Kane’s hat-trick the stand-out story from Saturday’s internationals

Saturday’s Euro 2020 qualifiers and friendlies get the once-over as we continue to keep an eye on Fantasy assets over the international break.

Subscribers can view data on some of the matches listed below in our Members’ Area, with details available here.

England 4-0 Bulgaria

  • Jordan Pickford (£5.6m) – 90 minutes
  • Michael Keane (£5.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Harry Maguire (£5.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Danny Rose (£5.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Declan Rice (£4.9m) – 90 minutes
  • Ross Barkley (£5.8m) – 90 minutes
  • Marcus Rashford (£8.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Harry Kane (£11.0m) – 77 minutes
  • Raheem Sterling (£12.3m) – 71 minutes
  • Jordan Henderson (£5.5m) – 67 minutes
  • Mason Mount (£6.4m) – 23 minutes
  • Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£6.4m) – 13 minutes
  • Tom Heaton (£4.5m) – 0 minutes
  • Nick Pope (£4.6m) – 0 minutes
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.1m) – 0 minutes
  • Ben Chilwell (£5.4m) – 0 minutes
  • Joe Gomez (£5.4m) – 0 minutes
  • Tyrone Mings (£4.5m) – 0 minutes
  • Harry Winks (£5.5m) – 0 minutes
  • James Maddison (£7.1m) – 0 minutes
  • Callum Wilson (£7.8m) – 0 minutes

Harry Kane (£11.0m) and Raheem Sterling (£12.3m) were England’s goalscorers as Gareth Southgate’s side kept up their 100% record in European Championship qualification Group A.

Kane finished from close range on 24 minutes and later scored twice from the spot to complete his hat-trick, also setting up Sterling for the City winger’s goal.

Sterling, playing on the right flank of England’s 4-3-3, had been the creator of Kane’s first strike and would have had an assist earlier in the game had the Spurs forward not drifted offside when finishing the premium FPL midfielder’s cross.

One shot and one key pass was perhaps not a fair reflection of Sterling’s influence on the game but Kane was more eye-catching on the underlying stats front, registering nine penalty box touches and five shots in the box – the limited ability of England’s opponents meaning that there was not as much ‘dropping deep’ from the Spurs man.

Fantasy managers care little for international performances, of course, and are primarily concerned with their assets getting back to their clubs in one piece and not fatigued.

Happily for their owners, Sterling and Kane came through the match unscathed and were even handed a breather in the final 20 minutes, being replaced by Jadon Sancho and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£6.4m).

There was even better news for owners of Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.1m), Callum Wilson (£7.8m) and James Maddison (£7.1m), who were among nine players who remained unused substitutes at Wembley.

In-demand mid-price FPL midfielder Mason Mount (£6.4m), meanwhile, had less than 25 minutes of action as a second-half replacement for Jordan Henderson (£5.5m).

Having started Gameweek 4 as Manchester United’s central striker, Marcus Rashford (£8.5m) was back on the left flank for this match.

Rashford won Kane’s first penalty after being fouled following his driving run into the Bulgaria box and actually matched the Spurs striker for efforts on goal, although three of his five attempts were from outside the box.

Jordan Pickford (£5.6m), Michael Keane (£5.5m), Harry Maguire (£5.5m), Danny Rose (£5.5m), Declan Rice (£4.9m) and Ross Barkley (£5.8m) all lasted 90 minutes, meanwhile, although it was a relatively quiet afternoon for England’s more defensive-minded players as Bulgaria’s bright-ish early start amounted to little.

Jesse Lingard (£6.4m) missed this win and won’t be involved in Tuesday’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Kosovo having withdrawn from the squad due to illness.

Southgate said of the Manchester United midfielder:

We decided to send [Jesse] home. He hasn’t been able to train the last couple of days. We don’t think he’ll be ready for Tuesday. We’ve still got 23 players [so won’t call up a replacement for Lingard].

