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

      Didn't even get close to surviving, cheers for running this TM.

  3. Forza Juventus
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    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
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

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

      1. EMERGING STAR
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

        With Carroll Perez and Chicha available why should Anderson play OOP

      2. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 19 days 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
      5 months, 19 days 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
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

        Oh awesome, will do, thanks.

  4. GoonSquad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    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
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Kolasinac and Trippier dodgy for the time being. Tripp injured

    2. Forza Juventus
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 19 days 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
      5 months, 19 days 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
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 19 days 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
          • 8 Years
          5 months, 19 days 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
            5 months, 19 days 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
    5 months, 19 days 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
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Arnie to Lacazette?

    2. Dakes. 🙂
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days 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
        5 months, 19 days ago

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

          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
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Arnie to Lacazette (c).

    4. seewhyaxe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days 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
        5 months, 19 days ago

        Don't have enough.
        0.2m short.

        1. seewhyaxe
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 19 days 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
            5 months, 19 days 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
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Arnie to Laca?

    6. EMERGING STAR
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 19 days 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
        5 months, 19 days ago

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

    8. GoonSquad

      Alonso to Aderweield and Arnie to Auba?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          5 months, 19 days ago

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

          1. TorresMagic™

            • Has Moderation Rights

            WC gone.

    9. noahzark22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      arn to Rondon

  6. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 19 days 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. Dakes. 🙂
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

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

    3. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

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

      1. EMERGING STAR
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

        Robbo to TAA is worth?

        1. TorresMagic™

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 9 Years

          If you need the money.

      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days 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
      • 1 Year

      CBAD for their prices

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

    3. SweeSwee

      ABCD

  8. vova
    • 8 Years
    5 months, 19 days 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
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Not for -8

    2. Dakes. 🙂

    4. Goodish

      Might do. Him or Auba

  11. tvz32
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 19 days ago

    I have 4 players facing each other

    Sterling
    Sane
    Hazard
    Alonso

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

    1. Dakes. 🙂
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days 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
        5 months, 19 days ago

        Fraser for me

    2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 5 Years

      If you have decent backup, sure

  12. Holmes (specialist in failu…
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 19 days 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
      5 months, 19 days 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
        5 months, 19 days ago

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

      2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 19 days 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
          5 months, 19 days ago

          He is starting on sat and im gonna captain him..cant get easier than hudd home

        2. Nabs Kebabs
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 19 days ago

          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

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

      Eriksen

      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
        5 months, 19 days 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

      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?

    1. Ógie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      I think they will concede but win the match.

    2. Goodish
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Wouldn’t surprise me

  16. L'Aeroplanino
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

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

  17. Ógie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

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

    1. Goodish
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 19 days ago

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

      1. Ógie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

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

    2. Dakes. 🙂
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days 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
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 19 days 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?

        1. Nabs Kebabs
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 19 days ago

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

          1. Ógie
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            5 months, 19 days ago

            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
      5 months, 19 days ago

      More nailed than Sterling until Mendy returns

    2. EMERGING STAR
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      I did Salah, Arnie to Sane, Laca.

      Would recommend your moves

  19. SweeSwee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    Chicharito anyone?

    1. Dakes. 🙂
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

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

  20. jon.terry.tfh
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    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.

  21. DAZZ
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

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

    1. Dakes. 🙂
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days 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

  22. BlzE_94
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    Any news on Martial injury? Also best Arnautovic replacement?

    1. _figu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Hamstring, not sure if serious yet. Wilson

  23. Patty
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 19 days 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
      5 months, 19 days ago

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

  24. Strchld
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 19 days 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
      5 months, 19 days ago

      B with Richarlison

      1. _figu
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 19 days ago

        Rich is 7.1

    2. _figu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 19 days ago

      I'd prioritize bringing Sterling in so A for me

    3. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      A sounds good

    4. Strchld
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days 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
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Is C with Son an option?

      1. Strchld
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 19 days 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)

  25. _figu
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 19 days 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
      5 months, 19 days 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
        5 months, 19 days 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
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 19 days 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
        5 months, 19 days ago

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

    3. Nabs Kebabs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 19 days 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
        5 months, 19 days 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. Dakes. 🙂
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

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

      Moves look sound enough

  26. Nuno
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 19 days 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
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Yes

    2. Dakes. 🙂
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Yeah don’t do that. You have AWB?

      1. Nuno
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

        I do

    3. Nuno
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Gomez and Clyne are both injured

    4. EMERGING STAR
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Absolutely crazy to get Moreno

      1. Nuno
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

        Moreno as a bench option to cover rotation

  27. yer old da
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 19 days 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. Dakes. 🙂
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days 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
      5 months, 19 days 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.

  28. waltzingmatildas
    • 8 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    Initial thoughts on this wc team please?
    Fabianski hamer
    TAA Digne Doherty Cedric awb
    Sane dilva siggy Anderson fraser
    Kane aubameyang Wilson

    1. Dakes. 🙂
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

      Yeah looks pretty good. Any reason for siggy over richarlison?

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 19 days ago

        Already have him, plus I feel like rich is a red card waiting to happen?

    2. _figu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 19 days ago

      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
      5 months, 19 days ago

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

  30. The Red Devil
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 19 days ago

    Best martial alternative?
    Anderson or richarlison?

    1. Dakes. 🙂
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 19 days ago

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