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.

    Need a Moura replacement. Have up to £8.5m, and narrowed it down to these options...

    a) Ozil
    b) Martial
    c) Maddison
    d) David Silva

    Thoughts?

    1. Dave Dreamer

      c) Nailed on, good fixtures.

      I think they are all good picks. C short term and D long term for me

    3. nisag17
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      I wouldn't get any of them to be honest. I would just change formation. Get an extra premium defender maybe.

  2. Dave Dreamer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 27 days ago

    Do we think Leno is the nailed on Arsenal keeper for the rest of the year?

    1. Fantasizer
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      why would u want a arsenal goallie anyway?

      1. Dave Dreamer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 27 days ago

        4.8 could rotate with Fabianski in my team.

        1. nisag17
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          10 months, 27 days ago

          Wow. GK rotation is in itself not a very good idea. Doing it with an Arsenal GK who isn't nailed is even worse. You are spending 9.3 on GK combo. I think might as well spend at extra .3 and go with Allison Hamer.

          1. Dave Dreamer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            10 months, 27 days ago

            Yeah should have been clearer. Would then have dropped Fab > Hammer when Arsenals fixtures improve.

        2. Geoff

          • 6 Years
          10 months, 27 days ago

          Haven't checked out the rotation but I'd probably say wait until the fixtures turn good again for Arsenal

    2. BRUCE THE MOOSE (F.K.A RAFA…
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      No idea. He looked good last night from what I seen of the game

  3. BRUCE THE MOOSE (F.K.A RAFA…
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    Kane+Cairney >> Firmino+Maddison for a hit??

    Patricio
    Bennett • Alonso • Robertson
    Salah(C) • Hazard • Richarlison • Kenedy
    Kane • Mitro • Arnie
    (Hamer • AWB • Tomkins • Cairney*)

    1. Messiah Hazard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Not for a hit

      1. BRUCE THE MOOSE (F.K.A RAFA…
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        Any moves you’d recommend?

    2. nisag17
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Anything ITB?

      1. BRUCE THE MOOSE (F.K.A RAFA…
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        Just 0.1

    3. kuzser
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Same players to Aguero and Pereira? Watford have 3 juicy fixtures

      1. BRUCE THE MOOSE (F.K.A RAFA…
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        Really want Maddison over the next 6 though

        1. kuzser
          • 2 Years
          10 months, 27 days ago

          Then do it

  4. Waylander
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    Ok, it’s time for Henessey to go. Who do you like as a 4.5 set and forget keeper until January, lads?

    A) Fabianski
    B) Ryan

    Cheers.

    1. Fantasizer
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      ryan.. the man

    2. BRUCE THE MOOSE (F.K.A RAFA…
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      B looked great against us Sat. And they have a nice run, I’d go with that

    3. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      I'm going with Fabianski I think those fixtures look amazing until GW 21 or something

    4. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Am going with Ryan - think he's a BPS magnet when Brighton keep a CS much like Pope was last year for Burnley

    5. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      I’m have exactly the same dilemma and same keepers, edging towards Ryan.. Not sure I want to take hit yet, so may have to keep Hennessey till GW11 after Ars

    6. DMP
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Im going for Ryan

    7. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      I think Fabianski is a better set and forget simply because his points hauls are unpredictable. Ryan seems a great steady option though, and with WH having some 4.3 defenders, they can be covered another way potentially.

      1. FPL Pillars
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        same can be said for brighton

    8. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Easy to chase last weeks points and for Ryan but he's been lucky to get two CS in a row IMO. Fab been unlucky not to get more CS so taking this into account i am going for Fab.

    9. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      both the best options that that price though

    10. dvdguy
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Fab, Ryan will be away for at least 3 weeks in Jan

  5. Irbox ⚽
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    Here’s a rough on for ya.. bloke in my ML scored 19 points with what on paper is a very solid team. Dropped from 50k to 170k.. ouch!

    Hennessy
    Alonso TAA Doherty
    Hazard Mane Richarlison Maddison Fraser
    Lacazette Kane

    Hamer Bennett AWB Kamara

    1. nisag17
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      He does have Kane though. So not entirely blameless 🙂

    2. Internal Error
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      The only Liverpool pick was a big doubt, No City players either. Not that surprising

    3. Zambian FPL Addict
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 27 days ago

      nothing compared to me, I sold Awb, Kane Hart for Jonny, Firminho and Dubravka for -8 not to mention i had Ramsey in my 11, and all I got was 3 points to rub it i sold Aubameyang for Kane before Fulham. top 100k to mid 300k in 2 weeks.

    4. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 27 days ago

      No Salah, no Aguero, Mané was a known issue, Kane is Kane.....

      Dunno, at second glance it's not thát surprising tbh...

  6. n-doggg
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    Those Arsenal’s goals last night really were a thing of beauty.

    Considering ozil just for the aesthetics rather than fpl potential.

