Transfers

How each Premier League club did in the summer transfer window

The Premier League summer spending came in at a hefty £1.4 billion, but how many of the 99 new permanent signings will cut the Fantasy mustard?

We’ve taken a look at each club’s transfer window to single out a few assets worth your Fantasy time.

Arsenal

INS

Nicolas Pépé (MID £9.5m) Winger signed for a club-record £72m from Lille. Scored 23 goals and provided 12 assists in 41 games of a highly impressive season.

Kieran Tierney (DEF £5.5m) Celtic’s Scottish international left-back cost the Gunners £25m, but is currently sidelined with a groin injury. Managed five assists from 20 league appearances last term.

David Luiz (DEF £6.0m) One of the deadline day’s more eye-opening deals, the Chelsea centre-half moved across London for £8m. Highly experienced, if not always the most dependable at the back.

Dani Ceballos (MID £5.5m) Spanish U21 midfielder signed on loan from Real Madrid. Used sparingly in La Liga last season, scoring three times.

OUTS

Alex Iwobi (MID £6.0m) – see Everton

Danny Welbeck (FWD £6.0m) – see Watford

VERDICT

A good transfer window for the Gunners and Pépé has the potential to form a devastating partnership with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) and Alexandre Lacazette (£9.5m) up front. Defensive shortcomings remain, despite the fresh faces, with Luiz so much better on the ball than off it and Tierney a work in progress.

Aston Villa

INS

Tom Heaton (GK £4.5m) An £8m capture from Burnley, Heaton is a proven Premier League performer – he pulled off 142 saves in 2016/17 – hampered by injury in recent years.

Tyrone Mings (DEF £4.5m) On loan from Bournemouth for the second half of last season, the centre-half’s permanent move to Villa could cost up to £25m.

Matt Targett (DEF £4.5m) Left-back signed from Southampton for £11m. Limited to only 16 appearances for the Saints last season, he still managed a goal and three assists.

Kortney Hause (DEF £4.5m) Another loan to permanent deal (from Wolves), Hause made only 14 appearances last term, but did feature in Villa’s play-offs run.

Bjorn Engels (DEF £4.5m) A £9m capture from Reims, the Belgian centre-half has Champions League experience with Olympiacos and was a regular in Ligue 1 last season, scoring one goal and setting up another across 33 appearances.

Ezri Konsa (DEF £4.5m) The England U21 defender, who cost Villa £12m to prise him away from Brentford, is very much in the ‘one for the future’ bracket.

Anwar El Ghazi (MID £5.5m) Six goals in 36 appearances, including the opener in the play-off final against Derby, capped a successful loan spell from Lille last season. He also chipped in with six assists from the flanks.

Jota (MID £6.0m) The West Midlands’ other Jota is Spanish and a former Birmingham City winger who worked under Villa boss Dean Smith at Brentford. Jota scored three goals and set up a further nine in 40 Championship appearances last term.

Douglas Luiz (MID £4.5m) A £15m buy from Manchester City, where he never made a first-team appearance, the defensively-minded Brazilian offers limited attacking threat.

Trezeguet (MID £5.5m) Another pacey winger for Dean Smith’s stable, the Egypt international impressed for Turkish outfit Kasimpasa last term, with nine goals and ten assists.

Marvelous Nakamba (MID £4.5m) An £11m capture from Club Brugges. As owners of Isaac Success (£5.0m) will confirm, a great name will only get you so far. And as a defensive midfielder with only four career goals to his name, that’s not very far at all in Fantasy terms.

Wesley (FWD £6.0m) The £22m signing from Club Brugge managed 17 goals and ten assists last term and should be Villa’s main man up front if he can adapt to the Premier League quickly enough.

VERDICT

Busy is an understatement when it comes to Villa’s summer dealings. Dean Smith has vowed that his side won’t ‘do a Fulham’ after buying up an entire new XI, and a number of the fresh men do at least have experience either in England or at Villa. Key Fantasy assets are likely to be El Ghazi, Wesley – should he find the Premier League to his liking – and the save point magnet that is Heaton.

AFC Bournemouth

INS

Jack Stacey (DEF £4.5m) A £4m signing from Luton, Stacey offers versatility in defence and an eye for goal – he hit four in 45 games for the Hatters last year.

Lloyd Kelly (DEF £4.5m) Another young player who can operate across the back four, the left-back cost the Cherries £13m from Bristol City. He is, however, currently out with an ankle injury

Philip Billing (MID £5.0m) £15m has got Eddie Howe an athletic central midfielder, but his muted attacking output while at Huddersfield (two goals and no assists across two seasons) confirms his limited Fantasy potential.

Arnaut Danjuma (MID £6.0m) The winger cost Bournemouth £13.7m from Club Brugge, with the Dutch international providing six goals and four assists in all competitions last season.

