Salah benched as Mane and Robertson miss out altogether

Six Premier League matches take place this evening to bring Gameweek 15 to a swift close, with many Fantasy Premier League captains – and vice-captains, following Sergio Aguero (£11.0m) and Raheem Sterling‘s (£11.5m) no-shows at Watford – set to be in action.

Mohamed Salah (£13.0m), Harry Kane (£12.4m) and Eden Hazard (£11.0m) are the second, third and fourth-most popular captaincy options of this midweek round of matches – but just two of these in-demand players start for their respective clubs tonight.

Salah is only among the substitutes for Liverpool tonight as Jurgen Klopp rings the changes at Turf Moor, with injured pair Sadio Mane (£9.8m) and Andrew Robertson (£6.5m) not in the match-day squad and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£5.3m) and Roberto Firmino (£9.2m) also dropping to the bench.

Xherdan Shaqiri (£7.0m) lines up in a front three with Divock Origi (£5.0m) and Daniel Sturridge (£5.8m).

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.2m), who has experienced price rises in three consecutive days having been transferred in by over 525,000 FPL managers ahead of last night’s deadline, also lines up for Arsenal as the Gunners head to Old Trafford.

Alexandre Lacazette (£9.6m) is named as a substitute for the third match running as Unai Emery perseveres with a 3-4-2-1, while Jose Mourinho has dropped Romelu Lukaku (£10.7m) and Paul Pogba (£7.9m) to the bench as he matches the Gunners with a three-man backline.

Hazard is named in Chelsea’s starting XI along with Marcos Alonso (£7.1m) as the Blues head to Molineux, though there are five changes elsewhere in Maurizio Sarri’s starting XI.

Morgan Gibbs-White (£4.3m) replaces the suspended Ruben Neves (£5.0m) for Wolves, while Ryan Bennett (£4.2m) is recalled to Nuno Espirito Santo’s line-up.

Dele Alli (£8.9m) is among five players dropping out of Mauricio Pochettino’s starting XI for the visit of Southampton, with Kieran Trippier (£6.1m) fit to play at right-back.

Kane and Christian Eriksen (£9.2m) retain their starts after Sunday’s north London derby defeat.

Kelvin Davis has made four changes to the Saints side in what will be his only match in charge, with the south coast club reverting to a flat-back four.

Richarlison (£7.0m) is back on the left wing for Everton as Cenk Tosun (£6.6m) returns up front, with Rafael Benitez going ultra-defensive with a 5-4-1 at Goodison Park.

Jamie Vardy (£8.9m) is absent through injury as Leicester head to Craven Cottage, with Tom Cairney (£4.8m) dropping to the bench for the hosts.

Back to the fixture where we started this round-up, Sean Dyche has made five changes to his Burnley starting XI as James Tarkowski (£4.7m) returns in defence.

Burnley XI: Hart, Bardsley, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Gudmundsson, Cork, Westwood, Brady, Barnes, Wood.

Liverpool XI: Alisson, Gomez, Van Dijk, Matip, Moreno, Henderson, Milner, Keita, Shaqiri, Sturridge, Origi.

Everton XI: Pickford, Coleman, Zouma, Mina, Digne, Gueye, Gomes, Lookman, Sigurdsson, Richarlison, Tosun.

Newcastle United XI: Dubravka, Yedlin, Fernandez, Schar, Lascelles, Manquillo, Ki, Diame, Atsu, Rondon, Murphy.

Fulham XI: Rico, Christie, Odoi, Mawson, Le Marchand, Kamara, Chambers, Seri, Sessegnon, Vietto, Mitrovic.

Leicester City XI: Schmeichel, Simpson, Morgan, Soyuncu, Chilwell, Mendy, Ndidi, Albrighton, Maddison, Diabete, Iheanacho.

Wolverhampton Wanderers XI: Rui Patricio, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Doherty, Moutinho, Saiss, Vinagre, Gibbs-White, Jota, Jimenez.

