Norwich injury worries add to Liverpool’s Gameweek 1 appeal

Our pre-season coverage continues with a look at the four pre-season friendlies involving Premier League clubs that took place on Sunday.

There were first appearances of the summer for a number of key Fantasy assets while there were some key injury updates to note which could affect our thinking for Gameweek 1.

Arminia Bielefeld 2-2 Norwich City

Christoph Zimmermann is ruled out for four to six weeks after knee surgery
  • Goals: Josip Drmic (£5.5m), Dennis Srbeny (£5.5m)
  • Assists: Kenny McLean (£5.0m)

Fantasy managers who are backing Liverpool’s attacking assets in Gameweek 1 would have been further encouraged by events in Bielefeld on Sunday.

The Reds take on newly promoted Norwich City in the 2019/20 curtain-raiser and the Canaries are facing a selection headache at the back going into that encounter at Anfield.

With Christoph Zimmermann (£4.5m) already a major doubt for the start of the season after undergoing knee surgery, manager Daniel Farke lost another centre-half in Ben Godfrey (£4.5m) after less than 25 minutes of the Canaries’ first pre-season friendly.

Godfrey and Zimmermann were Norwich’s first-choice defensive pairing in the run-in last season.

Back-up midfielder Louis Thompson, playing at full-back on Sunday, had earlier limped from the pitch to add to Farke’s injury woes.

Speaking after the match, the Norwich boss said:

I’m a bit more concerned about Ben Godfrey because it was a contact injury and it was pretty painful. He had to leave the stadium on crutches.

We have to wait to see what the scan and what the doctor says. Hopefully, he’s available pretty soon but at the moment, I’m pretty concerned because it doesn’t look good.”

Christoph Zimmermann is out for a few weeks and I’m now concerned that Ben could miss a few weeks.

Timm Klose (£4.5m), Alex Tettey (£4.5m), Mario Vrancic (£6.5m) and Todd Cantwell (£4.5m) missed out on the 2-2 draw, meanwhile, although Farke is less concerned about this quartet of players:

The small injuries don’t concern me too much. Todd, for example, will join us during team training tomorrow, Timm probably on Tuesday. Mario will be back soon.

Alex has a small calf injury. We are awaiting the scan. He did it a couple of days ago,

Because of so many games, there are some injuries. The only big problem we have at the moments is the injuries we have in the centre-back position.

Left-back Jamal Lewis (£4.5m) moved across to centre-half alongside Grant Hanley (£4.0m) following Godfrey’s withdrawal, with substitute Philip Heise filling in for Lewis.

Teemu Pukki (£6.5m) got his first taste of pre-season football after replacing Josip Drmic (£5.5m) at half-time, with the Finland international striking the post in stoppage time as Norwich chased a winner against their ten-man opposition.

Drmic had gone one better in the first half and opened his Norwich account from the spot, with the visitors awarded a penalty when Kenny McLean (£5.0m) flicked Patrick Roberts‘ (£5.5m) corner onto a Bielefeld hand.

It remains to be seen where Drmic figures in the running order from 12 yards going forward: the Canaries had five different penalty takers in 2018/19, all of whom missed one effort each.

Norwich had lined up in their familiar 4-2-3-1 system, with Roberts and Emiliano Buendia (£6.0m) providing the width and Dennis Srbeny (£5.5m) supporting Drmic in attack.

Srbeny latched onto a loose throw to curl in Norwich’s second goal before making way for Marco Stiepermann (£5.5m) at the interval.

Tim Krul and Ralf Fahrmann (both £4.5m) each got a half to impress and were both beaten as Arminia salvaged a draw despite the first-half dismissal of Joan Simun Edmundsson.

Lewis was culpable for the German side’s opener after spraying a wayward pass across midfield, while the hosts’ equaliser came in the dying stages when Krul was beaten by a curling shot from the edge of the Norwich box.

Norwich City XI (4-2-3-1): Fährmann (Krul 46′), Thompson (Aarons 19′), Godfrey (Heise 24′), Hanley, Lewis, Leitner (Trybull 46′), McLean, Buendia (Idah 75′), Roberts (Hernandez 46′), Srbeny (Stiepermann 46′), Drmic (Pukki 46′).