Brazil 2-2 Colombia

  • Ederson (£6.1m) – 90 minutes
  • Richarlison (£7.9m) – 84 minutes
  • Roberto Firmino (£9.5m) – 83 minutes
  • Fabinho (£5.5m) – 0 minutes
  • Yerry Mina (£5.6m) – 90 minutes
  • Davinson Sanchez (£5.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Jefferson Lerma (£4.9m) – 29 minutes

Five Premier League-based players started and lasted at least 80 minutes as Brazil and Colombia shared four goals in Saturday’s friendly in Miami.

Everton pair Richarlison (£7.9m) and Yerry Mina (£5.6m) were perhaps the pick of the FPL assets in this match, with Mina looking more assured than Davinson Sanchez (£5.5m) at the heart of the Colombian defence.

The Toffees’ centre-back also underlined his aerial threat when nodding over early in the game.

Having scored in back-to-back games in league and cup for Everton, Richarlison looked like a player brimming with confidence.

Reprising the role he has played for Everton over the last six months, Richarlison was a menace down the Brazil right and went close to scoring when curling an effort narrowly wide of David Ospina’s post.

The former Watford winger registered four shots on goal, three key passes and six penalty touches – tallies that all trumped Roberto Firmino (£9.5m).

The Liverpool striker was leading the line for Brazil on Saturday but an early headed half-chance was his only real sighter of goal and his evening was summed up when he inadvertently blocked Neymar’s goalbound shot.

Ederson (£6.1m) played the whole 90 minutes, while Bournemouth’s Jefferson Lerma (£4.9m) made it off the bench for Colombia just after the hour mark.

Fabinho (£5.5m) was an unused substitute.

The concern for owners of Firmino and co. is that Brazil and Colombia are both in action in America in the early hours of Wednesday morning, with the Selecao facing Peru and Colombia taking on Venezuela.

While Richarlison and Mina have an extra day to recover ahead of Everton’s trip to Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon, Firmino, Fabinho and Liverpool are in action on Saturday lunchtime against Norwich.

A long-haul flight back from North America is not ideal preparation for Gameweek 5, then.

Firmino was indeed benched after returning late from international duty in Gameweek 9 of last season.

France 4-1 Albania

  • Hugo Lloris (£5.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Olivier Giroud (£6.8m) – 90 minutes
  • Lucas Digne (£6.1m)- 10 minutes
  • Kurt Zouma (£4.9m) – 0 minutes
  • Matteo Guendouzi (£4.5m) – 0 minutes
  • Moussa Sissoko (£5.0m) – 0 minutes

There are usually several Premier League-based players on show when France are in action but only two started at the Stade de France on Saturday.

Didier Deschamps was deprived of the services of N’Golo Kante (£5.0m), Anthony Martial (£7.7m), Aymeric Laporte (£6.5m) and Paul Pogba (£8.5m) thanks to injury, while Alexandre Lacazette (£9.4m) was again overlooked.

Hugo Lloris (£5.5m) and Olivier Giroud (£6.8m) started and finished Saturday’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Albania, while Lucas Digne (£6.1m) emerged as an 80th-minute substitute at left-back.

Kurt Zouma (£4.9m), Matteo Guendouzi (£4.5m) and Moussa Sissoko (£5.0m) failed to make it off the bench, meanwhile.

Giroud wasted an excellent opportunity after 12 minutes when electing to nod back across the six-yard box rather than at goal but got on the scoresheet quarter of an hour later when finishing Lucas Hernandez’s low cross.

Lloris conceded from Albania’s only shot on target: substitute Sokol Cikalleshi making no mistake from the spot after the Spurs goalkeeper had brought down Taulant Xhaka in the box late on.

Digne et al may get more of a look-in on Tuesday night should Deschamps decide to rotate his squad with minnows Andorra in town for another Euro 2020 qualifier.

Serbia 2-4 Portugal

  • Nemanja Matic (£4.8m) – 90 minutes
  • Luka Milivojevic (£6.8m) – 87 minutes
  • Rui Patricio (£5.1m) – 90 minutes
  • Bernardo Silva (£7.8m) – 90 minutes
  • Joao Cancelo (£5.4m) – 25 minutes
  • Joao Moutinho (£5.5m) – 5 minutes
  • Ruben Neves (£5.5m) – 0 minutes
  • Diogo Jota (£6.3m) – 0 minutes

While Europa League participation threatens to make Wolves players rotation risks over the coming months, three of their Fantasy assets were at least handed breathers of sorts in Saturday’s Euro 2020 qualification win over Serbia.

