The Digne injury latest as Everton’s defence ride their luck

Although the Wolverhampton Wanderers v Manchester United match is still to come, Everton are the only Premier League club with two clean sheets to their name in 2019/20 at the time of writing.

As we will discuss, though, this latest shut-out wasn’t straightforward and the Toffees suffered an injury scare to their most-owned Fantasy Premier League defender in the second half.

Everton 1-0 Watford

  • Goal: Bernard (£6.5m)
  • Assist: Lucas Digne (£6.0m)
  • Bonus: Bernard – 3, Digne – 2, Yerry Mina (£5.5m) – 1

Marco Silva didn’t appear too concerned about Lucas Digne‘s (£6.0m) hamstring injury after the left-back limped out of Everton’s win over Watford after 73 minutes.

Digne banked an assist, a clean sheet and two bonus points for his owners but they will now be sweating on his availability for the trip to Aston Villa in Gameweek 3.

Speaking after the match, Silva said:

We hope it is nothing really special. He started to feel a bit more tired [in the muscle] and gave the sign to me to make the change.

Let’s see in the next few days but we hope it is nothing special.

The Liverpool Echo report that Digne will undergo a scan to determine the extent of the problem but Leighton Baines (£5.0m) will be on standby to deputise having only just returned to training himself.

Should Baines and Digne not recover, we may see a repeat of Saturday’s reshuffle: Seamus Coleman (£5.5m) moved over to left-back following Digne’s departure, with Mason Holgate (£4.5m) thrown on at right-back as new signing Djibril Sidibe (£5.5m) wasn’t yet ready to feature.

Digne’s availability may also be being carefully monitored by owners of Gylfi Sigurdsson (£8.0m), who have seen Digne upset the Iceland international’s monopoly at set plays over the last year.

Sigurdsson was barely involved from open play on Saturday, with only Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.0m) registering fewer touches among the 22 starters, but carved out two excellent opportunities for Richarlison (£8.0m) from indirect free-kick situations, underlining how important dead-ball duties are to the Icelander.

Richarlison headed both of those chances over and it was another below-par display from the Brazilian, who was hooked on the hour-mark.

Calvert-Lewin again offered little from an offensive perspective and there was an element of fortune about Everton’s winner, with Bernard (£6.5m) collecting a long ball from Digne before firing a deflected effort beyond Ben Foster (£5.0m).

Having scored just three goals in seven pre-season outings, the Merseyside club have only one goal to their name in 2019/20 and there has been little incentive to invest in the Toffees’ attacking assets so far this campaign.

Moise Kean (£7.0m) may be the man Silva’s side have been crying out for, however.

The summer signing looked sharp in an 18-minute showing against the Hornets, managing to do what Calvert-Lewin hadn’t and actually get a shot away on goal.

The former Juventus man fired narrowly wide in stoppage time and it will be interesting to see how quickly his ascent to the first team will come from a Fantasy perspective, given how favourable Everton’s fixtures are in the coming weeks and months.

One thing that perhaps needs addressing is Calvert-Lewin’s work rate in attack and how he fits into Silva’s tactic of defending from the front.

Speaking after this latest clean sheet, Jordan Pickford (£5.0m) said:

It’s a full team effort, really, from the front, whoever starts up top. All the way through, we work hard in training all week. We’re resilient.

Silva added:

I like that the team is solid like we are, we’re not a defensive team at all. We play using a full pitch, and we like to press high.

We have to put quality in our work. The players have to understand the idea and philosophy, and we have to make them believe this is the way we can be stronger as a team.

Whether Kean can afford his side the same protection from the lone striker’s role remains to be seen and is something to monitor for those of us who own an Everton defender.

Saturday’s shut-out owned a bit to luck, it has to be said.

While Everton largely held Watford at bay despite the visitors bossing possession, the Hornets ought to have scored at least once: Craig Dawson (£5.0m) hit the bar from close range, Troy Deeney (£6.4m) fired into the face of Pickford when clean through and Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.9m) couldn’t steer in a deflected shot with the goal gaping.

Roberto Pereyra (£6.4m), back on the left flank in this match, also nodded over when well positioned.

How much Everton will miss Idrissa Gueye is also worth mentioning, with a lot being asked of Jean-Philippe Gbamin (£5.0m) as his replacement.

Watford will have been heartened by Saturday’s display if not the result, with the Toffees not really carving out any clear chances from open play and the Hornets looking more of a threat going forward than they had in Gameweek 1.

While some of his teammates still struggled to hit form, Gerard Deulofeu (£6.4m) was much better playing alongside Deeney up top than he had been in an illness-affected 45-minute showing on the left flank against Brighton and was Watford’s creative spark at Goodison – although failed to register a shot himself.

