FPL Team News and Injury Round-up – Double Gameweek 25

Our round-up of the pre-match press conferences starts with the two teams who are in action twice in Gameweek 25: Manchester City and Everton.

Pep Guardiola confirmed that Vincent Kompany was his only injury-enforced absentee for the visit of Arsenal before delivering the following update on Benjamin Mendy (knee) when asked about the Frenchman’s availability:

Really I don’t know. After the minutes he played at Burton he had two or three days not training. In the last two training sessions, he was able to train so we’ll see day by day.

Yerry Mina (foot) and Phil Jagielka (unknown) are again sidelined for Everton, who will make late checks on Leighton Baines (hip) and Idrissa Gueye (minor injury).

Lucas Digne, of course, will miss the first of Everton’s Gameweek 25 fixtures through suspension.

Across Merseyside, Jurgen Klopp confirmed that both Trent Alexander-Arnold (knee) and Joe Gomez (leg) will miss out on the visit of West Ham United on Monday.

Klopp said:

No return date for Joe [Gomez]. Trent [Alexander-Arnold] is getting better, really close, I would hope he’s in full training next week. But not for now.

Marko Arnautovic (foot) is uncertain to be ready for the visit of Liverpool and will be assessed by medical staff on Saturday but Manuel Pellegrini was more optimistic of Lukasz Fabianski‘s (arm) chances of featuring on Monday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer provided an update on Paul Pogba (groin) and Anthony Martial (knock) in his presser this morning, saying:

I don’t think there’s anything [serious] with Paul [Pogba]. Anthony [Martial] has done some rehab work, so he will try a session today, so I would imagine he would be available to be involved.

We’ve not had a proper session since the game, so hopefully, both of them can get through that.

Arsenal reported that Laurent Koscielny (jaw) has returned to full training, while Ainsley Maitland-Niles (knee) and Henrikh Mkhitaryan (foot) will be assessed ahead of Sunday’s match against Manchester City.

Unai Emery said of Denis Suarez‘s potential availability:

I know the player. He started to train yesterday and today with the group. I think he is good, he adapts quickly and he is a player with quality.

I am thinking about all the players. If he starts, I have confidence in him.

He can play right, left, he can play inside like a No. 10. I will use him in all of these positions. He played on the left for us with Sevilla, with Villarreal more right-winger and with Barcelona more inside.

There is no change for [Mesut]. Denis is coming here because we have a lot of problems with the winger. That is the reason.

Maurizio Sarri had plenty to say about Chelsea’s current plight in his presser, including the following comments on Eden Hazard:

I think that he’s changing. He was used to playing as an individual player. Now he has to play in a particular way. It’s not easy for him because he became Hazard playing in another way, so I think very well it’s not easy. But I can see that, now, he is more available to play in this way. He needs to improve, of course.

That’s normal. He’s fantastic from the technical point of view, and I think he can do more tactically. At the moment, it’s not easy for our striker to play in this team. We have a lot of individual players like Hazard, Willian and Pedro, so it’s not easy for the striker to do the right movement at the right time.

Ben Davies (groin) will miss out for Spurs, who will face a Newcastle United side still without Paul Dummett (hamstring), Ki Sung-yueng (hamstring), Jonjo Shelvey (thigh) and Mohamed Diame (groin).

New signing Antonio Barreca has been added to the Magpies’ match-day squad, though fellow deadline day recruit Miguel Almirón won’t feature because of visa issues.

Callum Wilson (knee) will be out for three to four weeks for Bournemouth, while the Cherries’ opponents on Saturday, Cardiff City, still have concerns over Victor Camarasa (knock).

Roy Hodgson suggested James Tomkins (hamstring) will be fit to feature this weekend and even hinted that Michy Batshuayi could be involved, saying:

I will see him this afternoon. I’ll wait here to meet him and speak with him, he was fit enough for Valencia so there’s no reason not to play for us. But I need to speak to him to find out how he feels and make a decision.

Bernardo (hamstring) has returned to training for Brighton and will be assessed ahead of the visit of Watford, with the Hornets again set to be without Abdoulaye Doucoure (knee) and Kiko Femenia (hamstring).

