The FPL line-up lessons we learned from Gameweek 2

We again take a look back at the Premier League line-ups from the weekend just gone, analysing the systems and personnel used by the 20 top-flight clubs in Gameweek 2.

Arsenal v Burnley

Having not started any of his summer signings in Gameweek 1, Unai Emery brought in David Luiz and Dani Ceballos into his starting XI for the visit of Burnley. 

Luiz took the place of Calum Chambers at centre-back, while Ceballos effectively replaced the injured Granit Xhaka.

Starting as a number ten, Ceballos interchanged with Joe Willock throughout the game, with Emery saying afterwards:

With him, it’s for us to use his qualities in the best position in our team with our ideas. I spoke with him – before coming here – to play like an eight and a 10. Today he started like a 10, but a lot of times he was changing with Willock into the eight position, where he can feel better on the pitch.

Emery kept faith with a 4-2-3-1 and the only other change to the starting XI saw Alexandre Lacazette return up front, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan making way and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang moving to the right flank.

The half-time introduction of Nicolas Pepe for Reiss Nelson saw Aubameyang switch to the left to accommodate Pepe on the opposite wing.

The Burnley team news was much more straightforward, with Sean Dyche unsurprisingly naming the same starting XI that defeated Southampton on the opening weekend.

Charlie Taylor was on the bench for the first time this season, while Jay Rodriguez replaced Chris Wood for the final half an hour.

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Maitland-Niles, Luiz, Sokratis, Monreal; Ceballos (Torreira 83′), Guendouzi; Nelson (Pepe 45′), Willock, Aubameyang; Lacazette (Kolasinac 71′)

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; Gudmundsson (Lennon 72′), Cork, Westwood, McNeil; Wood (Rodriguez 61′), Barnes.

Aston Villa v Bournemouth

Dean Smith made just the one change from the defeat to Spurs, with Douglas Luiz replacing Conor Hourihane at the base of the midfield.

Villa were again in a 4-1-4-1 (or 4-3-3), with Jack Grealish and John McGinn getting well forward to support the front three.

Jota replaced Anwar El Ghazi late on, with Trezeguet switching flanks.

Eddie Howe ditched the wing-back system and went back to a tried-and-tested 4-4-2, with Chris Mepham the surplus centre-back to make way.

Harry Wilson came in on the opposite flank to Ryan Fraser, with Charlie Daniels replacing Diego Rico at left-back.

Aston Villa XI (4-1-4-1): Heaton; Elmohamady, Engels, Mings, Taylor; Douglas Luiz; Trezeguet (Davis 87′), McGinn, Grealish, El Ghazi (Jota 75′); Wesley.

Bournemouth XI (4-4-2): Ramsdale; Smith, Cook, Ake, Daniels; H. Wilson (Solanke 76′), Billing (Surman 46′), Lerma, Fraser; C. Wilson, King.

Brighton and Hove Albion v West Ham United

Brighton were again in the 3-4-3 formation that Graham Potter rolled out in Gameweek 1, with new signing Leandro Trossard coming in for Jurgen Locadia on the left flank.

New signings Neal Maupay and Aaron Mooy had to make do with substitute appearances, with Maupay replacing Pascal Gross on the right midway through the second half.

Manuel Pellegrini made five changes to the side that were beaten by Manchester City, the most surprising of which saw Angelo Ogbonna replace Fabian Balbuena at the heart of the defence.

Arthur Masuaku came in for Aaron Cresswell at left-back, while injured pair Felipe Anderson and Sebastien Haller were replaced by Robert Snodgrass and Javier Hernandez.

New signing Pablo Fornals made his first start, with Michail Antonio dropping out.

There was much rejigging of tactics from the Chilean during the game, with Snodgrass starting on the right and Fornals drifting in from the left.

The unimpressive Jack Wilshere, playing in between Declan Rice and the front four, was hooked at half-time, with Michail Antonio replacing him.

That change saw Antonio support Hernandez up top in what resembled a 4-4-2, with Fornals switching over to the right, Lanzini move to the left and Snodgrass pushed infield.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (3-4-3): Ryan; Burn, Dunk, Duffy; March, D Stephens, Pröpper, Montoya; Trossard (Mooy 85′), Murray (Andone 74′), Groß (Maupay 67′).

