Heavy Chelsea defeat offers hope to owners of Leicester assets

Manchester United’s demolition of Chelsea could be a positive omen for those amongst us who have invested in Leicester City’s attacking players.

The Foxes drew a blank against Wolves on Sunday but owners of Jamie Vardy (£9.0m) et al will be hoping that Chelsea’s second-half capitulation in Manchester is indicative of deeper defensive problems, with Brendan Rodgers’ side in action at Stamford Bridge in Gameweek 2.

United got their season off to a dream start but their victory, as we will discuss, was not quite as one-sided as the scoreline suggested.

Our final Scout Notes article of Gameweek 1 also examines the main Fantasy talking points on Tyneside as Arsenal edged past Newcastle United.

Manchester United 4-0 Chelsea

  • Goals: Marcus Rashford (£8.5m) x2, Anthony Martial (£7.5m), Daniel James (£6.0m)
  • Assists: Andreas Pereira (£5.0m), Paul Pogba (£8.5m) x2

Marcus Rashford (£8.5m) downplayed suggestions that he was Manchester United’s new first-choice penalty taker after scoring from the spot in Sunday’s 4-0 win over Chelsea.

Rashford won and converted a 17th-minute spot-kick to give the Red Devils the lead but afterwards said that there were ‘four or five’ United assets who could potentially step up from 12 yards.

The England striker said:

I wouldn’t say I’m the penalty-taker. There’s four or five players that are 100% comfortable being in that situation. For the keepers it’s more difficult, they don’t know who’s going to take it.

Paul Pogba (£8.5m) took ten of United’s 12 Premier League penalties last season, scoring seven of them, while Jesse Lingard (£6.5m) and Anthony Martial (£7.5m) also netted on one occasion each.

Rashford, meawhile, scored from the spot against PSG in the Champions League in March, while Juan Mata (£6.5m) found the back of the net from 12 yards against Reading in the FA Cup in January.

It is worth noting that Pogba, Martial and Lingard were all on the field when Rashford took this latest penalty, although it could be that United’s players are adopting a similar approach to Burnley’s Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes (both £6.5m) and taking penalties that they themselves earn.

Whatever the system, the suggestion that Pogba doesn’t have the monopoly at spot-kick situations is something of a blow to his Fantasy appeal.

Seven of Pogba’s 13 goals last season came from the spot and his expected goals total of 15.11 was halved when penalties were taken out of the equation (an xG non-penalty of 7.23, inferior to 31 other players).

Having occasionally played as a number ten under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Pogba’s role in the double-pivot of a 4-2-3-1 would also seem to be detrimental to his goal threat – the Frenchman had just one effort on Sunday.

Assists will no doubt continue to flow, however.

The France international has reached double figures for those in the last two seasons and he began 2019/20 with another two, setting up Rashford and substitute Daniel James (£6.0m) for United’s third and fourth goals – his assist for Rashford’s goal being a superb lofted ball from deep, while his pass for James’ strike followed a lung-busting run upfield.

Speaking after the game, Solskjaer said of Pogba:

I think Paul can do many, many jobs. He can do the attacking midfield job. Today, he was more of the link player and when you’ve got Lindelof, Maguire and David at the back, they can feed Paul the ball.

Paul can do everything a midfielder can. Today, he was asked to play that sitting role and first half, I thought Chelsea pegged us too much back so he had to do loads of running.

That pass for the third goal was fantastic and the run for the fourth – I just wanted him to go all the way and open up his legs.

Lingard and Andreas Pereira (£5.0m) lined up on the right flank and in the hole of a 4-2-3-1 respectively, with Pereira providing the assist for Martial’s goal.

Most of the Fantasy discussion will surround Martial and Rashford, though.

It was, as predicted, the Frenchman who got the nod to lead the line, with Rashford stationed on the left flank.

Martial naturally gravitates to the left wing and Rashford tends to drift inside, however, and the two players are fairly interchangeable in the roles mentioned.

Martial was bang centre of goal when he bundled in Pereira’s cross from four yards but Rashford was the one making the dart in behind to capitalise on Pogba’s pass for United’s third goal.

