Fixtures

Who has the best and worst upcoming FPL fixtures?

Our regular “frisk” of the Premier League fixture list from a Fantasy perspective returns for the first time in 2019.

In this feature, we assess the top-flight clubs with the strongest and weakest runs of league matches over the coming weeks 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, we will scrutinise the long-term fixtures beyond that point where relevant.

The Strong

Tottenham Hotspur

Next six: MUN, ful, WAT, NEW, LEI, bur

Possible turning point: che (Gameweek 28)

Spurs are just over halfway through their excellent sequence of fixtures that began in Gameweek 15.

A resurgent Manchester United might prove to be stiff opposition this Sunday but the Red Devils have still only kept three clean sheets all season (the shut-out against Newcastle United was their first under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer) and remain less than convincing at the back.

The underlying defensive stats are positive under Solskjaer: United rank second for fewest shots on target conceded and third for fewest big chances conceded since the Norwegian took charge.

The calibre of United’s last four opponents has to be taken into account though and the jury remains out on a backline that still includes Phil Jones (£5.1m), who has looked suspect alongside the more impressive Victor Lindelof (£4.8m).

Son Heung-min (£8.8m) exits for the Asian Cup after Gameweek 22 and it remains to be seen how his departure affects Spurs’ attacking output, but the Lilywhites unquestionably have some fine fixtures regardless – including a triple-header at home against Watford, Newcastle and Leicester City.

All six of their next opponents rank among the bottom 11 teams for shots in the box conceded over the last six Gameweeks, with Watford, Newcastle and Fulham in the bottom five for attempts on target allowed over that period.

Leicester’s record of seven big chances conceded over the last six Gameweeks is inferior to only three other teams, however.

No side has kept as many clean sheets as Spurs in the last six Gameweeks, a run that has included shut-outs against two teams they face in Gameweeks 26 and 27: Leicester and Burnley.

Those two sides plus Newcastle and Fulham rank in the bottom half of the table for shots on target in Gameweeks 16-21.

Leicester, Fulham and Newcastle also sit in the bottom four for fewest goals scored over this period.

Liverpool

Next six: bha, CRY, LEI, whu, BOU, mun

Possible turning point: mun (Gameweek 27)

One of only three teams who avoid a “big six” side in the next five Gameweeks (the others being Everton and Southampton: see below), Liverpool’s fixtures command attention for those Fantasy managers with or indeed without the likes of Mohamed Salah (£13.3m).

The likelihood of huge attacking returns in the next three Gameweeks might not be as probable as it seems, though: Brighton, Palace and Leicester rank in the top seven sides for fewest big chances conceded since the beginning of December (Gameweek 14 onwards).

Liverpool “only” scored a total of five goals against these three clubs in the respective reverse fixtures but the Reds are now a different proposition to the somewhat restrained team they were in the first month of the season, ranking top or joint-top for attempts on goal, shots in the box, big chances and indeed goals scored since the start of last month.

Jurgen Klopp’s team found the net on 11 occasions in the reverse fixtures of the matches in Gameweeks 25-27, though Manchester United will be a different prospect to the limp side that they faced in Jose Mourinho’s final game in charge.

Nevertheless, only Fulham have recorded fewer clean sheets than both the Red Devils and West Ham this season, while Bournemouth have shipped six more goals than any other team (22 in total) since the beginning of December – including three to Salah in Gameweek 16.

Liverpool’s remaining Premier League fixtures in January most definitely offer the possibility of further clean sheets (the Reds have 12 already in 2018/19), with Brighton, Palace and Leicester in the bottom six for biggest chances created over the last eight Gameweeks.

Everton

Next six: BOU, sou, hud, WOL, wat, MCI

Possible turning point: MCI (Gameweek 27)

Everton’s lack of clean sheets of late – not a single shut-out in the last eight Gameweeks – is the source of much discussion in the Fantasy community regarding the appeal of Lucas Digne (£5.2m) and the Toffees’ next five matches could very well represent the French left-back’s swansong in our Fantasy squads, with Everton’s fixtures stiffening from Gameweek 27 onwards.

Huddersfield’s struggles for goals this season (13 in 21 league fixtures) offers a glimmer of hope for a rare clean sheet in Gameweek 24, while Bournemouth, Southampton and Wolves sit in the bottom half of the table for shots in the box over the last eight Gameweeks.

