The Scout Squad picks for FPL Gameweek 7

The Scout Squad team have submitted their selections ahead of Gameweek 7.

In this piece, our four regular panelists – editorial staff Paul, David and Neale plus community manager Geoff – each submit an 18-man squad of Fantasy assets (with the focus on the coming Gameweek) and elaborate on their notable inclusions/omissions.

The 72 nominations listed below will then be narrowed down to a squad of 14 (with the starting XI not exceeding a total cost of £83m) for the weekly Scout Picks selection ahead of the Gameweek 7 deadline at 11:30 BST on Saturday.

There are requirements for at least one sub-£5.0m goalkeeper, at least one defender under £5.0m, at least one midfielder priced £7.0m or below and at least one forward priced at £7.0m or lower.

Each panelist is restricted to no more than three players from the same team.

We will also be adding a captaincy to the Scout Picks, with details of that revealed on Friday.

DAVID SAID…

The most likely team to keep a clean sheet in Gameweek 7 are Leicester in my opinion.

Newcastle have been very poor in front of goal recently, especially in away matches, so I’ve gone with both Kasper Schmeichel and Çaglar Söyüncü in my Scout Squad submission.

Against Chelsea, Trent Alexander-Arnold demonstrated once again why he is the best Liverpool option in defence and a trip to Sheffield United surely carries the potential for a double-figure haul again.

Cesar Azpilicueta is my chosen representative from the Chelsea defence. As Mr. Reliable in the Blues’ backline, he is top for key passes and joint-top for big chances created among colleagues in all positions over the last four Gameweeks.

Given Everton’s goal-scoring problems of late, the inclusion of nailed-on centre-back Nicolas Otamendi makes sense, while I fancy Serge Aurier to continue his attacking form against Southampton.

Mohamed Salah just about edges the best midfielder slot for me ahead of Gameweek 7 as I prefer his fixture to Raheem Sterling‘s.

Son Heung-min gets an inclusion against a dodgy Saints defence after registering three attacking returns in his last two appearances.

Both Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham have shown fine form in recent weeks and I’d expect them to continue that against a Brighton side that has generally struggled against Chelsea.

Meanwhile, in the probable absence of James Maddison, I’d expect Youri Tielemans to assume some of his creative responsibilities against Newcastle. While the Belgian has shot less often than Maddison in recent weeks, he is joint-top with the Englishman for key passes over the last four matches, ahead of him for big chances created during that period.

Sergio Aguero‘s form is too good to ignore going into Gameweek 7. The Manchester City forward is top of the league for shots, shots in the box and big chances across the last four matches and even if some think Everton will give him a hard time, and he has a poor record against them, it’s hard to see his output dropping this weekend.

Roberto Firmino and Sébastien Haller also make my selection up-front as they have displayed some promising underlying statistics in the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area in recent weeks.

NEALE SAID…

Sitting through the turgid goalless draw at St. James’ Park last Saturday stiffened my resolve to double up on Leicester’s backline this weekend, which I’ve done with Kasper Schmeichel and attack-minded full-back Ricardo Pereira.

The Foxes have the second-best xGC in the top flight this season, while Steve Bruce’s side have the worst xG – cue the inevitable Joelinton goal against the run of play.

I’ve doubled on Burnley’s defence, too, given that only Manchester United have allowed fewer big chances than the Clarets this season. With Villa having conceded the most opportunities from set plays in 2019/20, maybe James Tarkowski will finally come good on his goal threat; I can certainly see him and Ben Mee bullying Wesley out of the game at the other end.

Serge Aurier was second among FPL defenders for final third touches in Gameweek 6 and was desperately unfortunate to come away from Leicester with neither a clean sheet or a goal, so the visit of a Southampton side who have chronic problems at left-back gives the Ivorian a decent chance of banking returns at either end of the pitch.

I probably don’t need to discuss my attacking picks for Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs at any great length given their respective fixtures but I’ve tried to curb the spending slightly by omitting Mohamed Salah, who will be up against a dogged Sheffield United defence that hasn’t conceded more than two goals in a league match this season.

Aside from the usual suspects, I’ve plumped for a man yet to deliver an attacking return in 2019/20: Wilfried Zaha.