West Ham United XI (4-2-3-1): Fabianski; Masuaku, Ogbonna, Diop, Fredericks; Rice, Wilshere (Antonio 45′); Fornals (Yarmolenko 77′), Lanzini, Snodgrass; Chicharito (Sánchez 83′).

Everton v Watford

Marco Silva’s only change was an enforced one, with Jean-Philippe Gbamin making his first start in place of the suspended Morgan Schneiderlin

Andre Gomes passed a fitness test to start alongside Gbamin in central midfield, with the Toffees again in a 4-2-3-1.

An injury to Lucas Digne saw Mason Holgate brought on at right-back and Seamus Coleman switch flanks to fill in for the departed Frenchman.

Javi Gracia also only made one change from the side that lost at home to Brighton, with Roberto Pereyra coming in for Andre Gray.

Pereyra was in his usual left-wing position as Gerard Deulofeu, who had occupied that role in the first half against the Seagulls, returned up front alongside Troy Deeney.

Danny Welbeck was thrown on midway through the second half for his first minutes in a Watford shirt.

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.

Norwich City v Newcastle United

Daniel Farke’s only change saw Moritz Leitner step in for Kenny McLean in central midfield, with the Scotsman only fit enough for a place on the bench after being a major doubt for this clash with Newcastle.

Todd Cantwell kept his place on the left flank with Onel Hernandez having been ruled out for three months with a knee injury.

Steve Bruce kept the 3-5-2 shape that he used against Arsenal in Gameweek 1 but made two changes to his starting XI, with Emil Krafth replacing Javier Manquillo at right wing-back and Ki Sung-yueng ousting Sean Longstaff in central midfield.

Allan Saint-Maximin missed out with a hamstring problem.

Norwich City XI (4-2-3-1): Krul; Lewis (Byram 90′), Godfrey, Hanley, Aarons; Leitner, Trybull (Tettey 87′); Cantwell, Stiepermann (Vrancic 84′), Buendía; Pukki.

Newcastle United XI (3-5-2): Dúbravka; Dummett, Lascelles, Schär; Ritchie, Ki (S Longstaff 74′), Shelvey, Hayden, Krafth; Joelinton (Muto 67′), Almirón.

Southampton v Liverpool

The exertions of the Super Cup evidently had a bearing on Jurgen Klopp’s team selection at Southampton, with Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Joe Gomez all dropping out after 120-minute run-outs in Istanbul.

Georginio Wijnaldum, Roberto Firmino and Trent Alexander-Arnold – who all started on the bench in that midweek match – returned to the starting XI.

Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah were all in the starting line-up for the first time this season, as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain made his first league start since April 2018.

Ralph Hasenhuttl dropped a forward – namely Danny Ings – and brought in an extra central midfielder in the form of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg as he switched from a 3-4-3 to a 3-5-2 in a bid to stifle their visitors; Hasenhuttl had used this system against the Reds at the back-end of 2018/19.

Maya Yoshida replaced Jack Stephens as the middle centre-half, meanwhile.

With the Saints trailing 1-0 midway through the second half, Oriel Romeu was sacrificed and Ings was thrown on up front as Hasenhuttl briefly reverted to his Gameweek 1 shape.

Summer signing Moussa Djenepo saw his first Premier League minutes as a late substitute.

Southampton XI (3-5-2): Gunn; Bednarek, Yoshida, Vestergaard; Valery, Ward-Prowse, Romeu (Ings 64′), Hojbjerg, Bertrand (Djenepo 77′); Adams (Armstrong 68′), Redmond.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson; Oxlade-Chamberlain (Henderson 89′), Wijnaldum, Milner (Fabinho 74′); Salah (Origi 79′), Firmino, Mane.

Manchester City v Tottenham Hotspur

Pep Guardiola made four changes to the side that beat West Ham 5-0 last time out, with Sergio Aguero replacing Gabriel Jesus up top and Bernardo Silva – rested in Gameweek 1 as a precaution – ousting Riyad Mahrez on the right flank.

Nicolas Otamendi filled in for the injured John Stones at centre-half, with Ilkay Gundogan preferred to David Silva in central midfield.

City were in their usual 4-3-3, with all of Guardiola’s second-half changes like for like.

Mauricio Pochettino made only one alteration to his starting XI – Christian Eriksen in for Lucas Moura – but abandoned the diamond formation in favour of a more regimented 4-4-1-1.

Erik Lamela was the man tasked with supporting Harry Kane in attack, with Eriksen operating on the left flank and Moussa Sissoko on the right.