Five of their next six opponents (the Terriers being the predictable exception) are all scoring at a rate better than a goal a game since the start of December, however, while Everton rank second-bottom for big chances conceded during that time.

For those who own Richarlison (£6.9m) and co, however, there are encouraging omens.

Everton have scored against all of their next six opponents already this season, including Manchester City at the Etihad.

Five of their next half-dozen opponents (including Pep Guardiola’s side, who like Everton are without a clean sheet since November) also rank in the bottom half of the table for big chances conceded in the last eight Gameweeks.

Southampton

Next six: lei, EVE, CRY, bur, CAR, ars

And then: FUL

Possible turning point: mun (Gameweek 29)

Southampton’s upturn in fixtures prompted our recent analysis of two of their budget midfielders, with the Saints having the “easiest” run of matches over the next seven Gameweeks according to our Season Ticker.

In Gameweeks 25-28, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s troops face four of the six teams that have allowed the most shots on target in 2018/19. Arsenal are one of those sides, who the Saints put three goals past in December.

Cardiff City beat the south coast side 1-0 in Hasenhuttl’s first match in charge and the two teams will meet again at St. Mary’s in Gameweek 26.

The visit of Everton in Gameweek 23 is another attractive proposition from an attacking perspective: the Toffees have recorded no clean sheets in the last eight Gameweeks and have allowed the second-highest number of big chances (23) over that period.

Leicester and Palace’s defences will surely prove less obliging, with those two clubs ranking in the top three for fewest shots on target conceded over the last eight Gameweeks. The Foxes and Roy Hodgson’s side have registered a combined seven clean sheets during that period.

For those interested in Jan Bednarek (£3.9m) and co, the Saints face four teams between now and the end of February who have scored at a rate of a goal per game or less over the last eight Gameweeks: Leicester, Burnley, Cardiff and Fulham.

Five of the Saints’ next seven opponents also rank in the bottom half of the table for shots on target from Gameweek 14 onwards.

Also Consider

Cardiff City (HUD, new, ars, BOU, sou, WAT) aren’t a particularly popular team from a Fantasy perspective, with not one of their outfield players being owned by more than 4% of FPL managers.

There is no denying that the Bluebirds’ fixtures are among the best in the division over the next six Gameweeks, however, with only a trip to Arsenal – who themselves are unconvincing at the back – to be concerned about in the medium term.

Indeed, the Bluebirds’ appealing matches continue well into March and it is not until Chelsea visit South Wales in Gameweek 32 that Neil Warnock’s side have to really worry about a daunting fixture again.

Cardiff have largely held their own against mid-table/relegation fodder this season and only three clubs outside the “big six” have kept more clean sheets than the Bluebirds (five) in 2018/19.

Neil Warnock’s troops have, in fact, only conceded 16 goals in 14 matches against sides currently ranked seventh or below.

Their next two opponents, Huddersfield and Newcastle, have scored the joint-fewest number of goals in the Premier League this season.

Due to the reversal of their fixture against Spurs back in September, Watford (cry, BUR, tot, bha, EVE, car) only enjoy two home matches in the next seven Gameweeks.

The Hornets rank second for “defence” over the next half-dozen matches, though, taking on four of the sides that lie in the bottom six for shots on target in 2018/19.

Those same four teams – Cardiff, Palace, Brighton and Burnley – sit in the bottom half of the table for goals scored this campaign.

The defences Watford face might be tougher nuts to crack, however, with five of their next six opponents (the exception being Everton) among the ten meanest backlines for big chances conceded in the last eight Gameweeks.

The Weak

Leicester City

Next six: SOU, wol, liv, MUN, tot, CRY

Possible turning point: CRY (Gameweek 27)

A Gameweek 22 encounter with Southampton is the calm before the storm for Claude Puel’s side, with trips to Wolves, Liverpool and Spurs sandwiching the visit of Manchester United before the Foxes’ fixtures turn for the better in Gameweek 27.

Leicester are a difficult team to fathom of late and recent evidence suggests those tricky-looking upcoming fixtures aren’t a formality, with the Foxes having defeated Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton over the last four Gameweeks.

This is the same team, of course, that lost at home to Cardiff and were then dumped out of the FA Cup by League Two club Newport County on Sunday.

