Selection

Mount could exploit Norwich defence in Gameweek 3

As a template begins to form in this new Fantasy Premier League season, the value of differentials only increases from week to week.

So far in 2019/20, we have found several initially overlooked budget players offering points potential to their small number of owners.

Gameweek 2 saw Teemu Pukki (£6.8m) and Seamus Coleman (£5.5m) deliver for the differentials crew, registering 17 and five-point hauls respectively.

With this in mind, let’s hope for further success in Gameweek 3.

Mason Mount

Mason Mount got his first senior Chelsea goal against Leicester in Gameweek 2

Price: £6.1m

Ownership: 4.8%

GW3 Opponent: Norwich City (away)

Before August 2019/20, Mason Mount (£6.1m) hadn’t even played a minute of Premier League football and yet in the space of two games, he has already begun to make a name for himself at Stamford Bridge. 

The young midfielder is already displaying the kind of form that steered Derby to the Championship play-off final last season. 

Of course, the Rams fell at the final hurdle but the fact that Frank Lampard managed him then and now is very significant. Whisper it quietly, but is he moulding Mount to follow in his own famous playing style at Chelsea? 

In the first two Gameweeks, Mount ranks second for goal attempts among midfielders priced at £7.0m or less. 

Of course, it’s still early days and he isn’t going to score in every other game but a generous fixture run points towards the potential for Mount to continue his form. 

Up next for Chelsea is a Norwich City team that may have impressed with their attack against Liverpool and Newcastle but who also have a questionable defensive record. 

Even if Chelsea can’t defeat them, I would expect Mount to cause trouble to their unreliable backline.

Yerry Mina

Yerry Mina in action for Everton

Price: £5.6m

Ownership: 4.9%

GW3 Opponent: Aston Villa (away)

Everton started August where they finished off last season, with a continued run of clean sheets. 

After two games they remain the only team yet to concede in the Premier League.

This recent success has been in no small part to centre-back Yerry Mina (£5.6m). 

The Colombian international was blighted by injury during 2018/19 and has quickly become an important defensive asset for Everton in the absence of Kurt Zouma.

So far, Mina is ranked third for FPL points among all defenders at this early stage, despite registering no attacking returns.

The centre-back has claimed bonus points in both Gameweeks thus far for his defensive contributions, also helped by Everton’s attacking players not delivering at the other end of the pitch.

Furthermore, there aren’t many other defenders that boast goals in 29% of their matches on the international stage, which included three goals at the last World Cup. 

However, despite these attacking credentials, he’s had no touches in the final third so far this season. 

For now at least, if you were to buy Mina, it would be for his defensive fortitude and bonus points potential. 

Everton are due to play newly-promoted Aston Villa on Friday night. They may have scored in their first two games, but their team is still in a transitional state and needs time to gel together. 

Luke Shaw

Luke Shaw is one of the more senior figures in Manchester United’s defence this season

Price: £5.5m

Ownership: 2.2%

GW3 Opponent: Crystal Palace (home)

Manchester United’s defence has looked in much better shape this season since the arrival of Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire this summer. 

Solskjaer’s youthful team demolished Chelsea with a comfortable clean sheet win on the opening weekend and it took a Rúben Neves wonder-goal to breach them on Monday night.

Despite all the FPL interest centring around those aforementioned new boys Wan-Bissaka and Maguire, there is still plenty Luke Shaw (£5.5m) can offer.

Despite only being 24, the former Southampton man is one of the ‘elder statesmen’ at Old Trafford. 

He has been there for five years and it was only last season when he finally overcame several challenges and established himself as the club’s first-choice left-back. 

Despite a lacklustre end to their Premier League campaign in May, he was held in such high regard that he was voted the 2018/19 player of the year by Manchester United fans, as well as his team-mates.

He may not have registered any attacking returns so far, but he is beginning to show some early promise with his involvement further up the field. F

Among defenders priced at £5.5m or less, he is ranked as joint eighth for touches in the opponents half (77) and 12th for touches in the final third (41). 

Shaw can certainly build upon his five assists from last season if he continues to get in the right areas and if the in-form Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford can sustain their early clinical touches and goalscoring runs. 

Manchester United are due to host a goal-shy Crystal Palace in Gameweek 3.

