Richarlison back on the wing as Wolves’ budget FPL assets deliver again

We continue our look back at Gameweek 15 with a recap of three matches held on Wednesday evening.

We’ve got all the goals, assists, injury news, Fantasy talking points and relevant manager quotes from the matches at Molineux, Goodison Park and Craven Cottage.

Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1 Chelsea

  • Goals: Raul Jimenez (£6.0m), Diogo Jota (£5.9m) | Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.2m)
  • Assists: Morgan Gibbs-White (£4.3m),  Matt Doherty (£5.0m) | Eden Hazard (£11.0m)

Just as Bournemouth’s budget/mid-price assets are making it difficult to look elsewhere despite the downturn in their fixture difficulty, so too Wolves’ cut-price Fantasy options keep delivering in spite of some tricky matches.

Raul Jimenez (£6.0m) was on the scoresheet at Molineux on Wednesday evening and now has two goals and three assists since Wolves’ fixtures took a turn for the worse in Gameweek 11.

Matt Doherty (£5.0m), meanwhile, followed up his goal at Cardiff with an assist for Diogo Jota‘s (£5.9m) winner and registered as many penalty box touches as any other Wolves player last night.

Nuno Espirito Santo tweaked his formation from a 3-4-3 to a 3-4-1-2, with Jota playing alongside Jimenez up front and Morgan Gibbs-White (£4.3m) lining up behind the strike pair on his first ever Premier League start.

The decision looked like a savvy one when Gibbs-White teed up Jimenez for Wolves’ equaliser and it will be interesting to see if Santo sticks with both system and personnel going forward, with the 18-year-old midfielder available at such an attractive price in FPL.

Santo said of the teenage prospect:

He brought energy. He brought focus. He has a lot of things to improve on but together we are going to try and build something.

While Ruben Neves (£5.0m) will potentially return to the starting XI at Newcastle on Sunday after serving a one-match ban, it is unlikely the Portuguese midfielder would be deployed in such an advanced position and it would surely be Romain Saiss (£4.2m) who would make way upon his return.

Saiss had shifted from defence to central midfield last night to accommodate the excellent Ryan Bennett‘s (£4.2m) return at centre-back.

In truth, this was more of a backs-to-the-wall performance from Wolves than a free-flowing attacking display.

Jimenez nodded two half-chances over in the first half but apart from their two goals, the hosts didn’t force Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.5m) into another save.

Chelsea dominated the possession and chances, though their goal came courtesy of a huge slice of luck – Ruben Loftus-Cheek‘s (£5.2m) effort taking a wicked deflection on its way past Rui Patricio (£4.6m).

Eden Hazard (£11.0m) has suffered almost a million FPL sales since Gameweek 11 but the Belgian looked a threat at Molineux, without being at his scintillating best.

Hazard had an excellent chance to open the scoring early on when firing straight at Patricio and hit a couple of rasping efforts over the Wolves’ goalkeeper’s crossbar.

No player on show had more efforts on goal or created more chances than Hazard, who picked up a slightly fortunate assist for Loftus-Cheek’s effort but who should have collected another attacking return when Willian (£7.4m) wasted the Belgian winger’s chipped through ball.

Willian and Alvaro Morata (£8.7m) failed to impress, while Marcos Alonso‘s (£7.1m) owners may be getting a little jittery after another unconvincing display from the Chelsea left-back.

As excellent an FPL option as the attack-minded defender undoubtedly is, the worry from a Fantasy manager’s point of view is that his all-round performances have been well below-par in recent weeks, with his defensive positioning (a long-held criticism of the player) and final ball lacking.

Maurizio Sarri is renowned for his loyalty in his players but a continuation of this woeful form will surely see Emerson (£5.2m) handed a start before too long – something Alonso’s owners can ill-afford given his price tag and the Christmas period looming.

All is not well with Chelsea in general at the moment, with Sarri expressing concern about his players’ response after being pegged back to 1-1:

I think that we played very well for 55 minutes. After the first goal, at 1-1, it was an accident because we were in full control of the match. We were suddenly another team, without the right distances, our football, I don’t know why.

I am really very worried, not for the result but for the fact we didn’t react to the first goal. We didn’t react at all, so I am really very worried for this.