Bradford City 1-3 Liverpool

James Milner scored twice in Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Bradford
  • Goals: James Milner (£5.5m) x2, Rhian Brewster
  • Assists: Ryan Kent x2, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£6.5m)

Jurgen Klopp provided reassuring news on Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) ahead of Sunday’s win over Bradford City.

The Scottish left-back, who also suffered a hamstring injury when playing for Scotland in early June, recently underwent hand surgery to deal with an infection.

Klopp said:

It’s unlucky, he got bitten by something not so good – not a dog, I think it was a spider or a mosquito – and it got infected. It’s not a massive problem apart from throw-ins!

He should be back in training in a couple of days. The rest is good, he could do all of the programme he had to do.

The Reds were again without the likes of Mohamed Salah (£12.5m), Alisson (£6.0m) and Roberto Firmino (£9.5m), all of whom were handed post-tournament rests following their contributions at the Africa Cup of Nations and Copa America.

Sadio Mane‘s (£11.5m) Senegal, meanwhile, reached the final of the Africa Cup of Nations after Sunday’s win over Tunisia.

That final will take place on Friday, exactly three weeks before Liverpool’s Gameweek 1 fixture.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.0m), Jordan Henderson (£5.5m), Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) and Georginio Wijnaldum (£5.5m) weren’t present at Valley Parade either but returned to training on Saturday and will be involved in Liverpool’s forthcoming trip to the United States.

Klopp said on Saturday, ahead of the Bradford game:

It’s good to see them back, absolutely brilliant. They are all in good shape and good spirits, I would say. I am happy, they are happy to be back as well. They had the holiday they needed and wanted, so now we can start. Very good.

Training [is the plan]. How pre-season will be now, individual programmes for different players and groups.

We will play the game tomorrow without them because they have to train twice. Today they did their lactate test, tomorrow they will train twice.

On Monday, the rest of the squad who are playing now will have a day off before we fly to America. They will train with them again and the group who came late.

From America onwards, they are pretty much in a normal rhythm, but we will use these three or four days to do some different things with them. Then, after landing in America, they are fully available.

Liverpool’s squad at Bradford was much the same as it was against Tranmere but Dejan Lovren (£5.5m) returned to play the first 45 minutes at centre-back.

James Milner (£5.5m) scored twice for the visitors, his first a deflected effort following a short corner and his second a penalty after impressive young winger Ryan Kent had been felled.

Rhian Brewster tapped in Liverpool’s third after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain‘s (£6.5m) deflected shot had been parried away.

Bradford pulled a goal back from the penalty spot through Eoin Doyle in what was the hosts’ only shot on target.

The first half saw Adam Lallana (£6.0m) feature in a deep central midfield role and Klopp discussed this unusual tactical approach after full-time:

Adam is this kind of player, he can play that no problem. He enjoys it obviously a lot! It’s about getting Adam the rhythm, bringing the things he is naturally good in: small spaces, keeping the ball, passing the ball and all that stuff, and then from time to time offering the runs in behind as well – especially together with Millie that’s possible.

For us, it’s another option to use. He just needs a bit of luck now, that’s true. We have to come through [pre-season] without injuries, that would be cool, and we have a couple of ‘new’ players I would say, this season.

Liverpool first-half XI (4-3-3): Mignolet, Clyne, Phillips, Lovren, Larouci, Milner, Lallana, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Wilson, Kent, Brewster.

Liverpool second-half XI (4-3-3): Mignolet (Atherton 81′), Hoever, Matip, Gomez, Lewis, Fabinho, Woodburn, Jones, Duncan, Origi, Millar.

FC Sion 0-0 Everton

Lucas Digne made his first pre-season appearance after an extended summer break

Gylfi Sigurdsson (£8.0m), Seamus Coleman (£5.5m), Lucas Digne (£6.0m) and Jordan Pickford (£5.5m) all got their first taste of pre-season football as Everton drew a blank in Switzerland.

