Which FPL defenders are the most attacking in 2019/20 so far?

The 2018/19 season was the year of the defender from a Fantasy Premier League perspective, with the three best value-for-money FPL assets all belonging to Liverpool’s backline.

The Reds and Manchester City racked up 41 clean sheets between them (no team had recorded 20 shut-outs in a single campaign since 2011/12; last season we had two clubs achieving that) and six defenders hit double figures for attacking returns.

There was a lot of talk of FPL managers going ‘five at the back’ in pre-season, although the momentum behind that strategy stalled as we approached Gameweek 1 and lost further traction once 2019/20 begun.

Everton are the only club to have registered clean sheets in both of their top-flight fixtures, with Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs among the ten teams yet to record a single shut-out.

Clean sheets are just one route to points, of course, and we Fantasy managers love an FPL defender who can pick up the odd attacking return at the other end of the pitch.

With that in mind, our latest Members’ article takes a look at the defenders who have demonstrated an offensive threat in Gameweeks 1 and 2.

It is still very early days in the 2019/20 campaign, it should be said, and there has to be a big disclaimer about any findings in this article.

Certainly, we’ll get a better picture of the lay of the land once we’re a month or two into the new season and there is a bigger data sample to analyse.

Nevertheless, any early patterns can help us steal a march on other Fantasy managers and identity which defenders could chip in with a goal or assist over the coming Gameweeks – and possibly compensate for any loss of clean sheets.

    Selling Wilson this week or next but used my FTs. Two 5s is fine but I don’t like his next three.

    A) Sell tonight (before he falls) but for a hit. In this instance bringing in Haller (who has just fallen so if “safe”)

    B) Sell next week for free (although another transfer may of course be needed) but he will have dropped. In this instance I will scout Haller and Kean.

      Why do u want Haller?

      1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…

        Fixtures. And I don’t have a midfield spot open for lanzini.

    2. SADIO SANÉ

      29 days, 12 hours ago

      only you can answer this question, I've taken a hit for Martial because I know I want him for the next 5+ weeks (unless he gets injured of course) - if you don't know for sure then I wouldn't bother doing it this week

      1. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Thanks sadio sane. Sounds dumb but it just feels right. I also really like his fixture.

        A lot of it is not wanting to lose 0.1 on wilson when it’s avoidable though.

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Wait before you get Haller.

      1. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Not enough data?

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          29 days, 12 hours ago

          Unless Haller outperforms Pukki then stay away.

          1. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            29 days, 12 hours ago

            He has the fixtures to.

            1. FOO FIGHTER
              29 days, 12 hours ago

              When Haller has not hit the ground running? Pukki party.

              1. VanDijksToWatchOutFor

                • 1 Year
                29 days, 12 hours ago

                You mean he didn’t score against city and then had an injury?

              We (WHU) look awful right now...

                Cheers, haven’t actually seen any whu yet, just love fixtures.

  2. Disturbed

    Worth making one of these transfers to fund barkley > martial?

    a. taa > kwp (have vvd)
    b. perez > cantwell

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Do you have KDB?

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        No

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          29 days, 12 hours ago

          Then forget Martial and fit in KDB.

    2. cheeky moses
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      B

    3. Phlajo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      B imo

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      I did VvD > Soyuncu to fund Barkley > Martial.

      But I did it earlier to avoid the 0.2m swing.

    5. Debauchy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      No

  3. cheeky moses
    • 3 Years
    29 days, 12 hours ago

    Need some help here gents:

    A) Wilson, Fraser, Salah -> Pukki, kDB, Mane
    B) Wilson, Fraser, Digne -> Pukki, KDB, AWB

    Both require a -4 obv. Which do you prefer? Currently leaning towards A depending on Digne fitness.

    1. AuFeld
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      A. Pray that Milner starts indefinitely.

      1. cheeky moses
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Haha cheers

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Can you do A without Salah > Mane?

