Scoutcast and Champions League combine for Tuesday night double-up

Joe is joined by David and Karam for the latest episode of the Scoutcast tonight.

You can watch it on our YouTube channel from 8pm BST to 9pm BST.

This episode overlaps with the return of European football to our screens.

Liverpool and Chelsea take on Napoli and Valencia respectively as the Champions League group stages get underway on Tuesday night.

We will have Scout Notes on those matches on Wednesday, but for now, there’s a brand new episode of the Scoutcast to occupy your attention.

On tonight’s agenda are the best cheap defenders now that the premium ones have frustrated their owners.

We’ll also discuss how best to cover Manchester City in the wake of their surprise defeat at Norwich.

Finally, we’ll debate how to recover from a poor start to the season as many managers have endured a tough few weeks.

    Who the heck else is Pep gonna play LW if not Sterling?

    Mahrez, BSilva both right wingers and to my knowledge never play left. Sane injured.

    1. tafrère

      Mendy

        That would be a mighty surprise, and I assume you’re just joking lol

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      9 months, 29 days ago

      I think Mahrez has once

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        Rare occurrence though. Sterling the only fit player that regularly plays there.

        1. Trophé Mourinho
          9 months, 29 days ago

          Jesus as well tbh if him and Kun both start

    3. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      3-5-2

      Plenty of reasons to do so

      A) Defence is shambles. Stones is out. Would allow to use Walker ad a CB alongside Fernandinho + Ota in hope to improve defence
      B) Mendy and Cancelo could.be deployed as wingbacks
      C) Jesus + Aguero could play up top

      Sterling looked fatigued vs Norwich and has played a lot of minutes recently

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Think I’ll cry if I captain sterling again and he doesn’t start

      2. @fpl_phenom
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        all excellent points and are helping my anxiety at considering selling him

      3. F4L
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        Sterling works better as a floating/support striker as well imo, so another reason why Pep could/should use this formation. He isn't being used to the best of his abilities as a touchline winger.

    4. The Big Fella
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      What makes you think he won't play Sterling?

  2. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 29 days ago

    These moves worth a -4?

    Vvd mount sterling > Rico kdb Son

    1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Wait for Chelsea presser, but yes if you have a decent defence otherwise and a good captain option this week

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        Cheers mate. Actually Rico can be Otamendi. Plan to cap Kun

        1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 29 days ago

          Monitor CL as well. If Aguero plays the full 90 minutes I would be slightly concerned about captaining him.

          Not sure about City defence tbh. Might prefer Alderweireld

        2. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 29 days ago

          Mind helping me out below mate?

  3. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 29 days ago

    If both Martial and Mount is out this week, what would you do here?

    1 ft 0 itb

    Pope
    TAA Mina Dunk
    Sterling KDB Martial* Ceballos
    Aguero Abraham Pukki
    _____
    Button; Mount* Lundstram Kelly*

    *Flagged/Injury concern

    A) Save, hope Ceballos plays and pray for Lundstram to come good
    B) One of Ceballos/Mount/Martial to McGinn/Lanzini
    C) Take a hit involving getting rid of Aguero to upgrade one of Ceballos/Mount/Martial**

    **Would most likely try to squeeze in one of Salah, Martial or Son

    Thanks in advance

    1. tafrère
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Save

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        Prolly the most logic depending on how long Mount/Martial are out for. Really hoping Martial is fit for the weekend

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      9 months, 29 days ago

      hmm depends on Martial and Mount really, maybe mount>cantwell and play him over ceballos, have martial in starting line up and hope he starts.

      Thats assuming Mount is out for a while

    3. Disturbed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Can you do martial and mount > son and cantwell? Might be worth a hit if funds permit

  4. That Fantasy Guy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    9 months, 29 days ago

    Hi all
    I've hit the WC - team was a shambles.
    Need some advice please. Which Quartet to fill in the blanks?
    A. Salah - Mount - Greenwood - Pieters
    B. Mane - Dendoncker - Abraham - Pieters
    C. Mane - Mount - Greenwood - Matip
    D. Other (Please suggest)

    Team
    Pope - Button
    Digni - Tomori - Lundstram - _____ - Rico
    ____ - Sterling - Son - Cantwell - ______
    Pukki - Aubameyang - ______

    Thanks!