Harry Wilson (MID £6.0m) A loan signing from Liverpool, the 22-year-old winger will do well to hold down a regular first-team place, with stiff competition coming from the likes of Ryan Fraser (£7.5m) and new boy Danjuma.

OUTS

Tyrone Mings (DEF £4.5m) – see Aston Villa.

Lys Mousset (FWD £5.0m) – see Sheffield United.

VERDICT

A fairly understated transfer window for Bournemouth, with new blood at the back perhaps offering more potential than immediate Fantasy gains.

Key assets are more likely to be found further up the pitch. Danjuma and Wilson look like good fits for Eddie Howe’s progressive philosophy – if they can secure sufficient pitch-time.

Brighton and Hove Albion

INS

Aaron Mooy (MID £5.0m) A season-long loan from Huddersfield looks like canny business done by new Brighton boss Graham Potter. In an otherwise workmanlike Terriers side, Mooy offered a spark of creativity – and seven goals and four assists across two top-flight campaigns.

Leandro Trossard (MID £6.0m) The £15m arrival from Genk caught the eye in pre-season as part of a fluid front three for the Seagulls. He had a stand-out 2018/19, scoring 22 goals and producing 11 assists in 47 appearances, but was on the bench in Gameweek 1.

Adam Webster (DEF £4.5m) A club-record £20m signing from Bristol City, Webster can play both centre-half and right-back – a key attribute given Potter’s liking for changes in both personnel and formation.

Neil Maupay (FWD £6.0m) Fantasy veteran Glenn Murray (£6.0m) might well have to settle for the bench this season if the £20m signing from Brentford hits the ground running. Maupay is a strong, mobile striker who has scored 41 goals over the last two Championship seasons and already has his first Premier League goal.

VERDICT

Brighton will be as much about their manager as their players this season. If Graham Potter’s attack-minded philosophy proves more fruitful than Chris Hughton’s defensive set-up, then the Seagulls could fly.

If so, Trossard and Maupay look like Fantasy bargains. But it remains, for now, a big if, as Watford were exceptionally poor in Gameweek 1.

Burnley

INS

Jay Rodriguez (FWD £6.0m) The £10m capture from West Brom has major Fantasy pedigree – 15 goals and three assists in a breakout 2013/14 season at Southampton. He showed flashes of that form for the Baggies two seasons ago, but will have to oust more dependable forward options if he is to flourish at Turf Moor.

Danny Drinkwater (MID £4.5m) A loan signing from Chelsea, Drinkwater has never been the greatest of Fantasy draws, with his finest hour (and three goals and eight assists) back in the heady days of Leicester’s title-winning season.

Bailey Peacock-Farrell (GK £4.5m) We can probably file this £2.5m signing from Leeds under the back-up category at Burnley.

OUTS

Tom Heaton (GK £4.5m) – see Aston Villa

VERDICT

The quietest of windows for Burnley, although Rodriguez could become a major asset if he stays injury-free and the Clarets can avoid a repeat of last year’s deeply underwhelming campaign.

Chelsea

INS

Mateo Kovacic (MID £5.5m) As befits a team currently dealing with a transfer ban, the £40m conversion of the Real Madrid midfielder’s loan to a permanent deal has been the only piece of paper in Frank Lampard’s in-tray. The deep-lying Croatia international, however, offers little in Fantasy terms.

OUTS

David Luiz (DEF £6.0m) – see Arsenal

Danny Drinkwater (MID £4.5m) – see Burnley

VERDICT

Move on, nothing to see here. The key questions surrounding Chelsea revolve around who of the existing squad will make the cut under Lampard.

Crystal Palace

INS

James McCarthy (MID £4.5m) McCarthy’s move from Everton to Palace is unlikely to excite much more than the fact that his name is so very similar to James McArthur’s (£5.5m).

Jordan Ayew (FWD £5.0m) A decent enough loan spell (a goal and three assists) from Swansea has led to a permanent move to Selhurst Park, although his Fantasy appeal remains decidedly dim.

Gary Cahill (DEF £4.5m) The veteran centre-half, released by Chelsea, joined Palace on a free transfer. The Eagles kept 12 clean sheets last season and Cahill could offer decent value if he gets the minutes.

Victor Camarasa (MID £5.0m) A canny loan signing from Real Betis, via Cardiff City. Camarasa added a rare touch of flair at Neil Warnock’s Cardiff, scoring five goals and setting up another four.

OUTS

Aaron Wan Bissaka (DEF £5.5m) – see Manchester United

VERDICT

Arguably the highlight of Palace’s transfer window was not those who came in, but the one who didn’t leave. With Wilfried Zaha (£7.0m) still at Selhurst Park, until Christmas at the very least, Roy Hodgson’s side retain a chunk of excitement. Cahill could prove a worthy defensive acquisition – and he scored six goals the last time he was considered a guaranteed starter.

Everton

INS

Andre Gomes (MID £5.5m) A successful loan spell from Barcelona became a £22m summer signing. Gomes is the glue that holds the midfield together, but he is rather less important in Fantasy terms, as a goal and two assists last season attests.

