How the Champions League and Europa League could affect FPL assets

The UEFA Champions League and Europa League group stages get underway on the other side of the international break.

The first ties take place in between Gameweeks 5 and 6, with the final group matches scheduled for mid-December.

The seven Premier League sides involved in European competition will also enter the Carabao Cup at the third round stage and, if these clubs progress to the quarter-final of that competition, they will play twice a week, every week, from now until the turn of 2020 – with the exception of the international breaks.

Four of the “big six” sit in the top seven of our Season Ticker over the next six Gameweeks (we’ll be Frisking the Fixtures over the international break) and players from these teams may be dominating Fantasy managers’ thoughts when it comes to transfers and Wildcards.

With that in mind, we thought it was worth a look at the fixture schedule for Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers over the next two months, given that all of these teams are still involved in European competition.

We have stopped at the end of October as the TV fixtures for November and beyond have yet to be announced, so there is a lot of rejigging to the Premier League calendar still to factor in.

We’ve had a fairly easy ride in the first month of 2019/20 but rotation may start to become more of an issue with all seven of the aforementioned sides competing on multiple fronts.

Jurgen Klopp said of his squad ahead of Gameweek 4:

We need them all, we need them all 100%. It is the very first part of the season, the first four Premier League games, and we had a busier schedule than other teams but still not that busy during the week.

That will all come afterwards, so no reason for resting players at the moment. It is about finding rhythm, finding the mood again, that we do the right things in the right moment. It is not the moment for a lot of changes.

After this international break, that will change completely. In the moment, the defensive set-up or whatever, as always, it is about who is in the best shape.

We have had a full week to train and when the boys won the last game and showed me then that they are still in their best possible shape, then we will only think about a couple of really small changes.

Pep Guardiola, when asked about Joao Cancelo (£5.4m), also said last week:

When we come back from the international break, we have Norwich, after three days, we have to travel to Ukraine, after three days we have a game here, then Carabao Cup. Start the real season in terms of a lot of games.

Joao, we’re delighted what we have seen but arrived late so was not in pre-season. Joao started to understand what to do. And now, maybe tomorrow, maybe after the international break, he start to play. He has to be ready.

Wolves, one of the most settled sides of 2018/19, have already been in midweek European action this season and some Fantasy managers have already suffered the consequences of Nuno Espirito Santo’s Europa League-influence rotation: Diogo Jota (£6.4m), Jonny (£5.5m), Leander Dendoncker (£4.5m) and Joao Moutinho (£5.5m) have all been benched once in the league already.


Below is a club-by-club itinerary for September and October, with the fixtures in italics Champions League/Europa League/Carabao Cup ties.

            I would upgrade that defence with the money you have left.

              Good call. That’s my plan next week.

              To be fair they have some good fixtures this time.

    3. Miguel Sanchez

        I'm not sure tbh.

  4. Danstoke82
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 6 days ago

    Which two City players to have on my current WC team to go alongside Salah?

    A) Sterling
    B) KDB
    C) Aguero

    Currently have A + B but not owning Aguero is worrying me slightly

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      A and B safest

      1. Danstoke82
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 6 days ago

        No Kun you feel is a good move? My current front 3 are Barnes-Pukki-Haller

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 6 days ago

          Dunno about good move but you can't have them all. Think Aguero could be very dangerous next couple of GWs but then Jesus will start eating into his minutes again.

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            11 months, 6 days ago

            We do not know though how Pep roulette is going to happen this season.

            If Kun has the same amount of minutes as last season which works out to less than 3 games compared to what Sterling had them I am happy with that. Kun was also injured for 4 GW's last season. Could have easily outscored Sterling with points.

            Aguero is in beast form, yes He has Jesus wanting minutes but Sterling has Mahrez and Bilva wanting minutes too if Pep had to start with Jesus and Aguero.

            Guess the picture will become clearer once Jesus is fit again.

            1. Miguel Sanchez
              • 4 Years
              11 months, 6 days ago

              Will be interesting if Aguero starts against Norwich and then Jesus plays the Champions league game midweek as it could setup a little run of league games for Aguero (nor, WAT, eve) with Jesus (shk, pne) playing the midweek cup games.