    1. tafrère
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      B for me.

    2. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Mount might be injured...

    3. @fpl_phenom
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      B

  5. tafrère
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 29 days ago

    If Sterling plays 90mins tomorrow will you still captain him saturday?

    1. @fpl_phenom
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      I might not own him if that happens

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      9 months, 29 days ago

      that stelring hatti last time out in that fixture is the biggest piece of bait I ever saw :>

    3. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Nope then ill cap Aguero. If Aguero plays 90 ill cap Sterling. If both plays 90 minutes then I don't know what to do

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        9 months, 29 days ago

        haha pray

        1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 29 days ago

          Prolly that. Or get in Son or Auba

    4. F4L
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      probably feel more comfortable captaining KDB in that scenario. But Pep needs to win, can't afford anymore slip ups, so even if he plays 90 I don't think he'll rest Sterling

  6. Istanbul 05
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 29 days ago

    Anyone on here know if Yoshida is nailed?

    He has missed some game time but I'm not sure why

    1. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Been playing when the manager plays a back 5. Depends if he sticks with that formation really.

  7. Ole Trafford
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 29 days ago

    Long term ignoring Mounts injury. Which looks better?

    A) Manè and Mount
    Or
    B) Kdb and Son

    Salah, Sterling, ____, ____, Cantwell

    Cheers

    1. Cahill17
      9 months, 29 days ago

      B imo

    2. F4L
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      if Son can stay fit all season I think he could match Mane's output, so B

    3. Poseidon.
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 29 days ago

      I think Son could potentially match Mount but Mane to outscore KDB

      1. cravencottage
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        Very humorous!

    4. Istanbul 05
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      B

    5. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Interesting. I currently own Kdb and Mount. Looking to upgrade down the line either Kdb to Mane or Mount to Son.

      1. Ole Trafford
        • 7 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        I do think Mane outscores Son and Kevin but unsure if the combination would.

    6. Soto Ayam
      9 months, 29 days ago

      B ish...

  8. Cahill17
    9 months, 29 days ago

    Is Dendoncker to Cantwell a no brainer with a FT pending Mount injure news. My team is;

    1 ft 0.7 itb

    Pope
    Robb Digne Zinx (Lundstrun Soy)
    Sterling KDB Salah Mount Dendoncker
    Haller Pukki (Wickham)

    I also still have my WC

    1. F4L
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      I would definitely get that transfer done, but I don't think Cantwell I someone you would want playing on a weekly basis fwiw

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        9 months, 29 days ago

        for 3/4 weeks I reckon he is and maybe longer. His returns will come in hand with Pukkis goals imo. As long as Pukki keeps scoring and neither of them get injured, they are a pair

    2. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      I done that early this week to catch the price rise. Now o have Mount injured also but I will probably just bench and play VVD.

    3. Cahill17
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Thanks, yeah I missed the price rise and it's annoying to pay the extra 0.4. I will just wait for an update on mount injuire now and decided after that on what to do.

  9. KDB4PREZ
    9 months, 29 days ago

    Does the bench boost and free hit work for both games in DGW guys? Ino the triple captain does but not sure on the BB and FH?
    Cheers

    1. Cahill17
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Yes it does

      1. KDB4PREZ
        9 months, 29 days ago

        So in theory I could free hit bench boost and triple captain before DGW then hit my wildcard if I had them all in tact for it? Seems like a great plan to me

        1. Ole Trafford
          • 7 Years
          9 months, 29 days ago

          You can only play one chip at a time/per gw

          1. KDB4PREZ
            9 months, 29 days ago

            Ah there we go there just had to be something as was to good to be true lol cheers pal first time player here

        2. Cahill17
          9 months, 29 days ago

          You can only use one chip per GW. so you can only use the bench boost and TC on separate DGW

          1. KDB4PREZ
            9 months, 29 days ago

            Cheers man

          2. KDB4PREZ
            9 months, 29 days ago

            Feel like id rather use the BB or FH over TC in DGW but everyone seems to go for that instead

            1. Trophé Mourinho
              9 months, 29 days ago

              theres blank weeks as well ,so you could use free hit on a blank. Liverpool and someone else have one in gw18 or something.

