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.

    Best defender up to 4.8 to replace Robertson?

    Robertson & Fraser -> ____ & KDB

    Pope/Heaton
    Robertson/VVD/Digne/Zinchenko/Rico
    Salah/Sterling/Fraser/Perez/Dendoncker
    Wilson/Jota/Greenwood

    2 FTs, 0 ITB.

    Will probably look at Wilson and Perez to Pukki and Martial over the next week or two; would anyone recommend Wilson to Pukki for a hit this week?

    Cheers!

        I'll be looking to upgrade Rico at some point, but I have more pressing transfers (it's the kind of move that will probably be delayed and delayed until I wildcard).

          Thats why you can get lundy, use the money and upgrade rico later as needed. Montoya is boring and the fixtures arent great after this week, trust me i own him

            Haha fair enough. Is Lundstram an absolute sure starter? Was all that talk of Besic taking his spot just wildly wrong?

    2. dunas_dog

    Kane's price is gonna be in danger (85%+) of rising in price before Friday isn't he? anyone already made the Auba -> Kane move?

        guess it's a move non-wildcarders are more likely to make? if I missed out on a surprise Kane change I wouldn't be pleased 😀

          Pool are struggling in defence so not as many as planned. Auba scoring every game.

            • 4 Years
            28 days, 21 mins ago

            Would you Auba>Kane(C) for a hit? The other captain options are Salah and KDB

            1. Firebreathinturtle
              • 1 Year

              Same dilemma over here

                27 days, 23 hours ago

                If I had Sterling I would just cap him and hold

  4. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
    • 2 Years
    28 days, 49 mins ago

    On a wildcard. Which option do you prefer?

    A) Mount, Digne, Soy
    B) Mount, AWB, KWP
    C) Ceballos, AWB, Zinchenko
    D) Ceballos, Digne, KWP

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 48 mins ago

      Ceballos digne soy and .5

    2. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      28 days, 47 mins ago

      Hmmm, between C & D for me, probs just side with. C because United and City defender looks the way to go for a fair while now.

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 2 Years
        28 days, 45 mins ago

        Digne is just an amazing optipn. Zinhenko is no more than a CS and a rotation risk in a few weeks time

        1. ZICO SENNA
          • 8 Years
          28 days, 42 mins ago

          He really is, i'm torn whether to include him below haha. Zinchenko is a risk waiting to happen now it seems in a couple weeks.

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 45 mins ago

      D

    4. Dakes.
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 45 mins ago

      C with mcginn over Ceballos

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 2 Years
        28 days, 27 mins ago

        I like the look of the guy. But ceballos playing behind auba, laca and Pepe sounds like a potential assist machine

    5. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 37 mins ago

      Thanks guys. Leaning towards D

    6. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 31 mins ago

      i think A is really good

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        28 days, 30 mins ago

        basically i think mount has a better chance of becoming template than ceballos, who could easily fade off into obscurity like neves etc last year, who was briefly popular

        1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
          • 2 Years
          28 days, 26 mins ago

          Unlike Neves Ceballos is playing as a #10

          1. EMBOLOFAN

        No, Kelly will be benched and AWB shall be completing the trio alonside the other two in option A, playing 352 and possibly 442 with Lundstram playing over 5th mid some weeks.

        1. OldBenKenobi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

            28 days, 40 mins ago

              We got similar teams except I put my faith in Kane and you in Mane

              1. ZICO SENNA
                • 8 Years
                28 days, 34 mins ago

                Haha yeah i did have Kane all day in yesterdays draft, but felt it imapcted my defence too much from the mids i wanted, so it's just more for balance really, hurt to lose Salah but Mane should do just fine.

                1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
                  • 2 Years
                  28 days, 25 mins ago

                  Got neither of them atm. So many mids I want.

                    Neither of Salah and Mane that is

                      • 8 Years
                      28 days, 13 mins ago

                      Ahh nothing wrong with that if points are still likely to be as potent elsewhere.

            • 2 Years
            28 days, 35 mins ago

            Just a secure starter for 4.0. Will be sitting you bench anyway

            1. ZICO SENNA
              • 8 Years
              28 days, 33 mins ago

              Is he a definite starter yeah? Or holding a place for someone injured?
              Don't know much about Norwich

      2. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years
        28 days, 43 mins ago

        That's true, would probably only play him 3 out of the next 6 games, Kelly would be warming the bench with Cantwell and Lundstram, and AWB my other main defender.

