Captain Poll

Salah and Sterling expected to battle for Gameweek 2 captaincy

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) and Raheem Sterling (£12.0m) are expected to do battle for the Gameweek 2 captaincy.

The Egyptian was the overwhelming favourite for the armband in Gameweek 1 and rewarded his backers with a 12 point haul against Norwich.

However, Sterling went one better by netting a hat-trick and coming away from a 5-0 win over West Ham with a 20-point haul.

That big score is likely to inspire a host of Fantasy managers to captain the Englishman in Gameweek 2 as Spurs come to the Etihad Stadium.

Sterling was involved in 20 goals at home last season, 12 his own and eight assists, only Salah registering more involvements in front of his own fans (21).

Meanwhile, Spurs looked far from assured defensively as took their time to get into gear against Aston Villa in Gameweek 1.

However, Salah faces a trip to Southampton, a team he is more than capable of registering attacking involvement against.

Last season the Egpytian scored more goals away from home than any other player while Southampton kept just three clean sheets in front of their own fans.

Only Manchester United managed fewer than that in the whole of 2018/19 (two).

After registering a 13-point haul against Aston Villa, there is plenty of interest in Harry Kane (£11.0m).

However, it seems unlikely that many will back him for the captaincy considering it’s a trip to Manchester City up next.

More likely to trouble the favourites as a differential option is Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m).

He scored the only goal in Arsenal’s 1-0 win at Newcastle and faces a Gameweek 2 Saturday lunch-time meeting with Burnley.

You can now vote in the Gameweek 2 captain poll either below or in the website’s side-bar.

Joe and David will be discussing the captaincy on our YouTube channel at 12:30 pm on Monday afternoon too.

    Best 6m or less midfield ?
    Trezeguet
    McGinn
    Grealish
    Barkley
    Mount
    Or suggest other ?

    1. yakirh

      Too soon to tell, McGinn looks best

      1. Rust Cohle
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        I liked Trezeguet better than McGinn. Didn’t like that he was taken off though. McGinn looks like he could be a card magnet.

      robinson

      1. Arsenal97

        Sheffield has a lot of attacking options : Sharp McBurnie McGoldrick i think we will see some rotation next GWs

    3. The Wise Owl
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Flavour of the GW is McGinn

    4. Harper
      • 5 Years

      Buendia

    5. Rust Cohle

      11 months, 29 days ago

      Mount. His average position was high up the pitch. Corners. Lead the team in touches in the box. Played the full 90.

      Would like to see a few matches. I can get a see of what their attack will look like when Frank has a full squad to choose from.

      1. Arsenal97
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        Yes i saw him on corners + they have a quite easy fixtures but they need a good finishers

    6. Sugar Kane
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Barkley

    7. EMBOLOFAN
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      still ross imo

    8. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      I am monitoring Gudmundsson and Dan James

  2. Bubz
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    Everton fixtures are lovely. Quite fancy Siggy but 8.0m is such an awkward price, wish he was 7.5 🙁

    1. The Wise Owl
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      True. Richarlison also expensive. Iwobi could be interesting at 6.0

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 29 days ago

        has pretty bad underlying stats

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          11 months, 29 days ago

          Has he played for Everton yet?

          1. EMBOLOFAN
            • 1 Year
            11 months, 29 days ago

            no he had bad underlying stats for a better, more attacking team over a decent sample

  3. Andrew
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    Bottomed out :-

    Play Dendoncker over KWP this GW?

    1. CROCosta
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      sure

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Yes - that's what I'm doing

    3. Sugar Kane
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Oh yeh bud

  4. Gooner Kebab
    • 7 Years

    How was Deulofeu before he was yanked for Pereyra?

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      POO, and poo.

    2. BadgersBoys
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Absolute pish.

  5. BattleOfDeBruyne
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 29 days ago

    Captain Salah/Sterling is just the safe option. Do we really want to follow the flock? I'm thinking there's potential for differential by backing Aguero, Mane/Origi, etc. Any suggestions... Thinking of transferring in a unique captaincy choice who has the potential to score higher, but still keeping Salah for a bit of coverage.

    1. Bruce Lee
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      i'm now a fan of being a non-boring player and not going with the template, but captaincy is an unneeded risk... salah and sterling are way too good to ignore for captaincy

    2. thewhitepele
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      In addition to Salah/Sterling being safer options, I would argue that Aguero/Mane/Origi aren't the next best options due to the high(ish) risk of them coming in from the bench or being subbed off early.