The introduction of Lucas for Harry Winks saw the Brazilian lead the line alongside Kane and Lamela move to the right wing.

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, Zinchenko; Gundogan, Rodri (D. Silva 78), De Bruyne; Bernardo Silva (Mahrez 80′), Aguero (Gabriel Jesus 65′), Sterling.

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-4-1-1): Lloris; Walker-Peters, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Rose; Sissoko, Winks (Lucas Moura 56′), Ndombele, Eriksen (Skipp 90); Lamela (Lo Celso 85); Kane.

Sheffield United v Crystal Palace

There were no surprises with the line-ups at Bramall Lane, with Chris Wilder sending the same 11 players out in the 3-5-2 system he used at Bournemouth.

In-game injuries to John Fleck and Callum Robinson saw Luke Freeman and Oli McBurnie replace them directly as the Blades kept their shape.

Roy Hodgson’s one alteration to his starting XI saw ‘out of position’ midfielder Wilfried Zaha come in for Andre Ayew up front, while Jeffrey Schlupp made his comeback from injury when replacing Max Meyer on the left midway through the second half.

Palace were again in a 4-4-2.

Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Henderson; Basham, Egan, O’Connell; Baldock, Norwood, Fleck (Freeman 29′), Lundstram, Stevens; McGoldrick (Jagielka 89′), Robinson (McBurnie 56′).

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; Ward, Dann, Kelly, van Aanholt; Townsend (McCarthy 70), McArthur (Wickham 82′), Milivojevic, Meyer (Schlupp 65′); Zaha, Benteke.

Chelsea v Leicester City

The Chelsea starting XI showed only one change from the side that took on Liverpool in midweek, with Mason Mount replacing Mateo Kovacic in midfield.

Pedro and Christian Pulisic flanked Olivier Giroud in the Blues’ attack, with Mount starting the match as a ‘number ten’ in a 4-2-3-1 but gravitating towards the left of midfield as Chelsea occasionally resembled a 4-3-3.

Ben Chilwell missed out with a hip injury, with his place at left-back being taken by Christian Fuchs.

That was Brendan Rodgers’ only change to the side that drew 0-0 with Wolves in Gameweek 1, so Ayoze Perez and James Maddison again supported Jamie Vardy in a 4-3-3.

Wilfred Ndidi was at the base of the midfield three, with Hamza Choudhury and especially Youri Tielemans more advanced.

Dennis Praet replaced Choudhury in the middle of the park in the final 20 minutes.

Chelsea XI (4-2-3-1) Arrizabalaga; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Zouma, Emerson; Jorginho (Kovacic 70′), Kante; Pedro, Mount, Pulisic (Willian 70′), Giroud (Abraham 61′).

Leicester City XI (4-3-3): Schmeichel; Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Fuchs; Choudhury (Praet 73′), Ndidi, Tielemans; Perez (Albrighton 79′), Maddison, Vardy.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Manchester United

Having made nine changes for the second leg of Wolves’ Europa League tie against FC Pyunik, Nuno Espirito Santo reverted to the familiar-looking starting XI and 3-5-2 that drew 0-0 with Leicester.

Illness saw Matt Doherty replaced at wing-back by Adama Traore at half-time.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s only change saw Daniel James replace Andreas Pereira on the right flank.

Anthony Martial again led the line, with Marcus Rashford stationed out wide on the left of a 4-2-3-1.

Wolverhampton Wanderers XI (3-5-2): Patrício; Boly, Coady, Bennett; Jonny, Neves, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Doherty (Traoré 46′); D Jota (Neto 86′), Jiménez (Cutrone 90+1′).

Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Lindelöf, Wan-Bissaka; McTominay, Pogba; Rashford (A Pereira 89′), Lingard (Mata 80′), D James (Greenwood 89′); Martial.

        It’s not a even a line, back line, middle line and king on his own!
        I couldn’t cope with that I’m afraid.

    My fantasy app has a glitch. It says I have 2 FT although I have already used 2 ft this week. Anybody noticing something similar on their apps?

      Yep similar issues for me

    2. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      I don’t use the app, but have heard of this being an issue.
      Would of thought they would of sorted it out by now though.
      Perhaps it’s more serious than we first thought...

        Rest is good though

    2. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Back line is weak; KWP is a risk longer term, no Pool or City is a mistake. Rest looks good.