Wolves XI (3-4-1-2): Patricio; Bennett, Coady, Boly; Doherty, Moutinho, Saiss, Vinagre; Gibbs-White (Costa 72’); Jimenez (Dendoncker 81’), Jota (Cavaleiro 88’).

Chelsea XI (4-3-3): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Christensen, Alonso; Kante (Kovacic 77’), Fabregas, Loftus-Cheek; Hazard, Morata (Giroud 65’), Willian (Pedro 65’).

Everton 1-1 Newcastle United

  • Goals: Richarlison (£7.1m) | Salomon Rondon (£5.7m)
  • Assists: None | Jacob Murphy (£4.8m)

Back on the left flank and back among the goals.

Richarlison (£7.1m) ended a three-match run without an attacking return at Goodison Park on Wednesday evening and looked more of a goal threat than he has done over the last month, drifting in from the wing and registering more shots against the Magpies than he had done in the previous three Premier League fixtures combined.

The Brazilian midfielder swept home a loose ball following a corner-kick to level the scores up on 37 minutes and could have added to his tally, seeing two close-range efforts excellently blocked by Fabian Schar (£4.6m) early on and then sending an effort wide after the interval.

No FPL midfielder recorded more attempts on goal than Richarlison in Gameweek 15.

The bad news for those Fantasy managers who are hoping that the former Watford player is now afforded an extended run in the team on the left wing is that Cenk Tosun (£6.6m), the striker brought into the side to allow Richarlison to move back to the flank, produced another ineffective display up top, wasting the best of the Toffees’ chances when prodding straight at Martin Dubravka (£5.0m) from point-blank range just before half-time.

Bernard (£5.9m) and Theo Walcott (£6.3m) were handed a rest last night and would perhaps seem poised to reclaim their places in Marco Silva’s starting XI next Monday, given that Tosun and Ademola Lookman (£5.1m) didn’t particularly convince in their stead.

That would, of course, mean a return to the striker’s role for Richarlison for the visit of his former employers.

Silva discussed his team selection after full-time:

Since the first day I was here, Lookman has shown me every time [in training] and when he has come in during games that he deserved the chance to start.

Not because Theo Walcott or Bernard weren’t performing well – but because we had a game just three days ago, a tough, intense match. I made three changes and could have made more, because I thought in the second half some of the players were more tired than normal.

Lookman performed like I expected. He had some good moments – some others not so good, like the team. Cenk was the same and he worked hard for the team.

Owners of Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.5m) and Lucas Digne (£4.9m) endured a frustrating evening.

The Iceland midfielder was quiet for long stages of the game but should have emerged from this encounter with an attacking return, having looked poised to score from ten yards on 35 minutes only for a desperate lunge from the excellent Federico Fernandez (£4.4m) to deflect his goalbound shot wide.

Sigurdsson’s luck was out when a couple of deflections deprived him of an assist for Richarlison’s goal and his evening was summed up when he was hooked with 20 minutes to go, despite Everton chasing a winner.

Three days after Digne was deprived of a nine-point haul by a late Liverpool goal, the French left-back’s luck was again out as he saw Tosun and Sigurdsson waste those aforementioned “big chances” – both of which were created by the former Barcelona defender.

Digne also saw a deflected shot saved by Dubravka, one of only three Everton efforts that hit the target.

Digne’s Fantasy owners should at least be consoled by how dangerous the full-back looked going forward and a first attacking return since Gameweek 4 looks imminent based on his performances in recent weeks.

Andre Gomes (£5.4m) once again impressed in central midfield, though his classy contributions in the “double pivot” are unlikely to attract any Fantasy investment.

Newcastle produced a superb rearguard effort in gaining a point on Merseyside and it could be argued, having witnessed the capitulation against West Ham on Saturday, that they are more at ease playing on the back foot.

Benitez set his side up in a 5-4-1, with Jamaal Lascelles (£4.7m) back in central defence after an injury lay-off.

That Dubravka only had two saves to make said much about the performances of the defence in front of him, but the Slovakian goalkeeper oozed confidence in claiming a succession of crosses into the Magpies’ box.

Newcastle posed a threat on the counter-attack too and could have stolen all three points when Christian Atsu (£5.1m) twice fired straight at Jordan Pickford (£5.0m) when in excellent positions.

United’s goal indeed came from a breakaway, with Salomon Rondon (£5.7m) converting an excellent Jacob Murphy (£4.8m) cross.

