FPL assets in action as Copa America and Gold Cup climax

Our regular round-ups of the international fixtures involving Fantasy Premier League assets continue.

There was Premier League representation in the finals of both the Copa America and Gold Cup, while there were also some familiar faces in action in the last 16 of the Africa Cup of Nations.

You can read how Sadio Mane (£11.5m) and Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) got on in their respective round-of-16 ties here.

Copa America

Brazil 3-1 Peru

Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) took centre stage as Brazil won their first Copa America since 2007.

The Manchester City striker has sometimes struggled to make a mark on the international scene but he has impressed for Selecao this summer and was once more influential in the opening 45 minutes of Sunday’s final.

Jesus, again lining up on the right flank but interchanging positions in the front three, produced some fine trickery and a superb cross for Everton to volley Brazil in front after quarter of an hour before restoring his country’s lead with a goal of his own just before the interval.

Jesus teed up Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino (£9.5m) for presentable opportunities after half-time but his evening took a turn for the worse when he was dismissed for a second bookable offence on 70 minutes.

The tearful City forward took his frustration out on a water bottle, a dugout and a VAR monitor but later apologised for his actions, saying:

I want to apologise, I could have avoided it and I also need to grow up a lot.

Firmino has also shone in the Copa America this summer but the Liverpool striker was unable to add to his tally of two goals and three assists, twice heading wide and missing that aforementioned chance created by Jesus.

Firmino started all six of Brazil’s competitive matches this summer.

It was Firmino’s replacement in this game, Richarlison (£8.0m), who put the game to bed from the penalty spot in the dying stages.

Introduced for the Liverpool man with 15 minutes to go, Richarlison stepped up to convert from 12 yards after Everton had been barged over in the Peru box.

The Toffees’ winger’s only two starts in the tournament came in the group stage.

After five successive clean sheets, Alisson (£6.0m) was finally beaten but it took a 44th-minute penalty from Paolo Guerrero for the Liverpool custodian to eventually be breached.

Fernandinho (£5.5m) and Ederson (£6.0m) were unused substitutes while Willian (£7.0m), who had been a doubt for the final with a thigh injury, was also not called upon from the hosts’ bench.

Argentina 2-1 Chile

Alexis Sanchez (£7.0m) lasted just 17 minutes of the Copa America third/fourth-place play-off on Saturday, limping from the field with what appeared to be a hamstring injury.

The Manchester United winger pulled up chasing a long ball and was replaced soon after.

The Chilean attacker, who has impressed this summer after a less-than-stellar season at United, will now return to his club for further assessment.

The Red Devils are currently in Australia, with a match against Perth Glory to come on Saturday.

Chile fell to a 2-1 defeat in their talisman’s absence, with Lionel Messi and Gary Medel both being dismissed in the first half of a fiercely contested game.

Sergio Aguero (£12.0m) registered his second goal of the tournament in giving Argentina a 12th-minute lead, with the Manchester City striker latching on to a quickly taken Lionel Messi free-kick to round Gabriel Arias and score.

Aguero had earlier fired narrowly wide from distance and wasted two decent chances to put the game to bed late on, seeing a weak dink over Arias blocked and then screwing wide from just inside the Chile box.

The premium FPL forward was eventually substituted on 81 minutes.

Juan Foyth (£5.0m) and Nicolas Otamendi (£5.5m) again played the full 90 minutes in defence, while Roberto Pereyra (£6.0m) was an unused substitute.

The Watford winger played only 45 minutes in the entire tournament.

Gold Cup

Mexico 1-0 USA

Mexico were crowned CONCACAF Gold Cup winners for the eighth time after defeating the United States in the early hours of Monday morning.

It was no surprise to see the two pre-tournament favourites meet each other in the final in Chicago, although Mexico had made heavy work of getting past Costa Rica and Haiti en route to their meeting against the co-hosts.

Raul Jimenez (£7.5m) finished as the competition’s second-highest scorer on five goals but turned provider in yesterday’s final, teeing up Jonathan dos Santos with a deft backheel for the match-winning strike on 73 minutes.

The Wolves striker had five of Mexico’s 20 attempts on goal against the US but was unable to add to his tally for the tournament, scuffing one effort from just outside the six-yard box after earlier air-kicking from a similar distance.

