All FPL talking points from the latest EFL Cup matches

Premier League clubs finished their involvement in the third round of the EFL Cup on Wednesday night.

Burnley and Newcastle were knocked out while Everton, Leicester and Bournemouth booked their places in the fourth round.

We’ve rounded up all the Fantasy implications from the latest matches in the competition.

Burnley 1-3 Sunderland

Burnley were stunned by League One Sunderland on Wednesday night

Goals: Jay Rodriguez (£5.8m)

Assists: Matej Vydra (£5.4m)

Sean Dyche made 10 changes to his Burnley side as they were humbled at home by League One outfit Sunderland.

Left-midfielder Dwight McNeil (£6.0m) was the only member of Sunday’s starting line-up to keep his place and he registered a 90-minute outing.

The Clarets started the better side, Jay Rodriguez (£5.8m) getting the first goal of his second spell at Turf Moor, assisted by strike-partner on the night Matej Vydra (£5.4m).

Aaron Lennon (£4.9m) and Vydra both hit the post, but visitors Sunderland stunned Burnley with two second-half goals in three minutes after Will Grigg had levelled things up in the first period.

Given Sean Dyche’s selection, it was further confirmation of several Burnley players being among the second string.

Centre-back Ben Gibson (£4.0m) is yet to register a Premier League minute in 2019/20 but played 90 minutes against Sunderland, as did Kevin Long (£4.5m).

Charlie Taylor (£4.4m) is in a similar situation. It had been thought he would be the first-choice left-back earlier in the summer, but the setback of a pre-season injury seems to have dropped him into the seconds. He also played 90 minutes against Sunderland, while Erik Pieters (£4.6m) has started every league match in his place.

There was also a Burnley debut for Danny Drinkwater (£4.5m).

However, it does look as if Lennon will play a part in Gameweek 4 after Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£6.0m) came off injured against Wolves.

“We took Azza (Aaron Lennon) off as a precaution because Johann almost definitely won’t be ready for the weekend.” – Sean Dyche

This cup exit is probably also good news for Burnley assets as they now have no tournaments to distract them from the Premier League between now and January.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Hart; C Taylor, Gibson, K Long, Bardsley (Lowton 78′); McNeil, Drinkwater, Hendrick, Lennon (Wood 69′); Vydra, Rodriguez.

Lincoln City 2-4 Everton

Everton celebrate Alex Iwobi’s first goal for the club in the win over Lincoln City

Goals: Lucas Digne (£6.0m), Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.8m), Alex Iwobi (£5.9m), Richarlison (£7.9m)

Assists: Cenk Tosun (£5.8m), Digne

Concerns about regression in Everton’s defence were furthered on Wednesday night as they conceded twice to League One Lincoln City.

Marco Silva did not make too many changes at the back, only Yerry Mina (£5.6m) and Seamus Coleman (£5.5m) dropping out of the side.

Mason Holgate (£4.5m) and Djibril Sidibé (£5.4m) came in for them while Jordan Pickford (£5.6m), Michael Keane (£5.5m) and Lucas Digne (£6.0m) all kept their places.

However, that didn’t stop the Imps from finding the net twice, through Harry Anderson and Bruno Andrade.

It must be mentioned that both Lincoln goals came down Everton’s right, with Sidibé arguably at fault each time.

Furthermore, Digne reminded Fantasy managers of what he is capable of at the other end of the field, by placing home an exquisite free-kick in the 36th minute.

There might be some concern from his owners that the Frenchman played all 90 minutes of this match with Leighton Baines (£4.9m) left on the bench, but Everton’s Gameweek 4 match is not until Sunday so he should probably recover in time to start once again.

As much as it might be disheartening to see Everton concede twice to League One opposition, at least they displayed some threat in front of goal after a laboured start to the Premier League campaign.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.8m) converted a second-half penalty after Morgan Schneiderlin (£4.5m) was fouled before Alex Iwobi (£5.9m) and Richarlison (£7.9m) netted headers in the final 10 minutes, the latter assisted by Digne.