Ruben Neves (£5.5m) and Diogo Jota (£6.3m) remained unused substitutes in this six-goal thriller, with Joao Moutinho (£5.5m) only getting off the bench for the final five minutes.

Teammate Rui Patricio (£5.1m) played the full 90 minutes in goal and didn’t really have much chance for either of Serbia’s goals, with the Wolves shot-stopper doing well to tip over a rising Adem Ljajic effort.

Bernardo Silva (£7.8m) played the whole 90 minutes for the visitors, reprising his role at Manchester City on the right flank.

Bernardo has already been benched twice in the league this season in favour of Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) and there may be concerns about the Portuguese midfielder’s involvement over the international break, although Mahrez does face a friendly against Benin on Monday with Algeria.

The City winger curled in the final goal of the match with his only shot of the game, having earlier provided the assist for Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal with a fine defence-splitting through-ball.

Teammate Joao Cancelo (£5.4m), who seems set to threaten Kyle Walker‘s (£6.0m) security of starts in the coming weeks, was handed a 25-minute run-out at right-back.

Nemanja Matic (£4.8m) and Luka Milivojevic (£6.8m) were paired together in central midfield, with the Palace midfielder not on set-piece duties for his country and subsequently not creating a single chance.

USA 0-3 Mexico

  • Christian Pulisic (£7.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Raul Jimenez (£7.4m) – 0 minutes

Raul Jimenez (£7.4m) wasn’t involved as Mexico beat their old rivals 3-0 in an international friendly on Saturday but Christian Pulisic (£7.5m) lasted the full 90 minutes for the hosts.

Mexico dominated from an early stage and Pulisic had little chance to impress, failing to register a single shot and recording only one key pass.

The concern for Jimenez and Pulisic’s FPL owners is that both players are anticipated to be involved in their countries’ respective friendlies in the early hours of Wednesday morning, with the USA hosting Uruguay and Mexico meeting Argentina – both matches taking place in the States.

A long-haul flight back from America then follows, leaving perhaps only two days of training at best for both players ahead of Wolves’ clash with Chelsea on Saturday.

Jimenez started in three of the four Premier League matches immediately after the international breaks last season but was benched after his most-recent mid-season appearance for Mexico in March.

In Patrick Cutrone (£5.8m), Wolves also have a rested alternative up front – something they didn’t have in 2018/19.

Iceland 3-0 Moldova

  • Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.8m) – 90 minutes

Everton’s Icelandic midfielder was the only representative in this Euro 2020 qualification Group H encounter.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.8m) played the full 90 minutes as his country breezed to a 3-0 win over limited opposition, although the Toffees’ playmaker didn’t bank an attacking return.

The underlying stats were familiar: Sigurdsson had four shots on goal but only one was from inside the opposition box.

The former Spurs and Swansea man is next in action against Albania on Tuesday night in another Euro 2020 qualifier.

Lithuania 0-3 Ukraine

  • Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.6m) – 90 minutes
  • Andriy Yarmolenko (£5.9m) – 60 minutes

FPL defender Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.6m) was in his usual central midfield position for his country as Ukraine comfortably saw off Lithuania.

The Manchester City left-back indeed popped up in the middle of the box to fire the visitors in front on seven minutes and perhaps should have done better with another shot from inside the Lithuania area just before half-time.

Zinchenko also created three chances for his teammates in his more advanced role.

West Ham winger Andriy Yarmolenko (£5.9m), playing as part of a front three, was withdrawn on the hour-mark having not registered a single shot or key pass.

Ukraine next take on Nigeria in a friendly on Tuesday, so owners of these two FPL assets will be hoping for managed minutes as we approach Gameweek 5.

Turkey 1-0 Andorra

  • Çaglar Söyüncü (£4.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Cenk Tosun (£5.8m) – 90 minutes

Budget Leicester defender Çaglar Söyüncü (£4.5m) played the full game as Turkey narrowly avoided an embarrassing goalless draw with Andorra.

The Foxes’ centre-half, who has started all four league games so far this season, was booked in the second half but had little defending to do as the Group H minnows produced a brave rearguard effort.

