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?

    Have done Wilson > Pukki

    Should I pull trigger for -4?:
    VVD & Siggy > Walker & KDB

    1. Artemis Titans
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Ahhh go An.

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      i d keep siggy another week.

    3. captainjilflex
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      No way I’d take a -4 to sell either

    4. Kiwi Don
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      What about just downgrading Siggy to Martial?

    5. RIDZ
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      no if you have Sterling

  2. Artemis Titans
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    RMT please. Giving Vardy time.

    Ryan (Pope)
    AWB, Digne, Pieters (Lundstram,Kelly)
    KDB, Mané, Son, Martial (Cantwell)
    Vardy, Pukki, Rashford

    Scared not having Sterling, but KDB will be the man!
    Can always tinker to get more city later.

    Cheers. Any changes? Although I'm pretty sure I'm happy. Maybe..

    1. Dr. Mantis Toboggan

      Is this a wildcard? If not how many FTs do you have?

      1. Artemis Titans
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Wc

        1. Artemis Titans
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          0.2 itb

        2. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Wouldn't wildcard without Sterling. KDB is great value but that won't stop Sterling from battering your rank.

          Don't think you'll get much extra out of rotating GKs.

          Vardy has had 1 shot in 180 minutes, for 8.9 million on a wildcard I don't think I'd stand by him.

          1. Artemis Titans
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 25 days ago

            Ill wait a few more weeks on Vardy. Sterling would dismantle my team. Hoping the rest between them will cushion his points.

    2. RIDZ
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      good team, so balance

      1. Artemis Titans
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Ta

    3. Hint
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Decent but no Kane or Sterling would concern me. Need at least one of them IMO.

      1. Artemis Titans
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Son as Cover. Got rid of Eriksen. Cant have everything.

  3. ADucksBehind
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Got the bench right here?

    Heaton

    TAA Digne Zinchenko

    Salah Sterling Perez Cabellos

    Kane Pukki Ings

    Lundstram Dendonk Rico

    1. Brooksy86
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Yeah

    2. Brooksy86
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Just listen for news on Digne.

    3. captainjilflex
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      I’d actually start Lundstram over Perez. Then if Digne doesn’t play you could have Dendoncker coming in. Perez has offered nothing.

    4. iL PiStOlErO
      2 months, 25 days ago

      I would maybe play Dendoncker insted of Ceballos this GW

  4. milanista10
    • 7 Years

    Who to start this GW:
    A) Cantwell (alongside Pukki)

    Glad to see how well it's working out for Sheff Wed not having Steve Bruce.

  6. Kiwi Don

    A) Mina, Ceballos and Rashford

    Or

    Good day
    Any one interested at "SON" this GW ??
    Does anyone Knows if he would play this GW or not ?

    1. Artemis Titans
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      I gambled

      1. KIRA
        2 months, 25 days ago

        me too 🙂

      2. gergin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        I do not agree it is a gamble.

    2. Kiwi Don
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Really interested but just worried about the amount of options in Spurs midfield. Eriksen, Alli, Lamela, Moura, Son etc

      Great differential if he plays and scores big. Risky but potentially massive reward and next week his value would rise heaps.

      1. Helia
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        The other options in spurs midfield are not to worry about. That would kinda be like worrying about sterling in a man city squad.

        1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Pep will have something to say about sterling being nailed soon

          1. Helia
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 25 days ago

            Exactly what I mean. Think it’s the same kind of thing. Sterling will be rested out of the blue, but he is the #1 man is my point.

      2. KIRA
        2 months, 25 days ago

        agreed , that is how im thinking

    3. Helia
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      On WC... have him in atm. Trying to decide between him and Firmino or mane and Barnes or something. A different option could be Kane and Ceballos.

      I hope he plays.

    4. Pickle juice
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Not sure if he will start and rotation risk....otherwise i would have him in

  8. lugalooch
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Trying to fit mane into my team with no Pool attack, need a 6.3m or less striker to make it work

    Gomes, B.Silva, Wilson > Lundtsrum, Mane, ???

    A) Chicharito
    B) Ings
    C) Other.. please let me know suggestions

    Thanks

    1. Offside
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Welbeck or Maupay?

  9. LangerznMash
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    How come FPLstatistics has zero data (0 towards target) on Son when he has been transferred in by 38k so far?