Jimenez won the Golden Ball as he was named the tournament’s best player, having been involved in seven of his country’s 16 goals.

The Wolves striker started all six of Mexico’s Gold Cup matches and was substituted in only two of them.

The former Benfica striker played all 330 minutes in his country’s three matches after the group stage, with El Tri taken to extra-time in the quarter-finals and semi-finals.

Christian Pulisic (£7.5m) was on the losing side and finished the tournament with three goals to his name.

The Chelsea winger, starting on the left flank in this match, was lively in the opening stages and his best chance came after just five minutes when he was denied by Guillermo Ochoa after a fine run and close-range shot.

Pulisic again produced flashes of Eden Hazard-esque brilliance in this final and has been one of the tournament’s stand-out players; the former Borussia Dortmund midfielder was indeed voted the Best Young Player at this summer’s Gold Cup after full-time.

Pulisic started five of the USA’s six matches in the competition, also coming on as a substitute in the dead rubber against Panama in the group stage.

Africa Cup of Nations

Algeria 3-0 Guinea

Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) scored a superb goal – his second of the tournament – as Algeria breezed through to the Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals on Sunday.

Guinea were missing the injured Naby Keita (£6.0m) but the Liverpool midfielder is expected to be fit to begin his pre-season training programme with the club later this month after a post-tournament breather.

Keita played only two matches in the tournament – one as a substitute – and sustained a minor adductor strain during the group game against Nigeria.

Mahrez was peripheral in the first half of this round-of-16 tie but scored from his first shot of the game, deceiving his marker with a beautiful first touch to control an Ismael Bennacer cross before curling low past Ibrahim Kone in the Guinea goal.

Kone denied Mahrez a second soon after when blocking the Manchester City winger’s toe-poked effort.

The former Leicester City midfielder, playing in his usual right-wing role in this match, lasted the full 90 minutes.

Algeria face Ivory Coast in the quarter-finals on Thursday.

Mali 0-1 Ivory Coast

Wilfried Zaha‘s (£7.0m) stay in Egypt was extended by at least another three days as his Ivory Coast side edged past Mali in their round-of-16 encounter on Monday evening.

Having been a substitute for Les Elephants in their opening two group games, the Crystal Palace winger made his second successive start and scored the game’s only goal on 76 minutes.

Another FPL asset provided the assist for Zaha’s match-winning strike: Aston Villa forward Jonathan Kodjia (£5.5m) getting the faintest flick onto a long punt out from the back and setting Zaha free to prod the ball past Dijgui Diarra.

Kodjia had wasted a similar opportunity shortly before the goal and the lofted through-ball was a tactic Ivory Coast overly relied on as they struggled to get a foothold in the game.

Zaha’s side indeed didn’t have a single shot on target in the first three-quarters of Tuesday’s game.

The Palace winger, playing on the left flank as Kodjia led the line, struggled to make much of an impression and only had a couple of blocked shots to show for his efforts before breaking the deadlock.

More involved on the opposite flank, however, was Moussa Djenepo (£5.5m).

The pacy Southampton winger was a menace down the Mali left and drew several fouls, also teeing up Moussa Marega shortly before half-time with a pullback from the byline.

The Saints’ summer signing was too quick for his own good just after the break though, with Djenepo leaving the ball behind him as he closed in on opposition goalkeeper Sylvain Gbohouo just after the interval.

With Mali eliminated, the former Standard Liege midfielder will now return to Southampton for the latter stage of pre-season and should be in contention for Gameweek 1.

Having previously been fearful that a hamstring injury had ended his tournament, Serge Aurier (£5.0m) was back among the substitutes for Ivory Coast but wasn’t called upon.

Madagascar 2-2 DR Congo (4-2 Penalties)

Arthur Masuaku (£4.5m) was an unused substitute as DR Congo were dumped out of the Africa Cup of Nations by Madagascar.

The tournament’s surprise package won after a penalty shootout and will play Tunisia in the quarter-finals on Thursday.

Yannick Bolasie, still on the books at Everton but anticipated to leave this summer, was one of two players to miss a spot-kick for DR Congo.

Masuaku only played 90 minutes over the course of the tournament.

Ghana 1-1 Tunisia (4-5 penalties)

A Ghana side missing the injured Christian Atsu (£5.5m) were dumped out of the Africa Cup of Nations on Monday after a penalty shootout defeat to Tunisia.