Leicester’s defensive solidity – only Chelsea have conceded fewer shots on target in the last eight Gameweeks – will be tested by their matches in Gameweeks 24-26, with Liverpool, Manchester United and Spurs having each scored the joint-highest number of goals (23) since the start of last month.

Gameweek 27 looks a great time to invest in Leicester assets, however, with the Foxes avoiding any of the “big six” in their subsequent nine fixtures.

Bournemouth

Next six: eve, WHU, CHE, car, liv, WOL

And then: ars, MCI

Possible turning point: hud (Gameweek 30)

While Bournemouth have taken some pummelings in December, many Fantasy managers retain a soft spot for the Cherries and their assets.

Ryan Fraser (£6.1m) and Callum Wilson (£6.7m) remain the best-value FPL players in their respective positions and many Fantasy bosses have stuck with their Bournemouth players through the winter months in spite of a tail-off in form and fixtures for Eddie Howe’s side.

Goals for both players in the 3-3 draw with Watford would have rekindled interest but there is little let-up in Bournemouth’s tough schedule, as the Cherries sit bottom of our Season Ticker for the next eight Gameweeks.

There won’t be much interest in Bournemouth’s defensive assets (the Cherries have conceded 22 goals since the start of December, six more than any other club) but visits to Everton and Cardiff at least offer the hope of an attacking return for Fraser and Wilson, with those two sides also sitting in the bottom three for goals conceded over the last eight Gameweeks.

West Ham, meanwhile, have recorded only three clean sheets all season and rank 17th for shots on target and big chances conceded in 2018/19.

Also Consider

Top of our Season Ticker for the second quarter of the season but bottom for the next four Gameweeks, Newcastle United (che, CAR, MCI, tot, wol, HUD) are the first in a trio of unfashionable clubs (from an FPL point of view, we hasten to add) whose limited appeal is further diminished by their upcoming schedule.

No side has scored fewer goals than the Magpies since the beginning of December and matches against Chelsea, Manchester City and Spurs in Gameweeks 22, 24 and 25 make for grim reading.

Only two sides have allowed fewer big chances than Wolves in the last eight Gameweeks, meanwhile, which doesn’t bode well for the Magpies’ prospects at Molineux either.

Home games against Cardiff and Huddersfield could make or break Newcastle’s season and the prospects of clean sheets all round in those two fixtures look strong: the Bluebirds and David Wagner’s side sit in the bottom three with the Tyneside outfit for shots on target from Gameweek 14 onwards.

The fact that back-up goalkeeper Ben Hamer (£4.0m) and the now-departed Collin Quaner (£4.3m) are Huddersfield Town‘s (car, MCI, EVE, che, ARS, new) two most popular FPL assets says all there is to know about the Terriers’ stock in the FPL community, so we won’t waste time discussing why they are ones to avoid. Suffice to say, Wagner’s troops have lost their last nine fixtures in all competitions.

As with Newcastle, the Terriers face two must-win games either side of a tetralogy of daunting fixtures and it is the away matches against Neil Warnock and Rafael Benitez’s sides that represent their best chance of any sort of Fantasy returns over the coming half-dozen Gameweeks.

It is perhaps unfair to lump Brighton and Hove Albion (LIV, mun, ful, WAT, BUR, che) in with the two aforementioned relegation-threatened clubs but like Newcastle, the Seagulls’ kind autumn schedule has given way to an altogether more testing succession of fixtures.

In their coming half-dozen league matches, Chris Hughton’s side face five of the seven clubs who have created the most big chances since the start of December (Fulham being the exception).

While FPL managers are unlikely to be punting on a member of Brighton’s backline during this period, the Seagulls could make life tricky for the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea between now and the end of February: from Gameweek 14 onwards, only Maurizio Sarri’s side have conceded fewer big chances than the Sussex club.

      Cant do much. maybe go for some cash generating move like Fabianski to Speroni or Schindler to Bednarek. That will give cash for Digne/Holebas to Trent which can be done next week.

      1. Lazaretti
        • 1 Year

        Schindler to Bednarek is good advise imo

    Would you sell Alonso for Robbo next week and double up on Pool defence?
    (Have TAA)

    Appreciate your thoughts! 🙂

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Yep

    2. Amey
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Yes

    3. Lazaretti
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 12 days ago

      If no pressing (money)issues I would keep Alonso.