    3. sovietrockettes
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I like it a lot, however you will have some difficult weeks with your defence (see next GW)

    4. Totally !rre!evant
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Do you really need Kane if you aren't going to captain him against possibly the weakest team in the league?

    5. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 29 days ago

      That’s a really light defence to run with for 16 weeks. Can’t see you not making multiple defender transfers. Also uncertain about a couple of picks.

      How long do you think Brighton defence will look good for? it was wretched last season and Potter doesn’t have the rep as a cs manager. The cs came against a terrible Watford. Funk can of course return in attack so not terrible call.

      Poch loves to rest his wingbacks.

      I’d lose Ceb myself for Digne say over KWP.

    6. But to who Chris Kamara

      Great team not sure about kwp or dunk

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Why triple captain?

    2. Rhodes your boat
      • 3 Years

      Neither wait till later in the season

    3. Peter Ouch

      B

      1. Come on you Kante
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Why would you wait later in the season is it worth doing it then? I’ve got a feeling one of these will haul

    4. Penguin

      1. Come on you Kante

    5. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Wait until the double gameweeks. Part of FPL is being patient and making the right decisions - basically just don’t TC someone in GW3, wait until the players have got into form and have brushed off the rust.

      1. Come on you Kante
        • 1 Year

        Good point I didn’t consider double week games thx

    2. MeatPieSausageRoll
      2 months, 29 days ago

      KWP, KDB, King perhaps?

      I’m in a similar situation myself. Wish I wasn’t .1 short of a UTD defender instead of KWP

    3. But to who Chris Kamara
      • 2 Years

      A maybe

    4. gwitbrock

      • 5 Years

      A but with someone else not Boly, no point wasting the 0.5-1m. Soyuncu/montoya/dunk/lowton/mings

  9. Athletic Nasherbo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    How’s the wildcard team looking folks?

    Ryan
    AWB Mina Dunk
    Salah Sterling KdB Martial Mount
    Rashford Pukki

    Button Lundstram Soyuncu Wickham

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      No Son or Kane may sting a bit

      Equally Digne looks set for FPL greatness

      Salah has three captaincy fixtures in next 12 weeks, but obviously can hattrick against anyone so it’s not really good darts to criticise any team for having him

      Mount - interesting, but there’ll be war if/when he’s benched

      Sterling, KDB, Martial, Rashford all look primed for points

      Prefer Pope to Ryan, especially with Dunk on board

      7/10

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Oh didn’t spot double Brighton defence. I’d hate to have that going forward. The cs was just Watford looking awful. Double any non top 6 defence is dicey at best - I’m not seeing anything about Brighton to make them an exception.

      2. Athletic Nasherbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Thanks.

        Ryan > Pope
        Soyuncu > Kelly
        Mina > Digne

        Sound good?

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Great almost

      Very unconvinced by Mount over Digne and Emerson say from Mina and Dunk. Suspect it’ll feel very second rate defence in a few weeks. I’d want at least one killer premium at the back

  10. Rhodes your boat
    • 3 Years

    Robbo to 4.0 Perez to kdb?

  11. Taking a swing at a wildcard
    Wild Rover
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    People slating wildcarders as knee jerkers, noobs or sheep are way off the mark, many have planned for it and many have done it successfully for years.

        Yep, some people may be in a bunker, some may be on the fairway and some on the green. Saying everyone should be using a putter for their next shot isn't applicable to everyone.

              Berating might be a bit of a strong word tbf, lower that to slating so, which this thread is all about.

      I think it works both ways. You have those who say that wildcarders are xyz and then you have the wildcarders who look down on the rest.

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        If you are implying that I’m looking down at people not playing wc you are a fool. Nobody posts comment slagging off those who are not wildcarding, it’s all one way traffic

        1. Berbinho's Forehead
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          No, I'm not talking about you. There are wildcarders who do it though. But nowhere near as many as the non wildcarders, I agree.

      13 years to be exact. I've never kept it past gw5. Usually go gw 3 or 4.
      Pre gw1 is a lottery. We pick blind with no form to gauge.
      So it's a stab in the dark place holder based on fixtures and history. As soon as I've seen enough to make informed decisions I make my team proper.

      1. No Professionals
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        If it's a lottery, why was the gw1 scoring so high?

        1. The Champ is here
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          What do you mean? The average? High in relation to what?

          1. No Professionals
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            I mean that a lot of people picked strong teams that scored high, so it was hardly a lottery.

