Scout Notes

De Bruyne firmly on FPL radar after double-digit haul

Raheem Sterling (£12.1m) made it four goals in two Premier League matches as Manchester City were held by Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon.

It was the performance of Kevin De Bruyne (£9.6m) that really caught the eye, though, and we lead on the Belgian’s impressive display against the Lilywhites in our Scout Notes article below.

We also round up the other Fantasy talking points at the Etihad and provide some Members’ analysis at the bottom of this piece.

Manchester City 2-2 Tottenham Hotspur

  • Goals: Raheem Sterling (£12.1m), Sergio Aguero (£12.0m) | Erik Lamela (£6.0m), Lucas Moura (£7.5m)
  • Assists: Kevin De Bruyne (£9.6m) x2 | Lamela, Tanguy Ndombele (£6.1m)
  • Bonus Points: De Bruyne – 3, Lamela – 2, Ndombele – 1

After just two matches of the new season, De Bruyne already has as many Fantasy Premier League assists to his name as he did in an injury-ravaged 2018/19.

It is perhaps premature to say the Belgian is back to his scintillating best given that we are not yet out of August but few would argue that De Bruyne was the most influential player on show at the Etihad on Saturday, having looked in ominously good form in pre-season and in Gameweek 1.

The player himself said of his Gameweek 2 display:

I feel good and I’m becoming better. It’s still the beginning of the season so sometimes it’s heavy but I feel fine so everything will be OK this season.

Many Fantasy managers will still have reservations based on last season, given De Bruyne’s injury record: the former Chelsea and Wolfsburg midfielder had five separate spells on the sidelines with fitness issues of varying severity.

De Bruyne’s comments above even hint that he is still some way from feeling in top condition physically.

FPL bosses with longer memories will recall that the Belgium international made 36 and 37 Premier League appearances in 2016/17 and 2017/18, however, with all bar four of those coming from the start.

A fit and firing De Bruyne is a Fantasy force to be reckoned with, as Gameweek 2 underscored.

The Belgian playmaker was the supplier of Sterling and Sergio Aguero‘s (£12.0m) goals with two superb crosses from the right and would have claimed a hat-trick of assists had Ilkay Gundogan (£5.5m) not planted a side-footed effort narrowly wide on the stroke of half-time.

De Bruyne created three times as many opportunities as anyone else on show in Manchester and indeed registered more key passes than any other FPL asset in Gameweek 2 so far.

Assists are more likely than goals (that has been the case in each of his five previous seasons as a Premier League player) but De Bruyne is fond of a shot and more than capable of finding the back of the net himself.

Against Spurs, the Belgian whistled an effort narrowly wide of Hugo Lloris‘ (£5.5m) goal just after half-time, having earlier sliced an effort uncharacteristically high and wide when well positioned in the Spurs box.

One of the possible downsides to De Bruyne as a Fantasy asset (certainly compared to the likes of Sterling) is his more deep-lying position in central midfield.

It was notable on Saturday, however, just how advanced he was, often underlapping Bernardo Silva (£7.9m) on the right flank.

The superb Portugal international certainly wasn’t peripheral on Saturday – only Sterling had more shots and penalty box touches at Eastlands – but his limitations as a Fantasy asset were perhaps illustrated by the fact that he ‘assisted the assister’ for both of City’s goals.

Bernardo lobbed an effort against Lloris’s bar in the second half, unsurprisingly from a De Bruyne corner.

The Belgian’s continued availability and creativity could also be crucial to Sterling and Aguero this season.

The Argentinean striker was otherwise fairly quiet on his first start of 2019/20 and was indebted to De Bruyne’s teasing low ball from the right to double his goals tally for the new season.

Aguero was hooked for Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) midway through the second half, prompting a heated exchange between player and manager.

Pep Guardiola downplayed talk of any row after the game, saying:

He believes that I was upset with him for the goal we conceded but that was a corner, it was a one vs one movement.

He thought I was upset with him, I am animated but I was a player, I know what it’s like. We talked after and during, I love him a lot as a player.

Sterling gave Kyle Walker-Peters (£5.0m) a torrid afternoon down the left flank, especially in the first half, and scored a rare headed goal when nipping in front of his marker after 19 minutes.