Fabian Delph (DEF £5.5m) Around £9m was spent to bring Delph from Manchester City, with manager Marco Silva talking up his midfield credentials. The possibility of out of position returns faintly raises his attraction on the Fantasy chart, but he is pricey and, currently, injured.

Moise Kean (FWD £7.0m) A fee in the region of £27m secured the services of the teenaged Italian striker. Kean scored six goals in 13 Serie A appearances for Juventus last term. Only time will tell if that is good, or risky, business.

Alex Iwobi (MID £6.0m) The talented, if inconsistent, midfielder moved to Everton for £35m after four seasons at the Gunners. Unless he impresses from the get-go, he will be seen as the poor man’s Wilfried Zaha by many a disgruntled Toffee fan.

Jean-Philippe Gbamin (MID £5.0m) A defensive midfielder signed from Mainz, the Ivory Coast international is seen as a direct replacement for Idrissa Gueye. That, and his ability to drop back into central defence, stifles his Fantasy allure. Furthermore, his introduction against Palace jarred the side a little.

Djibril Sidibe (DEF £5.5m) A France international right-back signed on loan from Monaco. Sidibe managed three assists in 26 Ligue 1 appearances last season and will duke it out with Seamus Coleman (£5.5m) for the starting spot at full-back.

Jonas Lossl (GK £4.5m) A free transfer for the former Huddersfield Town stopper. Lossl racked up some good returns, and saved three penalties, across two seasons for the Terriers, but he is unlikely to get the minutes unless Jordan Pickford (£5.5m) implodes.

OUTS

James McCarthy (MID £4.5m) – see Crystal Palace

Muhamed Besic (MID £4.5m) – see Sheffield United

VERDICT

Some solid squad building by Silva, but not too many exciting Fantasy options at first glance.

Kean could be a steal at £7.0m if his explosive potential tallies with some form, although Goodison Park has been a graveyard for strikers in recent seasons.

Elsewhere, Iwobi looks (fittingly) more Theo Walcott (£6.5m) than Wilfried Zaha, while Sidibe has his work cut out to eclipse Coleman’s Fantasy pedigree.

Leicester City

INS

Ayoze Perez (MID £6.5m) A whopping 17.4 per cent of Fantasy managers have been attracted by the £30m signing from Newcastle. He finished last season strongly, scoring 12 times and notching two assists, and the possibility of out-of-position returns is proving hard to resist for many. Was not particularly in the game against Wolves in Gameweek 1

Youri Tielemans (MID £6.5m) If not Perez, then Tielemans… An impressive half-season loanee from Monaco, involving three goals and five assists, became a £35m move over the summer. Brendan Rodgers’ side is widely tipped to flourish this season and Tielemans could be key to that.

Dennis Praet (MID £5.5m) An £18m arrival from Sampdoria, central midfielder Praet managed two goals and three assists in 34 Serie A appearances last season.

James Justin (DEF £5.0m) The 21-year-old right-back was in the League One team of the year at Luton. His potential is undeniable, but replacing Ricardo Pereira (£6.0m) at full-back looks a way off for now.

OUTS

Harry Maguire (DEF £5.5m) – see Manchester United

VERDICT

Optimism abounds at Leicester, with Rodgers’ canny acquisitions fuelling the feel good factor. Both Tielemans and Perez are well-known and well-liked and at least one of them could well live up to the hype this season.

Liverpool

INS

Adrian (GK £4.5m) A free transfer from West Ham United, Adrian might be in for an early run in the side following Friday night’s injury to Alisson (£6.0m). A bargain if playing, just another back-up when not.

VERDICT

Not much is broken at Liverpool, so Jurgen Klopp has felt no need to fix it.

Manchester City

INS

Rodri (MID £5.5m) A £62.5m buy from Atletico Madrid, Rodri is seen as the long-term successor to Fernandinho (£5.5m) as City’s holding midfielder. That statement alone should deter all but the most contrary of Fantasy managers.

Angelino (DEF £5.0m) The Spanish defender cost just over £5 million as a buy-back from PSV Eindhoven, where he spent a season having left the Etihad. Potentially behind both Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.5m) and Benjamin Mendy (£6.0m) in the left-back pecking order.

Joao Cancelo (DEF £5.5m) Part of the deal with Juventus that saw Danilo heading off to Italy. Cancelo will offer serious competition to Kyle Walker (£6.0m) at right-back. Both are attack-minded with defensive shortcomings. Factor in Pep’s rotation roulette and consistent Fantasy returns could be elusive.

OUTS

Patrick Roberts (MID £5.5m) – see Norwich City

Douglas Luiz (MID £4.5m) – see Aston Villa

Fabian Delph (DEF £5.5m) – see Everton

VERDICT

Decent cover at full-back was clearly Pep Guardiola’s main concern over the summer, and he has definitely delivered that. Such solid squad management – and the acquisition of Rodri as a holding midfielder – works for Pep, but creates little Fantasy interest in the newcomers.