Ralph Hasenhuttl will check on the fitness of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (head) ahead of the trip to Turf Moor, where hosts Burnley welcome back Robbie Brady (groin) from injury.

Philip Billing (knee) is back in training for Huddersfield Town, meanwhile.

Nuno Espirito Santo, Claude Puel and Claudio Ranieri didn’t report any fresh injury scares in their respective press conferences.

    Hi guys, captain Kun or Sane?
    Thanks!

  3. Gameweek 25 Captaincy

    GW25 brings us the first double gameweek of the season with Manchester City and Everton playing home games at the weekend and then facing each other at Goodison Park on Wednesday night. Now for me, this week's captain has to be a Manchester City player. Some people have suggested the likes of Salah, Hazard or Pogba could be better options with just one fixture but even if City only had the Arsenal game you could point to the fact that the Citizens have scored 40 goals in their 12 home league games this season whilst Arsenal have conceded 22 in 11 away games- that’s even more than Huddersfield - and then you get the Everton game as well.

    On the face of it, Arsenal and Everton don’t look like the dream pair of opponents for a team with a double gameweek, but at least they should both let City play. I can’t see either of those sides putting loads of men behind the ball and we could hopefully be in for some really entertaining fixtures.

    I only currently hold Leroy Sané so my armband is with him though Sterling is arguably the better pick if you have him. Sergio Aguero could also be in for a big gameweek.

    The major caveat to all this of course is Pep roulette. Does the ever looming threat of rotation put you off or is the prospect of the leagues highest scorers chasing down a five point gap at the top of the table over two games an opportunity that’s just too good to be missed?

    Triple captain anyone?

    Who are you captaining this gameweek and why?

    1. shearer9

      Why is Sterling 'arguably' the better pick, out of interest? Still haven't decided between him and Sane.

      1. Gregor

        1 month, 15 days ago

        Just because he can play on either side and with Mendy potentially coming back into the team, could go either way really.

          Forget Mendy, he won't impact on Sané's minutes when both fit imo...

          So that should easily tell you who I own 😆

    2. Misteak
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Sane just because he's the only city player I have. tempted by Salah but I'm going to follow the crowd here

    3. Prisoner B5160-8
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Yeah, I'm TC'ing Agüero. I'm at 97k so what the hell.

    4. _figu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Sane, my only City. Would consider Aguero if I had him.

    5. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Pep roulette is the biggest factor for me - would happily Triple Captain Sane or Sterling if i knew they would start both and get at least 150 mins across the two games

      1. Billybigspuds
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        I have a theory on this, in that I think pep realised he may have overrotated players during Xmas period which was one of the reasons it led to a loss of form.

        With this in mind (and also that sane and Sterling had a good rest up to newc game) I think there could be a lot less rotation than most assume.

        Whether this right or not time will tell

    6. Karan14 - (RoboKlopp)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Sane as he’s my only DGW player and think he’ll get minutes in both games.

    7. Regin
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I am getting in Sane and Aguero and captaining Sane.
      Not cold to triple captain though due to rotation threat.

      Apart from Laporte & Ederson, do u think any defender (less than 5.5m) will start both matches- Stones or Danilo?

      1. Jealous Viper
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Danilo just could given the fact he could play right back as well. Maybe delph at left back and danilo at rb if mendy isn't fit and even if mendy is tbh

    8. And nothing else Mata'…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      David Siva. But still not 100%, not sure will he play both fixtures?

    9. The Big Fella
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Sane or Salah for me. I haven't decided yet!

    10. Jealous Viper
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Pulled the plug finally and went Haz to Sane for a hit. The allure of two games and Chelsea's poor form did it for me. Won't triple cap but think he will do well

      1. chilli con kone
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Wow I’m considering not doing that for free

      2. Son is Rising
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Haz vs HUD though. It's the perfect troll set up.

    11. mixology
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Surprised to see Aguero leading the captaincy poll, but could definitely score well. Sane or sterling for me, guessing sterling is so low because most don’t own him rather than rotation fears

    12. Billybigspuds
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Got both Sane and Sterling (transferred in for this gw) and very tempted to go for TC.