In truth, we didn’t learn much new about the England winger as he carried on where he left off in 2018/19, registering more penalty box touches than any other Premier League player in Gameweek 2.

Another season of 30+ attacking returns likely beckons if he stays fit, particularly if De Bruyne can avoid injury.

City were utterly dominant in this game, having a late winner chalked off after VAR intervention and allowing Spurs just three shots on goal – two of which found the back of the net – and five penalty box touches.

The fact that they didn’t register a clean sheet would have been a great source of frustration to Fantasy managers and indeed Guardiola, who said after full-time:

We played incredible. One of the best games we’ve played in our time together. We played good, but unfortunately we could not win.

The way we arrive, create chances and put Tottenham deeper when they wanted to press. Unfortunately, when they cross the line they score and then a set-piece. Nothing else.

We play Tottenham, one of the best teams in Europe. Today was fantastic in everything we have done, our pressing, closing spaces, controlling counter-attacks and creating chances.

Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.5m) was part of the City backline that was breached but John Stones (£5.5m) missed out with a thigh problem.

A club statement said:

John Stones has suffered a rectus femoris strain and will miss today’s game at home to Tottenham Hotspur. The defender will be assessed and a prognosis is likely next week.

Owners of Spurs’ assets can probably just put this Gameweek 2 performance to one side and look forward to easier tests ahead, as Saturday’s display was almost non-existent from an attacking perspective.

Harry Kane (£11.0m) and Christian Eriksen (£8.9m) had little chance to impress, with Kane starved of service up top and Eriksen asked to play on the left of midfield in a 4-4-1-1.

The Dane spent much of his afternoon chasing shadows and perhaps showed his defensive naivety in that position given the time De Bruyne had to cross the ball from City’s right flank.

Erik Lamela (£6.0m) was the one bright spark as he curled in a strange equaliser from distance in the first half (Ederson‘s (£6.1m) positioning definitely up for debate) before assisting substitute Lucas Moura (£7.5m) for the visitors’ second leveller from a corner.

Even Lamela, providing support for Kane, was mostly tasked with pressing Rodri (£5.5m) in the centre of the hosts’ midfield and Mauricio Pochettino clearly set his stall out to sit deep.

The Spurs boss admitted his side were second-best, saying:

I think they were better. I think they dominated the game. It was clear the game. Of course, with the different circumstances of both teams, I am happy with the result. It was a very positive result for us here, one point. I’m happy because of the point but like I said after the game against Aston Villa we need to improve a lot.

An away match at City is unlike any other, of course, and we can expect Spurs to show a similar level of attacking ambition against Newcastle next Sunday as they exhibited in Gameweek 1 when racking up 31 shots against Aston Villa.

Who joins Kane in the attacking positions is another question and Pochettino’s wealth of options is one of the downsides of owning a Spurs midfielder at present.

Lucas and Lamela presented convincing cases at the Etihad but Son Heung-min (£9.5m) now returns from suspension and Giovani Lo Celso (£7.5m) registered his first Premier League minutes as a substitute at the weekend.

Eriksen could yet stay in north London, too, while Dele Alli (£8.4m) is another name to throw into the mix when he returns from a hamstring injury.

Further back, Tanguy Ndombele (£6.1m) registered his second attacking return of the season with the assist for Lamela’s goal, although that was his only key pass and he registered just two final-third touches as Spurs struggled for meaningful possession.

Jan Vertonghen (£5.4m) again failed to start but there was another run-out at right-back for Walker-Peters.

Serge Aurier (£5.0m) wasn’t among the substitutes on Saturday and, with Juan Foyth (£5.0m) sidelined with an ankle injury, Walker-Peters’ owners will be hoping that the shirt is his to lose heading into Gameweek 3.

Reflecting on Walker-Peters’ display, Pochettino said:

I think he still needs to improve. He’s still so young. It’s not easy. When you’re a back-up player, your excitement and motivation is massive when you have the possibility to play. It’s an amazing opportunity no? You are focused 200 per cent to show you can play, but when you start to feel the responsibility that you are first choice we’ll see how he’s going to behave.

Today I think was a massive test to play against one of the best offensive players like Sterling. I think one thing good, but other needs to improve on. He’s still so young but the experience will be massive for him.

