Scout Notes

Son, Jesus and Mane on target as Jimenez gets a pre-Gameweek 32 rest

A week of international football came to a conclusion in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

In our final two Scout Notes of the international break, we round up the minutes played by Premier League players for their respective countries and draw attention to any key talking points that may affect Fantasy assets.

This penultimate piece focuses on the friendlies contested yesterday/today, with analysis of the European Championship qualifiers to follow.

Czech Republic 1-3 Brazil

  • Matej Vydra (£5.6m) – 37 minutes
  • Alisson (£6.0m) – 90 minutes
  • Danilo (£5.0m) – 90 minutes
  • Roberto Firmino (£9.2m) – 87 minutes
  • Richarlison (£6.5m) – 63 minutes
  • Gabriel Jesus (£9.9m) – 18 minutes
  • Fabinho (£5.5m) – 3 minutes
  • Felipe Anderson (£7.2m) – 0 minutes
  • Ederson (£5.6m) – 0 minutes

Although Sergio Aguero (£11.8m) has enjoyed a full two weeks off, positional rival Gabriel Jesus (£9.9m) will hardly be suffering from any fatigue issues going into Double Gameweek 32.

The Manchester City striker has only featured for a combined 48 minutes for his country over the international break, while Transatlantic jetlag won’t be an issue given that both of Brazil’s friendlies over the last week were held in Europe.

Jesus again emerged from the bench in the Selecao’s victory in Prague, scoring twice in the dying stages to put the gloss on what had been a hitherto unconvincing performance from Tite’s side.

Jesus just about squeezed a rising shot into an unguarded Czech net to put Brazil 2-1 up on 82 minutes before following up his own saved effort to increase his country’s lead seven minutes later.

The City forward was deployed in a wide-left role after replacing Philippe Coutinho, with his national team manager saying:

He should be very happy with it. He left the box too much on the previous match, we talked among the staff and decided to try him from the flanks, it could provide more chances than overflowing the middle.

I’m happy he had those chances, not only on creating than but also finishing.

Roberto Firmino (£9.2m) played most of this match as Brazil’s lone centre-forward and scored from his only shot of the game, capitalising on a defensive mix-up to prod his country level just after half-time.

Richarlison (£6.5m) was deployed on the right flank and played the first 63 minutes of this encounter, not creating a single chance and registering only one shot – an ambitious 30-yard effort that was blocked.

The Everton winger was also booked for a bad foul.

Alisson (£6.0m) was beaten by a well-taken David Pavelka strike but otherwise didn’t have a great deal to do, aside from saving twice in the space of a few seconds from a Patrik Schick free-kick and Tomas Soucek’s rebound.

After saving Filip Novak’s 35th-minute effort from distance, Alisson didn’t have another stop to make.

Manchester City’s Danilo (£5.0m) played the full game at right-back.

Fabinho (£5.5m) replaced club colleague Firmino for the final three minutes of Tuesday’s friendly, while Felipe Anderson (£7.2m) and Ederson (£5.6m) watched the entire match from the bench.

Burnley’s Matej Vydra (£5.6m) was thrown on as a 53rd-minute substitute for the hosts.

Mexico 4-2 Paraguay

  • Javier Hernandez (£6.1m) – 78 minutes
  • Raul Jimenez (£6.8m) – 0 minutes
  • Miguel Almiron (£6.0m) – 7 minutes
  • Fabian Balbuena (£4.2m) – 0 minutes

There was positive news for owners of Raul Jimenez (£6.8m) as the Wolves striker remained an unused substitute in Mexico’s 4-2 win over Paraguay.

Jimenez still faces a long-haul flight back after this friendly in California, which kicked off at 2am UK time, but his lack of participation is a positive for those considering the mid-price forward for Double Gameweek 32.

Wolves’ 12-goal striker has started every previous Premier League match that followed an international break in 2018/19.

There were possible repercussions for West Ham assets in this six-goal friendly at the Levi’s Stadium, too.

