Digne keeps up FPL scoring sequence with double-digit haul

Everton’s run of four Premier League home matches without a victory was halted at Goodison Park on Sunday as Bournemouth were beaten 2-0.

The Toffees also recorded their first clean sheet since November on an excellent afternoon for owners of Everton’s defensive assets – in particular, Lucas Digne and Kurt Zouma.

We round up the key Fantasy talking points, manager quotes and injury updates from a fifth defeat in seven top-flight fixtures for Eddie Howe’s side.

Everton 2-0 Bournemouth

  • Goals: Kurt Zouma (£5.0m), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.3m)
  • Assists: Lucas Digne (£5.2m), Ademola Lookman (£5.1m)

Since establishing himself as Everton’s first-choice left-back in Gameweek 4, Lucas Digne (£5.2m) hasn’t gone more than two Premier League matches without delivering an attacking or defensive return.

That sequence was kept alive on Merseyside earlier today as Digne supplied the assist for Everton’s headed opener, teeing up Kurt Zouma (£5.0m) with a delicate cross from the left flank.

No FPL defender has been directly involved in more Premier League goals than Digne (five – three goals, two assists) over the last seven Gameweeks.

Digne’s attacking appeal has never been in question, of course: the French left-back has supplied ten more key passes than the next-most creative FPL defender in 2018/19 and has provided more “big chances” than any other player in his position.

Digne created two more of what Opta deem clear-cut opportunities on Sunday: one being the delivery for Zouma’s goal and the other a cross that resulted in Michael Keane (£4.9m) clipping the Bournemouth bar with a looping header.

The former Barcelona defender also ranks fourth for attempts on goal among defenders this campaign and had another two efforts (a blocked free-kick and a follow-up shot) at Goodison Park against the Cherries.

Reservations about Digne as a Fantasy option mostly surround Everton’s defensive fragility, which is understandable after an eight-match run for Marco Silva’s side without a Premier League clean sheet.

Only Huddersfield Town have conceded more big chances than the Toffees since the start of December, meanwhile.

Many of Digne’s current and prospective owners will be willing to overlook those deficiencies at the back but those who like the bread and butter of clean sheets probably will need more convincing than this first shut-out since Gameweek 13.

Bournemouth began this match much the better of the two sides, with David Brooks (£5.1m) striking the post with the best of the Cherries’ opportunities after running clean through on goal.

Brooks was also denied a possible penalty when Idrissa Gueye (£4.8m) dived in on the Welshman in the Everton box.

Ryan Fraser (£6.1m) created two half-chances for Joshua King (£6.3m) from the left as the visitors bossed the opening half hour, with the natives getting increasingly restless at Goodison as Everton floundered at both ends of the pitch.

Silva’s side didn’t register a single shot on target in the opening 45 minutes, either, though there was a gradual improvement as the first half drew to a close and Everton were arguably the better side after the break.

Still, the half-chances came for Bournemouth, with Steve Cook (£4.4m) nodding a Fraser corner onto the top of the net and Jordan Pickford (£5.0m) having to rush out to deny Dan Gosling (£4.7m)in stoppage time.

The Cherries forced Pickford into seven saves overall, while Asmir Begovic (£4.4m) didn’t register a single stop.

The England goalkeeper looked uncertain in the opening stages of this encounter before recovering some composure, though Seamus Coleman (£5.2m) still seems to be a weak link at right-back.

Keane and Zouma, at least, looked a solid partnership at centre-half with Yerry Mina (£5.4m) left on the bench.

Silva gave his opinion on the game:

It was tough but to be honest, we deserved the three points. We didn’t start the match well in the first 20-25 minutes. It was different in the last 15 minutes of the first half, we controlled the game a bit better and started to create some chances.

Even in that first 25 minutes they only had one clear chance and it was a foul on Zouma, I don’t understand how the referee didn’t see that foul. All the people in the stadium can see that but that the referee and his assistants didn’t see that is strange.

In the second half, we started better and faster and breaking more of that first pressure in a different way.