    1. GoonerByron
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      10, 10, 12 in 3 of his last 4 games doesn't seem bad for FPL potential 😉

      1. Tshelby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        Just can't trust Ozil imo as a fpl potential

    2. Geoff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      I'm scouting them until GW16 I think

    3. nisag17
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Wow never thought I would hear aesthetics as a reason on this site 🙂 Agree that Ozil looked really good.

  7. TerryVenables
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    Transfer out Patricio? 2FTs and no other issues.
    Have Bennett and fixtures turning bad.

    1. Andy Ftw
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Despite his great returns so far, I think makes sense - to Fab or Ryan

  8. Dave Dreamer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 27 days ago

    Planning on holding a transfer this week (or removing Neves to save 0.5)

    Foster
    Robertson - Trippier - Pereia - Alonso
    Richarlison - Salah - Hazard - Fraser
    Agüero - Mitrovic

    Bench: Fabianski - Kamara - Neves - Wan-Bissaka

    This look ok?

    1. Fantasizer
      • 2 Years

      G2G... although i would have wan bissaka first sub

    Do you think TAA to Robertson worth a hit?

    1. GoonerByron
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      No... Wait and see who starts in Champions League.

    2. Dave Dreamer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Depends on the depth of your bench.

      Not keen on -4 for a defender.

      1. altan8797
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        Got AWB on bench,

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

    3. nisag17
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Yes Long term transfers are worth a hit.

    1. Dave Dreamer

      If i had the funds i would be tempted to switch to Madderson.

    Scout Picks Community Champion Lottery – Gameweek 10

    Once again, one champion representing the community will take on the Scout Picks this week with a chance to win a prize at the end of the season!

    If you want to take part please email your FFS name and FPL ID number to community@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk by midday on Wednesday.

    The champion will be selected at random at 17:00 on Wednesday and then asked to submit their XI by 10:00 on Friday.

    This will require 11 picks, fitting into an 83m budget. There is no captain in the picks and the community champion must also stick to a designated FPL formation, and also must not include more than three players from a single team. Again, no chips or captaincy will be applied.

    At the end of the season the champion who has beaten the Scout Picks by the highest margin will receive a £100 Amazon voucher.

    The weekly champion will be revealed in the midweek Scout Squad article, which will outline the Scout’s initial thinking around the choices. Our picks and the champion’s picks will be revealed, as usual, in the Scout Picks article.

    Should the community champion fail to provide an appropriate squad, fitting the budget and formation constraints, an caretaker manager will be appointed to take control of the selection to represent the community for the gameweek in question.

    Submit now if you’re interested for Gameweek 10!

    Good luck

    Curious FFS team news don't predict KDB starting! If he looks sharp and gets minutes tonight then, Richy > KDB is a go!

    1. Geoff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Generally Team News gets a full go over Thursday and Friday. The Monday update is a bit more cautious with predictions for players coming back from injury. Certainly Team News will react to the midweek games, KDB included!

  14. Fantasizer

    westwood to roberto peryera for a FT?
    will have no spare cash itb

  15. joeydelucchi
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    Anyone has Doherty in their first 11 and happy not to rotate him?
    I cant decide between too good for my bench and not good enough for my first 11?

    1. Fantasizer
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      play him against brighton

      1. joeydelucchi
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        yes but what about going forward?...keep but rotate him you'd say?

    2. nisag17
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      I have. Won't be rotating him. But I have a very light bench. Depends on your bench I guess. I think though that Wolves can perform even against the top six. They conceded just one goal against Man city and Man United. And the goal for Man City was from a set play.

      1. joeydelucchi
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        I guess the 2 against Watford has set doubts in my mind a little. So keep him in my back 4, frees up a lot of funds if i do as i will sell alonso for Duffy i think, this will leave me with duffy-taa-rob-mendy-doh ...good enough?

  16. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    If I switch Richarlison to Maddison, I then have 0.1 in the bank and Mitro to Arnie is a move I want next week and I need 0.2 currently to do it.

    Do I...
    A) Keep Rich, do the Arnie move for free next week.
    B) Do the Maddison transfer and hope Mitrovic rises value to allow the Arnie move next week
    C) Do the Maddison transfer and wait until GW12 for Arnie as part of a double transfer.
    D) Get Pereya instead of either and open up funds for the Arnie move
    E) Take a hit this week or next

    Bench Mendy (tot) for Brooks (ful)?

    A) Insane in the membrane.
    B) 2 weeks in the asylum, do not pass go, do not collect £200.
    C) Risky but why not?
    D) Just no.

      A or B, but I suppose Fulham are awful defensively. Either one is a great 3rd bencher.

    3. Goat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A,B and D

    Worst wildcard ever.

    What to do with this rubbish:

    Fabianski
    TAA Mendy Duffy
    Richarlison Maddison Hazard Sterling
    Aguero Laca Mitro

    Subs: Doherty,Yedlin,Bacuna,Hamer

    1. Eden Wizard
      • 1 Year

      Calm it, it's a nice team, really unlucky if you scored badly?

      Play Doherty for Duffy>?

    2. Dave Dreamer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Only TAA is a problem

    3. Gentlemen Crier

      Hold, IMO. Unlucky this week.

