Fixtures

Who has the best and worst FPL fixtures over Christmas and New Year?

Our regular “frisk” of the Premier League fixture list from a Fantasy perspective returns ahead of Gameweek 16, a set of matches that marks something of a shift after the lull of recent weeks.

In this slightly abridged feature (due to the swift turnaround in Gameweeks), we assess the top-flight clubs with the strongest and weakest runs of league games over the coming month and offer our thoughts on the stand-out Fantasy assets from each of the sides discussed.

Although our primary focus will be on a six-Gameweek lookahead and the matches over the festive period, we will scrutinise the long-term fixtures beyond that point where relevant.

The Strong

Tottenham Hotspur

Next six: lei, BUR, eve, BOU, WOL, car

And then: MUN, ful, WAT, NEW, LEI, bur

Possible turning point: che (Gameweek 28)

There is no question who has the best medium-to-long-term fixtures in the Premier League.

Spurs face only Manchester United of the “big six” between now and the end of February, with their match against Southampton on Wednesday kicking off an enticing run of matches for the Lilywhites.

Seven of Spurs’ next 11 fixtures are at home, too.

The Gameweek 17 match against Burnley leaps off the page and there will be no shortage of Fantasy managers placing the armband on Harry Kane (£12.5m) for the visit of the division’s worst defence for shots in the box, shots on target and big chances conceded.

Matches against Leicester and Wolves might prove to be tighter affairs, with those two clubs sitting in the top four for fewest big chances conceded in 2018/19.

Having started the season uncharacteristically well from a defensive perspective, Bournemouth have reverted to type in recent weeks: in the last four Gameweeks, no Premier League club has conceded more shots in the box.

All five of Spurs’ opponents from Gameweeks 21 to 25 sit in the bottom half of the table for big chances conceded, meanwhile.

For those backing Hugo Lloris (£5.4m) – the French goalkeeper likely being the only “nailed” route into the Spurs backline over the festive period – and co, matches against Burnley, Cardiff City and Wolves in the next half-dozen Gameweeks offer realistic chances of clean sheets, with those three sides sitting in the bottom half for shots in the box and big chances.

West Ham United

Next six: CRY, ful, WAT, sou, bur, BHA

Possible turning point: ARS (Gameweek 22)

The Hammers sit top of our Season Ticker for the next half-dozen Gameweeks and along with Spurs are the only Premier League club to avoid any of the “big six” before the FA Cup third round weekend.

One player who the east London club look set to be without for this period, and who many Fantasy managers would have pinned their hopes on over Christmas and New Year, is Marko Arnautovic (£7.1m), who picked up a hamstring injury in the 3-1 win over Cardiff City on Tuesday.

That could see the likes of Javier Hernandez and Lucas Perez (both £6.2m) feature more prominently for the Irons over the festive period, particularly with Manuel Pellegrini favouring a 4-4-2 in recent weeks.

Felipe Anderson‘s (£7.2m) ownership is on the rise too, which is understandable given that his impressive form is being coupled with some enticing fixtures: from Gameweeks 17-21, all five of the Hammers’ opponents are among the 11 worst clubs for big chances conceded.

Fantasy managers need only look at the “goals against” column in the Premier League table to see that West Ham’s next three opponents on the road sit in the bottom four for goals conceded in 2018/19.

West Ham clean sheets have been few and far between this season but five of the Irons’ next six opponents sit in the bottom half for shots in the box and attempts on target.

That Lukasz Fabianski (£4.5m) sits joint-fifth among the top-scoring FPL goalkeepers this season despite only registering two shut-outs hints at what he could achieve over the coming month if the Hammers’ opposition are as shot-shy as the statistics suggest.

Arsenal

Next six: HUD, sou, BUR, bha, liv, FUL

And then: whu

Possible turning point: CHE (Gameweek 23)

Arsenal’s last run of favourable fixtures from Gameweeks 3 to 10 saw the Gunners win seven and draw one, scoring 22 goals in the process.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.2m) and Alexandre Lacazette (£9.6m) racked up a combined 11 goals and six assists in those eight matches and the two premium forwards look set to be the most sought-after FPL assets from this Arsenal squad over the Christmas period.

A trip to Anfield in late-December is the Gunners’ only real unappealing remaining fixture of 2018, with matches against the bottom four clubs for shots in the box attempted – Huddersfield, Burnley, Brighton and Fulham – offering hope of an all-too-rare clean sheet for the likes of Hector Bellerin (£5.4m) and Sead Kolasinac (£4.9m).