Benitez praised the recalled Murphy and Atsu after the game:

It’s a pity because we have two or three situations with Atsu, one v one, that we didn’t find this final pass to make the difference. But, again, I will say that when you get a point against a good team, away from home, you have to be pleased.

Murphy and Atsu were really good because defending all the time and, after, attacking, you need the legs. The goal was a great counter-attack.

Fabian Schar (£4.6m) will be suspended for the visit of Wolves on Sunday after collecting his fifth yellow card in just six appearances.

Kenedy (£4.9m) missed out on Wednesday through injury, meanwhile.

Benitez said of the on-loan Chelsea midfielder:

He has a problem with his toe. He couldn’t put his boots on and he couldn’t train in the last couple of days.

Everton XI (4-2-3-1) Pickford; Coleman, Mina, Zouma, Digne; Gueye, Gomes; Lookman (Calvert-Lewin 78′), Sigurdsson (Walcott 69′), Richarlison; Tosun (Bernard 69′).

Newcastle United XI (5-4-1) Dubravka; Yedlin, Schar, Lascelles, Fernandez, Manquillo; Atsu, Diame, Sung-yeung, Murphy (Perez 64′); Rondon (Joselu 74′).

Fulham 1-1 Leicester City

  • Goals: Aboubakar Kamara (£4.3m) | James Maddison (£6.8m)
  • Assists: Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.6m) | Shinji Okazaki (£5.2m)

Fantasy interest had largely cooled in James Maddison (£6.8m) and Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.6m) towards the beginning of November but the pair have showcased their mid-price credentials in recent Gameweeks and both players emerged from this draw at Craven Cottage with attacking returns.

Maddison swept home a Shinji Okazaki (£5.2m) pass to level the scores up at 1-1 on 73 minutes and was Leicester’s main goal threat in the absence of the injured Jamie Vardy (£8.9m), registering more shots on goal and key passes than any of his team-mates.

The former Norwich City midfielder also supplied Leicester’s only “big chance”, which the ineffective Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.9m) spurned when clean through on goal.

While Maddison’s form has picked up, Leicester’s fixtures are about to get much tougher (three meetings with “big six” sides over the next four Gameweeks) and interest in the attacking midfielder would seem likely to remain cool for the time being.

Fulham, however, enjoy a fantastic run from Gameweeks 17 to 20 and Mitrovic surely enters the mid-price forward equation at this point, particularly given how secure his place looks in Claudio Ranieri’s starting XI.

The Serbian striker held the ball up admirably and linked well with the players around him, setting Aboubakar Kamara (£4.3m) on his way for the budget forward’s first Premier League strike.

No player had more efforts on goal than Mitrovic in this match, with one header creeping just wide and a goalbound strike being deflected off-target late in the game.

The Serbia international still sits on four yellow cards, however, and the possibility of him being cautioned again in the coming weeks may deter some investment over the festive period.

One player who again caught the eye from an attacking point of view was Callum Chambers (£4.2m), who was once more deployed “out of position” in central midfield and who regularly got forward to support the Fulham attack.

Chambers had four attempts on goal, including a free header from a Ryan Sessegnon (£6.0m) corner and a well-hit strike that Kasper Schmeichel (£5.0m) did brilliantly to tip away.

A clean sheet still eludes Fulham but there were some positive signs as Ranieri named the same back four for the third game in a row.

The Cottagers’ boss said of his backline:

I think the more times they play together, the movement will be together. I want to see one man, at the moment they are four men but I want to see only one man and slowly, slowly they understand my vision.

Injuries to Vardy and Johnny Evans (£4.8m) forced Claude Puel into making two of four changes to his starting XI, with Caglar Soyuncu (£4.9m) a little shaky on a rare start at centre-half.

Fulham XI (4-2-3-1): Sergio Rico; Christie (Ream 84′), Odoi, Mawson, Le Marchand (Bryan 77); Chambers, Seri; Kamara, Vietto (Cairney 45), Ryan Sessegnon; Mitrovic.

Leicester City XI (4-2-3-1): Schmeichel; Simpson (Okazaki 72′), Morgan, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Mendy (Iborra 72′), Ndidi; Diabate (Gray 55′), Maddison, Albrighton; Iheanacho.

    Martial is not injured, just pre-injured.

    Think I'll keep for Fulham.