      1. cheeky moses
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Unfortunately not. Gotta shave at least .5 to fit in Pukki and KDB

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          29 days, 12 hours ago

          Don't like making a sideways move like that as part of a hit. Surely there's another way to improve and shave that money.

          1. cheeky moses
            • 3 Years
            29 days, 12 hours ago

            I guess I could do Pérez > Mount to fund the move. Would that make more sense?

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              29 days, 12 hours ago

              Yeah I like that.

              1. cheeky moses
                • 3 Years
                29 days, 12 hours ago

                Cheers!

    3. blind faith

      B
      There was a comment on the podcast saying "How many times last season did people say "I wish I put AWB in my team" and that was when he was with CRY"

      1. Lacabacca
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Well he was getting points as a 4.0 defender last year.Not the same this time.

        1. Zenith UK
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          29 days, 12 hours ago

          Whether he was 4.0 or 5.5 people wouldn't wish they had him in their (starting XI) if he was scoring 2 points.

      2. cheeky moses
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Well thats mostly because he was cheap as chips. Doubt they would have said that if he had cost 5.5 from the start last season >D

  4. blind faith
    • 7 Years
    29 days, 12 hours ago

    A) Salah, Ceballos... Sterling, Cantwell, Douglas Luis
    Kane, Pukki, Barnes

    B) Mane, Martial... etc.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      B is about 1m more

      1. blind faith
        • 7 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Yes...?

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          29 days, 12 hours ago

          Well, there's the answer. Without telling us where the 1m goes.

      2. blind faith
        • 7 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Can't have Salah and Martial though... -0.7

    2. cheeky moses
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      I like the start of B, but I gotta give us more than that!

      1. blind faith
        • 7 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Well B the etc is the same as end of A

        1. cheeky moses
          • 3 Years
          29 days, 12 hours ago

          Ah ok, then B. But drop Kane and beef up that midfield

  5. FPLGeezer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    29 days, 12 hours ago

    Best £6m or less midfielder?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      McGinn, Ceballoas or Trossard

      1. FPLGeezer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Considering all 3 plus Grealish but one doesn't seem to stand out. Ceballos could be gold but want to see if he's nailed on to start

      2. Hint
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        29 days, 11 hours ago

        McGinn if you need the .5, otherwise Trossard.

        Would leave Ceballos for a few weeks due to fixtures.

    2. sovietrockettes
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Ceballos hands down

  6. Tmel
    • 8 Years
    29 days, 12 hours ago

    Pope
    Robbo Laporte Digne TAA (Rico)
    Salah Sterling Perez Trossard (Dendoncker)
    Wilson Jota (Greenwood)

    a) Perez & Wilson > Martial & Pukki
    b) Robbo & Perez > Lundstrom & KDB
    c) Robbo & Wilson > Lundstrom & Kane
    d) WC to get in Kane, KDB, Martial, Mane, Pukki etc.

    1. Debauchy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      C

    2. DVassell
      • 8 Years

      A

  7. Galza
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    29 days, 12 hours ago

    How does my W/C team rate against others you’ve seen..??

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

    Button / Doug Luiz / Lundstram / Kelly

    I personally think it offers good flexibility in hopping on any emerging wagons and not getting left at the station.

    What do we think...??

    1. Yome
      • 7 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Need Salah or Mane

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        I’m kind of hoping I can get by with Firmino as my Pool attack.
        Allows me Sterling and KDB who I really want.
        If it doesn’t work out though, it’s relatively pain free to get one.

      2. Wild Card this...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        29 days, 11 hours ago

        That

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Kelly is probably on last legs.

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Yeah I’m hoping that I won’t need to use that last bench spot. Lundstram looks to be a pretty safe back up defender atm. Ty

    3. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      how do you jump on the Salah/Mane wagons next week?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        The usual Kane switcheroo.