            1. The Champ is here
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 29 days ago

              Teams scored high because the most expensive players in the game hauled. It's never going to be a lottery whether or not sterling, Salah and Kane are going to get a lot of big gw scores. That's why they cost so much. Most teams had two of them and captained one of them. It's that simple

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Curiously I haven’t seen a lot of that slating of late, I think most have woken up to the realisation that slating anyone for wildcard usage at any time is usually idiocy of the highest degree

      1. Berbinho's Forehead
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        You can wildcard whenever you want and you never need to justify yourself. I think what annoys some people is when the same WC conundrum is posted about 20 times a day.

      People should really be kind. It's fine if you are not wildcarding. It's fine if someone else is wildcarding. It's fine if someone's just taking -4's, -8's

      They are playing their game, you play yours. You don't need to prove that whatever YOU are following is right and the other person's strategy is wrong.

      If there was a single mantra to succeed in fpl, it would've been so boring. It's this randomness which makes the game fun.

      Play your game. Don't bring anybody else who doesn't follow YOUR strategy down. Help the #FPL community. It's all fun. Banter is good, but it should be good.

      Cheers everyone. And good luck

      I agree that a wildcard this week could be a great move.

      However, I think I'm going to sell Sterling so there's a good chance I would be better off if I'd just left well enough alone 😆

    18. tisza

      My best seasons have been with a late wc.
      My general rule is either need to change 5or more players or there is a nice fixture swing.
      Personally think it's difficult to evaluate things after just 2 GWs unless you've got a load of nonstarters.
      Atm I'm taking a - 4 (poss - 8) to shift some poor punts.

      Very much in the "play your own game" camp. Can't see it being much fun or rewarding if you're playing other people's game for the next 9 months.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Cause or effect though?

        My best seasons were with late WCs , but that was because I was already doing well I didn't need it.

        I tend not to worry too much around price changes, but a well timed early tv can be the best for team value if that's your thing.

        Some years that ends up being more important than others

        1. tisza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Quite right. Late WCs can be governed by how well you're doing.
          Again I'll take hits for medium term planning rather than "under using" a WC.
          Example this year is I'm still not sure/convinced by utd or Arsenal. They've got some games coming up that will give us a better picture of where they are. Strong performances could see 4 or 5 of their assets become valuable. Then could be a case for a WC.

          1. how now brown cow
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            Fully agree. Also there's much more uncertainty this season around top 6 teams lineups, with chelsea settling down and spurs still potentially losing players.

            Last season I got lucky with my start, while this season I have to work for it. I'm hoping missing out on pukki rises and getting a few falls is offset by having a clearer picture.

            I think there will be plenty of bargains when we know who is "nailed".

        ^ attaboy!

        Not judging anyone, and admit I've been fighting the temptation to WC this week myself, based mainly on the desire to make 2 extra transfers. I've resisted for now.

        But, I don't really think history is relevant here. In the past, the international break coincided with the close of the transfer window; hence, the first couple of GWs had a very random ambience about them. Since last year, we have stability in that department, and this year no World Cup or Euro Champ to affect us. So without all the previous variables, we couldn't possibly anticipate (Alisson injury aside), I think we should be seriously asking ourselves why we opted for our original 15-man selection in the first place before hitting the big red button.

    20. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I played very conservatively last year, avoiding hits and saving my wildcard until December. Ended up ruining my team & playing catchup for 3-4 GWs to undo the damage. I'd rather play the WC because there are several changes I want to make (as now) than make several changes just because I have a WC to play.

    21. mazzington☘
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I pretty much always wildcard around this time, even after a good start, and my returns invariably tank in the following weeks haha.

      So this year I'm purposefully avoiding playing my wildcard this week, even though I could quite easily justify it in my own mind and am taking an absolute pasting on price changes. Just fancy playing the game a little differently this year. Fingers crossed!

      I went for it and played my WC (2-5-3)

      Ryan / (Button)
      Digne, Zin, Lundstram, (Kelly, Pieters)
      KDB, Mane, Sterling, Martial, Douglas Luiz
      Kane, Pukki, (Wickham)

      I'm thinking of swapping Ryan > Pope but not sure what to do.

      SOU have played terrible and think Ryan can get a clean sheet. On the other hand, Wolves just played in Italy last night and Pope could also get a clean sheet this week.

      Also, thinking about selling Luiz but first want to see how Aston Villa do the next few weeks, they have some easy fixtures.