While we have seen the two players frequently changing position in pre-season, Solskjaer’s post-match comments suggest the set-up at Chelsea is something he wants to stick with.

Talking of Rashford, Solskjaer said:

Marcus Rashford played that left-hand side striker role more or less to perfection more or less today.

Yes once in a while he’s caught out of possession defensively but that means we can counter-attack. His second goal was absolutely outstanding. That’s where we want him, running in behind. We don’t want him out on the touchline, crossing the ball.

On Martial’s tap-in, the Norwegian added:

That’s a number nine’s goal. Anthony knows what I expect from him and where I want him. I don’t mind if he drifts wide once in a while and tries a curler but that’s where the number nines get the goals.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire (both £5.5m) made their competitive United debuts and helped the Red Devils to a home clean sheet, which is already half of the number of shut-outs United kept at Old Trafford in 2018/19.

While there were some impressive individual contributions from both players over the course of the game, particularly Wan-Bissaka, to say United were rock-solid at the back would be stretching the truth.

Tammy Abraham (£7.0m) and Emerson Palmieri (£5.5m) both rattled the woodwork in the first half, while David de Gea (£5.5m) had to make a fine stop from Ross Barkley (£6.0m) and a half-dozen more routine saves from distance.

Chelsea were arguably the better team in the first half and it’ll be interesting to see how much joy United get against a less-obliging defence when they visit Molineux next Monday.

For owners of Leicester assets, Gameweek 2 is an appetite-whetting prospect based on Sunday’s evidence.

While Chelsea gave it a go going forward, they were repeatedly exposed at the back and Kurt Zouma (£5.0m) had a nightmare afternoon at centre-half alongside Andreas Christensen (£5.0m).

The Blues actually conceded fewer chances than United but the way they were sliced open in the second half will be of great encouragement to Vardy’s owners, given how easily Frank Lampard’s side were exposed on the counter-attack.

The imminent return to fitness of Antonio Rudiger (£6.0m) will be a boon, of course, while N’Golo Kante (£5.0m) got another substitute’s appearance under his belt following a knee injury and his inclusion in central midfield ought to further shore things up.

Lampard had benched Christian Pulisic (£7.5m) to make way for both Barkley and Mason Mount (£6.0m), with Barkley stationed on the left to allow Mount to play as a number ten.

The experiment didn’t really work out and it may be that the two £6.0m-rated assets are left tussling for one spot against the Foxes next weekend, although it is worth reiterating how much on top Chelsea were in the early stages.

Mount, interestingly, took all five of the Blues’ corners and completed the full 90 minutes as Barkley was hauled off before the hour-mark.

Asked about his tactical decision involving Mount and Barkley, Lampard said:

Christian Pulisic is 20 years old. He will be a fantastic player for the club. He has got great ability. You saw little moments with his acceleration on the ball.

But I have also got other options in midfield and in those areas, and I don’t want to stick Christian straight into the fire without trying to help him along the way. It was one of those games where I felt it was better to start with Ross and Mason, who have been very strong in pre-season, and bring Christian on.

Pedro (£7.0m) and Abraham were lively early on, meanwhile, but, like so many of their teammates, quickly wilted.

Reflecting on the game, Lampard said:

We were clearly the better team for 45, maybe 60 minutes, but what was evident was we made individual errors that led to four goals out of their five shots. There’s the harsh reality for us.

If we go in half-time 2-1 or 3-1 up, as we probably should have done, if we were more clinical ourselves and had maybe a stroke of luck here and there, the game would be completely different.

What I felt on the pitch and in the dressing room afterwards, and although the players are obviously disappointed, there were lots and lots of elements of the game I liked. There were four or five elements I really didn’t like and they proved fatal for us.

Solksjaer, meanwhile, said that Alexis Sanchez (£7.0m) is nearing a return.

Alexis came in very late, so he’s had now almost two weeks of training and a game behind closed doors against Blackburn. So he’s getting close to full fitness.

