Son leaves it late as Spurs flatter to deceive against spirited Leicester

Another Gameweek, another laboured victory for Spurs, whose win over Leicester was much more than a 3-1 scoreline suggests.

The home side were certainly clinical at Wembley Stadium but had to dig deep to hold off a Foxes onslaught, especially in the second half.

The game that featured Gameweek 26’s most popular player in the transfer market is the focus of this latest Scout Notes article.

Spurs 3-1 Leicester

Goals: Davison Sánchez (£5.8m), Christian Eriksen (£9.3m), Son Heung-min (£8.8m) | Jamie Vardy (£8.8m)

Assists: Eriksen, Fernando Llorente (£5.7m), Moussa Sissoko (£4.9m)

Son Heung-min (£8.8m) left it late but still managed to reward his large number of new owners with a goal against Leicester on Sunday afternoon. The South Korean was the most transferred-in player ahead of Gameweek 26 with over 550,000 managers signing him up. The game itself was frustrating viewing for his 21% ownership as he was unable to have as much impact on proceedings as he would have liked.

Son was top of the charts for goal attempts in the game, but only one of them was in the box and just one was on target. That was his stoppage-time goal which would have been perhaps harder to miss than to score as he had the freedom of the Wembley pitch to bear down on goal and slot past Kasper Schmeichel (£5.0m). Outside of that, the FPL midfielder had few clear cut chances, and it would be easy to argue that he was fortunate to score yet again. However, the player himself would tell you his late goal was just desserts after he was brought down in the box by Harry Maguire (£5.4m) in the first half but was booked for diving instead.

“It was a clear penalty. It was the same referee but now I don’t know how he has measured the situation. It is so difficult. I am a person that always accepts the mistake but I think it was so strange the situation today. It was so clear the position today with Sonny, the action, but it wasn’t clear the position of Maddison when he was on the floor. I think it is unbelievable.” – Mauricio Pochettino

The star performer from a Fantasy perspective was Christian Eriksen (£9.3m) who got himself a goal and an assist against Leicester. He made up for a particularly poor performance against Newcastle, in which he did not create a single chance, by offering a spread of Fantasy potential this time around. He played two key passes and had two efforts on goal, combining for his first double-figure haul since Gameweek 19. With ongoing talks about his future at the club, it was a timely display from Eriksen.

“We’ve spoken a lot about that, now we need to keep going, for him to continue performing in his best and of course I told you before he’s such an important player for us. We’ll see what happens. I think I’ve used a few metaphors in the past about Christian, remember related with my family and my dog. He needs to feel the freedom to take his decisions. I think keeping going, so happy with him and we’ll see what happens in the end.” – Mauricio Pochettino

However, as already mentioned, it was a game that was not fully reflected in the scoreline. Spurs did not warrant a 3-1 victory while Leicester really should have scored more than they did. The visitors finished the match with an expected goals (xG) score of 3.12 to their hosts’ 1.08. Spurs had more of the possession (53% to 47%), but the Foxes were considerably more purposeful with the ball. They had more than triple the shots in the box and twice as many big chances as Spurs.

Harvey Barnes (£5.5m) has excited since coming back to Leicester following a loan spell at West Bromwich Albion but he was missing the clinical edge at Wembley. No player who started the match had more efforts in the box than him, but only one of his three shots there was on target. At the opposite end of the experience-scale was Jamie Vardy (£8.8m) who was surprisingly benched for the encounter but was introduced in the 59th minute. He was being lined up to come on before James Maddison (£6.6m) won a penalty, but was rushed on once it was there to be taken. With his first touch of the match, the 32-year-old had his effort saved by Hugo Lloris (£5.4m), who proved one of the key performers for Spurs given Leicester’s spirited display. To Vardy’s credit, he managed to finish the match joint-top with Barnes for shots in the box, despite playing just 31 minutes.