Chelsea XI: Arrizabalaga, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Christensen, Alonso, Kante, Fabregas, Loftus-Cheek, Willian, Morata, Hazard.

Manchester United XI: De Gea, Dalot, Bailly, Rojo, Smalling, Darmian, Herrera, Matic, Lingard, Martial, Rashford.

Arsenal XI: Leno, Bellerin, Sokratis, Holding, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Guendouzi, Torreira, Ramsey, Iwobi, Aubameyang.

Tottenham Hotspur XI: Lloris, Trippier, Alderweireld, Foyth, Rose, Dier, Winks, Eriksen, Son, Lucas, Kane.

Southampton XI: McCarthy, Cedric, Yoshida, Stephens, Targett, Hojbjerg, Davis, Redmond, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong, Gabbiadini.

    Ryan-Button
    Alonso-TAA-Laporte-Doherty-AWB
    Salah-Sterling-Richarlison-Fraser-Camarasa
    Kane-Arnie-Wilson

    Should I do:

    A) Arnie to Jimenez
    B) Kane to Auba and Arnie to Jimenez for -4
    C) Salah to Silva and Arnie to Auba for -4
    D) Something else

      Couldn't do B, A or C maybe.

      Could you hold this week and do C for free next week?

  3. Forza Juventus

    Thoughts on Snodgrass as an option going forward?

    I'm looking to downgrade F Anderson and upgrade elsewhere quite drastically with the 1.7 saved.

    1. GoonSquad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      12 days, 10 hours ago

      On corners, only worry would be with Arnie out FA plays OOP and gets some goals with their schedule.

      1. EMERGING STAR
        • 2 Years
        12 days, 10 hours ago

        With Carroll Perez and Chicha available why should Anderson play OOP

      2. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
        • 3 Years
        12 days, 10 hours ago

        Snoddy would be a useful squad strengthener but FA is a definite keep for me. I want him - but need to figure out how.

    2. _figu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 10 hours ago

      I am seriously considering him over F. Anderson. It would enable Ings to Wilson next GW for me. There was some discussion earlier on him if you want to check it out, look at my comment history.

      1. Forza Juventus
        • 3 Years
        12 days, 10 hours ago

        Oh awesome, will do, thanks.

  4. GoonSquad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Bottomed

    Could usesome thoughts on WC

    Fab Steele
    Kolasanic Tripp Digne TAA AWB
    Sane, Sterling Rich Gunnarson Hojberg
    Auba Kane Wilson

    Not sold on a Spurs mid with Kane, and not willing to invest in Pool attack at cost of Mane and Salah. Will look to get Haz back after City match.

    1. DAZZ
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 10 hours ago

      Kolasinac and Trippier dodgy for the time being. Tripp injured

    2. Forza Juventus
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 10 hours ago

      If you're set on 4-3-3 then my issue really lies with Kola, Arsenal haven't kept a cleaner since Leno became their keeper, he may get rotated, probably better options out there like Alonso if you have cash If not Doherty isn't a terrible a shout, as a money saver you could also do David Luiz or Balbuena. Rest of the team is pretty solid, I also think you could benefit from a 3-4-3 though. Maybe one of the mids to Brooks/Snodgrass, since you could easily start Trippier Digne TAA and leave AWB and whoever Kola becomes as bench players (or start the Kola replacement with Trippier and TAA/Digne). Up to your preference though, good luck.

    3. _figu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 10 hours ago

      I'd punt on Kolasinac at that price on WC. Wouldn't pick Trippier though. Struggling with injuries, makes him even more of a rotation risk than before. I'd downgrade him and upgrade your 4th mid.

      1. Forza Juventus
        • 3 Years
        12 days, 9 hours ago

        Yeah i think he could benefit from upgrading the 4th mid for sure, at the expense of Kola or Tripp or whatever he prefers.