The Newcastle United winger picked up a hamstring injury in the group stage match against Cameroon and has since returned to England for treatment.

    The more I look at this draft squad, the more I like it. I've never played a 433 before so I'm in unknown territory.

    What do you guys think of it..?

    Ryan
    TAA Laporte Digne Ake
    Salah Sterling Siggy
    Vardy King DCL

    4.0 4.5 4.5 4.0

    Thanks in advance.

          Would you want to play Ryan and DCL every week?

            That's what I'm thinking. I may have to revert back to my preferred 343 formation.

          Decent. I dont like DCL as a starter With absolute trash on the bench though, but thats what you get when you play Salah, Sterling AND Vardy

        How Sky predict Leicester attack will look. Don't shoot the messenger if you don't agree 🙂

        Barnes Vardy Perez
        Maddison Tielemans

            Not at all. Barnes could be interesting @6.0....

          Yeah probably if they don’t sign a winger between now and the start of the season

          Pretty much what I expect. Maybe Gray or Albrighton playing over Barnes a few games.

          Barnes could be a good shout actually, being the cheapest.

          And no one is going for him

            He'll need to improve his finishing from last year! I'd find the extra .5m

              Weird as he scored shed-loads at West Brom in the first half of the season.

            10 days, 19 hours ago

            Thoughts on first draft:

            Foster
            TAA - ROBBO - LAPORTE - DIGNE
            STERLING - ZAHA - SIGG - MANE
            JOTA - KING

            Cheapest bench options possible.

            Wondering whether to swap downgrade Digne in order to field a 3-5-2?

            1. antis0cial
              • 3 Years
              10 days, 19 hours ago

              Not sure on Foster. I'd prefer Salah if you can squeeze him in, otherwise fairly template looks fine

            2. Brian Boitano
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              10 days, 19 hours ago

              2015 called they want Foster.

              Otherwise pretty solid non- Salah team.

              • 3 Years
              10 days, 18 hours ago

              If you "downgrade" Robbo>VVD and Foster>Ryan you should be able to do Mane>Salah which happens to be my team which I'm very happy with 🙂

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years

              Why doesnt Foster deserve upper case?

            10 days, 19 hours ago

            Just a quick first draft. Back after a year away, bring on the blood pressure increase...

            Pickford
            TAA VVD Digne Laporte
            Salah KDB Tielemans Sigurdsson
            Deulofeu Wilson

            Button Dendoncker Targett Nketiah

            1. EgyptianKing
                10 days, 19 hours ago

                Seems strong!

                Personally I prefer going with Sterling instead of KDB.

                Some options you have to fund that move include some of:
                - Pickford to 4.5 (Ryan or Burnley, I would say)
                - Wilson to King
                - Digne to Coleman
                - Laporte to Walker

                Cheers mate

                1. SoccerBoi69
                  • 1 Year
                  10 days, 18 hours ago

                  I've switched between two 4.5s and Pickford countless times already, and the same applies to Wilson/King. There ain't no hella way I want to lose Digne though (judging from his stats last season).

                  If it wasn't for AFCON troubles... Salah/KDB/Wilson/Tielemens/Laporte
                  to
                  Mane/Sterling/King/Maddison/Walker
                  ...would, possibly, be what I went for. Thanks for the suggestions King.

                  Hi mates.

                  Anyone considering going with Salah and Mane double up?

                  1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years
                    10 days, 19 hours ago

                    Hiya bud

                    Personally I wouldn’t even dream of it - not only does Mané look potentially a little pricey in relation to Salah... but you’d also be limiting to yourself to only one of TAA, Robbo, VVD

                    If Mané was 10.5 I think there might be more of a case, but it still wouldn’t be a strong one imo

                    1. EgyptianKing
                        10 days, 19 hours ago

                        Thank you for your answer.

                        I understand that it maybe is a too pricey trio and better value can be found elsewhere, however a TAA Mane Salah trio really seems powerful.

                        Anyways, for now I am settled with TAA Robertson Salah as Liverpool coverage, and feels strong too.

                        Sterling / KDB duo, are you consering it?

