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.

      thanks all.
      if I do Salah to Sterling this week I can afford Arnie for Auba.

    On wildcard, keep Hazard or get rid? He has constant returns and I have him from GW3

    1. fenixri

      What I am asking

      • 1 Year

      Im doing Haz>Sterling after Che v city. Hazard doesnt look fit right now and Morata and Giroud are hurting his points. Not providing good value imo

  4. HVT
    • 8 Years

    If you had to pick;

    A - Wilson (6.9)
    B - Fraser (5.6)

  5. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

    Is it worth having Chica instead of Wilson just for next 2? Then get in Wilson

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 4 Years

      Really depends how much value you lose

        I don't have Wilson right now, just deciding my Arnie replacement and Wilson will cost 7

  6. Miguel Sanchez

    Alonso and Arnie > TAA and Auba -4
    Thoughts?

    1. Super Saints
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Yep Alonso and Arnie to AWB and Lacazette for me

      1. Ekip
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Alonso and Arnie to Bellerin and Auba for me

  10. ol3andre

    • 3 Years
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    Team:
    Fabianski / Hamer
    Digne / Chilwell / Robertson / Doherty / Bennett
    Salah / Richarlison / Sterling / Fanderson / Camarasa
    Kane / Arnie / Wilson

    What option seems the best? 0,3 ITB

    A) Arnie ---> Mitrovic
    B) Arnie ---> Jimenez
    C) Chilwell --> Bellerin
    D) Chilwell --> TAA
    E) Do a combo for a -4

    1. Riders of Yohan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Could you afford Salah + Arnie -> auba + dilva?

      1. ol3andre
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Yes.

  11. Super Saints
    • 2 Years
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    Just seen that I lost my Trippier and Son clean sheet points in the 94th minute which gave me another red arrow

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      ?
      Trippier got 6 points

    2. TheDragon
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Trippier came off before the goal so you got his clean sheet - other things will have caused the red arrow!

      1. Super Saints
        • 2 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Oh yes thanks for that. Well I had Wilson Son Hazard Martial Salah and still got another big fat red

        1. TheDragon
          10 days, 15 hours ago

          Captain?

        2. TheDragon
          10 days, 15 hours ago

          No Kane = lots of pain!

  12. Forward Thinking
    TheDragon
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    Let’s talk Forwards

    Lots are now looking to get 2 big hitters up front (primarily Kane and Auba).

    However Wilson and Jimenez are providing incredible value and appear fixture and rotation proof. I know some people (not me) like other budget options like Mitro and Ings too.

    Is it time to move to 2 premium strikers or is 1 premium and a stronger midfield still the best approach.

    1. fenixri
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      I am always for midfield but fixtures and form suggest that Auba + Kane is the way to go.

      But Auba can be also replaced with Lacca and you can use that money to upgrade mid. Now for me Auba is much better pick.

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 4 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      For me it boils down to sterling or Kane. I don't have Wilson. I d keep if he was in my team. However now I feel I have missed the train as fixtures are getting trickier . Jimenez fixtures also get harder. Also Kane and auba offer great captaincy options. I wouldn't be so keen to captain sterling with rotation risks ....but what do. I know 🙂

      1. TheDragon
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        That is the big plus point fit having Kane and Auba, their vaktaincy rotation over next 6 or so weeks is incredible.

        How much of a rotation risk is Auba compared to Sterling though

        1. TheDragon
          10 days, 15 hours ago

          *captaincy

      2. fenixri
        • 2 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        It has to be Kane. He is only striker for Spurs in form, he will get much more game time then Sterling and honestly I believe Sane can cover Sterling atleast for december

        1. Distinctly Average
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          This

    3. Cabellafan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Yes agree. Was looking to get Laca for a hit with selling Robbo, but getting Mitro in for free seems the better move. He is smashing Laca for goal threat accordibg to stats too

    4. All Out of Mounie
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      I'm sticking to 2 budget + Kane. Got money tied up in every slot. Would have to downgrade a few players to get Auba for instance.

      Eder (Hamer)
      Robb Laporte Alonso (Dohrty Awb)
      Salah Rich Anderson Son (Billing)
      Kane Wilson Mitro

      1. TheDragon
        10 days, 14 hours ago

        Not worried about captaincy this week though? I assume Auba will be the runaway captaincy favourite

    5. Legomané
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Wildcard active, and this seems to be my defining dilemma...

