Mitrovic catches the eye as Wolves’ popular Fantasy assets blank

Gameweek 19 got off to a disappointing start for those Fantasy managers who had high hopes for Fulham and Wolves’ most-owned assets, who all emerged from this Boxing Day encounter in west London with nothing but appearance points.

It was a case of what might have been though, as the two mid-price forwards on show – Aleksandar Mitrovic and Raul Jimenez – peppered the opposition goal with a combined 14 shots without success.

FPL bosses hoping for a rare Wolves clean sheet were also left underwhelmed as Rui Patricio‘s goal was breached for the tenth match in the last 11 Gameweeks, just at the point where Nuno Espirito Santo’s troops had got on top of their hosts.

We’ll round up the key Fantasy talking points and manager quotes from the first of nine Premier League matches held on Wednesday.

Fulham 1-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers

  • Goals: Ryan Sessegnon (£6.0m) | Romain Saiss (£4.2m)
  • Assists: None

The 17.9% of FPL managers who own Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.7m) will have left been left scratching their heads as to how the Serbian striker posted a blank for the eighth time in ten Gameweeks, especially after his commanding display in the first half of this Boxing Day encounter.

Fulham were unquestionably the better team for the opening 45 minutes of this 1-1 draw and Mitrovic was central to everything the Cottagers did, linking up well with Andre Schurrle (£5.7m) and the impressive Aboubakar Kamara (£4.4m) in a fluid Fulham front three and dominating the trio of centre-backs around him.

Mitrovic had registered eight shots on goal in the last three Gameweeks and he almost matched that total in the first half of this Gameweek 19 curtain-raiser alone, chancing his arm on seven occasions and coming within inches of connecting with a Cyrus Christie (£4.2m) cross-shot on the half-hour mark.

The eclectic nature of Mitrovic’s chances underscores the Serbia international’s appeal when he is on-song; there are few FPL forwards who can score (or miss, as has become the case) from as many areas of the pitch as the ex-Newcastle United target man.

Never afraid to chance his arm from distance (two of his shots came from 25+ yards out), Mitrovic also dominated in the air and had a pair of headed opportunities in his eye-catching performance in the opening period.

The best of the Serb’s opportunities, however, fell at his feet when in the Wolves area. Producing some beautiful footwork on 40 minutes, Mitrovic sold two Wolves defenders with a feint and a shimmy before being denied by a point-blank Rui Patricio (£4.6m) save.

Mitrovic and his side were much quieter after the break but the Serbia international was to come within a whisker of a first Premier League goal since November when his deflected effort was cleared off the line by a backtracking Conor Coady (£4.5m) in the 89th minute.

It is difficult to make any kind of case for an FPL forward with two goals in his last 13 starts but Mitrovic could easily have a hat-trick here, being denied either by profligate finishing of his own, excellent defending or sheer bad luck.

The Serb at least avoided a caution in this match, meaning he can no longer pick up a one-match ban for collecting five yellow cards (the threshold raises to ten bookings after Gameweek 19).

Raul Jimenez (£6.2m) was not quite as prominent as Mitrovic in this fixture but posed Wolves’ only real threat for much of the match, firing a bicycle kick over after some superb control on his chest and connecting beautifully with a volley from a narrow angle that Sergio Rico (£4.4m) had to push away.

The Mexican striker also got on the end of two crosses from the left flank after the break without troubling the Fulham goal, going on to register six shots in total over the 90 minutes.

Wolves were well below-par before the break, with Santo hooking Adama Traore (£5.2m) at the interval in a change that he explained after full-time:

The left side was not working out, so we had to change and look for solutions. The team clearly needed more width to allow them to open the spaces inside.

We had to find solutions and I think we did better with the width on both sides with the wingers, Helder and Cav, and the team played well.

Santo also hinted at changes in Gameweek 20, with Wolves again in action on Saturday:

What we expect every time we choose the team or make a decision is that the team performs well. It doesn’t mean your place in the starting 11 is guaranteed. We have to look, now we have to rest, and prepare for the next game because it’s going to be very tough.

For sure we require another approach, in terms of what we decide, because this schedule is very tight. It’s a tough schedule, it’s very difficult for the players. Three days between games is very hard, especially with this kind of intensity, so we have to rest well.

One player who could be involved against Spurs at the weekend is Diogo Jota (£5.9m), who again missed out with a hamstring injury.