The hosts had to wait until the 89th minute to break the deadlock and profligate Everton striker Cenk Tosun (£5.8m) was one of the main offenders in front of goal, hitting the post with one of his efforts from inside the six-yard box.

Turkey are in action again on Tuesday against Moldova.

Costa Rica 1-2 Uruguay

  • Lucas Torreira (£4.9m) – 45 minutes

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira (£4.9m) will be assessed after requesting to be substituted just before half-time of Uruguay’s friendly win over Costa Rica on Saturday.

Torreira has since been pictured in training with his international teammates, however, so may still be involved in the friendly against USA in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

A late arrival back at Arsenal ahead of Gameweek 5 appears possible, then, although the Gunners at least have an extra day of preparation as they head to Vicarage Road on Sunday.

The situation, along with Granit Xhaka‘s (£5.4m) injury, will be keenly monitored by owners of Dani Ceballos (£5.7m) given that those two players started ahead of the on-loan Spaniard in the north London derby last Sunday.

    Hi, draft question:
    I've Lucas Moura and Lamela on my team at the moment and I'm thinking both can start missing games now that Son and Alli are back.
    I think here are only this 4 mids available:
    A) Iwobi
    B) Lanzini
    C) Pedro
    D) Ozil

    Should i make any sub?

    1. Recoba
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 days, 1 hour ago

      Lanzini worth dropping one. I think Iwobi will be good but it’s a gamble with competition for starting xi

    2. Crazygopher
        10 days, 54 mins ago

        B good fixtures and nailed

    3. kyrgios
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Do we have to guess or something?
          Thought the question was quite straightforward.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            10 days, 49 mins ago

            If Norwich bunkers, KDB might be the best option.

        • F4L
          • 4 Years
          10 days, 58 mins ago

          has to be Raz if Aarons is out alongside Norwich's best 2 CBs.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          10 days, 40 mins ago

          a not remotely close

      6. HellasLEAF
        • 10 Years
        10 days, 35 mins ago

        Have Kun, and keeping until he eventually injures himself while in form.

        But having the toughest time with Sterling and sacrificing elsewhere or KDB and that really nice price. KDB may score under Sterling in the end, but will make a mockery of his price..

        1. Skull And Gnomes 9
          • 2 Years
          10 days, 29 mins ago

          Yep, something about owning Citeh's pure out and out striker feels warm inside.
          Kev's price is nice, hate not owning but the Arse and Spurs need covering in my world.

          Things are about to get very tricky indeed I feel.

      7. yakirh
        • 3 Years
        10 days, 34 mins ago

        Is Martial fit?

      8. secret_account
        • 3 Years
        10 days, 33 mins ago

        Does the members area contain the position of which goals were scored from? So I could look at each individual team and see where if there are any weak spots that they tend to concede from?

        1. BC1
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          10 days, 23 mins ago

          Yes, it has team stats, with amount of chances conceded down either left or right flank.

          1. secret_account
            • 3 Years
            10 days, 17 mins ago

            Thanks, any detail into the quality of the chances or if they were converted?

              Yes, it goes into big chances conceded too.

            Or conceded in the box, outside the box, minutes per chance conceded. It's very detailed.

        My current team:

        Adrian (McGovern)
        Digne Matip Lundstram (Dunk, Rico)
        Sterling Mane De Bruyne Pepe (Cantwell)
        Haller Pukki Barnes

        How does it look? And which two should I start this week between Lundstram-Dunk-Pukki?

          Looking good. Not in love with your defence but the points have been further up the pitch so I get it. Lund and Pukki for me

          I really like this team, Jubbly!
          To answer you and Duffy below I would play Lund.

          The Hammers really did expose the Canary Honeymoon imb.
          And now they have to swim with bigger fish. 🙂

            In your case though, I would play Dunk.
            Which is quite a coincidence really seeing as Duffy below shares his surname. 😆

        3. RIDZ
          • 2 Years

          Lund & Pukki

        4. Differential (c)

          Pukki+Dunk.

        Rico to Lund to improve the bench?