Manchester United

INS

Harry Maguire (DEF £5.5m) One of the summer’s more tedious transfer sagas, the England centre-half joined from Leicester for an eye-watering £80m. Even allowing for injuries and the desultory nature of Claude Puel’s regime, Maguire still managed a personal best three goals last term. Helped United to a clean sheet on opening weekend.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (DEF £5.5m) The exciting young right-back cost £45m from Crystal Palace to replace the not at all exciting Young right-back. He produced three assists and 18 bonus points during last year’s breakthrough campaign and must now prove that was no fluke. He already has one clean sheet and two bonus to his name already.

Daniel James (MID £6.0m) Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first summer signing, the Swansea City youngster cost £15m. The decidedly pacey left-winger had an excellent 2018/19, scoring four times and providing nine assists in 33 Championship games. He hit the ground running in Gameweek 1, netting off the bench on his Manchester United debut.

VERDICT

Everybody, it would seem, hates Ed Woodward and his transfer ‘policy’. But it’s been a half-decent summer for United, with all three new boys offering the prospect of Fantasy fruit.

Maguire should provide central stability and always delivers goals at some point, while Wan-Bissaka is a bonus point magnet.

Both are already well owned, leaving James as the Fantasy punt in Solskjaer’s first full season at the helm.

Newcastle United

INS

Emil Krafth (DEF £4.5m) A £5m buy from Amiens. Krafth is a Sweden international seen as a direct competitor to the currently injured DeAndre Yedlin (£4.5m) for the right-back slot. Five goals and 13 assists over a 204-game career point to a defender with a certain amount of attacking threat.

Joelinton (FWD £6.0m) An impressive (and club record) £40m was spent on securing the services of the Hoffenheim striker. He produced eleven goals and nine assists from 35 appearances in all competitions last year.

Jetro Willems (DEF £4.5m) The Holland international left-back signed on loan from Frankfurt. Experienced he may be, but a measly two assists and no goals from 36 appearances last season do not mark him out as a Fantasy must-have.

Allan Saint-Maximin (MID £5.5m) The winger from Nice signed a six-year deal that could end up costing Newcastle £20m. He comes with a decent tally of six goals and five assists in 34 Ligue 1 appearances last time out.

Andy Carroll (FWD £5.5m) The big man, back home, on a free after years of injuries elsewhere. Carroll’s ability has never been in doubt, nor his unerring knack of breaking down at the drop of a hat. Unless Joelinton crashes and burns, he’s likely to be bench fodder at Newcastle, and not even that for all but the most adventurous of Fantasy managers.

OUTS

Ayoze Perez (MID £6.5m) – see Leicester City

VERDICT

The announcement of Steve Bruce as head coach did little to raise the excitement levels at Newcastle and the team, as a Fantasy prospect, offers little for now.

Joelinton, as a strong striker with an impressive work rate, could become a fan favourite. But as a Fantasy favourite and the new Salomon Rondon? Time will tell.

Norwich City

INS

Josip Drmic (FWD £5.5m) A free transfer from Borussia Monchengladbach. Two years of injuries and a bit-part 2018/19 (five games, two goals) hardly speak volumes as to his quality, although his overall Bundesliga record of 31 goals and seven assists in 107 appearances suggests a certain pedigree. Likely, however, to be an understudy for Teemu Pukki (£6.5m).

Patrick Roberts (MID £5.5m) Season-long loanee from Manchester City. Former England youth international winger Roberts has spent almost his entire City career out on loan.

Sam Byram (DEF £4.5m) The right-back joined from West Ham United for £750,000. Byram was a bright young thing when he joined the Hammers from Leeds, but he never really kicked on and made just 26 appearances over a disjointed three years.

Ralf Fahrmann (GK £4.5m) Loan signing from Schalke, where he accumulated 196 Bundesliga appearances across 14 years. Back-up for Tim Krul (£4.5m), although few from Norwich’s defence will attract much Fantasy interest based on Friday night’s performance at Anfield.

VERDICT

Head coach Daniel Farke has essentially kept faith with last season’s title-winning squad, and his few summer signings aren’t exactly screaming for Fantasy attention.

Drmic, if he can stay injury-free, could prosper in what is an attack-minded team, but only if he is included as well as, rather than as a replacement for, Pukki.

Sheffield United

INS

Lys Mousset (FWD £5.0m) Striker signed from Bournemouth for £10m. Five goals in 71 appearances for the Cherries is less than inspiring, although most of those came as a substitute.

Oliver McBurnie (FWD £6.0m) Club-record £17m signing from Swansea City. McBurnie scored 22 times and provided four assists in a profitable Championship campaign last season. His Premier League record is one of limited minutes and, to date, no goals.