      Auba or Kane (perhaps even a rotation of the two) gives a nice degree of flexibility, and maintains a strong defensive line that has served so well this season.

      Auba/Sterling captaincy rotation is also quite nice..

      But there’s a feeling of security, going with both...

      1. TheDragon
        10 days, 14 hours ago

        Ye I just can’t decide. Before gameweek 15 my plan was:

        GW15; Aguero and Hazard > Kane & Sane (which worked)

        GW16: Kane -> Auba (and captain).

        But now Im torn. Keep Kane, make the switch or wildcard for both?!

        It’s even more complicated this week as I do think there is a risk Auba’s minutes are managed.

        PS: this is my first ‘green post’ and also today is my first day of the season in the top 1k. It’s going to be a good day!

    6. Demel
      • 7 Years
      10 days, 14 hours ago

      The main question for me comes down to do you play an extra cheap midfielder or an extra cheap striker. For me there is nobody I want in midfield under 7m. Fraser is an option but not for me with those fixtures. You can pick up Mitrovic and Jimenez for 0.5m-1.0m less. Auba is 0.5m more than Hazard (or he is for me). On conclusion is Auba worth 1m+ more than Hazard. I am not convinced. You can never tell when Hazard will haul and Auba's season stats are impossible to maintain given his XG. They also have similar scores this time round.

      I have thought long about it. But ultimately I will go with Mitro+Hazard over Auba+Budget Mid.

      Ngog Yakubu and Van Nistelrooy please AB

      1. Flynny
        • 3 Years
        10 days, 14 hours ago

        Got myself a kane auba jiminez frontline for the weekend and v happy with that.

        Also got sterling sane richarlison.

        Alonso and TAA at the back - so it is easily possible to have 2 heavy hitters up front and a balanced squad.

        1. TheDragon
          10 days, 14 hours ago

          Yes but is it better to have Wilson (given his unrivalled points per £)?

          Who is your 4th midfielder and 3rd defender? How weak are they?

          1. Flynny
            • 3 Years
            10 days, 11 hours ago

            Fanderson is 4th mid.

            Other defenders awb schindler and vinagre

            1. TheDragon
              10 days, 10 hours ago

              That looks good

    8. The Hindu Monkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 days, 14 hours ago

      Auba Wilson Jimenez

      can't justify ripping up my midfield to get Kane in - really can't - those two are incredible value right now and fixture proof

    9. Spiders in Diapers
      • 3 Years
      10 days, 14 hours ago

      I think just Kane, with 2 budget forwards due to lack of midfield options below 7.1.

      Hazard sterling sane rich my preferred mid

    10. PUP02
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 days, 13 hours ago

      Can't see past Kane Wilson Jimenez atm.

      1. MTPockets
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 days, 13 hours ago

        Same

      2. JKJK
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 days, 13 hours ago

        Can't see past Aubameyang Wilson Jimenez myself.

    11. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 days, 13 hours ago

      I have Kane-Wilson-Jimenez and wants to bring Laca or Auba in but I can not decide who to drop from Wilson and Jimenez. It is one of the toughest decisions of the season. On the other hand premium mids are not performing well (other than City ones). I brought in Snodgrass yesterday to fund Kane-Laca/Auba but not comfortable with that at all. Maybe optimum solution is dropping Wilson and covering him with Fraser as he is the only viable one in his price bracket.

    12. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 days, 12 hours ago

      Going Kane Auba Jimenez
      For some unexplicable reason missed out on Wilson all along, think that train has come to a halt for now. Will bring him in for one of Auba or Kane down the line.

      1. The Mighty One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 days, 2 hours ago

        I thought the same way but Wilson just scored from open play against Citay!

    13. b82rz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 days, 12 hours ago

      Auba Kane Wilson for me

    14. Bird Raymond
      • 7 Years
      10 days, 11 hours ago

      I'm now on Kane, Auba and Jiminez. Midfield is fine with Sterling and Sane and you can fit 2 good mid priced mids, I currently have Richarlison and Martial. The trade off is in defence so looking to capitalise on some smart picks as I can't afford Robertson, Alonso etc.