              1. FOO FIGHTER
                11 months, 6 days ago

                Yeah, going to be very interesting to see.

                Thank heavens I can just go Aguero out, Sterling in if things go down the pan for Aguero but you want a player with his form on the pitch. Looks like he will score in every game at the moment.

                1. Miguel Sanchez
                  • 4 Years
                  11 months, 6 days ago

                  I have both but am only considering capping Aguero between them right now. Who knows how many goals he could get if he starts vs both of Norwich and Watford.

                  1. FOO FIGHTER

    2. wasp3000
      • 5 Years

      A and B. I feel the mid priced forwards are the way to go and Kun may get rotated without jesus over CL schedule

    3. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      A B for me

  5. Salah4Ever
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 6 days ago

    So i didn t see any aston villla games, so can someone tell me is worth to get mcginn or wesley for the upcoming fixtures . And which would you prefer?

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      11 months, 6 days ago

      Not sure on Wesley but have a look at McGinn's price. You cannot go wrong having him as a 5th midfielder.

      1. Salah4Ever
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 6 days ago

        it is cantwell to mcginn or greenwood to wesley, or just play lundstram

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          11 months, 6 days ago

          Not sold on Wesley. I have Greenwood on my bench and was thinking to trade him for Ayew but that money is better off upgrading my defence. How many times does one use their 3rd sub? Greenwood can do his job as 3rd sub for the rest of the season unless I have to move on Aguero.

          I want to move on Cantwell as do not want a Norwich double up with Pukki. I can upgrade Cantwell too.

          McGinn a decent option for your 5th midfielder. His job is to keep on making the points tick over.

    2. Trossard or not Trossard
      11 months, 6 days ago

      Pick Grealish like me if you like getting robbed. McGinn and even Trezeguet are better picks than Wesley imo.

    I am in strange conundrum here. I would ideally want to wait till the end of international break to make my transfers but it seems I will get priced out of my planned moves due to Jota's imminent price drop.

    Should I do Jota + Wan Bissaka -> Barnes + Otamendi now to avoid getting priced out?

    Or

    Should I wait till the press conferences and then probably do Jota + Wan Bissaka -> Barnes + 5.0 Defender?

    1. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…
      • 2 Years

      Roll the dice, get the players you want.
      Be bold and live life to the full.

    2. Hazardous Matarial

      Otamendi is in the Argentina squad..

    Salah, Sterling and KDB are making fantasy teams so boring, feeling like you have to have those 3 really takes the soul and character out your team.
    I want to explore players like Son, Pepe, Auba, Aguero but the way the prices are your basically foolish to risk it.

    I feel like Auba is ofc going to be a good pick for the season, and Son and probably Pepe will explode soon enough but it will be nightmare trying to get them in.

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      No one is forcing you to have all 3. If you drop one of Salah and Sterling you can have several differentials in the Son/Pepe/Vardy range

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 6 days ago

        yea I know, its just their scary ownership. I wish not so many people went with those 3.
        But yea thats not me tbh, so I doubt I will conform ^^

    3. Salah4Ever
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 6 days ago

      I was thinking the same but the city fixtures are as good as Arsenal fixtures so need to stick to the better team, just waiting for Pep to start his roulette and everyone will go crazy

    4. True Deadzoner
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      lol who force you??

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 6 days ago

        u have an 8 next to your name, you surely understand the concept of ownership right? Their ownership amongst the top managers pretty much determines their inclusion in your team...

        1. Albrightondknight
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 6 days ago

          Not if they all get it wrong and you get it right.
          Following ownership will get you a good rank but breaking from the mould has potential for great success but of course abject failure too 🙂

    5. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      I have Sterling KDB Mane and Son and I don't think the team is that poor elsewhere
      Having Salah over Mane would of course mean further sacrifices in defence or up front.