                          Can't have them all. Don't think KDB is an option if going Salah/Sterling

                          KDB looks potentially awesome value, but I’ve been saying all through pre season I want to be a game or two late for him rather than early

                          With his knee issues, and his manager’s rouletette issues and/or penchant for wrapping him in cotton wool until he’s got a few games under his belt - I just don’t want the hassle of waiting for an excellent FPL player to to be fit, whilst they are scoring me no points from the treatment table and/or the bench!

                          I had enough of that last season with both Ings & Wilson 🙂

                          Sterling - turbo locked into my team

                          I think we'd all be wanting that for Norwich at home if it was later in the season.

                          With TAA, VVD and Robbo offering the points, I think many won't. Especially trying to get a City attacker in. Could work well but the City games would make uncomfortable viewing

                              It would have to be something like:

                              Ryan
                              Coleman, Smith, TAA

                              King

                              I agree that better alternatives can be found, namely with the Pool duo in defence I guess

                                  That said mate. Teams find a way of working the successful teams out. The double up at the back for Liverpool won't work every week but if they're anywhere near 20 clean sheets with a few assists on top then you'd want to take that route

                              No not really too much value in their defence, more ppl going for the triple defence instead of Salah and Mane!

                              No, far too much Value in TAA/Robbo/VVD

                                I prefer the 6.5/7m mid bracket atm, lots more options there so would try to save some money elsewhere if possible.

                                I'm not sure if he's attacking enough and for a team that's not likely to set the league alight. Quite like Yarmo at that price point or otherwise stretch to 6.5 where there is an abundance of options.

                                You could even punt on Wilson at 6m depending how preseason goes. I think Grealish is a class act and think he will step up this season. Yarmolenko as mentioned could also be a massive player at 6m if he gets a good pre under his belt. I also expect Andre Gomez at 5.5m to have a big season 2nd season now he's signed for Everton.

                                Prefer James Ward-Prowse than them.

                                Or even a Lampard-managed Barkley if all indicated he will be nailed on for the first few games

                                    WOW. Just really I put Wilson and I meant James 🙁

                                    I clearly blame James Wilson 😀 😀 I agree with Barkley. With regular first team football he'd be a snip

                                          Haha I'm just glad no one went to town on me! I've said a few times Utd could be really explosive going forward but think you will be so much better without Pogba. Sanchez could still have a big say as well and I think Pogba leaving could have a positive effect on players like Sanchez. Rashford is certainly one of the strikers I'm looking at. With James on the right of a front free and Sanchez/Martial on the left. It isn't all doom and gloom at Utd from an FPL perspective and i'm sure pre-season will sway us

                                            Well disagree that United will be better without Pogba, he is still one of our best players but yes it could be good for FPL if Martial/Rashford or even Sanchez become the main man!

                                              I can't help but think his ego got in the way massively last season. Just like Mendy at Man City. Player who constantly test their managers who believe they're indispensable. On his day, Pogba is class I don't doubt that

                                  Last tinker until much closer to season start:

                                  Ederson
                                  Robbo TAA Digne Coleman

                                  Jota King

                                  Button Dendoncker Kelly Greenwood

                                  A) Ederson, Coleman, Yarmo (as above)
                                  B) Heaton, Laporte, Perez

                                  Best striker options at 6.5? Is Deu or Ward better option than Jota?

                                      I prefer B mate, I think it has more upside. If Yarmo starts the season well, it is an easy swap for Perez. Personally I consider that Digne Coleman double-up can be too much.

                                      Between Jota and Deulofeu, it seems for now a coin toss. I am leaning towards the latter.

                                      Mates, I am currently still on this. Any transfer suggestion? It would be great to have some of your feedback.

                                      It is template it seems, but I am OK with that, as I like the rationale behind any of those choices:

                                      Ryan
                                      Coleman, TAA, Robertson, Walker
                                      Siggy, Fraser, Salah, Sterling
                                      King, Deulofeu

                                        Fairly template, similar to what I have, so I like it! I'm not sure on Walker, he doesn't have much attacking potential nowadays and may be rotated. Wait and see on Fraser, may well go to Arsenal and not sure if he will be a permanent starter there or not.

                                      Guys....I'm putting together my first draft and I'm not seeing much love for Pulisic?

                                      I think at 7.5M he is a bargain and I think even though Chelsea have a transfer ban etc he is straight into my squad. I think he will have quite impact!