Ben Osborn (MID £5.0m) Versatile midfielder/left-back joined from Nottingham Forest. Versatility, alas, can be a bit of a dirty word in Fantasy, with out-of-position midfielders playing in defence being deeply unattractive.

Ravel Morrison (MID £5.0m) The once bright young thing at Manchester United signed on a free from Swedish outfit Ostersund. Morrison’s long career of under-achievement – just 139 appearances since 2011/12 – suggests Blades boss Chris Wilder’s reputation for getting the most out of a player will be seriously tested.

Callum Robinson (MID £5.5m) Signed from Preston North End, the midfielder was his side’s top scorer last season, with 13, despite missing a large chunk of the campaign through injury. His career stats – 61 goals and 28 assists in 214 appearances – are equally impressive, as his deployment as a centre-forward for the Blades.

Muhamed Besic (MID £4.5m) Season-long loanee from Everton. Besic has consistently struggled to make an impact at Goodison Park, not helped by a number of injuries.

Phil Jagielka (DEF £4.5m) Free transfer from Everton. Someone who definitely did make an impact at Goodison, veteran Jagielka brings vast experience of Premier League football with him on his return to Bramall Lane. Whether he has the physical ability to play regularly remains to be seen.

VERDICT

The temptation to brand the Blades as ‘the new Stoke’ should be avoided, despite the potential for Bramall Lane to be a very unwelcome place to visit. Chris Wilder has forged a progressive, patient and possession-based side that creates good chances, if not a great deal of them. New signings who could prosper and emerge as Fantasy assets could be limited to the prolific Robinson and the in-form McBurnie, but only if the team as a whole can step up to the new level demanded of them.

Southampton

INS

Che Adams (FWD £6.0m) A £15m capture from Birmingham City. Adams prospered in a struggling Birmingham side last year, scoring 22 goals and setting up another five. Mobile and industrious, he seems to have settled quickly into a front three under coach Ralf Hasenhuttl, although blanked in his Gameweek 1 outing.

Danny Ings (FWD £6.0m) Liverpool loan signing made permanent for £20 million. Seven goals in 24 appearances for the Saints last season was enough to persuade the club to sign him permanently. Injuries remain the main threat to consistent returns.

Moussa Djenepo (MID £5.5m) A £15m buy from Belgian outfit Standard Liege. Djenepo is a fast winger with a decent goalscoring record – he scored 11 and added six assists in 39 games last season.

OUTS

Matt Targett (DEF £4.5m) – see Aston Villa

VERDICT

Southampton were much-improved under Hasenhuttl last season, but kicking on is an altogether different prospect. All three signings have Fantasy potential, with Ings’ quality and experience complemented by his likely spot-kick duties.

The Saints’ first eight fixtures are not the easiest, however, giving Fantasy managers plenty of time to assess their new arrivals.

Tottenham Hotspur

INS

Giovani Lo Celso (MID £7.5m) Attacking midfielder on a season-long loan from Real Betis. The Argentina international thrived in La Liga last season, scoring 16 times and producing six assists in 45 domestic and European appearances. A good passer and finisher, he is seen by many as the perfect replacement for Christian Eriksen (£9.0m).

Tanguy Ndombele (MID £6.0m) All-action midfielder signed for a club-record £56m from Lyon. The 22-year-old seems to have it all – pace, power, passing and the technique to beat a player or two. Perhaps the only thing he lacks is consistent goal threat, with just three strikes (and eight assists) from 49 games last campaign. That said, he lit up Spurs’ new stadium with an incredible goal from range against Aston Villa on Saturday.

Ryan Sessegnon (MID £5.5m) Starlet signed from Fulham for £30m. Sessegnon has been a transfer waiting to happen for a while now, but his undoubted talent might not play out in Fantasy terms. Should Spurs elect to use him as a left-back, his FPL designation as a midfielder should cripple his Fantasy attraction.

VERDICT

The world and its significant other agree that Spurs have had a brilliant transfer window, although previous inactivity meant that was never going to be a difficult conclusion to reach. The Fantasy impact of their three top-class new arrivals is much harder to call. Lo Celso could be a big hit, but being ‘the new Eriksen’ will be tricky if the old one is still there. Wait and see looks to be the wisest course of action for now.

Watford

INS

Danny Welbeck (FWD £6.0m) – Snapped up on a free transfer after being deemed surplus to requirements at the Emirates. The striker has always been intelligent and hard-working, but also wasteful and injury-prone. He might struggle to keep the likes of Gerard Deulofeu (£6.5m) and Troy Deeney (£6.5m) out of the team on merit alone.

Ismaila Sarr (MID £6.5m) A £40m buy from Rennes, the winger enjoyed a productive 2018/19, scoring 13 goals and providing 11 assists in 50 games. Could prosper if Deulofeu remains in a more advanced role.