Newcastle United 0-1 Arsenal

  • Goals: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m)
  • Assists: Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£5.0m)

Not one of Arsenal’s new signings featured from the start as the Gunners narrowly beat Newcastle at St. James’ Park.

Dani Ceballos (£5.5m), Nicolas Pepe (£9.5m) and Gabriel Martinelli (£4.5m) were all thrown on as second-half substitutes while David Luiz (£6.0m) remained unused on the bench as Unai Emery kept faith with the players that had played the bulk of pre-season.

Alexandre Lacazette (£9.5m) didn’t make it onto the field, either, although his ankle injury had improved sufficiently for him to be among the substitutes.

With Mesut Ozil (£7.5m) and Sead Kolasinac (£5.5m) also not involved for personal reasons, the Gunners’ starting XI had something of a makeshift feel.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m), who played a chunk of pre-season on the right flank, led the line in Lacazette’s absence but there was the unfamiliar sight of teenagers Joe Willock (£5.0m) and Reiss Nelson (£5.5m) – plus Henrikh Mkhitaryan (£7.0m) – playing in the attacking midfield trio behind him.

As well as Nelson and Willock performed, there was an understandable lack of spark to Arsenal’s attack: indeed, only four Premier League clubs registered fewer shots on goal (eight) than the Gunners in Gameweek 1.

Aside from Aubameyang’s well-taken 57th-minute goal, Emery’s troops only had one other shot on target.

With the Gabonese forward in the side, of course, Arsenal always pose a threat.

Aubameyang looked to exploit Newcastle’s high defensive line in the first half but was afforded few opportunities, taking too heavy a touch with his first chance before stinging Martin Dubravka‘s (£5.0m) hands after a ball over the top from Mkhitaryan.

The Gabon international didn’t need to be asked a third time and coolly slotted past Dubravka following a cross from Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£5.0m).

Mkhitaryan had earlier blazed over and Granit Xhaka (£5.5m) flashed a header wide but the Gunners didn’t have one shot in the final half an hour, with Pepe and Ceballos unable to make much of an impression.

In truth, there was probably little to glean from Sunday’s victory and we will learn much more about Arsenal in the weeks to come as their new recruits begin to bed in and their absent first-teamers return.

When asked about the likes of Pepe and Luiz, Emery responded:

David Luiz did pre-season with another team and he is okay to play physically but he only trained completely with us yesterday. On Friday he did 30 minutes with us. I was thinking to give them confidence to work together because they were working well together, Sokratis and Chambers.

Nicolas Pepe came one week ago and physically he needs to get his best fitness to be ready to play 100 per cent for 90 minutes. I think that today 20 minutes is good for him.

And Ceballos is in the middle because he came before Pepe but he got an injury and he stopped training. But he needs to know the Premier League, so today was important for him and for us.

I also used Reiss Nelson and Willock because they deserved to be with us and to give them confidence can help us. It’s the same with Martinelli, he played the last 10 minutes because he deserved it.

On whether Ozil and Kolasinac would be ready to return against Burnley, Emery added:

The club is managing that circumstance. We want to be with them as soon as possible and with normality in training and normality to be ready to play. I don’t know now.

Arsenal at least kept a rare clean sheet on the road and have already matched their away shut-out count from last season.

Calum Chambers (£4.5m) had a decent match at centre-half although the Gunners still occasionally looked suspect against a limp Newcastle attack and stiffer tests await in the next three Gameweeks, so a truer gauge of Arsenal’s backline will be how they perform against Burnley, Liverpool and Spurs.

On the subject of Chambers and his absent defensive contingent, Emery said:

Really, last year for Calum Chambers was a very good year because he played all the matches with Fulham. They played him as centre-back in a three, in a two and they played him as a midfielder. From pre-season, he deserved to play today in the first XI and he was very focused and with Sokratis was also very serious.

I want to have very competitive players in each position. With David Luiz, with Holding when he is coming back to help us, with training regularly and playing with the under-23s because he will play again tomorrow.