Danny Welbeck (£6.0m) came off the bench late on, meanwhile, to record his first minutes in a Watford shirt.

Reflecting on the game, Gracia said:

I think today we had a good performance. We were close to getting a better result. I think we deserved a better result.

We had some clear chances, some moments when we dominated the game. We had more possession and the same shots on target, more corners than them. But we didn’t score and we need to try to be better next time.

They scored from a long ball and we were a bit unlucky because our defender touched the shot a little bit.

After, we hit the crossbar, had a clear chance with Troy. I believed until the end.

In the second half, we started dominating and I think we had three corner kicks in the first three minutes. We were playing in the opposition’s half, but you have to score if you want to get points.

Everton season ticket holder @FFEyeTest did what his Twitter handle suggests and gave us his thoughts on Saturday’s game, saying:

Everton started brightly, with the full-backs playing a key role. Digne, in particular, set up the only goal of the game on 11 mins. Picking up the ball in his own half, he played a fantastic long ball to Bernard, who beat his man in the box and scored at the near post (with the help of a small deflection).

Watford’s main chance of the half came from a Holebas corner, a header from Dawson off the bar. The Hornets were a threat in the air all game. Mina nearly gave away a penalty just before half-time but VAR denied it.

Watford started brilliantly in the second period and had the best chance of the half on 57 mins. Richarlison gave the ball away and Deulofeu carried the ball to the edge of the box before playing a fantastic through ball to Deeney, who shot straight at Pickford – he should have scored.

As Moise Kean came on for his home debut, Digne went down off the ball. He went off for Holgate straight away but was able to walk off on his own accord. One to keep an eye on this week.

As Watford pressed for an equaliser at the end, Everton had a couple of chances on the counter with Kean, who looks sharp.

Watford will feel disappointed not to come away with a point, but Everton’s defence ground out a clean sheet yet again – a big three points for the Toffees.

Everton top performers = Bernard/Coleman
Watford top performers = Doucoure/Deulofeu

Everton XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Coleman, Keane, Mina, Digne (Holgate 73); Gomes, Gbamin; Richarlison (Walcott 63′), Sigurdsson, Bernard; Calvert-Lewin (Kean 72′).

Watford XI (4-4-2): Foster; Femenia, Dawson, Cathcart, Holebas; Pereyra, Doucoure, Capoue (Gray 83′), Hughes (Welbeck 67′); Deulofeu (Cleverley 78′), Deeney.

    Wan-B getting the night off would really help out my GW score with Lundstram first on my bench.

      Better chance of me winning the lottery mate

      1. Feanor
        • 12 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        Yeah, I should have started him instead of that fraud Fraser.

        1. Squeakybum99
          • 2 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          I started Perez instead of him. Fraser i think still a better call as opposed to Chelsea away albeit Chelsea aren’t that great. Reminded me of GW 1 last year with A1B

  2. Squeakybum99

    Hold regardless unless it’s a serious injury

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Digne has a pretty good injury history and hasn't really had anything more than a 5 game spell out for Barca in 17/18 and PSG in 13/14

  3. kime67

    Lot of wildcards veing used. Ou can tell when wickham and cantwell are on the first list

    I'm surprised not more is made of Everton's kind fixtures in this article. The case for their defence is strong.

    1. Skonto Rigga
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      We've been banging that drum since the fixtures were released!

      1. PogChamp
        • 10 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        Fair enough. I'm not really a regular. Didn't mean to criticize, just an observation.

        1. Skonto Rigga
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 4 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          He's not a regular! Let's get him, fellas.

          Yeah, it's worth reiterating - we'll be doing another Frisking the Fixtures this week so they'll be featuring high in that.

          1. PogChamp
            • 10 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            Good. Look forward to it.

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Is it actually. They were lucky and/or Watford players were just poor in front of the goal.

      1. Skonto Rigga
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        ...as I've mentioned above.

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          Yes, thanks for that and well written article 🙂

          I was only reminding about that and since Digne is injury doubt, this is perhaps as classical "don't sell, don't buy" situation as it could ever be.

          1. Skonto Rigga
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 4 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            Aye! Haha, yeah my botched comment above looks like I'm saying "I've already said that, how dare you repeat it" - was actually trying to agree with you!

      2. SADIO SANÉ
        • 6 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        Meyer and Ayew both had great chances last week too

        1. Skonto Rigga
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 4 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          Aye! Feel like I've got away with two clean sheets with Digne. Quite a few teams have better expected goals conceded figures (if you like that sort of thing).