      3. The Suspended One

      What’s the rest of your team? A is a million more expensive

      1. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years
        28 days, 33 mins ago

        Yeah it would be mate, team is above 🙂

        1. sovietrockettes
          28 days, 32 mins ago

          I see - in that case Dunk Digne Zinchenko and Salah 😉

          1. ZICO SENNA
            • 8 Years
            28 days, 29 mins ago

            Cheers, Salah would be a million more though.

            1. sovietrockettes
              28 days, 27 mins ago

              But B is a million cheaper than A....so you can use the extra mil on Mane>Salah

              1. ZICO SENNA
                • 8 Years
                28 days, 23 mins ago

                Ahh yeah i know but i'm intent on going with Mane and if i used the extra mill it would be to upgrade Cantwell.

                  Can you get to Ceballos

    5. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 29 mins ago

      A if you can afford it

  6. OldBenKenobi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    28 days, 47 mins ago

    2 FTs and I’m not sure how to approach this lot:

    Pope
    TAA Robbo Zinchenko Coleman
    Salah Sterling KDB Perez
    King Jota

    Button Dendoncker Greenwood Rico

    0.0ITB

    1. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 44 mins ago

      Robbo downgrade to afford Perez to Martial. You have lost pricerises on Pukki so let him wait but you might wanna keep cash to get him

      1. OldBenKenobi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        28 days, 41 mins ago

        You would ignore King against City?

        1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
          • 2 Years
          28 days, 34 mins ago

          Salah + King -> Mane + Pukki

          Jump on the train

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 43 mins ago

      King to Pukki and Perez to Mount

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 2 Years
        28 days, 33 mins ago

        Or this.. but with Ceballos prolly

    3. n14mul
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 38 mins ago

      I have almost the same team and I’m stuck in a similar dilema

      A. Pukki rashford & ceballos
      B. Pukki king & martial

  7. Dakes.
    • 2 Years
    28 days, 46 mins ago

    How likely would you say it is that Perez is benched off the back of two pretty bad performances, in which he was hooked early in both games?

    1. TorresMagic™ - bcvy39…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      28 days, 45 mins ago

      He's due but there's a chance he's a super sub this GW.

      1. Dakes.
        • 2 Years
        28 days, 40 mins ago

        There is, of course.

        You keeping or selling do you think?

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 39 mins ago

      would possibly dent his confidence to drop him after playing in 2 tough games, and not really brendans style..i think he'll be given more time.

      1. TheBrazilianRonaldo
        28 days, 27 mins ago

        So much this. Brendon is the players friend like Klopp. He’ll not bench him for a while

    3. Legend of Rosický
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 2 mins ago

      Benched this GW imo. Albrighton looked good when he came on

  8. Maddamotha
    • 2 Years
    28 days, 44 mins ago

    A) Robbo, Fraser > Montoya, KDB
    B) Robbo, Wilson > Kelly, Kane

    1. n14mul
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 41 mins ago

      A

    2. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…

      B

  9. james 101
    • 7 Years
    28 days, 44 mins ago

    Which one would you lose to pay for upgrades elsewhere?

    A. Mane
    B. Sterling
    C. KDB
    D. Martial
    E. Firmino
    F. Rashford

    1. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 43 mins ago

      Firmino or Rash

      1. james 101
        • 7 Years
        28 days, 42 mins ago

        Feeling the same way.

        Maybe firm

        Hard call though

        1. n14mul
          • 2 Years
          28 days, 41 mins ago

          Bobby

          1. james 101
            • 7 Years
            28 days, 40 mins ago

            Cheers. Leaning that way.

            My current WC team needs some more cash in defence I reckon.

            1. n14mul
              • 2 Years
              28 days, 35 mins ago

              What’s you wc looking like

              1. james 101
                • 7 Years
                28 days, 28 mins ago

                Nuts if I have all those!

                Pope Button
                WanB Lunds Kelly Rico Hanley
                Mane Sterling KDB Martial Cantwell
                Pukki Firmino Rashford

                Playing this mostly I guess:

                Pope
                WanB (plus 2)
                Mane Sterling KDB Martial Cantwell
                Pukki Firmino Rashford

    2. james 101
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 41 mins ago

      TM. Any thoughts?

      1. TorresMagic™ - bcvy39…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        28 days, 33 mins ago

        Not B or C for a start.