And with Hector Bellerin, one month more. Today we also had Sead out and the injury to Kieran Tierney. I think we can and will want to become stronger defensively, but above all being one offensive team.

The Magpies battled gamely against their visitors, with Joelinton (£6.0m) going close with an early header before producing a tame shot when bulldozing his way through the Arsenal backline.

Jonjo Shelvey (£5.0m) also struck the upright but any attacking threat evaporated after the break, with an ‘out of position’ Miguel Almiron (£6.0m), playing up front alongside Joelinton in a 3-5-2, unable to break his duck for the hosts.

Goalscoring looks a concern for Newcastle this season but it should be said that Ayoze Perez (£6.5m) and Salomon Rondon failed to score in the first ten Gameweeks of 2018/19, when the Magpies faced a similarly tricky opening set of fixtures.

Shelvey and wing-back Matt Ritchie (£5.5m) shared dead-ball duties but an injury to the former saw Ritchie move infield early in the second half and Jetro Willems (£4.5m) introduced on the left flank.

It was during this positional reshuffle that Newcastle were caught out for Aubameyang’s winner, with Steve Bruce bemoaning after the game:

A lack of communication with him [Willems]. We wanted to play Matt Ritchie inside. He played there for two minutes until we got the information to him.

We were OK first half and unfortunately against a good team we’ve gifted them a goal, which is never easy to recover from. We left ourselves a bit exposed then but overall, I was pleased because there wasn’t anything in it. 

I can’t remember playing against Arsenal and the goalkeeper has had so little to do but unfortunately, we’ve made a mistake which has cost us.

On the subject of Shelvey’s injury, Bruce said:

Shelvey had a knock. We don’t think it’s too serious – we’ll see tomorrow but that’s why it [the substitution] happened.

Members Analysis

Newcastle United XI (3-5-2): Dubravka, Lascelles, Schar, Dummett, Manquillo, Hayden, S. Longstaff (Saint-Maximin 67′), Shelvey (Willems 54′), Ritchie, Almiron, Joelinton.

    Anything you'd immediately change? Trying not to jump in and start changing stuff if I can help it. I feel like I picked players for a reason and saving my transfer is the way to go in this first week, even if some of those United options are tempting.

    Pope, Button
    Robertson, Digne, Alexander-Arnold, Zouma, Kelly
    Salah, Sterling, Fraser, Perez, Dendoncker
    King, Jota, Wood

      Nope. Nice side. Zouma probably not a great option, but no rush to lose him given he can be benched

      Looks alright.

      Would save. And then probably aim to bring in some United players.

      Thanks guys, saving it is my current plan. Might have done Zouma to Wan-Bissaka if I had a spare 0.5 but I'll leave it for now.

    7. AndyCook

    10. Stacks of Mané
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      Unless there's an injury or clear indication of lack of playing time, saving a transfer/ keeping your squad is the way to go imo.I'm in the same boat as you. Good GW1 but not thrown off and keeping guys like Grealish and Trossard. Good luck next round, that's a nice team!

    11. POLSKA GOLA

    If you owned this team would you wildcard - or wait it out a bit to see if it turns?

    https://fantasy.premierleague.com/entry/48446/event/1

    Planned to get sterling gw3 (preseason) fraser out wilson out 5.5/5/4.5 in

    1. wulfranian
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      I would sell King.

    2. Olivier Bernards watch
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      difficult to say. you are missing the best two captaincy options in the game, and the allison injury takes up another transfer.i'd consider doing allison to adrian, then make a further downgrade the following week to fund a -4 to get one sterling or salah

      1. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        Yes, Allison to Adrian is a must. The problem with WC now is that you haven't enough info and if it fails, climbing up will be difficult. Bou may also do well now. But yes difficult situation.

        1. AndyCook
          • 2 Years
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          That excludes Salah though and eats up two transfers in a handful of weeks.. I’d get a different keeper

        2. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
          • 10 Years
          8 days, 11 hours ago

          I was thinking one of the 4.5 keepers maybe heaton/pope or should I go de gea/ederson/pickford ?

