          11 months, 1 day ago

          Then it looks good to go mate. Walcott to someone?
          Or may be Jimenez to cheap fwd and Bennet to Doherty?

    3. Slitherene
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 1 day ago

      If you fancy a mix up, try Hazard + KdB + Luiz for Salah, Walcott and Alonso.

      1. Eric Banternaaa
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        See comments above. I have Hazard already instead of Mane.

  4. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 1 day ago

    Anyone actually considering a Cardiff option as an enabler? Or should we just put the last result down to Fulham?

    I thought about Reid at 5.2 but noticed his limited minutes lately.

    1. wildnothing
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      I brought in Murphy on my wc and I love him as a cheap option that can actually get returns. Ha takes a lot of shots and is their main threat it seems.

      1. wildnothing
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        Two goals in his last three and priced at 4.8.

        1. altan8797
          • 2 Years
          11 months, 1 day ago

          not for a hit 🙂

          1. wildnothing
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            11 months, 1 day ago

            No. Why?

    2. Demel
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Ward is currently my 5th midfielder. It would be nice if he returned to the starting XI but he is likely to be replaced in the next few weeks.

  5. altan8797
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 1 day ago

    hi all,

    current team

    Hart Boruc
    Alonso TAA AWB Yedlin Suttner
    Sterling Hazard Maddison Knockaert Hoijberg
    Vardy Agüero King

    1FT 3.4 ITB
    A. King > Firmino
    B. King > Arnie

    1. Eric Banternaaa
      • 5 Years

      Firmino this GW, then Firmino > Arnie next?

      1. altan8797
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        could do that actually

    2. Rocky.007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Fancy getting Salah?
      B

    3. Sizo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Play King this week. B next week.

    4. bbaggins79
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Taa > Robbie

  6. FPL Virgin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 1 day ago

    How long until Maddison is benched?

    "A slight irritation for Maddison’s owners is that the summer signing from Norwich City once again failed to complete 90 minutes for the eighth time in nine league matches."

    1. Demel
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      He is the creative hub of the team. He will be subbed but I don't see him being benched.

      1. Andy Ftw
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        Agreed

  7. lilmessipran
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 1 day ago

    If you had to get rid of one of Maddison/richarlison to bring in Salah , who would it be?

    1. FPL Virgin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Tough one.

      Maddison has better fixtures but Richarlison could well be moved back to the left with Tosun scoring.

    2. Rocky.007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Based on form and fixtures, I would say Richarlison but its close.

    3. Typo
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Contemplating the same. Think Richarlison is the one I would ship. His fixtures turn a bit. Bit of rollercoaster fixtures really.

    4. Martial FC
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Richarlison

      1. Martial FC
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        I did the same transfer. Rich’s fixtures aren’t good enough

  8. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 1 day ago

    Have this horribly structured mess.

    Fabianski
    Doherty - Mendy - Alonso - Robertson - Ricardo Pereira
    Salah - Hazard - Richarlison
    Mitrovic - Aguero
    Button - Jimenez - Kenedy - Obiang (0.4itb, 1ft)

    A. Any advice on long term repairs? I know I have myself to blame for stupidity or boldness with the heavy defence!
    B. Save FT or Rich to Pereya/Maddison?
    C. Benching order.

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Lool nothing wrong with that at all

    2. Demel
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      I am struggling to see what is wrong with your squad.

      1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        It's a structure issue. I thought I was being clever, but it makes transfers tricky!

        1. Demel
          • 8 Years
          11 months, 1 day ago

          I still don't see the issue. Downgrade Perreria to AWB and upgrade Kennedy and your team structure looks the same as the rest of teams with decent structure.

    3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Once you have RAM-Kun-Salah-Haz the rest isn’t super important. Keep those 6 & don’t take hits with the other 5 starters & arrows will be generally green

      1. Demel
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        I disagree with that a little. Those 6 are crucial to me. It is the other players that decide how your gameweek goes.

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 1 day ago

          In an individual GW absolutely, but long term, assuming you don’t pick terrible players, most combos within those 5 other slots will score quite similarly imo - e.g Richarlison vs Maddison, Ings vs Jiminez, Wilson vs King, Mitro vs Arnie etc etc.