Craig Dawson (DEF £5.0m) Experienced West Brom defender snapped up for £5.5m. Dawson has been a firm Fantasy favourite over the years, boosting his defensive output with consistent attacking returns. He scored ten goals over his last three top-flight seasons.

VERDICT

A fairly muted transfer window for coach Javi Gracia, which should prompt an equally studied reaction from Fantasy managers. Sarr has the dynamism to excel, but might need time to bed in. Dawson is a proven Premier League performer, but only time will tell if he gets the consistent starts needed to warrant investment.

West Ham United

INS

Albian Ajeti (FWD £6.0m) Striker bought from Basel on a four-year deal for just £8m. Switzerland international Ajeti scored 15 goals in 35 appearances last season and hit 43 goals and 21 assists in 96 games at Basel. A rising star in Switzerland, likely to be an understudy at the Hammers.

Roberto (GK £4.5m) Free transfer from Espanyol. Experienced keeper with 300+ appearances in various European leagues, Roberto will be Lukasz Fabianski’s (£4.5m) back-up.

Pablo Fornals (MID £6.5m) Young, but experienced, midfielder signed from Villareal for £24m. Capped by Spain at 20 and with 150 La Liga games at 23, the attacking midfielder is a curious mix of the prodigal and the seasoned. He has scored 16 times and provided 22 assists in 159 club games.

Sebastien Haller (FWD £7.5m) Prolific striker signed from Eintracht Frankfurt for £45m. Frenchman Haller was highly productive in Germany last season, hitting 20 goals and providing 12 assists in 41 appearances.

OUTS

Andy Carroll (FWD £5.5m) – see Newcastle United

Adrian (GK £4.5m) – see Liverpool

VERDICT

A lack of consistently threatening attacking options clearly vexed coach Manuel Pellegrini last season, and his summer signings reflect that. Fornals has some serious pedigree, but competition for the more advanced midfield roles is likely to be intense.

Haller has less to fight off up front and could be a fine mid-price option if he can bring his Bundesliga form to England.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

INS

Jesus Vallejo (DEF £5.0m) Real Madrid centre-back signed on season-long loan. Spain’s under 21 captain, Vallejo has made just 19 appearances for Real since signing in 2015. Injuries restricted him to just seven matches last year.

Patrick Cutrone (FWD £6.0m) Striker bought from AC Milan for £23 million. Cutrone, a firm fan favourite in Milan, came through the club’s youth ranks, scoring 27 goals in 90 games. The 21-year-old faces a stiff test to oust the likes of Raul Jimenez (£7.5m) and Diogo Jota (£6.5m) from Wolves’ starting XI.

VERDICT

Wolves’ major summer business involved making last year’s loan deals for Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker (£4.5m) permanent. Those deals represent a successful window by themselves, with the truly new arrivals unlikely to have nearly such a major impact, particularly in Fantasy terms.

    Hi everyone, a couple of questions:

    a) Have the features where a player's ITB and Transfers Made statuses gone completely from the game now?

    b) What do you reckon about Charlie Taylor's prospects for the season ahead? It was bit of surprise to see him out of the team for Pieters at the weekend?

    1. Hansel

      a) looks like it

      b) unsure, but Pieter's did put in two assists so I guess he didn't worsen his case

              Yeah I think Haller is your best shot at a differential, it is risky though. At the very least you're in a position to do it, as you've got Salah/Sterling covered, and captaincy between the two of them is split, so if one does good and the other doesn't then that'll actually probably benefit you, as long as Haller does decent.

                Captaincy between them isn't split. Have you looked at the poll?

                    Links me the poll article and doesn't look at the poll results. 😆

                        I know the poll results. It's not a matter of poll results, saying that the decision is split is a reference to people who can ACTUALLY choose between either Salah or Sterling.

                        You realize more people own Salah, right?

                        1. COK3Y5MURF

                          Yeah, I can choose between Salah and Sterling. What's your point?

                          He should be captaining whoever he thinks will score the most points in his team. We're all aware that you can't win FPL without differentials, but you shouldn't pick differentials FOR THE SAKE of picking them either. If you're able to identify a differential with good reason, then great. Based on what we saw of Haller in GW1, I don't see any good reason to really captain him. You seem to be suggesting him to avoid Salah and Sterling purely because they're popular and not differentials.

                              No, with his team I would play it safe and go with Salah.

                              He seems to be looking for a differential though, hence my suggestion.

                              1. COK3Y5MURF

                                So you're giving advice you yourself wouldn't follow. Great.

                      since you’re so experienced and keen on differential captains i guess you have a great sample size wrt this. so measure ur career differential captaincy success vs what most popular choice would have scored you and let us know the results

                          A few seasons ago, Ivanovic was a differential captain in GW1. Mignolet was a differential captain once even. Penalty saves and clean sheet. It's a thing.

                          I can tell you already that by finishing in the top 500 a few seasons it definitely works.

                          Not without risk though, I've had my fair share of bad seasons where I've finished ~70k.