          10 days, 12 mins ago

          If he's going to be on the bench anyway, wouldn't it just be better to roll the transfer? Can always do it next week if needed.

          Unless you're concerned about value.

          1. IWR

            I'd probably play over Pukki if I owned. Seems a great fixture for him.

          I was waiting till after tonight's match before doing Laporte to Alexander-Arnold, but now I've lost 0.2m by waiting.
          Very annoying, especially if TAA comes through tonight's match unscathed. Makes me wish I'd taken the risk of making the transfer earlier now.
          I just hope that 0.2m doesn't prevent me being able to afford my next two planned transfers.

          Lowton over Pieters for me.
          Eriksen probably a decent shout, but wondering how much he plays, considering he is likely to leave in January? Played in NLD cuz the masses would riot if he was left out, but other than that . . . Dunno, but if he was nailed, a bargain at his price.

          Bench is fine/bearable.

          1. RIDZ
            • 2 Years
            9 days, 23 hours ago

            that's it, I'm a bit afraid with his price, but Spurs in a strong fixtures now.
            What about triple up on City mid with DSilva?

            1. Differential (c)
              • 3 Years
              9 days, 23 hours ago

              Think that if you are willing to risk rotation with eriksen than might as well go for Dilva who invariably scores when he starts.

          Downgrade Erilsen to likes of Cantwell and upgrade up front. 3 strikers unproven consistency-wise in PL.

          1. RIDZ
            • 2 Years
            9 days, 23 hours ago

            Last season wasn't good for 3 strikers, but it swings now. No one premium defender explode, TAA made 3 assists but Liverpool only made 1 cs.
            Only 1 premium striker in top 5 highest points, that's why I'm considering 3 budget strikers.

            If I downgrade Eriksen, who will be upgraded?

            1. GreennRed
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              9 days, 23 hours ago

              Abraham to Vardy, Jimenez, Wilson

          2. AndyCook
            • 2 Years
            9 days, 17 hours ago

            And play Cantwell all the time? Urgh

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          9 days, 23 hours ago

          Looks good.
          What about Ayew. I have not looked at his stats but previous season would not make me think current form would continue.
          442 with him to Greenwood and upgrade Kelly.
          Kelly may not see minutes again at least Greenwood gets a point if needed. Plus don't like short to medium term CP fixtures.
          Was going to say a Bur defender but you got that covered.

          1. Albrightondknight
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            Would not continue 🙂

          2. RIDZ
            • 2 Years
            9 days, 23 hours ago

            Ayew got 2 goals in 2 games with 3 baps each, I think it's hard for me to ditch him as I bought him last gameweek.
            What about Eriksen?

            1. Albrightondknight
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              9 days, 23 hours ago

              Probably worth the risk. Great fixtures. If he is not getting minutes easy to swap out.
              Probably asking a bit much to leave enough cash aside for Pepe or Son as a replacement down the line?

              1. RIDZ
                • 2 Years
                9 days, 23 hours ago

                good shout mate. I'll take the risk with him.

        1. Differential (c)
          • 3 Years
          9 days, 23 hours ago

          If I had him, I'd take him off. When players like Mount/McNeil are available at a nearer price, think he's got to go. United look awful attacking-wise.
          Defensively not the worst imo.

          1. EMBOLOFAN
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year

            3rd for goals
            3rd for xg
            3rd attempts inside box
            5th total attempts
            5th big chances

              Agree with everything except the last point. As a fantasy asset, I want to him to play everyweek. If he is going to miss often then that will put me off him.

              1. EMBOLOFAN

              I traded him out today, but I admit it hurt... I did a double trade and downed him to James but switched AWB to TAA ... Time will tell if I messed up... Heh

          • 1 Year
          9 days, 23 hours ago

          Nketiah(4.4) or Greenwood(4.5) for bench?

          1. Differential (c)
            • 3 Years
            9 days, 23 hours ago

            Depends on what that 0.1 is used for. I'd get Greenwood if I had the money, prefer playing bench. Wondering if Greenwood will get starts, looked impressive in his cameos.

            1. Robin Van Persie (C)
              • 1 Year
              9 days, 23 hours ago

              Yes totally agree! Even if benched, Greenwood comes in almost every match, giving 1 point at least!

