Why has Everton’s attack been so underwhelming so far this season?

Everton’s popular attacking assets have underwhelmed Fantasy Premier League managers so far this season.

After two matches, they have scored just once, only Crystal Palace finding the net fewer times than the Toffees at this stage.

Perhaps we should not be too surprised to see Marco Silva’s men struggle in front of goal at this stage.

During their pre-season campaign, they scored just three goals in seven matches, with Richarlison (£8.0m) the only key figure missing for most of it.

One was registered against Kenyan side Kariobangi Sharks, while Monaco and Mainz were the only other teams to concede against Everton.

The Toffees drew blanks in four of their summer friendlies, against FC Sion, Wigan Athletic, Sevilla and Werder Bremen.

Of those who found the back of the net, Joe Williams and Lewis Gibson are not first-team regulars, the former now a permanent Wigan player, while Seamus Coleman (£5.5m) is the only summer goal-scorer to have played in either Premier League match so far this season.

Accordingly, ahead of a Gameweek 3 trip to Aston Villa, Fantasy managers might be looking to move on their Everton attackers.

We have assessed the underlying statistics from their first two matches of the campaign to find out if the Toffees have simply been unlucky not to score more often, or if there are some tangible reasons for concern.

    My fellow gaffers, appreciate your insight on these 2 combos, which one would u choose?
    My team consists of heavy hitters in MID + Kane up top, left 0.3mil ITB. Currently on WC.

    a) Soyuncu (or any 4.5m DEF) + Trossard + Barnes
    b) Mina + Cantwell or Douglas Luiz + Pukki

        Thx Biggie..is B too kneejerk?

        1. bigbudgie
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          Just don't like any of those in B
          Soyuncu could prove good value for 4.5
          Trossard looks like a player and Brighton vastly improved
          Barnes probably the weakest link there

          1. Vigorish
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            11 months, 19 days ago

            Had the same thought really...

        • 6 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Thx buddy. I feel I needed some differentials in Trossard - seen him played, took some few good shots. Having said that, Cantwell's ownership is just 3.7% more than Trossard.

    3. pingissimus
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 19 days ago

      B

      How many heavy hitters in midfield?

      1. Vigorish
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        With Mane, Sterling, KDB and Marshall Mathers..still B?

    4. juho
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      I have a similar WC team
      Went for Trossard as 4th mid and Pukki

      1. Vigorish
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Interesting but I'm not ready to lose any of my heavy hitters in midfield. Can't have it all I supposed.
        Good luck with your WC.

    Just made a $100 bet with a Liverpool fan who believes Firmino will score 20+ this season.

    The bet is if he scores 18 or more he wins, anything under I win.

    Fairly safe bet you’d say hey? Any reason I’m missing that makes Firmino score more goals this season?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Given the past, yeah.

    2. Kiwivillan
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Wow easy $100 for you assuming PL goals only

      1. Helia
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Haha yeah, I almost feel bad

    3. AicilaXI
      • 1 Year

      Congrats on the $100.

      1. Helia

        Haha thanks!

    4. The Man Pastore

      You should be safe

    5. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Interested in Benteke to score no less than 5 goals this season? I say he score 5 or more. $ 350??

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        You'd need to get membership 1st or you would just disappear when he doesn't.

        1. Hakim Ziyech

          Hahaha

      2. Helia

        1. Hakim Ziyech
          • 1 Year

          Loool

    6. bigbudgie
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      20 is a lot of premier league goals

      22 last season was the golden boot for Mane/Auba/Salah

      Very safe bet imo

      1. Helia
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Huge amount. Its an amount that if he scored that much I’d assume liverpool won the league

    7. Vigorish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Yea, would think so. 18 is alot goals in EPL IMO.

    8. Lecky Legs FC
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      As a die hard Kopite I think your safe too but he's absolutely key player in our system and plays Arsenal who he loves scoring against I'm heading that game and will consider throwing the armband on him.

    9. Batchain
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      I'm interested in the Benteke bet. You think he's going to 'explode' and get 6 or 7? Can't see it. 3 max.

