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.

    On a wildcard. Can you help me choose the best 11m defensive pair to go alongside VVD, Montoya, Lundstram?

    A) Digne & Walker-Peters
    B) Keane & Wan-Bissaka
    C) Other pair up to 11m

    Note: I bought Wan-Bissaka before his rise, just in case I want him.

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      AWB and Emerson?

      1. Sam (Team Sam)
        • 11 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        Definitely an option. You think Chelsea defence will be better than Everton?

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 7 Years
          11 months, 26 days ago

          Yeah but I would have Digne if affordable.

    2. RubeRx
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Consider Emerson over AWB look at his stats and fixtures

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        He can have both

    3. aapoman
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Digne and Boly

      1. Sam (Team Sam)
        • 11 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        Not heard Boly mentioned much. What makes you say him?

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          11 months, 26 days ago

          Don't have him myself but he's prob the best 5m option - arguably best 5m defender in a 'Top eight' team.

  2. BIELSA
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Best 4th mid for 6.6m or less?

    1. Sam (Team Sam)
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Trossard for me

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Mount

    3. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Ceballos.
      One more decent game from him and he’ll be 6 mil+ before you know it and in everyone’s team...

      1. SlipVertonghen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 26 days ago

        This

    4. FOO FIGHTER
      11 months, 26 days ago

      McGinn and Trossard

  3. RubeRx
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Not seeing any Chelsea among those that are WC, they could turn out to be a nice differentials

    Nice run until GW12

    2nd in Chances Created, 3rd in Goal Attempts

    guess they are not in fashion? Emerson, Mount?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Well if you look above I just advice both lol. 🙂

      1. RubeRx
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        glad we are on the same page

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 7 Years
          11 months, 26 days ago

          Yeah , I have Mount and will get Emerson or AWB for Zinc at some point.

    2. how now brown cow

      I have nervously bought mount this week.

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        Welcome aboard.

      2. RubeRx
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        don't be nervous, just enjoy the ride

    3. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Probably a couple of good options for those who play their WCs in 3 or 4 GWs. Right now I'd say any Chelsea assets are too punty. I don't think Frank has settled on his first-choice striker or midfield combo, and their defence isn't solid enough - yet.

    4. Jack Burton
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Got those pair on wc

  4. thepeen555
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Hey peeps, With the exception of the strikers below as I had planned on maybe a Chelsea one and Kean before the start of the season. But seeing how it’s worked out, my team now looks a lot like I was hoping it would. Oh and sterling as I was just going to stick with Kdb but don’t think I can.

    Pope / button
    Vvd, Digne, dunk / Lund 1st sub, Söyüncü.

    Sterling, mane, Kdb, son and Ceballos

    Pukki, Barnes / greenwood

    Thoughts?

    1. amit1964

  5. Lingard’s Shin Guards
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Bottomed

    On wc - Zinchenko or Mina? (no Digne)

    1. thepeen555
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Get Digne. Otherwise Mina is nailed

    2. how now brown cow
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Mina

    3. General_Zod
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Zinc.

      Good luck with Kane.

    4. SPorting
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      No Digne, no doubt.

  6. The Tinkerman
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    G2G?

    Heaton
    TAA, Digne, Montoya, Soyuncu
    Salah(V), Sterling(C), KDB, Martial
    Haller, Jimenez

    Button; Dendo, Greenwood, Rico

    1. how now brown cow
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Good luck. Lovely mids. Interesting to see haller.

    2. Boo Ya Ka Sha
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      WC? Na.. you have Rico. Yeah, that's a cheeky squad. Haller will haul at any moment, same with Jimmy. Solid mid. Balanced def.

    3. Pat Bonner
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Looks good, haller next bandwagon I reckon

  7. Boo Ya Ka Sha
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Rashford, Mount, AWB or Greenwood, Son, Digne

    1. how now brown cow
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      First for now.