      Not sure what do about my defence though.....any thoughts???

    Am on WC and have 2 teams i need to decide between - one is all in on kane in a 4-5-1 the other is more balanced and leaves 1m itb...

    A) 0 itb
    Adrian (button)
    Lowton - digne - zinck - awb
    Mane - kdb - sterling - martial - cebellos
    Kane (green) (wick)

    B) 1.2itb
    Adrian (button)
    Coleman - digne - zinck - awb
    Mane - kdb - sterling - martial - cebellos
    Pukki - Barnes (green)

    I think A is big risk big returns but B is safer and more flexible.

    What do you think?

    1. BEARZINHO

        I am too. The 1m safety net allows a move to most players in 1 transfer.. the kane team is very restrictive and could come unstuck very quickly

    on a WC but need some feedback on this combination :

    A : Laporte, KWP, Kelly KDB, Rashford

    B : Robertson, KWP, Soyoncu, Mane, Ings

    Balanced or all out attack? On a wild card...which one would you go with?

    A)
    Ederson
    Coleman / Taa / Laporte / Awb / (Lundstram)
    Mane / Sterling / Martial / Trossard / (Cantwell)
    Rashford / Pukki / (Wickham)

    B)
    Pope
    Zinch / Awb / Lundstram / Montoya / (Soyuncu)
    Mane / Sterling / Kdb / Martial / (Cantwell)
    Kane / Pukki / (Greenwood)

    1. BEARZINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      I think no pool def will hurt you...

      1. BEARZINHO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 29 days ago

        So the balanced team looks better to me

    2. Wood1
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 29 days ago

      B - I have the exact same team (but maguire instead of zinch due to concerns over zinch rotation. Have spent alot of time trying to get better, and I don't think it's possible. It's actually pretty balanced with the 3 cheaper defenders and cantwell rotating quite well.

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 29 days ago

      a is good but would sacrifice someone to upgrade coleman to digne

    4. But to who Chris Kamara
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      B

    5. Fit of Pique
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I think there's a third way that looks something like this:

      Pope
      Van Dijk / Digne / AWB / Zinchenko (Lundstrom)
      Sterling / Mane / Martial / Trossard (Cantwell)
      Kane / Pukki (Wickham)

      Lindstrom and Cantwell can come in when Zinchenko gets rotated

    Anyone else playing Fantasy Divisions on Fantasybet?

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 29 days ago

      how much are they paying u to ask this

      1. Fork handles
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Entry was a fiver, 3 times cheaper than membership to this site? No agenda. Besides who doesn't put on an acca or two each week.
        I was asking as I wanted to discuss strategies. Each "season" is only 4 weeks long so I was keen to talk differentials - likely to be the only way to win

    2. Sap
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Yes

  19. Annie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Worth trying to get Kane in?
    Pope Button
    AWB TAA Dunk Digne Lundstram
    Salah McGinn Sterling KDB Cantwell
    Rashford Pukki Wickham

    1. BEARZINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      No... i dont think you need him

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 29 days ago

      decent team

    3. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Cant have them all. Brilliant team

    4. Annie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Indeed, can't have them all

    5. But to who Chris Kamara
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Yes

      1. Annie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        ?

  20. Big Hands Barry
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Which do you prefer?
    A) Perez & Siggurdson --> De Bruyne & Cantwell
    B) Perez & Ings --> McGinn & Pukki

    1. Annie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I think KDB based on the next 4 weeks.

      1. Berbinho's Forehead
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        I'm a bit scared of not owning him. He has his groove back.

      2. Big Hands Barry
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Thanks

        1. Annie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          I have all four as you can see above, but KDB could easily outscore the other two, especially as they’ll probably average 3 goals a game

  21. Corgzzzz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Play Lundstram or play King v City ??

    1. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 29 days ago

      King. Penalties

    2. Tibbs
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      same dilemma

      1. Corgzzzz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Morning Tibbs, what did you decide between King and Lund...…...Im still leaning King, but I got it wrong last weekend when I left Lund on the bench and played Perez...………..

    3. The Pope
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      King. Wouldn't want to play either but Bournemouth could get a lucky pen or something. Can't see a Sheff Utd CS and very much doubt Lund will score again

    4. But to who Chris Kamara
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Lundstram

    5. popey
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 28 days ago

      I'm in a similar place, need 2 from Soyoncu, King, Lundstram, and McGinn.

