Scout Notes

Doubts remain over United and Chelsea assets for season run-in

Manchester United and Chelsea both have two “blue” fixtures on our Season Ticker in Gameweeks 37 and 38.

Chelsea’s matches against mid-table Watford and – especially – Leicester City are far from straightforward, of course, but United face two clubs in the bottom three in the form of Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City.

Any Fantasy managers considering players from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Maurizio Sarri’s sides would have had a keen eye on Sunday’s meeting at Old Trafford but, save for a promising early start from the Red Devils, there wasn’t a great deal to get excited about as the two Champions League-chasing clubs played out a 1-1 draw in the final match of Gameweek 36.

United’s two remaining fixtures may be reason enough to invest in their players, while Chelsea – far better at home in recent times – next face a Watford side at Stamford Bridge that has conceded more “big chances” than any other Premier League team in 2019.

It is probably fair to say that the primary reason we as Fantasy managers would consider players from either Chelsea or (particularly) United would be less about their own qualities and more to do with the calibre of their upcoming opponents.

We reflect on the action from the Sunday tea-time game in our Scout Notes below and round up the latest injury news.

Manchester United 1-1 Chelsea

  • Goals: Juan Mata (£6.1m) | Marcos Alonso (£6.2m)
  • Assists: Luke Shaw (£5.0m) | Antonio Rudiger (£5.9m)

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said “inconsistency” and tiredness were factors as his side delivered a mixed display in their 1-1 draw with Chelsea.

United came racing out of the blocks in the first quarter of the game, pressing Chelsea high up the pitch and taking an early lead as they briefly resembled the side that excelled in Solskjaer’s ‘honeymoon period’.

The Red Devils were very clearly leggy in the second half, however, with perhaps the physical exertions of Double Gameweek 35 and the demands of their manager’s high-intensity tactics catching up with them.

The concession of an equaliser to Chelsea just before the interval also seemed to be a hammer blow from a confidence point of view.

Reflecting on the game, Solskjaer said:

Today, I was very happy with the start, maybe it’s been inconsistency because we were flying in the first half, creating chances, on the front foot, play and run, and I think everyone was very pleased with the performance.

Of course, we’re disappointed to come in at half-time with a draw. The mood in the dressing room was very good, backing each other, said the right things.

Second half, it was just a scrappy game. Never got the quality from either team, we certainly didn’t get the intensity and quality in our pressing and the ball suddenly started to go two or three touches rather than one or two in the first half.

We were tired towards the end of the game, that’s for sure. We’ve addressed that issue before, we have just got to take one step at a time.

And there were periods today you feel when Scotty [McTominay] comes on we get those legs again, legs going, and we depend on everyone being fresh and fit.

There was a 40-minute period in the second half where United didn’t register a single shot on goal, before substitute Marcos Rojo (£4.9m) forced Pedro (£6.2m) into a goalline clearance in injury time.

Romelu Lukaku (£10.7m) epitomised United’s display: powerful and pacy in the opening exchanges but already flagging after half an hour.

The positives for United is that they will face far less taxing tests in the form of Huddersfield and Cardiff and, following the three-game week they have just endured, now have a seven-day break before they take on the rock-bottom Terriers.

The “Huddersfield Effect” can’t be underestimated, while a deflated Cardiff could very well be relegated by the time they entertain United in Gameweek 38.

Certainly, there were positive signs in the first half of Sunday’s match at Old Trafford.

Juan Mata‘s (£6.1m) goal was beautifully crafted by Paul Pogba (£8.5m), Lukaku and Luke Shaw (£5.0m), while Lukaku had earlier spurned another excellent opportunity when played through by the United left-back and Eric Bailly (£5.0m) nodded an Ashley Young (£5.7m) corner inches wide on 28 minutes.

Shaw is someone we had picked out in a top 10k differentials piece yesterday, with United next up against the two lowest-scoring teams in the top flight.

The full-back has shown he can supplement (or compensate for a lack of) clean sheet points with occasional attacking returns this season and his assist for Mata’s goal was his fifth of 2018/19.

The early “big chance” he created for Lukaku helped him to maximum bonus yesterday, despite United being deprived of a clean sheet for the ninth Premier League match in a row.

David de Gea (£5.7m) was again culpable for the goal that United conceded, spilling Antonio Rudiger‘s (£5.9m) shot and unable to stop Marcos Alonso (£6.2m) from converting the loose ball.