            1. PogChamp
              • 10 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              If Digne is still yellow flagged Thursday night, I might do Henderson > Pickford.

      3. PogChamp
        • 10 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        Yeah I get that but they still kept a CS. 9 out of their next 10 are winnable.

  5. Miguel Sanchez

      I don’t see much difference but I’d save Wildcard.

    2. MTPockets
        2 years, 3 months ago

        B. basically the same except KDB

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          Thanks guys, slides wildcard back up sleeve.

      • The Yorkshire Pirlo
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        May as well save wildcard mate

    3. AzzaroMax99
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      I knee-jerked yesterday and used my 2 FT to get Pukki and Hanley as enabler, sold King and Guilbert.
      Now looking next gameweek ManU vs Cry and thinking to do Fraser to Martial for -4.
      Anybody thinking similar move? I know that Bou have nice fixtures after City but I am disappointed with their assets so far.

      1. dg
        • 9 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        Do you think Martial will outscore Fraser by at least 5 points next week? If so do it, if not don't. Simples.

        1. dg
          • 9 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          (I would hold)

      2. ‘Tis the Season
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        I did Fraser to martial yesterday

    4. dg
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Sat here with a solid start to the season, scores of 82 and 51, yet 6 of my players might drop this week! Madness.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        I want to avoid a Perez and Vardy drop.

        1. Shineonme
          • 5 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          Imo both will drop by Fri night

    5. unitednations
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Couple of quick questions:

      1) Any chance of Rico starting again at the expense of Charlie Daniels? Wondering Rico > landstrum (-4). Don’t like the hit aspect but I expect one of digne/taa not to play so want a bench player. Plus the value gained on landsturm

      2A) Kane + King with wickham 1st sub
      2B) Rashford + Pukki with King 1sub to give a more balanced team with 12 strong players

      Rest of team is
      Pope Heaton
      Taa digne VVD zincheko xxx
      Kdb sterling martial Perez Dendocker
      King xxx xxx

      1. Bucket Man
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        Keep Rico although I can’t see him getting back in no defender worth a hit.

        2A for sure

      2. zizoo10
        • 6 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        You need one of Salah or Mané, I can’t stress that enough. Literally caps your team at 4/10

        1. unitednations
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          yeah i had Salah but looking at Salah/Wilson >> KDB/Kane this gw..did the 1st part

    6. zizoo10
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      I took a -4 instead of WCing, but man if Kane ends up going 20+, I’ll be saying I’m so stupid and it was so obvious to wc and get him in

      1. KingOllie
        • 6 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        kane wont do much

        1. Slouch87
          • 6 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          Agree. I only expect him to get 3.

    7. Sndeshdhkl
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      1) salah + martial
      2) mane + son

      1. Bucket Man
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        Probably 2

      2. ‘Tis the Season
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        A

    8. The Overthinker
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Had a big discussion last week on whether you prefer A - who blanks 3/4 times but scores 3 goals in one week or player B - who scores 3/4 weeks .

      For eg - kane scored 2 against villa, whereas Aubameyang scored 2 goals in 2 gameweeks .

      Question is, do people still prefer player A over B?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        Kane got BPS in the Villa win so is on 15 points to Auba's 12

        1. KingOllie
          • 6 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          auba has been robbed of bonus in the first match

          and that stupid YC lost him 2 points on saturday

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            And now I'm losing him as part of a hit cause of Pukki's price rises. Should have just started with Kane.

            1. KingOllie
              • 6 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              why??? pukki isnt needed, better off getting him for 7m down the line

              1. Miguel Sanchez
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                2 years, 3 months ago

                Pukki could well be this season's Jimenez and don't want to have him get away from me.

                1. KingOllie
                  • 6 Years
                  2 years, 3 months ago

                  can also be mitrovic - not worth a hit for the sake of a few .1's

              2. Klaren
                • 4 Years
                2 years, 3 months ago

                Pukki is essential in the long run and the extra funds that you spend later to get him makes a big difference in TV. I think it is worth a -4 bringing him sooner than later.

      2. Snevitz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        I don't think it matters for midprice players who you never drop and never captain.
        If a premium player who you would captain gets big points against weaker opposition but rarely hauls against the top teams (Salah) then that is good if you have them in a captaincy rotation.
        When it's gets interesting is if you can have 5 or 6 cheap players who you expect to do much better against poor opponents as you can try to build up a rotation in your starting line up.
        Ceballos, McGinn, Lundstram, Dendoncker, Zinchenko, AWB and Pukki (Vs City) will all be rotated in my team depending on opposition.

