          Atm I have no City players so you can imagine how painful this could be.

      A Firmino brace will cause me a headache

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Sane start and masterclass or Sterling haul will screw me up

      On point!

      Loads of Coleman > Gomez today. 😉

      Began yesterday for me with a wonderful 2-1 win away to Stoke.

      I’m going! Wooo-ooo.

      I’ll try to resist the temptation to post a match report on here 😉

    GTG?

    Pope - Heaton
    TAA - VVD - Coleman - Stones - Lundstram
    Salah - Bilva - Fraser - Perez - Dendoncker
    Aubameyang - Wood - Wesley

    Thanks!

    1. boomshakeboom

      nice looking team..

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I would upgrade Bilva to KDB by downgrading Heaton or Pope and Stones, otherwise I like the team bar Sterling

    3. Nomar
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Stones is a bargain if he's nailed this term.

    Which 4.5 defender you guys recomend? Currently on Dunk.

    1. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Taylor, Targett or that new RB from Villa.

        Interesting. What makes you sure he'll start?

        1. FPL Virgin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Isn't he top for minutes played in preseason?

          1. Wild Rover
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years

            I've learned the hard way that's no guarantee

            1. FPL Virgin
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              I wouldn't trust Emery to start anyone.

              1. Nomar
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 19 days ago

                Words of truth and wisdom.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Because holding has been injured they had no choice but he is back in training now I think ?

            1. Exeterslowly
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              I can’t see either starting as they are not to decent standard. They will get someone eat in this week.

              1. Ask Yourself
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 19 days ago

                Holding is very good. They are however linked with a loan with obligation to buy Umtiti of barca which would be an unreal move and leave arsenal with maybe the second best team in the league behind city

                1. Emp
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 7 Years

                  Lol what a ridiculous comment

              2. Qaiss
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 19 days ago

                Holding before he got injured last season was doing really well and if we don't sign a centre back, he will be starting most weeks alongside Sokratis as those 2 are currently our best defenders

    3. Exeterslowly
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I have fredericks

    4. MadDog86
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Diop after GW1

      1. Exeterslowly
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Any reason why you wouldn’t go with fredericks but Diop surely better attacking returns?

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          You'd think Fredericks as a wingback would deliver more, but if you look at his record last season, he actually delivered naff all.

          1. Exeterslowly
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            I think he was injured but they don’t have a lot of options at RB so I think he is pretty much nailed on. Any hammers fans on here to confirm whether he has played any decent pre season games

        2. MadDog86
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Not convinced Fredericks is nailed but I’m no Hammers expert. Think Diop will play and need a safe starter with my Kane, Salah, Sterling team.

    5. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Montoya, Femenia, Taylor, Diop, Dunk

    6. Kaptenen
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Aarons

    7. wycombewanderers
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I'm on Adam Smith

    8. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Currently on Montoya. Apparently he’s been playing RWB.

      1. Exeterslowly
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Brighton defender (apart from dunk) really?

        1. Galza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          From a fellow Devonian too. 🙂
          I hadn’t considered him myself until I got talked round. He’s being deployed as a RWB and with Brighton apparently playing a more attacking style of football, I think he’s as good a pick as anyone.
          Can always swap to someone else if he doesn’t pan out. Ty

    9. Twitchy

      Thx alot everyone, now it went from hard to harder

      1. Exeterslowly
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        All I would say is that a West Ham def rotates with a Burnley def really well hence Taylor and fredericks.

    10. Society
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Twitchy,
      $4.5 DEF I'm considering include ;
      Soyuncu
      Lascelles
      Vinagre
      Lowton
      Guilbert
      Targett
      Dunk

  5. FPL Mountaineer
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 19 days ago

    I need some suggestions for a 3rd striker. Need someone who plays regularly, perfectly fit, and within 7.0 or less. Please suggest the best option and give me your reasons. Thanks.

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      At 7m Abraham at Chelsea, but maybe not that sharp.
      6.5m Jota - great striker but EL factor
      6.5m Wood at Burnley - finished last season well and on fire in pre-season. Tricky early fixtures
      6.5 King - easy opening fixtures, not that sharp
      Deeney and Deulofeu at Watford - nice opening fixtures
      Below 6.5 quality either takes a dive or are new to PL. For fixtures, Wesley might be worth a punt.

      1. FPL Mountaineer
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 19 days ago

        I had Deulofeu at the start but seeing that he's having injury woes, I'm looking for an ideal replacement. I don't trust King enough, so I guess Jota could be the only realistic option. Deeney could be another given the fixtures as you said. I'll consider that. Thanks.