Richarlison (£6.9m) was back up front for this match and was anonymous in the first half, though had a bit more of an impact after the break: the Brazilian was only denied a goal when his close-range shot on 48 minutes was cleared off the line by Nathan Ake (£5.0m).

There was a sufficient lack of menace for his owners to be slightly concerned, however, and the Brazilian is averaging only three FPL points per appearance in the last six Gameweeks.

Paul Pogba (£8.4m) is the only FPL midfielder to have attempted more shots than Richarlison in that time, however.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.3m) was similarly invisible before the interval but improved slightly after half-time and on 75 minutes delivered a sublime ball into Richarlison, who could only head the Iceland international’s delivery wide.

Bernard (£5.9m) and Ademola Lookman (£5.1m) were preferred on the flanks and Lookman was Everton’s only bright spark early on, producing a couple of teasing deliveries in from each wing before gradually fading as the game wore on.

It was Lookman, however, who teed up Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.3m) for the hosts’ second goal and the youngster may have impressed enough to keep Theo Walcott (£6.1m) out of the side when Everton visit Southampton in Gameweek 23.

The Cherries have only collected four points from a possible 21 in the last seven Gameweeks but Eddie Howe was reasonably happy with his side’s efforts:

It’s a difficult one to take and one that is similar to our recent run. Personally, I’m really pleased with our performance.

We started strongly, created chances, defended well and then we switched off for a second and got punished. The game is then more difficult. We penned them in but couldn’t get that goal.

At the time, I thought the first penalty shout on Brooks probably was a penalty. I haven’t seen it back, so I may be wrong. At the end, I’ve then been told there was a stonewall, but that’s the way things are going for us at the moment.

We saw a really committed team performance today and both individually and collectively we were very good. I think we have to take a lot of confidence from the performance, not the result. If we play like that again, we can take confidence the points will come.

Fraser’s owners could have been rewarded with an assist on another day: the Scottish winger, who was playing on the left of a front three alongside King and Brooks, created more chances than anyone on show at Goodison Park and indeed all other midfielders bar James Maddison (£6.8m) in Gameweek 22 (so far).

King and Fraser were passed fit to play after recovering from illness and injury respectively but Callum Wilson (£6.6m) was unavailable and was arguably missed up top, with King lacking the conviction of his sidelined team-mate.

Howe commented on Wilson’s problem ahead of kick-off:

Callum’s hamstring strain isn’t serious but enough to keep him out of this game.

Howe added that he “didn’t know” if Wilson would be fit to recover for the match against West Ham next weekend.

Nathaniel Clyne (£4.4m) made his Premier League debut for the Cherries at right-back while there was a surprise return for Adam Smith (£4.3m), who had initially been ruled for three months with a knee injury in November.

Howe said of the full-back’s recovery:

I thought Adam Smith performed well today. He’s been doing a lot of fitness and running and I think that showed today. He didn’t look rusty and performed strongly.

Everton XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Coleman, Keane, Zouma, Digne; Gueye, Gomes; Lookman, Sigurdsson (Mina 90′), Bernard (Walcott 78′); Richarlison (Calvert-Lewin 87′).

Bournemouth XI (4-3-3): Begovic; Clyne, S. Cook, Ake, Smith; Stanislas (Mousset 68′), Lerma, Gosling; Fraser, Brooks (Ibe 83′), King.

    Are these good moves?

    Hazard & Ings > Eriksen & Rashford

    1. liiusions
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      If you already have Sane, yes. I am considering ditching Eriksen this week if Kane is confirmed out for Sane

    2. Jayv807
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      my only issue is Haz has Bournemouth and Hud after the Arsenal game. if there was ever a time he could turn it around, those are the games. That said, he hasn't been raking in the points so your transfers could definitely pay off.

      1. Sturridge Wars
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Or would Alonso > Shaw and Ings > Rashford be a better move?

  2. SADIO SANÉ

    Anyone prefer the 451?

    TAA Digne Doherty Holebas (Pereira)
    Salah Haz Pogba STERLING SANE
    Rashford

    TAA Digne Doherty (Holebas Pereira)

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Yes. If we include Sane as a premium, the 4-5-1 gives you an extra premium attacker compared to the 3-5-2.

