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.

As this article uses data from the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area, only those who have signed up for the 2019/20 season can access it in full.

Have Pukki’s underlying statistics been good?

    I don't understand understand this Son love and getting him in without him kicking a ball this season and spurs not set on their formation. He scored 1 goal in the last 13 games last season and surely KDB and Martial warrant investment before Son even enters our thoughts.

      I concur.

      Huge differential. Easy switch to KDB or martial, amazing fixture and will be raring to score in first game of season imo.

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Trouble I have is already have Martial and KDB and not too sure whether he will outperform either.

    4. Stef rocks
      • 2 Years

      He is bad when he is fatigued, but he is fresh now and I can bet with anyone he will have double digit score in GW3

    5. CostaCoffee

      People like a differential, what fun is the game if everyone has the same players

      1. FOO FIGHTER
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Kane not going to be the same without Erikson.

        selective memories of his awesome run last season

      3. jsd202
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Agreed, KDB has been on fire so far this season and Man City have a good run ahead. No way would I choose Son over KDB.

      4. Gregor

        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Great fixture and low ownership though innit.

        Actually agree though, I think it’s one to watch though I guess that’s a bit dullard!

      5. Differential (c)
        • 4 Years

        I got him in almost straight after he cam back training with the team after the Asian Games. Got his Everton haul in the bag and hit 11k. Good times.

      6. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        its proving hard to second guess Poch, he could even start Lamela and Moura this gw with Son coming in off the bench.

        1. Kopkloppers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          This

      7. DAZZ
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        He might not start. Lamela was Spurs MOM, after 2 good results he might be on the bench

      8. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        I understand it but not really agree with it.
        Class act due back and was never injured.
        Playing Newcastle and saves Kane money.

        Probably a sub first game.

      9. Respect My Authoritah
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Yeah, good points. I think we could see Lamela becoming more and more important to the side this season.

      10. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Trust me, Poch loves his Son more than Moura.

        He'll start.

        1. dbeck
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          What about Lamela? will he start?

          1. gergin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            Lamela is about Eriksen, not Son.

          2. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…
            • 2 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            I'm not sure.

      11. mookie
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        40%+ own a 12,5m player that has 7 goals and 4 assists in his last 17 PL games. His goal involvement is less than 33% during this period. They even captain him most weeks.
        People do weird sh!t, no need to understand everyone's thought process.

        1. FOO FIGHTER
            9 months, 7 days ago

            Guess that is Salah? Please remind me who the highest points scorer has been over the last 2 seasons?

        2. avfc82

          • 10 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          I've said this a few times, but Son's lack of returns towards the end of last season coincided with a general dip in Spurs form. If you back them to do well, he'll be involved. I'm also coming round to the idea of him starting. One win and one draw to start the season sounds good on paper, but Poch will know performances haven't been all that.

      12. mikeycee93
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        A) Kane & Martial
        or
        B) Son & Rash

        Who scores more?

        1. Zygaenid - BRAZIL NUTS
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          The forwards

        2. Differential (c)
          • 4 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Very even, but I think B the better investment $$$-wise.

        3. Lingard’s Shin Guards
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 7 days ago

          A

        4. dbeck
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          A by a mile

        5. Bragazeti
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Close, but I'd say A

      13. Lukakwho
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Could anyone suggest transfers? Want to bring in Rashy but can’t see an easy sacrifice with 0 ITB and 2FT.

        Ryan, Button

        Digne, Zinch, TAA, Robbo, Rico

        Salah, Sterling, Martial, Perez, Dendon

        Wilson, Jota Greenwood

        1. mikeycee93
          • 4 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Perez to cebellos or mcginn and wilson to Rash

          OR Salah to mane and wilson to rash

          1. mikeycee93
            • 4 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            Actually get rid of one of Robbo or AWB to Mina or AWB or Emerson and upgrade wilson

      14. Shelton91
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Which one would you start out of Dendoncker, Lundy or Greenwood this week?

        1. Differential (c)
          • 4 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Dendo, probably.

        2. Zygaenid - BRAZIL NUTS
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Dend

        3. Super Saints
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Donkey

        4. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Dendo

      15. Ginola14
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Not been injured so will be match fit straight away, he's a huge upgrade on lamela or moura, can be explosive and score a brace out of nowhere, newc just got tonked by Norwich, and is one of the best attacking mids in the league, plus low ownership as previously mentioned

        1. Ginola14
          • 8 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Fail

        2. Rhinos
          • 6 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          you don't understand match fitness do you

          1. Ginola14
            • 8 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            You think he's been sun lounging in training, he's missed 2 games.....

      16. Flying Dutchman
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Best midfielder in 6.1 price range?

        1. Super Saints
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Mount or Trossard

      17. Stu3y
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Rashford or Martial?

        1. Super Saints
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Martial

        2. Ginola14
          • 8 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Rash more expensive but should be on pens

        3. el polako
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          One of them is cheaper, gets points for CS and extra point for each goal.
          Also plays as nr.9

          Go with Rashford

        4. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Rash all day.