All four players were named among the substitutes with a view to being introduced after the break but Coleman was thrown into the fray earlier than expected when youngster Joe Williams limped off after half an hour.

Everton lined up in their usual 4-2-3-1 for their second pre-season fixture but there was nothing familiar about the sight of Kevin Mirallas at right-back, with the Belgium international – who spent last season on loan at Fiorentina – struggling with his defensive duties early on.

Coleman’s introduction meant that Mirallas could be pushed forward into his more recognised wide-midfield role but the Belgian was one of six players hooked at half-time.

Marco Silva’s starting XI would have been of little interest to many Fantasy managers, with the Toffees’ most-popular FPL assets either watching on from the bench or, in the case of Richarlison (£8.0m), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.0m) and Yerry Mina (£5.5m), still on a post-international duty breather.

Idrissa Gana Gueye (£5.0m) must now surely be a doubt for Gameweek 1, meanwhile, after Senegal made it through to the final of the Africa Cup of Nations, which takes place three weeks before the start of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

Michael Keane and Andre Gomes (both £5.5m) were the only regular first-team players to start Sunday’s match in Switzerland, although there were also run-outs for the likes of Leighton Baines (£5.0m), Morgan Schneiderlin (£4.5m) and Tom Davies (£5.5m).

Oumar Niasse, back from his loan spell at Cardiff, toiled up front to no great effect, while new signing Jonas Lossl began the match between the posts.

It was no surprise that Everton looked more threatening after the introduction of their heavy hitters, with Sigurdsson striking the woodwork on two occasions in the second half.

Bernard (£6.5m) also forced a save from the home goalkeeper with a low shot.

Centre-back Mason Holgate and youngster Nathan Broadhead were the only two players to last the full game, with Broadhead impressing on either flank.

Ademola Lookman (£5.0m) and Cenk Tosun (£6.0m) weren’t involved as they fight their way back from injury although were part of the travelling squad.

Everton first-half XI (4-2-3-1): Lossl, Mirallas, Keane, Holgate, Baines, Schneiderlin, Gomes, Williams (Coleman, 31), Davies, Broadhead, Niasse.

Everton second-half XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford, Coleman (Connolly 80′), Holgate, Gibson, Digne, McCarthy, Gomes (Adeniran ’61), Broadhead, Sigurdsson, Bernard, Niasse (Hornby ’54).

SCR Altach 1-1 Southampton

Ralph Hasenhuttl ditched the wing-back system in Southampton’s first pre-season game
  • Goal: Che Adams (£6.0m)
  • Assist: Shane Long (£5.0m)

Che Adams (£6.0m) took less than two minutes of his first Southampton appearance to open his account.

The summer signing from Birmingham City finished smartly after turning his marker on the edge of the box, with Shane Long (£5.0m) claiming the assist having rolled a low ball across from the left flank.

The dangerous Adams also struck the post when clean through on goal and then saw an effort hacked off the line after rounding home goalkeeper Martin Kobras.

Ralph Hasenhuttl said of his new striker:

Che could have scored three times, I think. He was a little bit unlucky, but he made the first goal, which was important for him.

He showed from the first moment on that he can help us next season, and I’m happy that he is with us.

Adams himself said:

I definitely could’ve had more – as a striker you get greedy, but it’s the first game. I just try to cause a threat to the defence and create chances.

I feel perfect. I’ve had a hard pre-season, but the lads have dug in well and we’ve got more games to come.

I’ve learned a lot about the team and how the gaffer wants us to play.

Adams lined up in a front two alongside Long as Hasenhuttl rolled out his favoured 4-2-2-2 formation, with Josh Sims and Mohamed Elyounoussi (£5.5m) providing support behind them.

There were chances at both ends and the Saints’ narrow system sometimes left them looking exposed, with Manfred Fischer equalising with a spectacular strike midway through the first half.

Hasenhuttl changed all 11 players at the break and there were 45-minute run-outs for Nathan Redmond (£6.5m), James Ward-Prowse (£6.0m) and Danny Ings (£6.0m) in the second half.