    2. wycombewanderers
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      This dilemma caused me to save 1m elsewhere and get Wilson

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Wood, Benteke

    4. Pukki Party
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      There's a hot topic on this

    5. Our Tiny Servant
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Abraham the best choice.

    6. Emp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Jota

    7. Society
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I'm looking at ; Kean (EVT), King, Deulofeu & Batshuayi.

  6. Kaptenen
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Head says McGinn, gut says Robinson.. Both have done well in pre-season, who would you choose and why?

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      McGinn appears more nailed to me.

    2. Zim0
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Always go with gut even if it's wrong. I've chosen with my head many times and gut was usually the better option.

      1. Exeterslowly
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Not always zimo. I had a curry last night and my gut isn’t great today. Wish I went with my head and had something else

        1. Nomar
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Never regret a curry.

          1. Exeterslowly
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Tell that to my gut!

        2. Zim0
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Hahaha okay u win in this instance.

    3. Exeterslowly
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Sheff utd have bought two strikers since so Robinson may not start. Mcginn has had a great pre season so I’d go for him

  7. wycombewanderers
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Think I'm set but would appreciate any comments, haven't kept up this pre season. Potentially a but light in defence...

    Ryan, Button
    Robertson, Digne, Smith, Holebas/KWP, Kelly
    Salah, Sterling, Perez, Barkley, Dendoncker
    Kane, Wilson, Greenwood

    Thanks all!

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Pretty good considering you managed to get Sterling, Salah and Kane in one team.

    2. Exeterslowly
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Is that smith from Bournemouth. I thought he was injured?

      1. wycombewanderers
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Yes it is - thanks I didn't know that

        1. wycombewanderers
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          It seemed like he played yesterday v Lyon

          1. Exeterslowly
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            It might have been cook then. For some reason I get mixed up with those two

            1. Exeterslowly
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              Still don’t think I would pick him as Bournemouth are so attacking

    3. Funny Face
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      This is very similar to where I am. I'm not convinced by Wilson and I am releasing funds in this area to improve the defence. I have gone for Ings which may be too cheap and I'm looking for a middle ground.

    4. billnats
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Very similar to me besides sharing the love up forward. Went for 2x6.5 forwards instead of Wilson.

    5. Corgzzzz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      One of the better SSK teams posted.

  8. Zladan
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    If City and LFC field full strength XIs today and the pre season form of both continues...

    Do you keep faith in double LFC defence?
    Do you double up on City attack?

    No doubt with the fixtures you will want 3*LFC though. Maybe Firmino becomes a more attractive option today.

    1. Qaiss
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Value up front is difficult to find, but Firmino will be a great option for when they play us in GW3. He always, always scores big against us for some strange reason

    2. Society
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Zladan, I chose;
      Bur/Bur
      Liv/Liv/Cit/Tot/Lec
      Cit/Cit/Tot/Man/Lec
      Bou/Wat/Man

      Gameweeks 16 & 29 see the side have 3 players up against Liv/Cit, (2 or less every other week).
      Gameweeks 12 & 32 see Liv vs Cit ..... so of course I already know when I'm using my free hit.

      1. Zladan
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Do you not fancy Everton over Leicester?

        1. Society
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Not especially.

  9. Gudjohnsen
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Rate my 25th draft?

    Ryan
    Van Dijk, TAA, Maguire
    B.Silva, Barkley, Salah, A.Perez, Sigurðsson
    Kane, Wilson

    Subs: Button, Kelly, Simpson, Greenwood

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Icelandic?

      1. Gudjohnsen
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Yes

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Cool - nice team but not sure on both Siggy and Silva. Everton not prolific in preseason but understand if you want to keep Siggy.

          1. Gudjohnsen
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Which City midfielder would you go for? Can't afford Sterling because I have feeling about Kane but I want to have one City midfielder.

            1. Wild Rover
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              See what happens with Sane or KDB today. You could afford them by downgrading Siggy to a 6.5m

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Will wait until your 26th ...

    3. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Not feeling Siggy at all. By far the best forwards imo. I'd downgrade Siggy and upgrade Greenwood but that's just me.

    4. Exeterslowly
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I was going to say I had doubts about siggy but since you are Icelandic...

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Bias towards your own team or country or against your football enemies is a killer in this game

        1. Gudjohnsen
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          But I support Liverpool and they were by far the best fantasy options last season.

          1. Wild Rover
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            But that wasn't bias, it was common sense

          You are right grandad. I’m a Liverpool fan and in one season I refused to get any Man U players and it cost me dearly.

        Correct moves.

