De Bruyne in top form as Norwich suffer another injury blow

Our international round-ups continue with a recap of Monday’s matches.

We will again be focusing on only Premier League players as we keep an eye on minutes played, form and injuries.

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

Scotland 0-4 Belgium

  • Andrew Robertson (£6.9m) – 90 minutes
  • Robert Snodgrass (£5.4m) – 90 minutes
  • Kenny McLean (£4.9m) – 90 minutes
  • Scott McTominay (£5.0m) – 90 minutes
  • Stuart Armstrong (£5.4m) – 22 minutes
  • John McGinn (£5.6m) – 4 minutes
  • Ryan Fraser (£7.3m) – 0 minutes
  • Oli McBurnie (£5.9m) – 0 minutes
  • Toby Alderweireld (£5.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Jan Vertonghen (£5.3m) – 90 minutes
  • Leander Dendoncker (£4.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Kevin De Bruyne (£9.8m) – 90 minutes
  • Youri Tielemans (£6.4m) – 86 minutes
  • Divock Origi (£5.5m) – 0 minutes
  • Dennis Praet (£5.4m) – 0 minutes
  • Christian Benteke (£5.9m) – 0 minutes
  • Michy Batshuayi (£6.7m) – 0 minutes

Kevin De Bruyne (£9.8m) produced a midfield masterclass as Belgium effectively ended Scotland’s slim automatic Euro 2020 qualification hopes.

De Bruyne has delivered six attacking returns in four Gameweeks so far this season and he followed his excellent Premier League form up with another scintillating display at Hampden Park, bagging a goal and three assists.

His ‘hat-trick’ was sealed well before half-time, with a perfectly weighted pass for Romelu Lukaku, a pinpoint cross for Thomas Vermaelen and an inswinging corner for Toby Alderweireld (£5.5m) helping his country to a 3-0 lead.

De Bruyne curled in an excellent goal of his own in the final ten minutes.

There could have been other attacking returns, too: Lukaku and Thomas Meunier both failed to convert excellent passes from the City playmaker, while De Bruyne himself fired wide when well positioned in the 71st minute.

A slight concern for his owners might be that he has played 166 minutes over the international break, although successive 4-0 wins over San Marino and Scotland haven’t required him to get out of second gear.

Ilkay Gundogan (£5.3m) – thanks to an illness picked up on international duty – and David Silva (£8.5m) have had more of a breather over the last week or so, so Pep Guardiola does, in theory, have the option of handing De Bruyne a rest – either in the form of an early substitution or a benching – at Carrow Road on Saturday ahead of the trip to Shakhtar Donetsk a few days later.

There was good news for owners of Leander Dendoncker (£4.5m), meanwhile, with the budget FPL midfielder recovering from the knock that forced him to miss the 4-0 win over San Marino.

The Wolves man played the whole match in central midfield alongside Youri Tielemans (£6.4m), who was substituted in the dying stages.

Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen (£5.3m) completed the game and have both racked up 180 minutes over the international break.

Divock Origi (£5.5m), Dennis Praet (£5.4m) and Michy Batshuayi (£6.7m) were all unused substitutes following their run-outs against San Marino on Friday, while Christian Benteke (£5.9m) hasn’t played a single minute over the international break.

A welcome breather was also given to Ryan Fraser (£7.3m), meanwhile, who didn’t make it off the home bench.

Oli McBurnie (£5.9m) was also not called on, while John McGinn (£5.6m) only saw four minutes of action in the dying stages.

Extended pitch-time for Robert Snodgrass (£5.4m), Kenny McLean (£4.9m) and Scott McTominay (£5.0m) will likely have little impact on the Fantasy community but there was a second successive 90-minute run-out for Andrew Robertson (£6.9m), who still sits in more than one in five FPL squads.

Robertson’s indifferent form for his country continued on Monday evening but the calibre of player around him was a stark contrast to the quality he can lean on at club level.

The Liverpool left-back, who played a full 90 minutes for his club in all four of the league matches that immediately followed the international breaks last season, now has five days to recover before the Gameweek 5 visit of Newcastle.