  8. how now brown cow
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Happy matchday.

    I'm still pondering....
    A - auba to kane swap
    B - king to pukki swap
    C - both for a hit

    Heaton
    Digne robbo dunk
    Salah sterling mount trossard
    Auba jota king

    What do you think?

    1. Boo Ya Ka Sha
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      A. Since you can just wc Pukki in later after Chelsea.

    2. RubeRx
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      A works for me, but i dont mind the hit

      although its probably not worth it at this point, maybe earlier in the week to get Pukkis rise

    3. Phil's Stamps
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      A

      1. Phil's Stamps
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        or C if you havent taken a hit so far.

  9. General_Zod
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Good article by David on Everton's woes.

    I'd also suggest looking at Siggy's positioning v Watford. We spent most of the match in a 442 with Siggy more advanced than DCL in attempt to keep Watford pinned back and give Gomes and Gbamin a bit more space.

    That changed when Kean came on. His focus wasn't to hold the ball up and develop play, he was keen on spinning the defender to get a shot away.

    Silva said this week that Kean has to understand our values re defending from the front. Therefore, I'm expecting more of the same tonight; tight game, few chances, Kean on for 30 minutes to try and snatch something. Could be too late by then.

    1. Kiwivillan
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      I don't think we're massive underdogs like many are making out. I'd take a score draw right now with Wesley getting on scoresheet for confidence

      1. Annie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        Expectations lowering?

      2. General_Zod
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        Score draw wouldn't surprise me.
        Everton are brilliant at ending awful runs for players so Grealish may end on a winning side in the premiership tonight.

        I think 0 - 0 though personally. We've been very solid but uninspiring.

        1. Kiwivillan
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 26 days ago

          Everton Villa are always good games

  10. Jurgen Flopp
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Looking at Martials stats, would you go with Ceballos with an upgrade in defence to or Martial with a weaker back line?

    A) Ceballos
    Digne AWB* KWP Soyuncu Lundstram

    B) Martial
    Digne KWP Soyuncu Hanley* Lundstram

    1. how now brown cow
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Martial.

  11. Lanley Staurel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Anyone clear on what the threats are to Mounts place in Chelseas first 11?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Barkley and perhaps Pulisic

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Only Barkley at the moment. When RLC and CHO are fit Frank could rejig the midfield.

      1. Lanley Staurel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        Pedro more assured do you reckon?

  12. NUFCAndrew
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Anyone captaining Martial?

    1. Kiwivillan
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      The guy with no bonus points after back to back goals?

    2. Christina.
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      no thanks. dont even own.

    3. Prawnsandwich
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Naah, but think he might have a brace in him vs CRY

    4. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Possibly people without Sterling, Kane, Salah, Mane, Kevin ...... you get the drift.

    5. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Worked out ok for me last week, so I wouldn’t put you off.
      I have had Kane pencilled in for Newcastle though, so won’t tempted this week...

  13. slamdunk
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Final decision who to go for? 

    A-Dunk
    B-Montoya
    C-Other 4.5 Def if so who? 

    Many thanks.

    1. how now brown cow
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      A

    2. Kiwivillan
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      A but he's 4.6 now

    3. General_Zod
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      The Leicester lad Soyunco?
      Montoya stats for misplaced passes arent great for bonuses.

      1. Kiwivillan
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        Leicester have 3 CS in 12 under Rodgers and he's a baps minnow. At least someone like Mings is baps monster and attacking threat on set pieces

        1. General_Zod
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 26 days ago

          Aye, fair point.

        2. AicilaXI
          • 1 Year
          11 months, 26 days ago

          I don't have him, but 3 CS in 12 doesn't really paint the picture properly does it? He's a 4.5. Unless you're doing something wrong, you're only playing him on plum fixtures.

          1. Kiwivillan
            • 6 Years
            11 months, 26 days ago

            You can get someone for 4.5m with much better attacking threat and baps ability

            1. AicilaXI
              • 1 Year
              11 months, 26 days ago

              I agree, yes.