        1. james 101
          • 7 Years
          28 days, 32 mins ago

          No doubt

        2. james 101
          • 7 Years
          28 days, 32 mins ago

          Keep one. Rash or Firm?

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 41 mins ago

      That’s hard would not want to lose any to be honest. Gun to head then Rashford but not happy with that

      1. james 101
        • 7 Years
        28 days, 40 mins ago

        Thanks man

    4. EMBOLOFAN

      firmino is playing really well but he can easily go on a run of playing really well without being any use in FPL

      1. james 101
        • 7 Years
        28 days, 39 mins ago

        ...is why I brought him in.

        But if I keep em all my defence has a lot of 4m!

    5. KDB4PREZ
      28 days, 40 mins ago

      Firmino

      1. james 101
        • 7 Years
        28 days, 38 mins ago

        Cheers

    6. james 101
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 38 mins ago

      Keeping them all gives me something like this!

      Pope Button
      WanB Lunds Kelly Rico Hanley
      Mane Sterling KDB Martial Cantwell
      Pukki Firmino Rashford

      1. james 101
        • 7 Years
        28 days, 37 mins ago

        Hell of an offence. But...

        1. n14mul
          • 2 Years
          28 days, 34 mins ago

          It’s got to be either rashford or bobby

          1. james 101
            • 7 Years
            28 days, 31 mins ago

            I reckon. Yeah. But which.

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        28 days, 34 mins ago

        Firmino to go imo.

        1. james 101
          • 7 Years
          28 days, 31 mins ago

          Cheers

    7. james 101
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 29 mins ago

      Consensus seems to be Firmino

  10. EMBOLOFAN
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    28 days, 44 mins ago

    bookies implied anytime goalscorer odds have kane at 64% and sterling at 54%. considering that mids get 5pts for a goal and strikers get 4pts that already would make sterling a better captaincy option (before even factoring in his increased chances of getting assist and ~50% chance of a CS point). i suspect this is basically the case week on week - people overvalue premium strikers in general and subsequently as captaincy options.

    1. Maddamotha
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 40 mins ago

      Thanks

    2. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 40 mins ago

      Mids much better options in general. 1 more point for goal and 1 cs point and a better chance of baps if both score 1 goal.

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        28 days, 36 mins ago

        yeah that was my theory all of last season - to spend as little on strikers as possible, eventually settling on jimenez in 4-5-1. hopefully this season its pukki but lets see. for some stupid reason i started the season with auba over sterling, trying to be clever with 3x city defence. rectified for this week.

  11. n14mul
    • 2 Years
    28 days, 42 mins ago

    Currently on Jota as my new 6.5m striker any better options?

    1. KDB4PREZ
      28 days, 41 mins ago

      I’d stick for sure

    2. TorresMagic™ - bcvy39…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    4. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 38 mins ago

      No - he may well take couple of weeks to get going but at end of season you will be glad you had him.

    5. n14mul
      • 2 Years

      Ok done jota over king thanks guys

    6. wulfranian

      Maybe Chicharito.

      1. Soto Ayam
        28 days, 15 mins ago

        Haller should be back this week. Allow chicarito

    7. EMBOLOFAN

      if i owned him i'd keep him

    8. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years

      I got rid last week, but will bring him back very soon I think

    9. sovietrockettes
      28 days, 29 mins ago

      Stick - he may outscore the Pukki Train

  12. KDB4PREZ
    28 days, 41 mins ago

    TAA/perez/Auba-Zinc/sterling/Pukki for -8? Is this crazy guys, first time player any help would be great!

    1. KDB4PREZ
      28 days, 37 mins ago

      Also my team would then be set until WC on GW8 providing no injuries lol

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 34 mins ago

      i dont love it - i do think having sterling is important, but think taa is potentially best value outfield player available.

      1. KDB4PREZ
        28 days, 26 mins ago

        Cheers man any ideas how to get sterling in while keeping salah?

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          28 days, 15 mins ago

          not without seeing team, i took a hit to do exactly that this week

          1. KDB4PREZ
            28 days, 11 mins ago

            Team is
            Pope
            AWB/digne/TAA/Lundy/Rico
            Salah/Perez/KDB/martial/Trossard
            Deulofeu/Auba/ Greenwood
            1mill itb and 1FT

            Surely I shouldn’t be WC this lot lol but not sure what to do.