“I think we are talking about one of the best keepers in the world, with a lot of experience and having played a lot of games here at Tottenham. I think he’s showing his value and of course, in the decisive moments like today, I think it was so important to help the team achieve the three points. Of course, his quality is there and we cannot doubt that.” – Mauricio Pochettino

“I could have waited (to make the change). He was ready to come on and I gave him the opportunity to shoot the penalty. I said to him if he felt up to it he can take it, but it is not just the penalty, the whole game we have had all the possibilities to lead this game or get back into the game. We don’t know. Perhaps it was not a good thing or a good thing, we don’t know. Yes, normally Jamie is the penalty taker. I gave him the opportunity to take this penalty.” – Claude Puel

Aside from the penalty, Maddison was at the heart of much of Leicester’s play. He created more chances than any other player on the Wembley pitch, and was, in fact, the top creator for the whole of Gameweek 26, no other player beating his total of seven key passes.

Ricardo Pereira (£5.3m) was also useful as he pushed on from his right-back position. Maddison was the only one to manage more created chances than the Portuguese in Sunday’s lunch-time kick-off.

There certainly seems to be enough potential shown by Leicester in recent performances to suggest that once the fixtures ease up they could be the source of some shrewd investments. Pereira especially has been targetted by many as someone to purchase from Gameweek 27 onwards as it’s Crystal Palace (home), Brighton (home), Watford (away), Fulham (home), Burnley (away) and Bournemouth (home) up next for the Foxes.

“It’s the same feeling after our game against United. Another time today, we made good collective performance, with good quality and good moves. We hurt them, without finding efficiency. It’s a big shame. It was not a fair result, but it’s our fault because we have had a lot of chances since the kick-off. It’s a mixed feeling with the thought that we showed a lot of quality. It’s encouraging. We should have led this game, we should have got back in this game. “We need results to give us good balance.” – Claude Puel

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-3-1-2): Lloris; Rose (Walker-Peters 88′), Vertonghen, Sánchez, Trippier; Skipp (Alderweireld 71′), Winks, Sissoko; Eriksen; Llorente (Wanyama 80′), Son.

Chelsea XI (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Chilwell, Maguire, Evans, R Pereira; Ndidi; Barnes (Okazaki 88′), Maddison, Tieleman, Ghezzal (Iheanacho 72′); D Gray (Vardy 59′).

    Original plan was Sterling to Auba for -4, but looking at City's fixtures after the blank think I would like to keep him now. What should I do instead?

    A. Digne to Pereira
    B. Richarlison to Anderson
    C. Ings to Wood

    1. Greenbackbøøg…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      a

    2. A19
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      A or B, depend on the rest of your defence

      1. HaffNanner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 23 hours ago

        Rest of defence is Robertson, Doherty, AWB and Bednarek

        1. A19
          • 1 Year
          8 days, 23 hours ago

          I'd do B first

    3. KneejerkJoe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      B. But Ideally A and B

    4. HaffNanner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Thanks for the replies. Next decision is Pereria or Kolasinac...

      Fixtures look good, but:
      WHU is 3 days after the EFL cup final
      WAT is 3 days before an important 2nd leg champs league tie, followed by Utd tie 4 days later.
      I feel like away at Bournemouth is the only game he'll get proper minutes in. Probably best the hold on to see champions league 1st leg result and who lined up in the EFL cup final.

    Hazards reaction to a 6-0 defeat or any big Chelsea defeat for that matter over the years speaks volumes about his personality and why he will never make that top tier of players. His body language is just ' meh, oh well. He is a wonderfully gifted footballer who plays with the abandon of the kid in the playground but that is to his detriment as well. Goes AWOL in the champions league in the big games ( the stats bear that out) and when going gets tough at Chelsea he just drops out.Salah is doing now what hazard should have been doing every season from about the age of 25 but other than one truly yexceptional season can we really say he has reached his ill potential for Chelsea in the many years he has been there? The reason he has an Fpl troll status is becauseof this.

    1. HamezMace
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      I think that accusation could be levelled at many Chelsea players though, when they're good they're great, when they're bad, they're awful.