        1. SADIO SANÉ
          • 4 Years
          29 days, 12 hours ago

          Kane -> Wickham doesn't even do it, so that's a -8 😀

      2. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Lots of ways.
        That’s what I like about this team.
        Options everywhere...

        1. SADIO SANÉ
          • 4 Years
          29 days, 12 hours ago

          gonna WC to get Sterling/KDB/Martial and then take one out after 1 week for a hit?

          1. Galza
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            29 days, 12 hours ago

            Don’t plan too. No...

    4. AuFeld
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      I like it a lot. Are you concerned about Foyth?

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Quite a few options if KWP gets dropped. Could even downgrade to a 4.5 and have a bit of money itb...

    5. HIT ME!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Flexibility is good. But points better. Get Son over Firmino imo. It looks good though.

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Yeah, cheers.
        I still want some form of a Liverpool attack though, even if it is a poor mans version. 🙂

    6. TheNecromancer
      • 7 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Still not ready to abandon Salah.
      Tried that last year and it didn't work out to well.
      Then again, that was last year.
      Great looking team, tho.
      Good luck,
      -Nec

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Thanks mate.
        Had exact money for it and some players in my old team that were due a drop.
        If I didn’t push it, I would of missed out on this...

    7. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      29 days, 11 hours ago

      Nice team. If I was to WC it would look something similar. Only Digne,Cantwell over KWP,Ceballos.

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        29 days, 11 hours ago

        Thanks.
        Not too sure on double Norwich attack atm, but could be an option later down the line.
        I really liked the look of Ceballos. Just hope Emery doesn’t wreck him...

  8. Sting in the Tail
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    29 days, 12 hours ago

    A) Digne, Laporte, KDB, Jota
    B) Mina, Zinc, Mount, Kane

    Which?

  9. FOO FIGHTER
    29 days, 12 hours ago

    My honest opinion

    Stay away from Chelsea and UTD assets.

    When I see posts getting rid of VVD to fund Martial.

    Remind me which defender scored more points last season than most forwards lol.

  10. fc_skrald
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    29 days, 12 hours ago

    Thought I was ready to go but who should be my new midfielder?

    a. Son
    b. Martial
    c. KDB

    Heaton
    TAA, Robertson, Digne, Lundstram
    Salah, Sterling, Robinson, X
    Wilson, Pukki

    4.0, Greenwood, Hayden, Rico

    1. n-doggg
      • 7 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      If price no object then probably kdb until Son gets up and running

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      KDB, you know it.

    3. Sting in the Tail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      KDB as you can always downgrade next week

    4. fc_skrald
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Thanks all! I knew it 🙂

    5. DVassell

    Pope
    Robertson, awb, digne, soyun
    Salah, sterling, Martial, Robinson
    Kane, jota

    Button, lundstrum, dendonca, wickham

    Yay or nay?

    1. Fit of Pique
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Team looks great, Soyun the weak link imo

  12. Annie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    29 days, 12 hours ago

    on WC, bench is weak with Kane (means Cantwell starts), A or non Kane B?

    a) KWP, Cantwell, Martial, Kane
    b) Digne, TAA, Ceballos, Rashford

    1. n-doggg
      • 7 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

  14. Fit of Pique
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    29 days, 12 hours ago

    On a wildcard and been trying to make a Sterling, Mane, Kane, KDB, Martial team but becoming resigned to it not working. Seems to be coming down to Kane or KDB. Can you convince me which one?!

    1. n-doggg
      • 7 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Kane for the next few fixtures. Then chop back to Kdb

        Thanks for the reply. Leaning towards Kane too, because he feels more captainable - for myself, and to guard against others. KDB almost certainly won't be captained regularly, so feels less risky going without. Logic make sense?

      Kane

      29 days, 11 hours ago

      Easy to make;

      Pope, McGovern
      Digne, AWB, Zinc, Lund, Kelly
      Sterling, KDB, Martial, Ceballos, Mane
      Kane, Greenwood, Wickham

      1. Zenith UK
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 11 hours ago

        Granted means rotating Lund, Kelly, Greenwood & Wickham but ain't that half the fun? Aren't you hoping the names you mention make up the points that one of those four MAY not get? Sure is for me!