            1. EMBOLOFAN
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              27 days, 23 hours ago

              trossard or perez to cantwell/dendo instead of the taa transfer imo

              1. KDB4PREZ
                27 days, 23 hours ago

                Cheers guys

      Chasing points. Sterling yep, rest you’ll be transferring out before gw8 if you’re taking -8 now

      1. KDB4PREZ
        28 days, 27 mins ago

        Yeah I agree just unsure what other way to get sterling in without loosing salah, any idea? Cheers

      2. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years

        Don't agree there, Pukki is a keeper.

        1. KDB4PREZ
          28 days, 11 mins ago

          Any ideas what I can do? So lost with price rises lol first time player and in a cash ML

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  15. Tsparkes10
    • 1 Year

    Still stuck on no United, no spurs or no Kdb fs. 2FT.

    Liverpool win champions league, come 2nd in epl, VVD gets a goal in 2 and TAA an assist in 2. Rediculous value. Ppl whacking the transfer out button. The summer was a long time obviously

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 26 mins ago

      couldnt agree more - they will settle at the back even without allison, and until they do they'll be a big threat going forwards anyway

      1. Legend of Rosický
        • 1 Year
        28 days, 3 mins ago

        Yeah still got Sadio Mane on WC, will bring 1 defender back when Allison is fit

    A) Ceballos + KWP
    B) Mount + Soy

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 27 mins ago

      Hmm difficult. Not keen on either tbh. Prefer Trossard over Mount and Burnley defender over Soy atm.

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 2 Years

        Got Pope in goal

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 27 mins ago

      B for me.

      Mount for two weeks until we find out if Ceballos is nailed on as a #10 and tough fixtures.

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…

    3. ZICO SENNA

      28 days, 26 mins ago

      I'd be inclined to go option A there mate.

      (Further to mine above, i've decided to maybe go half and half in AWB, Digne & Laporte, reckon that'll do).

      1. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years
        28 days, 26 mins ago

        Doh!! I meant to say option B.

            haha! The decisions! Killer aren't they. From those, i'd have to choose Digne, just love him too much.

      B - i commented earlier on someone elses post that ceballos could easily fade into obscurity like neves and other similar players before him who were briefly popular before it became apparent they were great players but not great fpl assets. mount is playing number 10, the risk is minutes, but at worst he's dangerous in fpl terms. better fixtures in the short term so more chance of bandwagon too.

        Thoughts on Mount v McGinn?

        Ceballos is a nr. 10 too. Or so he was vs Burnley.

          i'll check the heatmaps in a minute but he spent a lot of the game in his own half (notably winning ball back, playing long balls over the top of defence from deep). he was nowhere near as advanced as mount.

          i've not seen enough of mcginn as i don't follow championship closely and only seen 90mins of villa

          ceballos 57% touches in opposition half
          mount 72% touches in opposition half

      Mount is a far better pick than Ceballos so has to be B.

    Cannot decide whether to pull the trigger on Perez Sigurdsson to McGinn KDB (-4) or keep faith in the former two for another week

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 23 mins ago

      I'd pull that for sure.

    2. sovietrockettes
      28 days, 23 mins ago

      I would keep

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 22 mins ago

      i'd definitely give it another week. if mcginn looks good and perez looks awful again its a no brainer, but better to have more info before doing a double transfer. the inverse could easily happen

      1. Dakes.
        • 2 Years
        28 days, 20 mins ago

        This is true. Just the double price drop on Perez and Siggy could be well annoying in the future. And neither of them have looked very good so far

        1. sovietrockettes
          28 days, 19 mins ago

          You probably got Pérez looking at gw3

          1. Dakes.

          siggys been ok, had a big chance gw1 and set up a big chance for richarlison last week. perez i agree but the first two fixtures were always going to be tough, before easing up 3/4

        Have done haha.
        KDB v bou could be great, FOMO.
        Siggy should do ok against Villa but I said the same for the last 2 and that went rubbish
        Perez I really don’t know. Sheffield have looked decent, Leicester meh and Perez in particular not good so far
        McGinn/Mount decent fixtures and form

  23. MFPL
    • 4 Years
    28 days, 17 mins ago

    Which option?