    1. Pierce34
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      Probably selling myself, I'd love to keep for Fulham but I'm afraid he might be rested. I'm getting Son so one rotation worry is enough.

      1. Skull And Gnomes 9

        Yeh, thar Barca game is huge, no one's going to blame Poch fielding his "B" team.

    2. BoomBoomShacktheroom

      Thats what im thinking, Mourinho said that its not injury, so hope he will make it for Fulh, but he could safe him from worst injury and bench him. 50-50 i think

    4. FPLGraham

      Think he'll play?

      1. Skull And Gnomes 9
        • 1 Year

        I'm 70/30 he starts.

        1. FPLGraham

          Hmmm hope so. Getting a trigger finger here. Could easily see a rest 😐

          1. Skull And Gnomes 9

            I won't lie I'm the same, just trying to be half full. 🙂

            Hopefully get more news.

      No

      no

  3. Poison Apple

    Want to upgrade paterson next gw. Any ideas how to?

    Leno (4.0)
    Alonso robbo balb (schindler wanB)
    Sterling son snodgrass paterson (hogg)
    Kane auba laca

    A. Downgrade alonso
    B. Downgrade roboo
    C. Downgrade sterling to sane
    D. Downgrade son

    Not considering laca or auba downgrade unless they r injured, in the face of the upcoming 3 games.

    1. Girth Brooks
      • 4 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      Laca isn't starting. I get he scored but so did Jimenez for 5.0 less. If you want to make that move it's got to be one of the top three downgrade and Pat upgrade

      1. Typo
        • 5 Years
        6 days, 6 hours ago

        the math is way wrong there mate. 9.6 - 6.0 is 3.6 less.

        1. Girth Brooks
          • 4 Years
          6 days, 6 hours ago

          3.6 is still a heavy amount of change.

      2. Giroud Depardieu
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 6 hours ago

        Laca hasn't started any of the games vs the top 6 this year, and was injured the other week. Other than that, he starts.

        1. Poison Apple
          • 5 Years
          6 days, 6 hours ago

          Pretty much this. So im hoping to keep him for the next 3-4 before changing him out

  4. Jules Rimet
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    6 days, 6 hours ago

    Fabianski
    Alonso Robertson Dohert
    Sané Richarlison Fraser Snodgrass
    Kane Aubameyang Lacazette

    Too heavy attack?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      Yes. Sort out the midfield.

    2. maratus
      • 4 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      Mid looks weak

    3. SpagBol
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      I would go Aubameyang >> Wilson and Fraser/Snoddy >> Sterling if you can...

      Like it y not.U can always get sterling or a hazard in a 2transfer switch.Over next 3 arsenal double up can be a differential.Its all fine if it remains flexible

  5. Mc3
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Have the money to do Arnie -> Laca for free. No brainer?
    Still have Wildcard FYI

    Fab
    Robbo Alonso Digne
    Sane Sterling Fraser Rich
    Kun Arnie Jiminez

    Foster / Doherty WB Hojbjerg

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Good move with wc still to play

  6. maratus
    • 4 Years
    6 days, 6 hours ago

    Best max 4.4m MID for bench fodder? Currently on Gunnarsson

    1. BoomBoomShacktheroom
      • 7 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      Gibbs White?

      1. maratus
        • 4 Years
        6 days, 6 hours ago

        Doesnt seem nailed at all

        1. Nuno
          • 5 Years
          6 days, 6 hours ago

          MGW will probably get minutes most matches, with the occasional start, playing in an attacking position. He can be a gamechanger

    2. Pierce34
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      Yep, going with Gunnarsson too - don't expect much, but he's nailed and for some reason more exciting than Stephens (not that either of them are particularly exciting of course).

  8. Pierce34

    For the rest of the month and beyond - Doherty or Kolasinac?

    1. Girth Brooks
      • 4 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      Doherty guaranteed starts

    2. Differential (c)
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      Both v good, but Doherty, the guy's playing like a prime #FPL Alonso!

      1. maratus
        • 4 Years
        6 days, 6 hours ago

        Wont keep any CS tho. I would actually look some cleanies with good fixtures instead.

        1. Nuno
          • 5 Years
          6 days, 6 hours ago

          CS are on the horizon, unlucky to concede yesterday

        2. Differential (c)
          • 3 Years
          6 days, 6 hours ago

          Arsenal's defence isn't too good either imo. Wouldn't want to rely on them.