      Currently on McGinn and Soy however could make a case for any combination

  22. Jurgen Flopp
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Thoughts on this WC team

    Adrian
    Zouma Digne Pieters Lundstram Hanley
    Mane Sterling KDB Martial Son
    Pukki Barnes

    Was toying with Kane and Cantwell instead of Son and Barnes but think the latter combined will score more over the season.

    1. Super Silva Haze
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Nice team but way to early to WC for me. It's only been 2 games.

      1. Jurgen Flopp
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Activated on Monday night rush of blood!

        1. Super Silva Haze
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Think one Trent or Robbo would be perfect as their ownership is so high but that midfield is just class.

    2. But to who Chris Kamara
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Good team defence may need some tweaks

  23. Tibbs
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Play 2:

    1) King (MCI)
    2) Lud (LEI)
    3) Dendonker (BUR)
    4) Cathcart (WHU)
    5) Ceballos (liv)

    1. The Pope
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      1,5

    2. Aztec Kamara
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 29 days ago

      1 & 5 agreed

    3. But to who Chris Kamara
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      2 and 5 possibly Cathcart

    4. Sap
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 29 days ago

      3,4

  24. Super Silva Haze
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Any work needed here lads ?

    Pope
    Trent Digne Kwp
    Salah (K)db Sterling Perez Martial
    Jota Barnes

    Button Lundstram Kelly Greenwood.

    Cheers.

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 29 days ago

      bench is ok for now but going forward could cause issues

      1. Super Silva Haze
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Yeah I agree. Although I am quite happy that I have 2 players on the bench who 90 minute players atm.

    2. StoneMountain
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Nice. Similar to mine, see below. I downgraded TAA to bring in KDB. Wanted to keep Vardy.

    3. But to who Chris Kamara
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Maybe get rid of Jota Perez and kwp and maybe Trent

      1. Super Silva Haze
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Yeah my next transfer will be Perez to Mount tbh. will use the extra 0.5 ro upgrade Kwp to a 5.5. But I do have a feeling Kwp could come good. Spurs will settle eventually and find their rhythm.

  25. StoneMountain
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Good to go?

    Pope
    Walker, AWB, Digne, Lund
    Salah, Sterling, KDB, Trossard
    King, Vardy

    (Ryan, Dunk, Dendoncker, Greenwood)

    1. Super Silva Haze
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I would do Vardy to Rashford if I had a free transfer. Or you could wait till after the SU game

      1. StoneMountain
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        See comment above. Lol!

        1. Super Silva Haze
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Lol yeah Vardy could be a great differential this gameweek. But if he blanks and rash scores I would get in Marcus asap. Solid team !!

    2. But to who Chris Kamara
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Get rid of Vardy and maybe king wouldn’t play Lundstram every week

      1. StoneMountain
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Plan is to see how Pukki carries on and may bring him in for King. Happy with Vardy. He’s a season keeper for me.

  26. SoapAFC
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Thoughts on WC team lads?

    Pope

    VVD - Digne - AWB - Lund

    Sterling - Mane - KDB - Mcginn - Cantwell

    Auba - Pukki

    Lund and cantwell rotate..

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      All good. I'd rather have Kane this week.

      1. SoapAFC
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Cheers, I'm a big gooner, had to transfer out pepe which was hard enough for me, not sure I could do auba -> Scum

    2. But to who Chris Kamara
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Wouldn’t have Mcginn or start lundstram or cantwell not sure about Liverpool defence

      1. SoapAFC
        2 months, 29 days ago

        I think mcginn has looked decent imo, also nice run of fixtures, could go digne - > mina, then mcginn to mount/trossard but not convinced

  27. HollywoodXI
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Do we think Son will start this week? I have a Son draft and a Kane draft on WC and I much prefer the Son version.

    1. But to who Chris Kamara
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      No but will soon

    New team worth a -4?

    Current team:

    Robertson, digne, soyun, lundstrum, GUILBERT
    Salah, sterling, PEREZ, Robinson, Dendoncker
    Kane, jota, KING

    New team:

    Pope
    Laporte Digne AWB KWP kelly

    Playing 4 at the back

    1. n-doggg
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Lundstrum over Kelly if in WC

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Kelly is not got great job security with Cahill and Sakho lurking

  30. Dynamic Duos
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Perez dropping is disgusting, go to Mount -4?

    1. n-doggg
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Hold for fixtures

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Perez has been disgusting. Deserves to drop
