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.

    Need 7.3 striker or under. Already have Pukki and Jota.

    Kean worth a gamble or any better short term punts? Haller would be better but 0.2 short of getting him.

    Will probably wildcard in first int break

    1. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Why a third forward? Better value elsewhere IMHO.

      1. S.Kuqi

        • 9 Years

        Thats true but don't mind having 4.5 deadwood striker in my team

          If I choose to go for 352 I'll use wc to changed formation

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Unless you want Deloufelou (spelling) then rather save transfer and cash. There is also Barnes but then again depends if you are playing 3 up top.

      1. S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        Not a bad shout forgot Watford strikers completely

          • 6 Years
          2 years, 5 months ago

          more one for a few weeks time I think, I am convinced he is their best striker but is short on fitness

  2. Andrew

    Bottomed out :-

    What do I do with this shower of sh@t - have 2FT and £0 ITB

    Ryan Button
    Robbo VVD Zinchenko KWP Rico
    Salah Sterling Perez Barkley Dendoncker

    Suggestions please, don't mind taking a -4

    1. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Robbo & Barkley for Maguire & Martial.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        Double up on UTD when they are facing Wolves which is tonight's acid test for UTD assests...

        Wait before making such moves.

    2. Hy liverpool
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      King barkley Robbo to Rashford Mount/Mcginn Dunk

      1. Hy liverpool
        • 8 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        Or martial pukki and Dunk

  3. GoonerByron
    • 10 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    Happy with Dendonker as 5th mid but Cantwell is rising, should I swap to Cantwell if only for the rises if on WC?

    1. Wild Rover
      • 11 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      I'd say Cantwell is the better option regardless

      1. jtreble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        What happens to Cantwell when Hernández returns?

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      I would stick with Dendo.

    3. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Cantwell is prob better anyway

      1. GoonerByron
        • 10 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        Dendonker most advanced CM for Wolves, getting big chances.

        Cantwell 2 assists last game but 1 goal 2 assists in 24 Championship games last season..?

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 years, 5 months ago

          only Kdb have created more chances in midf than cantwell.

          1. GoonerByron
            • 10 Years
            2 years, 5 months ago

            Will hold off for now and see if Donk scores against Utd 😉

          no idea. worry about that in 3 months time.

  4. Wild Rover
    • 11 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    How long before Woy loses patience with Benteke and gives Wickham a chance? It's a joke how he keeps sticking with him

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Spoilt for choice there.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        Lol

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

      Hopefully soon. I can get rid of Greenwood then.

    3. Ⓙⓐⓡⓥⓘⓢⓗ CMIUK

      What happened to that Sorloth guy? Useless lump of crap he was!

      1. UpUp&Away...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        He´s in Trabzonspor now. Scored 3 goals the last weeks...

    4. Colonel Shoe 肝池

      Please let this happen

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

    Which captain this GW:

    A) Kane (NEW)
    B) Sterling (bou)

    1. GoonerByron
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      A

    2. Wild Rover
      • 11 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Not even considered Sterling.

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

        good record against Bournemouth

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

        Why? They're so leaky. I think City will steamroll them

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

      A

    4. fr3d
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      B

    5. KingOllie
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      I take it you watched Man City vs Spurs?

      Look how much better Man City were. Kane had an xG of 0.01

      Now they are playing different opponents, but Toon are more likely to sit deep and dig in away from home - despite still being hopeless.

      Bournemouth rarely do this, particularly at home, which plays right into Man Citys hands - with a city team after blood from dropping points.

      Now decide

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        Yeah but Newcastle looked absolutely shocking against Norwich, not sure they could defend with 15 players in their own half at the moment.

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

          Kane's shoot on sight policy could be FPL gold in that game.

        2. KingOllie
          • 6 Years
          2 years, 5 months ago

          Newcastle probably thought they could win, so they were trying to play, which let Norwich in far more easily.

          They wont do that away to Spurs, expect 5-4-0 formation hoping for a draw

          1. KingOllie
            • 6 Years
            2 years, 5 months ago

            5-5-0 *

          2. Would Ed Woodward
            • 3 Years
            2 years, 5 months ago

            I think they're missing Rondon massively, they don't have an outlet.

        3. Regin
          • 4 Years
          2 years, 5 months ago

          yo woodward. u didnt ask me how many points with my WC team I had pukki, mane, lundstram & got 65 pts with jota, rash to go. Jumped from 2.2m to 200k.

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

        Yeah - Sterling currently has my armband but I have Salah and Kane to consider too......

