Salah injury latest after Newcastle outing cut short

Newcastle 2-3 Liverpool

Goals: Christian Atsu (£5.1m), Salomón Rondón (£5.9m) | Virgil van Dijk (£6.7m), Mohamed Salah (£13.3m), Divock Origi (£5.0m)

Assists: Rondón, Javier Manquillo (£4.3m) | Trent Alexander-Arnold x2 (£5.7m), Xherdan Shaqiri (£6.8m)

Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) owners are now faced with a week of uncertainty as he was taken off with a head injury in Liverpool’s win over Newcastle. After making it six consecutive Gameweeks with attacking returns, the Egyptian was floored in a collision with goalkeeper Martin Dúbravka (£5.0m) and his awkward landing exacerbated the problem. He was down receiving treatment for some time before being taken off the pitch on a stretcher.

Thankfully, there will be regular updates on Salah this week as Liverpool prepare for the second leg of their Champions League semi-final with Barcelona. The corresponding press conference will likely take place on Monday given that the match is scheduled for Tuesday night. Furthermore, we should know more about Salah’s situation after the game depending on the role he plays against Barcelona.

“What I heard, he got the hip of the goalie on his head. He was then on the ground and the doc had to make a decision ‘on the pitch or off the pitch’, and the decision was off the pitch. We accept that of course. When he came in he was sitting in the dressing room watching the game on television. So he was then fine, but of course, we have to wait. He got a proper knock, obviously, in that situation.” – Jurgen Klopp

Whether Salah can be fit for the final day of the season visit of Wolves could prove pivotal for Fantasy managers. He was Liverpool’s primary goal threat against Newcastle, registering more shots and more efforts in the box than any of his colleagues. His deft first-half finish extended his lead at the top of the Golden Boot charts and means he has five goals in as many Premier League outings.

By contrast, Sadio Mané (£10.2m) was largely anonymous, as has often been the case in away matches this season. He had just one shot on goal all evening and was unable to be the chief beneficiary of Newcastle’s vulnerability in the air, despite registering more headed attempts than any other midfielder this season.

Despite winning the game in dramatic fashion, Liverpool were not quite at their ruthless best, actually emerging from the trip to Newcastle with a lower expected goals (xG) score than their hosts. That may have been down to Roberto Firmino‘s (£9.3m) latest absence. After missing Gameweek 36 and then only playing a small part in the defeat to Barcelona, the Brazilian could not overcome the muscle injury he has been dealing with of late. Klopp has already ruled him out of midweek Champions League action and must wait and see if he can feature against Wolves on Sunday.

“(Firmino) will not be ready for Tuesday and the rest we will see.” – Jurgen Klopp

Part of what caused Liverpool problems in Firmino’s absence has been the role Daniel Sturridge (£5.6m) has played in the last two matches. He started up front in both Gameweek 36 and 37, but in neither match did he get close to replicating what Firmino brings to the team. The Brazilian has been an excellent link-up man for Liverpool this season, while Sturridge has proved to be more of a one-dimensional forward, largely looking to shoot on sight. Despite his selfish tendencies in front of goal, seven players have registered a higher expected goal involvement (xGI) score in the last two matches than the Englishman, even Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£6.4m).

It will be interesting to see who is given the nod to start up front against Wolves if it looks like Firmino cannot play. With Sturridge not particularly impressing, Divock Origi (£5.0m) might fancy his chances after he got the all-important late winning goal for Liverpool. The last time he started at home in the league he featured on the left of the front three, allowing Mané to play through the middle, and got himself a goal too. However, that was, admittedly, against Watford, who have been much worse against top six sides this year than Wolves.

Xherdan Shaqiri (£6.8m) may also be in contention given his role in the team earlier this season, and an assist for the winner at Newcastle. When Salah was being played as the centre-forward in the 4-2-3-1 system, Shaqiri occupied the right attacking-midfield position and could play there again if Klopp opts to change formation for the final day of the campaign.