    3. Pierce34
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      Thanks both - considering going without Alonso now so I can take both of them...

      1. Nuno
        • 5 Years
        6 days, 6 hours ago

        Think I'm going to do the same

        1. maratus
          • 4 Years
          6 days, 6 hours ago

          I would go Bellerin only from Ars defenders. Kolasinac will lose his spot.

  9. Differential (c)
    • 3 Years
    6 days, 6 hours ago

    New #SaintsFC boss Ralph Hasenhüttl says he will closely monitor the Academy players and he won't be afraid to put them into his team if they are performing well enough.

    As per @BenDinnery

    Waiting for some absolute dirt cheap bench fodder if an academy player breaks through! 4.0/4.5m players galore!
    Yan Valery at 4.0 and Obafemi at 5.0 is on the radar!

    1. Ghost Gooner
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      Obafemi is terrible. I'm only interested in Armstrong

    2. maratus
      • 4 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      Valery would be nice cheap option. Seems to risky stm.

  10. Hman
    • 9 Years
    6 days, 6 hours ago

    Advise please guys:

    Current:

    Patrico | Fabianksi
    Alonso | Laporte | AWB | Schindler | Robertson
    Fraser | Billing | Salah | Hazard | Son
    Aguero | Arnie | Kamara

    to

    WC:
    Pat | Fab
    Laport | AWB | TAA | Doherty | Schindler
    Sterling | Sane | Mane | Fraser | McArthur
    Kane | Kamara | Laca

    Too kneejerky?

    1. HUMAN TRIPOD
      • 4 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      Think I'd downgrade Mane and upgrade Kamara

      Maybe something like Siggi & Mitro if you can afford?

  11. Giggs Boson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    6 days, 6 hours ago

    So Martial's not injured, just tightness. Maximum one game missed.

    I think he's worth keeping.

    1. Differential (c)
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      A pre-injury precaution. Definitely keep if I had him.

      1. FPLGraham
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 days, 6 hours ago

        What if you had the cash to go Martial -> Sterling this week? 😐

        1. Differential (c)
          • 3 Years
          6 days, 6 hours ago

          Hahaa, if only xD

          1. FPLGraham
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            6 days, 6 hours ago

            That's my dilemma! Was gonna use that cash to go Arnie -> Auba but I'm going off that plan now - too much money up front.

            Want Sterling anyway long term so maybe I just go for it...

    2. Ghost Gooner
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      If I had a ft I'd get rid. Already used mine for Arnie and will get rid of him asap

    3. fedolefan
      • 4 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      I foolishly got rid on a WC. Will bring him back after Pool.

    4. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      I want to keep but I can't afford to hold him if he's missing the Fulham game.

  12. Nuno
    • 5 Years
    6 days, 6 hours ago

    A. Laporte & Fabianski
    B. Ederson & Digne/Kolasinac

    1. MASTER ROSHI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      B - probably higher points potential as laporte isn't normally involved in attacking

  13. yer old da
    • 9 Years
    6 days, 6 hours ago

    Changing of the guard time in the season. Moving away from heavy investment in defence/midfield to heavy in attack with more balance elsewhere. Now’s the time to get on that train before it leaves the station.

    1. Differential (c)
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      My structure changed last week,cash flowing from def to mid. The template is shattered

      1. Pierce34
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 6 hours ago

        I'm tempted too, but it's just one week. After this week, City have Everton, Palace, Leicester and Southampton, while Chelsea have six great fixtures in a row - can see a few clean sheets there, with the premium defenders coming back in contention.

    2. Valar(Keith)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      I am about to do Ederson to Fabianski which will officially make TAA my most Expensive defender

        That being said.. It'll free up 1.3 million which I May use on Digne to Laporte next Week 🙂

    A) Alonso + Arnautovic > Kolasinac + Lacazette -4

    B) Salah + Arnautovic > Sterling + Lacazette -4

    1. HUMAN TRIPOD
      • 4 Years

      B for me

  15. heavymetal100
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    6 days, 6 hours ago

    Foster/Hart
    Laporte/Trippier/Alonso/Doherty/AWB
    Hazard/Sterling/Son/Fraser/Camarasa
    Arnie/Kane/Quaner