        1. GoonSquad
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          12 days, 9 hours ago

          Not many worth it in mid if I upgrade Hojberg and downgrade Tripp. Best case is 5.5 mid, if I take Kola to Bennett could do Fraser, but not thrilled with Bou double up especially with Pool.

          1. _figu
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            Yeah, 6.2 is pricey for Fraser. Happily keeping and still looking to double paying 7 mil for Wilson myself.

            As for your team, I'd do Trippier to Doherty and 4th mid to Snodgrass. Worth a punt at his price, good fixtures for a while.

  5. TorresMagic™
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 9 Years
    12 days, 10 hours ago

    Early ideas on this bunch?

    Fabianski Patricio
    Alonso Robertson AWB Doherty Schindler
    Sterling Sane Richarlison Anderson Hojbjerg
    Kane Arnie* Jimenez

    1 FT, 3.1m in bank

    Cheers in advance.

    1. jon.terry.tfh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      12 days, 10 hours ago

      Arnie to Lacazette?

    2. Top Lad Dakes.
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 10 hours ago

      Defensively looks fine, only thing I would do is downgrade one of the keepers (probably patricio) next time you have a spare FT, to give you some $

      Honestly looks pretty solid up top too. Obvious move maybe is Arnie to Lacazette. What are your thoughts on Wilson? Fixtures are bad but form is undeniable

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 9 Years
        12 days, 10 hours ago

        I hate Wilson. 😛
        Great form and template top 10K player.

        1. Top Lad Dakes.

          12 days, 9 hours ago

          I know. Haven’t owned him at all this season (happy Fraser owner though). I wish I’d gone for him over King at the start of the season though

    3. Nabs Kebabs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      12 days, 10 hours ago

      Arnie to Lacazette (c).

    4. seewhyaxe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 10 hours ago

      If I may suggest something bold & templatish, not sure if you can afford it:

      Robertson & Arnie to TAA & Auba

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 9 Years
        12 days, 10 hours ago

        Don't have enough.
        0.2m short.

        1. seewhyaxe
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          12 days, 9 hours ago

          there's another alternative, just may not be as good.

          Alonso to Luiz; Arnie to Auba.

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 9 Years
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            Yeah, was thinking about selling Jim if I want Auba. Money is a bit stretched in my team. Nearly got Auba for a juicy hit last GW, would have saved 0.3 but cost me quite a few points.

    5. osceola31909
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 10 hours ago

      Arnie to Laca?

    6. EMERGING STAR
      • 2 Years
      12 days, 10 hours ago

      I think you would want Fabianski starting for another 7 or 8 games. So why Patricio?

      Arnie to Lacazette?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 9 Years
        12 days, 9 hours ago

        I only got Fab in GW11.
        One of the good things I've done recently.

    7. TorresMagic™

    8. GoonSquad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Alonso to Aderweield and Arnie to Auba?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 9 Years
        12 days, 9 hours ago

        Only 5.7 left

        1. GoonSquad
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          12 days, 9 hours ago

          One week punt of Arnie to Rashford? Then WC week 17.

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 9 Years

            WC gone.

    9. noahzark22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      arn to Rondon

  6. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
    • 3 Years
    12 days, 10 hours ago

    Two quick ones?
    A. Any news on Kenedy? How injured is he, or dropped?
    B. Is TAA a much better option with the Gomez injury? Tempted to get him in if he's free of rotation

    1. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      A- No word yet
      B- yes

    2. Top Lad Dakes.
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 10 hours ago

      I haven’t heard
      In theory should be more nailed, yeah.

    3. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      12 days, 10 hours ago

      Toe injury, not too serious.
      I guess so but Clyne is an option when TAA needs to be saved.

      1. EMERGING STAR
        • 2 Years
        12 days, 9 hours ago

        Robbo to TAA is worth?

        1. TorresMagic™

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 9 Years

          If you need the money.

    Please rank:
    A- F Anderson

    D- Maddison
    Thanks!