        Also, no reason why can't do Digne down to to Mina or another 5.5 and upgrade elsewhere.
        Personally I'm hoping Greenwood eventually gets starts after OGS' comments.

          Your draft looks decent. We're in agreement that the hope is the big hitters make up for the enablers (probable) lack of points. I just don't feel right to be relying on rotating two 4m defenders. I should have mentioned I want Pukki in there too:

          Pope, 4.0
          Digne, AWB, ?, ?, Lindstrom
          Sterling, Mane, KDB, Martial, Cantwell
          Kane, Pukki, ?

      Seven shots over two games. What's to be weary of?

        The city game is a write off, he was shackled. Next game will be played inside the Newcastle box

          Oh I know. I already brought him in this week. (C) Kane.

      3. Whiskerz

        How awful Newcastle are and one of those games being vs City.

      I just do not know if Kane will ever be the same with Erikson's mind being on greener pastures.

        Quite the subjective statement.

  16. The Royal Robin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    29 days, 12 hours ago

    Is there a chance Rashford is given penalty responsibility now after the other night? Scored 3/3 in 2019 I believe, which helps his case somewhat.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years

      Looks like it.

    2. Bakra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Solskjaer specifically stated in his post match interview that nothing will change on the penalty taking front. Both are designated penalty takers and whoever is more confident on the day will take the penalty.

      1. Debauchy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Sure but he's gonna look real silly soon unless he grows a pair

    3. AuFeld
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Highly probable imo. IIRC Pogba is 7 for his 11 last pens. Deplorable.

      1. Debauchy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  17. RichieW

    Any suggestions? G2G? 0 itb

    Pope
    VVD Maguire Digne
    Sterling Pogba Siggy Trossard
    Kane Rashford Pukki

    Heaton Lundstram Doncker Hanley

    1. Tcheco

      I like it for this GW. No Liverpool attack is not sustainable

    2. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Siggy to Martial, downgrade Rashford and get mane in there for Trossard imo

  18. Ron Swanson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    29 days, 12 hours ago

    Need to downgrade Perez to a 5.5 (ish) player tonight, as part of the eventual 3-4-3 plan.

    Ceballos
    McGinn
    Jorginho
    Other

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Not Jorginho.

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      McGinn from those but consider Cantwell or Dendocker at 4.5 ish. Mihght be performing at the 5.5 and saves you a million to spend elsewhere.

    3. gellinmagellan
      • 2 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Ceballos even though he needs to be assessed for a couple of weeks at least? Option B would be McGinn. Cantwell ahead of Jorginho

  19. gellinmagellan
    • 2 Years
    29 days, 12 hours ago

    Pope Button
    Robertson Digne Zinchenko Dunk Lundstram
    KdB Salah Moura Trossard Dendoncker
    Kane Jota King

    2 FTs 0.5 ITB. Choose?

    A: Moura > Siggy
    B: Moura > Martial
    C: Moura > Martial; King > Pukki
    D: Step away from keyboard

    1. Starky22

      C is the flavor of the week.

      1. gellinmagellan
        • 2 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        True, but feel that I've missed the boat with the price rises for both. So they can wait another week too. Not really sure of what move to make tbh

        1. Debauchy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          29 days, 12 hours ago

          King to Pukki or Kean

    3. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      V nice team. I'd go just B... Martial only gone up.1 and you have Kane cover but no Man u.

      1. gellinmagellan
        • 2 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Thanks! I am kind of leaning towards that option too

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Just B for me.

      King > Pukki next week. You've already missed 0.2m in rises and won't likely miss another 0.1m. You can get Pukki next week and you retain your two FTs.