    6. Markus
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      I think one of salah/sterling is definitely losable. Sterling if you go for aguero instead, salah based on pretty rubbish fixtures after Newcastle, which essentially gets you two mid-premium differentials. Some combination will probably score more than salah+6.5m in that time, it's just picking the right one, and having to take the consequences if Salah hauls

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        11 months, 6 days ago

        Salah can score against anyone, so can Sterling but Salah = FPL King ever since he arrived at LFC and I expect he will be top of the pile come end season again.

        1. Marmalade Forest
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 6 days ago

          Probably. But let me set a scene:

          -He is top player come GW38
          -He does this despite a poor period in GW6-12
          -You sell him for that period and bring in the mid-upper priced players for GW6-12.

          -You bring him back for GW13

          That’s how you force yourself high up the ranks.

            There aren’t any good defences in the PL.

              • 5 Years
              11 months, 6 days ago

              Liverpool and City clearly are

    7. Twisted Saltergater
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      Salah, KdB, Aguero and Firmino for me.

    Well then stop making them you plonker

      Exactly

    3. Freddiebell

      Xhaka is a terrible player. Arsenal will nothing with they're backline.

      I’d wager if you play

      A) 0-1 points. 50% autosub.
      B) 1-7 points. 20% auto sub
      C) 0 points. 100% auto sub
      D) 1-6 points. 20% auto sub

    Not seeing Rich in any wc teams, no one considering him? Will be a big differential at this rate, he would be in my team if wcing.

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      Too expensive in an overrated team. I personally think hes the most overpriced player in the entire game.

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 6 days ago

        probably over-priced yea, but I think he will be getting goals

    2. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      Delph + Iwobi make him much more desirable henceforth.
      A much improved performance at last.

      1. Athletic Nasherbo

        This

    3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      He frustrated the life out of me at 6.5 last year

      At 8.0 it doesn't bear thinking about

      But no doubt he could do well

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 6 days ago

        Yea he is not my kind of player at all, I would always go Siggy before him normally but Rich seems more appealing this season for some reason

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • 10 Years
          11 months, 6 days ago

          I think both his fullbacks offer much better value

          1. dbeck

            Praying for a Coleman attacking return soon

        hmm that can also be an option

    2. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      I was anti Matip preseason but he's made me eat my cabbage.
      So gaining the beast Barnes while retaining the Pool defence is dandy in my eyes.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        lol no, if you go Burnley defender then it has to be Heaton in goal surely?

        1. dbeck
          • 2 Years
          11 months, 6 days ago

          He also has Mings which rules heaton out . I just love a double up, the best differentials. It could work with their fixtures

          1. Trophé Mourinho
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year

            tbh probably will work 😛

            1. De Gea is GOAT
              • 3 Years
              11 months, 6 days ago

              Definitely not a thing haha but fixtures looking great so worth a punt. Can always switch to another 4.5 if need be. Thank you all for the feedback. Im much happier with it now 🙂

    Thoughts on this team and the proposed transfer? 1.8OR so need to react.

  15. Mcgugan
    • 10 Years
    11 months, 6 days ago

    I’m considering no Salah or Manw on wildcard. Would have a midfield of Sterling-KDB-Son-Mount

    Gives so much flexibility in the team. My main thought is I’m more likely to captain Man City players so 12.5 is a lot to spend...

    1. dbeck
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      It’s viable but my issue is Son, not sure what he has done to warrant selection.

        Cheers mate. Yes debating Mount...the fact I’m benching I’m suggests I don’t want him in the team.

        1. dbeck
          • 2 Years
          11 months, 6 days ago

          Mounts a good pick at a good price.

          1. Athletic Nasherbo
            • 3 Years
            11 months, 6 days ago

            Agreed just can’t see many goals against Wolves and Liverpool but then after that looks good again.

            1. dbeck
              • 2 Years
              11 months, 6 days ago

              True, it’s why I’m holding on bringing him in, but if I had him it’s an easy keep

    Arsenal fans - any info on Cebellos?

    Do we expect him to start most weeks, now the fixtures are easier?