    15. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 days, 8 hours ago

      Kane, Aubameyang and Lacazette for me. At least in the short term.

  13. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 4 Years
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    People say sterling should be first name in WC team in theory I agree but practically it is not that easy ...I have hazard and don't want to lose him. Would also like Kane up front. Straight away loads of funds are taken...aarrgghhh 🙂

    1. TheDragon
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      The issue there is that you’ve made Hazard the first name in your wildcard team.

      Famous last words but Sane maybe can cover sterling (overall - obviously week to week there will be some large variance!)

    2. fenixri
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      We are in same position buddy and I decided to keep Hazard and take Sane instead Sterling.

    3. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 4 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Thanks all 🙂

    4. Distinctly Average
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 14 hours ago

      Sane better value I think. Sterling may outscore him slightly, but that 2m saving is damn tasty

    5. Spiders in Diapers
      • 3 Years
      10 days, 14 hours ago

      Not advisable not to have kane and sterling. Both will be main captaincy choices for the top players week in week out. I would sacrifice hazard if u can't squeeze in all 3.

  14. Cabellafan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    Just compared Mitro and Laca. Mitro is crushing Laca. Also nailed with good fixtures. Not so sure I would take a hit for Laca now

      AWB ahead Alonso?
      i think MCI is a challenge

    Martial injury doesn't look good, who to swap out for 9.1ITB ? Need to do for a -4 as I've been stupid and not sorted a proper Xmas bench.
    Other MFs: Sterling, Mane, Richarlison, (Diangana)
    Good old Xmas ay!

      i have the same dilemma. unfortunately no one close to as good as martial at 7.6 except siggy but im staying away from him

      Maureen says it wasn't an injury but that he felt a tightness and was just taken off as a precaution, and might be OK for Fulham. Definitely worth keeping imo.

      1. Return Of Chamakh
        • 5 Years
        10 days, 11 hours ago

        Ah nice cheers for the heads up! Was going to wait for pressers but with him you never know ay as he can shut down all team news entirely sometimes!

    How’s this for a wildcard team please:

    Fabianski Hamer
    TAA Doherty Dunk AWB Schindler
    Sterling Son Fraser Anderson Richarlison
    Kane Aubameyang Wilson

    0.1 ITB

    What changes should I look at?

    Thanks.

    1. MH

      Looks great but wouldn't be expecting many clean sheets

      1. ddfc
        • 2 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Thanks, yeah defence lacking ‘premium’ but I mean CS seem to be a bit of a luxury this season atm

      10 days, 15 hours ago

      I have Rondon instead of Wilson and Sane instead of Sterling to upgrade a couple of defenders to Spurs and Arsenal, otherwise is identical to mine.

      1. ddfc
        • 2 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Yeah nice... defence is obviously the weak link but the fixtures seem to rotate really well throughout the squad

    3. Distinctly Average
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 14 hours ago

      I’d lose sterling for sane.

      Do you have money invested in Wilson and Fraser both? I’d choose just one, unless you bought both cheap.

      Beef up defence with the spare funds

    Bournemouth don’t have bad fixtures

    Come Saturday they will have wol, BRI, WAT, WHM in their next 7 games

    The game on Saturday - Liverpool have Napoli 3days later

    Seems really odd people criticising... they’re not West Ham/spurs/arsenal/Tottenham level, fixtures.... but they’re certainly not bad imo, and certainly not bad enough to warrant overlooking a good attack.

    1. BigRedDog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      LIV (H) - hard
      wol (a) - hard
      BRI (H) - easy
      spurs (A) - hard
      united (A) - hard

      Will be getting Fraser and Wilson when this is over

      1. BigRedDog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        If I had I'd be keeping though

      2. Holmes
        • 5 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        wolves and amn utd away isnt hard anymore 😮

      3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Need to look deeper than “easy/hard”

        LIV (H) - Napoli must win 3 days later - key defenders unavailable, just conceded to Burnley
        wol (a) - conceded 8 goals in last 4 home games, including Huddersfield
        BRI (H) - brighton usually solid, but nice home game
        spurs (A) - only kept one CS at home this season (Cardiff)
        united (A) - absolute circus of a team

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          *also an extra 25% rest time vs. Liverpool for Saturday game

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Keeping Fraser as rotating 5th mid. Got him at 5.6 and too good value long term to lose.