      2. Kiwivillan
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        I agree about Montoya. 1 assist in 2100 mins last season. Dunk far superior

        1. Houldsworth Hatter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 26 days ago

          Although he's a wing back in an attacking side now not a full back in a defensive side.

    4. RubeRx
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      B for me

    5. FALSE PROFIT
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Dunk if you look at last year is not a great pick. Not bad either. I think choices have been made on 2 games and that is not enough

    6. Phil's Stamps
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      B

  14. Ribus
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Play one:
    A) King (MCI)
    B) Lundstram (LEI)
    C) Dendoncker (BUR)

    Thanks

    1. KDB4PREZ
      11 months, 26 days ago

      B/c

    2. amtosh
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      I reckon Lundstram. More upside than the others IMO.

  15. UpAndAway
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Feel like I'm chasing points playing Lundsteam on-field ahead of Dunk? Thoughts?

    1. Fernando Torres
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      I would start Dunk

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      I think you're right. I reckon Lund has peaked already. Mind you, I was wrong about him last week.

    3. Prawnsandwich
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 26 days ago

      He's creating chances, scoring goals, Id play him, and am

          • 7 Years

          Only news of who's fit to play, such as Digne, but no guarantees of who starts yet.

          1. FALSE PROFIT
            • 6 Years

          2. FALSE PROFIT
            • 6 Years

            So no "Salah picked up a hammy in training" type of news?

  17. Bishopool
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Which duo you would choose?

    a) Sterling and Vardy
    b) KDB and Kane

    1. Kiwivillan
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      I sold Vardy to Pukki for a hit last week. Felt great. I'm keep starting seasons with Vardy and he keeps sucking

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      B but I have sterling and kdb

    3. Phil's Stamps
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Probably B

        Haha

    3. Kiwivillan
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      I think he had 1 shot on target from 4 for the goal

    4. Prawnsandwich
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Looked really dangerous, could have got 2-3 last match

  19. MoManeTaa
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    A) Kane and 5.5 MF
    B) Son and 7.0 striker?

          Me? I'm not, but I'm not looking down on those who are.

        It's a forum... Questions are to be asked. I'm genuinely a bit surprised. I guess if you pick a really bad team then you need to use it?

          you can pick a very good side and then decide you want to WC to pick an even better side.

      no.
      used it in gw 2.

      Yes and it feels good. Always use it early

      On it this week. Finally seen the point of going early.

      1. La Roja
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        Then how's she looking? Let's see this beauty 🙂

        1. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          11 months, 26 days ago

          GW 3:

          Henderson
          Maguire, Digne, Boly
          Sterling(c), Mané, Martial, Mount
          Kane(vc), Pukki, Barnes

          Heaton; Lundstram, El Mohamady, Cantwell …T: WC 0.2 ITB, TV: 100.6

          1. La Roja
            • 8 Years
            11 months, 26 days ago

            It looks good, however I would pick AWB instead of Maguire.

            Last Manu set piece goal scored by Newcastle coach.

            1. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              11 months, 26 days ago

              Early days. I don't agree with the assessment of AWB's baps potential, or his attacking threat. And if United don't sort out their set pieces, they will finish 6th or worse, again. And Ashley Young is still there. 🙂

              1. Francescoli
                • 6 Years
                11 months, 26 days ago

                Baseline baps favour AWB. Is it the goal threat that sways you towards Slabhead?

                1. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  11 months, 26 days ago

                  Not only threat, but also baseline baps. 🙂

                  1. Francescoli
                    • 6 Years
                    11 months, 26 days ago

                    Hmm I swear the player comparison showed me the opposite when I looked earlier this week. Maybe I misread.

                    Regarding fixtures, Burnley only have two red fixtures in the coming ten weeks. It’s a sea of blue!