      For me Sane just nudges is as by my reckoning he is slightly more likely to get more game time and his form appears to be better.

      Good post though and think these fixtures are far more appealing than away at Newcastle.

    13. Dybala10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Sane.

      You have to have the balls to captain a player in a double game week no matter the opponents.This is what we live for and you need to look at the odds and as obvious as it is, double the games then double the chance to get points.

      Salah proved midweek he can't do it every game and even as a rotation risk, Sane is worth the armband.

    14. Amey
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Sane TC !!

    15. SADIO SANÉ
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Sane I suppose, not that pumped about it given Mendy's possible return (against Everton I guess) - have a feeling Bilva is the one who plays twice but I'd need to remove Haz for him (who could haul himself)

    16. Feyzi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Kun or Sane. The latter out of security, the former out of explosiveness. The former is already a differential out of the template, but captaining him, Kun, and hoping for a hat-trick of one in two fixtures is a dream (come true), though I may be content with 2 goals from Sane in two.

      1. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Which one for C?? It’s tough

    17. Geoff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Sane looks like the pick I'll be going for.

      I've done Hazard > Sane because I don't fully trust Chelsea or Hazard right now, and there was no way I was going into the DGW without a City player.

      There's a chance I'll go for Sterling too (or maybe even Aguero) but I don't have them yet so Sane is currently my captain. Part of me is considering a TC but I'm not fully convinced.

      If I had all the City assets I might be tempted by Aguero.. actually I might go any direction really, I think there are merits for Sane, Sterling, and Aguero

      1. Pep Pig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Go for it Geoff. TC all the way this week. I'm still scarred from Kanes DGW last season. I knew that was risky at the time... but Sterling TC just feels right this time. I good luck

    18. General_Zod
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      TC Sane here.
      I have Aguero too.

      Main reason is there simply isnt a better, current obvious time to play it. I intend to WC in 34 and FH in 32. Currently that leaves Sal v Hudd in 36 but even if he bangs and I capt him there wont be much damage.

      Chelsea dgw not a cert and requires a few events for it to be a possibility.

      So, its TC.

      Sane over Aguero as he has better form and imo even if Mendy returns he'll play in both.
      Finally, check out Ars Eve chances conceded on the right over the last 4. 14 and 15, near the highest Fulham 19 anc consider Arsenal will have a patched up defence and Everton defence has leaked goals all season.

        You said it, « current ».

        1. General_Zod
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Exactly. Im working with information we know and choosing to play it in gw where theres a guaranteed advantage over holding in the hope that one comes up in the remainder of the season.

          Understand your point about starting one game, my point was more he'll cause merry hell against both teams even if minutes restricted.

          1. Pieterke30
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            That’s enough for me to captain Sané - was on him anyway - but TC... Im not sure. I think we will have a DGW down the line in which one or two good players will be more nailed on to start both games.

            But your reasoning is sound so I you feel it go for it, by all means!

            GL mate anyway

            1. General_Zod
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 15 days ago

              You too, mate. And thanks for the reply.

            2. The Dead Parrots
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 15 days ago

              Yes we will have other DGW but like Mr G_Zod there are other chips to play.

              Likely DGW:
              32
              35

              Therefore chips + WC:
              32 - FH
              34 - WC
              35 - BB

              If not playing this week would have to play SGW TC. I take it there could be good picks for this, like Salah v Hud 36 but title race could be over by then.

      3. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        About the chances conceded on the right - indeed, but if Sané only starts one game it wont matter that much.

      4. Pep Pig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        This was perfectly put mate and my thinking exactly with regards to TC this week

      5. The Dead Parrots
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Too clarify, presume you intend to BB 35.

        I agree with this post and it's why I'm going with TC this week on a City asset.

        Didn't work for me last year so I can concede an argument that should be played another SGW but don't get the view that a 4th DGW will appear in the calendar after the results of the last round of the FA Cup.