      Hazard
      Willian
      Barkley
      Alonso
      Luiz

      Only players I think that give their all are, Azplicueta, and Kante.

      1. boc610
        • 7 Years
        8 days, 23 hours ago

        Azpi was genuinely. embarrassed and said as much...haz has been at Chelsea for most of his career and for me the word that springs to mind overall with him based on the ability he has is' 'coasting'.

        1. HamezMace
          • 4 Years
          8 days, 23 hours ago

          Yes probably, he would honestly be better at a club like PSG, where he can play at 80% and still look amazing against other teams in the French league, and then just turn it up in the latter stages of the Champions League.

          I can't remember which pundit said it, but they nailed it when they said 'once Chelsea realise they're not going to win the league, they just down tools and stop playing'.

          They know the board will sack the manager first, and then it's a clean slate for the players.

      The top lads have the mental attitude, determination and pure drive to get to the top, Haz seems to be more chill

      That's what separates the winners from the losers at the top, top level. Think Ronaldo or Suarez, they're hungry fellas always working hard always wanting it more

      1. boc610
        • 7 Years
        8 days, 23 hours ago

        Yep totally agree with that. I think technically he probably is more gifted than ronny but is just happy out and hasn't really strived to improve. And that's fine, seems like a guy who you would probably really like if you go to know him but in the critical games like yesterday it works against him.

        1. ...al - Leave your comments…

          Yeah the big stars pop up in the big games, demand the ball and grab the game by the balls. Think of all those brilliant moments in football when one player single handedly changed the game. That Ronaldo overhead kick in the CL against Juve springs to mind. Those are the magical moments that cement the big boys names in the history books

          Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard and all that

  3. A19

    Playing 352 atm, Hazard Sané & Kamara out for:

    A) Auba Puncheon keep Sané
    B) Laca Sterling Puncheon (could soon be priced out with price changes)
    C) Sterling FAnderson Barnes/Rondon

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      Sterling doesn't play 27

      1. A19
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 23 hours ago

        Yeah Laca and Puncheon would come in 26 and Sterling 27

        1. A19
          • 1 Year
          8 days, 23 hours ago

          27 and 28*

    2. CROCosta
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      B > C, not A

  4. tibollom

    What you reckon lads, got 1 FT and 0.9 ITB. What should be my priority, GK?

    Fab, Stek
    Robbo Doherty AWB Bamba Pereira
    Salah Pogba Jota Son Camarasa
    Rash Auba Jimenez

    1. It doesnt really Mata
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 22 hours ago

      I like Newcastle defence so maybe their keeper although he is more expensive than outfield defenders. Schar good option maybe.

      1. It doesnt really Mata
        • 2 Years
        8 days, 22 hours ago

        Saying that don’t West Ham have good fixture this week. If so may as well keep Fab.

        1. Too Many Hits
          8 days, 22 hours ago

          West Ham have great fixtures apart from City next week but Fab will likely get save points.. I would be saving to have 2 FT's for the blanks and doubles since you're fine this week,

          If you want a decent 2nd GK to rotate would look at Ryan and Guita

  5. MGD
    • 2 Years
    8 days, 23 hours ago

    What should i be looking at this GW? -4 is on the table.

    Fab
    Shaw - AWB - Doherty
    Salah - Pogba - F Anderson - Masuaku*
    Rash - Jimenez - Aguero*

    Hamer - Laporte* - Luiz* - Richarlison*

    2,5 ITB.

    Luiz + Richa -> TAA + Mane?

  6. Jacky boy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    8 days, 23 hours ago

    Lamela + rashford to Fanderson + Arnie yes or no?

    Alisson
    Robbo Matip Shaw Jonny Bednarek Pogba Son Lamela
    Niasse Rashford

    Speroni Aguero Sterling KDB
    0.5 itb
    2 FTs

    1. Better Call Salah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      Keep rashy

  7. Hy liverpool
    • 5 Years
    8 days, 23 hours ago

    A. Lascelles
    Or
    B. Bamba

    1. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      A

    2. It doesnt really Mata
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 22 hours ago

      A out of the 2 but may not be best Newcastle choice. He is most nailed but not great threat.