    5. Greek Flair

      Mendy is back now for city

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        ? Pep literally said he wanted Mendy to "be able to train for a month straight" before being considered for matches. Hes not even close to a starting spot.

  20. Tsparkes10
    • 1 Year
    29 days, 12 hours ago

    Think im satisfied with transfers now tbh.

    Aubameyang, Perez, Robo to Kane, Martial, AWB (-4)

    Leaves me 0.9itb to upgrade Wesley to Pukki or Robinson next week :). I'm happy

    1. Lacabacca
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Nice moves.

      1. Tsparkes10

    2. Tcheco

      Nice. You'll have a big decision to make when Wesley scores on Friday though 😉

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Easy then ;). Tbf a good fixture after Friday so wouldn't mind if he did

    3. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years

      I like thoe moves mate, sorted with those 🙂

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        29 days, 12 hours ago

        Cheers, about time :). Kane wasn't on my list but got that feeling. And prefer martial to Rashford but Son and Martial is v difficult. Still not sure on AWB or a 4.5 so I have a good amount of money itb to jump on a bandwagon other than pukki. Soyuncu standing out rn

        1. ZICO SENNA
          • 8 Years
          29 days, 12 hours ago

          Yeah Kane i was quite intent on leaving but i can just see it now him proving me wrong haha. Defo prefer Martial to Rashford, and it's easier to start with Kane then move to Son if needed, see how he comes in and does first.
          Hmmm, i reckon AWB is worth it, but having cash itb is nice also. Soyuncu is appealing, but a Burnley defender could be wise, even if doubling up with Pope imo, Pieters, Lowton 🙂

          1. Tsparkes10
            • 1 Year
            29 days, 11 hours ago

            I have Hendo so a Burnley was really appealing tbh. Had my eyes on Lowton... Would leave me a fat 1.9 itb so could do Wesley to Pukki and maybe even Robinson to Mount or Trossard. More decisions... Yay. How's your latest draft looking?

    4. Camzy

    Zinchenko or Walker??

    1. Bakra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Zinch (ideally just get Laporte)

    2. AuFeld
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Walker between the two.

    3. Greek Flair
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Mend confirmed as back

  22. Steirish
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Is lundstram nailed?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights

      One bad game changes that.

    2. Tcheco
      • 2 Years

      Would be crazy to drop him after his last 2 performances

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Not sure but at 4.1m, you cannot go wrong.

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Yes. One of his fellow mids got injured too.

    2FT and 0.0 ITB

    Ryan (Button)
    TAA Van Djik Digne Dunk Lundstram
    Martial Sterling Salah (Dendoncker, PEREZ)
    Jota Deulofeu (King)

    I have 2FTs, so I'm looking to save 1FT and use the other one to ship Perez for:
    A) Mount
    B) Trossard
    C) Cantwell
    D) McGinn

    1. Debauchy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Well yes if you have Sterling also. Will haul anyway whats the oroblem

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      So what? If you have Salah + Sterling just treat him like another high scoring player.

  25. Jammydodger2018
    • 1 Year
    29 days, 12 hours ago

    On my wildcard, last piece of the puzzle is a 6m defend, got Mount before the price rise but would you do something else?

    Ryan Button

    Dunk Dinge VVD KWP Lundstram

    Mane Sterling KDB Mount Cantwell

    Pukki Kane Greenwood

    1. Debauchy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      Pope over Ryan otherwise looks good

    2. Greek Flair
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 12 hours ago

      No Rashford or Martial?

      1. Jammydodger2018
        • 1 Year
        29 days, 11 hours ago

        Can’t have them all mate. Would rather hope that United blank than City or Pool. United didn’t look great against Wolves

      I'd play King over Dendonker, attacking potential trumps fixture for me.

        And yet yesterday it was mentioned that I play Dendo over King!
        I feel Wolves will do well against Burnley! Although they are now seeing how the other teams manage due to the extra Europa qualifying Games......So you may be right in the swap.