    9. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      To fund Pukki, need a slight downgrade:

      A) Perez to Mount/McGinn/Ceballos (which?)
      B) Digne to Coleman (slight injury concern with Digne)

      1. Bucket Man
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        A to Mount would be my choice if Digne ok

      2. Marty McFly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        McGinn or Coleman is fine. N.B. I personally prefer Trezeguet to McGinn.

    10. Bucket Man
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Made an early move to get in Pukki for Wilson, now it’s a wait and see on Digne and if Martial in for Perez looks like a must. I’m hoping I can hold my other transfer though.

    11. wildnothing
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      How about this wildcard draft?

      Pope Ryan
      Mina AWB Stones Montoya Lundstram
      Salah Sterling KDB Martial Cantwell
      Rashford Pukki Wickham

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        Why on eart Stones on WC?

        1. wildnothing
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          Want someone cheap in City defence. Do you think Zinchenko is more nailed?

    12. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Did anyone go Salah -> KDB?

      1. Rasping Drive
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        I did, yes.

        1. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          Doesn’t mean you should, though 😀

          1. Bobby Digital
            • 4 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            I didn't.. went Robinson to Ceballos instead. I hope Salah scores next week and doesn't drop in value.

            1. Rasping Drive
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 12 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              Well obviously I hope he blanks. But he does have a good scoring record against Arsenal so no surprises if he does. I only hope Kane (c) doesn’t let me down, since selling Salah was not only to get KDB but also to finance Kane.

              1. Bobby Digital
                • 4 Years
                2 years, 3 months ago

                I got Kane as my cap as well. Hope he'll score too.

                Went with Kane, Salah and Sterling from the get go.

                  Good luck us, then!

        What you going to do if you want to get Salah back?

          I will cross that bridge if and when it comes.

            He may be totally outpriced by that time lol

              • 12 Years

              He’s only really 2 trades away, three max.

      Son or Kane?

      A) Son Lanzini Laporte
      B) Kane McGinn Walker

    14. The Big Fella
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Is anybody closer to making a decision about Chelsea offensive assets? Their fixtures are great but I am still not convinced about who will start.

      1. MTPockets
          2 years, 3 months ago

          yeah none

          1. The Big Fella
            • 5 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            Hahaha any reason? I am going to give Perez another week and then want to ship him out so looking for his potential replacement.

            1. MTPockets
                2 years, 3 months ago

                ditto on still not convinced about who will start

              • Atletico Junior
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                2 years, 3 months ago

                If you give him 1 more week, you HAVE to give him Bournemouth @home too

                1. The Big Fella
                  • 5 Years
                  2 years, 3 months ago

                  Yeah and then assess over the break

          2. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            Think i may be going in on Mount

            1. The Big Fella
              • 5 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              Not worried he will get rotated with Barkley?

              1. Baps hunter
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                2 years, 3 months ago

                One poor performance and that might happen.

              2. Miguel Sanchez
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                2 years, 3 months ago

                It could happen but don't see it right now. Chelsea were chasing a game yesterday and Barkley wasn't brought on and Mount lasted the 90. Says a lot about Lampard's estimation of them in my eyes.

          3. Baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            Mount is the target now.

          4. Rasping Drive
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            Pretty much what MTPockets said. Their frontline is pish. The only upside is their mids are relatively cheap but you will probably be relying on them to score 15 goals this season coz they ain’t gonna be assisting much.

        • SADIO SANÉ
          • 6 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          Pickford is a bargain at 5.0

          1. Burger
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            *5.5

            1. ‘Tis the Season
              • 3 Years

              Lol

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            Shame he is 5.5

            1. SADIO SANÉ
              • 6 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              I know

        • Connor's Calling
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          Have 2 FT, and i appreciate i've now missed Pukki's hatrick...but i like the fact that'll be the focal point for lots that NOR do going forward, in a way that King probably isnt for BOU. I also think Liverpool's defense can be re-assessed in a few weeks. So, thoughts on:

          TAA / Perez / King --> AWB / Martial / Pukki? [-4]

          [after the game tonight]

          1. MTPockets
              2 years, 3 months ago

              It's kneejerky but I've done it (for Deeney)

            • Rocky FPL
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              Doing the same, but wondering whether Perez to Martial is worth a hit.

          2. Brosstan
            • 7 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            Planning for next season as this one is pretty much over after missing Lundstram and Pukki hauls. How much do you all think Lundstram will cost next season? 7.0 mid? Trying to make a rough draft and want him in.

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 2 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              probably upwards of 7.5. Pukki will be 10.5 million.

              1. Brosstan
                • 7 Years
                2 years, 3 months ago

                Seems fair mate. Essential starters I think...

              2. marco_atk85
                • 8 Years
                2 years, 3 months ago

                Robbo should be 4.5 million to consider.