Santo said of the Portuguese midfielder:

Diogo is much better. First, he has to train 100 per cent.

Wolves were far from convincing at the back, meanwhile.

The days of a defensive double-up appear long gone and we are largely relying on attacking returns from Matt Doherty (£5.2m) et al at the moment, such has been their aversion to clean sheets in recent times.

Doherty was a considerable distance from his best in this encounter but still popped up with three penalty box touches and a shot on goal, while Jonny (£4.3m) came into the game gradually after the break on the opposite flank without seriously threatening an attacking return.

After 17 Gameweeks without a clean sheet, Fulham came within five minutes of consecutive shut-outs before Romain Saiss’s (£4.2m) scrambled winner.

Claudio Ranieri lined up in a 3-4-3 for the second successive match, only making one change, and this appears to be a formation he is keen on using going forward.

The Fulham boss said:

I think they’ve improved a lot. I think I’ve found a solution for this team with five at the back.

Of course, it’s not dogmatic. The team is much better, more solid, and more comfortable.

Of course, we need something more when we have the ball because when you’re bottom, it’s not so calm, you’re a little more anxious to do something good.

We have to continue this way. It’s the right way. It’s the second time we played in this shape and I’m very happy for this reason.

The fit-again Ryan Sessegnon (£6.2m) came off the bench to lash Fulham in front but Ranieri suggested the youngster still had much to do before he becomes a regular fixture in the first team:

I’m very pleased. He’s a very interesting young player. When he came on, the crowd and his teammates felt something could happen.

[But] he has to improve physically because when the opponents tackle, he has to be a little more powerful.

Fulham XI (3-4-3): Rico; Odoi, Mawson, Ream; Christie, Chambers, Seri (McDonald 82′), Bryan; Kamara (Cairney 73′), Mitrovic, Schurrle (Sessegnon 67′).

Wolves XI (3-4-1-2): Patricio; Bennett, Coady, Boly; Doherty, Moutinho, Saiss, Jonny (Vinagre 82′); Gibbs-White (Costa 63′); Jimenez, Adama (Cavaleiro 45′).

    What would u do here?
    1. Sterling + Sane + Mitro -> Salah + Haz + Kamara (-4. exact cash atm).
    2. Sterling -> Hazard and save the other FT.

    Thinking of just pulling the trigger on No. 1..
    No cash ITB + No City may seem brutal but then... a move from Auba or Kane to Aguero in a couple of weeks if need be can undo that.
    Salah will likely tear Arsenal apart especially as they are so open.

    Fabianski.
    Kola, Doherty, Digne.
    Rich, Sane, Sterling, Felipe.
    Mitro, Kane, Auba.
    Hamer, AWB, Gibbs-White, Bednarek.
    2ft, 1.4m ITB.
    90k now from 35k 2 GW's ago. It has been miserable.

      Wouldn't be too hastey to rid Man city assets. Haz looks good though so I'd do 2. You'll still have Sane then.

  2. Tshelby
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 24 days ago

    Kane and Billing -> Hazard and Jimenez?

      Don’t sell Kane

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year

      Nope.
      I'd sell Alonso & Auba before kane to free some cash.

      1. Tshelby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 24 days ago

        Why not Kane?

    3. LE GOD(C)-AMERICAN DYCHO-(1…
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Could you do Auba to Kamara and Billing to Hazard?

      1. Tshelby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 24 days ago

        I could do that but I think I want Auba over Kane

    4. AnyLaporteinastorm
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Lol no

    5. fattfattygavgav
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      I think Haz could outscore Kane and Jimenez will definitely outscore Billing so it's a yes from me.

  3. Pukki Party

    0.1 short of Kola to TAA, best downgrade?

    A) Alonso to Robbo
    B) Stephens to Gibbs-White
    C) Kiko to Bednarek
    D) Rashford, Stephens to Lingard, Kamara -4

    1. AnyLaporteinastorm

    4. noyb

      It would be good if you actually had Stephens in the first place , to transfer him out

  4. KUNingas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    WC draft. 0.0 ITB. Too light defence and attack?

    Fab, Speroni
    TAA, Digne, Doherty, AWB, Bednarek
    Salah, Hazard, Son, Pogba, Richarlison
    Kane, Ings, Kamara

    1. Pukki Party

      Looks great, wouldn't go without ManCity on WC myself

      1. KUNingas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Ditch Salah?

        1. Pukki Party
          • 2 Years

          No

    2. Amey

      Very good WC team IMO.