    2. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Worked for me this week with Jiminez and Ings benched.

    3. F_Ivanovic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Nope.

    4. F_Ivanovic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      There isn't a consistent playing 4.5m striker let alone 2, so your bench would be super weak.

    5. SADIO SANÉ
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Cheers all, guess I should wait to watch City first, but annoying though missing out on rises

  3. Jayv807
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    which Option?

    1. Arnie to Jiminez
    2. Rich/Arnie to Moura/Rashford (-4) - can't afford Arnie to Rash, I'm not sure if Moura is fit?
    3. Other ideas for Arnie??

    Current Squad

    Etheridge/Guaita
    Robbo, TAA, Jonny, AWB, Bednarek
    Salah, Haz, Sane, Pogba, Rich
    Auba, Arnie, Kamara

    1. Nuno’s Dream
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      1

    2. savory

      1. See my reply below 😉

  4. F_Ivanovic
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Kane > Rashford before the rise?

    I mean, even in worst case and Kane is fine for next week it's not the worst transfer. Frees up funds to get Robbo potentially and a City mid at some point.

    1. Rhinos- AD, Melee Winners
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      not the worst to lose the best striker in the league against the worst defence?

      1. F_Ivanovic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        You're right. Definitely best to wait, not like I need the price increase.

  5. Schwarzer
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Would you do these for a - 4 hit?

    Auba > Rashford
    Son > Salah
    Alonso > Luiz/TAA (own Robbo already)

    Cheers

    1. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Absolutely - with TAA

      1. Schwarzer
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Thanks

  6. Hulk Smash
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Assume Kane is fit, which move to facilitate Salah in? I'd rather lose Auba but I think Rashford is far less of a downgrade than Jimenez.

    a) Kane > Rashford
    b) Auba > Jimenez

    1. Schwarzer
      • 9 Years

    Just squeezed into the top 2k for the first time ever (i'll tank like nobody's business now, 6 million mark, here I come).

    1. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Nice going. I've been hovering between 10-20k for the last 6 weeks. You've got to be mega consistent at that rank to stay there.

    2. RIPAguero

      I'll drop though as I have no City!

    3. baps sniffer

      Do link your team, thank you.

  8. savory
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Moura in for Son, which means I can do DCL to Rashford.

    Hell of a gamble as Moura missed out today but can replace Son pretty easily (see separate article from Alli about this) and play up front should Kane be done. He's got all week to be fit for Fulham anyway.

    1. Jayv807
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      i'm considering a very similar gamble (see above). I might pull the trigger and risk it

      1. savory
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        1 is the sensible option, your midfield is great as it is. 2 if your chasing a leader in your leagues.

        I'm rockin

        Salah Hazard Pogba Moura
        Jiminez Aguero Rashford

        Next week

    2. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Should be a great short term option

    3. Rhinos- AD, Melee Winners
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I'm doing the same. Poch said getting players back this week and im hopeful Moura is one of them

  9. Deulofale
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Who's most likely to be fit and nailed for GW27?

    A) Rico
    B) Kiko
    C) Ogbonna

  10. Plymouth
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Just did Arnie to Rash. Marks transfer persuaded me.

    1. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Good move imo

    2. Cookie Kid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      What has mark done?

  11. Snevitz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Am I right to start Doherty (LEI) rather than Alonso (ars) next week?

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      No. Alonso goal and an assist last time that played Arse

    2. Yog Sorloth Is The Gate
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      No

    3. Deulofale
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I think so but it's tricky. My first instinct was to bench Alonso and start Doherty and Digne (sou).

    4. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Thanks, I'll check cleansheet odds and consider my options from that as well.
      Alonso and Luiz on my bench is bound to mean Chelsea keep a clean sheet.

      1. Deulofale
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        fwiw RMT much prefers Doherty this week

        1. Snevitz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Yeah, I think it looks the best option with with the reasoning that F_Ivanovic used below. Thanks

        2. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        • 1 Year
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Chelsea 29/10 = less than 25%
        Wolves 6/4 = less than 40%

        1. Snevitz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Good work, you saved me a job 🙂

    5. F_Ivanovic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Yes, absolutely. Similar chance of attacking returns and much higher CS potential.