“We have fresh players on the bench, try to have an impact – and they had [an impact]. It was a wonderful free-kick from Shaq and sensational header from Divock and we win the game. We are now qualified for the league final, which is brilliant. So crucial. What can I say? It is just brilliant, it is like a fairy tale. You can say whatever you want about me – they don’t play often enough, Shaqiri not often enough. I make this decision. It is great that they do it, I love it. That was really a big moment.” – Jurgen Klopp

It was a mixed evening for Liverpool defensive assets as their fortunes were decided on their attacking capabilities rather than clean sheet potential. As previously mentioned, Newcastle certainly deserved their goals based on the quality of their chances, which will be of some concern ahead of a clash with top-six specialists Wolves on the final day.

“Credit to Newcastle, that was, wow… any people who doubt or whatever that teams don’t play for anything anymore, or maybe are halfway on the beach already, they were really the opposite. Is there any history between Newcastle and Liverpool that I don’t know about? The atmosphere was like there was something that happened in the past. The boys, again, were ready to face it, ready to deal with it and that’s brilliant.” – Jurgen Klopp

It was the Magpies’ weaknesses that dictated which of the Liverpool defenders were able to pull in offensive returns. They have been particularly vulnerable to players with aerial threat and set pieces this season, which is why Virgil van Dijk (£6.7m) was able to convert perhaps the easiest header of his career into the net, completely unmarked, in the 13th minute.

Also benefitting hugely in this department was Trent Alexander-Arnold (£5.7m) who took the corner for that opener. His ability to cross the ball in early from wide areas helped him to his second assist of the night when Salah converted his 28th-minute chance.

His pair of assists on Saturday night helped make Premier League history, in fact. The England international has now provided 11 of them this season, and is just one short of colleague Andrew Robertson (£6.8m). Crucially, those who have opted to own both of the two full-backs have been handsomely rewarded this season, as they have arguably been the most effective defensive double-up in FPL history. The efforts of Alexander-Arnold and Robertson mean that it is the first time in Premier League history that two defenders from the same club have produced more than 10 assists in a campaign.

“The first goal, Pete Krawietz and Greg and James, our analysts, what they do around set-pieces is unbelievable. It is really nice to see. Having Virgil van Dijk completely free in the box is pretty rare, it was a wonderful routine.” – Jurgen Klopp

However, it must be said that Alexander-Arnold was hugely fortunate to last longer than 20 minutes at Newcastle. He was the last bastion of defence for one of Newcastle’s first-half counter-attacks, blocking Salomón Rondón‘s (£5.9m) shot with his elbow, before it was converted by Christian Atsu (£5.1m). Had Liverpool been able to clear their lines, it is likely that they would have conceded a penalty for the handball and Alexander-Arnold would have been sent off.

In scoring twice, Newcastle demonstrated that their offensive potential is not necessarily dependent on Miguel Almirón (£6.0m). The Paraguayan international transformed the pace of their attack since signing in January, and also brought out the best in Ayoze Pérez (£6.1m) in recent weeks. It had been thought that going up against Liverpool without Almirón might see the Magpies offer little in the way of goal threat, but they asked Liverpool plenty of questions.

Rondón, in particular, was a constant menace, not only with his characteristic running and pressing off the ball but with his efforts on goal too. No player on the pitch had more shots in the box, either total or inside the box, than the Venezuelan international, suggesting he could act as an effective differential signing for the Gameweek 38 trip to relegated Fulham.

Newcastle United XI (5-4-1): Dúbravka; Ritchie, Dummett, Lascelles, Schär (Muto 90+1′), Manquillo; Atsu, Ki, Hayden, A Pérez; Rondón.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Robertson, van Dijk, Lovren (Milner 66′), Alexander-Arnold; Wijnaldum (Shaqiri 66′), Fabinho, Henderson; Mané, Sturridge, Salah (Origi 73′).