      18. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        So for anyone that didn’t see it earlier on in the day, this my W/C team...

        Pope
        AWB / VVD / KWP
        Sterling / KDB / Martial / Ceballos
        Firmino / Kane(c) / Pukki

        Button / Dendonk / Lundstram / Kelly

        Had exact money for this.

        A little different to most W/Cs I’ve seen, but I’d like to think that there’s a player at every price to get on any emerging band wagons, should I wish to do so...

        1. Mee Pukki-Pukki Long Teemu:…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Pretty template outside the Firmino pick. Wouldn’t pick him myself, but other than that it looks good.

          Might pick Shaw over AWB and some say Cantwell is a better 4.5 than Dendoncker.

          1. Galza
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            Never been a massive fan of Shaw tbh.
            Cantwell is 4.6 now unfortunately.
            Might get Douglas Luiz though.
            Ty

            1. Mee Pukki-Pukki Long Teemu:…
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              9 months, 7 days ago

              Not a big fan of Shaw myself. But he did get 11 baps, 1g and 5 assists in 2600 minutes last year compared to AWB 18 baps, 0g and 3 assists in 3100 minutes.
              Of course AWB theoretically plays for a better team, I’m just not sure he will match Shaw if both stay fit.
              GL !

              1. Galza

                • 2 Years
                9 months, 7 days ago

                I think they’ll be much the much. I like what I’ve seen from AWB so far though...

        1. Super Saints

            Didn’t listen yet, but I don’t think Firmino has been a good FPL pick for a while now ...?

            1. Berbinho's Forehead
              • 9 Years
              9 months, 7 days ago

              He's good in comparison to other strikers in his price point, he just isn't as popular because there's 3 better Liverpool options.

              1. Pompel
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                9 months, 7 days ago

                Well there might room for him now, as defence double-up seems faltering.

          2. COK3Y5MURF - Unbelievable J…
            • 3 Years

            Tbf, he was in the FPL Team of the Season 2017/18. Last season was the first season he wasn't a good pick. Everyone writing him off too early.

            He is frustrating to own in FPL but great player otherwise.

            He's not rubbish - just the (at best) 6th best Liverpool FPL assist, so isn't near anyone's team.

            I’m having a go on my w/c.
            Was him and KDB or Salah and some rubbish up front.
            Easy switch back if it doesn’t pay off.
            I think he could be good for some returns.

            Yeah there’s obviously a misunderstanding, Kante is a woeful FPL asset but arguably top 2/3 midfielders in the premier league, i firmly believe that Firmino’s Liverpools best player. But his consistent 160-180 point returns are eclipsed by Mane and Salah, returning 200+.

            firmino IS rubbish, same bilva, great footballer poor fpl asset

            There are some very good players that are bad FPL picks and exactly the opposite - if you are a football lover and you pkay and watch football regularly you will know what i am talking about. Thus said - Firmino is a great fotballer but there are better FPL wise players for that price tag.
            Btw last time when i have him was 3 seasons ago when he was classified as a midfielder (he was a real deal back then). Since then Salah/Mane and Defence are outscoring him

          Correct bench?

          Ederson
          VVD Digne AWB Montoya
          Salah Sterling Perez Mount Dendonker
          Kane(c)
          Button Lundstram King Greenwood

              Not as stressful as desperately needing one when there is none available.
              Things can get really messy then.

            Quick noob question on wildcard.

            I made a few transfers (-12) last night and didn’t hit play wildcard. If i make some more now and press play wildcard will remove the hit?

            Also, is -12 enough to play a wildcard?

            1. britzdubb
              • 3 Years
              9 months, 7 days ago

              yes , if you hit wildcard you're free of hits

              Yes and Yes

            3. Rhinos
              • 6 Years
              9 months, 7 days ago

              press wc and those minus points will disappear quicker than Benteke's career. I'd rather wc than -12

              Yes it will remove hits.
              -12maybe yes

                Suppose he's good enough to play with one leg.

                aguero came in for 21 minutes against west ham,sterling`s turn maybe

                all i`m saying is nothing`s certain with Pep

              No chance after they dropped 2 points against Spurs.

              Sterling is absolutely secured as starter at least until GW5 when CL starts . why Pep will bench his best player - he might be mad but definitely not stupid

              Heaton - but seriously considering selling him and having Pope locked in.
              Cant do with all this pick the right GK malarkey each week.

                Dunno if you were the same as me but I just wanted a playing 4.5 keeper in case Pope's injury(ies) cropped up again... seems to be OK to just stick him in every week though.

              Edging towards Pope but it's more or less a coin flip. Think both will concede so I want another 6+ saves from the Pontiff.

            When do flags get removed, is it just at official press conference mention or do they ever update earlier? And remind me what happens to price rise/fall percentages, are they reset? Asking re digne/joelinton