Estonia 0-4 The Netherlands

  • Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Georginio Wijnaldum (£5.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Davy Propper (£5.0m) – 90 minutes
  • Patrick van Aanholt (£5.6m) – 0 minutes
  • Nathan Ake (£4.9m) – 0 minutes

Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) was handed his second 90-minute run-out in the space of four days as the Netherlands put four goals past Estonia in Euro 2020 qualifying Group C.

While van Dijk had his hands full in Friday’s 4-2 win over Germany, this was an altogether more comfortable night for the Liverpool stopper, with the hosts registering just one shot on goal and 28% of possession.

Not that a ‘rest’ in Gameweek 5 would be on the cards, anyway: van Dijk was an ever-present starter in the league last season.

The Dutch centre-back had a couple of efforts on goal himself in Monday’s win, including another headed attempt from a dead-ball situation.

Club colleague Georginio Wijnaldum (£5.5m) also lasted the full game in Tallinn.

Having registered an assist in the 4-2 win over Germany, Wijnaldum scored his country’s fourth goal on Monday when nodding in Memphis Depay’s cross.

Davy Propper (£5.0m) also played the full game in central midfield but Patrick van Aanholt (£5.6m) and Nathan Ake (£4.9m) failed to make it off the bench.

The highest-scoring FPL defender of 2019/20 so far and owned by more than 11% of Fantasy managers, van Aanholt has effectively had a two-week breather as he didn’t play one minute for the Dutch national side across their two Euro 2020 qualifiers.

England under-21s 2-0 Kosovo under-21s

  • Aaron Ramsdale (£4.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Ben Godfrey (£4.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Tom Davies (£5.4m) – 90 minutes
  • Phil Foden (£5.3m) – 90 minutes
  • Max Aarons (£4.5m) – 80 minutes
  • Morgan Gibbs-White (£4.9m) – 61 minutes
  • Reiss Nelson (£5.4m) – 61 minutes
  • Mason Greenwood (£4.5m) – 29 minutes
  • Todd Cantwell (£4.8m) – 29 minutes
  • Rhian Brewster (£4.5m) – 14 minutes
  • James Justin (£4.9m) – 10 minutes
  • Oliver Skipp (£4.5m) – 0 minutes

Already without one defender for the Gameweek 5 visit of Manchester City and with injury doubts hanging over another two centre-halves, Norwich City were handed a fresh blow on Monday as right-back Max Aarons (£4.5m) limped out of England under-21s’ 2-0 win over their Kosovan counterparts.

The initial concern was that Aarons had damaged his knee but the player himself confirmed it was an ankle injury after full-time, saying:

It is just precautionary. I have the crutches out as well but let’s see in the morning. Hopefully nothing too serious.

I thought initially when I made the tackle it was my left knee and there was a lot of pain but by the time I got back to the changing room and then had a shower, it felt a lot better.

The physios have had a look and it is the left ankle area so that is why I have got the boot on.

All bar Oliver Skipp (£4.5m) of the 12 FPL assets in Aidy Boothroyd’s matchday squad were handed minutes on Monday.

Ben Godfrey (£4.5m) at least made it through this game unscathed given Norwich’s issues at centre-back, while Todd Cantwell (£4.8m) made his international debut at this level as a second-half substitute.

Phil Foden (£5.3m) scored both of his country’s goals in his second successive 90-minute run-out, as he awaits his first Premier League start of the campaign with Manchester City.

Bournemouth number one Aaron Ramsdale (£4.5m) kept a clean sheet in the home goal while there were also minutes for Tom Davies (£5.4m), Morgan Gibbs-White (£4.9m), Reiss Nelson (£5.4m), Mason Greenwood (£4.5m), Rhian Brewster (£4.5m) and James Justin (£4.9m) – all very much fringe players at their respective clubs – at the KCOM Stadium.

Greenwood, the most popular FPL budget forward in the game, looked fairly lively on his second-half introduction in attack.