    6. yakirh
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      I have no idea
      Probably Sterling... or Kane... or Sterling... Oh god

    7. MagnetBPS
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      A all day

  6. Huddersfield
    • 6 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    Pope Button
    Dunk Soyuncu Lundstram ( Diop Hanley )
    Sterling Mané Bilva Son Norwood
    Kane Rashford

    I already made Siggy > Son and i have another FT
    Is Norwood > Pereira a good move ?

    1. MagnetBPS
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      not a good move

  7. NOSLEEPTILLBROOKLYN
    • 3 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    Is it necessary to ditch the double Liverpool defence?

    If so, should TAA or VVD be swapped out for AWB?

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      HELL NO!

    2. MagnetBPS
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Only to upgrade your mid/attack

    3. Klaren
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      No it's not necessary, people do it to enable funds to get KDB, Kane, etc. If you don't want to use the funds elsewhere in your team urgently, I'd keep for now.

    4. NOSLEEPTILLBROOKLYN
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Not majorly, the only changes I'm looking at making are Fraser>Martial and King>Pukki

  8. MagnetBPS
    • 8 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    Rate my WC

    Pope(Button)
    AWB Digne Laporte(Lund, Dunk)
    KDB Mane Son Sterling Cantwell
    Pukki Barnes (Greenwood)

    ITB 0.1

  9. ZakyJ
    • 6 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    I have KdB and Kane but no Sterling.

    how about Perez, Salah & Auba > Sterling, Mane, Deulofeu (-4)

    Rational:
    I get Sterling who plays further forward and gets midfield points compared to Auba
    Mane and Salah look roughly the same PPG
    Deulofeu weaker team and doesnt get extra midfield points but looked good this week and is playing as a forward while Perez is not OOP as we thought he would

  10. Maddamotha
    • 5 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    Are there any strikers under 6m worth having? Wanna get KDB and need to to downgrade Wilson.

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Under 6m going to give you very little attacking returns.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        Greenwood as "good" as any other 🙁

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          2 years, 5 months ago

          Yes for the bench

    2. MagnetBPS
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      all of them are 1 or 2 pointers

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

      McGoldrick is on my radar. Fixtures are meh, however 0.71 xG per 90 (Pukki is 0.75).

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        did you watch him vs cpal? very poor.

        1. AuFeld
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 years, 5 months ago

          I did not. I inquired about an eye test before with no responses. Thanks for the heads up.

          1. Christina.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 years, 5 months ago

            hes crap. why Sharp don't start I have no idea.

              The championship Nikolas Anelka

            2. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              2 years, 5 months ago

              I'd imagine McGoldrick's inclusion is more to do with the overall team play than scoring goals, he's always been a bang average finisher but a good grafter.

              Aufeld, I would expect him to underperform his xG by a good distance over the season.

  11. FPL ElasticO
    • 7 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    I have 2 LIV defenders want to get rid one.... Who should it be??

    A. VVD
    B. Robbo

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Get rid for whom?

      1. FPL ElasticO
        • 7 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        For 4.5 - 5.0 defender??
        may be

        AWB

        Sheffield Utd defenders

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          2 years, 5 months ago

          Ok so if you get Dunk, what you going to do with the 2.5m? AWB you will only have 1.5m.

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

    SSK owners, who are you going for this week as captain?

    1. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      If I had them all Sterling would be my choice.

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

      Kane if I bring him in, if not Sterling

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

      Currently its 51% Sterling 49% Kane, its that close.

    4. Dynamic Duos
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Kane

    5. Regin
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Am I the only one captaining Mane?

        Probably not but I don't think he will be very popular as a pick. It could work out very well for you!

      K

  13. aarrgghh
    • 5 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    Which way to go?
    A Auba to Kane
    B Auba & Dendo to Jota &Son (-4)
    C Save and play Auba and see how Kane and Son plays together

  14. paganwinter

    When does the watchlist get updated? Says the last time it was updated was August 12

    Current Team

    Pope, Heaton
    Robertson, VVD, Digne, Lundstram, Rico
    Salah, Sterling, Sigurdsson, Barkley, Perez
    King, Jota, Greenwood

    2 FTs and 1m in the bank so I am thinking this,
    Digne ---> Otamendi
    Barkley ---> Martial

    But I did so poorly last season, I don't trust myself anymore. I want the watchlist

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Digne to Otamendi is a horrible move.

      1. paganwinter
        • 11 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        If I do Digne to Laporte, then that leaves me 6.5m after taking out Barkley. I don't see any good mids in that price range.