At the other end of the pitch, Messrs Aubameyang and Lacazette can look forward to meetings against all three clubs who sit in the “relegation zone” for shots in the box conceded between now and New Year’s Day.

Five of their next six opponents are ranked tenth or below for shots on target and big chances conceded.

Manchester United

Next six: FUL, liv, car, HUD, BOU, new

Possible turning point: tot (Gameweek 22)

While we have marked the match against Spurs as a possible turning point for Jose Mourinho’s side, in reality, the Red Devils’ kind fixtures go well beyond that clash at Wembley and into the spring.

Whether any Fantasy managers would be willing to touch the United squad given the rollercoaster season they are embarking on is another matter, of course.

Mourinho’s innate ability to disharmonise a dressing room remains a concern, with Anthony Martial (£7.6m) – quite possibly the only United asset who currently warrants Fantasy managers’ interest – having been one of the players that the United boss allegedly described as being “without character” a few weeks ago.

Martial has seven goals in his last eight appearances and, if his hamstring injury proves to be not serious, he can look forward to meetings with five sides who sit in the bottom ten for shots in the box conceded over the next half-dozen Gameweeks.

A trip to Liverpool in Gameweek 17 is a little off-putting, but in Fulham, Cardiff and Newcastle the Red Devils face three of the four clubs who have conceded the most big chances this season.

Also consider:

Eden Hazard (£11.0m) has suffered a drop in FPL ownership and price over the last few weeks as he is jettisoned en masse for other premium options, but after the visit of Manchester City this weekend, Chelsea then have six fixtures (bha, LEI, wat, cry, SOU, NEW) that perhaps have been overlooked in the clamour for Spurs and Arsenal assets.

Brighton, Newcastle and Southampton all sit in the bottom six for shots in the box conceded.

Fulham‘s run of matches from Gameweeks 17 to 20 (WHU, new, WOL, HUD) is among the best in the division and even a Gameweek 21 trip to Arsenal – who have shipped 19 big chances at home this season – offers hope for those Fantasy managers planning to invest in Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.6m) over the festive period.

Huddersfield Town remain unfashionable in the Fantasy community but with five of their next seven fixtures (ars, NEW, SOU, mun, ful, BUR, car) against sides in the bottom eight for big chances conceded, they too warrant a mention in this section.

From a defensive perspective, four of the Terriers’ opponents sit in the bottom six for shots in the box attempted.

The Weak

Liverpool

Next six: bou, MUN, wol, NEW, ARS, mci

Possible turning point: bha (Gameweek 22)

With heavy hitters such as Kane and Aubameyang enjoying a fixture swing in Gameweeks 15 and 16, money will have to be generated from somewhere in order to finance any moves for one or both of the in-form premium pair.

The likes of Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) and Sadio Mane (£9.8m), then, might be deemed surplus to requirements over the Christmas period by a fair few FPL bosses with the Reds not appearing to have such a favourable run of matches ahead over the next six Gameweeks.

It should be said, though, that three of their next five opponents sit in the bottom ten for shots on target conceded, with Arsenal and Wolves two of just four sides who have not kept a clean sheet in the last six Gameweeks.

Newcastle, meanwhile, have allowed more big chances than any other Premier League club during this period.

The negative nature of Liverpool’s fixtures is perhaps more from a defensive perspective, with Bournemouth, Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City all in the top seven for goals scored this season.

The two Manchester clubs are the front-runners in the shots on target stakes, too.

Leicester City

Next six: TOT, cry, che, MCI, CAR, eve

Possible turning point: CAR (Gameweek 20)

Leicester’s favourable run of fixtures from Gameweeks 10-15 (in which they avoided any of the “big six”) is now well and truly over and the Foxes now have one of the worst medium-to-long-term schedules in the division.

While the game against Cardiff marks the start of a four-match respite in which they also face Wolves and Southampton, another trio of Champions League-chasing clubs lurk just around the corner in Gameweeks 24-26.

Three of their next four opponents (Crystal Palace, unsurprisingly, are the exception) sit in the top four for shots in the box attempted and top five for big chances and shots on target.

Attacking returns for the likes of Jamie Vardy (£8.9m) and James Maddison (£6.8m) might be thin on the ground, too – all of the Foxes’ next four opponents are among the nine meanest sides for big chances conceded.