    3. KingOllie
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Mane could haul vs his old club

    4. lugs
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Richarlison against a woeful Watford, which has the added bonus of being against his former club and manager that he probably hates

    5. EMBOLOFAN
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      differential captaincies kill your rank, never do it

      1. Tamagotchi Massacre
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        This

        Cover the big losses, look for the small gains.

    6. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Differential captaincies should be left to desperate times.

    7. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      For this early stage I would opt to get it steady and low risk for captaincy ... differentials, if wished, would on other part of my team ... differential captain will be deployed later when there is clear 'business case' 🙂

    Is siggy worth a punt? He did get good chances, has good fixtures and on penalties I believe?

    1. lilmessipran
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Yea, definitely one of those consistent/non explosive players that will tick along nicely, you will have to be patient with him though

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      siggy aint a punt he delivers every year and has a great run of fixtures

        Hey PDM...thanks for this...and I am Eric from the Draft that we did last week. I knew that I had seen your name around here in the past, and there I see a 10 years badge next to both of us. So that means we were both here way back to the "Shorey" article days with Puffinboy and the other originals. It is fitting that we did that draft together. Good luck this season!

          Good to hear that you are another "fossil" on here ..... Draft for me isn`t going to plan 🙁

  8. BattleOfDeBruyne

    Kelly or Lascelles?

    1. Andy'81
      • 2 Years

      Kelly to start but neither to buy.

    Hi,
    Good start to the 19/20 season.
    Who would you start out of this bunch? Probably going to roll my transfer (thinking of ways to get Rashford in the future). Thank you

    Pope (Button)
    Robertson Zinchenko Dunk Diop Kelly
    Salah Sterling Milivojevic Perez Dendonker
    Kane Wilson Greenwood

    1. Brooksy86
      • 4 Years

      Roll this week. 2FT next week is gunna be the key I reckon when everyone else is panic WCin

    2. Sugar Kane
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Just do Milivo-flop to Martial. Relying on pens every week is poor at that price point

      1. hewittj1
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        i agree, the problem is Martial is 7.5 while Mili is only 7.0

    3. Taa very much
      • 9 Years

      Kelly
      Diop
      Greenwood 1st sub

  10. Evasivo
    • 10 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    How did Moura look? Pretty happy with an assist but the battle of the £7.5s is being won by Martial with fixtures also on par

    1. Bubz
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Spurs in general didn't look great and struggled to create space and chances, so Moura in turn looked a bit ineffective for most of the game. He would do well in a game with more space and counter attack though, which Man City potentially could be

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 29 days ago

        he’ll barely touch the ball imo

        1. Bubz
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 29 days ago

          City are good but they're not that good

          1. Sugar Kane
            • 2 Years
            11 months, 29 days ago

            No doubt, Moura will be running around in circles, chasing the ball all game. City are the standard

          2. EMBOLOFAN
            • 1 Year
            11 months, 29 days ago

                  11 months, 29 days ago

                  Was replying to the guys comment above

      2. Evasivo
        • 10 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        Thanks Bubz, I didn't see the game just the scores so that helps. Tbf Moura could've been unlucky and Martial lucky, don't fancy chasing last week's points

        1. Bubz
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 29 days ago

          I'd definitely rather have Martial of the two though, if you have absolutely no pressing issues I wouldnt blame you making the move

    2. Markus
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      The fact that lamela played should be heartening that while Alli is out you've got a chance of Kane flanked by Moura and son pushing on rather than an either or. I'd keep for next 2 as no obvious alternative candidates (apart from martial) have raised their hands yet

    3. Rust Cohle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Neither one of them (Martial or Maura) looked particularly good. I think that, if you have a 7.5 mid, you should probably hold.

      1. Evasivo
        • 10 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        Thanks Rust, I agree but looking for consolidation and got it.

      2. Maddamotha
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        Martial looked great.

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          11 months, 29 days ago

          A bit too much here ...

  11. KingOllie
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    Anyone watch the Everton match?

    How did the fullbacks look? Digne and coleman

    1. I Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Both looked good.

    2. Quite Big Dunc
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Digne looked significantly better than Coleman, I thought.