    A) TAA + Dendoncker

    B) Zinchenko/Coleman + Mount

    A) means that I’ll play Cantwell and Lundstram in rotation

  24. Dakes.
    • 2 Years
    28 days, 14 mins ago

    Did stats comparison on Mount v McGinn, and am now leaning towards Mount to replace Perez (either this week for a hit w Siggy to KDB or next week!)
    😆

  25. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Could there be some gold (besides Lundstram) in that Sheffield defence? Their Overlapping CB tactic + their defenders stats makes them quite interesting. Their fixtures are really horrible though.

    1. Dakes.
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 9 mins ago

      Ones to monitor but not buy yet

    2. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      28 days, 8 mins ago

      I'm not sure how this overlapping CB tactic is going to work in the PL when they lose possession. Teams are going to exploit that O'Connell / Basham is out of position.

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        28 days, 5 mins ago

        Our strikers drops... Our cm drops... Its complicated but not as many holes as you'd think. If you watch our goal from Sunday, our ST drops to CM, CM is in cb, our LCB is in LM and our LWB is in CAM almost. It'll be adapted against the bigger teams but will work wonders in bottom half I think

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          27 days, 23 hours ago

          Interesting, will be one to watch for sure.

      2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        28 days, 1 min ago

        The idea is that the CDM will fall back deep when the CB runs up the wing.

    3. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 7 mins ago

      Wouldn't say horrible but not great for a while. JOC at 4.5 I was tempted but deno in goal

    4. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 6 mins ago

      its a wait and see but with leicester, burnley and brighton options at 4.5 im not sure its likely to be worth it anytime soon

  26. Dakes.
    • 2 Years
    28 days, 11 mins ago

    Oh bugger. Well if it’s Mount I go for rather than McGinn, it’ll have to be tonight. Can’t afford to do the moves post price changes if it involves Mount!

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      28 days, 9 mins ago

      Get Ceballos and ignore everyone else 😉

      1. Dakes.
        • 2 Years
        28 days, 9 mins ago

        Horrid fixtures and less-than-100%-nailed though!

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          28 days, 6 mins ago

          There are no horrid fixtures for attackers. Well perhaps against Liverpool and Man City.

          We don't know if he's nailed, but that's what transfers are for. He has so much upside when playing with Aubameyang and Lacazette.

          1. Dakes.
            • 2 Years
            28 days, 4 mins ago

            Agree on the upside for sure, and will be monitored closely!

        hey TM, that went straight over my head! Are you referring to his pending price rise?

          3 starters vs Mane.

          1. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            28 days, 2 mins ago

            sorry, gotcha. Yes, that's why I'm on 1 at the moment.

            Firmino has a very good scoring record vs Arsenal so think I'm going to grow a pair and not worry about going without Salah/Mane. Cheers.

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2 but not moura

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        28 days, 4 mins ago

        I've got Martial already, anyone else other than dropping to the Mount price point?

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          28 days, 1 min ago

          yeah it probably does mean dropping to 6.0 zone and upgrading def, unless you like maddison/pulisic

          1. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            27 days, 23 hours ago

            Got a soft spot for Moura, but yeah could be another transfer waiting to happen. Will mull it over. Cheers bud.

  28. Niall909

    I'm on a wildcard and can't decide between the 2 I should chose.
    Dunk,siggy or coleman,maddison.
    Here's the rest of the squad aswell.
    Pope
    Maguire, Robertson,walker, blank
    Martial,sterling,mane,kdb,blank
    Pukki.
    Bench, lundstram,4.5,4.5.

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      if coleman was awb i'd go for it. otherwise find 0.5 to get digne

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        robbo to vvd perhaps

      2. Niall909
        28 days, 1 min ago

        Can swap Maguire to AWB but I'm hoping for a few goals from corners.

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 3 mins ago

      Coleman Madisson for me

  29. Legend of Rosický
    • 1 Year
    28 days, 4 mins ago

    Alright I know this is a popular wildcard team on here but here goes, what do you think lads?

    Ryan
    AWB Mina KWP Lundy
    Sterling Mane KDB Martial
    Kane Pukki

    Button Cantwell Kelly Wickam

    Happy to go without a premium defence with the attacking potential this team brings, hope AWB, Mina and KWP (Hopefully nails down his place) can do a job for me. Lundy, Cantwell and Kelly fight for 1 place.

    Thoughts?

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 3 mins ago

      not sure mina is worth 5.5, probably rather double up on united defence, or find 0.5 to upgrade to digne. but not sure how to do that easily with your team

  30. zdrojo187

    Who to play?
    A) Duffy
    B) Lundstram