  8. teneighty
    • 4 Years
    8 days, 23 hours ago

    Any Leicester-mids worth bringing in?

    1. HamezMace
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      Maddison is the only one to consider really.
      Although Barnes has looked quite good, but just not the same quality, one to watch for next season.

    2. enrico.palazzo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      Maybe (just maybe) maddison

    3. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 9 Years
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      Maddison if you must but pretty meh

    4. Holteenderinthesky
      8 days, 22 hours ago

      I'm really interested in Barnes. Seems a big attacking threat just needs to get his finishing boots on. Think once the first comes he will stop rushing his chances.

  9. b82rz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    8 days, 23 hours ago

    Those that have Sane, what are you looking to do?
    - keep
    - sell

    if sell, who for? Options for me seem to be Mane, De Bruyne, F Anderson and Fraser.

    I already have Pogba and Son who would be the obvious moves if you didn't have one of them.

    I'm thinking of getting Fraser in with a view to the fixtures ahead, which will free up some cash to upgrade a couple of positions.

    1. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      I think Pep's shown his hand in terms of rating Sterling more highly of the two. It then depends on whether you'd be expecting him to play his strongest team in PL or UCL.

      Mané seems a very good alternative on current form

    2. ViperStripes
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      Fanderson seems a good bet with the fixtures and has better stats than Mane who has got lucky with last 2 goals.

    3. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      Sold for Anderson.

    4. Jellyfish
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 22 hours ago

      I sold for Mane

  10. Bavarian
    • 1 Year
    8 days, 23 hours ago

    How many players are you willing to field in GW31?
    Actually have Salah-Robertson-TAA-Anderson-Fabianski and Pereira...

    1. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 9 Years
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      Just accepting it as a write off. Terrible teams playing and I'd rather have decent lads on my team on the run up to it.

      I'll make an exception for 1-2 players the 2 weeks before it maybe

    2. pingissimus
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      For me it rather depends on Chelsea. If they go out then I’d be wanting something near a full team.

      The other big one I suppose is a Wolves loss which would bring in Arsenal and Wolves assets - but I don’t see that happening really.

      If not and it’s only 4/5 matches then I’d be happy with 8/9 players in the hope of getting a full side out for 33.

    Thoughts on Vardy?

    1. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 9 Years
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      Vaedy and Pereira worth the investment over the next few especially with 31 in mind

      1. ViperStripes
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 days, 23 hours ago

        Pereira definitely, have already used FT to ditch Digne and bring in Pereira.

        Vardy not so sure when we only have 3 striker slots. Wouldn't know who to take out:

        Auba, Firmino, Rashford

        Probably Firmino

        1. ...al - Leave your comments…
          • 9 Years
          8 days, 23 hours ago

          Firm

          Gives you option to double/triple on Mane/Salah/Robertson/TAA

    2. Hy liverpool
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      Very good option imo ... On my watchlist too

    3. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      Avoiding LEI offense. Can be frustrating to own. Vardy got lucky: came on as a sub for a pk that he missed only to get one later for a tap in.

      I'd rather opt for a defender with an attacking threat: Maguire, Chillwell, and Pereira.

    4. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      Thanks all, interesting stuff. My main concern is the restructure I'd have to go through to switch back to a premium striker if it doesn't pay off.

      Thinking of Kun, Shaq, Cedric to Vardy, Mané, Yedlin (or other 4.5)

    5. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 days, 22 hours ago

      I'm not convinced. 8.8 is a lot. Also talk of a rift between him and Puel, which to be fair has been denied, but being dropped then the manager saying he wants to develop other options is enough to put me off.

  12. pingissimus
    8 days, 23 hours ago

    What is Mo’s record like in the big ones?

    Half contemplating a hit to bring in Auba as captain and then a double up in 28 with Kun and Auba. The hit would mean Anderson in.

    One alternative would be to swap out Rashford for Arnie for free. I’m really tempted by differential captain Arnie - provided he plays of course!

