How good are Pukki’s upcoming fixtures after hat-trick heroics?

Teemu Pukki (£6.8m) has already taken FPL by storm, scoring four goals in his first two Premier League matches.

Fantasy managers are flocking to sign the Norwich forward, with a third price rise of the season occurring overnight.

The hat-trick scored against Newcastle in Gameweek 2 sent the demand for Pukki into overdrive, but his new owners were clearly also impressed with his ability to score even at Anfield in Gameweek 1.

However, there are still some who are a little concerned about Norwich’s upcoming fixtures.

So we’ve analysed the numbers recorded so far this season to test whether or not Pukki is a sensible signing for Gameweek 3.

Have Pukki’s underlying statistics been good?

    Wilson > Rashford for free
    or
    Wilson & Digne > Kane & Kelly for -4

    ???????????????

      Can you fund Kane without losing Digne?

        Not yet until I WC and lose Robbo or TAA

          25 days, 7 hours ago

          How about you lose one of TAA or Robbo now to fund it? Pool’s defensive stats thus far are poor and Arsenal have significant attacking threat.

            • 4 Years
            25 days, 6 hours ago

            I have a feeling they will exploit Arsenal this weekend from those positions

        Digne injury is what tempts me

        1. Limbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          25 days, 8 hours ago

          Can you afford to wait for news? Robbo is £1m more + balance.

      A

      I'm deliberating something pretty similiar myself. On one hand I know that the free transfer is probably the better option. On the other, I can see Kane bagging a hat-trick against Newcastle.

    Thoughts on going without Spurs completely?

    1. Steve Stiffler
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 8 hours ago

      im on that train until i either WC or Salah continues to be terrible

    2. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      25 days, 8 hours ago

      Don't have any (sold Moura)

    3. KingOllie
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 8 hours ago

      no spurs for me

    4. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 8 hours ago

      And how you set up?

      As silly as it may sound unless it's a Free Hit I won't have any Spurs, Chelsea or Arsenal players in my team this season.

    6. FOO FIGHTER
        25 days, 8 hours ago

        No Spurs players in my team.

        Got priced out of plans to get Kane this GW - so will hide behind the sofa

      • pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        Not a problem if you get the captain call right.

        Look at week 1 for a very similar set of fixtures for City Liverpool and Spurs. Arsenal aren't that much likelier in defence than Norwich perhaps, Bournemouth closely parallel WH and I don't see any difference really between Newcastle and Villa defence.

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          25 days, 7 hours ago

          V true I guess. Making me more confident to go without tbh

      • Stoneleigh
        • 8 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        Think the biggest issue is this coming GW - though it's better than having 9.5m invested in Son and him not play (which is the risk I'm taking by the way)

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          25 days, 7 hours ago

          Really tempted to do the same. Kane always a weird one but Son when firing is insane

      • President Giggs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        Ownership of their players isn't very high, so it's not too scary to go without. I wouldn't go near Kane with how deep he plays, but i'm taking a gamble on Son as he's a fantastic differential that could explode this week.

        1. Artemis Titans
          • 4 Years
          25 days, 7 hours ago

          I went Son too. He's had a preseason, he's had a rest, he's not injured... surely he will start. Thinking of armband too. Doubledown.

        2. Annie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          25 days, 6 hours ago

          he wasn't playing deep in the first week...last GW was City. I expect him to play further forward this year.

    7. Chelsea91
        25 days, 8 hours ago

        Ederson
        Lundstrum,Laporte,VVD,Coleman
        Mc Ginn,Sterling,Mane,Perez,Dendonker
        Kane

        Good to go guys for GW3? Set captain on Sterling

        1. Luke Chadwicks Left Peg
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          25 days, 8 hours ago

          How come you don't fancy Kane against Newcastle?

          1. Chelsea91
              25 days, 7 hours ago

              I think sterling will perform against bou and might change to Kane.

          2. Another Hoops
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            25 days, 8 hours ago

            Looks fine. What transfers did you do or is this a wildcard team?

            1. Chelsea91
                25 days, 7 hours ago

                i transfer Salah to Mane mate

            • 7 Years
            25 days, 8 hours ago

            Caught in two minds.

            A) Wilson to Pukki (free)
            B) Robbo & Wilson to Zinchenko & Kane (C) (-4)

            Yay or nay?

            1. Another Hoops
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              25 days, 8 hours ago

              B looks better on paper.

              1. Luke Chadwicks Left Peg
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                25 days, 7 hours ago

                Kane always feels kinda right and kinda wrong.

                1. Another Hoops
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years
                  25 days, 7 hours ago

                  He once won me a Mini-League but I can never trust with captaincy.