  3. michudagawd

    Good to go?

    -4

    Pope
    KWP VVD Soyuncu
    Salah Perez Martial Trossard Sterling
    Pukki Kane (c)

    Button - Cathcart Greenwood Rico

    1. Rolls-Royce

      G2G. Confident on Kane over Sterling captain?

      1. michudagawd
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        I think it'll be close. I got Kane in this gameweek though with the intention of captaining him against the Magpies because I'm targeting players against Newcastle.

  4. Snipez21
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Is this worth it lads for a -4?
    And If so which def?

    Walker + Moura + Wilson
    To
    5.0 + De Bruyne + Pukki

    1. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Might be a bit late, price rises have taken their toll.

      1. Snipez21
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 19 days ago

        I can still make the change but which def up to 5.0 is best value? I have zinchenko so still have city courage at the back.

        1. michudagawd
          • 7 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          Have you wildcarded yet? Maybe KWP at home to Newcastle.

          1. Snipez21
            • 1 Year
            11 months, 19 days ago

            No still have WC. I like that I never have considered him 2bf, I know rotation is a risk but I got WC to fall back on. Thanks for the reply.

    2. Batchain

    Do we think having Digne instead of Robbo is a good bet ??
    Have Defense of

    Robbo Taa Montoya Lundstram Rico

    Will do it next gw anyway as my FT this gw are used. But the 1m ££ can be used to upgrade Midfield/attack too.

    Thank you for your thoughts

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Given your defence, TAA would be better 🙂

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 19 days ago

        So you'd keep Robbo.
        Cheers TM. Taa can get massive hauls though. Pathetic defensively so can be dropped too 😀
        Agreed

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          Digne is pretty valuable atm.

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            11 months, 19 days ago

            😮
            Thank you

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Upgrade Midfielder can be KDB/son for Vardy & Midfielder swap*

      1. pingissimus
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 19 days ago

        That’s a minus 8 incoming 🙂

        If you wait 2 weeks to make that swap with a minus 4 KdB will be out of reach

        But yes I think Digne might be worth it. Not wholly convinced mind facing Palace (where cs was only down to Pickford) and Watford are a barometer of current cs strength.

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          11 months, 19 days ago

          Ha ha
          I have 0.3 itb atm
          Can save FT this upcoming gw & do :
          Vardy Trossard Taa
          To
          Barnes KDB/Son Digne in gw 5

          Taa/Robbo to Digne can be done next gw too.
          What do you think ??

          1. pingissimus
            • 1 Year
            11 months, 19 days ago

            GW5 is worth planning for - look at those fixtures. Heavy hitter heaven

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              11 months, 19 days ago

              Exactly
              Hopefully can save a FT in gw 4 now.
              Cheers Pingi

          2. pingissimus
            • 1 Year
            11 months, 19 days ago

            Didn’t see question sorry

            Yes I’d go next week probs. Double Liverpool defence away to Burnley seems excessive right now and this Jota owner knows for a fact that Wolves aren’t exactly banging then in - except in EL of course

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              11 months, 19 days ago

              Ha ha
              I need to WC 😀
              There is a IB after gw 4 right ??

    3. Squeakybum99
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 19 days ago

      I downgraded Robbo early on Monday to fit Kdb and Martial. Have digne. And vvd as pool cover. Everton’s fixtures are good. Ideally i would have liked to keep Robbo but looking at the current state of things, it had to be done.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Yeah
        Thankfully this gw has Digne some doubts so i can wait.
        Agreed with you though mate
        Cheers

    4. bigbudgie
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Can't have em all
      I had to lose Robbo to get KDB

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Hello BB
        Hope you are having a good start.
        I'm thinking about doing same. Taa looks more possible to get hauls instead of Robbo though isn't he ?? 😀
        Can get dropped too though.

        1. bigbudgie
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          Decent enough start, sitting at 355K. I only have VVD now for LIV defence along with Laporte Digne Maguire

          TAA always has the possibility of hauling, yes, but I'm hanging onto the thought that they are not quite going to repeat the monster year they had last year in terms of defensive solidity. Attacking returns are nice, but preferably they are on top of near guaranteed clean sheets.