        If he has 3 million ITB there are loads of options

    3. ALegendJ

      Depends on the rest of your team

      Mount!
      I'm doing this swap myself, or to be honest I've allready made it.

  2. Christina.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    Time for KdB. Even I have to admit it.

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I started with him as a placeholder for Son but keeping him now for sure.

      1. Dele
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Salah, Sterling, Son, KDB the quartet you need, fill the remaining gaps.

        1. Francescoli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Until Kane bags a hatrick against Newcastle.

          1. Valar(Keith)
            • 11 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            This. All I want this week is for Kane to score atleast a brace. Everyone else can do nothing as far as I'm concerned 🙂

    2. ALegendJ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      With those fixtures, he is near essential

  3. unitednations
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Already decided on the following but wanted to peoples views on best combo

    A: Lundstrum (rotates with Dendocker)+ Salah
    B: TAA + KDB

    Need funds to do Wilson > kane hence dropping either Salah or taa.

    1. ALegendJ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Close, but A gives you the captaincy option that B doesnt much

      1. Valar(Keith)
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I'm gonna be captaining kdb at home gw4 and 6 and have no issues doing it tbh

        1. Valar(Keith)
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Though I agree Salah is usually the best captain choice in the game so I have him too

    2. Konstaapeli
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      B. KDB has form and fixtures. Will most likely match Salah in next 6-8 weeks. Counting on Lundstram will end up in tears.

  4. Inazuma X1
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Should I stick with triple LEI or get rid of Perez to Mount/Ceballos?

  5. ALegendJ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    On WC, a 5m def, might punt on a Chelsea player. Who's more nailed?

    A) Christensen
    B) Zouma

    1. diabydoesgallas
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I’m a Chelsea fan, and I think Christensen. But I’d honestly steer clear of our defenders tbh.

    2. Kellz86
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A more nailed imo

    3. ALegendJ

      Thanks for the replies

  6. iL PiStOlErO

    Guys what do you say? Best rhing to do?

    Heaton Pope
    TAA Digne PVA Montoya Guilbert
    Salah (C) Siggy Bilva Fraser Mcginn
    Kane King Wickham

    2FT, 0.0 itb

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year

      *thing. Ps.ignore Salah as C

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      PVA Guilbert Silva Siggy could be improved.

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I would love to keep Siggy, especially now with Digne maybe injured. But others are on my "get rid" list

  7. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Morning all. What to do here with 2FTs 0ITB

    Pope
    TAA VVD Digne Montoya
    Salah Sterling Perez Trossard
    Auba Jota

    Woodman Dendocker Greenwood Rico

    Priorities to bring in - Kane, KDB, Pukki

    To lose? Perez

    1. Greek Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Pretty solid team but at a push downgrade TAA to Lundstram and Perez to KDB?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Interesting shout. Just got priced out of this move.

        1. Valar(Keith)
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Long term you'd be playing lundstram and Montoya every week. So even though those moves looked amazing don't be too gutted.

        2. Greek Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Ah just seen the KDB price rise, my bad.

          It’s a bit of a tricky one with your team but personally I think it’s about time the Liverpool double up goes

  8. fpork
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Any changes you would do? 2FT. Kane to Auba, Diop to Lundstram? Other?
    Heaton - Button
    Montoya - Wan-Bissaka - Robertson - Diop - Walker-Peters
    Salah - Sterling - Trossard - Tielemans - Dendoncker
    Aubameyang - Wilson - Greenwood

  9. ZeBestee
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Best Spurs asset?

    1) Kane
    2) Son

    1. Dont_Win_Friends_With_Salah…
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Kane

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Kane if you still trust him with the captaincy

    3. Valar(Keith)
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Last year son.. This year Kane. Reasons being the huge difference in pricing is now down to just 1.5 and not nearly 4 million like last year. For 1.5 more your get the following : 1. there is still no competition upfront whereas spurs have added more competition in midfield so you can be sure about Kane starting every game. 2. Penalties. If the gulf in price was even 2.5 it wouldn't be worth it. But at just 1.5 I'd say Kane is better.