Wales 1-0 Belarus

  • Danny Ward (£4.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Ben Davies (£5.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Harry Wilson (£6.0m) – 89 minutes
  • Chris Mepham (£4.5m) – 77 minutes
  • Daniel James (£6.1m) – 50 minutes
  • Wayne Hennessey (£4.4m) – 0 minutes
  • Neil Taylor (£4.5m) – 0 minutes

Daniel James (£6.1m) was on the scoresheet yet again as Wales beat Belarus 1-0 in an international friendly.

James curled home what is fast becoming a trademark right-footed strike after cutting in off the left flank, evoking memories of his excellent goals against Crystal Palace and Southampton.

Further positive news for James’ ever-growing band of FPL owners was that he was withdrawn just after half-time in a planned substitution, giving him a welcome breather ahead of Manchester United’s Gameweek 5 clash with Leicester City on Saturday.

Wales head coach Ryan Giggs said after full-time:

It was a difficult one with Dan whether to rest him, but he wanted to play. When you are in form like his, players just want to play and keep scoring. He gets fans off their feet.

To do what he’s done at the start of the season is amazing. The next step obviously is that consistency, which he’s shown so far and he needs to carry on. But I’ve got no doubts that will happen because he wants to be the best, he’s a great character and a great trainer.

He’s one of those players where you know what he’s going to do but you can’t stop it. There are so many goals like that, but it’s very difficult to stop because he can go either way.

The Bournemouth Echo are reporting that Chris Mepham (£4.5m) may be a fitness worry for Gameweek 5, suggesting that the centre-back’s 77th-minute withdrawal was because of an “injury concern“.

Back-up Leicester goalkeeper Danny Ward (£4.5m) was handed a start in goal, while Ben Davies (£5.5m), yet to start a game for Spurs this season after recovering from injury, was withdrawn in stoppage time.

Mepham’s teammate Harry Wilson (£6.0m) also started his second game in four days.

Wayne Hennessey (£4.4m) was an unused substitute while Neil Taylor (£4.5m) wasn’t involved in the matchday squad, although there has been no word yet on whether the Aston Villa full-back’s omission was tactical or because of injury.

Northern Ireland 0-2 Germany

  • Bailey Peacock-Farrell (£4.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Jonny Evans (£5.0m) – 90 minutes
  • Craig Cathcart (£4.4m) – 90 minutes
  • Jamal Lewis (£4.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Michael McGovern (£4.0m) – 0 minutes
  • Bernd Leno (£5.0m) – 0 minutes

A Northern Irish backline featuring four Premier League-based players put up a good fight against Germany on Monday but were ultimately defeated by the new Euro 2020 qualification Group C leaders.

With Norwich City’s defenders dropping like flies, the Canaries at least could breathe a sigh of relief that Jamal Lewis (£4.5m) made it through this test unscathed.

The left-back deputised at centre-half in pre-season as Daniel Farke’s side struggled for numbers at the back and is one option alongside Godfrey when Manchester City visit Carrow Road on Saturday, should Grant Hanley (£4.0m) and Christoph Zimmermann (£4.5m) fail to recover.

Jonny Evans (£5.0m) and Craig Cathcart (£4.4m), first-choice centre-halves at their respective clubs in 2019/20 so far, also came through Monday’s match without any reported injuries.

Burnley’s third-choice goalkeeper, Bailey Peacock-Farrell (£4.5m), was kept busy in the home goal and made some excellent saves as Germany turned the screw in the second half.

With Ilkay Gundogan (£5.3m) having pulled out of Die Mannschaft’s squad ahead of this game because of illness, there was no Premier League representation on the field for Germany – although Bernd Leno (£5.0m) was an unused substitute.

Algeria 1-0 Benin

  • Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) – 77 minutes

Despite earlier reports having suggested otherwise, Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) was involved for his country over the international break.

The Manchester City winger’s one run-out for Algeria over this current fortnight came on Monday in a 1-0 win over Benin.

Mahrez captained his nation and played 77 minutes, going close with an early volley that was palmed out.