Asked about his under-fire goalkeeper after the game, Solskjaer said:

He’s been in the spotlight for the right reasons for so long and now he’s going through a period where he probably feels he could have done better.

I don’t have any worries about him because he’s a strong character.

I’ll sit down and speak to David as I’ve done when he’s played well. He’s not the reason why we’re in the sixth position at the moment.

You cannot say there is any complacency, David is not the type to sit down and be complacent. He is a competitor and he wants to be the best.

David knows he could have done better with the goal, there’s no reason hiding that, but there’s no chance any of us will point fingers because he’s saved us so many times.

Marcus Rashford‘s (£7.3m) barren run continued and the England striker has only one attacking return in the last 11 Gameweeks.

Paired alongside Lukaku in a 4-4-2 diamond, Rashford had more penalty box touches than anyone on show but his one shot on goal was an ambitious 30-yard effort from distance.

The England striker had the lowest pass completion rate of any starting outfield player yesterday and the belief that he can, at times, be selfish in possession would only have gained traction yesterday.

Solskjaer revealed that Rashford had been struggling with a shoulder injury before the game and he was indeed withdrawn just after the hour mark, with the Norwegian saying:

Rashy’s struggled with his shoulder and he came through an hour, but couldn’t do more.

Bailly was also helped from the field with a knee injury and Solskjaer said of the Ivorian defender’s condition:

He will need a scan tomorrow but I don’t think it is the worst knee injury you can have. He will be out for the rest of the season, I don’t think we will see him again before next season.

Pogba began the match on the left-hand side of the midfield diamond and was better than he had been in recent weeks but his deeper role continues to be a deterrent from a Fantasy perspective – the Frenchman didn’t register a single shot or key pass and touched the ball just once in the Chelsea box.

Pogba now averages 3.3 FPL points per match in the last ten Gameweeks and that figure would be even worse were it not for the two goals he scored from the penalty spot against West Ham.

Pogba’s penalty-taking responsibility is still worth considering for Gameweeks 37 and 38, however: Huddersfield and Cardiff have conceded 15 spot-kicks between them this season.

This was another Chelsea away performance that won’t live long in the memory, with the Blues having just three shots on target – two of which led to their goal.

Gonzalo Higuain‘s (£9.0m) stoppage-time “big chance” was the only other time that de Gea was called into action.

Higuain, whose only attacking returns have come against sides in the bottom six, disappointed again and frustrated by repeatedly getting caught offside.

The injured Callum Hudson-Odoi (£4.2m) and the benched Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.2m) were arguably missed, with Willian (£7.1m) and Mateo Kovacic (£5.7m) offering little of note in their stead.

Willian was one of two Chelsea players to be substituted with an injury, with Rudiger – just back from a knee problem – also limping off.

Maurizio Sarri said of his injured players:

I think the most serious situation is Rudiger, with his knee. Willian at the moment is in trouble but I think it is only a knock so we can try to recover him. For the next match in the Europa League, probably Antonio will be out.

The stats may show that Chelsea had more than twice as many shots as United but there were few clear-cut opportunities within them and half came from outside the area.

Sarri admitted that his side had struggled in the first half, saying:

If I look at the first 20 minutes I am very happy [with a point], but if I look at the last minute when we had the goal opportunity, the most important in the second half, I am not happy.

But to play here in Manchester against United I think is very difficult for us and every team. They played very well in the first 25 minutes, we were in trouble. We were in trouble as we did not have the right distances between the striker, Higuain, and the midfielders. We were in trouble to cover the ball to the defenders. The ball was always a free ball, and they are really very happy when they are dangerous when they can have space and attack behind the line.

We were better in the last part of the first half and better in the second half and we didn’t risk anything in the second half, except for the corner in the last five minutes.

A draw is not too important for us as we need to win the last two matches, otherwise, we are at risk with the goal difference I think.

The fit-again Alonso scored his first goal since Gameweek 2 but owners of Leicester assets will be encouraged by Chelsea’s overall defensive deficiencies ahead of their meeting at the King Power Stadium in Gameweek 38: this was the eighth successive away league game in which they have failed to keep a clean sheet.

With Chelsea in Europa League semi-final action this week and next, it will be also interesting to monitor Sarri’s team selections in Gameweeks 37 and 38.

Whether the Blues’ boss would even consider handing Eden Hazard (£10.9m) a breather against Watford remains to be seen, with a top-four place not yet secure but with the visit of the Hornets falling in between that double-header against Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Belgian was not at his scintillating best yesterday but much of Chelsea’s play flowed through Hazard and he had far more touches in the final third (49) than any other player at Old Trafford.