          2. Albrightondknight
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            9 days, 23 hours ago

            Not worth saving the .1 on a total fodder player who is out on loan.

            I am gambling Son over Pepe in a similar setup
            Could you save a bit on Adrian on a 4.5 / 4.6 keeper and Rico upgrade.
            But Adrian is always a great pick and overall I think it looks great. GL

            Save FT imo. I mean if i really had to change something it would be Dunk to someone like Maitland Niles or Lowton but that would mean double BUR defence.

                  Cheers man. Might have to pull out the wc soon though to get in the likes of son, pepe, haller, barnes etc etc.

                    Can always downgrade Kun and VVD to fund those moves man. I actually like that you have a heavy hitter in each position. So much easier to downgrade. Mind commenting on my team? on WC

                      Solid. Personally prefer Kun over sterling inspite of the Jesus threat.

                        Thanks mate. Who would you downgrade Raz to?

                          How much money would you have? Ceballos maybe?

                            11.3 left after doing Auba - Aguero. No way im downgrading to Son or Pepe yet. So yeah kinda stuck unfortunately. Can always downgrade to someone like Mount or Lanzini and upgrade Mings to Zinch but yeah not sure.

                              Like this plan actually. But go with your gut.

          Henderson
          Digne AWB KWP
          Sterling De Bruyne Martial Mount
          Aguero Haller Pukki

          Pope Lundstram Cantwell Kelly

          1FT, 0.9m

          Thoughts on Martial, AWB -> James, TAA (-4). The thinking is that TAA is a long term season keeper and I would rather get him in now while he's still 7.1m than some time down the line.

              I made that exact trade today... Not impressed with United's overall game right now, but I do like Martial. Hoping James can buy me a little... Not counting on him scoring a goal every game like he has been... But I wanted Trent before I was priced out...

              I am on Digne for season keeper and wouldn't take a hit for defender. Maybe save and play Lund+Cantwell if AWB out

              I like those moves, James looking value and in form and TAA is going to explode v NEW...I feel it in my waters!

              On something very similar (Robbo McGinn for KWP Mount) and holding and waiting a couple of weeks for TAA

              Martial is a hold for me anyway. And I wouldn’t be keen on your proposed combo of James Mount - that feels like an either or to me. And with CL around the corner I’m not that keen on either.

            With money itb to do Pukki to Wilson it has been tempting me. But with Pukki adding pens to his lockers (most likely), he looks a season keeper for me now barring injury or a dramatic loss of form!
            Lots of Pukki sales happening though, anybody on here selling the Fin?

              I sold him on wc only to bring him back on a higher price. Still tinkering. I am expecting pukki to blank in next 2. But bourne are so unpredictable.

                I bought him at 6.5 so he's hard to sell even though I feel Wilson could do well in the medium term if I make the trade!

              Contemplating losing him for Vardy in 7

              He’ll continue to return I’m sure but I’m dubious he’ll be best value. Vardy at 8.9/9.0 trumps him imo.

              I’m also holding Haller who could be swapped back into him if it proves a horrible misjudgment. But right now I see Haller Vardy as the likely value midterm holds.

                I'd love to own Vardy and almost went with him on WC in GW4, cant have them all eh!

              If you boughts Pukki at 6.5m or 6.6m I honestly think he is untouchable.

                tend to agree, feel it would be a mistake to sell him for a few more GWs at least!

            Currently on wildcard -

            Kun and KDB or
            Sterling & KDB or
            Kun & Sterling?

            I wish I could afford them all but I would have to drop Salah and I know it would burn me in the end.

              I'm on the last one but all good combos for GW5 and beyond! KDB with 3 assists and a goal v Scotland has me slightly concerned as a non-owner!

              Kun KdB if I had only two (if 🙂 )

              KdB is unbeatable value imo and I suspect will closely track Sterling returns through the season. Kun is on fire right now and enables easy moves to Auba Kane for different captain options. Big deal in my book. But that presupposes you’re happy captaining KdB - I am

              Not if Mane can keep up with Salah. You can probably squeeze all 3 city players in if you go Mane > Salah. I currently have Mane, KDB, Raz and Auba.