Poland 0-0 Austria

  • Lukasz Fabianski (£5.0m) – 90 minutes
  • Jan Bednarek (£4.5m) – 90 minutes

Lukasz Fabianski (£5.0m) was kept busy as Poland clung on for a point in their 0-0 draw with Austria on Monday.

The West Ham United goalkeeper made six saves – including two important ones from Marko Arnautovic – en route to a well-earned clean sheet as the visitors dominated this Euro 2020 qualification Group G match.

Jan Bednarek (£4.5m) also lasted the course at centre-back, meaning both he and Fabianski have played 180 minutes over this international break.

Hungary 1-2 Slovakia

  • Martin Dubrakva (£5.0m) – 90 minutes

Newcastle United’s number one goalkeeper was also in the thick of the action in a 90-minute run-out for Slovakia on Monday.

Martin Dubrakva (£5.0m) made six saves as his country bounced back from Friday’s 4-0 defeat to Croatia, although couldn’t do much about Dominik Szoboszlai’s 50th-minute free-kick that briefly restored parity.

Azerbaijan 1-1 Croatia

  • Dejan Lovren – 90 minutes

Dejan Lovren (£5.3m), yet to play for Liverpool this season, completed his second 90-minute run-out in the space of four days as Croatia were surprisingly held to a 1-1 draw in Euro 2020 qualification Group E.

Lovren was beaten far too easily as Tamkin Khalilzade danced his way through the Croatia defence to draw the hosts level.

Fitness doesn’t seem to be an issue for Lovren, then, but whether or not the Liverpool stopper features in Jurgen Klopp’s plans when the fixture congestion kicks in next week remains debatable, given his lack of involvement so far.

  2. Recklesss
    • 4 Years
    7 days, 6 hours ago

    Thoughts on:

    Greenwood, Lanzini, Emerson out
    Barnes, McGinn, 4.6 Def (will be benched) in - Can also be a 6.2 mid and Rico

    1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 2 Years
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      Option A with Ceballos instead of Lanzini .. Be ballsy! Either that or go for option B with James and Rico instead of McGinn + 4.6 def...

      But to be honest.. it depends on the rest of your team and how dependent you are on Rico

      1. Recklesss
        • 4 Years
        7 days, 6 hours ago

        My Sqaud would be:

        Adrian
        Zinc, Digne, Lowton
        Sterling, Kdb, Salah, ____
        Vardy, Pukki, Barnes

        Bench: Cantwell, Lunds, ____ (Rico)

  3. BinManJack
    • 3 Years
    7 days, 6 hours ago

    On a WC, any changes to this?

    Pope / Fodder
    TAA / Otamendi / Digne / Lundstram / (Soyuncu)
    Sterling / Salah (c) / KDB / Mount / (Dendoncker)
    King / Abraham / (Greenwood)

    1. Recklesss
      • 4 Years
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      Not sure about the Chelsea double up or King - Like it otherwise.

      1. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years
        7 days, 6 hours ago

        As long as the Chelsea double up is in attack and not defence then i'd say that's fine.

        1. Recklesss
          • 4 Years
          7 days, 6 hours ago

          Rather Pukki, Barnes, and Mount then King, Tammy, Mount

          1. ZICO SENNA
            • 8 Years
            7 days, 6 hours ago

            i suppose, but i'd rather have ammy over Barnes

    2. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 2 Years
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      King -> Barnes if possible

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 2 Years
        7 days, 6 hours ago

        If that's not possible do Tammy + King --> Pukki + Barnes

    3. Rage Against The Raheem
      • 1 Year
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      Looks good mate, but I would change Mount to James and maybe have Barnes instead of king if you can

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 2 Years
        7 days, 6 hours ago

        This is actually solid advice as well

      2. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years
        7 days, 6 hours ago

        Would prefer Mount over James, when Martial returns James won't get anywhere near as much action.

    4. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      If I was on a WC I'd try get Son or pepe in but that's me. King not ideal and don't like Chelsea double up

    5. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      Nice, maybe Dendoncker to Hayden.
      Not convinced on Abraham yet but have him in my CL team.