While Fabian Balbuena (£4.2m) sat on the bench throughout, Javier Hernandez (£6.1m) played 78 minutes of this encounter, three-and-a-half days before the Hammers take on Everton.

That could provide a boost to Marko Arnautovic‘s (£6.9m) chances of starting against the Toffees, although the Austrian produced a fairly miserable performance against Huddersfield in Gameweek 31 as his positional rival came off the bench to score a brace.

Hernandez, indeed, was on target again for his country against Paraguay, finishing confidently when clean through on goal to put his nation 3-0 up.

Chicarito had two other efforts from inside the box – one skied, one blocked – without troubling the opposition goalkeeper.

Miguel Almiron (£6.0m) had an eventful seven minutes after emerging from the Paraguay bench in the second half.

The Newcastle United playmaker was bright on his introduction and was on the pitch when his side reduced the arrears to 3-1, only to be shown a straight red card for an horrendous tackle on Mexico’s Jose Vazquez.

Almiron will return to Tyneside in plenty of time for Gameweek 32, with the Magpies not in action until Monday evening.

South Korea 2-1 Colombia

  • Son Heung-min (£8.6m) – 90 minutes
  • Davinson Sanchez (£5.8m) – 90 minutes
  • Yerry Mina (£5.4m) – 43 minutes
  • Jefferson Lerma (£4.5m) – 0 minutes

Having played the full game in South Korea’s 1-0 win over Bolivia last Friday, Son Heung-min (£8.6m) was given another 90-minute run-out in Seoul on Tuesday.

Son caused Colombia’s defence plenty of problems in the first half, firing two shots off target before opening the scoring on 17 minutes with an effort that visiting goalkeeper Ivan Arboleda ought to have kept out.

The Spurs midfielder, again playing up front for his country as he often does at club level, hit the post with an arrowed shot soon after.

Speaking after the game, Son said of his recent struggle for form at international level:

I felt like I was being a distraction to the rest of the team because people kept mentioning my name when talking about the national team. I couldn’t have scored the goal today without the sacrifices of my team-mates.

For my club, I’ve played both as a striker in a two-forward setting and as a winger. No matter where the coach puts me, my job is to do the best I can in that position. I think it’s important for me to keep playing the way I did today. That kind of consistency will help the national team and myself as a player.

Davinson Sanchez (£5.8m) took his international break game-time tally to 180 minutes ahead of Spurs’ Double Gameweek 32 but his centre-back partner Yerry Mina (£5.4m) was withdrawn just before half-time in Korea with what appears to be a hamstring injury.

Jefferson Lerma (£4.5m) was an unused substitute.

Senegal 2-1 Mali

  • Cheikhou Kouyate (£4.7m) – 76 minutes
  • Sadio Mane (£10.0m) – 14 minutes
  • Idrissa Gana Gueye (£4.7m) – 0 minutes

Sadio Mane (£10.0m) emerged as a 76th-minute substitute to inspire Senegal to a 2-1 win over Mali in Dakar.

The Liverpool midfielder, who is the second-most-bought FPL midfielder of Double Gameweek 32 despite only having one fixture, was thrown on with his country trailing 1-0 and played a part in both of the hosts’ goals.

Mane produced a superb dummy and feint to sell two Mali players before firing a deflected shot past the visiting goalkeeper to level the scores up on 87 minutes.

The former Southampton winger then teed up Moussa Konate for a stoppage-time winner following a short corner.

Mane has only blanked in two of the last nine Gameweeks and is still owned by over 30% of Fantasy managers going into this weekend.

Cheikhou Kouyate (£4.7m) played 76 minutes of this encounter but Idrissa Gana Gueye (£4.7m) was an unused substitute.

Ivory Coast 1-0 Liberia

  • Jean Michael Seri (£4.9m) – 7 minutes

Three of the four Premier League-based players called up to the Ivory Coast squad over the international break didn’t feature in the Elephants’ 1-0 win over Liberia on Tuesday.