        1. General_Zod
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Yes, Pal. I will BB in 35.

          We have the same view on the 4th dgw, its only hypothetical. I think if anything a triple could happen in 32 but it would be v. unlikely and if it did FH with a triple up beats TC.

          This week seems best and its guaranteed.

          1. The Dead Parrots
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Interesting thread here;
            https://twitter.com/BenCrellin/status/1091427578114646016

            Seems there could theoretically be another DGW but not guaranteed + clubs could have little to play for then and be focusing on the cups.

            I'm not confident but best of a bad bunch of options.

            I have Sane + Sterling, thinking of going for Sane. Who would you go for from them 2? Who are you going to put the TC armband on?

            1. General_Zod
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 15 days ago

              TC on Sane for me out of Sane and Aguero.

              If I were you I'd probably do the same. There good reasons for any out of Sane, Sterling, Aguero.

              While Sane shades it Sterling is owned by less so if he outscored Sane you'd be well up.

              Ill take a look at the link. Cheers.

              57%
              Not exactly great odds. I'll stick to using the chip this week.

              Good luck for the game week.

                Thanks for the replies.

                Agreed I'd be happy with any of Sane, Sterling and Aguero but think Sane just edges it on likelihood of minutes.

                Good luck also and here's to hoping we don't get trolled by Pep!

    19. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

      I'm going Salah (c) - I think i will probably be going cityless in attack (Have Ederson & Richarlison)

      It could come back to bite me... but I'm not 100% convinced by City - they had an outstanding first third of the season, but haven't been as productive in the second third - there is always a case for and against though:

      The case against:

      Man City GW1 - 13 = 3.15 goals per game (13 games played, 41 goals scored, 0 defeats, 5 games scoring 4 or more)
      Man City GW14 - 24 = 2.10 goals per game (11 games played 23 goals scored, 4 defeats, zero games scoring 4 or more)

      Sterling:
      - 102 points scored in first 14 gameweeks
      - 41 points in last 10 gameweeks

      Sane:
      - 5 blanks in last 9 gameweeks (averaging worse than a blank every 2 games of late)

      Pep:
      - Possibility of rest, rotation and/or truncated minutes

      The Case For:
      - They are a really, really, really good attacking team, against two less than stellar defences in one gameweek

      It should be interesting!

        So much more research put into the case against than the case for... wonder why 😉

        1 month, 15 days ago

        "averaging worse than a blank every 2 games of late"

        Yet has returned in 3 of the last 4, averaging 8pts per game over that period. That's better than Salah, Pogba, Auba, Aguero, in fact is there a better scorer over the last 4?

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Yes in that range James Ward Prowse has outscored him (last 4 games). Salah has matched him or take a point or two, in the same range, but crucially doesn’t have the string of blanks leading back beyond then. But I’m not saying Sane won’t do well - he could do very well.

          But he does have 5 blanks in the last 9 - which rarely gets raised - hopefully for his owners, his captainers, and his triple captainers he doesn’t get any more blanks or get rested/rotated/limited minutes in the DGW.

            JWP(TC), why didn't you just say it!!

              Certainly not something I would endorse, but each to their own!

            Btw the range 9 GW's rarely gets raised as it goes back almost 2 months. A player could have had 2 separate pockets of form and a dip in between easily in that time. The last 4 weeks are WAY more pertinent than the last 9, which is just desperation.

            1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

              Sure thing bud, those games don’t matter, let’s just pretend they didn’t happen 😉

                1 month, 15 days ago

                OK I agree Sane had a fairly average couple of games in December so that's bound to have a major impact on his performances in Feb.

                1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  1 month, 15 days ago

                  And how about 3 days ago’s performance - Also irrelevant? That’s 4 blanks in his last 7 GW’s

              1 month, 15 days ago

              He selected the range of 9 GWs because it is the range that looks worst for Sane.
              It starts with City's dip in form from GW16-19 when they lost 3 games out of 4.