The Eagles have not scored at Old Trafford in the Premier League since December 2004 which certainly bodes well for Shaw and his defensive colleagues. 

Also, beyond this game, he has a generous fixture run which further validates his promise as a tantalising differential.

    Anyone else thinking Greenwood could be pushing for a start? When watching United preseason he looked like one of their best players and so clinical in front of goal.

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Can't be any worse than Lingard, it's like playing with 10 men when he's on.

      1. Ramsays Raw Steak
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        Its RAAAAAWWWWW

      2. Lingard’s Shin Guards
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 26 days ago

        🙁

      3. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        Lingard contributes a lot to the team, can’t see him losing his spot any time soon.

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          10 months, 26 days ago

          Check his stats against Wolves.

    2. Keep Calm and Play On
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Think he will be used in Europe, but that doesn’t mean if Martial or Rashford have a knock or if Utd are up by a lot he comes on and bangs one or two in like in pre season

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 26 days ago

      no

    4. blind faith
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Until he actually starts then I'd be reluctant. Can't see him over Martial.

    5. _nod
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      I think he'll get some starts soon, but it won't be regular.

    6. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Wishful thinking I think, will nick the odd goal off the bench.

    7. Mee Pukki-Pukki Long Teemu:…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      I think it is a bit early for him to start, but can see him getting more minutes.
      Lingard, James, Andreas - neither have been pulling up any trees imo.

    8. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Maybe in Europa League and cup games, very unlikely in PL for now.

  2. FISSH
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

    Pulisic or Mount? Money no issue

    1. Hail Hydra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Mount

      1. kovakanada
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        10 months, 26 days ago

        this

    2. Keep Calm and Play On
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Mount

    3. Ramsays Raw Steak
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Mount is the new Michu

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

        I beg your pardon?

        1. Ramsays Raw Steak
          • 2 Years
          10 months, 26 days ago

          I pardon your beg

    4. Pep Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Flashy get 😀 I'd go Mount too

    5. Dananz
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Money will be an issue at some point. Mount.

  3. blind faith
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

    Pope - Ryan
    AWB - Mina - Lund - Soyuncu - Kelly
    Sterling - KDB - Mane - Martial - Cantwell
    Rashford - Pukki - Barnes

    Thoughts?

    Or I could do
    Pope, Barnes, Rashford to Button, Wickham/Greenwood, Kane (but don't like not having playing options on the bench)

  4. _nod
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

    I'd be crazy to captain Son over Sterling. Right?

    1. Bazroy99
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Yes

    2. BEARZINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Yes... will he start or come on 2nd half? Spurs don’t need him vs Newcastle so could be eased back

    3. blind faith
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Crazy

    4. Keep Calm and Play On
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Yes it’s a big risk at this stage he may only play 30 yet he could also score a brace...depends if you want a differential or not

    5. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Correct.

    6. _nod
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Cheers everyone. Not sure I need the differential at this point of the season.

    7. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 26 days ago

      yes

    8. Ramsays Raw Steak
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      No

    9. ZACTAY
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      I think just owning Son is enough of a differential if he does anything this weekend so maybe just play it safe with Sterling.

  5. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

    G2G chaps?

    Ryan

    Robertson - Zinchenko - Digne - AWB

    Salah - KDB - Richarlison - Ceballos

    Kane (C) - Pukki

    Bench: Pope; Dendoncker; Greenwood; Smith

    1. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…

      Sweet Peas! gl

  6. Hail Hydra
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

    Play Wilson or Barnes (-4)?

    1. Mee Pukki-Pukki Long Teemu:…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Wilson

  7. pundit of punts
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

    RMWCT. I'm all set now. 😀

    Pope
    Laporte - AWB - Zinchenko
    Sterling - Mane - Martial - Lanzini - Mount
    Kane - Pukki

    Woodman - Lundstram - Wickham - Hanley

    1. DantheManinaPan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      You certain about Kane?

      Aside from this week, I'd prefer KDB + cash in the long run

      1. pundit of punts
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        Very much. Great captaincy option this gw.

        KDB will get pushed back into midfield often with Mahrez playing. His returns usually diminish then. Was part of the front 3 las gw and hence the increased involvement.