    6. Dthinger
      • 2 Years
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      I really hope that one day there is a real FPL player named Fodder.

      Yeah, King is an issue, but I'm guessing this is a budget thing. Nonetheless I might prefer Wesley, which might free up enough cash to also get Ayew

  4. Tsparkes10
    • 1 Year
    7 days, 6 hours ago

    Still gucci to save?

    Hendo
    VVD Digne Montoya AWB
    Martial Sterling Salah KDB
    Wesley Pukki
    (Stek, Diop, Greenwood, Dendonk)

    1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 2 Years
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      AWB -> Matip seems like a pretty good move... if its on a FT

      Do you still have your WC?

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 2 Years
        7 days, 6 hours ago

        AWB --> Otamendi even better

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      Still have WC yh and 1FT with 0.6itb.

      Thought about them moves but thinking about AWB, Martial to TAA, Mount or Ceballos next week for free.

  5. DAZZ
    • 5 Years
    7 days, 6 hours ago

    I wish Salah weren’t playing in the early kick off, he’d be a prime captaincy option otherwise

    1. Recklesss
      • 4 Years
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      Lol

    2. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      What difference does the timing make?

    3. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 2 Years
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      What does early kick off have to do with anything?

    4. DAZZ
      • 5 Years
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      Never back the early kick off, it’s just a rule of mine

      1. Recklesss
        • 4 Years
        7 days, 6 hours ago

        No salt but that is ridiculous

      2. Fugazi➰
        • 1 Year
        7 days, 6 hours ago

        Not sure I agree with that logic either bud

    5. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      Triple Captain. The early bird gets the worm.

    6. Rage Against The Raheem
      • 1 Year
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      If you think Salah is the best captain choice for this game week and you don't captain him because of the time he is playing then you would be gutted if he goes and gets a big score.

      1. Fugazi➰
        • 1 Year
        7 days, 6 hours ago

        ..but would he feel better if it were later in the game. Mmm

        1. Rage Against The Raheem
          • 1 Year
          7 days, 6 hours ago

          Possibly a little bit, but if Salah goes and gets 2 goals in the first half i would think his mood will be very bad, even worse if he gets a goal in the first 5/10 mins.

  6. The Wizard of Ozil
    • 9 Years
    7 days, 6 hours ago

    how is this looking?

    Pope
    VVD - Otamendi - Digne (Lund,Kelly)
    Mane - KDB - Sterling - Wilson (Cantwell)
    Pukki - Abraham - Barnes

    1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 2 Years
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      Super, duper template! Except you have VVD and not TAA

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 2 Years
        7 days, 6 hours ago

        and Wilson and not Mount/James/McGinn/Ceballos

  7. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
    • 2 Years
    7 days, 6 hours ago

    If Martial is fit I actually think my team is shaping up quite nice

    Pope
    TAA Dunk Lundstram
    Sterling KDB Martial Mount Ceballos
    Aguero (C) Abraham
    _______
    Button; Pukki Mina Kelly

    0.0 itb

    No Liverpool.. I know.. but looking at City's and Liverpool's fixtures over the next 6 games I can't help but feel that Aguero will outscore Salah for 0.5 less. Can always get Salah in for gw7 on 2 FT if any regrets

    1. Bad Kompany
      • 1 Year
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      Gtg. Triple premium city attack looks great for next couple

    2. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      Agree on the relative assessment. Good luck

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 2 Years
        7 days, 6 hours ago

        Thanks MTP. You have triple city as well?

        1. MTPockets
          • 10 Years
          7 days, 6 hours ago

          I will have. Was planning Firmino too, but the Brazil game tomorrow's putting me off so not sure what I'm doing now if he plays

  8. Twitter: @Ze_Austin

    With their stats and eye test performance while at the bottom of the ticker, I'm a bit fussed about being unable to fit a Burnley defensive double-up in my squad. GWs 5 to 14 can easily have 5+ clean sheets, with most other budget-friendly options in the league not having as much points potential. I don't see it as "I don't want two from X team", but rather as "I feel these two players will outscore other options I could get at that combined price over these 6 to 10 fixtures". Easy to dump one if they suddenly become bad at defending, of course

