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.

    moved early last night, head went after a mediocre gw, did:

    alonso + arnie > laca + bellerin (-4)

    thoughts?

    1. Super Saints
      • 2 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      Wouldn't of bothered with Bell

      1. #FPLBhuna
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 days, 7 hours ago

        just the fixtures that tempted me

        take your point though

        hopefully fixtures can bring form

        1. farmerfat
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 days, 7 hours ago

          I think its a decent move if you are going to be patient. They will get points in the next few GW's. I took the more punty route and went Alonso> Kolasinac

    2. Holmes
      • 5 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      low chance of backfiring

  3. Athletic Nasherbo
    • 1 Year
    3 days, 8 hours ago

    Is my thinking correct here?

    Ederson
    Alonso Robertson Doherty Digne
    Sterling Sane Son Richarlison Fraser
    Kane(C)

    Button WB Success Arnautovic

    Arnautovic > Chicharito and bench Alonso?

    1. Super Saints
      • 2 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      I'd go Wilson personally but great squad

      1. Athletic Nasherbo
        • 1 Year
        3 days, 7 hours ago

        Thanks mate. Yes Wilson a great option... having Fraser makes me less inclined to get him though

    2. Jules Rimet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      Wilson essential

      1. Zladan
        • 1 Year
        3 days, 7 hours ago

        Nah

    3. Zladan
      • 1 Year
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      Nope. Don’t bench Alonso. City concede, Alonso could be involved.

      1. Athletic Nasherbo
        • 1 Year
        3 days, 7 hours ago

        Wouldn’t be surprised if he’s dropped. A Sane or Son no show could see him play anyway.

  4. Super Saints
    • 2 Years
    3 days, 8 hours ago

    Struggling, want Lacazette in for Arnie but don't want to lose Martial or Trippier but both are injured so has to be one of them?

    Who to sell?

    A. Martial
    B. Trippier

    1. J T
      • 1 Year
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      A

    2. Pegboy
      • 8 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      I don't know the severity of wither injury, but having said that, B. I don't trust our defence at the moment and Aurier has been playing as well as Trippier (which is to say badly)

    3. Zladan
      • 1 Year
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      A easily

    4. Becks
      • 1 Year
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      A

  5. b91jh
    • 1 Year
    3 days, 7 hours ago

    Which one?

    A) arnie to chicharito
    B) arnie to jiminez
    C) arnie and hazard to auba and fanderson/fraser/other below 7.4m (-4)
    D) arnie and hazard to kane and snodgrass/paterson (-4)

    1. Super Saints
      • 2 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      B

    2. Zladan
      • 1 Year
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      B

  6. Jellyfish
    • 6 Years
    3 days, 7 hours ago

    Digne or Bellerin?

    1. Super Saints
      • 2 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      Dig

    2. Rashers
      • 5 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      Digne.

      Just seen your WC team there Jellyfish and I think ours are exactly the same.

      Bar your 0.9 ITB

      1. Jellyfish
        • 6 Years
        3 days, 7 hours ago

        Good luck with it 😉

        1. Rashers
          • 5 Years
          3 days, 7 hours ago

          Ha ha. It looks good to be fair. We know what way this will go 😉

    3. Zladan
      • 1 Year
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      Moreno a better pick than those imo

      1. Rashers
        • 5 Years
        3 days, 7 hours ago

        Not with Robbo about

        1. Zladan
          • 1 Year
          3 days, 7 hours ago

          Well.. if Robbo is back, then not. Many LFC fans reckon he’ll just be saved for the important CL match.

          1. Jellyfish
            • 6 Years
            3 days, 7 hours ago

            Lol, your avatar is not convincing me 😉

            1. Zladan
              • 1 Year
              3 days, 7 hours ago

              It barely convinces me these days

      2. Jellyfish
        • 6 Years
        3 days, 7 hours ago

        As a short term option for Gomez and Robbo I assume?

        1. Zladan
          • 1 Year
          3 days, 7 hours ago

          Yeah. Bellerin is no use tbh.
          Digne fixture swing and Everton look off the boil defensively.

          1. Jellyfish
            • 6 Years
            3 days, 7 hours ago

            Yep not convinced by Arsenal defensive cover. Thinking Digne is good for this gw, he's one that can be swapped out with money in the bank if needed

            1. Zladan
              • 1 Year
              3 days, 7 hours ago

              In my head it was already the Chelsea fixture (when I offload Rich). Yea for this week it should be good.