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            11 months, 19 days ago

            That is a solid Defense !!
            I'd gave to WC to get anywhere near that tbh 😀
            Maybe this is why I'm having a pathetic start. Will wait for another gw & then decide now.
            Everton City Pool United looks awesome 4 man Defense !!

            1. bigbudgie
              • 6 Years
              11 months, 19 days ago

              We'll see. My moves were Robbo/Siggy/Wilson to Laporte/KDB/Jota -4. Very happy to get a city defender in

              1. Amey
                • 1 Year
                11 months, 19 days ago

                Nice
                Wouldn't have gotten Jota personally
                He's frustrating to own from start of the season for me

  7. Rajveer
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Gtg? Stuck between Kane and Sterling for the band..Any suggestions?

    Ryan
    Vvd Zinchenko Robbo Dunk
    Sterling (c) Mcginn Pedro Salah
    Kane(vc) Pukki

    Button Dendoncker Greenwood Kelly

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Raz for safety & Kane for differential i guess

      1. Rajveer
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Currently On Raz but very much inclined towards Kane..Have a feeling he will score big

    2. Francescoli
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Similar situation. I think if you own Kane you need to put it on him. Best striker at home against possibly the worse defence.

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Surely that's Pukki?

        1. Francescoli
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          Chelsea will tighten up 🙂

        2. Rajveer
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          Yeah?

        3. Rajveer
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          U suggesting Pukki for the band?

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 11 Years
            11 months, 19 days ago

            no

            Best striker at home is Pukki though.

      2. pablitosway12
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Same sort of predicament for me also , but I haven’t got sterling.
        I think sterling should be a safe bet.
        Close second = Kane

      3. Rajveer
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Yes..Newcastle looks horrible..Kane(c) is very much tempting

      4. pingissimus
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Fascinated by this worst defence schtick. Liverpool have a worse XGC this season

    3. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Yeah, I have been juggling between Kane and Sterling all week.

      1. Rajveer
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Sterling will give sureshot points..But Kane could score really big

        1. The Dance
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          I have my doubts

  8. pablitosway12
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Afternoon Lads / Ladies from down under

  9. Keep Calm and Play On
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Last choice on the WC

    A) TAA-VVD-Pieters-Soyuncu-Lund
    B) Laporte-VVD-AWB-Lund-Kelly

    VVD could also be Laporte in A)
    Better rotation of 4.5 in B)?

    1. Francescoli
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      B.

      Don't get the Soyuncu love-in

      1. Kiwivillan
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Me neither but Kelly is potentially a trap as well

      2. Keep Calm and Play On
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Me either TBH he just seemed to rotate well with Pieters and Cantwell

    2. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Kelly is at risk from Cahill, No?

      1. Kiwivillan
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Or Sakho LCB Dann moves to RCB

    3. The Man Pastore
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      I prefer B

    4. AicilaXI

      B

      Cheers all B) could also be Digne-VVD-AWB-Pieters-Lund

  10. Gentlemens club
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Anything worth a hit here? Also, play Cathcart, Lundie or Dendoncker?

    Heaton
    VVD TAA Digne Cathcart
    Martial Salah Sterling Mount
    King Vardy

    Pope/Lundie/Dendoncker/Wickham

    1. Keep Calm and Play On
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Don’t like King but how much is ITB? I’d pick Dendonker only because he’s more advanced and Watford haven’t looked great

      1. Gentlemens club
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        0,3

        1. Keep Calm and Play On
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          I know you missed the rise but surely King to Pukki would still be beneficial?

      2. Zlatanzo
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Den is playing Burnley this week

  11. Little Frank
    • 9 Years
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Finally have a WC team I haven't changed for the past hour, so I must be happy with it.

    Pope Button
    Digne AWB Dunk Soyuncu Lundstram
    Sterling KDB Martial Mount Cantwell
    Kane Firmino Pukki

    No Salah or Mane but I'll be captaining Sterling or Kane for the foreseeable future so hopefully it's a gamble that will pay off.