                                    Just for your future reference, try to at least have something to back up the contrarian opinions you have. At the moment, you neither present any stats, nor have any prior FPL experience and makes you look a tad silly.

                              No one knows exactly but it seems to be based on the percentage of transfers in and out. So a player with high ownership needs more transfers in or out to rise and fall. Its pretty much speculation though and they seem to change the formula every year.

                              Theres also very likely manually set thresholds for some players. For instance Salah last season when a lot of people sold him didnt seem to follow the normal rules for price drops.

                              FPL Towers hold the right to manipulate changes based on the players they own and how it suits them.

                            Latest quote by Potter saying Trossard was "unlucky" not to start doesn't really make my decision easier for this week's selection.

                            Should I start him or Montoya?

                              Thanks. Gives us hope that he will start in GW2, but will he change a team that won convincingly ? I doubt it.

                                Interpret it as if he thinks Trossard had earned a start but can't field everyone and decided to go for Gross experience

                            I compiled a team with three 4.0's at the back last week, it would have scored 116 points with Sterling as captain. That's 25 points more than my actual team.

                              I guess it won't for long though.. However, Rashford -> 6.0 and some upgrade in defence would actually make it look pretty decent

                                Yes, I could have used some of that 25 points to improve it and still have been better off.

                              Interesting but premium forwards are a value (points/GBP) **long-term** killer.

                              Wow, a hindsight team scored well. Color me surprised 😮

                                I did actually have that team for all of two seconds, with hindsight I could have done much better than that.

                                It's always a good idea to have a cheap defense. Ideally what you're looking to do is cover yourself by following the template for GKs/defenders and then having your differential in either midfield or up front. It tends to be up front this year.

                                I actually like that team you posted a lot, and it's similar to mine, but I didn't go with Auba and instead used those funds to pump up my midfield.

                                  It's always a good idea to ignore the highest value players in the game is it?

                                  Your confidently stated opinions are constantly, er, "interesting".

                                      I've had most success with this, you're not going to win FPL by copying everyone else's team.

                                            I'm not suggesting to ignore the highest valued players, but rather to merely cover them. Putting them as captain is playing it too safe, and should only happen when you're sure they're going to score high. I wouldn't captain Sterling this week for exactly that reason, as for Salah I could understand it, but if you're looking to escape the 60% of people who have selected him as captain, then that's not a bad idea.

                                                  How about you provide me the data that proves me wrong? We both know it's a ridiculous request to ask for 'data' here. I am telling you that my most successful seasons have been as a result of a cheap defense.

                                                  I'm getting further confused about what data you want as a result of me being involved in a few different discussions on here. Tell me what you want I'll get it.

                                                        Yes the logic is flawed here. Initially it's a good observation and it does serve the purpose, I was loaded it up in the back last season and it paid out for me. But everyone is doing it this season, and one thing we learn from playing this game is that copying what everyone else does is not always a good idea.

                                                        Besides, going for £4.5m at the back in the past was the common play and everyone did it so it allowed you to just blend in and not look for differential at the back, because it wasn't needed.

                                                        The game is changing, and hey maybe you're right to have 4 defenders that cost more than your midfielders, but that's not how I like to play it and I won't play it like that. I think that because everyone is doing this, they are not able to afford some really amazing players in MID/ST positions, and that's what I've gone for this season, and so far it's going okay, I have a little bit of flexibility with my line-up and I'm hoping it pays off.

                                                  Aaaah, that makes a lot of sense. When do we get to hear about how he loves to shaft Kev in his sleep?

                                                  Of course no team is going to be exactly the same, but if you're playing it safe you'll end up with more or less a similar season to most people. You'll ask for advice on here and you'll get the same answers, and that's good because it tells you what the majority of people would do in that situation, but that doesn't win you anything.

                                                  Btw your bench is probably Button, Lund, Dundoncker and Greenwood. Probably have Jota and Perez too.

                                                  I'm just saying, if you're that type of player then you don't understand what I'm getting at, but if you aren't then I'm sorry and I'm open to hearing what you think is wrong with my tactics. I'm just a risky player but I play it smart so that I have my risks covered.

                                                    Nope, wrong on all counts. I'm not that type of player, and I'm not that type of idiot who gets taken in by a tiresome troll.

                                                        Okay so if you're not that type of player then what don't you get about my play? I'm all about calculated differentials. You seem to be completely against the idea of owning a player that everyone else doesn't already own..

                                                After reading those articles and others I opted for 4 premium defenders rather than attackers, I'm still confident that it will turn out to be the right decision.

                                                    Terrible advice. You're not going to win by copying other people's teams. Sure, the last few seasons there were some really high scoring defenders, namely Robertson, who a lot of top managers had. But you didn't see them with 4 expensive defenders for god sake.

                                                    Great idea, should have played that team and worked from there. To be honest, I considered it myself, leaving a few Bob in the bank to add a season keeper each week.