    2. JollyGoodYellows
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Like it a lot! Lanzini is a great shout. Zinchenko might need to go when Mendy is fully fit.

      1. pundit of punts
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        Cheers. Will swap Zinch for the flavour of the month 5.5 def if that happens.

        1. JollyGoodYellows
          • 1 Year
          10 months, 26 days ago

          Yep, monitor Bilva as well as I fancy him to bag over the coming weeks.

        2. Zenith UK
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 26 days ago

          Easy switch to Mina (if you've anything ITB)

    3. Yome
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      No KDB...

      1. pundit of punts
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        My reasoning for not picking him is below. He also compels me to downgrade the defense to barebones.

        1. pundit of punts
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 26 days ago

          *above

    4. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 26 days ago

      that bench will bite you before long

      1. pundit of punts
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        With that starting 11, I will need the bench once in a blue moon. And, there're FTs as well.

    5. Jack Burton
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Nice I'm not going for Kbd either

    6. Zenith UK
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Greenwood over Wickham. Nice team.

  8. Pep Pig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

    I can't help but think (hope) the double Liverpool defence is still going to prosper. My hope is that will be the plus side to me not using an early WC. It's going to be a very interesting few weeks and it's much more exciting seeing things change.

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 26 days ago

      38 game sample size vs 2 game sample size - pick one!

      1. DantheManinaPan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        OK but look at the first half of last season compared with the second half for example.

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

        Strange comment to my opinion. I don't need to pick one... I just said it's going to ve very interesting

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

      Double City defense is where it's at for the next 10 or so gws.

      1. Here Comes The Son ★
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        Nah, because you're missing out on double City attack.

    3. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      I'm with you. A clean sheet, and just as importantly, a solid performance against Arsenal, then its Burnley and Newcastle. Suddenly Alexander-Arnold, Robertson, van Dijk etc look key again.

      1. Pep Pig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        I'd expect nothing less Mr Villa

      2. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 26 days ago

        I can see Burnley scoring, Newcastle not so much.

      3. Mee Pukki-Pukki Long Teemu:…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        I don’t think they will keep a CS against Arsenal, but Hoping for at least one attacking return from either of the full backs at least.
        Regardless I’m still holding on to both until GW 5 at least.

    4. Mee Pukki-Pukki Long Teemu:…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      I’m still on the fence. All I know is that it has the potential to cost you big if they don’t improve. You won’t be selling before Burnley or Newcastle. I have 14m invested, so it will cost me big if they won’t deliver

      1. Pep Pig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        I don't expect City or Liverpool to acheive the same amount of CS as last season but the Liverpool defence will always have that attacking threat

    5. Here Comes The Son ★
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Agreed.

      The opening games have probably been the best case scenario long term. Think of all the people that have ditched Liverpool defence. Sounds good to me.

      1. Pep Pig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        That's the one mate. Though I'm seeing some very tasty WC teams without the double but only time will tell. It will certainly make any Liverpool CS in the near future gold

        1. Here Comes The Son ★
          • 2 Years
          10 months, 26 days ago

          Huge week isn't it.

          If they somehow get through this game with a clean sheet, they suddenly look very healthy with Burnley and Newcastle up next. The expectancy is insane when you consider TAA & VVD already have attacking returns. Also Robertson has been through on goal. Mental.

          1. Zenith UK
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            10 months, 26 days ago

            Thing is it's like, let's say your budget is 15M (TAA + 8M mid - Siggy/Richar) will that outscore KDB & AWB I don't think so personally. So it's not just the Liverpool defender you're losing because you're strengthening elsewhere.

  9. JollyGoodYellows
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 26 days ago

    Who to play out of McGinn and Soyuncu (have Digne and fancy EVE for a clean sheet)?

    1. Pep Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      I have Digne too but I wouldn't want to bench McGinn

      1. JollyGoodYellows
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 26 days ago

        Soyuncu looks good though - at least I'm having this kind of selection headache!

    2. Keep Calm and Play On
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      McGinn

    3. Benster
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Now way bench McGinn. I think he could bag a brace tonight

      1. JollyGoodYellows
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 26 days ago

        That's decided then. Soyuncu is benched

    6. Klaren

      • 2 Years

      If you have Salah as well A, if not B.