        I could also do Rico ---> Laporte and Barkley ---> Hayden

        Or save 1 FT and just take out Barkley ---> Milivojevic

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 3 Years
          2 years, 5 months ago

          Don't get rid of Digne! I wish I had him. I'd be addressing Barkley and King ahead of anything else

          1. paganwinter
            • 11 Years
            2 years, 5 months ago

            Sounds good. Thanks. Barkley dropping price so wanted to get rid but thought I will use my 2 transfers to make better moves

        2. Regin
          • 4 Years
          2 years, 5 months ago

          why get rid of digne? why not get rid of robbo or vvd if u r so desperate?

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

          Don't sell Digne. There's also quite a few appealing mids in that price range like Lanzini, Trossard, Mount and Ceballos

  15. La Roja
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    Praying for a Jota no show or warm up injury somehow.

    That 14 pointer from Lundstram hurts. Especially when I put him on bench literally a minute before for Zinchenko 🙁

    1. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Before deadline I meant lol

    2. paganwinter
      • 11 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Got lucky with Barkley not playing. 14 points coming in

    3. Would Ed Woodward
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      The one time we wish Zinch was rotated out, I blame Pep.

      1. La Roja
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        I blame myself 😀

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 3 Years
          2 years, 5 months ago

          lol, being reasonable is not allowed.

    4. Arteta

      1st sub for you too?

      1. La Roja

        Yeah

  16. Bubz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

    Jota brace tonight would be delightful. With Martial firing back with a hat trick to win the game

    1. Hy liverpool
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      0-0 then.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        He can assist Jota's goals Doosra, no problem!

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          As long as Greenwood came on at 29 minutes to provide the 3 assists for Martial and max baps.

          1. Ⓙⓐⓡⓥⓘⓢⓗ CMIUK
            • 7 Years
            2 years, 5 months ago

            Greenwood would need about 2900 minutes to get 3 assists - looks totally lost whenever he is thrown on. Being totally mismanaged by Gollum - should be on loan at a Championship club.

            1. Would Ed Woodward
              • 3 Years

      Yes that would be perfect

  17. lvgrvp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    Which duo is better:

    A) Salah + Kante

    B) Mané + Mount

    1. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      I like B).

      1. lvgrvp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        Would you say Mount is nailed or would Trossard be a better option in that 6.0 bracket?

  18. danlynch13
    • 6 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    A) Salah-Digne-Dunk/Soyuncu(Rotating)
    B) Mane-VVD-AWB

    1. Regin
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      b

  19. Eytexi
    • 3 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    A) Salah, Siggy (& Greenwood).
    B) Kane, KDB (& Hayden) for -4.

    Is B worth the risk of no Pool attack?

  20. HamezMace
    • 7 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    Any advice on how best to use my 2FTs?

    Pope - Button
    TAA - Digne - Montoya - Soyuncu - Lundstram
    Salah - KdB - Perez - Robinson - Dendoncker
    Kane - Lacazette - King

    I was debating Rashford and Mount in for Lacazette and Robinson.

  21. yakirh
    • 5 Years

    Is Cathcart a decent sub in case Digne not fit for Friday?

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Not really. Watford are crap.

    2. SADIO SANÉ
      • 6 Years

      yeah

  22. Kimmich
    • 5 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    Just looking for some advice on this team, overkill in midfield?

    Pope
    Zinch - Mina - Wan Bissaka (Dunk - Lundstram)
    Mane - Sterling - KdB - Son - Mount
    Pukki - Jota/Barnes (Wickham)

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      No such thing as overkill. It has plenty of potential.

      1. Kimmich
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        For sure just don’t know if I fancy going with 2 cheap strikers. Kane looks a great captain choice this week.

        1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 years, 5 months ago

          Yeah Kane will be in my team, but there are plenty of ways to skin a cat.

    2. yakirh
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Excellent WC team.

      1. Kimmich
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        Thank you! Would definitely be relying on that midfield to deliver but they’re all proven -Mount.

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

      Anw will son start for sure for gw3?

    4. Sndeshdhkl

      similar to mine...i have vvd n cebalos for mount n mina

    5. Pipermaru
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      I'm on Martial+Firmino for yours Mane+Jota/Barnes, rest of front 8 the same.

  23. FOO FIGHTER
    • 2 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    What some do not understand is that TAA and Robbo are basically like midfielders in your defence.

    If you are going to ditch both, who do you replace them with in your defence for all those assists they got last season. Yes this is a new season but just a thought.