    Early RMT for GW1:

    Henderson
    VVD, Digne, Robbo
    Sterling, Mili, JWP, Brooks
    Pukki, Kun, Vardy
    (4.5, 4.0, 4.5, 4.5)

    Should be around the 100.0 mark assuming 20.5 for VVD/Digne/Robbo

      You’ve got no Utd. Need one of Sancho or Icardi at least.

        As a utd fan I will not be partaking in any of their players until I see an improvement. In the words of Gary Neville, they are not just weeds in that dressing room, there are japanese knotweeds!

        I could see Vardy & Tielemans being Rodgers Gerrard & Suarez figures next year - Leciester attack should be profitable

        Sheff Utd keeper should rack up plenty saves & they've joint best defence in champo so should provide value

          That's some useful insight 🙂
          Cheers mate.

          I'd prefer Jota over Milivojevic (if he stays Midfielder)

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 year, 2 months ago

            I wonder will Jota be reclassified to a forward? I think he;s definitely due a big price hike anyways with Wolves finishing so high is what would put me off him... if he's same price & position as this year he's a shoe in though

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              1 year, 2 months ago

              7m is good for him as a Midfielder imo.
              Won't be able to get if he's classified as striker though

              1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

                Will be interesting to see... the Europa League effect will hit Wolves next year too!

                Currently Wolves are too small a team to interest me if playing in Europa.

                  • 10 Years
                  1 year, 2 months ago

                  The early start to qualifying etc could hit them hard... who knows - Nuno will need to sign 2 or 3 quality players but they seem to have no trouble doing that with their network - Neves, Jiminez, Moutinho etc all great signings for what was a championship club 10 months ago - they could pull similar rabbits out of the hat this summer

                    Will be really interesting to see their ambition this summer.

  2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Best move to fill the Son and Jimmy shaped holes in my team for 38?
    A. Pogba and Zaha
    B. Bilva and Rashford
    C. Something else (15.4 to spend)
    D. Sell Jota instead of Jimmy. 15.3 on two mids (have Sterling, Erik, Mane)

    Not much thought spent on it yet, hence the united options 🙂

    1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      c) I am going to get aguero and redmond
      Getting rid of son and firmino

      or your b) option looks the next best

    2. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Players I like for 38 are Redmond, Fraser, BSilva, Rondon, Mitrovic, Wilson and Zaha.

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Yes can see the palace-Bournemouth game being a goalfest. Could go cheap with Fraser and Zaha.

      2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        If you didn't own Pog, would you get him or prefer one of those mid-price/cheap mids on your list?

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Wouldn't get him, it's hard for me to be objective at the moment though because I'm still really annoyed about the game as a fan.

          1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 2 months ago

            Didn't he hit the woodwork a few times? It seems so odd not to consider them at all vs a relegated Cardiff at home, but they don't look great bets of course.

            1. Would Ed Woodward
              • 1 Year
              1 year, 2 months ago

              Hit the bar twice but didn't look good, threatening or particularly bothered apart from that.

            Cheer up. It can only get better.

            Utd need to sharpen up off the pitch as well as on. Big summer ahead in transfer market.

              Yeah, huge summer ahead, big decisions to make, lot's of work to be done and lot's of deadwood to get rid of.

              I'm ok apart from the Utd stuff, it's actually been a good weekend as my rival has somehow had a much worse one than me despite mine being pretty bad. Thankfully, he also brought in Pogba.

                As a spurs fan on a terrible fpl gw, I was on a real downer until Murray came along.

                In reality, despite missing out on top 4, they still utd have way more spending power (fees and wages) than spurs. Spurs need to get 5 or 6 new faces too and we will find it harder I think.

                Not sure on OGS, but was a real tall order to get top 4 with a squad as underperforming as that.

          It's always so random the last week.

          I think the best punt is to choose a game involving 2 attacking looking teams with nowt to play for rather than a title chasing team.

          I think Leicester v Chelsea or spurs v Everton maybe but Europe gets in the way.

          I'll say tielemans.