                                                    i'm starting to doubt my team here - especially Siggy and Jiminez, not sure if i should stick or twist - and if the later, who?

                                                      I'd stick for another week, definitely with Siggy.

                                                      Siggy and Jimenez are playing bad defenses next week, I'd keep them.

                                                        Jimenez plays Manchester United. I wouldn't consider that a bad defence.

                                                        i'm thinking Perez - Martial, Jiminez to Pukki .....is that madness?

                                                        Sterling captain?
                                                        He is on form and has a great record vs Spurs. How was Spurs' defence looking vs Villa?

                                                          I can't see past Salah.

                                                            It's not really going to help you, putting him as captain will just cover your losses more or less, as pretty much everyone is putting him or Salah as captain.

                                                            I don't think Sterling vs Spurs is a good idea though, Salah should outscore him.

                                                            Honestly, go for a differential, even someone that's cheap that you think will play well.

                                                            Imo I don't know enough about Spurs' defence to be confident in Sterling haul. He could easily go mad again but Salah is the safer option imo.

                                                              especially since he won't have Willock and Nelson providing his service. Definitely wouldnt have captained him this week if I'd know that was going to happen.

                                                            Not that great, their defensive assets don´t look to have an ounce of service in them. Walker Peters was veeery conservative, didn´t look anywhere on the threat pace of AWB or Ainsley Maitland Niles...

                                                                9 days, 17 hours ago

                                                                Morning, could not watch many games / highlights (kids have new Xbox) and will appreciate opinion

                                                                Trying to take advantage of Adrian being availiable to upgrade elsewhere but would cost points (looking at -8)

                                                                Pickford (Button)
                                                                Wan-Bis / Coleman / Zinch / KWP (Rico)
                                                                Salah / Sterling / Moura / Pulisic (Dendonck)
                                                                Vardy / Haller (Greenwood)

                                                                a) I could switch Pickford to Adrian and either Coleman for a 4.5 DEF or Moura / Pulisic for 6.5 MED to upgrade Haller to Lacazette

                                                                b) But I also like my current team, can play 4-4-2, 3-5-2 or 4-5-1. Hold and give Haller more time

                                                                Thanks

                                                                  • Eytexi

                                                                  • Ishmaelito

Would definitely keep Haller (but don't know anything about Anderson-situation - maybe a serious injury would limit his prospects).

Was planning on Wilson->Rashford and either Rich->KDB or Perez->Martial, but worried I'm being kneejerky on a team which might come good in the next few weeks.

                                                                  Hold off and save, or twist?

                                                                    Definitely wouldn't sell Wilson or Richarlison this week. Perez -> Martial looks tempting but I'd probably save the transfer.

                                                                    82 felt like a great score on Sat night (with Perez still to play) until it turned out my work ML had all captained Sterling and also had Kane and McGinn!

Can see why Smith went with El Mohamady and Taylor at Spurs, despite their limitations they were key in the run in last season. I'd probably hold, give it another week or two and see how it unfolds, especially if you have a squad which can cover it?

Got 93 points, so I can't be to upset. I'm just starting to figure out if I should wait 1 more GW before i decide his future on my team.

I think he was one of their best players in preseason. Now i'm paying the price, removing dunk for him 24h before deadline 😀

Plan was to get Sterling in for gw3 and ditch Auba and Fraser then unless something happens. Cannot get Sterling and Rashford, but likely bandwagon Pukki has New and Che home and the latter is not as scary now as I thought before gw1.

                                                                  A) Wait and take .1 tv loss with Sterling and -4 (+extra downgrade) next week

                                                                  Don’t know why a percentage of you are panicking so much after week 1! Maybe you have Alisson as only goalie but apart from that people need to calm down. I’ve 3 Liverpool defenders and yes Allison’s injury does worry me but I’ll wait to see or hear more news. BSilva may not start next match but he will definitely play apart of it or soon start as pep loves him. Can’t fault Mahrez though but look how well Bravo played against Liverpool and he didn’t start 1st game. People need a Cadbury’s Caramel

                                                                    1. BattleOfDeBruyne
                                                                        9 days, 16 hours ago

                                                                        Honestly feel like they have to work him into the team somehow, but I can also see Mane getting more time.

                                                                        He'll probably be phased out but if we're lucky they might change up the formation to get him into the team, but atm it's unlikely.

                                                                        He's an amazing player though.

                                                                        1. JedJez

                                                                          Cheers fella, 5.5 for a decent Liverpool striker almost allows Sterling in...

                                                                          Just gonna have to hope De Brunyne finds the form of 2 years ago I guess

                                                                          1. BattleOfDeBruyne

                                                                              Yeah I'm opting for De Bruyne. I wouldn't buy in Origi just yet; but rather wait to see if he starts more games. It's not like he's going to become super expensive really quick, he's only £5.5 so he's not going anywhere.

                                                                        2. I Member