    Thoughts?

    1. Zlatanzo
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Solid. Assuming Dunk/Soyuncu rotate well?

      1. Little Frank
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Well let's just say I'll be watching the game behind a large sofa hoping that Bobby can do the business for me.

        1. Little Frank
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          Oops, meant to reply to comment below. Yes they do rotate well in the short term at least.

    2. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Surely you'll need one of Salah/Mane when they face Newcastle in a couple of GWs.

      1. Baltic Revolution
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 19 days ago

        This

    3. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      V good

  12. Longiss
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Thoughts on Cantwell?
    Wilson + Norwood -> Rashford + Cantwell for a hit?
    0,5 itb

    1. Keep Calm and Play On
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Unlucky to miss the rise/fall, Wilson to Rash is a good move but not sure about it for a hit, depends how long term you’re planning

  13. Baltic Revolution
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Who would you bet on this gameweek?

    A. Perez (shu)
    B. Emerson (nor)

    Obviously not sold on Perez away to a solid Sheffield defence, but Emerson would have me playing a 5-4-1...?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      A if you think Norwich score.

    2. AicilaXI
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 19 days ago

      I'd play Perez.

      1. Baltic Revolution
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Cheers - here's hoping Leicester finally come good...

    SCOUT PICKS CHALLENGE - GAMEWEEK 2 RESULTS

    Back with a bang.... welcome to the first results of the series for Scout Picks Challenge!

    As will probably be a theme this year (again), I am currently in Chicago hence the delay in preparing this but no need to worry, this year I'm modifying the spreadsheet in ways which should *hopefully* make it much easier to update. That'll take a lot less time up for me.

    (I'll also add I had to update the spreadsheet for new teams etc. which I forgot about at the start of the season!)

    Also, great to see a lot of faces - old and new. I hope you all enjoy, and I'll do my best to keep this going properly this year.

    ***** GAMEWEEK RESULTS *****

    1st - Pingissimus (77pts) [3pts]
    Top 4% - MB10 (76pts), Whiskerz (75pts) [2pts]
    Top 10% - Double Trele (70pts), No kane No Gain (69pts), Vobinho (67pts), Polar_Bear (66pts), Van Klinkert Delarosa, FC Jammer (65pts) [1pt]

    with Polska Gola and TheBoose missing out on 64pts!

    Now with a slight adjustment this year - where there are no differentials, to keep the game fair with the Scout's advantage, I'll be substituting the Differentials with their substitutes bench for awarding bonus points.

    In this instance however... they scored exactly 77pts! Therefore no bonus points.

    ***** THE STANDINGS *****

    As you can imagine after the first week of the challenge... your top three are:

    1st - Pingissimus (3pts)
    2nd - MB10, Whiskerz (2pts)

    Hello guys, which one to play?

    A) Pope or Heaton

  18. Zlatanzo
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Don't see many WC teams with Laporte... given the good run of fixtures and easy CSs why not?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      That Zinchenko guy.

      1. Zlatanzo
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Mendy back in training though, only a matter of time before Zinch loses his spot imo

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          or Mendy gets injured.

          1. Zlatanzo
            • 1 Year
            11 months, 19 days ago

            hahaha yeah that's more likely.

    2. Keep Calm and Play On
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Debating getting him in myself

      1. Zlatanzo
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Thinking of ditching VVD for him when fixtures turn for Liverpool. No Liverpool defence may hurt though

        1. Kiwivillan
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          Adrian short term cover and reassess later?

    3. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Kane or Salah, KDB/Sterling more attractive from City and 1 pool def plus Digne taking a lot of Cash, I believe.

    4. mookie
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      They prefer cheap defenders to fit in Kane, Sterling and Mane/Salah.

    SCOUT PICKS CHALLENGE - GAMEWEEK 3

    Friday night game?! We're not getting caught out on those this year!

    Ladies and gentlemen, let's begin SPC GW3.