Wilfried Zaha (£6.9m) had been sent back to London after making a 6,400-mile round-trip without kicking a ball, while Serge Aurier (£5.7m) and Eric Bailly (£5.0m) had picked up injuries in Ivory Coast’s 3-0 win over Rwanda on Saturday and didn’t feature in this latest friendly.

Bailly suffered a blow to the head at the weekend and was substituted as a precaution, while Aurier limped off after 30 minutes with a hamstring strain – the same injury that Zaha is recovering from.

Depending on the severity of the injury, Aurier’s issue could spell good news for Kieran Trippier‘s (£6.0m) chances of featuring in both of Spurs’ Double Gameweek 32 fixtures.

Jeffrey Schlupp (£4.5m) could be the “out of position” beneficiary at Crystal Palace if Zaha fails to recover over the next week.

Fulham’s Jean Michael Seri (£4.9m) came on as an 83rd-minute substitute against Liberia, meanwhile.

Algeria 1-0 Tunisia

  • Riyad Mahrez (£8.2m) – 90 minutes

Riyad Mahrez (£8.2m) lasted the course as Algeria beat Tunisia 1-0 on Tuesday afternoon.

The Manchester City winger lined up in the same 4-3-3 formation that he has become accustomed to at club level and won the decisive 70th-minute penalty that team-mate Baghdad Bounedjah converted.

Mahrez went close to scoring in the first half with a shot that crept wide, while team-mate Aissa Mandi headed over his outswinging free-kick delivery.

The former Leicester midfielder, who wasn’t used in Algeria’s draw with the Gambia on Friday, was handed the man of the match award for this latest display.

Morocco 0-1 Argentina

  • Romain Saiss (£4.2m) – 90 minutes
  • Roberto Pereyra (£6.0m) – 90 minutes
  • Juan Foyth (£5.0m) – 0 minutes
  • Manuel Lanzini (£6.4m) – 0 minutes

Two Premier League players who are in action twice in Double Gameweek 32 were given 90-minute run-outs in Tanger.

Romain Saiss (£4.2m) played the full game at centre-back for the hosts, while Roberto Pereyra (£6.0m) was taken off in injury time by Argentina.

The Watford winger played on the right flank in North Africa, the opposite wing to where he usually plies his trade at club level, registering one shot and two key passes.

Saiss, who looks set to feature in at least one of Wolves’ matches in Gameweek 32 with Ryan Bennett (£4.1m) suspended, produced a brilliant last-ditch tackle to deny Argentina a certain goal in the 57th minute.

Juan Foyth (£5.0m) and Manuel Lanzini (£6.4m) were unused substitutes for the visitors, meanwhile.

Nigeria 1-0 Egypt

  • Leon Balogun (£4.2m) – 90 minutes
  • Wilfred Ndidi (£4.9m) – 90 minutes
  • Alex Iwobi (£5.4m) – 73 minutes
  • Mohamed Elneny (£4.2m) – 90 minutes

There were four Premier League players on show in Asaba on Tuesday for the friendly between Nigeria and Egypt – though Mohamed Salah (£13.3m), of course, wasn’t among them after being handed the international break off.

Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi (£5.4m) and Mohamed Elneny (£4.2m) lined up on either side, with a weak shot on target from the Gunners’ Nigerian midfielder the closest he came to scoring.

Brighton’s back-up centre-back Leon Balogun (£4.2m) impressed in defence and played the full 90 minutes, as did Leicester City’s defensive midfielder Wilfred Ndidi (£4.9m).

USA 1-1 Chile

  • DeAndre Yedlin (£4.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Tim Ream (£4.2m) – 90 minutes

DeAndre Yedlin (£4.5m) and Tim Ream (£4.2m) both played 90 minutes at full-back for the United States in their 1-1 draw with Chile in Texas.

While Yedlin isn’t in action until Monday evening for his club, Ream’s Fulham side face Manchester City in the early kick-off on Saturday afternoon.