          4. MFPL
            • 4 Years
            25 days, 8 hours ago

            Thoughts?

            Pope (Button)
            Zinchenko AWB Dunk (Kelly Lundstram)
            Sterling Mane KDB Mount (Cantwell)
            Kane Pukki Barnes

            1. Luke Chadwicks Left Peg
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              25 days, 8 hours ago

              WC team?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years

              Looks very good.

              • 4 Years
              25 days, 8 hours ago

              Here's my wildcard team at the moment...

              Pope (4.0)

              AWB, Digne, KWP, Montoya (Lundstram)

              Sterling, Mane, KDB, Martial, Mount,

              Kane (Greenwood) (Wickham)

              1. Luke Chadwicks Left Peg
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                25 days, 8 hours ago

                Pretty good - one question. Who're you moving KWP for when he gets dropped?

                1. mikeycee93
                  • 4 Years
                  25 days, 7 hours ago

                  I just commented below.. but Kane > Rashford, Martial > Son, KWP > Mina?

              2. mikeycee93
                • 4 Years
                25 days, 8 hours ago

                Tempted to ditch Kane, do Martial > Son

                Take in Rashford and upgrade KWP to Mina..

              3. Another Hoops
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                25 days, 7 hours ago

                Personally would prefer Son instead of Kane but looks decent pal. Best of luck.

                1. mikeycee93
                  • 4 Years
                  25 days, 7 hours ago

                  Do you think? I think the burning questions comes down to Martial & Kane outscoring Son & Rash.. as i could do the latter and save .5 for upgrading defence

                  1. Another Hoops
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    25 days, 7 hours ago

                    To be honest I don't think you can go wrong with either choice pal.

                2. sovietrockettes
                    25 days, 7 hours ago

                    Prefer Martial+Kane

                • 5 Years
                25 days, 8 hours ago

                Wildcard team - Any thoughts?

                Pope | Button

                Laporte | Digne | KWP | Lundstram | Kelly

                Sterling | KDB | Martial | Mount | Cantwell

                Kane | Rashford | Pukki

                  good...ive same team except mane for kane

                    Hmm not Mane or Salah though. In fact no Liverpool at all. That would be my obvious worry.

                      Liked your Sterling analysis. I’m now wavering with my captaincy option. It’s been on Kane since the weekend...

                        That is what I like about Pukki. He will not be difficult to fix if he does not return with points next 3 to 4 GW's.

                      I love the Maddison pick, he is someone I am working to get in to eventually replace McGinn.

                        Yes, I do feel united might find things harder than expected vs Palace. They need space in behind and feel that we might see a bit of a run of low scoring united games.

                        I want to move Coleman out for Maguire soon but already taken a -4 this week and feel there is priority.

                        Cheers for comments guys

                          Hmmm I'm not sure I agree. Palace were awful against us and I love their fixtures but who knows.

                          Palace are terrible but only conceded 1 goal in 2

                    Thoughts on Aubam, Perez, Wesley to Rashford, Martial, Pukki (-4)

                      I like it and think this would be a very good move. Having said that watching Wesley and Auba go wild this weekend 😉

                        Exactly... Also not sure if a Martial/Rash double up is stupid. Also no spurs and would find it hard to get a premium attacker Or Son/KDB

                    2. FOO FIGHTER
                        25 days, 7 hours ago

                        Would not double up on UTD attack, especially not for a hit.

                      GK Pope
                      DEF AWB, KWP, Mina, Lundstrum
                      MID Salah, KDB, Sterling, Dendonker
                      FWD Kane, Rashford

                      Subs Cantwell, Soyuncu, Wickham

                      No Liverpool defence is what's missing, could do Salah to Mane and then Mina or AWB to VVD. Problem with that is that each week the majority of my defenders will be home or away, the current set up evens that out.

                        Would you not start Adrian for the next 2 and then go Pope?

                      Thinking of going with Walker as my City def coverage on wildcard.

                      Can't afford Laporte as I'm going with TAA over VVD.

                      On wildcard, was without Kane at first but now I’ve seen people saying about how easy the Newcastle game is, They only lost 1-0 to Arsenal are they exaggerating that Newcastle are the whipping boys?

                      Moise Kean - what do we think dudes? Interesting snapshot below

                      Moise Kean introduces himself
                      Subdued in impact thanks to a red card in the opening match, Moise Kean let Evertonians know what they can expect from him this season. Subbed on with just under 20 minutes left to play, the young striker made an immediate impression on the Goodison faithful, running at the winded Watford defense.

                      With a scary blend of skills, speed and strength, Kean sliced his way through the opposition and nearly netted himself two goals. He was certainly unlucky not to get his first goal in blue under his belt, but his performance was very impressive. While Dominic Calvert-Lewin has a fantastic work rate, Kean has that special something that will make him a nightmare for opposing defenses across the league.