    6. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I have been considering to ditch Alonso, since I have also Luiz. Not happy to play them both. But maybe I'll have to take the price drop again in my chin because of Kane news.

      1. Snevitz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I'll be playing both 25, 27 and 29 (HUD, BRI, ful).
        Luiz has been really useful since i got him in but Alonso is still the best none Liverpool defender in the game.

        1. baps sniffer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Is he actually? Usually he has at least passed the eye test or underlying stats, but no longer.

        Not happy to play either tbh

  12. JabbaWookiee

    Best way to free up a million?

    A) Doherty to Bednarek
    B) Digne to Bennett

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Neither

      1. JabbaWookiee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        No other way to do it other than downgrade TAA or Robertson which is obviously out of the question. Need the mil for the Anderson to Pogba upgrade.

        1. Rhinos- AD, Melee Winners
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          You can't drop either of them it's daft

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            I know it seems daft on the surface. But I think Pogba is gonna rip it up over the next few and fear being without him. Plus getting rid of one of Digne or Doherty also means no benching headache.

    7. F_Ivanovic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Downgrade Robbo out of all of them. But I wouldn't, I'd just go without Pogba for now and keep Anderson one more week. Or go for straight swap to Martial.

    8. JabbaWookiee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Pondered very long, very hard, did spreadsheets and stared at statistics and I'm happy to say B is now done and I feel very happy about it. Finally off to bed. Night all. Cheers for the input.

      Keep those mids for one more week. Just do Kane to Jim if it's ends up he's out

  14. Monya Meow Meow
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Wanting to do Son > Sane with my only FT but Sane hasn't played yet and still have Kane to worry about.
    That trade will be a 0.2 swing if it doesn't go through in an hour's time argh!

    A) Bite the bullet and take the risk
    B) Patience and absorb the 0.2 swing

    If Kane is out for a while, straight choice imo as already got Rash and Jiminez.

    A) Auba
    B) Kun

    1. Yog Sorloth Is The Gate
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      A

      1. Nuno’s Dream
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Any reason? Purely the illness or better option longer term?

        1. Yog Sorloth Is The Gate
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Better option long term

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      I guess A is more nailed and no BGW?

    Haven't seen West Ham games recently. How did Anderson go from 4 shots on target away to Southampton to 1 shot on target last 3

    1. Nuno’s Dream
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Still looked a threat tbf kiwi

        I already thought about Son>Anderson and Son dropping tonight is annoying

        1. F_Ivanovic
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          probably wait on Anderson. I have and not in a rush to sell but I wouldn't be in a rush to buy either till their fixtures turn good again in 3/4 GWs time

    2. Hits from the Bong
      3 months, 7 days ago

      He went very very close with a shot off target yesterday. Arnie has been back the last 3 games, we had no other decent attacker against Southampton as Perez played up front.

      Either of those to Pogba is a downgrade. Pogba had his 3 game explosion. Might not repeat again this season

      1. liverpool01
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Pogba also got a assist today, ain't just about the goals, i would drop Hazard. Chelsea look poor don't know why Giroud ain't starting

        have you watched him play

  18. Sturridge Wars

    Which one?

    A) Hazard & Ings > Eriksen & Rashford
    B) Alonso & Ings > Shaw & Rashford

      Alonso in first 11 games = 8 attacking returns.
      Alonso in last 11 games = 0 attacking returns.

      He is actually a decent striker and could do well if given a run in the team despite his age!

    3. VeryHairyBabyParade

      Shame he's an absolute donkey

    Both Kane & Auba blanking was a bit rough this GW, hopefully the big hitting strikers can start firing heavily in upcoming GWs to make the game a bit more interesting.
    (reading some of the comments on here it seems that Kane is out until at least the start of the 2023/24 season 😉 )

      If he is confirmed to Chelsea his price will Pogba up!

  22. Camp No No

    Thoughts on Martial? Not scoring, but underlying stats are good.