      1. Konstaapeli
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Good reasoning.

        1. Valar(Keith)
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          I have a lot of patience with Kane. If he has an injury free season he will hit his usual 25+ goals. The problem with him is he almost always frustrates and is the source of a lot of hatred on this site when he blanks. So you have to be patient and keep him long term and enjoy the 2 pointerd along the 13 pointers.

          1. Valar(Keith)
            • 11 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Accept the many 2 pointers and enjoy the 13 pointers*

            1. Valar(Keith)
              • 11 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              It's usually 2 2 9 13 2 2 13 9 with him.. Which works out to 6 points a game. But can be very frustrating and difficult to hold through the blanks.

              1. COK3Y5MURF
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 year, 3 months ago

                This is exactly why I can't stand Kane. And those 2s will always be when I captain him.

                1. Valar(Keith)
                  • 11 Years
                  1 year, 3 months ago

                  And the comments on here when he blanks is annoying as hell to sit through for a week since when he blanks he really looks terrible lol.

              2. Konstaapeli
                • 4 Years
                1 year, 3 months ago

                Yes. And you need a bit of luck to captain him at the right times.

                1. Valar(Keith)
                  • 11 Years
                  1 year, 3 months ago

                  Yup. Il only be trusting with the captaincy about 25% of the time. Salah covers my captaincy for a huge majority of games and kdb the rest.

    4. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Kane

    5. Federerisgod
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Son for me. I know Kane got that super late brace against Villa but Son will be the more explosive option

  10. TSILIKAFENEIAKOS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Looking to offload Perez but to who? No ITB so I am looking for either Mount or McGinn? Any ideas?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      McGinn more nailed at this stage

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 3 months ago

        This

    2. Fire Chief Moe
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Gone Mount, easy change if he's not starting in a few games.

  11. Rik Waller
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Play:
    King (MCI)
    Lundstram (LEI)
    Dendocker (BUR)

    1. amit1964
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      king, even if it is 5-1 to citiy he can score

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Anonymous vs Villa. Scored penalty because Heaton stupidly tripped Wilson under no threat after 45 secs

      2. Rik Waller
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Yeh but are the odds of that higher than a SHU clean or Lunstram attacking return.

      3. Rik Waller
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Just watching MOTD2 now and it looks like Lundstram is almost playing a KDB role. Might go for him.

  12. pjanns
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Barkley + Salah + Robbo —> Lundstram, Mane, KDB

    Will be rotating Montoya and Lundstram.

    Or would you just get rid of Barkley?

    1. abaalan
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Do they rotate well?

    2. Schliegs
      • 4 Years

      Na I like it

  13. Atimis
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Took -4, recon I should be good for at least 2 weeks?

    Ryan
    TAA/Digne/WB
    Salah/Sterling(c)/KDB/Martial/Ceballos
    Pukki/Jota

    Button/Lund/Rico/Green

      Diop or lundstram I'd say. Maybe a Shu one otherwise

    Any thoughts on use of transfers here (2FT, 0.0ITB):

    Heaton / Pope
    VVD / KWP / Zinchenko / Digne / Montoya
    Salah / Sterling / Perez / Trossard / Dendoncker
    Kane / King / Wickham

    Thinking getting rid of Perez and banking the other. Possibly McGinn, Mount or lanzini

    Pencilled in KDB after GW1. Wish he didn't play so well in GW2. Now he's too popular 😕

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Many have to rip their teams to get him in tho. Lots of hits and WC's burned.

    2. Valar(Keith)
      • 11 Years

      Haha. Started with him. Glad he performed well since I got the points but it's bitter sweet since my main differential and premium I've enjoyed owning is going to be in all my ML teams. If he is fit all season I can see him coming within 20 to 30 points of Sterling for 2.5 less

      1. Konstaapeli
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Same here. But it's so much better to own him instead trying to figure out how to get him.

        1. Valar(Keith)
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Yup. Made a Conscious decision in pre season to keep him all season If he is fit and will stick to it until injury.

      Trying to resist to bring him in for a hit this GW. I would need to remove some other good players with good fixtures, so its not worth it.

  20. cescpistols111

    What to do with this team? 2FT, 0.0 ITB. Willing to take a -4 hit as well.