      My concern is your midfield having an 8.0 slot and an 8.0 slot. If one of those can be 9.5 so you can put KDB/Pepe/Son in there you’ll be laughing.

    Morning. Been pretty settled on this for a week or so. Just the jota and fraser places to think about.

    Any views on this please?

    Pope button
    TAA robbo digne zinchenko rico
    Salah sterling fraser perez dendonk
    Wilson jota Greenwood

    Thanks

    1. The Fantasy Doctor

      Similar to mine but I downgraded Robertson to VVD and Digne Coleman to get Laporte. Just means I’m more assured all defenders play.

      1. Flynny
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Not a bad shout

        Thanks

        1. Exeterslowly
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          I have Kane in but Fraser and a pool defender out. I have had Kane in and out several times but finished off thinking he is a must have striker.

          1. Flynny
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            This is also a possibility

            Guess if lpool don't look good today many will e tempted by this

      2. B.D.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Robbo to VVD and Zinc to Walker makes the same trick if you want to keep Digne.

    Why is the above article talking about City towards the end of the season? They were obviously going to tighten up a bit and see games out in the final stretch as they went for the title.

    Also it should note that City have reopened talks about signing the right back from Juventus so Walker may not be the secure pick claimed in the above.

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Agree. End of season nerves aswell as other competitions. City’s line up for the last couple games is nothing like the one that will start this season

      1. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Good point. They were in every cup competition available at the time.

    2. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Why would anyone even care about the end of the season right now?

      1. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        My point exactly. Which is why it's strange and of not much use when it comes to GW1 planning.

    3. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Yes, I just read it and had the same apprehension. The conclusion for me is that they're likely to start the season all-guns a-blazin'.

  12. jbatchelor3003

    Long time reader...maybe my 1st post. Greatly appreciate any feedback.
    Pope/Ryan
    Coleman/TAA/Zinchenko/Targett/Lundst.
    Fraser/Sterling/Perez/Pulisic/Pepe
    King/Origi/Haller
    £2m in the bank

    Thanks in advance

    1. FPL Virgin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Get rid of Origi. Don't plan transfers in advance.

      1. jbatchelor3003
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        My thought too...maybe 1st 2 games but alot of risk after that. I feel fading Salah makes the team really lopsided but reckon Mane at least will b benched 1st game.

    2. The Fantasy Doctor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 19 days ago

      King to Wilson. Just something relaxing about having Wilson and Fraser.

      1. jbatchelor3003
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Thank you. There fixtures r so gd but both Everton and Bournemouth always seem to tease a gd run. I'll have a play.

    3. MrBoombastic
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      A lot of risks there gw1.

      I'd maybe swap pepe with the idea to get him a few weeks in if he's going mad.

      1. jbatchelor3003
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        I was thinking Pepe to Lacazette for now. I reckon Arsenal r gonna have a quietly gd season. I like there team. Thank you

    4. jbatchelor3003
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I'm keeping an eye on the Dybala and Fernandes situation too. Team changing players imo. I reckon Chelsea is gonna b a bargain bin...but sk do u all so no surprise there

  13. Kloppcorn
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Any advice on this team would be a big help:
    Pope (Button)
    TAA VVD Zinchenko (Taylor) (Lundstram)
    Salah Sterling Perez Barkley Mcginn
    Auba Adams (Greenwood)

    Looking to rotate Mcginn and Taylor depending on fixture

  14. AD2110
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Can’t make my mind about which time:

    A)
    Pope,
    TAA, Laporte, VVD
    Salah, Perez, McGinn, Sterling, Sig
    Wilson, Jota

    B)
    Pope,
    TAA, Digne, VVD
    Salah, Perez, McGinn, KDB
    Wilson, Auba/Kane, Jota

    Bench on both teams are fodder

    1. Poppa Klopp
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      A

    2. FPL Mountaineer
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      B

  15. Poppa Klopp
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Ok, final tweaks now...

    A) Wilson & 4.0 def bench
    Or
    B) king & Utd defender

    A Im starting with 3 top defenders
    B leaves more room for upgrades in the team

    1. TONY123
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      If the Utd defender is a starter - B

      1. Poppa Klopp
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Tony, thanks to £80mil and £50mil plus shaw already the Utd defenders are 5.5, difference between Wilson and King is 1.5mil...

        1. TONY123
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          I meant starter in your team. I would not put a 4.0 def in my starting XI.