Honduras 0-0 Ecuador

  • Antonio Valencia (£6.4m) – 0 minutes

Antonio Valencia (£6.4m) was an unused substitute as his country drew 0-0 with Honduras in New Jersey in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

The veteran Manchester United defender played 90 minutes of Ecuador’s previous friendly against the USA last week.

      Very good

      It’s ok

  2. BulgarianOwls
    • 1 Year

    Laporte and Bats or Bilva and Schlupp

    1. kennethrhcp

      L&B

    2. MINUS FOUR
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Can you turn it into Dilva and Schlupp by losing 1m somewhere else? Maybe your GK? If yes, I would do that.

  3. kennethrhcp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 26 days ago

    all this Lukaku talk... just wait on the pressers

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Yep the pressers will change everything

      1. kennethrhcp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        haha, well they'll give a clearer picture & not just rumour

  4. TheDragon
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 26 days ago

    Ederson
    Luiz, Azpi, Smalling, Schlupp
    Sterling, Hazard, Pogba
    Aguero, Rashford, Jimenez

    I’m happy with Schlupp over Mili. I’ve got £2.4m in the bank and am interested in Higuaín (but that means removing a Chelsea defender... for who?) and also Batshuayi.

    Thoughts? I’ve made my peace with not having Kane. Given my SV he imbalances my teamt too much

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶n̶e̶e̶d̶ ̶K̶a̶n̶e̶!̶

      Nice. only difference too mine is you have Ederson and I have DSilva.

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        oh and I don't have Smalling(Lindelof) and I have Schlup over Luiz and Kepa

      2. TheDragon
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Thanks! Very tempted to try to get Higuaín but it’s probably a trap

  5. Wolves Ay We
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 26 days ago

    Be honest, if you could afford Kane, you would have him in your FH team, wouldn't you?

    1. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 26 days ago

      If we had unlimited money and I didn’t have to change any other players in my team then yes, but that’s not how it works

    2. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Of course but you can’t just discount the fact he costs 12.5m. You clearly have to sacrifice elsewhere

    3. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      yep!

    4. Moorinho
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      No

      I will get him for gw34 onwards though

    5. Amey
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Absolutely
      I'm thinking about getting him now tbh. Need some confirmation on Zaha playing for that. Too many options opened now with Lukaku possible absence

      1. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Lukaku out means Aguero and Rashford are in.

        Last spot is for Kane, Higuain or Batshuayi depending on rest of the XI.

        Would love Kane but it’s weakening my def too much, and not sure he will do better than Higuain. Higuain just need to score one goal in each game to match Kane’s likely output...

    6. AuFeld
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      I did.

    7. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 26 days ago

      I'm going with Kane. It's boiled down to a straight choice between him and Hazard, and on current form I prefer Kane all day long even with the fixtures

      1. TheDragon
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 26 days ago

        That’s very brave

    8. Maddamotha
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      I can afford him. Everyone can.

    9. donkey73
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      I started the FH lineup with him and worked my way down from there.
      He is a must have

      1. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Of course he is not a « must have ».

  6. theodosios
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 26 days ago

    Since Lukaku is out, anyone thinking about good old trap called Lingard?

  7. Amey
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 26 days ago

    Kane OR Higuain

    Who do we think will score more this gw ??
    With Lukaku apparently out, money left is causing too many issues 😀

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Kane

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Cheers mate

    2. No Luck
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      I'm very tempted by Higuain but Kane feels safer for some reason

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Yeah.
        Kane is tempting. Higuain being 1.9m cheap allows better defense though. That's the deal imo kane + light defense OR Higuain + Strong defense

    3. AuFeld
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Kane. PK's are worth the +$2,5m

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Ha ha
        Absolutely.

  8. gryffsonofarthur
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 26 days ago

    Wan-Bissaka or Tomkins?

    Laporte/Kepa or Luiz/Ederson ?