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 10 hours ago

      I have A and C, so may show some bias

      But I think ACBD for short term but then in a few weeks A and B pretty much together, then C then D. Rich next couple may be tough, but smooth sailing after that whereas Anderson’s next few are peak (main reason I brought him in over rich tonight)

    2. _figu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      CBAD for their prices

      Fraser 5.5, if buying now I'd put him after Richarlison

  8. vova
    • 8 Years
    12 days, 10 hours ago

    Alonso, Salah, Arnautovic to Kolasinac, Sterling, Aubameyang for a -8. Sounds crazy but kind of tempted to do it. Is it too much of a knee jerk?

    1. GoonSquad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      12 days, 10 hours ago

      Not for -8

    2. Top Lad Dakes.

    5. tvz32

      I have 4 players facing each other

      Sterling
      Sane
      Hazard
      Alonso

      Should i just bench Alonso? Don’t see Chelsea keeping a CS

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • 1 Year
        12 days, 9 hours ago

        I’m struggling with this too. For me it’s play 1 of diangana (CRY) AWB (whu) Fraser (LIV) or Alonso (MCI).

        I’m currently playing Alonso really based on fear factor if he somehow manages to get attacking returns, but don’t expect much

        1. Patty
          • 4 Years
          12 days, 9 hours ago

          Fraser for me

      2. Holmes
        • 5 Years
        12 days, 9 hours ago

        If you have decent backup, sure

    6. Holmes
      • 5 Years
      12 days, 9 hours ago

      Another sub appearance for Lacazzete, umm... No indication he will start anytime soon? Especially of they continue to start with same formation 😮

      1. Nabs Kebabs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        12 days, 9 hours ago

        The formation doesn't effect him at all...he was the most nailed attacker in the team from GW4-GW12 when we played with a front 3. Has got his fitness back now so it's very likely he starts vs Huddersfield on the weekend.

        1. Nabs Kebabs
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          12 days, 9 hours ago

          Actually, I seem to have forgotten we played with the 4231...not a front 3

        2. Holmes
          • 5 Years
          12 days, 9 hours ago

          Guess i will wait for one more week, plan was to bring and captain him but dont know what to do at the moment...

          1. Silecro
            • 1 Year

            do you really want to miss the likely goalfest that Huddersfield will be for Arsenal players? Especially when a large chunk of the top10k will captain Auba or Laca?

            Auba has played a lot of minutes recently and he's more reliant on being fresh out of the 2 players. I do believe Laca will start and Auba is the 50/50 for the weekend.

        Shame as he scores when on the pitch

    7. Patty

      Sane or Eriksen on a WC?
      Currently have Kane and Sterling.

        Wow, nice one. I hope to hit those dizzy heights at some stage!
        Been stuck drifting between 2k and a low (for this period) of 4.5k (this week) for the last 7 weeks - by no means bad, but a bit stuck

        1. Silecro
          • 1 Year
          12 days, 9 hours ago

          Tell me bout it, i started season electrically, been top 800 after 3 weeks, now in bit of a slump with 35k OR, but its a long season...double gameweeks gonna shake things up massively anyway

      2. Top Lad Dakes.

        Hopefully my moves of Kane and Anderson in for salah and Arnie launch me up in the coming weeks

        1. Silecro

          They certainly will, i hope same for laca whom i brought couple of mins ago

      Anyone see City keeping a clean sheet at stamford bridge?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I think they will concede but win the match.

      2. Goodish

          Wouldn’t surprise me

        TAA to get a rest this weekend? where’s Clyne?

        Transfer window opening shortly so what players do you think can stop the rot at United?

        1. Goodish
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            No one, need a new manager and a five year plan.

              Probably better off waiting until the end of the season to deal with Jose but we need a quick fix for the time being.

            • 1 Year
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            They need Mou out, honestly.