    3. LE GOD(C)-AMERICAN DYCHO-(1…

      Solid g2g

    4. BobbyDoesNotLook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Thinking about something similar for defence and really like yours. My problem is telling myself to get completely rid of Robbo who has been in my team from the beginning and always passing the eye test.

      1. KUNingas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 24 days ago

        Yeah have him also, thinking of replacing him with TAA

    5. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      City can bounce back but even if they do Guardiola can do a lot with his team so guessing on his team sheet would be even more troubling, Mahrez is prob the safe one next week but since on wc that is not the smartest investment.
      Going without before Southampton (which i think will be hard for City given that Saints plays like Klopp did) and then they have the tightest defence in the league. Spurs, United and Chelsea could be a shrewd investment. Son will leave but that won´t be a problem, just plan to either get Sané or KDB back or go down to say Fanderson/etc
      Your midfield is as juicy as it can get, i like our defence but could be times they all have bad fixtures, but combination of attacking potential (TAA, Doherty, Digne) and a bps magnet, all very cheap, could be worth it. Attack is fine since you have kane you can always go down to auba/kun etc. Ings is quite a favourite around here, i would be cautious as his injury record is what it is and he is in a pricepoint where it is difficult to find someone when he gets injured (it´s a matter of time). But for now he is fine.

  5. Vitamin C

    Sane to Pogba or save?

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years

      Make the move

    2. LE GOD(C)-AMERICAN DYCHO-(1…

      Save

    3. AnyLaporteinastorm

      Sot this week

      1. Nomar
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 24 days ago

        Southampton have improved since sacking Hughes, though, so they're not the easy 3 points merchants they were for the first 15 GWs of the season anymore.

    4. Ynwalfc
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Yes, he’s in form and Sane could be rested

  6. LE GOD(C)-AMERICAN DYCHO-(1…
    • 5 Years

    Play

    Kamara (HUDD)
    Or

    Thanks

    1. daveoafc77
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Kamara looks green but could cause Hudds problems, id side with him

      1. LE GOD(C)-AMERICAN DYCHO-(1…

    Hi all just curious, at this stage of the season, how much do you play tactically due to mini-league position (covering your rivals players etc) or continue to back your own judgement regardless of ownership?

    How does your thought process change if you are 50 in front or 50 behind?

    1. diesel001
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Forget tactics. Try to maximise points. If all your ML had Sterling and you had Hazard you would have killed it

    2. caldracula
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Don’t look at rivals, just try to improve overall rank.

    3. Saint Steve-O (@EliteFPL)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Put it this way, I've taken a 16pt hit last night to sort out my team, mainly because of th distance between myself and a couple of rivals

      1. Burger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 24 days ago

        Sounds crazy.

      2. Rhodes your boat
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 24 days ago

        That’s daft

  8. Wardinator
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 24 days ago

    Finally on my first wildcard, please help fill in these blanks...

    Ederson. Speroni.
    Alonso. Van Dijk. Trippier. WanB. XXX
    Hazard. Sané. Pogba. Richarlison. XXX
    XXX. XXX. XXX

    A) Peltier, Salah, Kamara, rashford, Ings
    B) Peltier, Alli, Auba, Ings, Kamara
    C) Digne, Camarasa, Kamara, Rashford, Kane
    D) Robertson, Camarasa, Kamara, Ings, Kane
    E) Peltier, Camarasa, Ings, Rashford, Kane

    1. The Greenback Boogie
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Don't think Alonso is worth the premium pricing. Would prefer Digne over him and Bednarek for the last spot. Don't like Ederson either. Fabianski or some other 4.5 gk could do. Kane, Auba as forwards. Last midfield spot could be Perreyra or Deulofeu.

    2. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      VVD > Arnold. Digne the last defender. Then C with Ings instead of Kamara.

  9. caldracula
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 24 days ago

    Two red arrows in a row and tripled my rank after removing Salah for Sané. Used the money to upgrade my bench which has left me benching some big points this week. Thinking of taking my first hit of the season and doing Alonso + Sané > Peltier + Salah, would leave me with:

    Fabianski
    Robertson Digne Periera
    Salah Hazard Pogba Richarlison
    Kane Mitrovic Rashford

    (Stek, Doherty, Billing, Peltier)

    With the fixture congestion over feel like this will give me a good enough bench and less of a earache ever week.