            2. Cahill17
              9 months, 29 days ago

              There normally more than one DGW and most ppl seem to use the FH during a blank GW. But I do agree with you I do think the BB and FH are better chips then the TC for DGW. But it really depends on which teams are affected.

              1. KDB4PREZ
                9 months, 29 days ago

                Awesome thanks for all responses guys much clearer view now.

              2. Trophé Mourinho
                9 months, 29 days ago

                you should wildcard one of the doubles a week before and get a bench, then use bench boost in that double. Then another double use triple captain, and freehit on a blank

  10. Eriksen Maestro

    Mount to Zaha for next 3 Gameweeks?

    Wolves (H), Norwich (H), West Ham (A) tempting

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      9 months, 29 days ago

      havent watched him tbh but his returns havent been inspiring. There is better punts, probably

    2. Cahill17
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Zaha form isn't the best and I think Cyrstal won't score many goals they are more of a def minded team. i think there are better options

    3. Trophé Mourinho
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Buendia could be a shrewd differential if you dont have cantwell btw

    4. tucaoneo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 29 days ago

      I think VAR has completely messed up Palace's winning strategy which is Zaha winning penalties. They have the most penalties in PL history and they haven't got any this season.

  11. ChelseaBlues223

    How long will Rico be first choice?

    1. Twitter: @Ze_Austin

      Probably GW5 only

      hopefully he can take his opportunity and impress Howe. If he does, who knows how long

    What to do here?

    Ryan - (Heaton)
    TAA - Zinc - Dinge - (Lund - Taylor)
    Salah - Sterling(c) - Lanzini - Mount** - (Dend)
    Pukki - Barnes - Haller

    0ft & 1.3itb. Thanks!

  14. Trophé Mourinho
    9 months, 29 days ago

    I thought that third goal was all Otas fault but in reality that was stones fault in the first place, passing it to Ota there when 2 players are himclosing down. And then when Stones realised his mistake he indicates to Ota to pass back to the keeper instead of clearing it. So its Otas lack of awareness, but Stones is just an idiot

    1. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 28 days ago

      Problem is that Pep will blame both... Ota owners lucky with Stones injury, otherwise he would have been benched. Now he can´t

  15. bennyp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Charlie Taylor news anyone? What's going on with him? Pieters fully taken his place?

    1. Little Frank
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      The way Dyche operates, it should be Pieters shirt to lose now.
      Having said that, there is a belief among Burnley fans that McNeil plays better with Taylor at LB, given that Taylor likes to overlap and give McNeil more options whereas Pieters is more defensive. Given that Burnley's fixtures are easing I wouldn't be surprised if Taylor comes back in so definitely one to monitor - I'd certainly be wary of bringing Pieters in atm.

  16. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 29 days ago

    It feels great having a really cheap but all playing bench atm. Even if Mount injury puts him out no need to worry with Cantwell, Peters and Rico on my bench!
    Just a bloody smart manager me 😉

    1. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      ps. just read the Stones injury news (so buying Otamandi last week for Laporte wasn't the smartest move lol)

        At least you didn't buy Stones.

    Hey guys, Choose one for me for long term. Im currently on KDB but i like SON ..... What will you guys do ?

    a) SON
    b) KDB

    Current team-

    Heaton- Ryan
    Hanley- Digne- TAA- Zinc- Lundstram
    Salah- Sterling- KDB- McGinn- Dendocker
    Pukki- Abraham- Barnes

    1. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      b) as much as I love Son I feel going double City attack in the short term is a better play.

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        Easy for me to say as I'll likely be doing Pepe to Son soon so will have the best of both worlds!

    2. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      KDB is better than Son. Stick.

    3. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      KDB. I want both but KDB better

        Wouldn't inspire me for this week either but you never know. I remember when I had Eriksen last year for an easy run of fixtures where he blanked and dropped him before the Man Utd game where he came good lol

        As for how my season is going:

      Apologies!

      I should have put the Manchester City score in the first paragraph where they lost to Norwich 3-2 :O

      660!! surely I have to give the Kun, KDB and Sterling triple up one more week right?

      Was thinking of kun/Lanzini to Abraham/Mane for free, but having second thoughts now...