    7. Dananz
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      So hard! I'd lean towards B for balance but Kane probably the stronger captain pick.

  12. ChuckN
    • 10 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

    After 1000 drafts think I'm set on final WC team. Have decided to go without Mane/Salah. No doubt will regret it. Thoughts?

    0.6 ITB

    Pope
    TAA Digne Laporte AWB
    Sterling KdB Martial Mount
    Kane Pukki

      10 months, 26 days ago

      Yeah, lack of Pool attack is worrying tbh. Other than that it's a great team. But that 'other' is a big one!! Persobally I'm not brave enough for that......

    2. BEARZINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Theres a Salah / Mane size hole in your team... did you watch them in the last 2 games?!

      1. ChuckN
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        Will likely bring 1 in for Kane in a few weeks though.

    3. Bird Raymond
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Don't bother with Greenwood. You've already quite rightly got AWB and Martial, you might find you want a 3rd Utd player somewhere down the line. I'm not convinced on Mount yet but bit as good a punt as any in that price range. Other than that looks good.

  13. NED KELLY
    • 8 Years

    I'd go Laporte till Allison comes back

  14. Benster
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

    I need to choose 1 of these to play this weekend:

    A. Cantwell (CHE)
    B. Lundstram (LEI)
    C. Dendonker (BUR)

    1. Coys96
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      A

    2. DantheManinaPan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      B for me.

      Sheff Utd clean sheet odds probably higher than the odds of one of those getting attacking returns

    3. Mee Pukki-Pukki Long Teemu:…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Tough call between A and B.
      Not C at least imo

    4. Norrin Radd
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      A. Most attacking player.

    5. Benster
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Thanks all. Tough one but tempted by A then

    6. La Vida Latte
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B

        King Pukki

      2. JollyGoodYellows

        Fancy Pukki to bag a brace against Chelsea

    • LLoris

      A King to mount

        He's got a mean shot on him. Scored last week, just been watching a training video and he's been at it again.

    • Kizza_10
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Is their any changes you’d make to this wildcard team ?

      Pope
      Zinchenko VVD Mina
      Cabellos KDB Salah Sterling Mount
      Rashford Pukki

      Subs: Button, Lundstram, Kelly, Greenwood

      1. La Vida Latte
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        Looks good. I think Ceballos and Mount are too fresh in PL to jump on myself, but one has to take some chances!

    • jblakes
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Is Kane essential long term or are people looking at son instead?

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        A good option yes, essential no.

      2. NED KELLY
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        I think Kane is essential long term

      3. EMBOLOFAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 26 days ago

        lol no

      4. Ramsays Raw Steak

      5. OLLY G
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        I'm going for Son. I think he could match Kane's tally or be slightly behind but saving 1.5m would give you overall value. Plus he has such low ownership. You've got to gamble a little to really move up the ranks.

      6. BEARZINHO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 26 days ago

        I don't think he is close to essential in the same way sterling or salah / mane are... with kdb back this year i’ll orob go all season without kane

      7. Benster
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        The next two games will be telling I think. I'm going Bobby + Kane on my WC but could easily switch to Mane + Son with only 0.5 to find if that looks the better option.....

      8. Pukki Party
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        No way, Sterling Salah still best two big hitters

    • Dananz

      On WC, still indecisive!

      How does this look?

      Pope
      TAA, Zinch, AWB, KWP
      Salah, Sterling, Mount, Ceballos
      Kane, Rashford

      Button, Greenwood, Donck, Lundstram. 0.0 ITB

        2. Dananz
          • 4 Years

          Yeah I guess that's somewhat reassuring...

      2. BEARZINHO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 26 days ago

        Very nice. I like it a lot... can you afford rashford to pukki and mount to martial?

        1. Dananz
          • 4 Years
          10 months, 26 days ago

          Cheers! Not sure. I'm (for better or worse) a Top-6 snob with my starting outfielders, so unfortunately Pukki doesn't fit the bill. But I've been going back and forth between Martial and Rashford all week. I think Rashford is a bit of a gut pick. Pretty content with Mount too, but Ceballos is the one that feels most punty for me. But he's cheap so no major tragedy if it goes wrong I guess.

          I also really wanted Emerson in there somewhere, but can't really justify him over the other picks.