              He has been a regular starter from GW5 onwards.
              GW5-17: Apart from 1 match when he didn't play (against Spurs) and 3 where he played less than 60 minutes (against Liverpool, United and Chelsea), he had attacking returns in all of the other 9 (including 2 assists against Everton in GW17).
              GW18-20: He blanked in all of these 3 matches, although in GW20 he only played for 6 minutes.
              GW21-23: Attacking returns in all 3 (including a goal against Liverpool).
              GW24: An unexpected blank against Newcastle.

                • 8 Years
                1 month, 15 days ago

                GW16-19: City lost to Chelsea in GW16, beat Everton in GW17, and were without Fernandinho in GW18-19.

                “He selected the range of 9 GWs because it is the range that looks worst for Sane.”

                No he did not - the range that looks worst for Sané is the last 7 GW’s - 4 blanks in 7 is a worse than 5 blanks in 9.

                As I said above, Sané could do well, and as I said above, we shouldn’t brush his blanks under the carpet either.

      TC Sane is on! Terrified. Might bottle it later but might drink a few beers a forget.

        I'm not confident in it but going to do the same. Can't see a better time to play it as have my WC + all chips. Hope it doesn't turn out like the Kane TC last year which burned me!

    21. jackjones

      Salah, because West Ham are rubbish. And I don’t have any City or Everton players do a fairly easy decision.

  4. yer old da
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Which one if struggling for a transfer?

    A. Hamer > Boruc?
    B. Digne and Fraser > 4.3 def and Richarlison?

    1. Van der Faart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      B

  5. Van der Faart
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Digne to Jonny for free? I'm also thinking of Hazard to Sterling to double up with Sane for -4. Thoughts?

    1. Real Socialad
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Digne yes. Hazard No.

    2. G-Whizz

    1. Van der Faart

      No

    2. The Big Fella

      Absolutely not

  7. Real Socialad
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Thinking about bringing in Ward Prowse for Fraser. Should I
    A) wait a few weeks
    B) do it next week (not taking a hit on it)
    C) leave it as this is clearly stupid points chasing

    1. lankdog
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      leave it. he's playing well but he's not even the best southampton midfield asset imo (redmond is)

    Hi Guys

    Help is needed please

    Which two would you play out of

    Shaw (lei)
    Cathcart (bri)
    Bamba (BOU)

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. Real Socialad
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Bamba and Shaw

  9. finnish92
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Is it worth a -4pts hit to bring in Ward-Prowse as my fifth midfielder? Thinking about eventually future price rising...

    1. _figu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      He's a decent option but I wouldn't for a hit. Seems a bit of chasing points.

    2. Garlando
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      No

    3. Demigod Mendy
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Imagine losing to your ML rival by 3 points at the end of the season because you took a hit for your 5th mid considering a 'future price rise'.

    4. whosBenj

      Not if you aren't playing 5 in mid.

    5. finnish92

      Cheers! Even if my currently 5th mid is Murphy(Cardiff) and he never plays?

  10. whosBenj
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Firmino > Aguero?

    1ft. Only have Sane for DGW. Would have 3 blank starters to get rid before GW27 if I do the transfer.

    1. Regin

    Hows this look?

    2FTs 0 in the bank

    Hazard, F.Anderson, Alonso 》 Sane, De Bruyne, Bednarek (-4pts)

    and pocket the 1.1m.

    Leaves me with this:

    Fabianski
    Robertson Doherty Bednarek
    Salah Sanè(C) KDB Pogba Richarlison
    Rashford Jimènez

    Hart / Deeney / Bennett / Digne*

    Thoughts?

    1. Real Socialad
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I'd be tempted to go for Manga or Bamba from Cardiff or a Brighton instead of Bednarek as both have good fixtures through to at least GW31, Bednarek hits a poor run on GW29

    2. chilli con kone

        Unfortunately the same Hazard and Luiz who have been truly dreadful recently.

    2. chilli con kone
      • 5 Years

      No It’s not worth the transfers and value loss for getting Pog back

  13. chilli con kone

    A. Siggy to Sane
    B. Hazard to Sane/Sterling
    C. Neither

    Fabianski Digne bednarek puncheon

    Used 2ft putting aguero and son in. Next week plan is aguero to aubameyang.

    GTG?

    Who would you captain?