    Doubling up is the "differential" sometimes, as Joe keeps saying. Takes being able to look beyond one bad GW and focusing on the extended fixture run, I think

    1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 2 Years
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      Completely agree. Lowton / Pieters are great value at 4.5 / 4.6

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 2 Years
        7 days, 6 hours ago

        Looking to do Dunk --> Lowton for gw 6 in case I decide to go Salahless for a little while longer

            Haha thanks 😉 Yeah I'm leaning toward Lowton, which leaves me 0.1m wiggle room for price changes if I want Tammy in instead of Barnes next week.

              I would be inclined to say that might be a wise room.. Not sure there is gonna be much between Lowton / Pieters anyway, though the latter got some attacking returns

              1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…

                Honestly I don't know that much about Burnley, but looking at Pieters' stats from previous seasons, those 2 assists looks like a fluke. 6 assists in the past 4 seasons.
                Appreciate the input. Hopefully we'll luck out and get something from Lowton :9

                  If I get him it won't be for this gameweek, but next. But yeah. Don't worry to much. He is a good option, no one can deny this.

                  Depends on teams style of play. Dyche unlikely to encourage fullback to get too far forward. Brighton fullback may have more attacking scope.

        This season, any team losing a CS isn't surprising. I'm saying the stats and eye test have backed them so far in tougher games, with easier games coming up. Unlike most other teams outside the top 6, Burnley doesn't stop parking the bus even if you're 20th in the league, so their defensive approach vs Liverpool is expected to be used even against Newcastle. This sets them apart from other smaller teams as they're more defensively reliable in the easier games than most other options you'd get at that price... Making a double-up more logical than going for such options as Diop just to avoid the double-up

        1. SADIO SANÉ
          • 4 Years
          7 days, 6 hours ago

          yeah, I do get what you're saying, but those fixtures still don't really warrant it imo, they are deceptively bad imo - GWs 11-14 much better

            Not sure if you're trolling, but I'll answer seriously 🙂

            You can buy any player in the league in FPL. "I'm a bit fussed about being unable to fit a Burnley defensive double-up in my squad" because there's no point downgrading any of the price points I have to upgrade Kelly, who's just fine as my third sub. If I needed a circa-4.5 D, I'd have gotten one of 'em. An injury somewhere and it can happen though

            1. MTPockets
              • 10 Years
              7 days, 6 hours ago

              Only a little. Even if you could swap Lundstram for a Burnley def you wouldn't play them right? So it doesn't make a practical difference whether or not you can afford one, which sort of undermines your point about being fussed.

                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                7 days, 6 hours ago

                I'm A BIT fussed about being unable to fit a Burnley defender in my squad for the reasons you and I have both outlined

                Not that I'm having sleepless nights over it. Just something along the lines of "Oh, that would have been nice and brought good points with their performance and fixtures, but oh well". Can't have 'em all anyway. Can only have 15 players and I'm fine with my 15 but would recommend for those who have a 4.5 D spot

          That is the definition of a template (but very good) team

            • 10 Years

            Yep and I'm 1m+ from affording it

              7 days, 6 hours ago

              Just to be clear, it was not a dig at all. I agree on the template picking it self. I just went with Aguero over Salah because I feel like Aguero is going to outscore Salah over the next 5-6 games. Also offers a great ''diffferential'' captain choice and a great way to differentiate yourself from the template team in general. But I 100% agree with you.

                Didn't even notice any hint of a dig. Wasn't the aim of my reply... We're good 🙂

                I understand you and consider Aguero one of the options I wish I could fit in but I'm going without (S + S priorities for me). Worked well for you and could easily continue to do so

                1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
                  • 2 Years
                  7 days, 5 hours ago

                  It's a 50/50 decision really. I am indeed nervous about going without Salah especially this week. But if he hauls and Aguero doesn't, that would just make up for the points I got for Aguero last gameweek. So no harm done in that perspective. Definetely rather have Aguero over Salah in gw6.