Hazard has no goals and one assist in his last nine Premier League appearances on the road and his remaining Fantasy appeal would be largely for Gameweek 37, given that Chelsea are away at in-form Leicester on the final day.

Speaking of Hazard and his future, Sarri said:

I don’t know anything new at the moment. But in this moment for me, it is not really very important. I am very happy with Eden, he is playing very well and he fights on the pitch, so I am really very happy. As I say in every press conference, I want to respect his decision.

Manchester United XI (4-1-2-1-2): De Gea; Young, Bailly (Rojo 70′), Lindelof, Shaw; Herrera; Pogba, Matic; Mata (McTominay 80′) Lukaku, Rashford (Sanchez 65′)

Chelsea XI (4-3-3): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Rudiger (Christensen 64′), Luiz, Alonso; Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic (Loftus-Cheek 75′), Hazard, Higuain, Willian (Pedro 83′).

    Dean Henderson to be next season's Heaton/Pope? Been sensational this season, think he'll be good with the baps. Only downside is he will miss games vs parent club but those aren't hard to navigate.

      Probably get Ederson if he is £5.5m again. Nailed City defensive asset.

        Waste of a City asset. The gap between premium defs and bargain defs is far bigger than the gap between premium GKs and bargain GKs.

        1. Limited & Mediocre Mana…
          • 3 Years

          Correct

          Agreed

          For instance Guaita has scored 76 points since debut in gw 17 and by my count Ederson has got 85 in the same spell.

      Sheffield Utd play 3 at the back who are very much involved in their build up play and make plenty of passes, so maybe they would hog the bonus more when Utd keep clean sheets.

    Anyone heard anything substantial on the potential Salah injury?

    1. Mo Mané Mo Problems
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Internet says minor knock had to stop training - rumour.

      Sounds like nothing.

      Guess he could aggravate 'it' (potentially non-injury) during Barca match and miss the weekend, but I wouldn't be worried.

      The fixtures are kind to Liverpool owners: if they played after City this weekend, then I wouldn't have been surprised if Klopp rested players with Barca 2nd leg in mind (if they have a chance of winning still..i.e. less than 2-0 first leg).

      1. Mo Mané Mo Problems

        if city had beaten Leicester ahead of the Pool match....i.e. title won.

  3. shearer9

    Tripp to Shaw a good idea when chasing? Tripp's lack of starts have been infuriating

    1. The Gambler.
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Tripp to anyone really, just a nightmare to own

    2. captainjilflex
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      The thing is with Trippier if he plays he is always likely to score well. I probably won’t be wasting a transfer on him this late in the season, just make sure I have had a decent sub which luckily I have for his no shows so far.

      1. shearer9
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Yeah annoyingly I had Bednarek (1 pt) come in for him this week with Valery (4 pts) staying on the bench, but Valery could do well this week vs West Ham. I guess I'll save my FT.

        1. captainjilflex
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 3 days ago

          I just think it’s a waste making defensive transfers now. Need goals goals goals lol.

          1. shearer9
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 3 days ago

            Whom from my attack would you sell though? I think they could all do well

  4. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Best forward from:

    A) Rashford (hud, CAR) poor form and injury worries but great fixtures
    B) Wilson (TOT, cpa) good form, minutes and stats but trickier fixtures
    C) Zaha (car, BOU) good fixtures but not amazing stats and struggles for BPS

    Between A and B I think

    1. captainjilflex
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      I wouldn’t touch Rashford. He is so out of form and flagged. At least with Pogba you have the fall back of pens. I’d say between B and C but it’s tough as they both have little or nothing to play for.

    2. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 3 days ago

      B and C are playing for potential moves to so called bigger clubs.

      Actually maybe A Is also auditioning for a move to a bigger club?

  5. Bubz

    2 GWs ago I was sat at 48k and asked on here if you think I can still make top 10k. The response was it’s very unlikely. Now at 15k bitchezz lets do this 😎 😆

    1. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      It's still unlikely IMO

      1. Mo Mané Mo Problems
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Bit harsh Diesel.

        It's only 20 points from 15k to 10k.

        I'd say he has a shout. Need 2 fairly decent weeks.

        1. Jarvish Scott Talent
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 3 days ago

          Depends what your definition of unlikely is - pretty much no-one has any chips left and most people have similar teams so going to be tough to make big gains. Obviously still a chance, but certainly less than 50/50.