  10. diesel001
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 24 days ago

    The case fir going without Salah is simple. It lets you go with Alisson, VVD and Robertson in defence. If you want premiums then go with Hazard, Auba and Sterling/Kane.

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 24 days ago

      And without WC it’s a massive resurgence

  11. Tshelby
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 24 days ago

    So annoyed I left Digne on my second spot of the bench. Now probably everyone in my ML will buy him so I will not get any advantage of him by getting him first

    1. Dybala10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      It was a toss up between him and Snodgrass as first sub for Vertonghen for me. Unbelievable and it’s pushed down 10k spots.

      1. Tshelby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 24 days ago

        It has doubled my rank by not playing him

    2. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      First on my bench, played Doherty ahead of him... thought it was a toss up.

      What’s driving me nuts is it’s going to be the first time in over 4 GWs that I will not need my first sub.

  12. Clive The Ram
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 24 days ago

    Keen to add Pogba to my squad (for Anderson) but by which route:

    a) Ederson OUT 4.6M GK IN (also have Fabianski)
    b) Alonso OUT 6.0M DF IN (also have Robertson, Kolasnaic, Doherty, Digne)

    Any alternatives also welcome!

    1. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Ederson > Button

      1. Clive The Ram
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 24 days ago

        Cheers bud.

    2. Clive The Ram
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Or c) do Sane to Pogba, pocket the change and avoid a points hit?

    3. LSP
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 24 days ago

      A

    4. Rhodes your boat
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Is the move for free? I’d do A and get button and save cash for elsewhere

      1. Clive The Ram
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 24 days ago

        For a - 4pts hit. The alternative is I bin Sane for Pogba and pocket the difference.

        1. Rhodes your boat
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 24 days ago

          I’m considering getting rid of sane see below, I got martial last week but wish I’d got pogba now, I’d go A

          1. Clive The Ram
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 24 days ago

            Over the Sane option? I nearly pressed the button on an Alonso ejection in the middle of the night. Glad I held fire...

            1. Rhodes your boat
              • 3 Years
              9 months, 24 days ago

              Alonso has good fixtures I’d hold! I know how frustrating it is as an owner

          2. Clive The Ram
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 24 days ago

            I feel your pain. I got Lingard.

  13. Rhodes your boat
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 24 days ago

    A) save ft and do Ederson/ sane to lloris/haz
    B) do A this gw for -4 (exact cash)
    C) sane/auba to salah/Vardy for -4

    1. Rhodes your boat
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      A will be next gw

    2. Clive The Ram
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      If its the exact cash I would suspect its now or never... I can see expensive assets like Ederson and Sane, who aren't performing, dropping in value before too long.

      I'd be thinking either a) or c)

    3. NABIL - Gettin' Siggy …
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      A although not too sure on Lloris. Prefer a cheaper keeper

      1. Rhodes your boat
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 24 days ago

        Suggestions?

  14. Dohers
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 24 days ago

    Is it assumed that City will revert to their midfield of last season and Bernardo Silva will see limited game time from here? Own him in draft and want to make move to Sanchez before he's snapped up but we don't know for sure how City or United will line up atm so I'm nervous to pull trigger

    1. diesel001
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      I wouldn't assume anything - we don't know how Pep will react with this run of poor results.

  15. ChadW98
    • 3 Years

      Hope so

    2. Pieterke30

      Dont know.

      Would make his price drop instead of rise which I would love.

      But at the same time it would be a weird decision, and would raise a few eyebrows...

      1. Rhodes your boat
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 24 days ago

        Need to be consistent

        1. Pieterke30

          With?

          Happened before?

          1. Rhodes your boat
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 24 days ago

            Read the article, lanzini and Niasse got 2 game bans

    3. Saint Steve-O (@EliteFPL)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Yes. Although listening to radio, sounds as if its a non story thankfully

    4. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Nah. Won’t happen

    5. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Given the player and the opposition he wouldn't face, that'd be such a massive decision to make that would most certainly influence the title race...surely they'd shy away from making it.