            I absolutely would not think of dropping Otamendi until he gets injured or Laporte returns in 2020, but we're different managers and I understand that

    Unsavory options for last slot this week.

    Play one of:
    Rico (EVE), Cantwell (MCI), Soyuncu (mun)

    1. Fugazi➰
      • 1 Year
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      Soyunco

    2. Recklesss
      • 4 Years
      7 days, 6 hours ago

      Got to be Cantwell 2 points in the bank. Can see both Lei v Man and Eve vs Bou being goal fest.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 days, 6 hours ago

        Lei vs Mun will be far from a goal fest. I'm leaning Soy atm.

        1. Recklesss
          • 4 Years
          7 days, 6 hours ago

          Leaning or decided. If you don't think it's going to be a goal fest and there is a good chance of a clean sheet then Soy is the obvious choice.

    3. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Soyuncu

    4. Mee Pukki-Pukki Long Teemu:…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Cantwell out of those

    5. Bad Kompany

      7 days, 6 hours ago

      Rico isn’t going to start, is he?

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 days, 6 hours ago

        Seems harmless. He either starts or he is an unused sub. But I think Everton will score so he's last in the pecking order right now.

        1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
          • 2 Years

          Same could be said for Soy... United at home should grab at least one goal!

      It's a 33/33/33 decision for me...
      Prolly go for Rico because Everton can be a hit and a miss sometimes.. He definetely has the highest ceiling whereas Cantwell has the highest floor..

    7. TLF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Id play Cantwell I think, he is first on my bench with Soy next in line.

        1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
          • 2 Years

          Definetely go for a burnley defender if you need him to play most gameweeks

      3. PlumaPiedra
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

      Thanks all! So the consensus is Pieters. But would you rather go for Lowton if that meant having 0.1m ITB for price changes if I would want Tammy next GW. Can't really weigh the potential up- or downside myself :/

      Much appreciated!

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 2 Years

        You prolly don't want Tammy for gw6 as they are playing Liverpool.. but a little wiggle room is indeed a good thing. N,ot sure there is gonna be much between Lowton and Pieters anyway as I stated above.

        Go for Lowton

      He has been ''falling'' ever since gw4 ended. I have him in my team and have faith that the legend of the frenchman who could not fall price regardless of transfers will remain a self-evident truth come gw5, in which he willl haul and double rise within a few days.

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 2 Years
        7 days, 6 hours ago

        Joke a side, I think most people who are transfering him out are doing it on a wildcard in order to capitalize on the price difference between him and Mount/James/McGinn/Ceballos/Lanzine and use the funds elsewhere. If one has a decent bench, there is no good reason to transfer him out imo. Still a decent pick. Can easily outscore Haller when and if fit

    Hi mates?

    Would you start Lundstram or Pukki this GW?

    Cheers

    1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 2 Years

      Lundstram..

      1. EgyptianKing
        • 1 Year
        7 days, 6 hours ago

        Cheers mate. Thank you

    2. Rage Against The Raheem

      Starting Lundstram over Pukki myself, but i don't see much chance of a Norwich goal and Sheffield Utd got a good chance of a clean sheet and Lundstram could getting attacking returns.

      1. EgyptianKing
        • 1 Year
        7 days, 6 hours ago

        Cheers!

        I am leaning towards your thinking as well.

        However I can see Norwich playing a very open game, in fact conceding goals but also creating some chances.

        Difficult decision...

        1. Rage Against The Raheem
          • 1 Year
          7 days, 5 hours ago

          I just follow my gut decisions in these cases, if you think they will score then Pukki will more than likely be the scorer. Just ask yourself what you think is more likely, Norwich scoring against City with the few chances they will get or Sheffield Utd keeping a clean sheet and a possible Lundstram attacking return.

    3. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Both? Who are your other bench options? I'm starting Pukki and Lundstram and benching Cantwell.

      1. EgyptianKing
        • 1 Year
        7 days, 5 hours ago

        I am currently at:

        Ryan
        Digne, AWB, Robertson, Chenko
        Mount, Salah, Sterling, KDB
        Barnes, Pukki

        Button, Lundy, Dendoncker, Greenwood

        Who would you bench, mate?