Also Consider

Trips to Wolves, Spurs and Manchester United plus a home match against Liverpool, all of which happen before the turn of 2019, means that Bournemouth rank bottom on our Season Ticker for the remaining matches of the calendar year.

Three of those sides sit in the top six for fewest big chances conceded, but then again the Cherries’ have breached the defences of Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City in recent weeks.

While there are Fantasy assets available elsewhere with better fixtures, it will take a lot of persuading for Fantasy managers to part with Ryan Fraser (£6.2m) and/or Callum Wilson (£7.0m) – the two best-value players in their respective positions in FPL this season.

It remains to be seen if Ralph Hasenhuttl can shake Southampton from their slumber, but the incoming Saints manager could certainly have hoped for an easier Christmas schedule to start his reign: the south coast side facing the three highest-scoring teams in the Premier League in Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal in the next half-dozen Gameweeks.

Not one of the Saints’ FPL assets is owned by more than 5% of Fantasy managers and it would take a considerable “new manager bounce” for us to venture anywhere near their squad over Christmas and New Year.

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-C81RLp0Pts this is the Brighton game, gw5.
    Could not find the clip with Højbjergs long range shot against Tottenham last round.I think it would have gone in, if not Lloris got a finger on it.
    He also found gim self in a couple of good positions in that game.
    I am playing him over Chilwell ( Tottenham).

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Really ??
      He came from bench ahead of kamara for me 🙁
      But i got him just because of his prowess of long range shots !

    2. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      It was a wicked shot, I could tell you that! Was curling straight in if not for Lloris. Hojbjerg+Lemina should be the midfield partenrship going forward, so I think its not the worst decision.

    3. korbendallas82
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      He also Got one other chance from about 12 meters. Good shot, on keeper.

    B) Laporte (che)
    C) Chilwell (TOT)

    1. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Tough, one, but Laporte, probably.

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Luiz offers threat from set piece so him for me, just.

    3. g40steve

  5. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Does my bench order look correct, any changes?

    Alisson,
    TTA, Alonso, Doch,
    Hazard, Sané, Sterling, Fraser,
    Auba, Mitro, Wilson.

    Snodgrass, Vinagre, WanB, Foster

    1. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Snoddy over Fraser, tbh.

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        I left Snoddy first on bench, just in case Sané gets a rest

        1. Numbuster
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          yes.. this is good enough

  6. Differential (c)
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Team for the weekend. How's it looking?

    Fabianski
    Robertson Doherty Bennett
    Salah Hazard Son Richarlison
    Aubameyang(c) Lucas(vc) Success

    Hennessey Alonso Brooks AwB

    0 FT 1.1m ITB

    G2G?

    1. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Play Alonso instead of Success, owing to higher points ceiling.

      1. Differential (c)
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        You thinking that Alonso has higher chance to score/assist than Success?

    2. Hits from the Bong
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Alonso over Bennett

      1. Hits from the Bong
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        Oh and Success too. Also I wouldn’t be surprised if Lucas doesn’t start. Username definitely checks out.

    3. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Play Alonso over Sucsess

    4. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Good.
      Would play alonso for Bennett because you have Doherty playing

    5. maratus
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I would never field success. Perma spot in the end of the bench.

    6. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Cheers all! Decisions to make!

    7. Midlands Saint73
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      AWB over Bennet for me as more chance of attacking returns and also not putting all eggs in one basket.

  7. Erez Avni
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    I was the leader of my mini league from gw 1 and until last gw. I want to make big moves like salah & arnie out for auba & son. or alonso & arnie out for lacazet & balbuena. maybe I'm just frustrated...

    ederson
    bennet alonso taa (duffy wan)
    salah sane richa fraser (pereyra)

      Auba and son sounds gewst

      1. The Overthinker

  8. skodaole2
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Both played 90 mins in midweek, both difficult away fixtures, who would you start?

    A) Deeney (eve)
    B) Kamara (mun)

    1. danishdynamite
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Deemed. Nailed

      1. danishdynamite
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        *Deeney

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 9 months ago

      A

    3. skodaole2
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Seems to me that Kamara after Ranieri's arrival is also nailed, but having a player for Monday night game is important so A it is. Cheers both

  9. danishdynamite
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Morning all.

    I need a few 0.1’s ....... is there any sense in switching TAA to Lovren, the worlds best defender?

    (Btw I’m on a WC)

    1. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      There is a sense, with Gomez injured and all.
      But its an unnecesary risk, with the possibility that Matip will get games as well. We don't know who the prefered partnership is with VvD.