          1. Poppa Klopp
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Yeah, fair point. It means I downgrade a mid to bench and upgrade one of my starting 11 - i’ll Figure out whoa nd ask the bigger question

    2. wycombewanderers

  16. MrBoombastic
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Hi Guys

    Well off template I think - please let me know your views

    Pope / Button
    TAA / Coleman / Bertrand (Montoya / Diop)
    Sterling / KDB / Pedro / Perez / Fornals
    Kane / Adams / Wesley

    Not sure if I'm trying to be too clever but aiming to use this for around first 6/7 weeks.

    Any advice much appreciated

    1. TONY123
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Nice, Fornals and Pedro could be great differentials. Only 1 Liverpool player could be an issue though.

    2. Rossi3254
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Think there are just too many differential picks in there, Adams, Wesley and Fornals are unproven In the Prem being the main 3 and while it could work out and give you a great start could equally backfire and put you a long way behind the field

    3. Emp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Pedro is not nailed

  17. Celt Abroad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    A - Kdb and Pérez
    B - Siggy and Fraser

    1. ajones1608
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      A anyday, KDB class above those players and perez could outscore both also

    2. Kloppcorn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      A without a doubt

  18. ajones1608
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Do i...

    A). Go VVD to Robertson (have TAA)

    B). 5th defender increase to 4.5

    C). Increase 4m second keeper to 4.5m

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      A: no real need imo… might be wrong
      B: any real value to the points you'll gain
      C: def no imo
      D: bank the .5. better having it on hand rather than wasting -4 on trying to free it up later if needed for transfer target

    2. TONY123
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Out of those options, I'd do neither and keep 0.5 itb - that could come in very handy

    3. Gudjohnsen
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Not C IMO. I am contemplating A.

  19. cylus11 ( Manager) - Russia…
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    I would like to start with 4-5-1 this season:
    Pope
    TAA, Coleman, Digne, Lundstarm, Zinchenko
    Sterling, Salah, Barkley, Fraser, B Silva,
    Wilson
    subs: Heaton Niketah, Greenwood, Rico.

    Thoughts plz

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      5 starters at the back? who's out?

      1. cylus11 ( Manager) - Russia…
        • 8 Years

        Lundstarm on the bench

          • 9 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          good team that. drop 1 5.5gk to a 4mil gk.

          you'll need the .5 in case of injury outfield

  20. kennethrhcp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    A: Bilva
    B: Richarlison
    C: Siggy
    D: Zaha (use 1mil elsewhere)

    1. TONY123
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Not a fan of either of these tbh. Probably A or C. I'd consider Martial above all of these 4.

      1. kennethrhcp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

  21. jimmyabs1987

    2 months, 19 days ago

    Latest draft:

    Fabianski (button)
    Digne, TAA, Laporte, (Kelly, Simpson)
    Salah, Sterling, Perez, Robinson, KDB
    (Greenwood), King, Deulefaou

    I like it but I think there is one more move to be made. I had Siggi/Barkley but switched to KDB/Robinson but had to downgrade Robbo to Digne

    Robinson/Siggi/Barkley

    Or

    KDB/Robinson(SHU)/Digne

    Also, is Delf injured for Watford?

    1. Son of a Gunn

      B

  22. billnats
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    A) Fraser & Ayew
    B) McGinn & Jota/Abraham

    The players in B are such a tease this preseason

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I like the price spread of B. More flexibility.

    2. billnats
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      or C) Barkley & Jota

      B obviously leaves me enough money for a 7.0 forward (Abraham)

    1. Society
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Yes, for us fantasy players, Cancelo is worth more than Maguire, but for MUTD, locking up def & playing well from the back is worth $100mil.

    I think this is the one, subject to confidence in Zapacostas start

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      0% change

    2. 11SPECIALONE11
      • 4 Years

      As a Chelsea fan I would say there is a 15% chance Zappa starts

  29. ajones1608
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Not alot of 4.5 options in defence this year.. Top 3? Any you'd be happy to start?

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      There's loads. Just this silly 5 expensive at the back template throwing people off

  30. Whats the Mata?
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Assuming City don't sign a new centre back, don't y'all think Stones is the cheapest safest route into that City defense?

    Walker now has competition with Cancelo (if he arrives) and Zinchenko while I think will be first choice still has competition from Angelino and Mendy.

    Whilst Stones still has Otamendi chasing him for the spot, I think Stones will be less threatened by rotation as compared to Zinchenko or Walker.

    Thoughts?

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Wouldn’t be desperate for a city defence with stones in. Feel he can easily lose his place to Ota

    2. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Yep, I’d go with Stones if they weren’t playing West Ham away and then Spurs. Then Bournemouth. Might not keep a CS until GW4.

      Or they’ll wipe the floor in every game.