          There’ll always be swings in individual GW’s but long term they’ll be quite close I reckon. Where you could get caught is hokey cokey’ing & taking hits to chase points between them i think.

          1. Demel
            • 8 Years
            11 months, 1 day ago

            That is a fair reply.

    4. Sizo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Probably just save the transfer this week.

    5. Slitherene
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Alonso to Luiz, to enable Jimenez to Arnautovic move.
      And move Doherty to the first sub.

  9. Demel
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 1 day ago

    Tell me three things you are proud of this season and one thing that you regret.

    Proud:
    1) No red arrows yet this season
    2) Picking up Hazard in GW2
    3) Ignoring the numerous failed midfield bandwagons

    Regret:
    1) Not going with my gut and captaining Kun when he bagged a hat trick.

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Proud:
      1) Kept faith in Salah and Kun
      2) Brought Haz in early
      Regrets:
      1) Choosing Schmeical as my gk

    2. Delhidynamo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Proud

      1) Aguero hat trick captaincy

      2) Going with Richarlison from the start

      Regret

      1) Losing Auba after Cardiff

      2) not captaining Hazard enough

      3) Ignoring Liverpool defence ( and attack)

    3. Rocky.007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Proud:
      1) Captained Aguero when he scored the hatty
      2) Started my proper debut season in fpl brilliantly with OR under 30k after first 4 GWs

      Regret:
      1) Took unnecessary hits and transfers and managed to get my OR down to 500,000 in next 5 GWs

    4. ItOnlyTook9Years
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Nice one on no red, although probably means you had a poor first week 😉

      My regret is going for Kane 3 weeks ago instead of getting in Hazard like I should have.

      I'm not proud of anything particular, hoping to build on a decent start

      1. Demel
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        No Mane or Rich in week 1 killed my first week. So you aren't far away from the mark. 🙂

    5. wildnothing
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Proud:

      1) Having AWB, Fraser and Doherty from the very start.
      2) Captain Agüero when he scored hattrick.
      3) My current OR 359.

      Regret:
      An unneccessary -8 hit that didn't pay off.

    6. Jafalad
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Only one or two red arrows
      Only 10 transfers
      Patience being showed. Waiting for players to come good and it is paying off.

      Regret: Not getting certain players and trusting my gut e.g. Hazard, Mendy, Trippier.

  10. Tsparkes10
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 1 day ago

    Crazy how i was red arrowed in OR ln went from 3622 to 4800. But after Schurlle coming off my bench ive now jumped up to 2678 🙂

    1. Demel

    Any news/views on Mane? Will he be GTG this weekend?

    Contemplating: Richarlison, Kane -> Mane, Arnie

    Dont have Salah.

  14. Somnus

    A) Richarlison & Kane
    B) Salah & Arnie

    1. kelvint93

      B

    2. Martial FC
      • 7 Years

      Find someonebody els then Fraser imo

      1. Martial FC
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        Good enabler. Especially if he’s had him at 5.5 then it’s best to keep imo

        1. Tshelby
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 1 day ago

          Can't see him doing much anymore would prefer a 4th defender

  16. KUNingas

    What to do with 2 FTs? Ditch Kane and Zaha? 0.6 ITB

    Patricio, Hamer
    Alonso, Robertson, Mendy, AWB, Peltier
    Hazard, Mane, Richarlison, Maddison, Fraser
    Kane, Zaha, Ings

    1. Typo
      • 6 Years

      Kane and Zaha to Lacca and Arnie maybe?

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Need a city attacker imo. Maybe Mane and Zaha to Firminho and City mid

    3. Martial FC
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Kane > Aguero

      Zaha > Arnie

    Would you remove: Maddison, Richarlison or Fraser this week for Mane?

    1. Goat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No

    2. mrceez

      No

    3. Martial FC
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      I’d be tempted to do Rich > Mane. Only if he’s confirmed fit

    Hi guys i got 34 points this week -.-. What i have to do with this team to back ? Hennessey /Hammer TAA/Alonso/Tripier/Shaw/WB Mane/Hazard/Richarlison/Fraser Vardy/Aguero/Wilson I have 1.5 M atb , thinking about get Ryan+Mendy for Hennessy +Tripier(-4)

    1. AzzaroMax99
      • 2 Years

      TAA+Trippier to Robertson+Mendy?