      1. danishdynamite
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        Good point with Matip.I’ll have to wait and see.

        Just means my preferred defence cost me a transfer down the line.

    2. Valar(Keith)
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Lovren hasn't been on the bench last few games.. When he is fit I am doubling up with TAA.. Think he has an issue though.

      1. Midlands Saint73
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        Oh he has issues for sure!

      That def seems weak.

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Shifting to 343 so not a huge problem.

    2. danishdynamite
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      B

    3. Sweetboi
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I'm doing B then Martial to Sane next week. I think B should work this week. Laca and Anderson vs Haz against City.

  11. Red Rock
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Is this worth a -8 or even a -4?

    Alonso, Hazard, Arnie -> Kolasinac, Son, Aubamayang

    I have thought about leaving Alonso and just doing:
    Hazard & Arnie -> Auba & Snodgrass or Laca & Son

    Alonso TAA Doherty Balbuena AWB
    Sterling Hazard Sane Richarlison Diangana
    Kane Arnie Jiminez

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Arni+alonso >> Laca+ Schindler/chambers ??

    2. Sweetboi
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I like Laca and Son, although Son could easily get rested this week (for the Barca game). I don't like the -8 personally.

      1. cigan
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        i had exact money so i pulled the trigger on Hazard & Arnautovic > Laca & Son for -4, then i remembered Son will probably get a rest this week

        still good moves for mid-long term and i got a decent bench so not too bothered

      2. cigan
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        left me with a SSSS midfield - Sane/Silva/Son/Shaqiri
        I obviously wish the last S was Sterling but likely to become Anderson/Richarlison in a week or 2

    3. Legomané
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I’m considering Sonny, but suspect he’ll be benched this W/e ahead of Barça. Probs gonna leave funds to get him next wk for Rich or Felipe

  12. Legomané
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights

    1 year, 9 months ago

    Narrowing my WC down and a few, mainly defensive slots to be resolved - any suggestions?

    [Fabianski 4.0]
    TAA Doherty AWB — [Davies Chambers]
    Sterling Sané Fraser — [Son Camarasa]
    Kane Jimenez — [Aubameyang]

    1. Legomané
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      1. Fabianski 4.0

      3. 2x rotating 4.5’s

      1. Differential (c)
        • 4 Years

        Not really a huge fan of set and forgets. Pick 3

      2. Chilavert
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        B. Fabianski is good for at least 6 weeks

        Kola, Spurs are better defensively, but don't wanna go down that lottery

        1. maratus
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          Well actually Monreal is back, so also Kolasinac starting spot is in doubt.

          1. Differential (c)
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 9 months ago

            Really? Well thats just great haha. Difficult choice there then. Would still pick Kola though for now,

            1. maratus

              Well Arsenal defence has been so awful. I expect them for trying 442 again.

        Kiko, cuz Fulham, i still don't rate.

      2. maratus

        1 year, 9 months ago

        Why Chambers? Plays for Fulham, no cleansheets incoming.
        Chambers being "OOP" . He plays defensive mid, not in attacking role at all, there are 0 attacking returns also.

      Not seen Davies in any teams. Checks price.
      You trust Fulham’s defence? Rather have Schindler.
      Like the Son pick. Wish I could fit him in.
      Rest good.

        Reckon there's a strong chance Davies will get the next 3 PL games, providing he starts this w/e...it's a risk though...

          5.6m just outside my price range. Will Foyth keep his place?

  13. EgyptianKing
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    I have the exact funds to do Martial out Mane in. Too risky for this GW, given Mane’s injury?

    Other possibility is just to do Holebas out // Bellerin or Kolasinac in

    Thoughts please? Cheers!

    1. Greek Flair

      Yeah I would say so, unless Klopp or the Liverpool Insider reveals something

      1. EgyptianKing
        • 2 Years

        At which time is Klopp’s presser?

    2. French Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Dont bring in Mane - high risk
      F.Andersson would be a good sub for Martial

      1. EgyptianKing
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        Martial should also play against Fulham, no?

        Thank you for the suggestion mate

  14. Halmari Tea

    anyone here know if Martial was spotted training yesterday ? De bruyne too? today is the last day of training before the games tomorrow. Will give a better idea if they are fit to play

    Most points cost in a single week? Just interested.

    I’m looking at going -12 and I hold 2 FT, to do a mini wildcard to setup me up for the whole of December.