          Annoyingly I had Pickford for ages and change draft last few days preseason...

          1. AndyCook
            • 2 Years
            8 days, 11 hours ago

            Heaton has a nice run until week 10 and Pope a good pick too although less good next few. I’d probably try and release some funds and go for one of those as I’m sure you will be wanting another 11M+ player soon?

            1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
              • 10 Years
              8 days, 11 hours ago

              I think you are right Heaton might be the way to go.
              Villa looked impressive although they lost - plus the fella loves a save.
              It is the big challenge I have set myself for the rest of season - should be interesting
              I can't help wondering how many 'auto-picks' are ahead of me now! 😀

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Why wouldnt you cap Kane.. Surely thats the whole point of going with just 1 premium.

      1. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        TAA likely to get cs and/or attacking returns, so he is better option than Kane vs City.

      2. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
        • 10 Years
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        I was convinced TAA would outscore him - so I went with it

    4. PDM (Top 1000) ANY Season L…
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      I`d just sell Allison

    5. AndyCook
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      One of the issues is you have to bench two decent players each week, and with an expensive keeper your money is spread very thinly. I wouldn’t want to wildcard though because you probably don’t know exactly who you would want. Just make transfers slowly to regain ground

      1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
        • 10 Years
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        Well I planned to go chelsea this week now I am not sure.
        The bench will be easier gw3 when I see fraser - wilson for sterling /maybe a 4.5 not sure yet

        1. AndyCook
          • 2 Years
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          That might be the easy way to free money, downgrade an attacking player to 4.5 and go four at the back but you probably need another week of data. Get a starting keeper and if you want to keep Robertson and Alexander Arnold best make sure it’s not Adrian!

          1. AndyCook
            • 2 Years
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            Unless you are certain you don’t want Salah

            1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
              • 10 Years
              8 days, 11 hours ago

              I am bound to want him at some stage - so that is why I am not keen on the adrian route - it will mean another transfer along the line

              1. AndyCook
                • 2 Years
                8 days, 11 hours ago

                Yeah transfer to free up a Liverpool spot, transfer to get Adrian in, transfer to get him out, then possibly a fourth to go back to two Liverpool defenders..

              2. baps sniffer
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                8 days, 11 hours ago

                Yes, forget Adrian.

    6. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      I don't see any point waiting till 3 or 4 gw.
      You took the risk and you lost

    7. Davros
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      I would probably wildcard. Allison, salah, Sterling, bilva, plus other question marks over playing time let alone form. Yeah, fraid so

    8. Dthinger
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      I would not wildcard. It's not a well-conceived team in hindsight, but most of those players have good fixtures and you can still work towards getting Sterling without tearing the whole thing up. I would not go for Adrian since you don't know how many weeks you'll get out of him, but you obviously need a keeper so I suggest Fabianski.

      Then you can take a couple of hits to improve your midfield. Not necessarily saying you should do this, but with the extra mil from Fabianski, and by downgrading Wilson to Greenwood, you could afford to do Bilva to Sterling.

      Kane, Bilva&Allison to Salah, Pukki & 4.5 keeper for -8 maybe worst case but no WC

    Van Anholt has Kelly in his Fpl team. Do you think that might mean he is nailed for a little bit longer?

    1. Luke Chadwicks Left Peg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Dan James has himself in his squad despite knowing he won’t start all that often. Can’t read too much in to these things.

      If Mendy puts Mendy in his team though...

    2. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      He also has Zaha despite him not starting so wouldn't rely on it. Also it could just be a 1 week punt on him.

      1. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 days, 13 hours ago

        Yeah with Zaha a little bit different because with not that big understanding of the game he probably picked him in a long term perspective.
        Not a good idea to base decisions on his team but nevertheless a food for thought.

      Maybe he just had 4m left and realised how wrong it would be to chose Grant Hanley.?

      Anyway gents, let talk about Trossard

      1. Luke Chadwicks Left Peg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        As a Brighton sceptic I’m curious to know about this Trossard. Where’s the pre season bandwagon come from?