    1FT - 0.2ITB

    Was debating Arnie + Camarasa -> Anderson + 4.5

    Then in a few weeks get Richarlison

  16. JayBomb

    Bring in

    A Aba, 4.6 defender

    Or

    B Laca 6.1 defender

    Will have extra cash for a better defender if I go for B, but A is more nailed on to play each match

  17. SPorting
    • 7 Years
    6 days, 6 hours ago

    So it's:

    1) Arnie -> Wilso (joins Fraser in my team)

    2) Arnie -> Rondon (still looks wrong even after I typed it out)

    3) Alonso + Arnie -> AWB + Laca (-4)

    4) Salah + Arnie -> Any defender (ideas?) + Auba (-4)

    1. SPorting
      • 7 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      Urgh

    2. SPorting
      • 7 Years
      6 days, 6 hours ago

      4) Salah + Arnie -> 9.3 mid + Auba (-4)

    3. puhd

      3

      1. puhd

        6 days, 6 hours ago

        Or 4

  18. kuzser
    • 1 Year
    6 days, 6 hours ago

    Need some help with these 2
    1) Arnie-> Jimenez , Chicha, Wilson or Mitro? (Have fraser and not keen to double up on Bournemonth now)

    2) play Fraser or Camarasa? With Camarasa-if not playing against Southmapton at home, then when?

    1. Magic Bean Hunter
        6 days, 6 hours ago

        1. Mitro
        2. Im playing camarasa over fraser myself

        What y'all think of this WC Team?

        Fab/Button*
        VVD/Laporte/TAA*/Digne*/Bellerin*
        Sterling*/Sane*/Felipe Anderson/Fraser/Richarlison
        Mitrovic*/Kane/Jimenez

        * indicates incoming players.

        Bricking it about taking the plunge.

          Looks good

        3. maratus
          • 4 Years
          6 days, 6 hours ago

          To much money in bench

        4. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          6 days, 6 hours ago

          Your back 5 is very strong
          Your midfield is very good
          Your strikers are good.

          Who on earth are you going to bench?
          I'm sure that you will say "whoever has a poor fixture" but the gods have a nasty habit of introducing a few spanners in the works with that modus operandum..
          Good luck with your choices!

          1. ShaymenTID
              6 days, 6 hours ago

              Yeah, actually hadn't considered a benching headache.

              Current team is this...

              Fab/Foster
              VVD/Laporte/WBA/Bennett/Luiz
              Richarlison/Hazard/Salah/Fraser/Murphy
              Jimenez/Kane/Arnie,

              have 2FT, was planning on WC next week, but Arnie's injury has forced my hand. Was gonna try and get Laca in for Arnie, Salah out for a Man City mid, but I wanted Sterling, and that would require another transfer (-4); no way am I doing that before I WC a week later, so felt my hand was forced.

              What would you do?

          Thoughts :
          Wilson and Son for Martial and Arnautovic (-4)?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year

          If i have made a transfer early to accommodate price rises, will they be cancelled out if I decide to free hit this GW like how 2FT gets wiped out with a wildcard? Leaving me unable to get the player I have transferred in before price rises?

          1. Typo
            • 5 Years

            yes

          Will Martial start against Ful? Mourinho saying that it’s not an injury...

          1. puhd
            • 4 Years
            6 days, 6 hours ago

            He probably won’t play

            I suspect not but who knows? It’s Liverpool after Fulham. So I’ve sold now and will see how his he’s looking after those 2 games.

          Any Fulham mids worth considering? Schurrle maybe?

            Cairney at 4.8m? Just returning from injury so his minutes are being managed but he’s quality.

        12. Nicks93
          • 4 Years

          Did this last night and I know I’m gonna regret it

          Arnie+Hazard+Alonso OUT

          Aubameyang+Felipe Anderson+ Doherty IN

          (-8)

          🙁

            Can see why you did that but not sure it's worth a -98

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year

              Definitely not worth -98! Haha

              Have no money for Sterling...

          Playing WC next week so as a one week punt who would you recommend I replace Gomez/Arnie with??

          Kolasinac/Chicharito/Wilson/Rashford/Rondon

          My guts say Kolasinac can get an assist and a CS but what do you guys think?

          1. Typo
            • 5 Years
            6 days, 6 hours ago

            Depends on what else you can muster, but yea, I like Kolasinac !