            2. Bobby Digital
              • 4 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              This isn't over.. don't be silly. DoubleGWs to go, wildcards, free hits, bench boosts and the lot.

              1. Slouch87
                • 6 Years
                2 years, 3 months ago

                Never seen a wind up before ?

          3. The Yorkshire Pirlo
            • 5 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            How’s this for a -4? Will I regret no Spurs?

            TAA, Wilson, Adams > AWB, Rashford, Pukki

            Heaton
            AWB - VVD - Montoya - Digne
            Salah - Sterling - KDB - Perez
            Rashford - Pukki

            McGovern - Lundstram - Dendoncker - Greenwood

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 2 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              Looks good

          4. _nod
            • 8 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            Pope
            TAA \ VVD \ Laporte \ Zouma
            Sterling (C) \ Son \ Martial \ Pérez
            Aubameyang \ Pukki

            Woodman \ Lundstram \ Greenwood \ Dendoncker

            Any other changes needed? I'm not convinced with double Liverpool deference, especially going in to this game, but willing to give it a couple of games. Same with Pérez and Zouma.

            1. KingOllie
              • 6 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              double LIV defence might be nice in gwk4/5 vs bur/new

              The team looks good for this, deffo dont take a hit

              1. _nod
                • 8 Years

            • 6 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            multiple one-on-ones now missed against Everton (in fairness Pickford is good) against two poor starters, still not convinced - luckily that Digne flag buys me some time

          6. Strchld
            • 5 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            WC activated, any thoughts?

            Pope (Button)
            VvD - Zinchenko - Digne - 4.5 (Lundstram)
            KdB - Mane - Sterling - Son (Denco)
            Jota - Pukki (4.5)

            I think it needs a Martial or Rashford, but cant get those without losing midfielder...

            1. Strchld
              • 5 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              Also, would you pick AWB or Zinchenko?

            2. pingissimus
              • 2 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              Have him but not 100% convinced by Jota - there's a horrible run of fixtures coming up and there's now a bona fide sub for him.

              Son? Could be a great move but he's been out of action and was horrible at the end of last season. Bold.

              I'd get Martial or Rashford in if either show anything tonight.

              1. Strchld
                • 5 Years
                2 years, 3 months ago

                If ManU looks good today, I could also do:

                Son and Jota > Martial and Rashford

            • 9 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            Currently on WC, like to get some votes:

            1) Rashford and McGinn

            2) Barnes and Martial

          8. mdm
            • 9 Years

            Who is the best 6.0 mid?

            1. S.Kuqi
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              Ceballos probably

            2. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              Mount, Trossard, McGinn or Ceballos right now

          9. Sadio
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            What would your strategy be on a wildcard this week?

            1. S.Kuqi
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              Double city attack
              Mane
              Maguire

              Would be the core of my team

              1. Pukki Blinders
                • 2 Years
                2 years, 3 months ago

                Maguire over AWB? Why?

                1. S.Kuqi
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  2 years, 3 months ago

                  Goal threat

            2. Shuko
              • 7 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              Not use one. How can a team be so bad in gw2 that 2 ft + ahit won't fit it?

            3. Bobby Digital
              • 4 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              Look at the fixture list and plan for the nexr 6GWs. You can adjust on the go.

              1. Bobby Digital
                • 4 Years
                2 years, 3 months ago

                next*

            4. PogChamp
              • 10 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              Everton defence, KDB, Sterling, Mane, Kane or Auba.

            5. Pukki Blinders
              • 2 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              Salah Sterling KDB Pukki. Build around that

          10. S.Kuqi
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            Tempted to bring Kean in for this gw. Might not start but other than Pukki there isn't anyone else for under 7.3

            1. KingOllie
              • 6 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              im sure he will start, DCL is absolutely useless as a striker.

              Hes had 2 cameos and is ready to start imo

              1. S.Kuqi
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                2 years, 3 months ago

                Thats what I'm thinking aswell

            2. Bubz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              Jota?

          11. SUPER MOKH
            • 5 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            How Robinson's injury? Is he still worth keeping now?

            1. Bobby Digital
              • 4 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              I went for ceballos.. but I had two freebies.

          12. lekalatch
            • 2 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            On WC.

            A) Kane McGinn Walker Adrian
            B) Rashford Trossard VanDijk Ederson

            Leaning towards A. Yes Adrian short term but I don't see why it's that big of a problem to transfer him out in 3-4GWs when Alisson is back. And Walker not 100%...

            1. The Big Fella
              • 5 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              It won't be 3-4 GWs, it will be 3-4 actual weeks and there is an international break coming up......