The Ivorian looked a little more like his old self on Sunday and no FPL midfielder had more touches in the last third or registered more take-ons in Gameweek 6. With poor travellers (and defenders) Norwich in town, perhaps the goal-shy Eagles can finally give the Selhurst Park faithful something to shout about.

Watford’s defensive woes are well-documented but Wolves have also been uncharacteristically porous this season, so the goals should rain at Molineux.

Two players who haven’t been harmed by moves to the left flank in recent weeks represent my mid-price forward punts, with Gerard Deulofeu and Diogo Jota having looked more like their 2018/19 incarnations in Gameweeks 5 and 6 respectively.

The versatile Adama Traore has also made my picks and gives us a much-needed budget option should we need to free up cash.

Whether he’s at wing-back or on the right of a front three this weekend, he could make hay against the ageing Jose Holebas with his pace. His end product has been improving, too, with his four successful crosses at Selhurst Park only been bettered by Kevin De Bruyne in Gameweek 6.

PAUL SAID…

Liverpool, Man City, Spurs and Chelsea have favourable fixtures that could merit backing all four at both ends of the pitch in our Gameweek 7 picks.

As usual, I’ll focus on a handful of differentials for the weekend’s matches.

An injury to his rival, Emerson, should hand Marcos Alonso a third straight start as Chelsea welcome Brighton to Stamford Bridge.

The Spaniard ranks among the top three defenders for crosses (12) and chances created (four) in the last two rounds of matches, earning an assist over that period.

Up against an attack with two goals in the last five Gameweeks, Alonso –who is owned by just 2.3% – can serve a timely reminder of his potential as a big-hitter at the back.

Andriy Yarmolenko is another overlooked option as West Ham visit Bournemouth’s frail defence.

The Ukrainian has scored in two of the last three fixtures and has decent numbers since earning his first start of the season in Gameweek 3.

Yarmolenko’s six shots in the box rank second for the Hammers during that period, with only two FPL midfielders surpassing his five efforts on target.

Quique Sanchez Flores’ return to Watford looks to have revived the prospects of Gerard Deulofeu.

Sitting in just 2.1% of squads, the former Barcelona man is the top-ranked forward for shots on target (seven) and chances created (eight) in the last two Gameweeks.

After last weekend’s mauling at the Etihad, Deulofeu could be among the points away to Wolves.

His hosts have yet to keep a clean sheet at Molineux, shipping five against Chelsea in the previous fixture in front of their own supporters.

GEOFF SAID…

Playing in the lone Sunday kick-off, Kasper Schmeichel looks great value against a Newcastle side who showed very little in Gameweek 6 against Brighton. Huge Lloris will look to help Tottenham bounce back against a goal-shy Southampton side, while Tom Heaton is looking for a third straight home clean sheet.

After Trent Alexander-Arnold, I opt for the attacking threat of Marcos Alonso over Fikayo Tomori, and pick Çaglar Söyüncü over the more expensive Ricardo Pereira. I expect Serge Aurier to come back into the side after missing out in midweek. In Gameweek 6, Tyrone Mings showed Arsenal exactly the kind of central defender they need. He’ll relish the battle against the strong Burnley forwards and could come out with a strong score.

Mohamed Salah and Raheem Sterling top my midfield picks but, with attacking returns in three straight Son Heung-min runs them close for a Spurs side who need a result after a poor run. Mason Mount embarks on a strong run of fixtures in Gameweek 7. I go off the board slightly with my fifth pick with Wilfried Zaha. Without attacking returns this season, I expect him to open his account against a shaky Norwich defence.

Harry Kane leads my line against Southampton, who have only one clean sheet this season. Tammy Abraham completes my Chelsea triple-up, with seven goals in the last four and his only blank against Liverpool. I also look to Jamie Vardy who is averaging two attacking returns per game against teams that finished outside of last season’s top seven. Finally, while Teemu Pukki has blanked in two straight away games and Crystal Palace have strong home form, I expect Norwich to score and Pukki to put a halt to those trends.

The Community Champion

Representing the community against the Scout Picks in Gameweek 7 will be The Greenback Boogie, who is currently lurking just outside the top 20k in the world.

Last week, Irfansheikh beat the Scout Picks 89-72 with a 3-4-3 line-up of Dubravka (6); Aurier (1), Pieters (7), Willems (6); Salah (5), De Bruyne (c – 34), D Silva (11), McNeil (6); Aguero (9), Rashford (2), Abraham (2).