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

      169k in gw 34, now 60k.
      My target is top 50k.

      Hope your plan work out.

      1. Nigel Knows
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 3 days ago

        I was 100k a few weeks ago. I will now settle for top 6m

    3. Super Saints
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Pretty much the same as me, sat at 15k now but Sterling Pogba and Son are really letting me down,

    4. Goodnight Kiwi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      GW28 I was 333,904
      Now: 37,470

  6. unitednations
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 3 days ago

    Which combo would you prefer:

    A: Shaw (in gw37) + King/Mitro (in gw38)
    B: Jwp (in gw37) + King/Mitro (in gw38)
    C: Arnie (gw37 + Wilson/Zaha (gw38) (-4)

  7. GianniBanani
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Any player (despite Vardy, but tricky fixtures) convinced someone to make him transfer goal? Im talking about buying here ofc

  8. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 3 days ago

    Anyone (particularly firmino or laca owners) considering lukaku for Huddersfield?

    1. Geoff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      I'm looking at Pogba as my United pick. Don't love Lukaku

  9. Duffy Dunk
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 3 days ago

    Hazard, Pogba, Rashford are transfer targets, but with Chelsea in Europa league semis and ManUtd in bad form, I just don't know if they're worth it.

  10. KingOllie
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 3 days ago

    Who scores more in last 2 fixtures?

    a) Lloris (bou, EVE) + Pogba (hud, CAR)
    b) Gunn (whm, HUD) + Hazard (WAT, lei) -4

    Could swap Gunn with Guaita also

    1. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      A

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

      A

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

      Keepers should score about the same, so comes down to pogba or hazard -4. I'd go for Hazard tbh.

  11. cheeky moses
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 3 days ago

    I wanna bring in a defender for last 2 GW. Budget 5.4. Any suggestions?

    1. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Shaw easily

      1. Tshelby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Really?

        1. Team Cruel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          9 months, 3 days ago

          Who is better at that price? 3 assists in his last 6 games. 5 baps in his last 4 games. Hudds/Cardiff don't score and concede bucketloads.

          1. Tshelby
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            9 months, 3 days ago

            United also seems to concede bucketloads atm? The stats do back him as a great choice might consider him myself.

    2. scubasmithy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      PVA

    3. Pukki Party

      PVA?

    Back to back 100+ GW score really amazed!
    But why did I ever let Vardy go..

    Any suggestions for this lot?

    2FT
    0.0 ITB

    Lloris, Foster
    Kolasinac, TAA, Doherty, Valery, Duffy
    Son, Moura, Salah, Sterling, Deulofeu
    Kun, Jimenez, Long

    1. HamezMace
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      I would look at doing something like downgrading Moura to bench fodder, and upgrading Long to someone like Wilson, Zaha, Rashford

      1. tokara
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        long play huddlefield in gw38

        1. HamezMace
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 3 days ago

          Rashford plays Huddersfield in 37, and Cardiff in 38.
          Zaha has Cardiff, and Bournemouth.

          I'd prefer either of them over Long to be honest.

          1. Tshelby
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            9 months, 3 days ago

            Thanks Hamez! Thinking about doing something like that. Depends on the Spurs performance tomorrow

  13. Halftime
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 3 days ago

    Vardy is in great form but with two difficult fixtures is it worth holding?

    1. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Tempted by Rashford's fixtures but Vardy's form may be more important.

      1. Halftime
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Might hold, I see he got an assist against City earlier in the season so might get something

  14. gellinmagellan

    Foster Ryan
    Duffy Robertson Bennett Vertonghen Bednarek
    Mane Sterling Son Eriksen Hojbjerg
    Jimenez Aguero Rondon
    2 FTs 0.1 ITB
    I can do Eriksen > Salah Aguero > Vardy and Vertonghen > AWB but that seems like destroying the entire team just to get Salah in. Or I keep faith in Eriksen, especially since its BOU. What should I be doing?

    1. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Don't sell Aguero for sure so maybe just play without Salah

      1. gellinmagellan
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Yeah, that's what I was thinking :/ Any suggestions on what to do with the 2 FTs?

        1. Tshelby
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 3 days ago

          Something with Eriksen and Rondon?

    2. KingOllie
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Eriksen to Pogba,

      Rondon to Zaha

  15. Disco Stu
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 3 days ago

    Best replacement for KDB? Have 11.7 to spend but would possibly like to leave a little in the bank to upgrade a defender

    1. Ruinenlust
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Hazard

    2. poulteren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      depends on who you already have?