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Digne was good to watch (re FPL potential as well)

  12. EMBOLOFAN
    • 1 Year

    auba owners! you captaining?

    1. Bubz
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      I would if I owned him

    2. KingOllie
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      yeppp, he looked very good yesterday, if he had better service there was a couple more goals in him

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 29 days ago

        cheers - i missed the game as im abroad so thats good to hear

    4. Twisted Saltergater

      yep

    5. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      I would

  13. xpression
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 29 days ago

    Do I bin off Moura? I already have Martial, so no easy Moura -> Martial.

    I also have Zouma :'(

    Or just keep the FT, the rest of my team is good.

    1. Sugar Kane
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Moura to Barkley, use the funds elsewhere

    2. hewittj1
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      who would you replace Moura with? I would be tempted to roll it

    3. Sgt Frank Drebin
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Imho the most reasonable would be to save FT in this situation. Unless you maybe have 0.5 itb to upgrade to Siggy (probably not though...)?

      1. xpression
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 29 days ago

        Nope,

        Heaton / Pope

        VVD / TAA / Zinchenko / Zouma / Kelly

        Salah / Sterling / Martial / Moura / Dendoncker

        Wilson / King / Greenwood

    What are the chances of Sanchez confusing the picture at United in a few weeks? He had a decent CA no?

    1. Bubz
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Sanchez is done at Utd imo, he will hardly play

      1. pingissimus
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 29 days ago

        That was my assumption.

        But OGS barely played Martial regularly last time out and I was all set on avoiding him because of that until the last minute. All his decent returns pretty much came under Mou.

        Without Lukaku around United look curiously light up top with Greenwood next in line. I imagine it would take another form downturn to bring back Sanchez though.

        1. Maddamotha
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 29 days ago

          Ive said since last season Martial is nailed, and OGS likes him. He got the number 9 back and is playing as a striker. For 7.5m thats a bargain.

    2. fantasyfog
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Auba or kane

      1. fantasyfog
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        fail

    3. CROCosta
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Sanchez might be off to Roma, and even if he stays I doubt he will get more then 600mins throughtout the season

  15. AnyoneButLiverpool
    11 months, 29 days ago

    Those without United attackers, you gonna wait until the Wolves game?

    1. Sugar Kane
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Martial is looking good, 7.5 OOP striker in a top 6 team. Has the managers backing too, 90 mins and Rashford got subbed, all the signals are aligning. Heard here that Pogba is still on pens and he just gave it to Rashford, so thats something to consider too

    2. hewittj1
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      I want Martial, but will probably wait for Palace H GWK 3

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Yes wait till GW3 bar crazy price increase ...

  16. I Member
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    What are Barkley owners doing? Thought he looked quite dangerous and didn't understand why Lampard subbed him instead of Mount who struggled. I guess we have to keep and hope he starts against Leicester.

    1. Bubz
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Would defo keep if I owned him, he was one of their best players, no idea why he was subbed off. Good fixtures

    2. Sugar Kane
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Keep, will pay off

    3. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      At 6.0? Keep fo sho.

    4. EMBOLOFAN
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      absolutely keeping. there’ll be some rotation and will be subbed off early often but he’ll play more than mount i think. 6m is really cheap

    5. J.A.R.V.I.S
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      1-0 down but on top in the game...took Barkley off, lost 4-0...

    6. slove
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      I didn't get him in for a 1 or 2 GW punt, being subbed is obviously disappointing but the fact he started as the 10 in a big game is a good sign for me. Has a great run of fixtures and has gotten the only one I was worried about out of the way. Keeping him for another few GWs, it is important to remember that he is only 6m and that it was one game, can easily see him grabbing some points in the coming weeks

      See what happens midweek and wait for pressers.

  17. YouReds
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    Which 2 defenders would you start?

    a) Dunk (WHU)
    b) Balbuena (bha)
    c) Zouma (LEI)
    d) Rico (avl)

    1. Sugar Kane
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Rico, Zouma. Reckon Zouma will be itching to redeem his shite performance and play well at home

    2. hewittj1
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Dunk, Zouma

    3. Skill
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Dunk and Zouma

  18. Dreed300391
    11 months, 29 days ago

    Am i the only one to take a punt on Adrian in goal for a few GWs? Expected to play next 5/6 games.