      Will see how the Champions league pans out and decide.

          extort is a harsh way to put it
          they choose to pay him and tbf he does spend alot of time making content and he is helping a lot of people that are more clueless about the game

          1. jia you jia you

            yeah, wrong choice of word perhaps, but I just hate the idea of it myself...each to their own though!
            (I've seen Andy's podcast and it's very well done tbf unlike many of the others! But benching Pukki was silly hehe)

            1. ZimZalabim
              • 3 Years
              9 months, 29 days ago

              ya i agree benching pukki was a pretty poor decision but he seemed really set on it for some reason i think lundstram 14 pointer skewed his logic
              i benched cantwell for dunk to play 4-3-3 so i cant talk much but cantwell is no pukki 🙂

          Agree with you both. Very approachable style and seems to be good humoured. I even weirdly enjoy the terrible music.

  22. TorresMagic™
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 11 Years

    What would you do with this team?

    Pope Button
    Digne AWB Dunk Kelly Lundstram
    Sterling Mane KDB Mount Cantwell
    Aguero Pukki Wickham

    2FTs, 0.7 in bank

    Mount the obvious worry.

    Cheers in advance.

    1. ZimZalabim
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      kun and mount to tammy and son

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        Would need big minutes from Aguero to be tempted.

        1. ZimZalabim
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 29 days ago

          thats what im worried about, if he starts tomorrow cant see him starting at the weekend

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 11 Years
            9 months, 29 days ago

            Will be an interesting lineup, Sterling of most interest.

            1. ZimZalabim
              • 3 Years
              9 months, 29 days ago

              sterling i feel is a bit more secure, younger and there isnt really as clear an alternative as jesus is for aguero, but it is pep so who knows. hopefully both get a rest tomorrow

    2. waldo666
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Sort Kelly unless Mount is long term, bank the second.

    3. Liftbox
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      I think you need to wait for news but Kelly is the one I'd look to move.
      Not sure for who for now.

    4. mrtapio
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Can you afford Mount and Wickham to 4.5 and Abraham?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        Only 4.2 left.

    5. The Cisco Kid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Kelly to Rico maybe? Or Söyüncü if you want to upgrade? Obviously watch for news about Mount; if it’s short term, I think you feel pretty good about starting Cantwell. Not much flexibility with Wickham unless you want a bit of an overhaul. Also, do you like AWB? I imagine I would worry with him in the almost-premium defender spot.

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        Not much choice with Cantwell until I play 3 up front.

    6. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights

        With 2 FTs?

      2. dmhomag
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Oops. Then Mount Wick to Barnes + Hayden

    8. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      that defence of Dunk Kelly Lundstram with Wickham and Cantwell doesn’t give much wriggle room for injuries.

      I would lose one big hitter (rotation over CL period ?) and spread the cash

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        Will probably lose a City player this week or next.

    9. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Turn Wickham into a starting striker somehow as Cantwell may well regress significantly from now on.

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        Agreed, Aguero probably the bank soon.

      2. The Dance
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        Why would he regress? Nice fixtures for Norwich

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          9 months, 29 days ago

          Doesn't mean he's going to be in the points. West Ham was nice too.

        2. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 29 days ago

          Pukki main man and Buendia main creative force so feel Cantwell have overperformed by some way thus far...I could be very wrong of course...still a cracking fifth mid no doubt!

  23. Vasqujg
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 29 days ago

    My whole season is cursed and shamble. Mount injured and wrecked. Already made my trade for the week, hello “-4”!

    Feel bad for the young man too, this looks like a 4 to 5 week injury. Unless you are wolverine Harry Kane you can’t just recover like a GMO Human

    1. ZimZalabim
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      wait for news
      apparently he walked out through the mix zone unaided and was saying he hopes to be ready for the weekend
      just wait for the scan result and lampards presser

    2. The Dance
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      How on earth does it look like a 4-5 week injury?

        1. The Dance
          • 8 Years
          9 months, 29 days ago

          It appears like his foot slided in motion with the follow through, if it stayed still then defo would of been worse, but still not pretty. I don’t think he’ll be out for long, but yes maybe next game.

          1. The Dance
            • 8 Years
            9 months, 29 days ago

            Mount to Son otherwise.

      1. Vasqujg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 28 days ago

        It looks like a high-ankle sprain. That is American Talk, don't know what they call that injury in the Britannica.