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      AWB if fit
      Luiz/Ederson

  9. Red Rock
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 26 days ago

    Any thoughts on this 3-5-2?

    Kepa
    Duffy Schlupp Lindelhoff
    Sterling Sane Hazard Martial Hudson-Odoi
    Aguero Kane

    1. tsintisin
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Downgrade kane upgrade CHO and defence

    2. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Hudson Odoi has scored a total of 6 points this season. Not in a single game but the whole 31 game weeks.

      1. Red Rock
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Big punt i know, I could downgrade Sane to D. Silva and bring in another defender (double up on Palace).

        1. TheDragon
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 26 days ago

          It’s the price you pay for having Kane

          1. Red Rock
            • 2 Years
            6 months, 26 days ago

            Its been tricky taking him out, I know my team looks better structurally without but i'm just not convinced that Rashford + Son will perform better than Kane.

            United vs Watford/Wolves could be goalless

  10. No Luck
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 26 days ago

    I want all three:

    Kane, Aguero, Higuain. Who to drop?

    1. No Luck
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Obviously not dropping Aguero so between Kane and Higuain

      1. Tshelby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Kane for me just look at the Chelsea fixtures

      2. FPL Pillars
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Glad to hear it hah! I would make the choice after pressers obviously might be some crumbs of information we can nibble on.

    2. olidooley
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Kane dropped for me....Pool away + price

    3. #FPLBhuna
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      kane.

      not worth the money given the fixtures.

    4. tsintisin
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Kane

    5. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Hig - Giroud could start v BHA

      1. Tshelby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Why could he start? He rarely ever starts so don't know why he would now?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 26 days ago

          Higuain hasn't been tearing up trees at Chelsea and Giroud has done well when he has played in Europe and for France. Not beyond the realms of possibility.

          1. Tshelby
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            6 months, 26 days ago

            Sure it could happen but Hudson Odoi has also been playing very good in Europe and never started in the PL. Just think Sarri is to stubborn to play Giroud imo

      2. #FPLBhuna
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        that's just ridiculous speculation

        why would he start him vs BHA?

        what reason do you have to suggest it?

        none.

        1. kennethrhcp
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          6 months, 26 days ago

          isn't most opinions on here just speculation?

          I'm not agreeing with nor disagreeing with Miguel here btw... just because his opinion is different doesnt mean it's ridiculous!

        2. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 26 days ago

          I think all we write here is speculation, as I said above Giroud has done well recently in the games he has played and if Higuain continues to disappoint he could be benched.

          1. onceuponatyne
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            6 months, 26 days ago

            I can see Giroud starting one of them, as well as Hudson-Odoi.

  11. tsintisin
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 26 days ago

    A) Laporte, Lindelöf, Schlupp, Higuain
    B) Azpi, Smalling, Duffy, Dilva

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      A

  12. #FPLBhuna
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    a) duffy + foster
    b) ryan + shaw/lindelof

    1. kennethrhcp

      B with Lind

  13. simong1

    Would appreciate any advice on my FH team below. Thanks!

    Ederson
    Azpi - Lindelof - AWB

    Batsman - Rashford - Aguero

  14. HIT ME!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Been settled on team A for a while but more tinkering as usual and I like team B.

    Which one do you prefer? Sane worth a punt?

    A)
    EDERSON
    AZPI LUIZ Lindelöf Schlupp
    Sterling Hazard Pogba
    Kane Agüero RASHFORD

    B)
    KEPA
    Lindelöf DUFFY Schlupp
    Sterling Hazard SANE Pogba
    Kane Agüero JIMENEZ

        Probably the better one I guess IF Rashford confirmed fully fit

      did you feel that?

          wrong answer, you were meant to say

          "feel what"

          so I could reply, I hit you

          lol 🙂

            Thought you were referring to the Sane question xD

    New FH team. 0.2 itb.