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Money is not issue but Robbo just seems much more consistent than Alonso and has much better fixtures.

        1. Lazaretti
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 12 days ago

          Personally I am keeping Alonso for few more GW but I can understand transfering him to Ropertson.

  4. Bavarian
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Play AWB (Have Guaita) OR Jimenez?

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      personally I'm playing Wan Bissaka

      but I have been doing many wrong things recently, so you can go for Jimenez 😛

      1. Bavarian
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 12 days ago

        lol thanks mate

    2. wernerhedgehog
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 12 days ago

      I'd play Jiminez over AWB.

      Noticed Watford seem to perform better away, Top 5 away xG.

    3. Lazaretti
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Its 50/60 both will get 2 points most likely.

    4. Bavarian
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 12 days ago

      I'll spread the risk then and play Jimenez since I have Guaita goalkeeping...

  5. cescpistols111

    Kepa
    Robbo Digne Pereira

    Liverpool to not have any blanks, Man City and Everton to blank in GW27, Am I right?

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Yes that’s right.

      Pool could have a blank in GW33 if Soton manage to reach FA Cup SFs.

      One of Spurs/Cheslea match will also be a blank in GW27.

      1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Thanks, Alisson looks like a good pick for current WCers.

        With 4 players from Man CIty and Everton, I hope their DGW will be before GW27 😮

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 12 days ago

          Is that possible?

          1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 12 days ago

            I dont have a clue about this stuff to be honest, have seen few mentioned that DGW25 is possible.

            1. Kopkloppers
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              4 months, 12 days ago

              Nor do I.
              All I know is the guesswork from prior years tends to be inaccurate; especially when the rearrangement dates are close to the initial slot.

        2. Amsterhammer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Has to be 27 I think. That's the league cup final weekend.

    2. Hotdogs for Tea

      They could have a double in GW25 though 😉

      1. Amey
        4 months, 12 days ago

        I'd look like stupid in that scenario 😀
        As I am currently ignoring the urge to get a City player.

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 12 days ago

          If the teams don’t have a replay in the fourth round then it is a very strong possibility ... well ... at least as strong as any other option 🙂

          I think it is sensible to accumulate 2 transfers and roll them each week to be able to react to the situation without the need for hits etc

    Everton Citeh Burnley Spurs (If Spurs hold off Chelsea)
    Teams not in GW27
    Time to plan max 3 outfield players in these teams on 24 Feb.
    Start with sure things (Everton Citeh)
    Who do I want at this point of the season?
    Digne is the only likely contender for Everton so he can go.
    Citeh/Spurs probably 1 player each.
    I have no Citeh cover atm and 2 Spurs. (Also Haz)
    Logic says
    A Son to Sane next week or
    B Son to Camarasa and Ings to Kun (exact money) or
    C Ignore and move Fab to Guita (I have Patricio)

    1. Hotdogs for Tea

      Absolutely no idea what all that means lol 😉

        4 months, 12 days ago

        The League cup final Will be played during the 27. gameweek. City won 9-0 and will most likely play the final, so City and Everton will not play premier league that week.
        Then depending who wins the other semi-final, either Spurs/Burnley or Chelsea/Brighton Will also not play premier league that week. So owning to many players of those teams will hurt your FPL team during that gameweek.

    3. F_Ivanovic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      No rush for me. Can get rid of 3 players in 2 GWs if I save a transfer. Digne, Richarlison and Hazard/Kane out and Periera, Maddison and Aubamayang in.

    Ramsey will join Juventus on a free transfer and get £140k a week

    To replace him Arsenal will probably have to pay £20 -£30 million and pay £100k - £150k a week ... or go big and buy a £50 mill player

    Not sure this is the best business ever ?

    1. Amey
      4 months, 12 days ago

      I like Rambo as a player.
      But I think more than the cost I think Arsenal is looking to set an example here as they have been exploited by player's before ( Ozil ).
      Every player would start to run contract down for higher salary.
      Just an opinion !

    2. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Depends on the age of the replacement.
      50 mil at 23 could be 80 mil 2 years later.
      Rambo I am not sure about value at his age.
      If he signed for Arsenal There would be transfer value but depreciating over the next 3 to 4 years to nothing.