    How many points have you got from Hazzo this season? 189 points from 16 games at an average of 11.8... has been my most reliable player 😀

      Ah you have to go by the FFS myth - Hazard is a troll etc 😀

      (Hazard captain here_

      197

      I've played him 23 times at an 8.6 average.

      That means I missed 14 games and 40 points - less than 3 average.

      He is NOT a troll!!!

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Whoops forgot captain points. I missed 71 points over 14 games at 5.0

        Still cool

    5. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Seems I saw him as too much of a troll.

      Only 125 from 17.
      7.4pts / match played
      Not awful

    6. AYLD28
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      254 for me, I was an early owner and captained for most of his hauls

      1. AYLD28
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Owned him for 27 gameweeks

      How do i find this info?

  8. Van der Faart

    Rashford out for Vardy again?

  9. mdm
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Play one:

    A. Gray (WHM)
    B. Jota (liv)

    1. how now brown cow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      A. But very close.

    2. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Jota. He'll start and play 90mins.

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Gray
      Due to possible Rotation for fa cup from Watford

      1. AuFeld
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        I forgot about the FA Cup. Good call.

  10. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Lloris
    Robbo - Shaw - Valery
    Sterling - Mane - Eriksen - Son!!
    Aguero - Ings - Jimenez

    (Ryan / Jota / Bednarek / Doherty)
    2FT & 0.2m

    Think I'm set on doing Son to B.Silva.
    Not sure about how to use the 2nd transfer.
    Possible options are:

    A) Jimmy to Mitro/Zaha/Rondon
    B) Doherty to B.Silva (442)
    C) Jota to 7.3m mid (not many options can't get Redmond)

    Thoughts?

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      have you considered waiting to see how city get on this monday night?

      1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Definitely going to wait till next Sunday to make the transfers but fancy City to win that game comfortably.

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      A out of those.
      Rondon

  11. Warby84
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Replace Jiminez with
    A Mitrovic
    B Rondon
    C Wilson...

    1. Chucky
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      can you afford zaha?

      1. Warby84
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Yeah but rival has zaha, tempted by Wilson!

        1. Chucky
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          yes could be a goal fest... do it

          1. Warby84
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 2 months ago

            Done, last 2 away games total of 31 points

  12. EMBOLOFAN
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    lossl now has more assists than mooy

  13. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    According to fantasy football fix -
    The average for the top 1k is 31
    But the overall average is 37

    First time I have seen the overall beat the top 1k for a good while.
    I assume this means most in the top 1k have captained sterling/aguero?

      1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        😀 how could I forget gw34? I blanked out that horror out of my mind.

    1. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Correct. Aguero with an EO of 132% within the top 10k.

  14. THFC4LIFE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Martial injured or just out of favour?

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      OOF

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Out of favor

  15. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Trying to spend my 15.4 on a striker and mid. Can anyone give me the lowdown on how good or bad the most expensive options are that I'm considering?
    A. Sane (would come in with Perez or Rondon I suspect).
    B. Vardy (with Fraser, Mili or Redmond).

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I'm currently set on Vardy + Redmond pair
      Selling Son + Jimenez (-4)

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Redmond is a tricky one. I get it, but he's Townsend like for me, very difficult to pick his sporadic hauls. I assume funds fit nicely though?

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Absolutely. Would keep 1m odd itb too after that.
          He's my © f gw 38 😛

      2. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Haha hilarious thinking about the same move but for free

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Awesome 🙂

    2. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      B. Sane's game time is a concern.

    3. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      B with redmond I guess

  16. Vlad Tepes
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Should I get Hazard in instead for Son? If I do I have to start Doherty.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Hazard much better at home.

    2. Oscar Slater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Hazard now non essential.

  17. Indalo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    What's with all the Jimenez out transfers? Has something happened with him? Haven't really been paying attention to the football this weekend.