  7. Bunji
    • 7 Years
    3 days, 7 hours ago

    A. Sterling + Snoddy
    B. Sane + Anderson + 0.2m

    1. altan8797
      • 2 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      A imo

    2. Pegboy
      • 8 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      B. Snodgrass is a flash in the pan.

      1. Jellyfish
        • 6 Years
        3 days, 7 hours ago

        Good point. He looked slow when he was on loan at Villa last season, so I can't see him sustaining his current form for long

  8. altan8797
    • 2 Years
    3 days, 7 hours ago

    A imo.

    1. altan8797
      • 2 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      failed reply

  9. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 days, 7 hours ago

    Play one of:

    A) Fraser (LIV)
    B) Son (lei)

    I do think there is a strong possibility Son will be benched this gameweek as his counter attacking style will be key to Spurs' gameplan in Barcelona.

    1. Athletic Nasherbo
      • 1 Year
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      Play Fraser yes

    2. altan8797
      • 2 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      he can play a 100 games without any rotation 😀 Besides that liverpool are playing in a different way this year so I don't think bournemouth will see enough of the ball which could disrupt their play as they love to play set attacks as well. At the end of the day, I would go with Son

    3. Pegboy
      • 8 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      Possible Son starts against Barca, but I'd have thought Lamela/Lucas more likely. Tough to predict though.

  10. dingo11
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 days, 7 hours ago

    Thinking of WC'ing mainly to change my team structure and put more into attack.

    Patricio.
    Robertson, Alonso, Laporte.
    Sane, Sterling, Felipe, Rich.
    Arnie, Mitro, Kane.
    Foster, Doherty, AWB, CHO.
    1ft, 0.0m ITB
    Options
    1. Arnie -> Wilson/Jimenez.

    2. WC.. Something like
    Fab, Hamer.
    TAA, Doherty, Kola, Cedric, AWB.
    Rich, Sane, Sterling, Felipe, GIbbs-White.
    Auba, Kane, Mitro.
    0.5m.
    Only 3/4 weeks left to WC so maybe now is the right time and try and get a jump on the Top 10k.

  11. Jules Rimet
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 days, 7 hours ago

    A) Sterling + Lacazette
    B) Son/Eriksen + Aubameyang

    1. dingo11
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Too close to call.

      I'd go B with Son possibly.

    Go easy on me, but can you see anyimproements on my WC team?

    Haz is my only regret?

    Flappy, Steel
    Alonso, Trent, Doch, WanB, Balb
    Sterl, Sane, Richy, Fraser, Torre
    Kane, Auba, Wilson

    I asked previously if possible to have Kane, Auba, Sterl, Sane & Haz without rubbish......

    1. Jules Rimet

      Looks good.

    2. Zladan

      On a WC, La(c) a better pick for this weekend. Auba possible bench duty.

    3. altan8797

      3 days, 7 hours ago

      La(C)a

    2. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      Wouldnt risk captain Laca with limited minutes usually?

        1. Zladan
          • 1 Year
          3 days, 7 hours ago

          He could come on. Scored loads off the bench this season.

    3. Zladan
      • 1 Year
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      Laca

  17. S.Kuqi
    • 6 Years
    3 days, 7 hours ago

    Probably asked thousand times.

    Which move to make?

    A) Salah & Arnie -> Sterling & Laca -4hit

    B) Arnie -> Wilson

    1. Jules Rimet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      A!

    Arnie out for the month. Is it worth taking the -4 for Perez in his place with the fixtures they have through until GW22?

    1. Hasselbaink Forever - Findi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      Who would play if you didn't take the hit?

    2. Bat Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      Possibly. But feel like minutes will be shared between Chica Perez Carroll

      1. Horlicks esq.
        • 9 Years
        3 days, 7 hours ago

        Yeah perhaps youre right.

    3. Typo
      • 5 Years

      Whats the price on perez?

    4. Horlicks esq.
      • 9 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      WB, Hojberg and D.Luiz on bench for next GW.

      Fab

      TAA / Digne / Doherty

      Sane / F.Anderson / Haz / Richarlison

      Laca / ARNIE / Kane (c)

      Perez is 6.2m

    5. pjomara
      • 8 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      It's even more serious than that, he might actually be out for the rest of the year!