      1. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Auba £180k a week and £56 mill
        Laca £140k a week a £42.5 mill
        Mhki £120k a week and £Sánchez
        Özil £300k a week and £40 mill

        They could have kept Rambo at £140k a week for free ... 🙂

          I really don't think this is the case. I believe he was demanding alot more than 140 at Arsenal.

          1. Hotdogs for Tea
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 12 days ago

            I think he was, maybe £200k, but if you don’t ask you don’t get ... ultimately he accepted £140k a week to up-root his young family and go to Italy ... I am sure there was a deal to be done

      2. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Thing is though the minute he signs he immediately has a ‘market value’ of £20 or £30 mill ? again.

        I think it is a lot to do with Arsenal proving a point and not wanting to be held to ransom, but at the same time they seem to be cutting off their nose to spite their face at the cost of £20+ mill

      Digne to TAA - not worth doubling Everton defence. And roll with 2nd transfer. Snodgrass and Martial players who I would swap but not sure how ou could get City or Pool player by changing one of those two. Snodgrass to Camarasa / Puncheon and upgrade Martial?

      Think you need to start moving some money around pal.

      Your team is top heavy and heavily reliant on only a few players to perform

      A midfield of Salah, Pogba & 3 cheapies will probably hurt you.

      You can save money on downgrading one of your forwards, your keeper and Alonso to Trent.

        Thanks guys for the input. I will probably do snodgrass to camassara and roll the othe FT. Next week based on performance I will either get city or Liverpool players for auba and martial.
        I don’t like TAA for this week as lovren, matip and Gomes are all injured so there is a possibility of a makeshift defense and Brighton will score 1.

    2FT 0,2 itb. Four players waiting transfer. Lovren, Lowe, Snodgrass and Ings

    Fabianski - Button
    Alonso - Lovren - Doherty - Lowe - AWB
    Salah - Hazard - Pogba - Richarlison - Snodgrass
    Rashford - Kane - Ings

    0.1 short of straight swap from Lovren to TAA. Of course need to wait news from Lovren most likely out this week.

    A) Lowe to Bednarek and Lovren to TAA
    B) Snodgrass to Camarasa and Lovren to TAA
    C) A or B plus Ings to Barnes (-4)
    D) something else

    Some city cover would be great. Hazard to CHO and Ings to Aguero. Any suggestions? TIA

    Hi, do i need any changes: Fab/Hart
    Robbo, Digne, Jonny, WB, Zaba
    Salah, Hazard, Anderson, Lingard, Camarasa
    Kane, Wilson, Jaminez?

      2. as33

        at the moment im 1st in my ML, should i risk and do Kane>Kun or just dont risk and Lingard>Rischarlison? Thinking that Kun will score

    Chances of Kamara starting against Burnley?

        Good math

        1. Big Test Icles
          • 5 Years

          3 of 9 is 33% just saying

    Any input on this dull decision really appreciated-

    A. Hamer to 4.2 CPL goalie, really just to play this week
    B. Save, play Patricio this week back a double Wolves defense with ok fixtures coming up
    C. Patricio to someone
    D. Anything way more interesting!

    Patricio
    TAA Digne Doherty Wan B
    Salah Hazard Fraser Pogba
    Aguero Auba

    Hamer Hojeburg Sucess Bednarek 1FT 0.2 ITB ( yes my bench sucks)

      How many transfers you got? I’d probably save the ft and hope for Rui save points.

  15. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    So Button will probably be nailed for another 4 matches until Ryan back from ASian championship.

    Still worth bringing Button in, or too late?

    1. Joggers Nipple
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      if 2 fts and nothing urgent why not? That said BRI play Liv and MANU next 2 so not sure you would actually play him?

      1. F_Ivanovic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Why not? Because then you have to spend a FT getting rid.