            Need a good CB to try and do what VVD did to Liverpool defensively. A good striker if they can attract one too, with lukaku off it for whatever reason. Also may as well sell sanchez and use funds

            1. Ógie
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              12 days, 9 hours ago

              Yeah a CB and some fullbacks/wingbacks are a must.

              I wonder if Spurs will take a swap deal for Lukaku>Kane and some money to help them paint the new stadium?

                Lukaku wouldn't suit Poch's style at all...can't even control the ball

                1. Ógie

                  • 5 Years

                  Take Poch to United too then i guess.

          How nailed on is Sane in comparison to Sterling? Thinking of doing Salah and Arnautovic to Sane and Aubameyang for a -4 point hit.

          1. SweeSwee
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            More nailed than Sterling until Mendy returns

          2. EMERGING STAR
            • 2 Years
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            I did Salah, Arnie to Sane, Laca.

            Would recommend your moves

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          1. Top Lad Dakes.
            • 1 Year
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            Arnie to Kane was my move, but if you don’t have the funds he could be a decent bet with those fixtures

          Please help. Duffy and Arnie both flagged. Need to get rid asap. Thoughts?

          Allison Hamer
          Duffy(!) Alonso Laporte WanB Bennett
          Sterling Sane Richardlison Fraser F.Anderson
          Kane Arnie(!) Wilson
          1FT 0.9ITB.

          Ideally want Auba/Laca but also need to get rid of Duffy and Arnie. Would Bellerin be a good shout? Pondered about Duffy Alonso Arnie out for TAA Balbuena Laca for a -8. Any other thoughts? Please help.

        5. DAZZ
          • 4 Years

          Just pulled the trigger on Alonso > Laporte. Need the funds for Kane next week, and i see City keeping it tight against chelsea

          1. Top Lad Dakes.
            • 1 Year
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            Fair enough. The fear factor of what Alonso can do on his day coupled with their fixtures after city are swaying me away from selling though

        6. BlzE_94
          • 4 Years

          Any news on Martial injury? Also best Arnautovic replacement?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year

            Hamstring, not sure if serious yet. Wilson

        7. Patty
          • 4 Years
          12 days, 9 hours ago

          Better option on a WC?
          A. Sane Bennett TAA
          B. Son Doherty TAA
          C. Son Bennett Robertson

          1. _figu
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            Tough one. B overall best but given Wolves upcoming fixtures and Sane over Son for me, maybe A better.

        8. Strchld
          • 2 Years
          12 days, 9 hours ago

          If Mane is out against bou, which move looks better:

          Arnie and Mane out
          In

          A) Sterling and Jimenez (have Sane)
          B) Auba and max 6.9m mid. Who? (dont have any Ars)
          C) Laca and Mahrez (huge rotation risk)

          1. Patty
            • 4 Years
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            B with Richarlison

            1. _figu
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              12 days, 9 hours ago

              Rich is 7.1

          2. _figu
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            I'd prioritize bringing Sterling in so A for me

          3. Max City
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            A sounds good

          4. Strchld
            • 2 Years
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            Auba/Laca and Sterling looks a "must have" for me. Cant have both, so.. Dont find any good midfielder under 6.9 mil.

          5. Spokey
            • 3 Years
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            Is C with Son an option?

            1. Strchld
              • 2 Years
              12 days, 8 hours ago

              It could be. Just cant see him starting against Lei and Im already strugglin to get even 11 on the pitch.
              Have Trippier, Martial (both injured) and Billing (ban) Sane (50-50 he is starting against Che)

        9. _figu
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          12 days, 9 hours ago

          Okay, pages are not flying anymore and some quality conversation so I'll post a rare RMT.

          Ryan
          Alonso Robbo Doherty AWB
          Sterling Hazard Dilva Fraser
          Kane Arnie*

          Henne Ings Bennett Kante

          Looking at
          GW16 Hazard, Arnie out for Auba (c), Snodgrass
          GW17 Ings to Wilson

          Decent?