  13. Paddington Bear
    • 1 Year
    8 days, 23 hours ago

    Which is better use of FT?

    A) Digne -> Maguire
    B) Rich -> Anderson

    Leaning towards A as I’d be benching B the following week away to City

    1. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 9 Years
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      Pereira instead?

    2. HamezMace
      • 4 Years

      B

    3. poulteren

      Rich price is plummeting

      1. Paddington Bear

        Last nights drop didn’t affect my selling value anyway

  14. Pontus Jansson's Magic…
    • 2 Years
    8 days, 23 hours ago

    Taking a -4, but which move?

    A) Hazard > Auba

    B) Sane > Lacazette

    1. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 9 Years
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      Sane got go before Haz, but both can go tbh

    2. HamezMace
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      I'm confused about how you swap a midfielder, for a striker.

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 days, 22 hours ago

        That's the -4 two trades

        1. HamezMace
          • 4 Years
          8 days, 22 hours ago

          Would make sense for the OP to give us the full picture.

      2. moz_1983
        • 6 Years
        8 days, 22 hours ago

        If he's on a minus 4 he's probably getting rid of a striker as well, just moving funds around.

  15. Reckoner.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    8 days, 23 hours ago

    Just done Sane > Camarasa with the view of switching from 3-5-2 back to 3-4-3 after GW 27

    GW 27 transfers: AWB & Kamara > 4.0 defender & Aguero

    Look like a good plan?

      Wait and see. Quite a difference between PL and MLS, although if you feel like taking a punt it could get you ahead of the curve.
      I'd personally never bring in a player I've never actually seen play.

      1. FPLGeezer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        A cameo off the bench tonight likely for the eye test

    3. FPLGeezer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      See below lol. Could be a great enabler for Auba/Kun and if Palace go out of the cup he will definitely be a target for me.

      apples and pears. The MLS is div 1 standard at best

        He's a young prospect who was clearly too good for it though, theres a reason he's highly rated around the world

          Why didn't Spanish club etc sign him if so highly rated?

            Prem teams have more money to splash around, even newcastle

          Regardless...i wouldnt risk him in FF. He has to win his place first, will take a while to adjust. Go for tried and tested at this point in the season.

            Most tried and tested have failed though. But yes, not going near him.

              Going to have to disagree here. Who has failed that's "tried and tested".....The top 5 scorers in the defender / Midfielder and strikers are all very well known and established names apart from Jiminez and Etheridge. EG The midfield it Salah, Sterling, Hazard, Pogba and Mane.

                Think he means tried and tested have failed, like Morata for example.

                  yea, i realised that but my point is that they havent disappointed! there's one or two players who have been massive disappointments but most of the top players have returned...they're expensive though!

    Waiting for Almiron to become the next bandwagon. Fixtures look good and could be a great differential to jump on early

    Hamer played in goal for Huddersfield at the weekend. Is this likely to continue?
    No guarantee of clean sheets, of course. But at 4.0 could be useful for freeing up funds to invest elsewhere, or for a bench boost week.

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Lossl had flu. Back next game. Get Boruc

    2. pingissimus
      8 days, 21 hours ago

      Go Guaita at 4.2.

      Decent fixture run, first choice and Palace are good for cleans.

  19. Holteenderinthesky
    8 days, 23 hours ago

    Current team for Next week.
    Alisson
    Doherty, Kola, WB, Schindler.
    Salah, Son(C), Anderson(V), Pogba,
    Rashford, Jimenez

    Speroni, Richarlson, Aguero, Digne

    I'm thinking Richarlson>Harvey Barnes and play him over Schindler. Good move?

    1. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 days, 23 hours ago

      Barnes' finishing/end product wasn't up to much yesterday despite getting into great positions. Would personally prefer Madd, Jota, Moutinho or Fraser.

      1. Holteenderinthesky
        8 days, 22 hours ago

        Your right his finishing was awful yesterday. But he was in the right place over and over again which is promising. Can't see him continuing to keep missing big chances, once he gets his first prem goal I think he will stop rushing then. Wolves currently don't play. Ideally want a midfielder under 5.5 for my plans going forward.