Everton XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Digne, Holgate, Keane, Sidibé; Delph (Calvert-Lewin 74′), Schneiderlin; Iwobi (Walcott 82′), Sigurdsson, Richarlison; Kean (Tosun 74′).

Newcastle 1-1 Leicester
2-4 on penalties

Leicester players celebrate their penalty shoot-out win over Newcastle United

Goals: Yoshinori Muto (£5.4m) | James Maddison (£7.0m)

Assists: Jetro Willems (£4.5m)

Owners of Leicester City assets might be a little worried by Brendan Rodgers’ team selection in the EFL Cup penalty shoot-out victory over Newcastle.

Having proclaimed a desire to win a cup competition this season, he made just two changes from the team that beat Sheffield United in Gameweek 3, Harvey Barnes (£5.9m) coming in for Dennis Praet (£5.5m) and Wes Morgan (£4.4m) replacing Jonny Evans (£5.0m) at centre-back.

Key figures such as Jamie Vardy (£8.9m), Youri Tielemans (£6.4m), Ayoze Pérez (£6.4m) and James Maddison (£7.0m) all playing 90 minutes again.

Unlike Everton, the Foxes’ next fixture is at 3pm on Saturday, so it will be interesting to see if there are any adverse effects in terms of fitness.

Thankfully for those invested in key Leicester attackers, this match, despite going to a penalty shoot-out, did not feature any extra-time first.

Maddison reminded Fantasy managers of his threat from set-pieces as his free-kick was deflected into the net during the first half.

However, once again, Leicester failed to particularly impress going forward, just three shots on target amassed between them and their hosts on Wednesday night.

The fact that Newcastle made seven changes to their first-team selection that beat Spurs on Sunday probably adds further distrust to Leicester’s attack from a Fantasy perspective.

Jamaal Lascelles (£4.5m) remained on the bench after picking up an injury in Gameweek 3, while Joelinton (£5.9m) and Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.5m).

The Magpies’ injury crisis also worsened when Matt Ritchie (£5.5m) had to be replaced at half-time following a bad challenge from Hamza Choudhury (£4.5m).

Manager Steve Bruce confirmed after the game that Jetro Willems (£4.5m) and Emil Krafth (£4.5m) were taken off because of injuries. Miguel Almirón (£6.0m) also missed the game with an ankle problem.

Newcastle United XI (5-4-1): Darlow; Willems (Dummett 78′), Clark, Fernandez, Schär, Krafth (Manquillo 50′); Ritchie (Atsu 45+3′), Hayden, Shelvey, M Longstaff; Muto.

Leicester City XI (4-4-1-1): Schmeichel; Fuchs, Söyüncü, Morgan (Evans 57′), R Pereira; H Barnes, Tielemans, Choudhury (Praet 46′), A Pérez; Maddison; Vardy.

Bournemouth 0-0 Forest Green Rovers
3-0 on penalties

Mark Travers was the penalty shoot-out hero for Bournemouth

Goals: None

Assists: None

Eddie Howe rang the changes to his Bournemouth side as they had to beat Forest Green Rovers on penalties. However, Callum Wilson (£7.9m) still played the first hour of the EFL Cup tie.

The Cherries created plenty of chances against the League Two outfit and were often denied by goalkeeper Joe Wollacott.

He produced saves to stop Harry Wilson (£6.0m) and Jordon Ibe (£4.9m) in the first half before denying substitute Joshua King (£6.4m) twice in the second.

Jack Stacey (£4.4m), making his debut at right-back, also hit the post following a venture forward.

Forest Green weren’t without their chances in the match, Junior Mondal blasting over from 12-yards in the second half, while Andrew Surman (£4.9m) had to clear a Matt Stevens shot off the line.

Mark Travers (£4.4m) was the hero in the penalty shoot-out as he saved all three spot-kicks he faced, King, Dominic Solanke (£5.4m) and Philip Billing (£5.0m) scoring theirs for Bournemouth.

AFC Bournemouth XI (4-4-2): Travers; Rico, Simpson, Mepham, Stacey; Ibe, Surman, Kilkenny (Billing 84′), H Wilson (Fraser 61′); Solanke, C Wilson (J King 60′).