      I'm actually considering getting him and rotating with Kenedy - works well this side of Christmas.

    I can get KDB by downgrading Bellerin

    Whom to get rid for KDB?

    1. Maddison
    or
    2. Richarlison

    1. Eden Wizard
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 27 days ago

      I'm doing Richy 🙂 Maddison has savage fixtures and looks a gem (non-owner)

    2. Gooner97
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Why sell Maddison?

    3. Dave Dreamer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Sell Rich.

  21. Gooner97
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    A) Son to Ozil
    B) Aguero to Auba/Laca
    C) Get other Arsenal player

    1. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      If you really want an Arsenal player then B but I think you want to keep Aguero?

    2. Delhidynamo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      A sounds good, Ozil was different class last night

      1. Gooner97
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        Wish I never bought Son over Ozil in the past

        1. Delhidynamo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          happens, past experiences

          But this is a new era

      2. NATSTER
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        I have considered B, but it doesn't feel good to go without Kün. A looks like a clear upgrade.

  22. Tshelby

    Play

    A) Trippier - MCI (H)
    B) Bennett - BHA (A)
    C) Billing - WAT (A)

    Best Mid under £5m?

    Want to save a bit of coin from Nevez.

    1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      If they need to play a few then Murphy or Kenedy, otherwise get anyone who plays that is as cheap as possible. Hojbjerg is the premium 4.5 perhaps because he has the odd goal - but I'm hoping that Stephens drops to 4.3, or Romeu gets starts again at the same price.

      1. Dave Dreamer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 27 days ago

        ohh Stephens is a good shout now he's back. save 0.6 and guaranteed starter.

  25. CelticBhoy1

    Is Salah essential for this GW?

    1. Dave Dreamer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Nobody is essential. just good options

  26. BRUCE THE MOOSE (F.K.A RAFA…
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    Thoughts on Firmino over the next 6? No longer a certain starter? Looking for a Kane downgrade to be able to get Maddison in for Cairney.

    He outscores Kane over the next 6 according to RMT

    1. JaydenLFC87
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      He will start

    2. NATSTER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      I think he still a certain starter. He just got some rotation for rest after long international matches.

  27. JaydenLFC87
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    Which pair will score more points over the next 6 week's

    A) Luiz KDB

    B) Capoue Aubameyang

  28. HD7

    All who made Mane to Sterling last GW especially those for -4... and have Hazard...

    What are your plans?
    Keeping Sterling or paying the price and make new hits to take Salah?

    Personally I will
    keep Sterling for Spurs and Shampton and then reassess...

    1. NATSTER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      I'm one of them but not for -4.

      I already have both Hazard & Salah, so it's not urgent to remove him.

      But I also have Aguero. Two City attacks against Spurs, I'm not so confident.

      1. HD7
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        How do you have them four wow
        Your defence probably is hurt?

        1. NATSTER
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 27 days ago

          Yes. I probably took Trippier out 1 week early to fund Mané -> Sterling.

          A bit hurt. 🙁

  29. Jellyfish
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    Current team, thinking it may be time to WC. Yes or no?

    Fab/Pat
    Rob Alonso AWB Doherty Bennett
    Haz Frazer Rich Mane Stephens
    Kun Kane Ings

    1. NATSTER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      The team look strong, IMO. It depends on number of changes that you want to make.

      1. Jellyfish
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        I want Salah back in which would probably mean swapping Kane to raise funds, which would require a hit

        1. NATSTER
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 27 days ago

          I saw Mané there, so I forgot about Salah. It's not worth the WC to offset -4 though.

  30. NATSTER
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 27 days ago

    I have both Aguero & Sterling now and I’m thinking about removing one and allocating funds to strengthen my DF.

    Ryan - Button
    Alonso - Doherty - Yedlin - WB - Bennett
    “Sterling” - Salah - Hazard - Fraser - Hojbjerg
    “Aguero” - Mitrovic - Wilson

    Which route would you take ?

    A) Keep Aguero & Remove Sterling : possibly get Maddison and fund to upgrade DF

    B) Keep Sterling & Remove Aguero : choices are Vardy or Firmino or Lacazette

    C) Keep both this week for TOT (A) and re-assess next week

    1. El Topo
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      Keep the one that’s got over 50% ownership, is captainable and more or less nailed.

      1. NATSTER
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        Thanks. I now think it's not a good option to remove Kün.

    2. Delhidynamo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      I'd remove Sterling, less risk compared to Serg

      1. NATSTER
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        Thank you.

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 27 days ago

      A to fund WB to Robertson

      1. NATSTER
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        WB is capable to get bonus points and I got him at 4.0m

        My plan is to fund Yedlin to Robertson and keep both 4.0 DFs : WB & Bennett.

        Btw, not sure if Bennett has a risk. It's probably time to ring the changes in Wolves line-up after their lost in the last GW.

        1. HD7
          • 2 Years
          10 months, 27 days ago

          Would take off Bennet and keep Yedlin

          1. NATSTER
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            10 months, 27 days ago

            Cheers. Not so confident with Newcastle, but they have good fixtures to ride on.