The community member who beats our picks by the biggest margin over the campaign will win a £100 Amazon Voucher and a place in our Contributors and Moderators League for the following season.

Irfansheikh’s 17-point winning margin is now the target to beat.

    The punt in me would love to go Mahrez and Aurier over Mount and TAA on WC but i think that may be a punt too far

      Too punty. Go safe with taa and Mount, and the points will come your way in a steady flow.

    4. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years

      Mount Taa is the sensible punt 😉

    Anyone here has supporting stats that could help me decide between Salah vs. Kun for captaincy?

    I mean stuff like away goals, past scores vs their upcoming team matches, etc?

    upgrade Rico to Diop or bank it?

    1. Swills

      Bank

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      If you have Soyuncu get Diop they rotate well...and Rico is far from nailed..... their summer signing left back is now fit .

    I want to do VVD > TAA
    1. Bite the bullet and do it this week for -4.
    Gets the transfer out the way. Otherwise if waiting may never get the opportunity to bring in due to other priorities.
    2. Hold VVD.
    Hope TAA doesn’t rise too much and hope there’s no fires to put out next week. Then do it for free

    1. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      reads like you want 1. That trumps our opinions

      1. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        Thanks.
        In previous seasons I’d of made the move in a heartbeat but trying to put a little bit more thought into my moves.

    2. Bruno BaNani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      2. Don’t think it’s worth it for a hit. VvD could easily get a goal and some baps in the next match. Just do it for free next gw.

      1. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        Yeh that’s the sensible thing to do but TAA could always be 1 transfer away.

    3. Babit1967
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      2

    4. Rhodes your boat
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Wait and do it for free not worth a hit imho

    5. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      I had the same dilemma and decided in the end to stick and hope for the best!

      I still have WC and would rather not take the hit for a move that could likely be totally sideways.

  7. TeddiPonza
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 3 days ago

    Do you think Hanley will start against Palace?

    1. Bruno BaNani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Maybe. That mf bloke that has been playing instead, had a horrible match last one.

  8. Swills
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 3 days ago

    RMT - I’ve gone very attack heavy
    Pope (Button)
    Aurier Matip Rico Kelly (Lundstram)
    Salah[c] Sterling Mount KDB (Guendouzi)
    Tammy Aguero (Greenwood)

    - can always downgrade salah to mane or sterling to like son to improve defence.

    1. Rhodes your boat
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Doesn’t look too bad but you may have to drop aguero/sterling so you’re not playing 2 of the 5 cheap options every week

    Pope
    TAA - VVD - AWB
    Sterling - KDB - Son - Mount
    Abraham - Pukki - Barnes

    (4.0 Cantwell Digne Lund)
    0 ft & 0.0m

    A) Digne to Otamendi (-4)
    B) AWB to Soyuncu (-4)

    To me both transfers look worth a hit long term and both Everton & United have a tough fixtures this week. Also need to start shifting funds from defence to attack.
    Can't see myself having a FT next few weeks to make this move.

    1. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      I don't really understand the 'worth a hit long term' argument vs waiting a week. But A could be worth a hit this week

    2. Hasselbaink Forever - UJFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Why not AWB > Otamendi?

      Digne is better than AWB.

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        Rather bench a 5.5m def than 6m.
        Can't see myself starting AWB/Digne over Ota, VVD & TAA

      2. Cilly Bonnolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        Because he has no money in the bank and can’t afford that transfer.

    4. Zladan
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Could be a reason to justify a wildcard?

      VVD Digne AWB Barnes I imagine you want gone.

      Then also gives the chance to finally do Sterling to Aguero.

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        Already used my wildcard unfortunately.

        Yup those are players I won't gone but I can do that with my next 3 transfers.

        Plan is to do VVD & Barnes to Vardy & Soyuncu in GW9.

    5. Bruno BaNani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Either save the transfer, or do Digne to Tomori, and use the extra cash to upgrade Barnes or whomever else in the future.

    8. redsallstars
      5 months, 3 days ago

      AWB for Aurier, spurs nice fixtures esp at home. Think Aurier is more nailed on since KWP played in league cup. Aurier higher ceiling of points than Soy. Do Digne for Ota next week

  11. Yordan Letchkov

    Heaton
    TAA Tomori Rico

    What would you change? Unlimited xfers.