    First time on this app as have originally played Sky FF... currently top of my 40 ml and OR of 2678 :). Hopefully keep it up

    1. Goat

      Ok

  20. Do I Not Like Orange
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 1 day ago

    Would you look to ship Fraser after this GW? Has a bad run of fixtures on the ticker but MUN & ARS at home who are both poor defensively as well as Newcastle who are just poor.

    1. wildnothing
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      I have replaced him already.

    2. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      I might just don't know for whom

  21. scubasmithy

    Replaced him last week

    Ideas?

    Hennessey, Hamer

      Henn to Fab/ryan and save the other

      1. Tshelby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah might do that!
        Thanks

    2. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years

      Yes. Gk transfer or get mendy for Tripp.

      1. Tshelby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        0.2 short for the Tripp to Mendy move. Might do that next week if I downgrade Fraser

    3. olidooley
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Mendy time

  23. wildnothing
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 1 day ago

    What would you do? 1ft 0.4 itb. Planning to do Mitro to Arnie in a few weeks.

    Alisson 4.0
    Doherty TAA Balbuena Mendy AWB
    Kenedy Hazard Salah Sterling Murphy
    Agüero Mitrovic Jimenez

    1. AzzaroMax99
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Why not this week? Arnie's fixtures are getting better.

  24. AzzaroMax99
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 1 day ago

    I have 2 ft. If no other concerns, would you do this: Pereira+Richarlison -> Mendy+Kenedy ?

    My team now:

    GKP: Foster (Patrício)
    DEF: Alonso, Doherty, Robertson (Wan-Bissaka) (Pereira)
    MID: Maddison, Mané, Hazard (C), Richarlison (Højbjerg)
    FWD: Wilson, Lacazette, Agüero (V)

  25. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 1 day ago

    2 quickies...

    A. What position is Ricardo Pereira playing at the moment? I assume he's further forward than RB?

    B. Is Richarlison to Maddison worthwhile or a waste of the free transfer this week?

    Fab-Balbuena-Wan Bis-Ward

    2FT 1.9 ITB

    Struggling for transfer ideas. ANy suggestions appreciated.

    a) Richarlison > Preyeya
    b) Ward > Kayal/Murphy
    c) ?

    1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      I like both A and B actually. Is the money for anything planned?

    2. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      What about Ward > Pereyra and bench Rich?

    3. Old Gregg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 1 day ago

      Yes Arnie next week. Would've probably done it this week if it wasn't for ingswilson fixture

      1. Old Gregg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 1 day ago

        Thanks. Good move but then I couldn't get Arnie, unless i downgrade elsewhere

  27. mike09

    Got 3.7 ITB and 2 FT but not sure what to prioritize.
    Would really appreciate some thoughts and ideas.

    Patricio
    Alonso - Robbo - Mendy
    Mane - Hazard - Richa - Maddison
    Aguero - Wilson - Ings

    Martinez - Knockaert - Bennett - AWB

    a) Mane, Knockaert > Salah, Kenedy (then Wilson > Arnie before GW 11)
    b) Knockaert > 8.4 (then Wilson > Arnie before GW 11)
    c) Something else.

    Morning All.
    Used WC and got first sub 50 pt game of the season finishing on 45 pts. Typical.
    Sterling/TAA fails but Mendy in for Alonso success and surprisingly ended up with a green arrow from 11.7k to 10.4k OR.

    Fabianski Patricio
    Mendy Robbo TAA Doherty AWB
    Hazard Sterling MAddison Richarlison Hojbjerg
    Aguero Mitrovic Jimenez

    Deliberately left 2m ITB for Sterling to Salah this week (I know I should've just went Salah on WC).

    No reason not to do it is there? Will wait until CL games have finished to pull the trigger.

  29. Gravless are for Kinnear

    Why is there talk of shipping Maddison. Prime fixtures and he’s the creative hub