                                      Anyone agree?

                                        Chelsea are certainly being ignored by almost everybody on here - think there may be a few options that emerge during pre-season when we get an idea of how the team is going to set up.

                                        He might, but with Willian, Pedro, Giroud and probably Tammy and Bats cheaper it's wait and see

                                        He's a completely unknown commodity as far as the PL goes. Assess pre-season.

                                          I haven't seen much of him but am I right in thinking he was never particularly prolific with goals or assists for Dortmund?

                                          Think most are just waiting to see him in pre-season but unless he is confirmed on pens I can't see him being worth 0.5m more than Willian or their starting striker!

                                                If he’s playing WB for Chelsea he’s a steal at £4.5

                                                      Chelsea have 4 top quality wingers, including one they just signed for a lot of money in pulisic and one they are desperate to tie down to a long term contract in CHO. Why on earth would they play a formation that does not accommodate any of these players

                                                          Yes I don’t expect him to be picked ahead of some of those options, but even a flat back 4 should include him I think. I’m very interested in Chelsea options and am keeping a close eye on pre-season. Needless to say, he is my most tenuous inclusion but think it could be a real coup if he nails down a starting place

                                                      I think he's more likely to be sold than to start, linked with a move back to Italy and has been a non-entity since signing.

                                                Matip, strong end to last season. Gomez didn't put a foot wrong until injury? Any Lpool fans wanna help a bro out?

                                                  He will prob rotate them in pre-season and pick one based on that , but guessing Gomez is just ahead atm

                                                    Almost definitely will be Gomez, him and Van Dijk were immense together for first 10 games or so last year, think the back four will be very settled. However I’m thinking the attacking returns of the full backs might still be worth 1.5 million, still undecided though

                                                      Yeah, yet to do the maths on it... Have 5.5m for that last defender slot and either of these two look the best bet if they're nailed on...

                                                    I'd lean with Matip to begin with but think Gomez will overthrow him at some point.

                                                  Two keepers that rotate well?

                                                  1. Skalla

                                                    With no budget I would rotate Allison and Ederson!

                                                      Probably Pope and whoever the villa keeper will be, not a fan of rotating keepers though

                                                        Probably Heaton!

                                                    Would appreciate your thoughts on the following 4-4-2 team. My only dilemma is which two should I choose out of King / Jota / Deulofeu / Murray / Barnes...

                                                        Think you’ve got it right, maybe Deulofeu ahead of Jota due to europa league but decide nearer the time I guess based on pre season etc

                                                      Best 6.0 midfielder? Currently taken a punt on Grealish

                                                          Maybe yarmolenko at West Ham, kind of need to wait for pre season though as there aren’t many options that stick out

                                                            Unfortunately you're stuck with a 4-4-2 there and will only possibly have Hayden as backup.
                                                            I like how you have moved a bit away from the template. You may as well make Origi > Greenwood then use the 1m to make an improvement to the squad?

                                                              Greenwood likely to feature much?

                                                            Think iv finally settled on a 4-3-3 with Laporte. (Rather than 6.5 midfielder in a 3-4-3) Good to go?

                                                              Good afternoon everybody. Really think a part from 4-5 essential assets, other players range from being absolute gambles (Ward-Prowse, Brooks) to semi-essential/very useful picks (Sigurdsson, Maddison). Every year defenders get more and points from attacking return: this is the way modern football works, playing on the wings, faster and faster. On the other hand, "old-style" central forwards can be counted on a hand's fingers: Kane, Vardy, Aguero. Modern forwards come back on the pitch, move on the sidelines, cross the ball in the middle, can invent for the offensive midfielders (see the number of assists from people like Wilson, Jimenez). From all this, it comes that we won't expect from them the points potential they had not too many years ago, and thus I'd prefer going 4-5-1 or better 3-5-2, without the fear of losing points, but with the hope of gaining. What do you think?

                                                                        But definitely a thing to consider.

                                                                        I am currently on Sterling. Do you think it is the "safest" oprion there?

We have one of the most exciting new talents in European football there in Trossard at only 6m with some very good fixtures to start. For those with salah and sterling like me he can be a great budget option for sure. Jahanbaksh was poo last year but has history of being prolific too. Trossard for me appears to closer resemble the attributes required to be successful in the premier league though.