    1. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Liverpool have a very high xGA. Ditch imo.

      1. Colonel Shoe 肝池
        • 10 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        Low dataset to make a sensible judgement yet

        1. AuFeld
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 years, 5 months ago

          Twice as much as we had last week. Adrian isn't helping their cause.

    2. Ⓙⓐⓡⓥⓘⓢⓗ CMIUK
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      They blanked this weekend and people always want to upgrade their attack. The expensive defence was never going to last for most. Patience may well reap rewards.

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        I'd have two players if I got rid of everyone that blanked last weekend.

        1. Ⓙⓐⓡⓥⓘⓢⓗ CMIUK
          • 7 Years
          2 years, 5 months ago

          One more than me! 🙁

        2. Regin
          • 4 Years
          2 years, 5 months ago

          yo woodward. u didnt ask me how many points with my WC team I had pukki, mane, lundstram & got 65 pts with jota, rash to go. Jumped from 2.2m to 200k.

          1. Would Ed Woodward
            • 3 Years
            2 years, 5 months ago

            Well done mate! Hopefully you don't need it in December.

      2. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        Pretty much every player will blank so not sure what your point is.

        If you have 14m sitting in your defence providing attacking returns, only when things have gone tits up you have money to play with.

        It has only been 2 GW's so no use for Knee-jerk as Robbo and Trent could both deliver against a poor Arsenal defence.

        1. Ⓙⓐⓡⓥⓘⓢⓗ CMIUK
          • 7 Years
          2 years, 5 months ago

          I'm agreeing with you (I think!) so less of the nark 😛

    3. SADIO SANÉ
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      one of them will haul pretty soon I reckon

    4. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      If Adrian hadn't thrown away the CS people wouldn't be downgrading their Liverpool defenders. Robertson was also very close to scoring.

      1. Nailed Jesus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        Remember Karius and how Liverpool improved massively with Allison?

  24. Colonel Shoe 肝池
    • 10 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    Barkley to ceballos?
    Camarasa to mount?

    1. Wild Rover
      • 11 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      2 Free transfers? I have both Ceballos and Mount in my wc team, they look like massive FPL bargains

      1. Colonel Shoe 肝池
        • 10 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        2 frees.....worried about Barkley and cam not getting time
        Csntwell an option?

        1. Wild Rover
          • 11 Years
          2 years, 5 months ago

          He is but it may be short term so if you can get both of Mount and Ceballos I'd do that

          1. Colonel Shoe 肝池
            • 10 Years
            2 years, 5 months ago

    2. The Suspended One

      I hate him as a player but frank is gonna rotate the mf

  25. bigbudgie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    Best way to get Kane?

    A) robbo > lundstrum, Wilson> Kane
    B) Salah > KDB, Wilson > Kane

  26. FPL ElasticO
    • 7 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    Need to get Kane from GWk3 onward, which player should I transfer out??

    A. Wilson & Robbo also got TAA
    B. Wilson & TAA
    C. Wilson & Perez for 4.5 mid (although this will leave me with two 4.5 mids)

  27. Wag the Drog
    • 10 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    So you can no longer see your opponents transfer history or if their wildcard is active (i thought you could do that)?

    1. Colonel Shoe 肝池
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      Aye, but I'm no longer obsessed with the moves of my rivals, usually best to make your decisions based on your own team

    2. Wild Rover
      • 11 Years
      2 years, 5 months ago

      You never could see if their wc was active

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 6 Years
        2 years, 5 months ago

        price changes + zero transfers?

        1. SADIO SANÉ
          • 6 Years
          2 years, 5 months ago

          I would like to just add that checking rivals transfers as soon as GW3 is pretty desperate imo

          1. Pipermaru
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 years, 5 months ago

            Well, there are weekly/monthly prizes in many ML, not everybody plays for highest OR, just saying...

  28. Dr. Rog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    A) mane + rashford + (dendonk 1st)
    B) salah + martial + (greenwood 3rd)

    lund/kelly the other subs

  29. Ocrana
    • 12 Years
    2 years, 5 months ago

    What about doing Salah + Wilson for Kane + Pogba for next GW only? Really afraid of Newcastle getting destroyed.

    Got Sterling, KDB and Martial and could do Kane to Firmino GW4 and get back to Salah GW5 right in time to destroy Newcastle again.

    1. Pilgrim62
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      I think it is nice aggressive move

    Chances of Moura playing more than 30mins this weekend?

    1. SADIO SANÉ