    Made a few changes on my WC..

    Thoughts?

    Pope

    Trent - Digne - Zinch

    Ceballos - Salah - Sterling - KDB - Mount

    Pukki - Haller

    Subs: Button / Greenwood / Lundstram / Kelly

      Looks great

    2. Jarvish Scott Talent

      Terry Template esquire. I wouldn't want that bench for likely 30ish GWs, but I seem to be in the minority on this. Good luck 🙂

    3. Indio

      I like it.

      Very Nice team mate!!! Personally I think I’d go McGinn or Cantwell instead of Cellebos

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        *Cantwell and upgrade Kelly?

      2. Here Comes The Son ★
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        He will be playing his 5th mid most weeks looking at his bench. Ceballos is worth the extra mill for this reason.

    5. Totti
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      don't like zinchencko as mendy starting training already with the group
      why don't u consider aguero?

    6. luk46
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Nice team, Ceballos > Cantwell to do Kelly > Soyüncü or Zinchenko > Laporte even though hes a great option, but not as nailed on? Could also try Emerson...

    7. Fortune
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      can you do ceballos > buendia
      greenwood > 4.4m fwd might help

  2. FOO FIGHTER
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Which formation will be better long term this season?

      352 or 343?

      1. yakirh
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        3-5-2

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Think being flexible between the two with Cantwell as the fifth mid might pay off.

      3. Brooksy86
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Both good. Even 442 when cleanies start to come

      4. Warby84
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        3-5-2 / 4-4-2 for me on rotation

        1. CROCosta
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Same here, basically rotation for 11th player between Cantwell/Lund/Kelly and 3-4-2 nailed each week

    • Prison Mike
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Is it worth including Zinchenko on wildcard or is it risky now Mendy is back training?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Prefer Emerson or even PVA over Zinc personally. Angelino and Cancelo lurking too.

      2. CROCosta
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I am going for Zinchenko for now with plan to switch him to Emerson or Maitland-Niles if he starts being rotated once CL starts and Mendy is fully fit but for next 3 or so gws I think he is pretty nailed, Cancelo is more of a threat to Walker then Zinch

      Are we even gonna get a Martial confirmation this gw? Whats going on with him

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        He had a scan earlier but we haven't had the results back.

      2. Warby84

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Very hard to say. If he was fit with certainty, ManU would have confirmed it imo. And this is just my own personal view, therefore not to be trusted 😉

      4. Warby84
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        If anyone is not sure or can’t remember Darren Anderton that was his nickname..

      5. Jarvish Scott Talent
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Should be a presser tomorrow, though Gollum will probably drone on about 1999 and how all his players are going to get lots of game-time and score lots of goals.

      6. insertcomedyname
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        The fact Utd have sanctioned the Sanchez move surely means it can't be that bad.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          that just means Sanchez was that bad 😉

      Sad that Ashley Barnes won't get an England call up. Not fashionable enough. That West country drawl and no nonsense style no match for somebody with a nice haircut at a big club.

          No he once featured for their u20s but that's it. He's ineligible for them even.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Any chance we could get a 'latest injury news' widget on the home page? Would hopefully stem the flow of 'Is Martial fit?' questions.

      Wouldn't have to be extensive, just maybe key notes on the top 5 or so flagged players.

      1. amitmishr
        • 4 Years

        Same for mount as well, but news that he is training is good, so far

        Is guilbert nailed? Him instead of soya Would allow me a shift from zinchenko to digne.
        Prefer cantwell in short term, lanzini over longer term. Think at some point, Norwich might ditch the open game to reduce goals and losses

      6. luk46
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 23 days ago

        2B, but depends on the rest of your team obvs

        1A. Guilbert is my differential. I think he's now nailed.

        Both.

        Neither.

      9. Bram
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        2B but Cantwell over Lanzini is really just a financial/value call as both look decent options.