    Heaton Button
    Robertson Digne Aarons Lowton Lundstram
    Salah Sterling Perez Trossard Dendoncker
    Kane King Jota

    Anyone else thinking of Salah -> Mane?
    I know it's early but that extra 1m could be helpful.

    1. diabydoesgallas
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Trouble is, if Liverpool have a good fixture and the majority have captained salah, and he scores a few goals... you’re way behind.

    2. Schliegs
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Could be a master stroke, I wouldn’t do it personally though.

  22. Schliegs
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Doing a mini wildcard, already cleared out some of my deadwood using my 2fts.
    I still have a few more changes to make with Balbuena and Wilson on the chopping block.

    Which combo do you prefer?
    (I’m aware some are different positions but it’s who will be starting for my team)

    A. Wilson + Dendo (no hits)
    B. Jesus + Dendo -4
    C. Jesus + 4.5 Defender/Lundstram -8

    1. SirT83
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      A
      Not sure Jesus will start.

      1. Schliegs
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Does he need to start though? He comes on fresh everytime against tired defenders and looks like scoring every time, could be a very tasty differential.

        1. SirT83
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Yes, with that price tag he does need to start.

    2. Pino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A

      dont chop Wilson just becouse you needto free up cash. He can score against City and has great fixtures after that.

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        He's been poor

        1. Schliegs
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          I agree, very poor

  23. circusmonkey
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1 year, 3 months ago

    Does Matip have the shirt now, or will it constantly change?
    Is it better to try for double Liverpool defence or just play safe with an Everton or ManU defender? (would be double ManU defence).

  24. TaiwanHC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Does anyone know why I can't see the HoF teams? It worked last season.

  25. The Man Pastore
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    I have done Salah / Fraser / Perez --> Mane / KDB / Ceballos for -4pts yesterday.

    Was it worth it or a mistake?

    New team is:

    Pope
    VVD Digne Dunk
    Mane Sterling KDB Ceballos Mcginn
    Auba Jota

    Button Guilbert Rico Greenwood

    1. SirT83
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Not a mistake. However I would have changed Auba to Kane. Easier fixtures before WC.

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Any money in the bank?

      1. The Man Pastore
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        0.0ITB

    3. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      -4 and possibly no starting bench players

      1. The Man Pastore
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I'll fix this next week... That is one of the only move I could do to get KDB before his rise and Fraser fall in price

    4. Danstoke82
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I’m not easy on letting Salah go even if it was for Mane.

  26. SirT83
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Got 0.5 itb.
    Looking to upgrade somewhere.

    Ryan (Button)
    TAA Zinch Digne Montoya (Rico)
    Salah Siggy Mount KDB (Dendonck
    Ings Kane (King)

    Due to hard fixtures I'm looking to swap King. But for who?
    You have other thoughts?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Pukki?

      1. SirT83
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Yeah, I know. However his fixtures are not good at all. Not sure he will keep this form up. Might get him on a WC in gw 5-7.

        1. Konstaapeli
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          A goal or assist against Chelsea and he will be 7+ by then

      2. Konstaapeli
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Yep. No Pukki no party.

  27. Hazardous1983

    what to do

    lloris (button)
    robbo taa digne dunk (lundstram)
    salah sterling fraser perez (dendonker)
    wilson jota (greenwood)

    2 ft in the bank 0

  28. Danstoke82
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    These moves a bit crazy?

    KWP + Fraser + Perez > Lundstram + McGinn + KDB -8

    Current team:
    Pope
    VVD Digne KWP Dunk
    Salah Sterling Perez Fraser
    Kane Pukki

    Subs; Button Deondocker Greenwood Rico

    1. The Fed
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Get Ceballos instead of McGinn

      1. Danstoke82
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        How nailed is Ceballos though with Ozil lingering?

  29. as33
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Hi, i have Sissoko, Lucas, should i get Kane asvel? Ryan
    Robbo, WB, Coleman
    Salah, Lucas, Sterling, Sissoko, Perez
    Auba, King
    Auba>Kane?

  30. FPL-(VAR)dy
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Captain
    Kane(vs NEW) or Sterling(vs bou)

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Tough. I will be doing Kane, but if I had Sterling I would really think about it