Ings couldn’t prod the ball past Kobras when played through on goal while Redmond, playing in the attacking midfield two behind strike pair Ings and Dan N’Lundulu, also dragged a shot wide.

Michael Obafemi and Jannik Vestergaard (both £5.0m) made returns from injury after missing the closing weeks of the 2018/19 campaign, meanwhile.

Angus Gunn was an unused substitute as Alex McCarthy and Fraser Forster (all £4.5m) shared game-time between the posts.

Moussa Djenepo (£5.5m) didn’t feature as he has been given time off following his exertions for Mali at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Southampton first-half XI (4-2-2-2): McCarthy, Valery, Yoshida, Vestergaard, Bertrand, Romeu, Hojbjerg, Sims, Elyounoussi, Long, Adams.

Southampton second-half XI (4-2-2-2): Forster, Cedric, Stephens, Bednarek, Vokins, Ward-Prowse, Smallbone, Redmond, Obafemi, Ings, N’Lundulu.

    Did not change team for a weeks, is it good?

    Ryan
    Taa, Robertson, Laporte, Digne
    Salah, Sterling, Sigurdson, Perez
    Delufeu, King

    1. sirmorbach
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      This is pretty much my team. Same logic, same structure, same premises. Only differences are VVD instead of Robbo, Coleman instead of Digne, Madds over Perez, Jota over Deulofeu.

      Which means I like it.

      1. Lignja
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I now thinking so swap Ryan, Robo, and Laporte for Ederson, Maguire and Vvd

        1. sirmorbach
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Hmmm. Not bad.

    2. Bullet Eder
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Same as mine except I've gone for Brooks and Wood over Perez and Deulofeu. I think we're on the right lines, haven't seen anything to convince me otherwise so far.

    3. antis0cial
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I’m on same team apart from keeper!

      I am considering switching keeper/Laporte/Deul to Ederson/Dunk/Giroud. Only if dunk goes to Leicester. Going to monitor who looks like starting up top for Chelsea.

    4. pokern1nja09
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Identical to mine, but I prefer deeney over Deulofeu. For pens and because of Deulofeu’s position change

  2. sirmorbach
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Lads, here's my team atm:

    Ryan
    TAA, VVD, Laporte, Coleman (Diop)
    Salah, Sterling, Siggy, Madds (Dendoncker)
    King, Jota

    Would you
    A. Keep it as is or
    B. Laporte to 4.5, Dendoncker to Brooks (3-5-2)
    C. Laporte to 4.0, Dendoncker to 7.0 mid [Who?] (3-5-2)

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I think Digne worth the extra 0.5 over Coleman. Then Laporte to walker?

    2. antis0cial
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Of those A. I’d be tempted to downgrade Madison to Perez, then you can get Digne. Not sure Mads is worth the extra money.

    3. svg53
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Agree with Antisocial
      Madds to Perez
      Coleman to Digne
      Plus
      Ryan to Pope/Heaton

  3. The Royal Robin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 7 days ago

      B for me

      I have Zinchenko as a placeholder in my team but I’m not feeling it. Cs only and uncertain starts compared to Laporte.

      I think my real preference would be Fraser and Azpi

      1. The Royal Robin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Already own Fraser, he's 100% in my team.

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Ah

          He doesn’t seem so popular round here which I find curious. It mostly seems to be about Siggy.

          But back to your question I like Maddison not least because he’s got much better support around him and something to aim at in Vardy. I’m also unconvinced by fixture runs for teams like Everton especially this time of the year.

          My balanced midfield is

          Mo Fraser KdB Maddison

          (Have a big hitter version too)

  4. Tinmen
    • 6 Years

    I see people going with Zincheko, but surely a fit Mendy(which is looking likely) will start ahead of him?

    He was fantastic before he got injured last season I recall

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      How is fit Mendy "looking likely"? Hes not even part of the pre season tour...

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Because he is on the mendy

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          😆

    2. ★Kuntheman★
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Pep seems kinda sick of Mendy's crap, and Mendy has not even made the squad for preseason. Zinchenko got a new number too, Kolarov's number actually. Shows he's really breaking into Pep's thinking.