    50 points ahead in cash mini league and not fussed about OR (although I am in top 10k

    1. French Gooner

      Never took over -8 in 4 seasons

    2. BigRedDog
      • 3 Years

      I think I've done a -16 in a BGW and it only paid off as I had a 15 pointer from Tomkins

    3. Valar(Keith)
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I haven't taken a hit all season 😎 . In fact in. 9 years I must have taken about 1 hit per season on Average. It depends on your style of play tbh

      1. Greek Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        I’ve already taken 7 haha. You’re right it is all about play styles

    5. Holmes

      I used to take -16/-12 occasionally, not anymore, sigh...

    6. maratus
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I did those -12 transfers when started playing FPL. I realized they are not the way to go. Now i take hits only if i have long term injuries and i need to sort them out.

    Gtg? Bench order? Captain?

    Patricio
    TAA / Zab / Bennett
    Sterling / Sane / Richarlison / F.Anderson
    Kane / Laca / Jimenez

      If West Ham and Wolves lose, your score will seriously suffer...And West Ham haven’t won 3 games in a row for about a hundred years. Don’t like double Wolves defence either.

  18. BigRedDog
    • 3 Years

    Just did this for -8. What do you think?

    Alonso, Arnautovic, Murray --> Kolasinac, Lacazette, Jimenez

    1. antis0cial
      • 4 Years

      A bit meh for me, be great if Kola and Laca keep starting but there could be games coming up where neither start

    1. Hits from the Bong
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Should be fine, as I said before; It’s not dangerous at all, it lasts about 30 seconds, and has no real side effects apart from a slight lowering of your vitamin b12 levels after massive longterm usage. This is probably why it’s popular among professional athletes as it doesn’t harm you in the way smoking or drinking does.

    2. Valar(Keith)
      • 11 Years

      The only reason they'd be benched is if they took hippy crack 2 hours before the game.. Even then they'd be flying and not Benched

    Kolasinac or Digne?

    1. Greek Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Both but if I had to choose, Digne. Less chance of rotation and takes some set pieces. Monreal could threaten Kola in the mid term

    2. Valar(Keith)
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I prefer security of starts over anytjing else.. Digne now and Kolasinac in a few gws if he looks nailed

    Hello all what do you think here :

    B) mitro in for arnie for free

  24. Original Pirate Material

    Bournemouth v Liverpool.

    Score predictions? I actually think it could be low scoring, early KO also.

      Arnie is priority 1, he will be out for month, you need to monitor the other injuries and pull the trigger when you get confirmation about those.

  27. FortunesAlwaysHiding

    Which pair would you pick for a draft league guys?

    Best forward under 7.8 other than Wilson

    1. Hazardous1983
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Mitrovic

  29. Holmes
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    To Laca or not to Laca! 😮

    This decision is pretty frustrating, have been long time since I had to think about transfer so much 😆

    1. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Who are your strikers at the moment?

      1. Holmes
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        Kane, Arnautovic, Jimenez

        1. DAVESAVES
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          If not Laca, then who to replace Arnie?

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Laca !

    3. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I’m going for Lacazette. Easy downgrade to lots of options if it doesn’t pan out.

      1. Holmes
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        with all spotlight on Kane and Auba at the moment, I felt avoiding Laca wont hurt much whereas having him may hurt other position.

        1. The 12th Man
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          That’s why I’m having all 3.

    4. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Averaging 7.5 points per 100 minutes but so are Mitro Jiminez and Wilson.
      I would take him over Auba but other choices far cheaper will get more gametime.
      Maybe I am convincing myself as I have no arsenal assets

    5. Midlands Saint73
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Had since day 1 and been happy. I would get though now due to the fixtures. If game time becomes an issue over next few then can downgrade and hopefully a midfielder emerges for Arsenal in that time to cover.

    6. The Winning Heighway
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      To Kopkloppers comment, I think it is unavoidable not to have Arsenal assets during the Festive period, for me Auba is a must and Torreira is a snip at £5m in midfield.

      1. JIMMY764
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        Torreria? Nah I'm happy with Felipe and Rich lol. Auba is not a must, Kane is already 10 points up on him since the debate started.

        1. dontyouknowimloko
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 9 months ago

          Not a great comparison though - Kane home SOT, Auba away vs mun...

          1. JIMMY764
            • 6 Years
            1 year, 9 months ago

            It is when Auba was the most transferred in player that gameweek. You can't just discard a gameweek lol.