    Adrian-(Ryan)
    AWB-Dunk-Kelly (Hanley-KWP)
    Sterling-Fraser-Martial-Barkley(perez)
    Jota-Aubamayeng-Kane

    Do i downgrade Kane or Aubamayeng to rashford, downgrade Perez/Barkley to Dendoncker, and boost Fraser into Salah over the next couple of GWs?

    1. fantasyfog
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      good team leave

    2. Regin
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Do it. I played my WC now only and put Adrian in goal. Put Salah, mane and sterling in mid. Kane good fixtures from gw3.

    3. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      1.3% currently have him, only a few less than Henderson, whom many have been raving about.

  19. fantasyfog
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    auba or kane....

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      neither if you dont already own

      1. fantasyfog
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        stupid ass comment

        1. fantasyfog
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 29 days ago

          unless you pick a team and make NO changes all season

        2. jtreble
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 29 days ago

          Unless of course you’re a manager who’s using a value approach ... :).

          1. fantasyfog
            • 5 Years
            11 months, 29 days ago

            a value approach, just wants a team value not points??

            1. jtreble
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              11 months, 29 days ago

              Points/GBP. :).

        3. EMBOLOFAN
          • 1 Year
          11 months, 29 days ago

          are you alright mate

          1. fantasyfog
            • 5 Years
            11 months, 29 days ago

            better than you I reckon

      2. OneMan
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        Just don't reply to this idiot again. Everyone take note.

        1. fantasyfog
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 29 days ago

          auba or kane was the question, am I missing something?

    2. The Seagulls and the Trawle…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      I think during GW 5 to 17 the answer might be Aubam AND Kane.

  20. Regin
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    Salah, mane, sterling midfield plus dendoncker, Hayden. How does that sound?

    1. fantasyfog
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      good if you have kane or auba up top and a good defence

      1. Regin
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        I have rashford, jota and pukki and a balanced defence of Adrian, AWB, zinchenko, Maitland, dunk

        1. gamesmad11
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 29 days ago

          unbalanced team

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      sounds good but why not get salah mane sterling plus kdb and mahrez with kane and aguero up fromt

    3. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      You mean play 3 midfield? Safe enough to add Donckers rather than a terrible 4th defender.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        Oh, seen your XI. Yeh, it's good to go.

  21. Andrew
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    Why is the week's highest score not showing on the FPL website

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Seems they have updated the website somewhat, and it is a bit of a mess - hopefully they will sort it.

      1. Andrew
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        App was terrible over the weekend too, took ages for players points to show.

        1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 29 days ago

          Yeah - and on the website, hitting refresh refreshed the points for your players, but didn't refresh the match info. Was all a bit glitchy, and seemed a bit slower than normal. No excuses really for FPL when you see what a site like Ragabolly's can do.

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      mate nobody is gonna be able to answer this on here are they

    3. J.A.R.V.I.S
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Apparently Microsoft no longer supports windows 95 so their was no update

  22. ElliotJHP
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    What would you rather do?

    A Lucas to Martial
    B King to Pukki
    C Roll transfer

    1. Netley Lucas
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      A and will do

    2. le flem
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      I'd wait on Wolves. Been a bit of a bogey team for MU.

    3. LSK
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      A

    4. Rust Cohle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      B or C.

      Martial is at Wolves. Not exactly a tasty fixture. If you don’t like City to keep a clean sheet against Spurs, Moura is as likely as any to nab a goal on the counter. Wouldn’t bash you for moving King (because I hate him as a fantasy asset), but I’d like to see Norwich when they aren’t playing the European champions. I know that they are attacking and all, but can’t hurt to wait for another week of information.

      1. ElliotJHP
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        Cheers mate, really helpful feedback

    5. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      C for me

  23. Jellyfish
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    Is Origi still worth a punt or has his ship already sailed?

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      sailed

    2. Netley Lucas
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Might get 30' after Mane's obligatory 60'.

    3. twoplustwo
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      I wouldn't given his prospects when Mane is back

    4. sglancelot
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      sailed imo

      1. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        Cheers all, kind of figured

    5. le flem
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Sailed far into the distance and sunk in Bermuda.

  24. Budweiser
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    Don't know if anybody has said but on Man Utds YouTube channel Rashford confirmed he's not the number 1 penalty taker. He says 4 or 5 people are comfortable taking one which makes it harder for the keeper to predict where the ball is going to go

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      total guess but suspect it will be pogba unless rashy wins the pen himself

    2. Netley Lucas
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Win it, if you're happy take it? Martial ever taken one?