      1. The Royal Robin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        He's made comments about Mendy before such as he drives him insane. I think Zinchenko is the plan long-term, but obviously we'd like an answer sooner rather than later. I can see him playing the shield match and his ownership rocketing from 2.2% to 8%.

    3. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Problem is mendy is rated too highly as a player due to his impact he had on FPL. Same was Alonso was last year, he has a legacy on FPL but anyone who watched him play, unbiased, knows he cannot defend and didn’t deserve a place in the starting 11. This is the same as the mendy case.
      The signing on Angelino is a dagger in mendy’s heart

      1. The Royal Robin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Yeah you make a valid point Ask Yourself. Mendy is down the pecking order surely. I mean, besides his escapades he is a walking sick note too.

      2. ★Kuntheman★
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        This is along the lines of what I think. He's amazing offensively but a complete liability defensively and an absolute joke when it comes to taking any part of the game seriously. Even I'm kinda sick of him. He's basically an overpaid social media manager, and it's so frustrating when you see the potential he has if he took the game seriously. Angelino's signing was basically a "I don't even trust you to be a backup" signing when it comes to Mendy.

        If he sorts his crap out, I could see Zinchenko join our midfield ranks. But it does not seem likely.

        1. The Royal Robin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          He's Balotelli II, basically.

          1. ★Kuntheman★
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            At least Balotelli was occasionally useful

        2. The Royal Robin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          The other thing is if Sane goes... Can Zinc play as a LM?

          1. ★Kuntheman★
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Lmfao trust me if we're getting 100m for Sane we're getting a replacement

      Zinchenko Laporte double up (or even Ederson-Zinchenko) would be lovely if this happens

        • 9 Years

        Zinc will rise to 5.8 in the first week if he starts week 1, good chance of that, can always ship to whatever Liverpool 5.5 starts if you have money spare ( because he may rise that first night).

  5. pingissimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Big hitters galore

    Heaton Pope Gunn
    TAA Robbo Digne Zinchenko
    Mo Sterling Perez Dendo
    Kane Deulofeu

    Not especially convinced by Digne so may get Azpi. Also dubious about Zinchenko. Trips? Possibly Fab and a nailed Holebas.

    The downside is the 2 pointer in midfield but it seems a fair price.

    1. HIT ME!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I think Dendoncker is excellent for bench. Wouldnt wanna play him every week. But the rest is looking very good ofc.
      Kane down to 11.0 is good but personally I'm still not tempted. Didnt pass the eyetest for me last year or so. Think Vardy can compete for 2m more.

      1. HIT ME!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Yep that’s a temptation. There’s a variation where I take done money from defence and go Mo Sterling KdB Vardy

        But Kane just returned really well for me last year before he got crocked. 11 mill feels too good to turn down.

          Why do you want so many big hitters anyway? Isn't two captaincy options enough?

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 7 days ago

            I don’t know that I do.

            I’m playing with variations and deciding how I’d like to play it this year. This one attracts as a short term play if I decide to WC early. I’d be unlucky to fall behind and with multiple big hitters I think I’d be in with a chance of getting ahead of those stuck on 6.5 options who look long term value

            If I decide to try and hold off I’ll probably go down a more balanced route

    A) Zinchenko Brooks Wilson Deulofeu
    B) Holebas Fraser King Jimenez

    1. AuFeld
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      A, because Holebas is a card magnate and Jimenez doesn't bode well with the lack of rest and Europa competition.

      Deulofeu can easily be swapped to Barnes, Wood, DCL, Adams, etc.

      Two pool defenders and none of them are Trent, the one on set pieces.
      Kante? 2-3 points every gw with maybe 2g+2a.. No thanks. Better to get a decent 4th defender.
      Richarlison tend to do good in the beginning of the season but prefer Sigurdsson.

      No he is not. Wilshere, Lanzini, fornals all competing in his spot

        Balsa wood Wilshire maybe but the other two are further forward.

        1. Ask Yourself
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Not if we play a city style 4141 with Lanzini and fornals CMs and rice CDM. It is more likely Wilshere plays there though as he is an important part of pellegrini’s plans this year. Noble SHOULD start the season but I wouldn’t be surprised if not

          1. circusmonkey
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years

            We can't play in City's style.