                        I'm planning on Wilson > Kean this week. Just waiting for 90 minutes (and had more important 2FT already). I'm a blue so the decision is easy but predict Pukki + Kean + Kane will be very common WC teams at the international break.

                        Sterling is both a safer (City are amazing, virtually guaranteed chances) and more explosive (he's a mid) captain choice than Kane, really can't shake the feeling that Raz is the best c this week but Harry way more exciting and Newcastle are utter toilet. Gonna cling on to the fact that City only won 1-0 at Bournemouth last season.

                          Don't have Kane but would captain Sterling anyway

                            I'm the other way (also don't have Sterling). Think Kane + Son will tear Newcastle a new one. Got 5-0 home win pencilled on the acca.

                              A possibility. Just not sure how Spurs will line up, and little to grumble about with Sterling/Man city so far - plus extra pts potential for goals/cs

                              1. Limbo

                                I'm happy with Sterling (c) being the only choice. It's nice not to have to make one.

                          Both good shouts... Leaving towards sterling due to the KDB factor - he has the best service in world football at the minute

                            there's nothing in the con section of raz c, only reason for kane is the buzz of it working

                          Has to be Kane, if you own him...

                              I’m hoping they both score big. I had Kane pencilled in for this fixture though and I’m sticking to my guns.

                          and they only created one chance in the first half then kdb went off injured

                          City only won 1-0, but the stats tell a different story.

                          City 82% possession, 23 shots to Bournemouth's 0.

                            well yeah im not suggesting bou will nueter them just that it's not a guarantee city will score loads. Let me clutch at those straws

                            Very valid point. Can't imagine it working out like that for Bournemouth again

                              only one chance in the first half. Shot stats are pretty meaningless unless you know the quality of said shots

                              1. avfc82

                                I agree, xG was 1.60, but a more clinical City would have scored more. You'd also expect Bournemouth to be a little more adventurous this time, which will help Sterling and co.

                              They've had tough games against Wolves and Chelsea, not sure why Rodgers would choose to drop him now.

                              Get rid. So many good options out there. Cheaper or mid price.

                                Who is the better option at his price range? Can't find many.

                                  Trossard is a good example. H Wilson. Mount, Cebellos. Or upgrade - Martial being the obvious suitor.

                              Is Otamendi worth a punt with Stones out for min. 10 days? Or is there better def options for below

                                Otamendi is a good punt honestly, has a knack of getting a few goals from set pieces as well.

                                It's very short term. Could pay off if you're planning a WC in a couple of weeks.

                              Thoughts on Robertson, Barkley and Wilson —> Digne Martial and Pukki for a -4?

                              1. ZeBestee
                                • 5 Years
                                25 days, 7 hours ago

                                Is Digne confirmed ok? Good transfers if he is.

                              2. Limbo

                                Do Wilson > Pukki and wait on Digne news? If he's out for a few games (does seem unlikely) but he could fall 0.1 - then you get price rise as he's immediately picked up again.

                              Can see Pep unleashing his new signing this week, Cancelo. At 5.5, he is straight in my team if he can nail a place.

                                Question is, in place of Walker or Zinchenko?

                                1. avfc82

                                  25 days, 7 hours ago

                                  Walker.

                                2. ZeBestee

                                  I think Walker. Pep loves attacking fullbacks complementing the wingers, and Walker isn't very good at that as shown over the last few seasons. I may be wrong though.

                                    I see a lot of rotation going forward between Walker and Cancelo, dependent on opposition.

                                    1. ZeBestee

                                      Right. Tougher matches will mean Walker starts as he is more suited to the PL.

                                Likewise

                                Got AWB in as a placeholder for him. Just hoping that price rises go right to make that swap easy if Cancelo looks settled.

                                Personally think the Brighton match is more likely but looking forward to seeing him.

                                Cancelo signing looks to me like Pep giving himself the option of 5 atb, with Mendy and Cancelo very advanced and maybe Walker as a CB. Makes even more sense with Sane's injury.

                                Agree with AV that there will be rotation, barring injuries I'd imagine we will arrive at a point where only Laporte is reliable.
                                That said, if Pep did regularly roll out a back 5, 5.5 for an attacking City wingback would be amazing

                              City fans thoughts on Cancelo?

                              Surly hes got to get a start soon, but would pep drop walker?

                                Pep would drop Sterling this week if he felt so inclined. So, why not.

                                  looking forward to seeing him play he looks dangerous and for 60m that not a small sum for a defender.

                              Am I right to bench King and Lundstram as I have Ederson and Perez?