      1. Budweiser
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        I remember him scoring a couple

        1. Netley Lucas
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 29 days ago

          Yeah, @mac last season. Hmmm...

      2. EMBOLOFAN
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 29 days ago

        martial looked like he’d never kicked a ball for most of yesterday

        1. Netley Lucas
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 29 days ago

          He swept the pass from Zouma nicely to DDG early doors. 😆

      3. Maddamotha
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        Took one in pre season

    3. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      His quote is on this homepage.

    4. LSK
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      My guess is that Rashford and Martial will take it if they win it to boost their confidence/goal tally and Pogba will take the rest. Obviously just a pure guess.

  25. twoplustwo
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    United are still a wait and see for me. Chelsea were 1. very accomodating and 2. a little unlucky.

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      basically yeah. united weren’t great at the back. martial oop is good tho

    2. Karan14
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Martial still looks great value at 7.5m playing almost like a striker.
      When he's in form and getting mins he delivers.
      His biggest problem in the past couple of season has been not enough mins because of injuries, dip in form/morale at United, competition for his spot and being forced to play on the LW which dont seem to be the problems this year hopefully.

      1. The Seagulls and the Trawle…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        His biggest problem is his mentality, how he approaches this game of football. Nevertheless statistically he looks good. Imagine if he discovers that hunger...

  26. KingOllie
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    The only thing that annoyed me this gameweek was Utd getting a clean sheet (not even sterlings hattrick bothered me as much)

    1. le flem
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Yeah, the result covered the lack of midfield cover of the defence. Chelsea could have had a couple to be fair.

    2. Tomerick
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Yep really rewarded the casuals that one.

      1. KingOllie
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        all those AWB and DDG owners getting 8 points.. yuck

        1. Tomerick
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 29 days ago

          Top of my mini league has AWB and Maguire.

          1. Nomar
            • 10 Years
            11 months, 29 days ago

            How dare he/she not follow the FFS template and try something different!

            1. Tomerick
              • 6 Years
              11 months, 29 days ago

              I doubt they even know what the template is never mind intentionally deviating from it.

              Still it will eventually get clawed back so all power to them for this week at least.

  27. le flem
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    How'd Sig look against Palace. Should I keep?

    1. Netley Lucas
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      He should have scored once, twice... yep.

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      he had a “big chance” (in opta terms), the only one of the game i think

  28. fplfansss
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    Choose one:
    A. Tielemans to Gross
    B. Kane to Auba
    C. Siggy to Pogba
    D. Save FT

    Cheers!

    1. Jellyfish
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      D

    2. twoplustwo
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Easy save

    3. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Groß not nailed, Tielemans looked good.

      B and C luxury moves, i'd save.

    4. tokara
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      U shld not be asking really

      Save

    5. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Save

  29. La vida FPL
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    Very tempted to do Perez > McGinn this week. Would free up £1m and could use for upgrades elsewhere.

    Didn't like the look of Perez this weekend and could be a big mistake.

    Anyone else tempted or is it just me being kneejerk?

    1. twoplustwo
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Can't be a big mistake at 6.5m

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      KJ. What did you buy Perez for?

    3. Tomerick
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      I’m giving him one more game.

    4. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Opening of the season and played solid Wolves backline ... so will give more time

  30. Tamagotchi Massacre
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 29 days ago

    Which rotations do you think everyone would say NO MATE DON'T DO THAT but SORRY MATE, ITS HAPPENING!

    I think I'm benching Perez (che) and playing Lundstram (CPL)

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 29 days ago

      You think Perez will be scared of this Chelsea defence?

      1. Tamagotchi Massacre
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 29 days ago

        That's an odd straw man.

        I think Kante will be back and Zouma will be watching on his phone using MacDonalds WiFi. So I don't expect the same awful performance. And I'm not especially taken with Perez position

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          11 months, 29 days ago

          I watched an interesting interview with Zola a few hours ago (assman of Chelsea last season) who explained why Kante can't play alongside Jorginho in the double-pivot. We can't assume Lamps will drop Zouma next GW. Not a straw man at all.

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 29 days ago

      Perez may score this non-Luiz non-Rudiger backline ...