    1. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Price is locked

    2. GreenWindmill
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      He's just had a red flag removed. Assuming price change rules haven't changed (because what else can we do) his price is frozen for a while. Can't remember how long for but I'm sure someone else can...

    3. LangerznMash
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      or is he price locked due to suspension?

      1. LangerznMash

    5. Kiwi Don
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      I wonder how many are on a wildcard??

  10. Offside
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Abraham to Jota or Barners or Deeney?

    Welbeck?

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Barnes

      1. Offside
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Got a feeling Jota is coming but Barnes more on fire and in couple of games he has some good fixtures.

        But Deeney v West Ham looks good. Due a goal. Then they was Newcastle away.

        Burnley are no fun to play. Could see Barnes scoring again.

        1. iL PiStOlErO
          2 months, 25 days ago

          This is why I think Barnes is the one.

    2. RIDZ
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Barnes for form and fixtures

  11. Nunoooooooooo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Torn between:

    A) KDB & Rashford (got Sterling)
    B) Martial & Kane

    Thoughts guys??

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      2 months, 25 days ago

      B, more options

    2. Offside
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Kane v Newcastle looks good for a hatrick.

      But DeBrun in for Salah is the future.

  12. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    I could be playing both Hanley and Dendoncker if Digne is out and I decide to bench Fraser! Two pretty weak looking spots in my XI this GW but that's the way she blows!

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      i d play fraser ahead of any of these 2

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Hanley would autosub for Digne! Think Dendoncker is as good as Fraser this week tbh.

    2. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Any way to get Fraser out?

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        ...for a hit but likely not worth it, Lanzini would be the one that I'd opt for if I did take the hit!

        1. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Hmm yeah that's probably not worth it. May just have to take it on the chin

          1. De Gea is GOAT
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 25 days ago

            Hey Jia what are your thoughts on Moura this GW? How many minutes will he play? I would get Fraser out for a hit.

            1. jia you jia you
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 25 days ago

              Impossible to tell tbh, Moura could start or be on the bench, Son could start or be on the bench also imo. Think Dendoncker +4pts is better that buying a mid for a hit.

  13. Pickle juice
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    On a WC .....which combo :

    (A) martial and rashford
    (B) son and Jota

      Cheers A it is

  14. Offside
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Salah to DeBrun, then upgrade Abraham to Firmino?

    Worth 4pt hit or stick with Salah and get Barnes or Jota?

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Stick and get Barnes

  15. Trovsmash
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Which 4.5 GK do you like on a WC lads?

    1. RichRover

      2 months, 25 days ago

      Ryan

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Pope

    3. JohnBlack
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Heaton

    4. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Pope Nicholas VI

  16. gergin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Need to play 2 out of these 5 :

    A) Perez (shu);
    B) King (MCI);
    C) Cantwell (CHE);
    D) Origi (ARS);
    E) Balbuena (wat)

    0 ITB, 0 FT, so any suggestion for -4 welcomed also.

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Perez, King

    2. The Cherry Picker
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Perez and Cantwell probably

  17. quayle99
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Bench Two

    Trent - VVD - Dunk - Diop - Lundstram
    Neves - Sterling - Salah - Perez - Mount

    (Vardy + Jota up top)

    1. The Cherry Picker
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Diop + Neves

  18. Whats the Mata?
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Which City defensive option would you go for from these 2?

    Walker or Zinchenko?

    1. The Cherry Picker
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Prefer Zinc +0.5 while he’s starting

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Laporte for security of starts, but if you prefer wingbacks then Zinc for few more GW, Wlaker has also Cancelo as a threat

  19. The Cherry Picker
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Alright Everyone.

    Would you be so kind as to cast an eye over this WC team.

    Pope
    Dunk Zinc AWB Lund
    Mané KDB Sterling Martial
    Kane Pukki

    Button Soyuncu Cantwell Wickham

    0.0 itb.

    Any changes needed?

    1. Trovsmash
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Essentially my WC team.

      Gone Mina over Zinch, only because at some point Zinch becomes a rotation fear.