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      People don't want double Wolves attack versus Pool and doesn't matter about lost value

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Nothing.
      He hasn't looked dangerous in last 2/3 gw's though

    3. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Playing poll away

    4. kalmoffit

      Liverpool fans. It was Rondon last week.

  18. Super Saints
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    For 38, Son to?

    A. Bilva
    B. Mili
    C. Someone else?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years

      B silva

  19. Chucky
    • 6 Years

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years

      No Redmond, no party.

      1. Chucky
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        I already have him and Valery.... got mane in to block you... 😉

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years

          Might need to make the transfers next time.

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Just play Jimenez instead of Rashford -4

      1. Chucky
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        nah need a diff to get ahead of TM....

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 2 months ago

          😀
          What if TM buys Rashford himself 😛

          1. Chucky
            • 6 Years

            😮

    1. kalmoffit

      Fraser

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years

      Is that a boxing match?

      1. NIKO.
        • 2 Years

        Lol that would be a right tear up

    3. Oscar Slater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Babel essential.

      1. AuFeld
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        It will be interesting to see if he'll be playing in the PL next season.

  21. merin

    How would you use this FT?

    Guaita Foster
    Robertson Laporte Doherty Yoshida Valery
    Sterling Mané Son Pogba Hojbjerg
    Aguero Jimenez Wilson

    1.1 ITB, 1 FT

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Jimenez to Arnie ( Watford will have FA cup in their mind) ?

  22. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Son and eriksen to sterling and Mata for free ?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Not today.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        No of course. But feels like a good move

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Good option.
      Raz important pick. Mata, well probably doesn't Mata as it's last gw 😉
      I'm going for Redmond as punt

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Will do Redmond if I can't afford this move on Sunday . Thanks Amey 🙂 frustrating day today ...

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Maybe a better MNF awaiting us 🙂

    3. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I got mata for Hudd, think I’m going to keep..

  23. Van der Faart
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Who wins here?

    Ederson, Laporte, Sterling(C) +8 points
    Vs
    Schmeichel, Sterling and Kun(C)

  24. pingissimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Is Rondon still on loan to Newcastle?

    Wouldn't mind him at Palace next year when he turns out to be too old for Newcastle,

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Would like to see Mitrovic at West Ham

  25. THFC4LIFE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Thoughts on Son and Jimenez to Fraser and Vardy for a hit??

    Should be lots of goals in both games

    1. Van der Faart
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      That's the moves I'm looking at. Like the look of them too.

    2. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I like it.

    3. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Could make those moves for free. Seems like a nice idea.

    4. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Cheers all

    5. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Looking for similar move. Redmond instead of Fraser though

      1. THFC4LIFE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Not a bad shout either mate

  26. Silecro
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    2 ft, would you do Jota & Jimenez > Perez & Arnie for free?

    1. Gorbitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Depends on your bench. Could you do Jim->Arnie only?

      1. Gorbitz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Sorry. My mistake. That would be a Yes

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I'd be very tempted.

      Those are the two fixtures I'd focus on. Big call to lose both of them tho

  27. Gorbitz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    How many minutes do you think Gray will get in gw38? 7 minutes today. And then there’s the FA cup final coming up

  28. Indpush
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Mind giving me your opinion of moves with my two ft's assuming Salah plays?

    Ederson/Boruc

    Doherty, Bennett, Duffy, Bednarek, Yedlin

    Son, Salah, Mane, Sterling, Moura

    Jimenez, Aguero, Quaner

    0 ITB, 2 free transfers (Up for taking a hit too if need be to get the best result)

    A) Dump Son and Jimenez and go with my horrible D
    B) Ditch Son and get another defender?
    C)Your suggestion(s)

  29. Ask Yourself
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Any mid on the game at 10m or below who would you get?
    Looking from Sánchez to Antonio. Key is players with something to play for, I guess united Have maybe 5th place to play for but doesn’t matter anymore. Antonio has top half to play for and as a West Ham fan I know that’s a big deal to the team.
    Anyone think of any other decent mids with something to play for? Cheers x