        I sincerely hope he is ok and no big deal. But the way my season is going. I might as well quit and just make bacon and watch cartoons on Saturday mornings- with my kids.

        Wait for the presser and Dinnery interpretation before total panic, yep....that's the plan

    3. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      It'll take a couple of days before they can assess the severity if his injury.

    4. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      he is only yellow flagged with 75% chance of playing ?

  24. MikeLowrey
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 29 days ago

    Think I'll hold Martial unless he's confirmed out. What to do with the rest of my team (2FT)

    Pope
    TAA VVD Digne Soy
    Salah Sterling KDB Martial*
    Pukki Wesley

    (Button Lundy Cantwell Wickham)

    A) Burn FT on Wickham > 4.4M Striker (pocket 0.1m)
    B) VVD > Aurier, Wesley > Tammy or Haller
    C) VVD > Mings, Wesley > Wilson
    D) VVD > Rico, Martial > James, Wesley > Firmino (-4)

    1. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      C might be the best bet.
      I lost VVD for a hit this week.
      If feels wrong but just no CS about yet and fixtures not helping either. It will probably backfire. I will have VVD and TAA back in 5-6 weeks it's a short term punt we can play for now.
      Wilson maybe still under the radar compared to others and has ok fxtures too.

    2. Zlatanzo

    if kun starts tomorrow do you think he starts vs watford ?

    1. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Yes.

    2. The Dance
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      Debatable, may even give Jesus a start, Aguero bot getting any younger. Who knows.

    3. The Overthinker - I blame R…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 28 days ago

      Don't try to read too much.

      A fit Kun will always start

  26. Tomas_brolin
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 29 days ago

    Will wait for Mount news but if it’s longer term would a straight swap for Lamela be a good move?

    Don’t like James, Ceballos, McGinn in his price bracket

    1. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 29 days ago

      I don''t think Pamela is so nailed on. Is Lanzini in that price bracket?

      1. The Dance
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        I’ll be offloading Lanzini, looked useless against even Villa

        1. GreennRed
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          9 months, 29 days ago

          Worth noting. Seems to have played well in previous games and kept his place despite decent competition.

          1. The Dance
            • 8 Years
            9 months, 29 days ago

            Oh i agree, but West Ham don’t look great, and would prefer Son and Cantwell over Lanzini & Mount if he is confirmed out. They’re the moves i’m eyeing up anyway.

              Have to agree about lanzini. I'm one of his biggest fans, however, he just ain't getting the points. I'll keep for man utd as we did well against em at home last year, but next week I'll trade for mount

      Looks good matchup wise. Forwards are what's killing you.

        Thanks yeah. Got 0.7 ITB so thinking of downgrading VVD and upgrading Greenwood to Tammy/Wilson/Haller somehow

          Need to get a defender near 4m then.

      Looks good but I'm fearing for Pool's ability to keep cleansheets while Alison remains out.

      See what lineup City play.
      Could always downgrade Pickford but he has a good fixture.

    How does this look after GW6?

    Pepe + Lanzini + Kun to KDB + Son+ Firmino (-4)

      Looks an improvement considering the outs.

        9 months, 29 days ago

        Yeah, liking it atm if Mount is ok but only have 0.1 to sapre!

    2. ZimZalabim
      • 3 Years

      who are ur other strikers ? is firmino a vardy place holder or ur only liverpool asset ?

        I only have TAA, it would look like this:

        Sterling / Son / KDB / Mount / Cantwell
        Firmini / Pukki / Barnes

        1. ZimZalabim
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 29 days ago

          what about getting mane son and wilson/tammy instead of kdb and bobby

          1. jia you jia you
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            Yup, Mane looks hungry this season for sure but kind of want to keep double City attack.

    3. Nabs Kebabs

      Don't rate Firmino as an FPL option, think there is so much better value out there in strikers.

        I started with him and sold him after GW3 on WC which I kind of regretted. No LIV attacker until the fixture shift would be ok in my book too if I'm honest.

    4. Zlatanzo

      Wouldn't bother with Pepe to Son for a -4

      1. Nabs Kebabs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 29 days ago

        I'd do Pepe to son if a hit cost 12 points.

    If Moint's injury is serious how is this for a shake up: Mount, Robbo and Haller to Son, Mings and King? I have TAA and Digne..