    ****** WHAT IS IT? ******

    For those of you who haven't been around or aren't aware, every evening prior to the start of the gameweek FFS releases their picks of players for the gameweek, "Scout Picks", as well as 3 differentials before the first games to separate yourself from the crowd.

    This is your way to have a bit of fun and challenge those scout picks with a set of your own (read instructions below). This will always open the day before the gameweek starts around 8pm, and whilst you don't have to play weekly, the more you play the better chance you have of winning!

    ****** INSTRUCTIONS ******

    Everyone can have their own scout picks (there is no limit on team value) but with one simple rule,

    YOU CAN ONLY PICK ONE PLAYER FROM EACH TEAM
    (yes, two of your players at least will be on opposing teams).

    You can only have ONE submission, and your FIRST submission will be what is accepted. You also must respond DIRECTLY to this post (not to a reply on this post). FFS Scout Picks are automatically enrolled. Teams must comply with FPL formation rules and be submitted in an easy to read format, e.g.

    GK
    DEF DEF DEF
    MID MID MID MID
    FOR FOR FOR

    Deadline for this gameweek is Friday 22nd August 2019 at 19:00 BST.

    ****** SCORING ******

    Regardless of number of applicants, scoring will be done by the following:

    1st place: 3 points
    Top 4% of the population will rank "second" and score 2 points.
    Top 10% of the population will rank "third" and score 1 point.

    There is also a bonus point which everyone is eligible for. If you score higher than FFS' Scout Picks AND Differential Picks/Substitutes (i.e. 14 players), you will be awarded with a bonus point regardless of whether you were in the top 10% scoring positions or not.

    Welcome to the game, and good luck.

    ***** THE STANDINGS *****

    Is taking KDB and Sterling too much or one of them will do?

    1. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      more the better

    2. bigbudgie
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Easily both

    3. Zlatanzo
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Definitely not too much, KDB is great value at 9.6 for a ruthless City side in attack.

    4. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Good double act

      KDB Assists
      Sterling scores

      Repeat 20-25 times this season

      Thanks for the comments. Helps a lot

    Pukki is gonna sukki soon enough

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Moise Kean to take over from him soon - one or two more favourable price changes in both directions beforehand

    2. mookie
      • 6 Years

      Imo Norwich looks like a team that will score goals and he certainly looks like he will be involved. That said I'm not getting him(on WC) until fixtures get better.

    3. RubeRx
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      tough to argue with his stats thus far

    4. bigbudgie
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      No player has ever scored 4 goals in the first two premier league games. He's already scored as many hatricks as Salah did last season. Aguero was the only player to score more than one hatrick. But of course, he's Pukki, and he plays for Norwich. The Finnish Messi?

        Behave !!
        Messi is Argentine Pukki
        😛

    5. Valar(Keith)

      He can blank the next 4 games and I'd still have gotten a decent 5 ppg from him 🙂

        11 months, 19 days ago

        haha

        I didn't put much effort into it to be honest, but the sentiment remains 😉

    Assuming Guilbert starts this week for Villa, would you start him or Dendoncker?

    1. TorresMagic™

    Would love to know if Maupay started for definite

    1. Zlatanzo
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Brighton attack looks to be a minefield this season

      1. Kiwivillan
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Yeah would like to stick with gamble on Wesley with upcoming fixtures but -70% Just needs one return. Should've had assist last week but weak finish Trezeguet

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Gone for Trossard myself. Keen to see whether he backs up a good performance last gw.
      Can be a bargain

  26. MadFinCha

    Is Salah to Mane wise???
    Funds created will allow Perez >Martial also

    1. Graham Zusi's Hair is …
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      nope

    2. mookie
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Yes

    3. The Dance
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      I would, Mane bang in form

    4. Any Laporte in a Storm
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Not sure. I did it though. Salah has returned a wee bit slow (for him) and Mane is off well. Will probably swing back and forth again.

      1. MillsAU
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Will get 285 for the season if he keeps scoring at the same rate. Bit slow indeed !

        1. The Dance
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          Mane to equally score just as big

  27. Jacky boy

    Solid backline? On WC