    1. JonBoy
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      No one can know yet.

      Integrating a record transfer (Pepe) and the best player (Ceballos- on a one year loan with no option, ensures by Ceballos himself) is a tough task.

      I'm saying this as a Ceballos owner.

    2. Klein
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      Not a fan here.
      He would if they had any other managers. Emery is evil. One bad game can land you weeks in bench. If they wanna win he must play.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 6 days ago

        Is he a big gamble at that price though ? Even if doesn't play all games playing for an attacking arsenal team with good fixtures surely he'll get some.returns ? Or is it better to go with a nailed option like mcginn ?

        1. JonBoy
          • 7 Years
          11 months, 6 days ago

          Guess it depends on whether he is a gamble or a necessity for a manager's points.

          We forget that we are all in different places.

    3. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…
      • 2 Years

      Is Ozil still a thing?

  19. Kaiser123
    11 months, 6 days ago

    Salah / James vs Mane / Haller. I’m still swayed by A because of Captain choice.

    1. mookie
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      B because Mane is just as good and cheaper. Haller should do much better than James.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 6 days ago

        Mmh agree with Haller ...not sure about the other statement 🙂

        1. mookie
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 6 days ago

          Most don't

  20. Jacky boy

    11 months, 6 days ago

    How long you think you will keep digne?
    His attacking returns are fine. But CS chances are really meh
    Wolves got 4 big chances vs them this week
    Although everton got a good run till gw 13

    1. dbeck
      • 2 Years

      Imagine owning Coleman, do I need to ditch?

      1. Jacky boy
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 6 days ago

        I would ditch for a city/pool def. No other teams

        1. dbeck
          • 2 Years
          11 months, 6 days ago

          I’m maxed out on those slots. Robbo VVD salah KDB raz Zinch. Guess I’ll hold

    2. JonBoy
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      Everton's defensive stats were excellent back end of last season, I'm led to believe.

      1. Jacky boy
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 6 days ago

        Last season!
        Gueye has gone. No zouma and gbamin is injured

      2. Klein
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 6 days ago

        Last season they had different backline too. Zouma is gone. Now there is injury.

        1. JonBoy
          • 7 Years
          11 months, 6 days ago

          Zouma- the legend he is at Chelsea?

          Defences are based upon systems and management.

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

      Until GW 13, then he becomes a Liverpool defender. At least that's the plan.

    4. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      Marco Silva is a bad defensive manager. Everton will concede tons.

      1. Jacky boy
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 6 days ago

        That's my thought

      2. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 6 days ago

        he had the best defensive home record in the whole of europes top leagues prior to joing the premier league though, so is that actually true?

        1. JonBoy
          • 7 Years
          11 months, 6 days ago

          And best defence in Europe back end of last season. 8ish cleanies in 11 or something crazy like that.

          1. Trophé Mourinho
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            11 months, 6 days ago

            i think he is naturally defensive minded but Everton want attacking football so he is caught in a transition trying to find a balance between defending and attacking.

          2. JonBoy
            • 7 Years
            11 months, 6 days ago

            8 in 11 it was.

            1. Trophé Mourinho
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year

              nice

    5. Jacky boy

      I myself am heavily considering selling after SHU and before city to ota/stones

      1. Warby84
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 6 days ago

        I’m slightly surprised by this, I remember benching away to city and he got an assist, for me he’s a season keeper..

  21. Hakim Ziyech
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 6 days ago

    If only Mane was on spot kick duties, Salah would've been a name for the past

    1. Kip
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      This

    2. Klein
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      Without spotkick salah was the top fpl point scorer in 2 years. Now he has penalties when milner is not playing (most games).

      1. Hakim Ziyech
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 6 days ago

        Mané was the only player out of the 3 highest goal scorers last season without spot kick duties. He could easily finish above salah if he was good at taking them.

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • 11 Years
          11 months, 6 days ago

          and Salah

          1. Hakim Ziyech
            • 1 Year
            11 months, 6 days ago

            Salah takes pen

            1. Twisted Saltergater
              • 11 Years
              11 months, 6 days ago

              this season

              1. COK3Y5MURF
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                11 months, 6 days ago

                Salah scored some pens last season.