      2. Guilty Sigurðsson ♛
        • 2 Years
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        I'm personally keeping him for the next two, then probably never owning him again. Based off the managers comments (and pure guesswork) I think he will start home games.

        It's annoying that Brighton's attack is looking like a rotation fest. I think Maupay would be a brilliant option at 6.0, but will he nail down a spot? Who knows.

        1. Luke Chadwicks Left Peg
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          8 days, 11 hours ago

          6m is such a tough price point, especially with Brighton having the only decent fixtures to go with the relevant players.

          As a positive, I’m sure one of Adams, Wesley, Joelinton etc. will present themselves as viable candidates over the coming weeks

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Think the price change sites need to work out the new algorithm- not clear cut at the beginning of the season

      Ederson and sterling were well over 100% last night and no move

      1. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        Yes, fpl towers have probably changed the algorithm, but Sterling will rise 😉

    3. noquarternt
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      Takes a while for the websites to work it out and even then they’re never 100%...they’re pretty good at it though.

  9. The_Bucc
    8 days, 12 hours ago

    I'm playing 4-4-2 so far this season, with a defence of:

    VVD - TAA - Digne - Vertonghen (Rico)

    Does Vertonghen to AWB make the most sense this week given that he looks out of favour all of a sudden?
    Would like Coleman but not sure an Everton double up be the wisest.
    I also think Zinchenko and Stones are on borrowed time.

    Thoughts?

    1. PDM (Top 1000) ANY Season L…
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      I you are doing Vert >>> Someone
      I`d opt for AWB over Coleman

    2. noquarternt
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      If you think Man U will keep clean sheets, go for him. Maguire might have threat from set pieces?

      Do we know why Vert missed out?

        1. POLSKA GOLA

          *Vert owners

    3. POLSKA GOLA
      • 5 Years

      I personally prefer Boly but AWB has high ownership so it’s a wise move to protect from drop if United defence do well

          Why not go Ederson? I actually think Kepa could be a decent pick, should Chelsea look better against Liverpool mid week obviously

        No way. He is in so many teams, only because of no info about Burnley keeper situation (and perhaps Henderson loan deal) during pre-season.

        1. baps sniffer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Well, perhaps the fact that his sub is only 4.0 has also something to do with it.

    1. jia you jia you

      Very tempted by:
      King + Fraser to Rashford + 5.5
      Can do it for free next GW but price changes would screw it up!

      1. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        McGinn, but I fear he likes yellow colour too much.

    2. Eriksen Maestro

    Will Son go back into that Spurs squad for GW3? He could destroy Newcastle.

    1. Guilty Sigurðsson ♛
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      Hope so, he's probably my favourite player to own in the game. Always has relatively low ownership and can score massive hauls. The perfect combo.

      1. PDM (Top 1000) ANY Season L…
        • 10 Years
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        I don`t think he`ll have usual low ownership this season once GW3 kicks in.

        1. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          8 days, 11 hours ago

          I think he'll start with low ownership as casuals either won't realise that he is back or those who do will be unlikely to bring in a 9.5m player with 0 score right away.

          1. Slouch87
            • 3 Years
            8 days, 11 hours ago

            This notion that "casuals" won't realise he's back is ridiculous. His imminent return will be widely reported .

    2. baps sniffer

        I just don’t think he has much to his game at all, no variation, one trick that’s not really a trick.
        Not convinced by his desire as well.

        Can’t see him keeping the gig of leading the line at a big premier club like United .

        Been there a while now and not produced .

      I ditched Fraser, but it was for Sterling. My gamble failed, even though it looked fine after first half.

        Haha, I just love early moves if I feel theyre warranted. I will want rid of them next week regardless but taking a hit seems a bit silly.

      I'm in the same position with the same players, either fraser/king to mcginn/rash or just fraser to martial, don't want to get priced out but don't want to chase points either

      undecided atm

        Dont blame you, its a tough one, doubt Wolves will be anyway easy though! I have Martial already so prob easier for me to save. Double BOU attack feels an error now for sure though as they might get very little at Villa and then zilch in GW3.