    • FOMFF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Which looks best for long term on a WC?
      A.Coleman, TAA, Martial & Mount
      B. Digne, TAA, Martial & Cantwell

        B

      4. amitmishr
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        A costs 1mn more, so b

      5. CROCosta
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 23 days ago

        B is 1mil cheaper so depends on where you put this extra mil

          • 4 Years

          That is the question. Maybe a city defender but I'm probably going for 352 and already got 2 premium def

      Afternoon all!!! And best of luck for the coming weekend!!!
      Already did Rico to Soy Souce...
      Anything here for -4???
      Have the exact money to do Jota to Haller and keep Martial, could do Martial to Mount or Cantwell and upgrade Wickham the week after to Barnes or Haller and keep Jota... Any ideas??
      Heaton
      TAA Digne Söyüncü

      who do u rather guys?

      A) VVD barnes
      B) Matip halle

      1. Goodish
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 23 days ago

        All good options. Think Matip will benefit from VVD being marked tightly as we saw against Arsenal. I would choose B but A is safer.

        1. Totti
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          i'm afraid that gomez might take his place

    • unitednations
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Right folks, quick here on the best course of action with 1ft and 0m

      Heaton — Pope
      Taa vvd digne zincheko — rico
      Sterling kdb martial Perez — Dendocker
      King Kane — wickham

      A: Perez + king >> mcginn + pukki (-4)..but will need rico/docker if martial out
      B: Martial + wickham >> Cantwell + Pukki (-4)
      C: Something else..save FT as pukki has city in gw5

      1. Ëð
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I think A provided Martial is fit. Pukki close to essential at the moment.

    • Zilla
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I have Martial and Mount, don't want to sell them so thinking Dendo > Cantwell as a first on bench option for a FT.

      yay or nay?

        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Is there nothing more pressing to address? I'm just not sure that move is worth wasting a FT on.

        1. Zilla
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Henderson
          Robertson VVD Zinch AWB
          Salah Sterling Martial Mount
          Vardy Pukki

          Well, you could argue defence needs bit of fixing but can't address that for with little data.

          1. Ëð
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Are you still happy with Vardy? Otherwise I'd do your above move or save the transfer.

            1. Zilla
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Until the next mid-priced forward emerges then he will be my go to. Thanks mate, could be possible that I save and reassess next GW

        1.is it likely that martial will play 60mins+
        2. A)king to haller for -4
        B)montaya to emerson for -4

        only one of the two mentioned will start?

        Thoughts on this move as I am on WC?

        a. Barnes > Jota

        b. Just play Barnes

        2. Totti
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          try to get haller this week
          and if he didn't perform well, get barnes instead

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            havent got enough funds for Haller so looks like Barnes play LIV it is lol

        Why is James’ ownership so low? Don’t follow MNU. Curious.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Other options at that price point // People prefer Martial for UTD midfield // Unsure if he's nailed at start of season (although looks likely that he is now).

          Concerns over minutes maybe. Could be a great differential, bags of potential

          That equaliser celebration against palace I think.

              Full mbappe for an equaliser at home to palace?! Hate to sound all yer da but fergie would have dropped him for next game, no question. Don't think ole has that luxury though tbf

          Usually exciting daily pictures of them turning their black SUVs left into the training ground car park.

        Would you do this for a -4?

        Ederson, VVD, Perez -> Pope, Soyuncu, KDB

        Rest of team:

        Ederson*, Button
        Robertson, VVD*, Digne, Zinchenko, Lundstrum
        Salah, Sterling, Perez*, Martial, Dendoncker
        Pukki, King, Greenwood

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          No. I'd want King out along with Perez. Barnes?

            • 4 Years

            Doubling up on City attack looking fairly urgent currently don't you think?

                • 4 Years
                1 month, 23 days ago

                I could do Ederson, VVD, Perez, King -> Pope, Soyuncu, KDB, Barnes for -8.

        1 month, 23 days ago

        For a -8?

        Kane, Siggy, Perez ----> Haller, Salah, Ceballos

        Alternatively could leave Perez and just do Kane + Siggy for Haller and Mane for a -4

          Strong smell of points chasing either way.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Wouldn't say moving to get a Liverpool attacker is points chasing. More like an essential