    2. Haller + 4.0

    1. Rage Against The Raheem
      • 1 Year
      7 days, 5 hours ago

      Option 1 imo with Soyuncu

  20. Nightf0x
    • 4 Years
    7 days, 5 hours ago

    Get whom?

    A) cebalos
    B) james
    C) iwobi

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 days, 5 hours ago

      James. I have Ceballos wouldn't but him now

    2. Rage Against The Raheem
      • 1 Year
      7 days, 5 hours ago

      James imo (have him myself) but iwobi could become a good option down the line, one for the watch list for now.

    3. Robin Van Persie (C)
      • 1 Year
      7 days, 5 hours ago

      James looks good! Iwobi a good punt as well!

    How did Barkley look today?

    1. Rhinos
      • 6 Years
      7 days, 5 hours ago

      Can't wait till Pep picks Foden

  22. Rhinos
    • 6 Years
    7 days, 5 hours ago

    Coming round to Pepe+1.6 being better than Aub. Arsenal don't really have a replacement for Pepe so he should get plenty of starts and if Aub gonna play wide to accomodate Laca then Pepe could match him.
    Appreciate it's a punt though coz he'd have to convert his chances as well as Aub and that ain't easy. Thoughts?

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 days, 5 hours ago

      Ceballos only Arsenal player I have and would get James instead if was for free

      1. Rhinos
        • 6 Years

        thanks thats really helpful

    2. Robin Van Persie (C)

      Going with Pepe! He is going to be a superstar this year!

      1. Rhinos

        me too. Good luck us

    3. panda07

    Terrified not owning Salah. Do I do -4 and use 1m itb Mane>Salah or keep the faith?

    1. Nice to Finally Michu

      mane to salah for a hit? Pass

          Play this game scared and you’ll be eaten up

          Trading one premium attacker for another from the same team is sideways in my eyes. City play Norwich this weekend, would you even captain whichever mid you end up with?

          1. Klaren
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            7 days, 5 hours ago

            Salah is clearly the best captain option this GW, Norwich away isn’t a bad fixture but mot as good as Newcastle at home and Salah didn’t have any international games unlike City mids.

            1. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              7 days, 5 hours ago

              Wait. What makes Norwich not as good a fixture as Newcastle?

              A team with ZERO fit centerbacks and absolutely no concern about how many goals they concede vs a team that parks the bus in every big 6 game and recently successfully did that against Spurs (and btw, I do expect Liverpool to score and win the game; not the point)?

              Home vs Away makes one better than the other regardless of who they're facing at home or away?

    2. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 days, 5 hours ago

      Salah at home plus no international duties. I feel a brace at least Kiwi.

      1. Nice to Finally Michu
        • 6 Years
        7 days, 5 hours ago

        Mane is also at home plus no international duties...

        1. the dom 1
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          7 days, 5 hours ago

          Thats also true too lol

    3. Rhinos
      • 6 Years
      7 days, 5 hours ago

      there's no need to be scared of Salah this season. So many premiums could beat him in any given gw

    4. Rage Against The Raheem
      • 1 Year
      7 days, 5 hours ago

      Not for a hit mate, this could be one of the weeks where Mane does better. Just do it next game week if you are still unhappy with him after this game.

    5. Robin Van Persie (C)
      • 1 Year

      For a hit? Not at all!

    Which teams will score the most goals this season?

    I think it's going to be Man City, Liverpool & Arsenal!

    1. Rhinos
      • 6 Years

      really going out on a limb there

    2. F4L

    1. Aubaaaaa
      • 2 Years
      7 days, 5 hours ago

      Worried about that too. Don’t have kdb but thinking if it’ll be safer to bring in dilva now.

    2. Robin Van Persie (C)
      • 1 Year

      Downgrade Heaton to Button! Rotating keepers is the shittiest strategy! Auba> Kane imo!

      1. Wensink

        Keeping the faith with Harry for at least 3 more weeks.