    What are the minimum amount of points you look for in a triple captain and bench boost?

    1. Annie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      10 and 15

    2. BattleOfDeBruyne
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      Yeah around 10/15 but I usually wait for double gameweeks so in that event 15/20.

    3. Twenty Twenty Vision
      • 1 Year

      20

      - If you owned Sanchez 25x3 and Aguero 26 in that gameweek a few seasons back then under 20 points is disappointing. It’s a benchmark.

        I actually used my bench boost by mistake, didn’t even notice I had done until Saturday, got me 17 points though

    I want to transfer Lucas Moura out, but I don't know if I should get in Martial or say Pulisic/Maddison/Lanzini or someone else.
    Moura has toughest possible fixture, and after that Son comes back, Lo Celso will get his chance, and I thing he'll not be safe pick anymore.
    Martial could be the one to go, but I already have Rashford and AWB, and I'm just a little bit scared of having triple Man U so early in the season, after all, Wolwes are gonna be tough opposition for them.
    Pulisic - 70 milion man should start in front of home fans, and Chelsea will be desperate to show they are not rubbish and that 4-0 loss to Man U was just a bad day at the office. I expet them giving all they have to beat Leicester.
    What do you think? I'm open for debate.

      I read some pretty negative reports on Lanzinis performance...looking at him myself .
      Everton mids if you have .5 spare or as you say take a punt on a Chelsea mid. Both have great fixtures- they are still very much a punt though and even if they pick up you could find yourself on the wrong one though.

      1. DIMITRIS
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        Lanzini could shine against lesser opponents, Man City is as tough as it gets, and I don't think anyone should be judged after the game with them. Last season Townsend scored a wonder goal against them, and at the end of the day, no one relevant owned him nor did anyone suddenly change his mind to get him. That's why he's on my watchlist, also he can spare me .5 which could be handy in the upcoming weeks.

        I don't have Everton mid, and I can't get one without taking a hit, so sadly I can't afford them.

        And Chelsea assets, yes they are a risk, and I could easily pick the wrong one, but I'll take them over Moura against City at Etihad.
        Also in GW3 I'll probably have to take a hit to transfer out Fraser and Wilson for Man City game, so, this week's transfer is really an important one to nail on.

        Cheers

      I think you need more info. Especially who to replace Moura with
      Which means.. save FT

      1. DIMITRIS
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        That could be the right thing to do, but if Martial/Pulisic/Maddison/Laznini get's it going, I know I'll be super pissed.

    3. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years

      Martial is the only one worth doing it for at this point I'd say, and that's more to do with an impending price rise (and decent GW3 fixture) - I'd definitely hold otherwise

      1. DIMITRIS
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        Perhaps he is the only one worth it, especially with eventual price rise .

    Good post for this weeks burning man question

    Start Perez away against Chelsea

    Or

    Old man Lundstram home against Palace

    Both have their merits

    1. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Lundstram vs Palace.

    Hi mates.

    For GW2, would you start Perez or Lundstram?

    Perez, right?

    Cheers

    1. DIMITRIS
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      Perez, because he might snatch an assist or even goal if he's lucky, while Lunstram doesn't have as nerar potential for points as Perez. Cheers

      Why do you have Kodjia?

      1. SADIO SANÉ

        probably thought he'd play, guessing the Villa line-up isn't easy

        1. wulfranian
          • 2 Years

          this.I am thinking to sell him.

    2. Stacks of Mané
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      I like it! Keep the double Brighton. I predict a great season for the Seagulls.
      Lots of options here. Upgrading Coleman to Digne would be nice but don't know if it's worth a transfer.
      I'd even consider downgrading Kodija to Greenwood but don't know if you need the cash.

      Nice team overall

    Any idea what to do with Trossard?

    A. Trossard - > Mcginn

    B. Trossard - > Robinson

    C. Save

    1. Gnu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 11 hours ago

      Depends on your bench but I'd be inclined to
      C) save.

      1. Viper
        • 9 Years
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        I'd be starting Tielemans & benching Trossard