    1. chilli con kone
      • 6 Years

      I think you should have 3 city in there on wildcard. Defence is a touch light I would use the 0.4

    2. Bruno BaNani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      WC?
      Heaton to Pope, and Dendo to Hayden.
      And try to squeeze in Soy for one of your cheapos in defence.

      1. Zladan
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        Yep on WC.

        Looking at Pope for sure, nice fixtures upcoming.

        Would have to be Tomori v Soy, but feel there is more potential in Chelsea over next 8 or so weeks.

        1. Bruno BaNani
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

          Can u have taa, Tomori, lowton/Soy, Lund, Rico/Hanley?

    3. Alberto Tomba
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Looks good, though Liverpool and Lundstram have VsX. I'd swap Soyuncu and Sterling in.

      1. Zladan
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        Will have to wait for another Sterling price fall and replace Mane.

    4. Freddiebell

      You need another city player. Maybe Otamendi.

      1. Zladan
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        Yep. Thinking that is required. Just need to lose either Pukki or Mount.

    Who do I captain?

    Sterling(eve)

    2. Bruno BaNani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Son has the best fixture, but Spurs the worst form. Would still (C) him though.

    3. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      B

  14. FDMS All Starz
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 3 days ago

    A) TAA. & Robbo (442)

    Or

    B) Son & Guilbert (352) rotate Guilbert with Lundstram

    Play one (unfortunately)

    A. Dendo (WAT)
    B. Lundstram (liv)
    C. Greenwood (ARS)

    A currently but not sure on his chances of starting.

      I own all three and will start Dendoncker.

      1. FDMS All Starz
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        Dendonker played poor last game, will probably be benched weekend

          Didn't feature at all last night which gives me hope he'll be involved.

    4. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Greenwood probably deserves a start now after the Europa and league cup performances, the other two I see getting 1pt

    What to do with Digne?

    A- Pereira (NEW)
    B - Aurier (SOU)
    C- Save and play Rico (WHU)

    already have Soyuncu but leaving towards Pereira due to their fixtures

    Thanks

    1. chilli con kone
      • 6 Years

      I’d be tempted by Tomori or save and play Rico

      1. Bruno BaNani
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        I’m doing this aswell.

      What's the rest of your defence? Ideally, you don't want to start both Pereira and Soyuncu next week.

    4. Iggy pop
      • 3 Years

      im keeping him, but will bench this week, will take 2 FT's into next week!

      Cheers. Have tomori already

      Defence is

      Digne Soy Tomori Rico Lunny.

      If I sign Aurier I can play him next two weeks. Pereria has longer term better fixtures tho. Hmm. If in doubt save I suppose ?

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        Hmm, Pereira does leave you a bit thin next week, especially with Soyuncu, Rico at Arsenal, and Tomori away.

        1. FPL Panda
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 3 days ago

          Yep. Would play Tomori Lundstram and Pereira most likely

  17. fcsaltyballs
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 3 days ago

    Sheffield United beat Everton comfortably 2-0 last week. Liverpool play SHU and Man City play EVE (both away) yet Salah is a more popular captain choice than both Sterling and KDB....

    1. fr3d
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      That's not how football works

    2. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Because all attacks run through Salah from Liverpool and he is on pens...city could win 0-2 without sterling or Kdb involved as they have many other talented players...having said that I fully expect both Liverpool and city to score 3+ this weekend

    Pope
    TAA/Ota/Aurier/Soy
    Mane/Son/KDB
    Auba/Pukki/Abraham

    Button/Cantwell/Hayden/Lund

    1. Bruno BaNani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Agree. I’d even consider KdB in the mix.

    2. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years

      Nice team. Would prefer Aguero instead of Aub though

    3. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      With the team you have there I'd cap KDB . I'm captaining Sterling

    Who scores more this GW:

    Aguero away v Everton?
    Kane home v Southampton?

    1. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      My guess Kane because of home game and Kun can always be hooked at 60th min, both should do well though

    2. Super Saints
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Aguerooooo

  22. Zladan

    Aguero

      In that order

    2. sunzip14

      KDB, Sterling, Son, Auba

    3. valurth

  23. n14mul
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 3 days ago

    Anyone been brave enough to do Salah and Mane in a team?

    1. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Think they take up too much cash together, if Mane was however 10mil or Salah was 11mil I’d defo have both

      1. n14mul
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        But same as having sterling and Salah in one team?