    Transferred out Hazard last gw for Son paid off. Anyone looking to bring him in after the bgw?

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 22 hours ago

      Hazard back? Don't think so. Have hold on to him for way too long and getting rid this week.

    2. Nose for baps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      For possible tgw, yes.

    Hey guys, what you reckon ? got 1 FT and 0.9 ITB. What should be my priority, GK?

    Fab, Stek
    Robbo Doherty AWB Bamba Pereira
    Salah Pogba Jota Son Camarasa
    Rash Auba Jimenez

    1. CROCosta

      save

  22. Konstaapeli
    • 2 Years
    8 days, 22 hours ago

    Good day all.

    Hazard + Kamara to F.Anderson + Jimenez for free sound's about right, right? Would give me this for next week.

    Fab
    Robbo - TAA - Doherty
    Salah - Son - Pogba - F.Anderson
    Rashford - Jiminez

    Speroni - Kun - Digne - WB

    Leicester has a fantastic and long run of fixtures now.
    Do you still consider Pereira essential for the period?
    Any other you consider?

    1. Greenbackbøøg…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 22 hours ago

      No leicester player will ever be essential

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 22 hours ago

      Pereira yes. Leicester so unreliable lately don't trust any other

    3. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 days, 22 hours ago

      Far from essential but could do well, and he's fun to own. One of the Leicester mids could also be an option - Maddison, possibly Barnes or Gray.

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 days, 22 hours ago

        Can't trust minutes of the mids

    4. Hktrader88
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 days, 22 hours ago

      I've been planning Digne to Perreira for quite a while, but now I'm not sure. Leicester have good fixtures but don't score a lot. Kolasinac seems to be a similar attacking threat but in a team that scores a lot more goals. I'm sure he would have had a couple of price rises this week if it hadn't have been for the 93rd minute OG. Both teams just as bad at keeping clean sheets.

      My current defence: VVD, Doherty, Shaw, AWB, Digne.

      1. merin

        I've been planning to get Perreira this week for a long time aswell. Not quite sure now though, and not sure who to get him in for... Any suggestions who to ship if I decide to get him?

    Rich+Digne >> Anderson+Periera for a hit the obvious moves here? Would mean benching Kun.

    Kolasinac • Doherty • AWB
    Mané • Salah • Son • Martial • Rich**

    Doherty and Jiminez tonight, plus Yedlin off the bench, should be interesting

    A lot of recommendations for Felipe Anderson on here. Is he passing the eye test? His stats seem a bit underwhelming in recent weeks.

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      People being hopeful like with Rich for weeks on end

      F all else for the price range and ok fixtures apart form City, I guess

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 days, 22 hours ago

        I reckon there are much better options. Martial, Jota or go cheap and push the money elsewhere.

        1. ...al - Leave your comments…
          • 9 Years
          8 days, 22 hours ago

          Yea fair options actually. Jota nice n cheap and martial worth the risk. Only issue is doubling with Jota and Martial with Rashford and Jimenez but they're all performing

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            8 days, 22 hours ago

            Yeah I'd love to bring Martial in, but with Pogba and Rashford already in my team a triple up is probably too much.

    3. HamezMace
      • 4 Years

      Passed the eye test last week against Liverpool.
      Has the best fixture of anyone in GW27 probably.

  29. yuva247

    Who's the best bet to captain for GW27

    Pogba son Salah jota rashford n Jimenez??

    Am looking to go with son

    1. yuva247
      • 1 Year

      Or should I bring in Fanderson n captain him ?

    2. Paddington Bear

        I have aguero but don't want to sell him n buy him back for price difference of 0.2

  30. YouReds

    I see Lejeune (NEW) has played 90 in the last 4 - Is this due to injuries or has he played his way into the first team?
    I'm tempted, with home games against HUD and BUR in the next two (not bad fixtures in general up to WC) and only 4.4....