  12. Kante Touch This

    3 months, 7 days ago

    Which combo gets works better?

    A)Kane + 6m striker (DCL?)

    B)Vardy + Wilson(or Jimi)

    Kane is most captain worthy out of the 4 but with Mo and Sterling in mid he won't receive it often

    Acc to Sun

    Manchester United have agreed a world-record £80m deal for Leicester defender Harry Maguire, with the England ace set for a medical on Monday.
    Leicester have agreed a £45m deal for Brighton defender Lewis Dunk.

    So end of Maguire to city?

      anyway, these transfer fees are absurd.
      If true, might trigger City to go for Ake?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I think the transfer prices are money laundering schemes. Just a way to move dollars around. The teams probably just pay 25% of the fee, the rest is probably just middle men buying military contraband for Iran, North Korea and other nefarious entities.

      2. Sir EFO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Agree that these types of money are ridiculous even more for these types of players ... Juventus pay less for De Light

    3. Vasqujg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      City probably added 20M to the price that MU had to pay, just by dabbling in the drama. Brilliant strategy to make MUs moves more expensive.

      Maguire is terrible- slow and bad on the ball.

      Dunk is about the same player, so Leicester are the winners here

    I'm fully sold on Callum Robinson @ 5.5m. Scored 12 in 27 for Preston last season (from left wing) & had some highly impressive underlying stats. Listed as a midfielder but will be playing in a front 2 for Sheffield United.

    1. ★Kuntheman★
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I'm not sure if Sheffield is going to do well enough but he would be a decent pick if they do well. Fixtures look awful though.

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Oh the fixtures look half decent to me. In the first 5 they have

        Bournemouth
        Palace
        Leicester
        Chelsea
        Soton

        That’s too of last season’s leakiest defences and Palace Leicester are at home.

            I stopped it after 5 weeks for a reason!

            5 week planning interests me as you have a majority of home or away fixtures. Right now it seems a reasonable time frame as WC mini or otherwise will be on the cards by then.

            Still not horrible fixtures for a promoted side who are an unknown quantity. Majority at home and two poor defences from last season. I can see it as 6.0 punt territory

            Doos seems to think its Antonio's spot to lose though. I'll have to keep an eye on how the rest of their preseason goes.

        Why would you get Gayle? He was at WBA..

  15. Ole Trafford
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Another draft... Gomez/Zinchenko obviously are only going to be there if pre season/shield implies they are first choice!

    Pope
    Zinchenko, Gomez, Cathcart
    Salah, Sterling, Moura, Perez
    Kane, Wilson, Origi

    Button, Dendonker, Dunk, Kelly

    I’m considering Moura to Fraser or Zaha +.5m. But maybe after gw1.

    1. Kante Touch This
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      How are you going to get a replacement Lpool player in for Gomez if he's not first choice?

      1. OLDHERMAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        He who dares wins. 😉

      2. Ole Trafford
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        If it doesn’t look like he will be first choice then I will do Wilson to King and Gomez to TAA

    2. The 5% Team

      Early WC written all over it but you could get off to an absolute flyer. People are going to hate on it because it's so different but you've got serious firepower there. If Zinchenko and Gomez both start and Origi and Moura do well you'll be laughing.

      1. Ole Trafford
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Well WC gw3 or 4 may not be the worst if it gets off well!

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Would you rather have him than Salah, Robbo, TAA or VvD?

      1. The 5% Team
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 7 days ago

        nope...most won't I reckon, hence being a differential...because I think he would do very well again

  17. Witty Pun: Not good at this…

    Ryan
    TAA Robbo Laporte Coleman
    Salah Maddi Sterling Robinson

    Any improvements?

  19. Tinmen

    3 months, 7 days ago

    Folks, why is almost everyone choosing Deulefeu over Deeney?

    I get that he had more points last season, but Deeney we know will definitely be playing as a striker this year

    1. Pigeon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Because it's Deeney

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Is Deeney even nailed? I know he's the club captain but he was benched for Gray at times last season. Could see more of that with him a year older.