    Ederson
    Azpi Lindelof Smalling
    Pogba Sterling(C) Son Hazard Deulofeu
    Kun Higuain

    Out of 10? (Took out Jiminez for Deulofeu, as worried about Jimy's game time). Tks

    1. HIT ME!

      It's good. Prefer Jimenez personally.

  16. gryffsonofarthur

    Best United option - Smalling or Lindelof?

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      6 months, 26 days ago

      pure guessing... my guess Lind

  17. L S P

    Anyone on FH thinking of going without Pogba and/or Rashford? Form certainly says yes but ownership obviously says no.

    Is it just fear or do people genuinely think they'll do well?

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Pogba in FH for sure... fear plays a part but on his day can be great

      Rash will be a maybe for me

  18. Dave Dreamer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    A. Son & Linderlof

    B. Trippier & Martial

    I'm starting to over think it.

    1. HIT ME!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      A. B is too risky.

  19. gryffsonofarthur

    Is a palace defensive double up a good idea, or should I hedge my bets and get 1 Brighton, 1 palace defender?

    Thoughts on my FH?

    Kepa
    Smalling Azpi Schlupp
    Pogba Haz Sterling Dilva
    Aguero Rash Bats

    1. Tigers Time
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Nicely balanced team - out of curiosity why smalling instead of Lindelof?

  21. We Will Klopp you
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 26 days ago

    A) Shlupp, Mili and jimi
    B) linde, Mili and batshayi
    C) Shlupp, townsend & rashy

    No other United def but I have pogba re attacking options.

    1. Tigers Time
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      C) not keen on Mili

    2. HIT ME!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      C

    This free hit seems to be a lot of deciding wether to go for the safe/boring play both games players or the slightly better but risk of rest and rotation/injury risk players.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Especially with the third City option.

    2. HIT ME!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Or a combination of both!

      1. gryffsonofarthur
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Talking about factors in those 50/50 calls

  23. gryffsonofarthur
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 26 days ago

    AWB
    Luiz
    Rashford
    Higuin
    Delofeou
    Jota
    Jiminez

    These guys all seem to carry the risk of missing time in the DGW.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      Think Laporte is safe?

      1. gryffsonofarthur
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Currently embroiled in the turmoil that is Kepa/Laporte

      2. gryffsonofarthur
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Versus Ederson/Luiz.

        Not sure which defender is the the more nailed option for the DGW

        1. TheDragon
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 26 days ago

          Why are people so worried about Luiz minutes?

          1. HamezMace
            • 5 Years

            I'd also like to know this.

        2. Pras Scott Talent
          • 7 Years
          6 months, 26 days ago

          The holy grail is Ederson / Azpi

  24. DonGrumble
    6 months, 26 days ago

    Is Otamendi an option instead of Laporte? or should i stay safe

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 26 days ago

      All 4 CBs in training so stay safe with Laporte or Ederson

    A) Kepa Laporte Bats
    B)Kepa Bilva Schlupp
    C) Foster Dilva Schlupp

  26. pingissimus

    6 months, 26 days ago

    Currently on

    Lloris
    Schlupp Azpi Duffy
    Sterling Hazard Pogba Dilva
    Kun Bat Rashford

    Some cash to spare - I even have a bench! Dislike triple United, don’t want double Chelsea defence and fixed on Dilva over defence.

    Very tempted by Townsend and Jim and flirting with Martial

    Think I’ve stumbled upon the greatest GW34 wildcard team. There will be no RMT..... mwahahaha.

  28. olidooley
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 26 days ago

    Hey guys....A or B one here...

    A) Luiz, Rashford, Zaha

    B) Schlupp, Higuaín, Batshuayi

  29. TRHero
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Planning to use BB chip
    No more FT and 2.9 in the bank.

    Guaita Button
    Robertson Luiz Doherty Periera Bednarek
    Sterling (C) Sane Pogba Brooks Hojbejerg
    Jimenez Rashford Higuaine

    1. Button + Robbo/Doherty to Kepa + Laporte
    2. Button + Higuaine to Ryan/Foster + Aguero

    Thoughts?