      1. Disco Stu
        • 7 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Other middies are

        Mane/Son/Moura/Jota

    3. pingissimus

      Potential double swoop for Sterling and Bilva over two weeks from KdB and Son if you have the City spots spare?

      If not, Hazard.

        Sterling rested? I doubt it very much.

          No, Haz and Lacca..

            equally unlikely?

            Why would hazard be rested at his last EPL home game for chelsea??

              Europa League... Laca and Hazard have both been rested for it plenty of times this season?

                time to step away from the stats and look at the context of the games.

    Chasing 50 points on ML leader, and other than me having Salah and him with Sterling, we're pretty template, so looking at differentials...

    Thoughts on Deulofeu + Dunk => Shaw + Camarasa ?

    1. poulteren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      with all due respoect....50 points aint happening...unless you have some chips and he doesnt

      1. goldengove
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Yeah, it's a bit of a long shot, but pulled back 33 points last week (TC)

    2. JohnRoss
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Even with a tough came coming up, Deu is exactly the type of differential you need possibly. Cheap and capable of 15 points+ on a good day. I would keep him for west ham

    3. goldengove
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Cheers both... I will think on this...

    4. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Those aren't the sort of players to pull round a 50pt deficit. I think the high ceiling diffs to target in the last few GWs are Zaha, Wilson, Mili, PVA, Pogba & the like.

          • 3 Years

          Maybe Duffy to 6.0m defender? Laporte? Just a thought.

    Ryan
    Trent, Virgil, Doherty

    Aguero, Jimenez, Wilson

    Foster, Redmond, Duffy, Dunk
    Bank 0.0m, 1FT

  20. Scotty B

    De Gea
    Doherty VVD Bednarek
    Salah Richarlison Son Mane
    Rondon Wilson Jimenez

    Gunn Babel Cathcart Dunk

    4.4m ITB & 1 FT

    Which one would you do next week?
    A Rondon > Lacazette
    B Wilson > Aubamayang
    C Son > Sterling
    D Wilson > Lukaku
    E Rondon > Rashford

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

      C to Sterling or Haz as differential

      1. Scotty B
        • 7 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Lukaku (c) Would be an even bigger differential v Huddersfield & Cardiff

        1. Super Saints
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 3 days ago

          Wilson will comfortably outscore Kaku IMO

  21. JohnRoss
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    What I like about this part of the season is nursing my team over the line and not having to worry about a couple of passengers hitching a lift...

    Who do you think will be top scorer in GW37? Jimenez? Hazard? Other?

    1. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Kun

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

      Hazard for me

    Pulled back 60 points and now 20 points off 3rd place in my money league (around £300 for third) which was looking unachievable

    Lloris
    Robbo. Doherty. Duffy
    Salah. Mane. Son. Jota. JWP
    Kun. Jiminez

    Foster. Ings. Bednarek. Dunk

    A) Son > Pog
    B) Mane & Lloris > Haz & Guita (-4)
    C) Duffy > AWB
    D) Save

    1. KingOllie
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Im stuck between a or b for myself.

      I think A is sensible but Hazard could go off on his last 2 games for chelsea

      1. fridge
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Yeah me too, just slightly concerned Bournemouth vs spurs could be a goal fest

  25. Tmel

    Best one week punts for GW37?

    1. KingOllie
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Im eyeing up Luke Shaw..

      But Pogba, Hazard, Zaha, Rashford, Arsenal players

  26. SPorting
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 3 days ago

    Dunk, Llorente -> Shaw, Long?

    1. SPorting
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Sure, why not?

      I mean, it’s not like anyone else on here could give better advice.

    What's the chances of Eriksen being rested?

    Eriksen > Pogba worth it?

      • 6 Years

      Laporte, Robertson

        This

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Laporte over Robbo just. Better cs odds imo over greater chance of attacking returns.

  29. Would Ed Woodward
    • 1 Year

    Do you think Liverpool will keep a cleansheet at Newcastle?

    1. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      I’d say yes, TAA and Robbo owner

    2. Ivor Mac
        9 months, 3 days ago

        I don't. Wednesdays game will be emotional. If Barca can crank up the pressure, I think Liverpool are REALLY vulnerable in this game. I would not be shocked with something like a 1-1 draw. I think the Liverpool double up in defence could be costily the last few weeks.

    3. Macam Dave

      Hazard or aguero for run in - who scores more - pls pick one!