              2. La Roja
                • 8 Years
                11 months, 26 days ago

                How can you not agree on AWB's baps potential

                1. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  11 months, 26 days ago

                  Because we have had two weeks, and Wan-Boussaka has only had 7 recoveries. He will never keep it up. In my opinion.

                  "BaselineBaps" is somebody's guesstimate, by the way.

                • 6 Years
                11 months, 26 days ago

                I thought I would never pick Abe at that price but I have. Passed eyetest with flying colours.

                1. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…

            • 6 Years
            11 months, 26 days ago

            Nice one. Personally I’d want AWB instead of Slabhead and Mee/Tark instead of Boly due to fixtures.

            1. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              11 months, 26 days ago

              Fixtures, eh? OK, let's look at fixtures:

                I still have no idea what any of that means, but where are the Europa League fixtures?

                  I'm only interested in FPL, and if you could see how complicated it is, already ... 🙂

                Doosra could you pull out one more stat,
                Based on your figures and GW1 GW2 results
                what is the accuracy percentage..

            That looks really nice.
            Just the lack of Liverpool defence but something has to give, nice team,

            I’m torn between Maguire and AWB.

          I still have my WC and this weekend will make things much clearer whether I need to change my team or stick with it.

          1. estheblessed
            • 5 Years
            11 months, 26 days ago

            Yes I plan to use it when I really need to. When injuries creep in or when you really see a good game week opportunity and form/personnel is more predictable.

    5. Kiwivillan

  22. FALSE PROFIT
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    A lot to be said for early WC.
    We know lineups by now.
    We should have the Cantrell Lundstums of this world.
    Positions are a lot clearer.
    Neely promoted sides info now available
    Who has hit the ground running.

    1. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Can also start to make a bit of cash, if you pick the right ones that is...

    2. Nomar
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      It’s still too early for me, but I can see the appeal of doing it now for some people.

      Like, Andy Social, I’m not dissing peeps who are using it now. Each to their own, etc.

  23. Francescoli
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Is the Chelsea striker pecking order - Giroud, Tammy and then Bats?

    1. FALSE PROFIT
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Not clear yet

    2. MoManeTaa
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      None of them worth 7.0 imo - cud get maddison or Jimenez for similar price

      1. Francescoli
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        Chelsea have a wunderrun coming up. If they settle on a striker I’d be very tempted.

    3. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      It looks like Tammy was #1, but he's turning out to be too DCL. Batty might be promoted to the first-team squad. Giroud generally isn't a 90 min striker. It's all too uncertain at the moment.

      1. Francescoli
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        Yeah that’s what I thought.... shame.

    4. Kiwivillan
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Even Magic 8 ball doesn't know.

      Lot of Villa fans would disagree but I didn't want to pay +25 million for Tammy.

      Whether he improves with age I just don't think he's PL ready yet

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        Could turn out to be another Dwight Gayle..

        1. Kiwivillan
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 26 days ago

          At least Tammy isn't a petulant count

          1. Galza
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            11 months, 26 days ago

            He is a right little shot...!

        2. Hairy Potter
          • 5 Years

      2. Nomar
        • 10 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        I agree with you, there, Kiwi. I think you might have dodged a bullet by not getting him.

    5. FOO FIGHTER
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Rather not own any of them.

  24. AK_FC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Play Heaton or Pope?

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      11 months, 26 days ago

      I would go Pope. Bonus points if no clean sheet.

    2. SlipVertonghen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Everton can't score for toffee! Go Heaton for this GW.
      Set and forget though, I'd go Pope

  25. The 12th Man
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    On Wild Card. Going no Mane or Salah, I know it’s a risk but I want Sterling,KDB,Kane and Martial plus a decent defence.
    Won’t be captaining any Liverpool Attack with Sterling and Kane in.