        1. FDMS All Starz
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 3 days ago

          But you will miss out on weeks like last week if you had both Liverpool players, also gives you a wider captain choice, as you would almost always favour Salah over Mane captain each week

        2. jtreble
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 3 days ago

          No. Not at all.

    2. chilli con kone
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      City double/triple is more lucrative on current fixtures. May well do so in 5/6 gameweeks or so

      1. chilli con kone
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        City just won 8-0 you can’t ignore that

    3. n14mul
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      I don't have both nor considering it but alot people had both last year and wondering has anyone or many done the same this year.

      I Agree city attackers are too hard to ignore especially with KDB back this season

  24. Pep Roulette

  25. Bruno BaNani
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 3 days ago

    You are playing 4-4-3, with 2x Lund.

    I’d do Digne to Tomori/Soy, and Dendo to Mount. Will cost you a hit, but will repay you fast enough.

    If possible Greenwood to Abraham, instead of Dendo to Mount.

    Thoughts on Soyuncu vs tomori? Already have Abraham, might try to downgrade defence to get in Mount over McGinn too.

    1. chilli con kone
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      I’m leaving it one week on Tomori and saving FT. Soy currently if it was a straight choice

    2. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Soy for a better defence and a nailed starter

    3. Goat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Söyüncü would beat he sh1t out of him.

    4. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Tomori

  28. Cilly Bonnolly
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    5 months, 3 days ago

    How long are we expecting Alonso to get starts? Used one of my free transfers last night to do Haller to Abraham and I’ve earmarked the other one to replace Digne. I’ll hold off till tomorrow night at least but just considering options. It’s always been really fun owning Alonso and have exact money for him but also considering Soyuncu or Pieters to give myself more cash to play with elsewhere in future.

    1. King Holebas
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Until Emerson comes back I believe so probably after international break

      1. Cilly Bonnolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        Tempted to get him for a bit then downgrade then. Like I say, I’ve always loved owning him.

    2. Bruno BaNani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      He did get praise from Fat Frank after the lpool match, but he’ll probably only be a placeholder until Emerson returns, and the last injury was supposedly not that serious.

      Would rather go for Soy/Lowton/Pieters/Tomori and use the extra money elsewhere.

      1. Cilly Bonnolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        That’s probably the sensible move right enough.

  29. fc_skrald
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 3 days ago

    I don't get the Digne benching just because he plays ManC - he will still take corners and free kicks, right?

    1. King Holebas
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      He'll probably still lose points from goals conceded to be fair

    2. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      ... and no clean sheet, right?

    3. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      But Everton will be lucky to score 1 goal, Max 2 goals so I’d not bank on him getting attacking points, City will dominate possession

    4. Cilly Bonnolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Everton are terrible.

    5. Bruno BaNani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Will probably still end up with 1 or 0.

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

      Have you seen Everton this season? They are awful.

  30. Alberto Tomba
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 3 days ago

    Loads of great Captain choices this week eh:

    Aguero - rested midweek, scoring every game
    Kane - looks like he's building momentum (stats at least), easy home fixture
    Son - as above, also looking very sharp
    Sterling - partially rested midweek, missed out on the 8-0 win
    KDB - rested, on form, great stats even amongst city last week
    Salah, Mane & Firmino - easy fixture, all rested midweek
    Abraham - looked sharp against lfc, will want to make up for not scoring in this easy home fixture

    Am I missing anyone, or are there any bad options from these?

    1. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Liverpool's fixture is far from easy, but I understand the shouts to captain Salah.

      I'd add Vardy to that list too.

      1. Alberto Tomba
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        away to Sheffield! Haven't they looked a mixed bunch so far?

        Vardy is a great shout. He looks ready to burst eh. Especially as Maddison has broken his duck for the season, he may be looking for the main man again.

        1. avfc82
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 3 days ago

          Maddison's prob out, but Vardy still a good shout, IMO.

          Sheffield United putting up good defensive numbers. I see Liverpool winning but it won't be easy.

          1. Alberto Tomba
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            5 months, 3 days ago

            Hmm, interesting, another 2-0 or 2-1 victory perhaps. I've watched all lfc matches this season, and Salah looked tired last weekend to be fair.

            Incredible rank history you have - excellent focus.