        1. Joggers Nipple
          • 9 Years

          well done

    2. n-doggg
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      I wouldn’t bother

  16. n-doggg
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Would you save FT or make a change? 0.3 itb

    Rui, hamer
    Alonso, TAA, AWB, kiko, Bennett
    Salah, Felipe, richarlison, Fraser, Camarasa
    Kane, Aubameyang, rashford

    Holding atm

    Transfer madness:

    (1) if Chelsea sign Callum Wilson he becomes instantly extremely more valuable and interesting - no way Bournemouth sells tho
    (2) Higuain is another Morata, will cost 9.5M but score like a Ings and Rondon
    (3) Tarkowski would be awesome at Liverpool, probably win a position or really push Gomez

    1. n-doggg
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      I don’t think any would start, maybe higuin but mostly squad players I reckon

    Benched Jimenez and Doherty away to spurs 2 gws ago. Was burned but im doing it again this gw away to city..

    Patricio(mci)
    Alonso(NEW) TAA(bha) Digne(BOU) AWB(WAT)
    Hazard(NEW) Salah(bha) Pogba(tot) Richarlison(BOU) Perreyra(cpl)
    Kane(mu)

    Bench: Jimenez(mci) Doherty(mci) Kamara(bur)

    Anyone else i should consider benching over Jimenez? Tough one since Jimenez has such a good record against top 6 sides

    1. n-doggg

      Gtg. Captain?

      1. HurriKane
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Salah for me. 3 double digit scores in 3 of last 4 pl games (mci exception)

        Expect Liverpool to bounce back in style and salah to be heavily involved

    2. Bavarian
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 12 days ago

      If you trust that AWB will keep a clean sheet, then bench Perreyra...

      1. HurriKane
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        If watford score high chance that pereyra will be involved though.

    Sane still looking as best City option after last night game?

    1. BENOIT

      Hard to say. Sterling got the night off last night...

    2. HurriKane

      Mendy back soon will be rotation with city fighting for all competitions and bald fraud tactical play

        How soon is Mendy back?

  23. Feyzi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Potentially the first GW in my life where I will have to waive a FT...
    Button,Steele/Digne,TAA,AWB,Doherty,Peltier/Salah,Hazard,Richarlison,KDB,Pogba/Kane,Jimenez,Kamara...
    2FT... 0.01ITB..
    Just find it impossible to make any transfer... or am I mistaken?

    1. waldo666
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Your keepers will be an issue soon.

      1. Feyzi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Yes, I know. I WC'd at the last possible GW and am prepared to -4 when Ryan returns. And one of my saved transfers will likely be Guita. Just that, when I WC'd, the intention was that at one point soon, one of these premiums would have to be ditched, but the time has not come and 0.0 ITB makes me less mobile...

      2. waldo666
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        If you don't want to look at your keepers just yet Peltier to Bednarek wouldn't be a bad way to burn a FT.

        1. Feyzi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 12 days ago

          Alas; I can sell Peltier at 3.8, hence the impossibility..

          1. waldo666
            • 8 Years
            4 months, 12 days ago

            Ah OK, I read above as though you had 0.1 ITB. Not too sure in that case, something may present itself.

            1. Feyzi
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              4 months, 12 days ago

              OMG, how could I mistype the singlemost important info... I am sorry mate..

    2. Klein
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Steele to speroni for 0.1?

      1. Feyzi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        🙂 I really thought of that you know... might make sence... but the thought that Button would be benched chills me... I mean to think I saved 0.1 for a non-playing goalie couple... but I know what you mean and there is reason behind it..

    3. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      KDB & Steele to Sane & Quaita?
      Peltier to Bednarek?

      1. Feyzi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        I acquired KDB as a differential out of the template, so going to Sane would be OK indeed but somehow I believe in KDB. Is there any reason you think Sane is a better pick in the long run? Tobe honest, your suggestion is the most reasonable one, except that somewhere dep inside I have this feeling KDB is gonna roar and I do not want to miss that...

        1. FPL_ANT
          4 months, 12 days ago

          I got KDB when he scored and have been patient. He could be a set and forget for the run in.
          Mendy is the reason not to get Sané

          1. Feyzi
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 12 days ago

            I also believe in him more than, actually, I believe in Hazard (or, rather, Chelsea) tbh..

        2. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 12 days ago

          I don't think that there will be all that much in it. KDB is a special player but I feel that Pep likes to keep him fresh - he's been eased back. If you really want to keep KDB then it's understandable so then why not get Bednarek - he looks fairly nailed at the moment and has some good fixtures coming up, He's even capable of a rare goal. Peltier is more attacking but he's not in the team at the moment.