          1. Patty
            • 4 Years
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            Wouldn't rush to get double BOU attackers given fixtures. Maybe Mitro?

            Also not sure about Snodgrass long term. Not a very inspiring pick haha

            1. _figu
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              12 days, 9 hours ago

              I don't mind the fixtures. Scored against City. Mitro would be the alternative. Great fixtures GW17-25. 4 yellows though.

          2. EMERGING STAR
            • 2 Years
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            It's more than decent. Snoddy will be big rank booster with less than 1% ownership

            1. _figu
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              12 days, 9 hours ago

              That'd be awesome. Would come in as an enabler over F. Anderson

          3. Nabs Kebabs
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            Why do you want Wilson GW17? Will have 3 away fixtures in the next 4, 2 of which are Spurs and United. I'm a Wilson owner btw.

            1. _figu
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              12 days, 9 hours ago

              He won't stop scoring 😎 Looks like he is having one of those seasons. It's him or Mitro, would decide after next GW.

              Auba versus Laca is tough one as well. Auba better price point for later though (Kun possibly becoming an option later).

          4. Top Lad Dakes.
            • 1 Year

            Haha yeah, best to wait til this time for a RMT.

            Moves look sound enough

        10. Nuno
          • 5 Years
          12 days, 9 hours ago

          So I'm in need of a 4.2 defender, was looking at Bennett and Kiko... but then I saw Moreno. As I already have Robertson and TAA, would it be crazy to get Moreno as cover?

          1. Patty
            • 4 Years

            Yes

          3. Nuno
            • 5 Years

            Gomez and Clyne are both injured

          4. EMERGING STAR
            • 2 Years
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            Absolutely crazy to get Moreno

            1. Nuno
              • 5 Years
              12 days, 9 hours ago

              Moreno as a bench option to cover rotation

        11. yer old da
          • 9 Years
          12 days, 9 hours ago

          Thoughts on this WC team? Glaring omission is Salah but he’s not doing it at 13m and the big 2 up top give you home and away rotation. Plus also means I keep the 3 cheap defender strategy in place as well as a strong midfield.

          Fabianski, Foster
          Laporte, TAA (Doherty/Balbuena/AWB)
          Sterling, Sane, Richarlison, Fraser (Kayal)
          Kane, Aubameyang, Jimenez

          1. Top Lad Dakes.
            • 1 Year
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            Looks good overall.
            Since WC, drop one of the keepers to a 4.0 (maybe take your pick of the Brighton ones).

          2. _figu
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            Yeah agreed with previous poster, I'd go for only 1 keeper as well (although I went for Henne/Ryan GW3)

            Other than that, very similar what I'd go for now on WC. Looks solid.

            • 1 Year

            I like it a lot. Would go Siggy over Richarlison as well. Maybe I'm annoyed I dropped him but Siggy has better stats and should come good.

          Hey lads, 2 things. First, team look alright for now? Did Kane and Anderson in for Salah and Arnie this week (2FT) leaving 1.1 ITB - I’ve had Salah all season but he was the easiest downgrade to be able to fund Kane for those fixtures, and he isn’t getting it done really. Burnley game was the last straw for me (captained him).

          Fabianski - Hamer
          Alonso Robertson Doherty Digne - AWB
          Hazard DSilva Anderson - Fraser Diangana
          Aubameyang(c) Kane(vc) Jiménez

          Second thing:
          One obvious use of the 1.1 ITB could be Haz to Sterling(unless I downgraded to Sane instead for even more $, which tempts). However with CHE MCI this week, I don’t really want to make any transfers involving players from those teams - will just stick with what I have for now. Good idea?

          1. _figu
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            Great team. Haz to Sterling looks good after they play each other.

          Best martial alternative?
          Anderson or richarlison?

            • 1 Year
            12 days, 9 hours ago

            I went for Anderson short term, will reassess in a few weeks after rich’s Tough fixtures out of the way