      1. danishdynamite
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Rotating with who?

        1. Jᴀʀᴠ oғ Tʜᴇ Gᴀʟ…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          10 days, 15 hours ago

          Rich for next 5 GW

      2. HVT
        • 8 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        I asked above but if you had to pick one Jarvis?

    3. HVT
      • 8 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Agree but if you had to pick one, who would you go?
      Wilson or Fraser?

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 2 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Wilson

      2. Numbuster
        • 2 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        if to play.. i think i go for wilson.. a forward

      3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Yeah Wilson

      4. Runaway
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        If you asked this a week ago I would say Wilson but after switching to 2 premium forwards (Kane+Laca/Auba), it makes sense to fill the 3rd FWD spot with a cheaper option like Jimenez, Rondon, Chica but there is no alternative to Fraser at that price bracket.

      5. HVT
        • 8 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Thanks lads

      6. danishdynamite
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        If you have both, keep Wilson. If you have none, but Wilson.

        1. danishdynamite
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          10 days, 15 hours ago

          Buy Wilson

  20. BigRedDog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    Murray, Arnie and Alonso to Lacazette, Perez/Chicha and Balbuena for -4? Or stop smoking billies

    1. Woody01
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Seems like a panic move getting rid of Alonso. Season keeper for me

    2. HVT
      • 8 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      No

    3. Where has all the rum gone?
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      stop smoking anything.

  21. elchilangles
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    would you rather play Alonso, Doherty or AWB this game week and who for 1st sub????

    1. Jamb0
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Alonso play, Doherty > AWB

      1. elchilangles
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        I'm torn between Alonso or Doherty, guaranteed Chelsea won't keep a clean sheet so it's down to how many attacking returns they might get

    2. frenchfries
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Im planning on playing Doherty and AWB. Alonso first sub.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 4 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Don't do that 🙂

  22. Jamb0
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    GTG?

    Fabianski
    Bennet, Robertson, Dunk
    Sane, David Silva, Alli, Richarlison
    Jimenez, Aubameyang (c), Kane (vc)

    Patricio, AWB, David Luiz, Hojberg

    1. frenchfries

  23. frenchfries
    • 2 Years

  25. Toby Lerone

    A) Arnie, alonso > laca, schindler
    B) arnie, Haz > laca, son
    C) arnie, Haz > Auba, Felipe Anderson

    Which one is better going forward?

    Cheers

  26. HVT
    • 8 Years
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    Does Ranieri favour Kamara (4.3)?
    Or is it a case of Cairney/Schurle replace him?

  27. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 4 Years
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    Play one
    A Diop ( CRY)
    B Doherty (new)

    Thanks

    1. HVT
      • 8 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      I think at this stage you have to play Doherty.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 4 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Thank you. Think I will too

    1. Ynwalfc

      Martial to F.Anderson and captain Kane

      1. EgyptianKing
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        10 days, 12 hours ago

        I think Martial will play saturday. No?

    2. Ynwalfc
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 12 hours ago

      Apparently the injury doesn’t look good, F.Anderson has form and fixtures

      1. EgyptianKing
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        10 days, 12 hours ago

        You have a source for that mate?

        I read this, this morning: https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/manchester-united-provide-anthony-martial-13694575

    Fabianski / Steele

    Alonso / TAA / Doherty / AWB / Schindler

    1. HVT

      Nice team, do you think Masuaku is somewhat nailed?

      1. fenixri
        • 2 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Well not sure, but for 4.3 and 3rd sub I think its worth it

  30. fridge

    Morning all

    I have my wildcard left but not sure it's worth using or holding? Ive used my FT already this week

    Patricio
    Alonso. Doherty. Robbo.
    Fanderson. Gudmunson. Sane. Fraser
    Jiminez. Kane. Auba

    Foster. AWB. Chilwell. Cairney.

    A) Stick
    B) Wildcard

    1. fenixri
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      I dont think its worth it you use yet. You are covered everywhere. Great team

    2. Legomané

      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 14 hours ago

      A)

      I’ve activated mine, because Arnie > Auba would’ve been a hit for me which seemed nonsensical if planning a GW17 WC. Also, few price rises twisted my arm last night...