    6. J T
      • 1 Year
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      No, wait and do it free. Surely you have someone else that can play?

  19. Bat Man
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 days, 7 hours ago

    For gw17, would you take a hit to do Salah and Billing to Sane and Son?

    1. Typo
      • 5 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      Only if you have sterling

      1. Bat Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 days, 7 hours ago

        Yes have him

  20. camarozz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Basically this is probably not the best week to get Sterling in??

    Save FT and a mini wc nxt week??

    1. drughi
      • 9 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      depends on who you'll get rid of

    2. Ronnie Hotdog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      I think he might do ok if he's up against Alonso & Luiz.

  21. Iceball
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Fab Hamer
    Alonso Robertson* Laporte Doherty AWB
    Salah Sane Richarlison Fraser Höjberg
    Kane Arnie* Jimenez
    1ft, 1.3 itb.
    A) Arnie to Mitro or Wilson and no hits?
    B) Get Auba by Salah downgrade for a hit

  22. yer old da

    WC team done - template has to be Sterling, Kane and Aubameyang plus 12.

    So here it is in all its glory:

    Fabianski, Hamer
    Laporte, TAA, Doherty, Digne, AWB
    Sterling, Sane, Richarlison, Fraser, Kayal
    Kane, Aubameyang, Jimenez

    Thoughts?

    1. yer old da
      • 9 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      2 best defenders from 2 best defences. Doherty a no-brainer. Then rotation of Digne/AWB. 2 City boys in midfield alongside Rich/Fraser. Kayal will never play. Then the 2 big boys up top alongside the value pick Jimenez.

      1. yer old da
        • 9 Years
        3 days, 7 hours ago

        Spurs/Arsenal home captaincy options for the next 6 weeks are insane - makes the big front two unarguable.

    2. Zladan
      • 1 Year
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      I like it. I went Laca over Auba though now that he’s back.

      Rich to be sold after Watford (H)?

    Lewis Cook tore his ACL and out for 9 months so sad 🙁

    1. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      Gosling also injured, so who will play?

  24. konrad.sygula95
    • 1 Year
    3 days, 7 hours ago

    Can you see any obvious adjustments to that team on a - 4 hit?

    Fabianski/Hamer
    TAA/Digne/Laporte/Dunk/Awb
    Salah/Sane/Siggy/F.Anderson/Gunnarson
    Kane/Wilson/King

    0.5itb

  25. Bad Butcher
    • 3 Years
    3 days, 7 hours ago

    WC time! GTG?

    Fab (Hamer)
    TAA Kola Doh (AWB Schindler)
    Ster Sane Richa Fanderson (Gunna)
    Kane Auba Wilson

  26. Nuno
    • 5 Years
    3 days, 7 hours ago

    Which of these wildcards look the better?

    Wildcard A
    Fabianski (Steele)
    Robertson Laporte TAA Doherty AWB
    Sterling Sane Richarlison Fraser MGW(4.4)
    Kane Aubameyang Jimenez

    Wildcard B
    Alisson (Steele)
    TAA Doherty Digne Pereira AWB
    Sterling Sane Richarlison Snodgrass Fraser
    Kane Aubameyang Jimenez

      A by a street

  27. TheBabyfacedAssassin
    • 8 Years
    3 days, 7 hours ago

    A) Arnie > Jimenez or Mitro?
    B) Arnie&Gunnarson > Kamara&FAnderson (-4)

    Mitro one yellow from suspension makes me wanna to B..

  28. wasp3000
    • 4 Years
    3 days, 7 hours ago

    Arnie is my issue. Don't like any FW around his price so think an Arsenal striker is the answer for a hit

    A) Arnie & Salah -->> Aubameyang & Eriksen (-4)
    or
    B) Arnie & Alonso -->> Lacazette & Kolasinac (-4)

  29. Eytexi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 days, 7 hours ago

    Kane (C) to Auba (C) for a hit?

    1. wasp3000
      • 4 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      Jesus no. Kane (c) v Bur the following week too. Keep Kane. Get an Arsenal striker some other way

      1. Eytexi

        Thanks, the captain poll put a crazy thought in my head, just had to check it was as insane as it first seemed haha

    2. MTPockets

  30. beetlejuice

    Mitro or Jimenez?

    Thanks!

    1. Strchld
      • 2 Years
      3 days, 7 hours ago

      Jimenez for me.