    2. The Cherry Picker
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      So cross that bridge when it happens. No point losing out on Man City Def coverage for the ‘what if’

      1. Trovsmash
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Totally get that, personal preference obviously 🙂

    3. Stimps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Defence looks weak.. Personally I would downgrade Martial to upgrade defence. Or us Son instead of Kane and upgrade defence

  20. FRENCH EDDY
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Heaton
    VVD Digne Montoya Lundstram
    Salah Sterling Martial Siggy
    Kane King

    4.0 Kelly Dendonker Greenwood

    1. King or Dendonker this week?

    2. Save free transfer or make a change?

  21. Helia
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    I have martial and rashford. Can’t decide between them so thinking may aswell go with both.

    If they were priced the same it would be without a doubt rashford for me, but hard to pick the way it is. Feels like a 50/50 for me. Agree?

    1. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Yeah there's very little in at those prices. I'd expect Rashford to be more consistent over the season but Martial seems to score well in little 5ish game streaks.

      At present, midfielder classification + playing no. 9 + 1m makes it Martial for me, but I guess it depends on team structure/alternatives in their respective positions.

  22. DAZZ
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Is Perez + TAA/Robbo > Martial + 6.7M> defender for a -4 too hasty? I have been a supporter for Perez after two tough fixtures. But a lot of talk on here that he could be dropped? I dont know how reliable the talk is. But i could go VVD or Laporte. It’s a tough one

    1. DAZZ
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      FWIW my team:

      Pope Button
      TAA Robbo Montoya Digne Lundstram
      Sterling KDB Salah Perez Dendoncker
      Adams Pukki Greenwood

    2. Helia
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      I’d just hold... not worth a hit I think.... it could be, but maybe give Pérez a shot in an easier fixture? One of the liv defenders to AWB or Laporte could be a good move.

  23. TonyTony
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Who would you transfer out this week

    A. Redmond
    B. Perez

    Redmond dropped to 6.4 and Perez likely to drop, will be bringing in Mane for a -4

  24. BobbyV
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    On a wildcard:

    A. Mane & Digne / Walker / Laporte
    B. Salah & AWB

  25. Albrightondknight
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 25 days ago

    Best 6 mil or lower defender for this defence
    .Looking at Walker or Zinch as I don't have any City defenders

    Heaton

    VVD Digne KWP Lundstram
    XXXXX

    1. BobbyV
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      AWB...stats and fixtures are good

      1. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

    hey guys, thinking of downgrading Robbo to get Martial for Barkley.. what you reckon? 2FT

    Heaton Button
    VVD Robbo Rico Zouma AWB
    Sterling Salah Barkley Perez Dedeoncker
    Auba King Greenwood

    Barkley to Martial and Robbo to 5.2 Defender.. Or do I take a -4 and get rid of Auba as well for Kane?

      Keep Auba
      Maybe Robbo > Dunk, Boly, Lundstram if your keen on Martial

    Wildcard nearing completion:

    Pope
    Digne, AWB, Zinchenko, KWP
    Sterling, Son, KDB, Martial
    Kane, Pukki
    (Button, Lundstram, Cantwell, Wickham)

    Have enough ITB for Pukki > Moise Kean...

      Wait, what happened to "Robbo will score, assist, clean sheet, sell him quickly"?

        Adrian, KDB, Son, Martial... The list goes on... (and Robbo pobably will do all of the above)

        Things change quickly in FPL - get with the program 😉

            Lol as I said, things change quickly in FPL - thanks for scanning my post history, I can tell you're still an adoring fan 😉

            Hows Bilva getting on btw? 😉

      Looks good. Lack of LIV attack but you know the risks

        Tis very risky, but potentially also very rewardy 🙂

      No Liverpool is criminal.

        Are you holding Salah /mane out of fear... Or out of anticipation of points? As I look at their fixtures from now to GW14... I wonder is it the former

        Salah could ruin this in one weekend of course vs arsenal, but I'm taking the chance

        YOLO baby 😉

          Burnley and Newcastle after Arsenal(who they batter usually). Just think no Liverpool is too clever at this stage of the season.

          Of course there’s fear! Would be very stupid not to and it seems you’ve convinced yourself that’s the only reason people hold Liverpool assets. Nonsense.

            Absolute nonsense im afraid, if I've 'convinced myself' of anything its that Salah has 3 plum fixtures in the next 12 weeks lol

            And City & spurs have very good fixtures those weeks as well... So as I said (numerous times) above, it's not nonsense - it's an informed risk - there's a difference 😉