    Pope
    VVD,Digne,AWB,Lundstrum
    Sterling(vc),KDB,Martial
    Kane(c),Firmino,Pukki

    Button,Cantwell,Dendonker,Kelly

    Lundstrum,Cantwell and Dendonker will fight it out for the 11 th starting spot.
    Mane is easily obtained within 2 moves.

    1. La Roja
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      If i am on a WC, first name on team sheet would be Mane

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        Digne,Sterling and KDB for me.
        Would love Mane but want Kane for their upcoming games.

        1. Pieterke30
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 26 days ago

          I chose Mané over Martial.

          1. Nomar
            • 10 Years
            11 months, 26 days ago

            The correct move, imo.

          2. The 12th Man
            • 7 Years
            11 months, 26 days ago

            Martial,Firmino > Mane, Greenwood would leave 1.3m for the final spot.

            1. La Roja
              • 8 Years
              11 months, 26 days ago

              Correct move imo

    2. F0oTBall GuRu

      GTG

    3. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Love it!!
      I’m along the same lines, but with a 3-4-3.
      GL mate... 🙂

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        Thanks, yeh it’ll be a 3-4-3 when One of Cantwell Or Dendonker starts.
        You too.

    4. Pieterke30
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      I think those two moves to get Mané are Firmino and Martia out. That’s why im doing it straight away and not gettin Martial

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        Ok that makes sense. Martial,Firmino > Greenwood,Mane makes sense.
        That leaves 1.3 to spend elsewhere.
        Would love another .2 to afford another 5.5 defender instead of Kelly and go 4-4-2.

  26. AnfieldLad
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Perez + King -> Mount + Pukki for free?

    Seems a bit boring and I’ve missed all the price changes

    1. Kizza_10
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Go for it.

    2. La Roja
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      I'd do it yeah

  27. Kizza_10
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Which do you guys prefer ?

    A. Ryan, Laporte, Ceballos

    B. Ederson, Mount, Dunk

    C. Ederson, Walker-Peters, Ceballos

    1. F0oTBall GuRu
      • 1 Year

      B

    2. SlipVertonghen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      A for me

    3. scarlet

      11 months, 26 days ago

      A

  28. Tinmen
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    What player should I take a punt on in fantasy draft folks? I’m ditching Barkley

    Pedro
    James

    1. La Roja
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Neither tbh, Pedro if u must

    2. scarlet
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Pedro (James is a step too far in my view)

  29. scarlet
    • 11 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    Which of Man U defence shall I bring in and why?

    1. SlipVertonghen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 26 days ago

      AWB if you have the £££, Shaw if not

      1. SlipVertonghen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 26 days ago

        Forgot the why... AWB has assist and bonus potential. Shaw assist potential

  30. Jurgen Flopp
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 26 days ago

    I really don't get all this Martial love. I'm a United fan so no accusations of being biased here! I understand he is OOP and cheap, but when has he ever been prolific? Except for when he first burst onto the scene 4 seasons ago. Yes Palace are not the best defensively but we won't exactly steam roll them. We have Lingard/James as our main creators that says it all!

    I would much rather go with Ceballos and use the 2m to upgrade my defence to 2 x 5.5 and take a punt on Kean upfront!

    1. La Roja
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Ok, thats good, one less Martial owner

      1. Pieterke30
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 26 days ago

        Make it two!

        1. La Roja
          • 8 Years
          11 months, 26 days ago

          Even better

    2. mynameisq
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      I'd say he's been pretty prolific if you think about goals per minutes, and he's also played in some very turgid defensive utd sides too, on top of that people forget his age too.

      No need to overthink this, cheap, plays oop for a team expected to challenge for top 4. It won't always be sunshine and rainbows but at that price it's fine

    3. mookie
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Scored 120+ playing ~1600 minutes in last two seasons. Now he's nailed.

    4. Kiwivillan
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 26 days ago

      Will he be prolific at #9. Doesn't always work out. Can be great for team but not necessarily him for FPL

    5. Pieterke30