      1. Rhodes your boat
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 24 days ago

        Shouldn’t be like that rules are rules (non salah owner) 😉

        1. Business Cat
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 24 days ago

          But if there's even a hint of a smidgen of doubt (which there certainly is...there was contact), they simply won't make the decision

      2. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 24 days ago

        Entertainment wise yes, but as sport they have to be consistent. It’s just which power will win this occasion.

    6. MSN
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      It was a soft penalty but a penalty nonetheless. I don't know how it would be classified as a dive.

  18. THFC4LIFE

    Morning all, rate my drunk transfers last night

    Sane and Jiminez > Son and Rashford for a hit

    1. Rhodes your boat
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Seen better seen worse

    2. NABIL - Gettin' Siggy …
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      not that bad

    3. LSP
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Definitely thought out prior to becoming drunk. I like it

  19. as33
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 24 days ago

    Whos gonna win tonight?

    1. Rhodes your boat
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Hopefully w.ham 3-0 balbuena hattrick and triple anderson assists, bit hopeful?

      1. Mo Mané Mo Problems
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 24 days ago

        Balbuena hat trick is unlikely. A one legged-Balbuena hat trick...?

    2. NABIL - Gettin' Siggy …
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      don't care as long as Snoddy get double digit score 😉

      1. King Kun Ta
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 24 days ago

        This

    3. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      West Ham obviously.
      3-0

    4. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      I'm hoping for a tidy 2-0 with a Fabs peno save from Senor Ings. Obscure goalscorers 🙂

      1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 24 days ago

        But I actually fancy Southampton to get something - probably a score draw

    5. UpAndAway
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Southampton will score.

    6. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Soton 3-1

      Ings brace Fab with 2 save points

    7. Rsforstar
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 24 days ago

      I hope soton as so many in my ml have fanderson and snoddy

    On wildcard brought in Pog, Digne and Ings for Lingers, Laporte and Mitrovic last night. Still have 1.0m to play with. Would you infact hold Mitrovic? I think I've had enough had one lonely assist since I replaced Ings!

    Also triple Man City Laporte/Silva/Aguero ha become zero and that worries me but I still have the funds for getting Silva if desired.

    Keeper advice? Had double BHA all season so far...

    Ryan
    Doherty Robbo DIGNE
    Salah Hazard POGBA Rich
    Kane Jimenez INGS

    Button WB Bennett HOGG

  21. PAL

    9 months, 24 days ago

    Your worst transfer out this season?

    Mine has to be selling Son on wildcard GW17. Got him for SOU & LEI as a short term punt and then went for Kane as my Spurs cover.

    I think that with 35 points in 3 gameweeks he is the most in-form player in FPL, or am I wrong?

    Oh, what could have been ...

    1. altan8797
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      sterling just before 21 point haul.
      salah just before 21 point haul.

      Switched one to other each time.

    2. Tufnell-Chimes
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      I got him in GW15. 57 points later....

    3. Jordan.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      no contest lacazette over aubameyang w/c gw9

    4. Nomar
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Got Son on my WC team 2 weeks ago then dropped him, so I could have Alonso, right at the deadline.

      Utter stupidity!

    5. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Salah GW14

      And Siggy could be one in the making but I got Pogba's haul so not too disappointed.

    6. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Laporte over Digne about 6 weeks ago looks rubbish now. Also should have perma-kept Salah.

  22. Woody01
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 24 days ago

    Is it worth the -8 HIT?

    Robertson + Torreira >>> TAA + Hazard

    Fabianski
    Robertson / Digne / Holebas / AWB
    Pogba / Anderson / Richarlison/ Sané
    Kane (C) / Wilson

    Patricio / Ings / Doherty / Torreira

    1. Rhodes your boat
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      No wouldn’t take out robbo season keeper

    2. fattfattygavgav
      • 3 Years

      Keep Robbo

    Better suggestions?

    1. fattfattygavgav
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 24 days ago

      Downgrade Laporte, upgrade Hojberg to play 3 at the back. Not many clean sheets this time of year.

  27. Bullet Eder

    Was Mat Ryan’s last game yesterday?

    1. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year

      yes, think it's on FFS twitter feed as well

  28. Jordan.

    1. fattfattygavgav

      Ok

  29. J.Litmanen
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 24 days ago

    Sterling/kola ---> Hazard/TAA for a hit? Would leave me with no city cover but would give me pool and Chelsea cover.