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Deulofeu seems a terrible pick. He will play around 66% of minutes.

    4. HIT ME!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I've been thinking about this too. Deulofeu scored 10 times last season but I believe it was 4 agaist xxx and 3 against xxx. 7 goals in two games and 3 in the remaining ones. Could be wrong though.
      However, if I'd get any of them I think it would probably be Deeney.

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

        Should add this*
        I see the potential. Reclassified as a striker means less points.

      2. Gregg Wallace
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        He definitely didn't score 4 in one game, I would have remembered that if it happened lol

        1. Norman Conquest
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          he scored 3 against cardiff and 2 against huds both away the rest were single goals

      Looking at a lot of these RMTs I feel a lot of people need to be reminded of the golden rule.

      Pick nailed on starters.

      If half the teams have Mendy in them and half the teams have Zinchenko in them then it’s safe to say that with so many other options, neither are a good pick.

      I’d say following this rule has been one of the main contributors to the fact that I’m able to boast of the history and standing I have in the game.

      Mods, I don’t mind if you HT this.

        "If half the teams have Mendy in them and half the teams have Zinchenko in them then it’s safe to say that with so many other options, neither are a good pick."

        One of them are probably nailed on to start at least. That means that one of them is a good pick.
        Zinchenko, an attacking winger, for 1m less than Laporte is worth a lot to my team.

        Will probably play on the right of the front 3. He’s the teachers pet so I can see him play a lot more than last season.

          He played nearly all of last season to be fair. On the right wing too.

        One of the main positives about him is how much Pep loves him. Looks least likely to be rotated I suppose. Also with so many, imo, poor defences this season I can see Liverpool and City racking up some very high scores against teams.

        Don’t own him myself though.

          Is Sterling essential if not captaining him for the first 3 weeks at least? I've convinced myself I don't need him and KDB is fine for now. The extra 2.5m goes a long way upgrading the rest of the team.

          Exactly - all people will do on here is tell you to get rid of your non-template players and replace them with template players. It's not a coincidence that the top players don't post RMTs

        Well, it depends. Have you factored in all the Everton outfield players you are likely to select? At 5.5, Pickford is nearly premium.

        Ryan, on the other hand, while solid, will not score you many.

        1. amsemp

          Have Digne and Siggy in the squad already. If Bilva is part of Pep’s rotation roulette then I think I would rather have Pickford & Zaha, but many seem to think Bilva is fairly nailed which I think might just sway me to give him a punt

      Feel like I’m set on this for now:
      Pope
      Zinchenko, TAA, VVD, Coleman
      De Bruyne, Salah, Sterling, Perez
      King, Deulofeu
      Bench: Woodman, Dendoncker, Diop, Greenwood

      How’s it looking?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Pretty good but I think you would need a vardy or better in the striker position

    • Pinball Wizard
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      If Man Utd signs Maguire I would be tempted to get DDG at 5.5. Their defense will be more solid than last year with him and AWB and as their fixtures are kind of bad, it means he should get plenty of save points as well.

      here's my first draft, back to drawing board or minor tweaks?

      Ryan/Button
      Coleman/TAA/VvD/ Walker (kelly)
      Salah/Richarlison/KDB/Noble* (Dendoncker)
      Vardy/ Wilson / Adams*

      * Noble and Adams would be rotated
      And yes, I really really want Wilson

        Wilson is good. I am not a fan of two Liverpool defenders, myself.

        A few tweaks, Walker > Zinc, Coleman > Digne, then create a good 6.5 mid with the 11 in Adams & Noble, maybe Tielemans or Perez and you've a decent base to tinker with.

        Wilson is a good call.
        I can't find the cash for him over King and really not happy about it.
        I don't know about Walker if you can't find .5 for Laporte. Azpi / Luiz could be a good option at 6.0
        Hope Adams does good and has placed nailed. Has a pre season goal under his belt already.

          Yeah, im not happy with Walker's output at RB either, but he seems safer for starts than say, trippier. Azpi is a good shout too

            It is speculative but I think Wilson should be first choice until he misses