                1. Twisted Saltergater
                  • 11 Years
                  11 months, 6 days ago

                  How many was it? 2?

                  1. Hakim Ziyech
                    • 1 Year
                    11 months, 6 days ago

                    between 3-5 I believe

        2. COK3Y5MURF
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 6 days ago

          Not to mention he has defensive duties in Pool's system whereas Salah is the furthest man forward. And he still managed to share the Golden Boot. Probably why Salah is so selfish and doesn't want to pass to him.

          1. Twisted Saltergater
            • 11 Years
            11 months, 6 days ago

            Salah doesn’t want to pass to anyone. It’s not just Mané. I only have noticed this as a Firmino owner this season.

            1. COK3Y5MURF
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              11 months, 6 days ago

              True. Firmino was even more open than Mane in that match. That was the moment that pissed even Klopp off. But this has been happening more frequently with Mane since last season.

              1. Twisted Saltergater
                • 11 Years
                11 months, 6 days ago

                Yeah, rivalry is good but not if it costs Liverpool some goals and points.

            2. Hakim Ziyech
              • 1 Year
              11 months, 6 days ago

              Yes & out of those 3 forward men, Salah is the least clinical imo.
              Mane>Firmino>Salah

              Salah will always have big chances to score but will waste alot of them compared to Bobby & Sadio

          2. Hakim Ziyech

            Yes but on some occasions, I see Mané as the furthest man forward from the 3. It is the fluidity in the attack.Mane is just as good as Salah to me.

        Cheers, he at any risk of going above 4.4 soon?

    Thoughts on this WC team ?

    Pope-Button
    Lundstram-Lowton-Otamendi-TAA-Digne
    Cantwell-Salah-Sterling-KDB-Dendonker
    Pukki-Haller-Barnes

      Looks pretty template, nothing wrong with that if you dont mind the Norwich attack double up

    Callum Wilson: 7.8mil and has (EVE, sou, WHU, ars, NOR) up next.

    Why on earth is his price still dropping?I’m seriously considering him as my Jota replacement

    1. pingissimus

      Can’t wait to get him

      Absolutely berserk that he’s dripping with 4 from 4 and those fixtures.

      Agreed, it's strange.
      He could do well, good player.

        Suppose it’s the Pukki effect and people getting over excited by the SU Villa fixtures first up and expecting double digits. To my mind the exciting fixtures start in 6 - you missed Watford out!

        1. Kip
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 6 days ago

          True, (wat) should be added to the list as well

        2. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…
          • 2 Years
          11 months, 6 days ago

          Makes sense.

    3. Marmalade Forest

      Shouldn’t be allowed to drop. Price drops shouldn’t be based solely on sales.

    4. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 6 days ago

      Yes,He is a decent option tbh

    even tho 3 seems the right way, 4 at the back still appeals to me, and double pool defence also still looks appealing. TAA + VVD returns still not bad even with lack of cs

    1. Marmalade Forest
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 6 days ago

      I’m on TAA/Robbo/Coleman and Digne.

      I’m happy with the return so far.

      Played all four every week, 69 points.

      Average return of 4.3 per person per game for an average price of 6.4m.

    Heres some pretty damning statistics about corners which I thought was quite interesting:

    - Since 2000 PL corners which led to a goal (indirectly) = 3.1%
    - Since 2000 PL corners which led to a goal (directly) = 1.2%
    - Across the big leagues 40% of corners dont clear the first man
    - Across the big leagues only 16% result in an attempt on goal, with only 7% of those attempts being on target

    So does having a player who takes corners really add to their appeal? I doubt it, but maybe there is some exceptions to that rule. (TAA says hi)

    No need to WC this team right?
    -4 though. Moving AWB -> Walker/Otamendi after next week for free. 0.5 ITB

    Ryan
    TAA - Robertson - Digne - Lundstram
    Salah - Sterling - Dilva - Mount - James
    Wesley

    (Button, Pukki, AWB, Greenwood)