  16. Sondre van Bank
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Just did Auba --> Aguero (C) without thinking it through. Did I do ok?

    Also, what's up with TAA?

    1. FDMS All Starz
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Yes it’s ok if there aren’t other issues in you team and if you can get him back next week

    2. Delph & Safety
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3. _figu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Aguero is a good option. Good move if you didn't have Sane/Sterling already.

      Knee problem, small set back. Klopp was saying he should be back in full training next week.

    4. Sondre van Bank

      No

      1. FDMS All Starz

        Why? Richa has a blank gw27 and deeney is in dire form, does it mpnot make sense?

        1. Sondre van Bank

    Arnie > Kun (c) for -4?
    Then to Auba GW after?

    If Arnie doesn’t play I’ll likely have 10 players only fielded. Worth a punt right?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 4 Years

      yep

    2. Paulinho14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1 month, 15 days ago

      yes

    3. Real Socialad
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Yes. Definitely worth the -4 as Aguero is likely to pick this up anyway as a raw score without doing anything. Arnie probably won't play and if he does, won't score; ITS LIVERPOOL

      1. Slouch87
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        What does this even mean "without doing anything"? :-

        "Aguero is likely to pick this up anyway as a raw score without doing anything. "

        "Arnie probably won't play and if he does won't score . ITS LIVERPOOL:
        What does ITS LIVERPOOL mean ?

        They conceded against Leicester .

        Drivel.

  22. Paulinho14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Who do I bring in for Digne?
    a) AWB
    b) Lindelöf
    c) Jonny (double up as I have Doherty)

    and is King for Wilson worth a -4?

    1. Real Socialad
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I'd leave the Digne thing and just go for Wilson > King. Radical, but Digne is only out for 1

    2. A19
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Yeah just do Wilson -> King

  23. Misteak

    Don't want to waste an FT but only have 0.1 ITB so I can only move sideways. Do I...

    A. Hamer > Boruc

    B. TAA > Kolasinac

    C. Kamara > Crouch

    1. Paulinho14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      A or C (if you have a soft spot for the robot like me)

  24. Funny Face
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Is Aubameyang to Aguero worth it as a straight swap?

    I only brought Aubameyang in last week, supposedly for five weeks and chose him over Aguero so I didn't have to waste a transfer for the blank game week. The likely changes in prices mean that I could trade back for a profit later. I see the double game week and think what could be. Am I being greedy?

    1. Sondre van Bank
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I just did the exact same thing as I didn't have any other City players in my team.

      1. Funny Face
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Thanks. I feel foolish for not bringing in Aguero in the first place but I feel holding on through stubbornness would cost me more. I have B Silva as well but feels light.

    2. Real Socialad
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Do the swap and as long as nothing blows up in your team, switch it back for 26

    Seriously though what would you do if you had this team? No idea.

    Fabianski

    Is Auba>Aguero worth it for this GW? I have 2 FTs so don't wanna waste one. Would prob get Auba back in next GW (and Son for Sane). Planning Digne to Pereira in GW27. Can't see any other moves to make.

    E. Other

    1. Garlando

      Also look at manga 4.4 at Cardiff.

      1. Feed tha Sheep
        • 6 Years

        Don’t know much about Cardiff is he centre back or attacking at all?

        1. Garlando
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Fairly attacking for a Cardiff player, get him more for clean sheets tho, I wouldn't expect more for 4.4, im in the same boat as u, have 4.4m for a defender, not a fan of most of the options you shared above.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Yea surely. Meant for this GW. Think I'll just keep and hope Sarri makes some changes after their poor game against Bournemouth.

        1. fenixri
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Imo Alonso will start against HUD. Hoping for some attacking returns

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 4 Years

      i would sell 100%

  30. fenixri
    • 2 Years

    Would you do Speroni->Boruc for free this week (Fab first gk) but that means that I will have to keep Hazard one more week (MCI)

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 4 Years

      thats what i m doing with steele to boruc.

      1. fenixri
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        I will probably do it. Thinking to wait for tomorrow, they shouldnt rise or fall in price tonight right?