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 7 days ago

      concerned about lukaku return

  23. HD7
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Have Robbo.

    Kola to:
    A) Shaw - nice fixtures; spread the risk
    B) TAA - double up Liverpool defense; maybe rotated sometimes but hes on free kicks and corners

    1. Mysterion
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      B. Wouldn't expect any rotation now as long as he stays fit

  24. Indio
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Currently have exact coin for Brooks and Kane > Salah and Rash (thanks to £3.1M itb) - a trade which will likely move out of reach overnight.

    Or there's the option of waiting for news on Kane and shipping out Auba and Martial instead for the same incoming pair (my original plan), but if Kane's not fit I've missed out.

    What would you do in my situation?

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Salah slight upgrade on healthy Kane and Rash massive upgrade on Brooks

      1. Hulk Smash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Not easy to ditch Kane if fit but I agree with this. Overall it's an improvement.

    2. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      wait for news and reassess

      I would do it. I am not JontyJoe 😉

    Kane’s grand, he just rolled he ankle. If it was bad they’d have immobilised it & stretchered him off.

    Hattrick v Fulham.

    1. Rhinos- AD, Melee Winners
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      because no one who's ever limped off a pitch has ever missed the next game

    2. Yank Revolution
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      You don't know that at all. Ankles are very tricky and sensitive...rolling it is painful and requires days off, if not a week or more.

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        He was chatting to the physio though. Putting weight on the ankle immediately after the impact is a good sign

        1. Yank Revolution
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Youre clearly invested in him not being injured, your bias is showing. And I think you're 100 pct wrong.

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Not at all, relax buddy, he’s fine.

    4. El Fenomeno R9
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Problem is it was painful for him and muscles were hot,when they get cold its worse.

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        A rolled ankle is fiercely painful,and can look horrible for a few days with swelling etc. But it can recover quite fast.

        1. El Fenomeno R9
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Yeah i rolled my ankles many times,especially on basketball when you land on opponent foot.
          Just hurt a little and you go on while its hot no problems,but after that you cant walk/train few days.

          I think he miss next GW just wild guess.

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            People have actually vomited with the pain of a twisted ankle and been fine days later

          2. Hits from the Bong
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Basketball is for girls though so it’s not really relevant here.

            1. El Fenomeno R9
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 6 days ago

              Yeah its about basketball not ankles.

      Poch's comments after the game tells me somethings wrong

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        A classic smokescreen I’d imagine

        1. Yank Revolution
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Wrong, again. Poch looked and sounded genuinely concerned.

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            As he should after losing at home to Man Utd

            1. Yank Revolution
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 6 days ago

              Concerned about Kane...don't be intentionally dense.

              1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 6 days ago

                Any manager would be “concerned” about anything else that can distract from the fact that thy just lost a massive game at home to a rival, come on, it’s not that difficult

                1. Yank Revolution
                  • 7 Years
                  3 months, 6 days ago

                  It's clear you didn't see the game, see him go down, see him howling in pain holding his ankle, see him rise and slowly gimp off the field or see Poch's brief post game interview.

                  Keep on being obstinate.

                  1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years
                    3 months, 6 days ago

                    It’s clear you are naively buying Poch’s smokescreen to distract from the defeat

                    1. Yank Revolution
                      • 7 Years
                      3 months, 6 days ago

                      So says the guy who was loudly and repeatedly advocating for Hazard a few weeks ago...like Jon Snow, you know nothing.

                      You wanna go on?

                      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 9 Years
                        3 months, 6 days ago

                        So Kane is fine.

                        Now - what is your opinion on Haz that you wish to share?

    Anyone going to captain Pogba next week? My first choice would be Kane vs Fulham but he is injured

    AND i will have Salah next week but i just think Pogba has better match up, Palace can play defensively.

    1. Deulofale
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      BHA can't play defensively?

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I feel like they've never conceded more than 2 on more than 2-3 occasions last 2 seasons

      2. Niho992
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Not away.

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      I'll accept any Pogba points but would rarely C. That said last time I had on him I bottled out and he scored 18
